Privacy by Default is a goal of the Elixxir Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? If privacy is optional, true privacy can never be obtained. Optional privacy also makes mistakes possible, one clear payment can pollute your entire history. I do foresee an epic hurdle for privacy by default coins because of government intervention and regulations, it's already starting in France
