Recently, more and more articles and information about cryptocurrency have appeared on the Internet and in the press.
We are told about its advantages, properties, usability.
Nevertheless, the cryptocurrency is almost never used as a payment.
Banks and payment systems are in no hurry to use cryptocurrency.

Let’s see how the banks and the SWIFT system interact:

It seems that everything is simple, everything is verified, it is possible to carry out the movement of cryptocurrency.

So why is this not happening?
What prevents cryptocurrency to be used as a means of payment?

When we come to the bank and replenish our account or transfer money using credit cards, the person verification procedure is carried out.
And it turns out that anonymity, which is considered one of the main advantages of cryptocurrency, in this case is its disadvantage.
Anonymity becomes an obstacle to legal cash flow.

Let’s take a look at the revised scheme:

How do we solve this problem?
In addition, there are many different cryptocurrencies that have their own blockchain.
That is, we need to develop a single algorithm for existing cryptocurrencies.

We define questions to solve our problem:
1. Anonymity.
2. Single algorithm.

- Let’s start with the second question.
At this stage of development, it became possible to use cryptocurrency from various blockchains in the Ethereum network
To do this, you need to create a wrapped version of the cryptocurrency in the form of “ERC” token.
There are already options such as WETH, WBCH and WBTC.
We see the possibility of bringing cryptocurrency to a single standard.

- First question.
To solve this problem, we used the standard ERC functions of tokens and added a new function to the smart contract, with which you can sign a transaction or add the necessary information to it for any existing ERC token with these properties.
That is, we solve the problem of checking the movement of funds by creating a kind of gateway in the form of a “ZENITH Protocol” to solve it.

Now let’s take a look at the obtained solution of the tasks in the form of a schematic image:
