Monero is a cryptocurrency which claims to be “private, and decentralized”. One of Monero’s main tools towards this privacy is the ring signature. Ring signatures allow you to sign on behalf of a group, without revealing which member of the group you are. They can be constructed as an elegant extension of Schnorr signatures, and aren’t all that hard to understand either.
