Systems and methods are provided for creating and modifying smart contracts. A method for creating a smart contract can include receiving one or more commands that include a parameter for the smart contract and generating, based on the one or more commands, an entry that is part of an agreement structure. The method can also include receiving input from different devices that approve the entry in the agreement structure as well as generating one or more milestones associated with the smart contract. The milestones can be converted and saved using a distributed ledger technology such as blockchain.

Some embodiments disclose the use of zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs) to prevent or at least mitigate privacy compromises that can occur to transactions conducted on distributed ledger-based networks (DLNs). In particular, some embodiments disclose methods and systems where ZKPs can be used to keep confidential or at least mitigate public revelation of private trasaction data due to the analyses of the transaction fee or gas paid to facilitate the transaction on the DLN.
