More Info About Coin

Zcash is a decentralized and open-source cryptocurrency that offers privacy and selective transparency of transactions. Zcash payments are published on a public blockchain, but the sender, recipient, and amount of a transaction remain private.Zcash is based on peer-reviewed cryptographic research, and built by a security-specialized engineering team on an open source platform based on Bitcoin Core's battle-tested codebase. Our improvement over Bitcoin is the addition of privacy. Zcash uses advanced cryptographic techniques, namely zero-knowledge proofs, to guarantee the validity of transactions without revealing additional information about them.How Zcash worksZcash encrypts the contents of shielded transactions. Since the payment information is encrypted, the protocol uses a novel cryptographic method to verify their validity.Zcash uses a zero-knowledge proof construction called a zk-SNARK, developed by our team of experienced cryptographers based on recent breakthroughs in cryptography. These constructions allow the network to maintain a secure ledger of balances without disclosing the parties or amounts involved. Instead of publicly demonstrating spend-authority and transaction values, the transaction metadata is encrypted and zk-SNARKs are used to prove that nobody is cheating or stealing.Zcash also enables users to send public payments which work similarly to Bitcoin. With the support for both shielded and transparent addresses, users can choose to send Zcash privately or publicly. Zcash payments sent from a shielded address to a transparent address reveal the received balance, while payments from a transparent address to a shielded address protect the receiving value.Check out CoinBureau for guide on What is ZCash.

Zero knowledge proofing is one of those concepts that sounds outright magical when explained.

The software engineering that it took to bring it to reality is simply unbelievable! 🤯🤯🤯


Big news for #Zcash custodian, our friends @Anchorage this week. This "provides a legal green light for big banks and other traditional financial companies to use Anchorage as a means to offer Bitcoin and other digital currencies to their customers."

In 2020, we released 9 versions of Zcashd, executed the 4th and 5th #Zcash network upgrades, released some breakthrough cryptographic research, open-sourced the ECC mobile wallet for iOS and Android, and more. ✅ https://electriccoin.co/blog/electric-coin-co-engineering-2020-a-year-in-review/
