Zcash can protect the privacy of transactions using zero-knowledge cryptography.

Want to make a transaction, but completely hide the amount from prying eyes? Introducing Zcash. It has the ability to protect the privacy of transactions using zero-knowledge cryptography.

This article had a very slight update on October 2, 2018.

“If Bitcoin is like http for money, Zcash is https—a secure transport layer.” – Zcash


Bitcoin and most altcoins have a transparent transaction history. Anyone can check a public address and look at how many coins it has.* Zcash makes everything anonymous.

With Zcash’s “shielded transactions”, both parties can choose to anonymize the transaction completely.

*Note that anyone can check the funds in a public address but there is no way to know who is the person behind it.

How does it work?

For example, Person A wants to send 1 ZEC to Person. Both of them have to use their “z-addr”. The miners will then approve the transaction using *zk-SNARKS. If they want to use the conventional transaction, they can use their “t-addr” or transparent address.

*zk-SNARKS – Zero-Knowledge Succinct Non-Interactive Argument of Knowledge – It is the process of proving a transaction without revealing any information.

Value Activity

ZEC coins price surged on December 2017 around $308.51 a piece. It reached its highest on January 8, 2018 of around $876.31. As the time we write this, ZEC’s price is around $284.54.
