CryptoCoin.com: Zcash (ZEC)

Zcash (ZEC)

0.0288 BTC
(Source: Poloniex, 20 minutes ago)

Zcash (ZEC) is a decentralised, open-source cryptocurrency launched in October 2016 as a fork of Bitcoin. Its main focus is on privacy and anonymity of transactions. The project uses a technology called "Zerocash", a cryptographic currency protocol that does not reveal the origin, destination and the amount of the payment in the blockchain; instead, the correctness of the transaction is demonstrated via the use of a cryptographic concept called "zero-knowledge proof". Like Bitcoin, Zcash is a proof-of-work cryptocurrency generated by mining with a total supply set at 21 million coins. The block time is just 2.5 minutes (four times faster than Bitcoin's), but the reward is initially set to 12.5 ZEC per block (four times fewer than Bitcoin's). For mining, Zcash uses the Equihash hashing algorithm. Zcash is a heavily-funded corporate entity which has introduced a "founders' reward" where 10% of all mined coins is being distributed to the stakeholders in the Zcash Company.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 15 (10.7), 6 months: 16 (9.8), 3 months: 18 (5.2), 4 weeks: 21 (4.3), 1 week: 32 (3.1)
