What is Zcash?

Zcash (ZEC) is a decentralised open-source cryptocurrency that offers transaction privacy through the use of zero-knowledge cryptography. This means that every transaction is shielded, and it hides the sender, the recipient and the amount of the transaction on the blockchain. However, ZEC is not completely anonymous. Every payment is visible on the public blockchain – only the participants in the transactions and the amounts are hidden.

Zcash (ZEC) is the 70th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $2,190,351,948. The current price of Zcash is $187.02, which is 9.278% higher than yesterday. Prices have ranged between $186.96 and $166.91 over the past 24 hours. All prices are listed in US dollars and accurate as of October 24, 2021 04:10 UTC.

How to sell Zcash

You can cash out your ZEC with the same exchange you bought it through:

  1. Sign in to the exchange you have ZEC on.
    If you store your Zcash in a digital wallet, compare crypto exchanges to sell it on.
  2. Place a sell order.
    Choose the amount of ZEC you'd like to sell.
  3. Complete your transaction.
    Confirm the sell price and fees and close your sale of Zcash.

What to consider when buying Zcash

ZEC uses a zero-knowledge cryptography, known as zk-SNARK (zero-knowledge Succinct Non-interactive Arguments of Knowledge), developed by the team behind ZEC. Zero-knowledge proof works by allowing one party to prove to another that a statement is true without revealing any information beyond the validity of the statement. This allows the network to maintain a secured ledger while keeping sender, recipient and amount transferred private. In addition to this, you should consider the points below if you want to buy ZEC:
  • Use — ZEC is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency which uses zero-knowledge cryptography. While transaction payments are visible on the public blockchain, participants and amounts are hidden.
  • Availability. ZEC is one of the more popular cryptocurrencies and is available on a number of crypto exchanges. You can also buy ZEC with a credit card and with fiat currencies.
  • Market competition. ZEC is a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency but does not provide full anonymity. Cryptocurrencies similar to ZEC, some of which are completely anonymous, are Monero, Bytecoin, Dash, Verge, Spectrecoin, CloakCoin, Hush, NavCoin and PIVX.

Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Zcash, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of ZEC is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision. Finder, or the author, may have holdings in the Zcash or any other cryptocurrency discussed.
