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 65th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $712,657,758. The current price of Zcash is $55.25, which is -1.874% lower than yesterday. Prices have ranged between $57.18 and $55.26 over the past 24 hours. All prices are listed in US dollars and accurate as of October 02, 2022 05:10 UTC.

What is Bnb?
Binance Coin (BNB) is the token native for Binance and its blockchain-based ventures. The coin can be used to interact with the Binance cryptocurrency exchange as well as the ever-evolving DeFi ecosystem on the Binance Smart Chain network.
On the Binance exchange, BNB provides users with discounts on trading fees, serves as a trading pair for coins and is used on the Binance Decentralized Exchange (DEX). Fees paid in BNB are periodically “burnt”, which means they are permanently removed from circulation, which in turn decreases the supply and theoretically increases the value. Binance will continue to burn coins until the supply is reduced from 200 million to 100 million.
BNB is also used on the exchange to participate in launchpad events, which are similar to Initial Coin Offerings (ICO).
On the Binance Smart Chain (a smart contract platform developed by Binance based on Ethereum’s codebase), BNB is used to pay gas fees and has a central role in many DeFi applications (dapps). In this way, it is very similar to the role of ETH on Ethereum.
For instance, users can deposit BNB to provide liquidity on the PancakeSwap DEX or be traded for BEP-20 tokens (The BSC version of ERC-20 tokens).
