What is Zcash?

Zcash (ZEC) is a decentralized 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 82nd largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $1,590,426,716. The current price of Zcash is $132.18, which is -2.313% lower than yesterday.
