General ZEC facts, technical details and general information about Zcash crypto currency
ZCash appeared on the market in the fall of 2016. It stands out among other crypto currencies as the first coin created on the basis of a new zero-knowledge proof protocol also known as zk-SNARK protocol. The uniqueness of this protocol lies in the ability to confirm the reliability of information without disclosing data about the parties to the transaction and its amount (the only information disclosed is the fact of transaction itself). Such an algorithm allows us to talk about the truly absolute anonymity of this payment system.
The base for creating this digital currency was laid for 3 years before its presentation, as early as 2013. The development of ZCash (ZEC) involved a whole team of cryptographers from the world's most famous universities; they are still cooperating with the company, and their work is paid by a percentage of the income of the miners.
A full-scale software for mining ZEC coins was issued in October 2016. To install it, one needs to have Linux as operating system, and random-access memory of at least 4GB.

I have no doubt that in a few years, ZCash, and some other privacy coins, will remain the only haven for true cryptopunks like me. The global governments are already laying their greasy hands on many non-privacy crypto solutions while bashing...

ZEC lost its momentum after the market stopped caring about Anon coins. This was such a popular topic and then suddenly everyone didn’t care anymore. Could it be because everyone wants banks to join the party? Definitely. No one wants to invest in...

ZEC and all the other anon currencies are beginning to lose their luster. Everyone is rooting for the big banks and corporations to adopt their currency. Before the trend of crypto and blockchain everyone wanted their coins to be anonymous because...

Zcash is about to undergo another big hard fork. It's called Overwinter and this is a big catalyst to net a comfortable profit on a coin that otherwise has been fairly lackluster. I think jumping into coins when they announce that they will either...

There's other privacy coins that I trust moving funds around in more than ZEC. The reason is because ZEC allows public transactions and this will allow blokchain analysis groups to eventually track and trace my movements. zk-SNARKs is the best...
