Zcash general information

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.
