What is Zcash (ZEC)?

Zcash is a blockchain similar to Bitcoin, but anonymous and not pseudonymous. When verifying transactions, there is the possibility of not passing on sensitive data. As with Bitcoin, all transactions that take place on the Zcash blockchain can be monitored. In contrast to Bitcoin, zCash annonymizes the actual sender and receiver address. In addition to anonymization, transactions can also be carried out transparently, which increases the possible number of transactions per second.

Cryptohunt's Opinion

Our take on Zcash

A common misperception about crypto is that all blockchains provide perfect anonymity. In practice, everyone leaves traces behind when using crypto. ZCash was founded by researchers who saw these anonymity problems as a fundamental flaw of Bitcoin, and have given cryptocurrency back its anonymity. ZCash comes with drawbacks though. Because it is based on Bitcoin, a now arguably outdated technology, it is also slower and less planet friendly than newer blockchains. In addition, the creators pay themselves an automatic 20% of all new mined coins, which some think is unfair.
