Developed on the basis of the Zero Cash cryptographic protocol, Zcash’s crypto currency has relatively recently appeared on the market, but is already rapidly gaining worldwide popularity. Zcash has an open source code and is highly confidential in its operations.
Crypto currency Zcach allows you to hide information about the amount of the transaction, the sender and the recipient. In this case, payments remain available as an open chain of blocks. Such selective confidentiality also became a certain “chip” of Zcash.
Zcash: basic information, background
Electronic cash within the Zerocash cryptographic protocol was used to process and improve by a group of scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Johns Hopkins University, the Israel Technological and Tel Aviv universities.
In 2014, a group of cryptographers created a new crypto currency, which, unlike Zerocoin, kept privacy not only in the aspect of information about the sender, but also made the amount of payment unavailable for viewing. Experts estimate the high efficiency of the Zerocash protocol in comparison with Zerocoin.
The date of appearance on the market Zcash is January 2016, when the general director Zuko Vilkos made an official statement on the release of Zcash. The symbol for the Zcash-ZEC crypto currency (ticker on the stock exchanges). The start of the mining took place on October 28, 2016. It is believed that from this day Zcash is an independent crypto currency and is not classified as a certain addition (branch) that has become a classic Bitcoin.
The issue of Zcash is limited to a quantity of 21 million coins. The time to create a new block is 2.5 minutes. The main advantages of Zkesch are:
Confidentiality of the crypto currency is provided by a high level of protection. Zcash protects not only the name of the sender and the recipient, but also the amount of the transaction
The developers of Zcach argue about the great opportunities for the emergence of new applications within the framework of evidence without disclosure, on which the technology of blockade is based
In Zcash there is no connection of coins with the history in the chain. This guarantees the interchangeability of the crypto currency.
