What is Zcash?

Zcash is a privacy-preserving cryptocurrency providing anonymous value transfer using zero-knowledge cryptography. The protocol provides the option for transactions to be private, in which case they will be completely anonymous. And also 'transparent', in which case they will be visible on the Zcash blockchain.

Zcash was first released on October 28, 2016, originally based on Bitcoin’s codebase
