Zcash is a decentralized and open-source cryptocurrency that offers privacy and selective transparency of transactions. Zcash payments are published on a public blockchain, but the sender, recipient, and amount of a transaction remain private. Zcash is based on peer-reviewed cryptographic research, and built by a security-specialized engineering team on an open source platform based on Bitcoin Core's battle-tested codebase. Our improvement over Bitcoin is the addition of privacy. Zcash uses advanced cryptographic techniques, namely zero-knowledge proofs, to guarantee the validity of transactions without revealing additional information about them. How Zcash works Zcash encrypts the contents of shielded transactions. Since the payment information is encrypted, the protocol uses a novel cryptographic method to verify their validity. Zcash uses a zero-knowledge proof construction called a zk-SNARK, developed by our team of experienced cryptographers based on recent breakthroughs in cryptography. These constructions allow the network to maintain a secure ledger of balances without disclosing the parties or amounts involved. Instead of publicly demonstrating spend-authority and transaction values, the transaction metadata is encrypted and zk-SNARKs are used to prove that nobody is cheating or stealing. Zcash also enables users to send public payments which work similarly to Bitcoin. With the support for both shielded and transparent addresses, users can choose to send Zcash privately or publicly. Zcash payments sent from a shielded address to a transparent address reveal the received balance, while payments from a transparent address to a shielded address protect the receiving value.

ECC's @least_nathan will join @AlenaSatoshi, @RoceloLopes, @vikmeup and @claudsdayz for a panel discussion at @laBITconf: "Digital Privacy in Crypto." Monday, Dec. 7, 15:05 ART

Thank you @ElectricCoinCo for believing in @gitcoin grants; Super happy with how the Zcash Grants pilot went.


Performance improvements thanks to our @gitcoin funding are now available on iOS and Android!

On modern phones, Zecwallet Lite can now sync ~2000 blocks/sec - About 5 seconds to sync a week's worth of blocks!

Rolling out on iOS and Android now!

Ten projects received 156 donations totaling $2,137. An additional 351.7 $ZEC (worth over $25,000 at today’s price) in matching funds were distributed to those projects based on @Gitcoin’s Quadratic Funding mechanism.
