Zcash is a digital currency, or cryptocurrency, like Bitcoin. In fact, Zcash was built on the original Bitcoin code base. It is a privacy-protecting, digital currency built on strong science that goes above and beyond other cryptocurrencies. With Zcash, you control what information you share. Shielded addresses and their associated balances are not visible on the blockchain. Payment disclosure and special “viewing keys” can be used to share transaction details with trusted third parties for compliance or audits. ZCash Chief Operating Officer Jack Gavigan talks to CryptoLingo about the project and privacy coins.
