The coin is Privacy-focused. The official Zcash website is https://z.cash.

Zcash is a privacy-protecting, digital currency built on strong science. Project development started in 2013:  Johns Hopkins University professor Matthew D. Green and his graduate students Ian Miers and Christina Garman proposed a "Zerocoin" privacy protocol, an extension of the Bitcoin protocol that would make bitcoin transactions anonymous by adding the "mixing" capabilities native support. In 2014 Zerocoin developers teamed with scientists and top cryptographers from various countries: Israel Institute of Technology and Tel Aviv University; Massachusetts Institute of technology in the US; UC Berkeley, Technion, etc.

The team decided to enhance the protocol and to use a native blockchain rather than being "a supplement to Bitcoin", the project got name Zerocash Protocol and the Zcash was introduced in 2016. A zero-knowledge proof is a cryptographic principle that allows transactions to be verified without revealing the sender, receiver or transaction amount. Zcash uses "zk-SNARKs", a novel form of zero-knowledge cryptography that shields all the transactions. Like Bitcoin and most of the other cryptos, Zcash transaction data is posted to a public blockchain; but unlike Bitcoin, Zcash ensures the personal and transaction data remain completely confidential if the sender of a transfer decides so. Selective disclosure allows a user to share some transaction details, for purposes of compliance or audit; fully transparent transactions without any details hidden are also possible, since exchanges, wallet providers and some other businesses usually utilize such forms of transfers.

  • There is also a "Zcoin" (XZC) cryptocurrency based on Zerocoin Protocol, that's a completely different platform, not related no ZCash or Electric Coin company.
