Zcash (ZEC) is a decentralized and open source cryptocurrency that focuses on providing more privacy to its users. Details of the sender, recipient and transaction value can be hidden. The Zcash blockchain is public, with the optional option of protecting transaction information if the user so wishes. Initially, Zcash came from the Zerocoin protocol, a proposal by Matthew D. Green, a cryptographer from Jon Hopkins University to increase Bitcoin’s privacy features. The project became Zerocash, before it became Zcash in 2016. The project is led by Zooko Wilcox-O’Hearn and has the team of researchers and engineers responsible for creating Zcash’s unique privacy features. Although the Zcash blockchain is public, it still maintains fungibility by encrypting every transaction in the blockchain. When creating currencies without a transaction history, the value of each currency can remain the same. This protects the coins from floating value depending on where they have been previously. Zcash promotes itself as the «https» version of Bitcoin.
