The Upcoming Launch of Anonymous Project Zcash (The Cryptoverse #128)

On today’s episode of The Cryptoverse:
On October 28 the Zcash (ZEC) project will release its genesis block into the wild. There’s a lot of anticipation for this project, because it will deploy zero-knowledge security. Thanks to this, developers believe Zcash will be a truly anonymous ledger that doesn’t leak or reveal transaction data.

  1. forget z coin and all others … bitcoin has 82% of the crypto currencies market … when will you realise all these other coins are not going to rival btc … everyday there's a new coin that claims to be the next Billy big balls of the crypto world but isnt … and why is everyone so keen to make anonymous transactions ??? clearly whatever your doing Is not legal!! …

  2. Hi – what do you think of cloud mining and their involvement into the release of a new cryptocurrency? Genesis mining offers pre-mining packages currently, it appears to be a thrilling and risky investment opportunity… it kinda loosens the market barrier for the masses, Are you in?

  3. zcash = trusted set up, no way to check if broken. complete insanity to use it if there are crypto that have perfect anonymity already without these issues.

  4. Nice-hash has a Windows miner for Zcash but it converts it to BTC as your payout. There's no windows miner "yet" that will allow you keep your coins. Hopefully that will change soon.

  5. CredaCash is another new cryptocurrency that uses Zero Knowledge Proofs to achieve complete privacy and fungibility. Most importantly, CredaCash can create a completely private transaction in 3 seconds, while it takes Zcash around 2 minutes. This speed up was accomplished by optimizing the Zero Knowledge Proof algorithm. For a more complete comparison, see
