Zcash —An open source cryptocurrency developed by Zerocoin Electric Coin Company that provides privacy and selective transaction transparency. Zcash payments are published in a public blockchain, but the sender, receiver, and transaction amount remain private. The Zcash trademark, ZEC, is not an official ISO 4217. The minimum transfer value – 10-8 ZEC – was called “kill”, by analogy with “satoshi” – the same amount of bitcoin. Like Bitcoin, Zcash has a fixed maximum total stock of 21 million units. The average block formation time is 150 seconds (2.5 minutes). It was announced on January 20, 2016.
The level of anonymity of Zcash is noted by many well-known companies and individuals. For example, WikiLeaks began accepting donations to Zcash, Edward Snowden called cryptocurrency the most interesting alternative to Bitcoin, and Europol officially expressed concern about the growing popularity of cryptocurrency.

The impossibility of compromising. The history of the origin of the coin cannot be established.
Guaranteed anonymity. By using a zero-knowledge proof protocol, only the sender and receiver can know about the transaction
Untraceability of transactions. The zk-SNARK protocol hides any external data except the timestamp.
