Since the inception of Bitcoin, there have been a multitude of carbon copy cryptocurrencies, and numerous others that focus on improving the privacy features offered by blockchain technology. Of these, many have proven to be scarcely more private than the original, but a few, offer a feature set worthy of acknowledgement. Enter Zcash.
In a world where privacy is becoming an increasingly rare commodity, due to the progressive digitization of our lives, one cryptocurrency aims to give us back something that we risk losing; the freedom to spend our own money in private. The need for privacy dates back as far as human existence, we created clothes to cover our nude bodies, houses with separate bedrooms to shield us from one another, and anonymous outlets through which we can convey our true feelings and opinions.
