Zcash (ZEC) is a digital currency introduced in 2016 by Zooko Wilcox-O’Hearn. The science-based decentralized platform is built to make every transaction private, secure and feeless. It uses a zero-knowledge proof called zk-snarks to shield every transfer. Zcash can also be utilized for open transactions by exchanges. The currency aims to redefine the entire money transfer process by introducing private and fully secured modes enabling users to hide their identity and information while making any transaction on the platform. The company is now getting rebranded to be called as the Electric Coin Company to emphasize on its vision of changing the global financial landscape.
The Zcash ROI is now -98.60%. The circulating supply of the coin is 6,448,819 ZEC which is equivalent to the total supply.

The blockchain based Zcash has been inking strategic partnerships & making important announcements since its inception. Recently, the team is seen promoting their participation in the Joint Conference Call with thought leaders and Global Coin Research to discuss the focus on Asia in 2019. The firm had partnered with JPMorgan to integrate ZSL (zero knowledge security layer) and make transactions fully anonymous. Last year, Zcash had collaborated with Starkware. It has also partnered with Trustwallet and gained good traction from the investors and supporters for this move. Hence, considering all these key aspects, the coin can be expected to grow between 100 USD – 200 USD by the end of 2019. From a 2-year perspective, the price can rise as high as 300 USD and in the next 5 years, it can reach over 700 USD. Although the currency has captured the spotlight in few instances through new partnerships but has kept a slow pace. 2019 may change this trend for Zcash bringing delight to the supporters and traders.
