Privacy and anonymity have always gone hand in hand when it comes to crypto. Bitcoin was conceived to protect the identity of the people who carry out transactions in the network.

Similarly, the amount of traded money is also recorded in the blockchain, associating with the bitcoin addresses of who sends and who receives the money.

For those people who think that privacy is a fundamental value and that they really want to keep anonymously all their transactions, Zcash was born to fulfill these characteristics. Zcash, as mentioned on  its website , offers complete confidentiality of payments while maintaining a decentralized network using a public blockchain. Unlike bitcoin, Zcash automatically hides the identities of both senders and receivers, as well as the amount of all transactions made in the blockchain. Only those with the correct key can see the contents of a transaction.
