Launched in October 2016, the Zcash network aims to offer more privacy than bitcoin and provides users with the option to use private transactions, keeping transaction information private. Users must choose between two types of transactions when utilizing Zcash: Transparent transactions that make data publicly visible on the blockchain and private transactions that don’t reveal data. The total possible supply of zcash is 21 million coins. Eventually, 10% of total zcash supply will be allocated to the founders’ reward. CoinDesk also provides a suite of institutional-grade price indexes. Find out more about them here.
