info_outline What is Zcoin



Zcoin Short Description

Zcoin is a privacy focused cryptocurrency that utilizes zero knowledge proofs which allows users to destroy coins and then redeem them later for brand new ones with no transaction history. It was the first project to implement the Zerocoin protocol and is now the first to code and implement the Sigma protocol which unlike other leading ZKP implementations has no trusted setup, standard cryptographic assumptions and competitive performance.

Zcoin is now developing Lelantus, a new privacy protocol that further expands the capabilities of Sigma. Zcoin also utilises Dandelion++ to obscure the originating IP of transactions without relying on any external services such as TOR/i2P.

Zcoin developed and utilizes Merkle Tree Proofs (MTP) as its Proof-of-Work algorithm which aims to be memory hard with fast verification. Zcoin also held the world's first blockchain powered large scale political election where the Thai Democrat Party carried out its primary elections on Zcoin's blockchain with over 127,000 votes cast nationwide..

    Dash is Digital Cash, offering near-instant payments, thanks to InstantSend and masternodes function. Also including PrivateSend function, which enables sending coins in the private manner.

  • 2.) SmartCash

    SmartCash is a fungible, decentralized digital currency with a focus on merchant adoption & community focused governance.

  • 3.) Horizen

    Launched in 2017, Horizen’s leading-edge platform enables real-life uses outside of their cryptocurrency - ZEN. Horizen is a massively scalable general-purpose blockchain system that enables an unbounded and fully decentralized sidechain ecosystem. Horizen is creating an ecosystem with a censorship-resistant peer-to-peer network owned by its users, permissionless in participation, and constructed with incentives for endogenous growth. Horizen’s goal is to create a sidechain system that enables real-world applications to be mapped on a fully distributed, secure, privacy-preserving blockchain architecture, and sharing the use of ZEN as a well established and tradable token with real value. Such a system will allow developers the creation of decentralized applications implemented as sidechains to the Horizen main blockchain with their own logic and data.

He earned a masters degree in Information Security from Johns Hopkins University where he wrote a paper on a proposed practical implementation of the Zerocoin protocol. He has been instrumental in laying the foundations of Zcoin's technology from implementing the world's first implementation of Zerocoin and also pushing for the research and development into the MTP mining algorithm. Poramin has been focused on pushing for the adoption of Zcoin into the real world especially in his involvement in facilitating the Thai Democrat Party to conduct its primary elections to elect its party leader on Zcoin's blockchain and also integrating Zcoin into the Thai economy via his regulated exchange Satang Pro. Lately, his work has been focused on Exodus, Zcoin's tokenization layer that allows anyone to build their own private tokens on Zcoin's blockchain.
