ZCash is a privacy driven cryptocurrency
It uses the Equihash as an algorithm, which is an asymmetric memory-hard Proof of Work algorithm based on the generalized birthday problem. It relies on high RAM requirements to bottleneck the generation of proofs and making ASIC development unfeasible. ZCash uses zero-knowledge Succinct Non-interactive Arguments of Knowledge (zk-SNARKs) to ensure that all information (sender, receiver, amount) is encrypted, without the possibility of double-spending
The only information that is revealed regarding transactions is the time in which they take place.
Zcash, a cryptocurrency much like Bitcoin, features groundbreaking technology that could reshape the world financial system. Subscribe to Fortune ...

The Komodo Platform focuses on providing complete end-to-end blockchain solutions for developers of any level and any industry. It is simple yet powerful, offering customized blockchain solutions that are easy to deploy, and configurable to meet your needs.

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.
Zcash was founded back in October 2016.
Its source code was released publicly on github on November 2014
under the Other license.
Organization wise, Zcashs Development is Semi-centralized and is being developed under the lead of Nathan Wilcox.
The consensus on which the Zcash network is run is called POW, while
the underlying algorithm is called Equihash.
In the current state of Zcash currently is Working product
Bitcoin and most cryptocurrencies expose your entire payment history to the public. Zcash is the first open, permissionless cryptocurrency that can fully protect the privacy of transactions using zero-knowledge cryptography.
