Why zcash and monero?

where can I read more about zk-snarks?

Admin Can Zcash and Monero coexist?

Both are great tech, I prefer zk-Snarks over RingCT. I don't know why there is so much tribalism in crypto community when all privacy communities are ultimately wanting to achieve same goal.

arent zk-snarks easier to use a bit?

If you are a dev yes, and their use goes beyond just privacy. With recursive snarks you can make it achieve high scalability. Eth, Jp Morgan, Coda Protocol and resistanceio dex are all using it in one form or another.

Is there anyway to check the trusted setup wasn't compromised and coins were printed?

Exchange arbitrage – buying bitcoin on exchange A and selling on exchange B to take advantage of small price inefficiencies – is a growing business as many traditional market players enter the space.

Apparently not.That’s one of the biggest flaws of zcash in my opinion, the lack of an auditable supply.

Wonder if possible future implementation of starks would allow that?I know it does remove the need of a trusted setup.

If the coins are forever private we'd either have to wait for that privacy to be broken or just restart with a new coin

Which to break it would be indeed an extraordinary challenge.However, one can’t stop thinking “what if there is indeed forgery of coins and they try to dump them on an exchange”?Just scenarios that would be nice not to have.

Or maybe just a random small exploit discovered in the future

Hey guys , just wondering if there's any quicker way to sync the chain, it is possible by using just block headers?

My daemon has been syncing for like 8 hours and start slowing down near the 20%-23% mark, is there an electrum or bootstrap for Zcash?

I'd like a local wallet, as I don't particurally trust the other online portals.

Or these multi asset wallets.

You can get an alternative implementation to the desktop clients of e.g. Ledger and Trezor which mitigates the risks associated with having only a single implementation

Guys I'm new... Why did Coinbase and Gemini decide to list ZEC? Why is it preferred by these two big players?

Zcash have a nice legal structure or at least are trying alot harder than majority of other projects especially privacy coins.

Also it's the birth place of Zero Knowledge utilised within blockchain, quite revolutionary !

Sorry my messages are being deleted

What do you mean by legal structure?

Like collaborating with regulators for a symbiotic relationship.

I sent you something on it, check it out !

Can't post it here, unfortunately being moderated 😄

Anyone willing to sell cryptos?

Just go to exchange wtf wrong with u

Interesting list. Just in case you pushing some teams to get listed as soon as possible. Only 4 tokens are above ICO price after listing in Q4 2018.

icos usually not reliable

admin why do I want to purchase ZEC over Mimble Wimble technology or beam or Grin ? Why does ZEC have a brighter future?

but is there a winner take all the market share or 90%

Christopher House
but is there a winner take all the market share or 90%

Maybe... Maybe not.Currently all privacy systems have pros and cons.Unless a “perfect” system comes up I don’t see that happening

Are developers or the team going to make ZCash more scalable? And can ZEC be a sidechain of BTC or do atomic swaps in the future?
