Hello folks, please explain the ZCash edge... If LTC adds anonymity as rumoured later this year, how is ZCash better? Where/how do they maintain a disguishable use case in that case?

"Adding anonymity" is not that simpleWhat will LTC actually add? Just stealth addresses? Just confidential transactions?Even with both, its privacy set would be far weaker than that of Monero and shielded ZCash transactions

Yes definitely... The devil is in the details... I see ZCash perhaps provided a use case to organizations desiring internal accounting stealth... The retail case is less clear.

This may be why Vitalik is exploring adding zk_snarks to Ethereum for it's possible appeal to enterprises.

If you use non-private transactions, you expose all kinds of information to thieves, foreign powers, etc. At some point governments will mandate financial privacy for the protections of its people as well as national security.

New to ZEC. Disappointed i hadn't found this sooner

Zcash 'Company' Changes Name to 'Zerocoin Electric??

Could France Ban Anonymous Cryptocurrency?

Ban how?

French Finance Committee: Ban on Anonymous Cryptocurrencies Appropriate

Woerth makes it unclear how far such a ban on anonymity-focused cryptos would extend. He makes no differentiation between those that are private by default, such as Monero, and those that feature optional privacy. As highlighted by the Winklevoss twins listing Zcash at Gemini last year, such coins are largely thought to be more palatable for financial regulators.

My question is what kind of ban? Can they ban on exchanges? Sure. Can they stoo u from using it from your own wallet? No.

Who remembers the first day ZEC hit exchanges, it was bittrex or polo not too sure, Zec was selling for like 3-5 BTC a piece, watching this live was so fun

👍👍👍😜

What the???

What’s the concern? The company changed its name. Zcash is still Zcash.

Small ZCash bag holder here, was curious if anyone noticed that for such a prominent coin, the ZCash community doesn’t seem very active on Telegram/Reddit/etc? I would like to learn more about the project, so I was curious if anyone had an suggestions on best places to start. I’ve heard Zooko on various podcasts & I follow him on Twitter, but I was hoping to find more current sources of info. Thanks in advance.

Is a discussion forum too.

not many people know how to make a shielded transaction

even for old Zcash olders

have you ever personnally done a shielded transaction ?

we need more content on this

last time a checked a video on youtube about this, dude was using the terminal

and entering command lines

too complicated

for the average user

Its easier now iirc

40mb ram instead of gbs

need to let people know about it

I've heard only good things about ZEC tbh. It's still quite new to me

A guy I trust 100% and who researches crypto daily,and is uber switched on, said it is THE coin. So i grabbed some and put it on my ledger

well it's a good time to re enter now

Seems exceptionally cheap

for a longer time frame trade

Wallets are coming. zec-qt has been getting decent reviews.

Zec needs an iOS wallet too
