ZCash or ZEC is a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency that uses zero-knowledge proofs or zk-snarks to safely encrypt all the information between users. Still the transactions are verifiable by Zcash mining protocol called Equihash that ensures no double-spending takes place.
Zcash is the 21th top rated cryptocurrency with a $990 million market capitalization and high trading volume of $50 millions a day with the peaks up to $250-300 millions.
Equihash is a hashing algorithm that is an asymmetric memory-hard PoW algorithm based on the generalized birthday problem. It relies on high requirements to RAM memory to keep Zcash mining ASIC-resistant.
