What is ZenCash?

ZenCash is perhaps best known for its emphasis on privacy, but its strengths also lie in governance, economic incentives and engineering ingenuity. The first to offer end-to-end encryption and with close to 13,000 nodes, it is the world’s most decentralized and anonymous blockchain for the transmission of money, media and messaging. A fork of zClassic, ZenCash builds on the system to address security issues while providing exponentially increased scalability. Users get to decide whether their transactions should be conducted in private or on the public ledger.

Think of ZenCash as the paranoid friend in an action thriller — sometimes it pays to have the paranoid guy watching out for you. With governments known to be collecting and reading the communications of citizens, ZenChat offers a messaging platform that protects the content of the messages for secure commerce and communication. ZenPub is a publishing platform for publishing and accessing anonymous documents. These two features are huge in countries that actively censor their citizens. ZenHide uses domain fronting to hide connection endpoints to get around crypto-commerce blocking, essential for providing economic access to users in countries hostile to cryptocurrency.
