Zcash (ZEC)

What is Zcash? 

Zcash (ZEC) is a cryptocurrency that offers two types of addresses: transparent addresses that are publicly visible on the Zcash blockchain and shielded addresses that are more private. Coinbase customers can receive Zcash from both transparent and shielded addresses and send Zcash to transparent addresses.

Sending to shielded addresses is not supported at this time.

How does Zcash work?

ZCash uses an advanced cryptographic technique known as "Zero-Knowledge Proof" to guarantee the validity of transactions without revealing additional information.
