Zcash node and explorer

Connect to ZEC node to enjoy the best developer blockchain!

ZCash is an open source cryptocurrency developed by the Zerocoin Electric Bain Company that provides privacy and selective transparency of transactions. Cash payments are published on the blockchain, but the sender, recipient, and transaction amount remain private. The minimum transmitted value-10-8 SEC-was called 'zatoshi', similar to 'Satoshi' – just like Bitcoin. Also, like Bitcoin, ZCash has a fixed maximum total stock of 21 million units. The average block formation time is 150 seconds (2.5 minutes).

The level of anonymity of Zcash is noted by many well-known companies and individuals.

Here is a list of the main advantages of ZEC:

  • Easy Mining

    ZEC can be mined free of cost with an open GPU hardware which is more affordable and also takes less energy as compared to other POW mining rigs.

  • Fewer Reports

    There hasn’t been a single bug report made against Zcash protocols and no network error problems.

  • zk-SNARKS Technology

    This zero-knowledge technology has a lot more applications than payments and transactions. This type of security layer can be used to verify relations between different digital processes without disclosing much information.
