101 Series

Zcash

It’s time for another 101 breakdown and this week we are going to look at Zcash, a coin whose forks we somehow managed to cover before the coin itself! Brent sits down with Mike to finally explore this privacy focused project which frankly CryptoBasic had avoided due to what we considered outrageous founder rewards…. has our opinion been changed? We also explore why privacy matters to law abiding citizens in this 101 series on Zcach. Will this controversial coin yield a controversial episode? Well… it is Brent presenting after-all =)
