Empower people with economic freedom

Electric Coin Co. builds and supports technology to provide people with access to a fair and open currency — regardless of location or demographic.

Zcash

ECC launched Zcash — a privacy-protecting, digital currency built on vanguard science — in 2016, and we continue to support the technology, along with others.

Our vision for Zcash is that it will provide equal access to economic systems and give everyone the ability to participate in economic activity.
