From the beginning, it was our belief that Agoric could be game-changing, both in itself as well as for ZEC users. Now that the Agoric mainnet has launched, we are ready to take the next step of bringing Agoric and Zcash capabilities together.
The possible use cases are as numerous as with any Defi system. One example might be the ability to purchase an NFT using shielded ZEC, allowing the purchaser privacy by shielding onlookers from prior transactions and ZEC holdings. Another example use case might be the ability to loan ZEC for yield where the originator of the loan remains private.
We are incredibly excited for the Agoric launch and look forward to working with them to bring shielded ZEC to Agoric smart contract developers and users.
