Today we are excited to announce the rollout of our new domain and a fresh company brand. We unveil these in keeping with the promise we made when the company name change was announced. Our goal is to provide additional clarity about the difference between the Electric Coin Company and Zcash, the cryptocurrency.
(And since we’re on the topic, it’s worth noting again: The company name has changed, but the currency has not. Zcash is still Zcash. The Electric Coin Company developed Zcash and continues to help drive its adoption.)
Our new site, ElectricCoin.Co, includes company and team information and the company-maintained blog. Likewise, company email addresses have changed to reflect the new domain, and social media channels echo it as well.
Z.cash will continue to host information about the Zcash ecosystem that is not specific to the company — such as protocol announcements, regulatory resources, security information, educational guides and more. This site will host announcements posted by both the company and the Zcash Foundation — a 501(c)3 non-profit serving Zcash users with governance and development efforts independent of the company.
We invite you to explore each of the sites and contact us with any questions. We appreciate your continued support of both Zcash and the Electric Coin Company. Then and now, we are the same team, with the same mission: to empower everyone with economic freedom and opportunity.
