Empower economic freedom

Zcash is at the center of our mission to provide everyone with access to a fair and open currency.

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.
