Today, billions of people in the world do not have access to a fair and open currency or supporting financial services. We build and support Zcash to drive greater freedom and opportunity for everyone.
We believe all people should have:
- access and the option to participate in economic activity
- without censorship or surveillance
- using technology that evolves as the world evolves
Empowering economic freedom requires many people across a diverse range of projects, industries and countries. ECC supports Zcash through research and development, engineering, partnerships and regulatory efforts; and we will continue to empower others to build, experiment, and meet the needs of people across geographies and demographics.
Our vision is to create a digital currency that meets the following standards:
Be fair, open and safe for today’s users:
Open: Zcash is equitable. It can be used freely by everyone and can be used in the same manner by everyone.
Available: All people can easily and inexpensively obtain and use the currency and technology.
Permissionless: Anyone can choose to use it. It requires no third party intermediary. No-one can be excluded from the use of the technology to exchange value with another person.
Privacy Protecting: Users can choose to keep personal, counterparty and transaction details private, or disclose them.
Predictable: The crypto economics are built-in. The monetary supply cannot be manipulated or altered by anyone. The supply can be audited.
Resilient: Both the currency and technology are resilient against attacks.
Evolve with the needs of growing and changing communities:
Adaptable: The technology is adaptable to meet the varied use cases of today, as well as the unforeseen use cases of tomorrow.
Extensible: People can build on top of the technology so that it can be used in other applications to meet the needs of specific communities and use cases.
Interoperable: It can be used and exchanged across different types of technologies including non crypto-currency-based projects.
Self Funding: The technology encourages its ongoing modernization by providing mechanisms to fund ongoing development and support.
Self Governing: The governance is inclusive and capture-resistant.
