NU5 and Halo Arc set for April release
In April, Electric Coin Co. will launch the next generation of Zcash with Network Upgrade 5 (NU5) and the Halo Arc for Zcash product suite. NU5 includes the first implementation of the Halo proving system, a new zero-knowledge proof that upgrades the underlying cryptography in Zcash and eliminates the trusted setup. With new product suite features, like unified addresses and auto-shielding, Zcash becomes shielded by default in supporting wallets.
All of this, and the roadmap for the next 3 years, supports our North Star: to deliver a world-class user experience for ZEC.
ONLINE PRIVACY WILL ENABLE A GOLDEN AGE OF FREEDOM AND SELF-EXPRESSION

Coindesk on Zcash: The privacy coin explained
In a world where our personal information, interests and activities are being increasingly tracked and documented, it’s little surprise cryptocurrencies that offer users anonymity continue to remain popular despite efforts from regulators and exchanges to restrict their accessibility.
“Zcash is one of the leading digital currency blockchains that looks to address this snowballing issue and seeks to return power and privacy to its users.”
