“Zcash offers total payment confidentiality, while still maintaining a decentralized network using a public blockchain. Unlike Bitcoin, Zcash transactions automatically hide the sender, recipient, and value of all transactions on the blockchain.” source: z.cash

# Zero Knowledge Proofs

Zero knowledge proofs –more specifically “zero-knowledge arguments of knowledge”– are a scientific breakthrough in the field of cryptography: they allow you to prove knowledge of some facts about hidden information without revealing that information.

A great video explaining zero knowledge proofs:

# Maximum Confidentiality

Zcash offers the latest techniques in cryptography, namely zero-knowledge proofs, to guarantee the validity of transactions without revealing additional information about them. Zcash payments are published on a public blockchain, but the sender, recipient, and amount of a transaction remain private.
