The Zcash investment vehicle started way back in October of 2016 and has since then been making remarkable waves with their payment infrastructure. Second to Monero, they are the highest privacy centered decentralized platform.
The core concept of the platform is to build a privacy-centric ecosystem for cryptocurrency payments. This new niche has attracted a lot of individuals who prefer the privacy and selective transparency features being offered by their platform when compared to the anonymity services being offered by bitcoin network which clearly isn't enough.
Privacy, of the other two security features - speed and immutability, is the third-wheel holding any decentralized model intact, and makes any cryptocurrency truly desirable for mainstream internet payment systems, especially for those who hold secrecy in high regard.
ZEC is the cryptocurrency for the platform. The one outstanding feature of this platform is its cross-chain option, which enables one to cross over from one blockchain protocol to another.
Buy ZEC using your local currency after you must have exchanged it to any of the trade bases, or if you have USD even easier.
There's a wholesome demand for Zcash in cryptocurrency markets. There are over 80 markets where the coin is being traded currently with more than 13 trade base pairs, including BTC, ETH, USDT, WAVES, USD, GBP, EUR, RUB among others. I would suggest that you visit any of the top cryptocurrency exchanges, as it is listed there as the ZEC ticker.
Once you’ve bought the coin, you can choose to store the coin either on a desktop wallet - which can be downloaded from the Zcash official website or on any mobile compatible wallet. Choosing the PC wallet requires you to give it some time to sync with the server.
