Zcash is a decentralized and open-source cryptocurrency that offers privacy and selective transparency of transactions. Zcash payments are published on a public blockchain, but the sender, recipient, and amount of a transaction remain private.

[zcashd release 1.0.8-1 implemented a bug fix related to transaction priority handling may allow an attacker to crash Zcash nodes (Denial of Service) via a specially crafted transaction.]

Zcash (currency symbol ZEC) is a decentralized and free cryptocurrency that offers privacy and selective transparency of transactions, developed by the Zcash Electric Coin Company (ZECC). Zcash payments are published on a public blockchain, but the sender, recipient, and amount of a transaction remain private.

The zcash daemon, zcashd, presents the same kind of RPC interface as Bitcoin Core, and this interface (see Bitcoin RPC reference) provides a very similar Bitcoin API calls, which we call the Bitcoin API. Transactions which do not involve Z-addrs (and thus the zeroknowledge privacy layer) can be created with this API just as for Bitcoin. - https://z.cash/support/zig.html
