Zcash is the first open, permissionless financial system employing zero-knowledge security.
Our mission is to create an open financial technology platform that everyone in the world can use.
We believe that personal privacy is necessary for core human values like dignity, intimacy, and ethics. Companies need privacy in order to conduct their business; and we believe that privacy strengthens social ties and social institutions, protects societies against their enemies, and helps societies to be more peaceful and more prosperous. Finally, in an open and programmable financial system, privacy is the only way to ensure fungibility.
