Privacy and anonymity are important features of Zcash (ZEC), a decentralized cryptocurrency. Nodes on the network can verify transactions without revealing any sensitive information about them using the zk-SNARK zero-knowledge proof technology.
As opposed to what many people believe, Bitcoin (BTC) and the majority of cryptocurrencies are not anonymous, but rather pseudonymous. They do not explicitly reveal users' identities, but each user has an address that can be traced back to them through data science and blockchain forensics. Let us look at the technical analysis of ZEC.
