ZCASH Mining Pool
Finding a good zcash mining pool is hard, but you did it!
Zcash uses the Equihash algorithm, which is (usually, not always) most efficiently mined with NVidia GPUs. To get fairly accurate estimates of what your mining rig can generate mining ZCash, we recommend entering your number of GPUs, power cost, etc on WhatToMine and calculating your potential earnings.
Zcash is a decentralized cryptocurrency that sets itself apart from other currencies by offering additional privacy to its users. Their "shielded transactions" hide the value of a transaction, as well as the recipient and sender, making it less transparent than other traditional cryptocurrencies.
Like others, Zcash is open-source, but they claim to have "better blockchain technology" by being fungible (we had to look that one up, too), enabling new applications, and upholding confidentiality.
Some members of their team include the authors of the Zerocash protocol, some of the Zerocoin protocol team, and researchers of zk-SNARKs.
Zcash has been featured in The Economist, The New York Times, TechCrunch, Bloomberg, Forbes, and more.
