logoZcoin (XZC)

A Privacy Protocol Built On Zero-Knowledge Proof Schemes.
  • Zcoin (XZC) is one of the earliest privacy coins, created by Poramin Insom and his team. It launched in September 2016 (under the name Moneta).
  • At the beginning, Zcoin was the first cryptocurrency implementing the Zerocoin protocol designed by Matthew Green in 2013.
  • Zcoin is based on Bitcoin's source-code, with a CPU-friendly ASIC-resistant algorithm (Merkle Tree Function since 2018). Its total maximum supply is 21.4 million and block rewards are halved every four years.
  • Since July 2019, the use of the Zerocoin protocol has been deprecated and fully replaced by Sigma. Besides efficiency upgrades, the requirement for a trusted set-up was also removed with Sigma.
