Privacy enhanced Bitcoin fork

Zcash is a digital currency based on decentralization and cryptography principles. What makes it different from Bitcoin and other forks is that it provides the users with two types of addresses – transparent ones that act like a regular Bitcoin addresses and shielded addresses. The latter ones do not send or store information such as sender’s and receiver’s identification or the amount of Zcash that was transferred. Nevertheless, users can make transactions between both types of addresses.
