A message about this has appeared on the official Twitter of both these cryptocurrency exchange platforms. Poloniex informs that Zcash will become available for trading today, October, 28, right after the start of mining of this anonymous crypto-currency. By the way, the start of mining has already caused quite a rush.
The platform representatives promised to inform about the start of trading of $ZEC tokens – inner Zcash currency.
Tweet from Kraken is similar in content.
As we’ve already written before, Zcash will differ from all other crypto-currencies by its full anonymity. All transactions will be shown in the public blockchain, however, this fact will not hurt anonymity, since the parties that take part in the transaction will remain anonymous, as well as the sum of the transaction. Such full anonymity will be reached by means of the zero-knowledge proof algorithm.
Expectations from the new crypto-currency are extremely high, since no one wants to miss the start of new Bitcoin or Ethereum (many crypto-currency experts give in advance such a high credit of trust to the young crypto-currency). The fact that Zcash will not carry out any crowdsales, which are so popular lately, adds oil to the flame. Zcash has announced mining only, that is why mining pools have already activated.
We will watch the situation and inform you about any changes concerning the start of Zcash mining.
