Zcash (ZEC) Mining Pool

ZCash or ZEC is a privacy-oriented cryptocurrency that uses zero-knowledge proofs or zk-snarks to safely encrypt all the information between users. Still the transactions are verifiable by Zcash mining protocol called Equihash that ensures no double-spending takes place.
Zcash is the 21th top rated cryptocurrency with a $990 million market capitalization and high trading volume of $50 millions a day with the peaks up to $250-300 millions.
Equihash is a hashing algorithm that is an asymmetric memory-hard PoW algorithm based on the generalized birthday problem. It relies on high requirements to RAM memory to keep Zcash mining ASIC-resistant.

It is better to choose NVIDIA video cards over AMD ones for Zcash mining as they have shown better hashrate results. Here’s the comparison of hashrate between the top cards of both manufacturers:

AMD Radeon R9 FURY: 420–450 H/s

NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti: 700–760 H/s
