Zcash Payments

What is Zcash?

Zcash is a cryptocurrency based on privacy and anonymity. Similar to the original idea behind Bitcoin, it can be used as a digital replacement for cash, and its source code is available to everyone. Unlike the public ledger on the Bitcoin blockchain, for example, Zcash uses zero-knowledge proofs (zk-SNARKs). With them, transactions can be validated without knowing anything about the sender or the recipient.

Zcash was founded in October 2016, by an American computer scientist named Zooko Wilcox-O'Hearn. He worked in computer security for a long time, before coming up with Zcash. Everyone who wants to keep their transactions private should look into Zcash!

The only thing standing between you and adding that Pay with Zcash widget on your website is signing up for a NOWPayments account. After generating your API key, you can just copy a chunk of HTML code to start accepting Zcash payments!
