At Electric Coin Co., our mission is to empower people with economic freedom. To that end, we build and support Zcash to provide everyone with access to a fair and open currency — one that gives people the access and option to participate in economic activity, without censorship or surveillance, evolving as the world evolves.

VC firm Placeholder releases Zcash thesis Many folks in crypto today think about privacy backwards; instead of making sure their assets are private, they make the mistake of solely fixating on transactions being private. This is why we see people sending assets through mixers or coin-tumblers, only to return to transparent and trackable addresses, defeating the point of the mixer. Zooko Wilcox, a core contributing member of the Zcash community, voiced the confusion as follows: “You have to *store* your crypto in a private cryptosystem if you want privacy. Then it is safe to *move* it through a transparent system! Unfortunately, almost everyone has this backwards.” Read more: www.placeholder.vc/blog/2020/9/15/zcash-thesis
