EXMO, cryptocurrency platform now supports Zcash.

Zcash

Open, permissionless cryptocurrency that can fully protect the privacy of transactions using zero-knowledge cryptography

On July 28, the EXMO crypto exchange expanded the list of financial instruments by integrating the Zcash (ZEC) crypto currency, with a total market capitalization of $ 302.7 million. The Crypto currency won the interest and trust of users due to the high degree of anonymity of transactions in the system and the simplicity of its mining.

The decision to add this crypto currency was based on the results of the previous survey among active users of the exchange, following which Zcash (ZEC) was the first to be on the list.

Note that due to integration of Zcash, platform users are now able to trade on the most popular currency pairs on the market: ZEC / BTC, ZEC / USD, ZEC / EUR, ZEC / RUB.

The blockchain project Dfinity reported in its blog postponing the launch of its main product.

Previously, Dfinity chief scientist Dominic Williams said that his company intends to create an “Internet computer that will become cloud 3.0”, compete with Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure, and also change the face of the blockchain industry.

According to him, the project team is developing a technology that has 150 higher performance than Ethereum blockchain and 900 times - Bitcoin. In essence, the project creates a “giant Internet computer”, whose work will be supported not by one company, but by all participants of the Dfinity protocol.

Initially, the release of a minimum viable product (MVP) was planned for the first quarter of 2019. However, according to company representatives, working on a trimmed version may slow down progress in creating a complete product.

The project is currently assessing the time frame for the completion of the MVP. Also, noted in Dfinity, before the end of the first quarter a new set of development tools (SDK) will be released, which will shed light on the future plans of the company.

In August, the Dfinity Foundation attracted $ 102 million of investments in the framework of a closed tokensale. Prior to this, at the beginning of the year, the Dfinity Foundation raised $ 61 million from Andreessen Horowitz and Polychain Capital.
