Zcoin is a privacy focused cryptocurrency that utilizes zero knowledge proofs which allows users to destroy coins and then redeem them later for brand new ones with no transaction history. It was the first project to implement the Zerocoin protocol and is now the first to code and implement the Sigma protocol which unlike other leading ZKP implementations has no trusted setup, standard cryptographic assumptions and competitive performance. Zcoin is now developing Lelantus, a new privacy protocol that further expands the capabilities of Sigma. Zcoin also utilises Dandelion++ to obscure the originating IP of transactions without relying on any external services such as TOR/i2P. Zcoin developed and utilizes Merkle Tree Proofs (MTP) as its Proof-of-Work algorithm which aims to be memory hard with fast verification. Zcoin also held the world's first blockchain powered large scale political election where the Thai Democrat Party carried out its primary elections on Zcoin's blockchain with over 127,000 votes cast nationwide.
