The company behind privacy coin Zcash announced Thursday that it is rebranding from Zcash Company to Electric Coin Company to better differentiate itself from Zcash’s non-profit foundation and the coin itself. The change also mirrors the company’s legal name, which has always been Zerocoin Electric Coin Company, LLC.



According to the announcement, the Electric Coin Company is focused on building and supporting Zcash. That includes research and engineering that may, or may not, ever make it into Zcash software. The team currently stands at around 30 individuals, focusing both on tech development and driving awareness and adoption.


The following changes are planned as a result , as detailed in the announcement:

  • The Electric Coin Company brand.
  • The Electric Coin Company information will be moved from to a new domain with its own website. This includes company and team information and the company-maintained blog.
  • Company email addresses will change to the new domain.
  • Social media properties including TwitterLinkedInFacebook will change to reflect the new name.


Zcash’s last major update came when Coinbase added the coin to Coinbase Earn, a new section of the website that allows users to earn cryptocurrency while learning by completing tasks like watching videos. But the crypto community was largely unimpressed by the low $3 reward.
