The Zcash Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that focuses on financial privacy. Our mission is to build internet payment and privacy infrastructure for the public good.

We serve the users of the Zcash protocol and blockchain. The Foundation also supports other applications of zero-knowledge cryptography, as well as other approaches to private cryptocurrency.
