Any other ideas? When merchant acceptance is lacking, Zcash is not very useful except as a store of value; and that store of value isn’t useful, when it can’t be exchanged for BTC or other widely-accepted currency. Anonymous digital cash which must be run through a “KYC” financial institution for spending is also not useful.
Before someone says “Bisq,” that has insufficient liquidity to use at point of spending; and there are some other issues I would prefer to discuss in a Bisq forum, not here.
And before anybody asks: My money was obtained by legal means. But the whole point of financial privacy is that my identity, my activities, and the “source of funds” are all “none of your business.” Same reason as why I encrypt mundane e-mail, buy groceries with cash, and use Tor for absolutely everything. It’s the principle of the matter.
Thanks in advance for any tips.
