with all due respect this whole ZCash "storyline" reminds me of the Paycoin scam that stole millions of $ from thousands of investors. Paycoin team had patented technology, massive support, hype due to they owned btc.com and then the coin just died. Trus me I was there. I have seen this play out.
This is not saying that I dont believe in the technology but just warning you guys that this coin will be trading at $1 before you know it and then all your savings are gonna be gone. Please dont get burnt. The technology is already out there so anyone can copy it, also Ethereum is working on implementing it. Also the black market has adopted Monero already and still that volume should not be increasing its price that much since those people will not be holding ZCash but will want to cash out into bitcoin or something else, so it will have the same problem that bitcoin had when it was widely adopted -- aka a major downward pressure from businesses selling the coin for more stable currencies. Not to mention that investing in deepweb markets is always shaky at best with ogovernment crackdowns happening all the time. This coin will have no use.
