How to convert from zerocoins back to basecoins?


#1

Hi, according http://zerocash-project.org/q_and_a

Users can also convert zerocoins back into basecoins, though in principle this is not necessary: all transactions can be made in terms of zerocoins, if the parties involved support these.

So, just for personal interest - when I had protected my coins (transform these to 'zerocoins'), how can I transform these coins back to 'basecoins' (add to my wallet, make visible in 'listunspent', send to regular bitcoin address etc.)?

Thanks!

Please don't look at http://zerocash-project.org/q_and_a or any part of http://zerocash-project.org except the part that says "The Zerocash protocol is being developed into a full-fledged digital currency, Zcash: https://Z.cash.". :slightly_smiling:

A lot of the terminology and design have been revamped considerably since the content on zerocash-project.org was written, and it will just confuse you if you try to figure out how the content on that site relates to the content of our current docs.
