I know how to send a shielded transaction from my ZCash4Win wallet, but what, actually, happens when I mash the send button?
I understand zero-knowledge proofs and all that, mind you, but do Z transactions go onto the zcash blockchain? Do they get stored at all? I’m really struggling to explain this aspect of it, and the ability for ZCash to send truly private transactions is a defining quality, something I’d like to explain to others more clearly.
Thanks for any help!
