Also this month, Brave’s privacy web browser team announced the introduction of additional privacy-enhancing features to Brave Wallet in partnership with Zcash and the Filecoin Foundation.

Earlier, ZEC was delisted by global exchange OKX and Binance units in several EU countries due to local legal requirements. Later, Binance allowed a full delisting of the coin due to its non-compliance with the criteria, in connection with which the Zcash community, considering the removal from the platform inevitable, proposed to abandon the transparent pool, which allows for public transactions.

At the time of writing, Zcash ranks 187th in the cryptocurrency ranking with a capitalization of $461,2 million and is trading at $31,25, having lost 9,9% overnight. At the same time, the growth since the beginning of the year amounted to 14,63%.
