As the Summer trucks along rather nicely, it seems another cryptocurrency hard fork is on the horizon. The ZCash project will be forked into a different chain known as YCash. Contrary to previous forks of this kind, there is a degree of amicability between both teams, rather than a genuine dispute. There is some work to be done looking to claim their YCash tokens, though.
On the surface, there have been a fair few projects which are derived from ZCash and still try to stick around in 2019. The world of privacy coins has gotten a lot of attention in recent months, albeit it remains to be seen how successful these ventures prove to be in the next few years. For the YCash team, forking is a matter of voicing their disagreement with the future of ZCash while still maintaining the core functionality and features provided by the “parent” project.
