Zerocoin Protocol is a set of rules that allow private, untraceable transactions on Zcoin network. Tadhg explains:
“Zerocoin Protocol is an application layer privacy solution for Ethereum. An interesting thing about it is that it preserves fungibility, which is in accordance with the fact that any coin is as valuable as any other coin.”
