Zcoin (XZC) is a cryptographic currency focused on privacy, based on Zerocoin technology. Zerocoin is the protocol, while Zcoin is the piece. Zcoin may be considered a virtual sister currency of Zcash because their cryptographic properties complement each other, including the use of 'zero-knowledge' technology to ensure financial anonymity in transactions. However, they both have distinct differences, one being that Zcash is based on a different Zerocash protocol.
