Mining Zcash Using a Windows VPS Just Got Easier!

Few days after Zcash was launched, the price of 1 ZEC (Zcash) was more than $1000.

Zcash’s developers say they have used advanced cryptography to create a virtual currency that can be sent around the world essentially without a trace, unlike Bitcoin.

Given the massive highs observed in the markets, it may be an understatement to say that Zcash prices have calmed. The currency pair’s fluctuations have become far less severe since its launch, with ZEC/BTC fluctuating between 0.81 BTC and 2.82 BTC on 1st November.

Petar Zivkovkski, director of operations for leveraged bitcoin trading platform Whaleclub:

“Early miners and holders are keen to distribute (sell) their Zcash in exchange for bitcoin to capitalize on the high prices,” he said.

Zcash developer, Mr. Green, said the following things regarding the new virtual curency:

“You are going around on the Bitcoin blockchain leaving a trail of everything you do, which will last forever,” he said. “The idea of Zcash is you don’t have to go to special lengths to achieve privacy — privacy is baked into the system.”

Why to use a Windows VPS or Linux VPS for mining Zcash

To start mining even for 1 single ZEC, it needs some special features that you can’t find on a day-to-day computer. There are some technical specifications such as high CPU, high RAM and a powerful graphics card.

For mining, it takes days, so you won’t be able to use a personal PC to get the best results. If you really want fast results, you must use a PC or a server to run 24/7.
