In addition to being approved to custody and trade Zcash, the NYDFS has confirmed to Forbes that Gemini will also receive approvals for Bitcoin Cash, with a total market value of $25 billion and Litecoin, valued at $8.2 billion, though details about when these currencies might go live remain sparse. He wrote that "our approval makes Gemini the first licensed Zcash exchange in the world".

The regulated exchange that serves the present customers of the firm in 48 states in U.S., Washington D.C., Singapore, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, South Korea, Canada, and Puerto Rico will start trading Zcash on the 22nd of May at 9:30 am EDT.

Zcash incorporates the technology "zk-snark", short for zero-knowledge succinct non-interactive argument of knowledge, which lets people trade with each other in anonymity.

"Zcash is a cryptocurrency that has branded itself as "[setting] a new standard for privacy through the use of groundbreaking cryptography". Gemini also plans to support block trading across the same three trading pairs.

Yesterday, the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYSDFS) superintendent Maria T. Vullo has given cryptocurrency exchange Gemini the green light to include Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), and Zcash (ZEC) on its platform.

Thursday marks 1st day of Ramadan: Dar al Iftaa
Many pilgrims from around the world travel to the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah for Umrah during Ramadan. The holiday commemorate the revelation of the sacred scripture of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad.

The Winklevoss twins' Gemini digital currency exchange has become the first in NY to receive a license to trade the privacy-focused cryptocurrency zcash. At its launch, Gemini will facilitate deposits from both shielded and unshielded addresses. The move has made Gemini into the world's first officially licensed Zcash exchange.

Snubbing that trend, Zcash founding member and CEO Bryce "Zooko" Wilcox posted a photo of Zcash's price as it surged on the Gemini announcement. However, the full integrations of these other cryptocurrencies onto the exchange have not been announced as of yet. Every transaction on the bitcoin blockchain is visible and broadcasted to the network.

"Today demonstrates that through education and collaboration and with the right controls in place, regulators can get comfortable with privacy technology". "Bitcoin has many strengths, but privacy is not one of them".
