What is Zelcash?

What is Zelcash? 'Zelcash' is the coin and system of transacting value inside of the Zeldev Platform, running on our Equihash blockchain. Zelcash is minable making distribution fair. A Proof of Stake element will be added in the form of Zelnodes to bring around the capabilities and network stability needed for the ZelDev Decentralized Development Platform to be released. Zelcash is and will always be a staple in all projects undertaken by the Zel Foundation.

Zelcash is the enabler in the Zel Foundations project to bring a truly decentralized, open source and free development platform into reality, Zeldev. Zelcash will not only allow value to be transacted but will also be an incentive for users to host Zelnodes (masternodes) that secure the network and allow for the main Ethereum like blockchain to operate completely on POS. This Ethereum like blockchain is the backbone to the ZelDev Platform. This will allow for the free creation of decentralized applications (DAPPS) and for the creation of Smart contracts that are free and open to all. The Zelnodes network will also allow the running of other blockchains (side chains (but not actually side chains)) such as the Zel ID chain.
