How to use Zcash?

Zcash is super easy to use, but some people say there is a very short learning curve.

 

Example 1: Zcash for P2P Communication

In this example I am going to use Coinbase and Nighthawk Wallet to demonstrate how to acquire ZEC and then send a very valuable message to your friend or family member.

Step 1: Buy ZEC on Coinbase, or buy ZEC via MoonPay from within the Nighhawk Wallet

Step 2: Send ZEC to T-Address (Skip step 2 if purchased with MoonPay)

Step 3: Shields UP! After 10 confirmations tap "Shield Transparent Funds"
