The Zerocoin protocol is a privacy protocol that improves the anonymity of Bitcoin transactions by having built-in coin-mixing capabilities. Professor Matthew D. Green and his graduate students from Johns Hopkins University proposed the protocol in 2013. Zerocoin isn’t compatible with Bitcoin yet. Coin mixing obscures cryptocurrency transactions by splitting them into multiple transactions using multiple types of cryptocurrencies.
The Bitcoin community didn’t agree with this feature being added to Bitcoin. For this reason, Zerocoin launched its own cryptocurrency Zcoin (XZC). Zcoin uses the Dandelion protocol that hides the IP address of a sender without the use of a VPN.

All trading involves risk. More than 80% of investors lose in spread bet and CFD trading. As these complex instruments allow for the use of leverage, there is a high risk of losing more money than you have deposited. Before attempting to participate in spread bets and CFDs, consider how well you understand them and if you can afford to lose your money.
