BITZEC 1.1.4

Zero knowledge proofs ? Bitzec is a fork of [Zcash] and ( is an implementation of the "Zerocash" protocol. Based on Bitcoin. What is Bitcoin ?

Bitzec BZC is a fork of Zcash 2.0 with its own genesis block , it is an implementation of the "Zerocash" protocol. Based on Bitcoin's code, it intends to offer a far higher standard of privacy through a sophisticated zero-knowledge proving scheme that preserves confidentiality of transaction metadata. Technical details are available in our Protocol Specification.

This software is the Bitzec client. It downloads and stores the entire history of Bitzec transactions; depending on the speed of your computer and network connection, the synchronization process could take one hour or more once the blockchain has reached a significant size.

Install dependencies:

sudo apt-get install \
build-essential pkg-config libc6-dev m4 g++-multilib \
autoconf libtool ncurses-dev unzip git python python-zmq \
zlib1g-dev wget curl bsdmainutils automake

Clone Bitzec Repository :

git clone

Build it :
cd bitzec/
./zcutil/ -j$(nproc)
fetch key:
mkdir -p ~/.bitzec
echo 'gen=1' >> ~/.bitzec/bitzec.conf
echo "genproclimit=1" >> ~/.bitzec/bitzec.conf
echo 'equihashsolver=tromp' >> ~/.bitzec/bitzec.conf

Run It
./src/bitzec-cli getblockchaininfo

./bitzec-cli help      <--- for full command list 
open debug.log under ctrl+h hidden folder .bitzec/debug.log

windows crosscompile on Debian / Ubuntu: 
 sudo apt install mingw-w64
 sudo update-alternatives --config x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc
     (configure 1 to use POSIX variant)
 sudo update-alternatives --config x86_64-w64-mingw32-g++
     (configure 1 to use POSIX variant)
 HOST=x86_64-w64-mingw32 ./zcutil/
 you will get src/bitzec-cli.exe src/bitzecd.exe src/zcash-gtest.exe src/bitzec-tx.exe
in case you compiled for ubuntu before on same folder bitzec   ( make clean && make -C src/univalue clean )

Installation video :



Add unit tests for Bitzec under Bitzec ./src/gtest.

To list all tests, run ./src/zcash-gtest --gtest_list_tests.

To run a subset of tests, use a regular expression with the flag --gtest_filter. Example:

 ./src/zcash-gtest --gtest_filter=DeprecationTest.* 

For debugging: --gtest_break_on_failure.

To run a subset of BOOST tests: ` src/test/test_bitcoin -t TESTGROUP/TESTNAME

📒 Deprecation Policy

This release is considered deprecated some weeks after the release day. There is an automatic deprecation shutdown feature which will halt the node some time after this 16 week time period. The automatic feature is based on block height.

Getting Started
