ZCash (ZEC) spikes over 10% in a day as ZIP 1014 passes
As the market retraces from the obscure buying level, ZCash (ZEC), a privacy based crypto token, has seen its price spike over 10% in a day as the community passed the ZCash Improvement Protocol (ZIP 1014). On Feb. 17, the crypto’s community passed the new proposal, which aims to allocate 80 percent of Zcash (ZEC) issuance to miners.
Hitting an intraday low of $55.04 USD on Monday, the price of ZEC spiked to $66.15 USD following the announcement, representing 20% increase through the course of the day. The price has since retraced to $65.20 USD.

In the new protocol rules, miners will receive 80% of the block rewards, with 5 percent of the issued tokens going to the ZCash Foundation for development support, 7% of the block rewards sent to the Electric Coin Company (ECC) – a company that is part of the core development of ZCash – and the rest being set aside for grants and bounties for third party developers working on the blockchain.
