Over the past 24 hours, the valuation of the cryptocurrency market has increased from $387 billion to $408 billion, by more than $21 billion. For this reason, Zcash has been linked to trading in oppressed nations, as well as privacy-focused investors and even criminal organizations. The first day of trading on Gemini for Zcash will be the 22 of May, meaning in theory, the currency still has 7 days of speculation-based climbing to partake in, before the true impact of this listing can be measured.

The platform, owned by the Winklevoss Twins, announced it will begin taking deposits in Zcash from May 19.

In addition to being approved to custody and trade Zcash, the NYDFS has confirmed to Forbes that Gemini will also receive approvals for Bitcoin Cash, with a total market value of $25 billion and Litecoin, valued at $8.2 billion, though details about when these currencies might go live remain sparse.

In fact, New York State Senator David Carlucci said in February that reformative measures could be introduced "very soon". In addition to this, the exchange adheres to fiduciary obligations equivalent to traditional financial institutions and follows Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) enacted customer protection guidelines. In addition to Zcash having a $32.4 million daily trading volume, the zk-snark technology has been integrated into a number of open-source projects, most notably Quorum, originally developed by JPMorgan Chase & Co.
