Any coin that has optional privacy is total crap as privacy coin. It might work for something else, I don't know, their use is not clear.
what do you mean? privacy coins are needed for anonymous transactions. and I see more and more demand for privacy coins like monero and other.
not piling on, yes Zcash in z mode is very strong as long as there's enough z transactions going on. AFAIK it's still theoretically possible to stick out like a sore thumb. Dash had a great marketing run in the Bull market after they dropped the darkcoin name but it's really just a BTC mixer.
i made decent gains on Dash, Zcash, Particle and Nav but it recently became obvious XMR was/is dominating this category like the 1972 NFL Dolphins. I keep reading more in our crooked mainstream news about how 'bad' Monero is. Not much about the others.
And everytime it gets dragged through the news I buy a little more.
