Swihart, previously the Senior Vice President of Growth at ECC, returns to the company with a vision to steer it towards strategic advancements, tactical decisions, and broader market integration.

A Vision for Progress and Innovation

This leadership change comes at a time when the cryptocurrency market is experiencing fluctuations, with Zcash’s native cryptocurrency, ZEC, reflecting broader market trends.
