The ZEC protocol is based on the Zerocoin protocol which was developed in 2013 and later turned into Zerocash with a difficulty adjustment algorithm adopted from the DigiShield v3. The ZEC cryptocurrency went live in 2016 and started trading in later October 2016. The total supply will grow to a final number of 21 million with a current inflation rate of 28%.

The reward will eventually account for 10% of the minted ZEC which was initially agreed to be distributed as the following: 5.72% for founders, advisors, employees, 1.65% to initial investors, 1.44% donated to the foundation and 1.19% to the Electric Coin Company. The reward is now set to end after the block reward halving in November 2020.
About 20% of the mining rewards are distributed to the founders or developers to promote the ZEC ecosystem. The incentive was designed to encourage a dedicated team to provide more development for the project in the upcoming years. According to the Q3 2019 report, the Electric Coin Company operated at a deficit of 30% in Q1 2019. In order for the ECC to maintain a balanced budget through 2020 as the Founders reward and the ZEC foundation donation was reduced in order to increase the ECC compensation.
