WHAT ARE ZUCOINS?
Zucoins is the development of the worlds’ first P2P exchange token. By using a patented technology (Splitcryption), data is fragmented across the network which provides 4 main features:
Zucoins can be thought of as an electronic transfer of value; once you exchange for something, the transaction is irreversible and final. There are no chargebacks or clawbacks or any authority to lodge a claim.
WHO CONTROLS THE ZUCOINS NETWORK/ECOSYSTEM?
Zucoins are traded and exchanged through the SpiltChain network, which will be open source once it has launched. Splitcryption, the technology on which Zucoins are built, has been extended with additional features and mechanisms. This system, SplitChain, significantly reduces the computational effort required to confirm a transaction when compared to conventional blockchains, without compromising transaction integrity.
The peer-to-peer system enables verification of multiple transactions in parallel, increasing the capacity of the network with the increasing number of participants. In contrast, the conventional blockchain approach is for all willing participants to agree on each transaction, resulting in longer transaction wait-times as the number of network participants increase.
Once the SplitChain network is launched and made open sourced, individuals and businesses will be able to use the technology for a variety of different use cases. These use cases will be displayed on the Zucoins website under ‘Technology – SplitChain’ where people can read about them and make use of them.
HOW DO ZUCOINS WORK?
Zucoins are a cryptocurrency and work the same as any exchange of value (money, barter, other cryptocurrencies, work for reward). They can be bought or sold between individuals, traded on cryptocurrency exchanges, used at participating businesses, and traded between peers on the SplitChain network.
HOW DO YOU PURCHASE OR ACQUIRE ZUCOINS?
Currently, there are three ways to purchase Zucoins
HOW DO YOU PURCHASE OR ACQUIRE ZUCOINS?
WHO CAN USE ZUCOINS?
Zucoins or any fraction of Zucoins can be used and accepted by Individuals, Businesses, and Investors if they have the Zucoin Wallet OR are a part of the Zucoin Partner Eco-System.
Zucoins are an electronic value, so you will need a wallet on your mobile phone to hold them. A link is provided to upload a Zucoin wallet when you are sent Zucoins for the first time.
By buying Zucoins in one currency (i.e., USD) and then selling those Zucoins for another currency (i.e., Euros), Zucoins can be used as a medium of FX exchange advantage of no fees for the transactions (NOTE: 3rd party crypto exchanges could charge fees for their services).
HOW DO YOU MAKE A PAYMENT USING ZUCOINS?
You can sell Zucoins to any person or business willing to accept Zucoins for fiat or other goods & services, with no fee. Both Parties will have to have a Zucoins wallet and then the Zucoins are sent from wallet to another wallet.
In the future, Zucoin holders will be able to convert their Zucoins to Points and then tap and pay at any participating Businesses within the Eco-System of Partners. These Points are accepted at any MC or VISA terminal.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF ZUCOINS?
Some of the advantages include:
Zucoins differ from other cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin by:
WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES OF ZUCOINS?
Like all cryptocurrencies, safe storage of information is primary, and this responsibility resides with the holder and only the holder. There is no central back up. Each Zucoin holder is responsible for backing up their own wallet and storing that back-up in a responsible location. If you lose your private key or wallet passcode, this is the same as losing money, jewellery, any form of value, if it’s lost it’s gone, no recourse and no central record.
If the security of your devices is compromised, then this too is your responsibility. These issues are no different to all existing cryptocurrencies and there are excellent and easy solutions currently that negate these problems, e.g., hardware wallets, backups etc.
HOW MUCH DO ZUCOINS COST?
Zucoins pre-launch price is well undervalued based on the technological advances Zucoins and the patent SplitChain network will bring to the World of Cryptocurrency.
There will only ever be 100 million Zucoins, and if we were to compare Zucoins alongside Bitcoin with 21 million coins, the comparison would be on an approximate 5:1 ratio (20%). Therefore, if the Bitcoin price is $50,000, Zucoins price should be $10,000.
Zucoins offers a far better solution by providing scalability, a valid alternative to the current monetary systems, security, speed, fractionalisation, and no fees.
WHERE CAN ZUCOINS BE USED?
In Zucoins stage 1 release, Zucoin holders can only use them in markets that an individual generates by an agreed exchange. In later release stages and partnership developments, Zucoins will be able to be used to purchase goods and/or services from accepting businesses.
ARE ZUCOINS ANONYMOUS?
Zucoins operates on a decentralized system and, therefore, anonymous in principle.
HOW ARE ZUCOINS MADE SECURE?
On top of industry-leading encryption, the Zucoins system employs a technology called Splitlock for several security applications. Every transaction is encrypted and ‘Split’. This involves dividing up the transaction information for it to be sent to many devices. This information can only be unencrypted with a unique hash key stored on separate devices. This makes any attempt at hacking the Zucoins System useless.
CAN ZUCOINS BE LOST? IF SO, WHAT HAPPENS?
Yes. If you lose your private key. This is the same as losing money, jewellery, any form of value, if it’s lost it’s gone, no recourse and no central record.
HOW DO I BACKUP MY WALLET?
Zucoins wallet has a backup feature within the wallet. Please note the backup is backing up your private key and not any transaction data.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I LOSE MY PHONE?
If you have your private key backup and stored outside your phone all you need to do is to use your private key to download a new wallet.
WHAT IF I SEND A LINK TO THE WRONG NUMBER?
You lose the transaction. Same with a bank transfer that is sent to the wrong account (the only difference is you have a central bank that may be able to help you get it back).
AT WHAT STAGE IS DEVELOPMENT NOW?
WHEN WILL ZUCOINS LAUNCH?

WHAT ABOUT ZUCOINS AND TAXES?
Cryptocurrency Taxes in Australia
Like in most parts of the world, there are no taxes on buying or holding cryptocurrencies in Australia. However, keeping accurate records of the purchase is very important so that you can calculate the cost basis of the transaction when you decide to dispose of the crypto. A capital gains tax (CGT) event occurs when you dispose of your cryptocurrency.
