Privacy coin zcash is gearing up for its upcoming "Sapling" hard fork with the first release of compatible network software.
EOS' launch has been fraught with controversy. Some users are fed up, and they're forking the protocol to give the network a better shot.
Zcash has successfully activated its Overwinter hard fork, setting the privacy-focused cryptocurrency up for its major Sapling upgrade in the autumn.
With its community aligned, Zcash's first hard fork, Overwinter, might not be exciting. But as always, you never really rule out a blockchain split.

Parity Technologies has said it has no plans to move forward with a code change that would result in an ethereum blockchain split.
