It relies on high RAM requirements to bottleneck the generation of proofs and making ASIC development unfeasible.  ZCash uses  zero-knowledge Succinct Non-interactive Arguments of Knowledge (zk-SNARKs) to ensure that all information (sender, reciever, ammount) is encrypted, without the possibility of double-spending.
