I like Zcash because I think private unmediated digital cash is incredibly important for a cashless society. They have more expertise with zk-SNARKs than anyone in the space (not counting the SCIPR Lab). Worst thing about Zcash is they want to call hard forks "network upgrades."

Tezos has less checks and balances than off-chain governance in BTC or ETH because it disenfranchises node operators of their role in governance.

Algorand is so bad....no asynchronous safety, a more than half honest assumption, no incentive mechanism design...

On chain governance is a disaster -- coin vote based governance [as in Cosmos] is a disgrace....it disenfranchises everyone who doesn't have coins -- even those with only a small amount.
