The monero comparison wiki states zcash is not decentralized. Why? Also since it's a monero subreddit, it can be seen as biased toward monero. What are some comparisons to make dash or zcash bias over monero?

The monero comparison wiki states zcash is not decentralized. Why?

The link you posted in your question, if you scroll down the page, has a pretty thorough answer to the question.

Most common criticisms of Zcash are the "Trusted Setup" and the "Founders Reward".

    Again, it's covered in the linked article. "Zcash was launched by way of something called the "multi-party computation" – also known as a "trusted setup." "The public parameters (zk-SNARK providing and verifying keys)" for Zcash's launch were constructed in a ceremony spearheaded by six individuals... The ceremony used a multi-party computation protocol with the property that the resulting parameters are secure unless all of the participants were dishonest or compromised during the ceremony"
