Zooko Wilcox Pushes for New Developer Fund to Support Zcash
Zcash founder Zooko Wilcox has called for the creation of a new "Dev Fund" to support the operations of the privacy-focused cryptocurrency.
Because privacy means different things to different people, a privacy-focused internet is unlikely to please everyone. But it should offer greater personal control.
In this wide-ranging conversation, CoinDesk reporter Leigh Cuen and early cypherpunk Zooko Wilcox discuss what crypto can learn from technology successes and failures in the '80s and '90s.
Zcash developer Electric Coin Company will transition to a new non-profit, with a majority of shareholders electing to donate their equity.
Can an altcoin outgrow its founders? A new agreement between Electric Coin Company and the Zcash Foundation could be a good first step.
According to Electric Coin Company research, you can prove the whole bitcoin blockchain in less space than a bitcoin blockhead, only 80-bytes of data.
