I hereby nominate Andrew Miller to serve another term as a member of the Zcash Foundation board.

He is currently chair of the Foundation’s board.


Thanks for the nomination, and yes I accept, I’d be very happy to continue contributing to Zcash foundation for another term. My full time job is doing research on smart contract programming languages at U of I. After initially founding Zfnd, I’ve mainly contributed in planning our governance process like the CAP and negotiating the trademark sharing agreement with ECC.
You may also know me for small experiments like

My priority goals for Zfnd include continually improving our transparency and distributed governance, building decentralization into Zcash by creating space for more independent developer teams, collaborating with ECC to bring shielded UDAs into reality, and making Zfnd into a leading organization among privacy tech development and advocacy nonprofits.


Congrats Andrew!
