Announcing Zcon Voices!

The Zcash Foundation (ZF) is excited to announce the first in what we hope will become a new series of hyper-local events called “Zcon Voices.” This project, and several others we’ll be announcing in 2023, strive to share ZF’s expertise and resources with our global community. The goal of Zcon Voices is supporting local, grassroots action that brings Zcash and financial privacy to communities that need it most.

Our goal for Zcon Voices is to provide a venue and a platform for regional-specific conversation and education about strong use cases for Zcash and financial privacy. Conferences will be contextualized—organized by local groups, presented in the local language, and will focus on local opportunities and relevant challenges.

Zcon Voices events will complement ZF’s annual Zcon event, further expanding the surface area available for conversation, engagement and education throughout the Zcash ecosystem.

ZF will provide financial and logistical support for these events, but ultimately the content, location, and other details will be driven by our local partners. ZF looks forward to amplifying the voices of Zcashers in their local communities, regions, and beyond.

The first event in the Zcon Voices series is called “Zcon Vozes,” which will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on March 18th, delivered in Portuguese. This conference is being held in partnership with Michael2xl, a former Zcash Ambassador, and his amazing Zcash Brazil crew, who previously received a separate grant for furthering Zcash Brazil’s impact. Full details and the official announcement to follow in this thread.

Future Zcon Voices events will be announced later in 2023. Stay tuned!

Thank you for the opportunity, and for choosing Brazil to host this event, we are very excited.

This will be the first event of the Zcon Voices series, which will be called “Zcon Vozes” because it is in Brazil, and will be held in Rio de Janeiro, on March 18, at the “Museu do Amanhã” - Bem-vindo | Museu do Amanhã, in Portuguese, as workshop format - from 9 am - 8 pm.

It will be an informative, accessible, invitation-only event, with giveaways and much more experience.

We will share all the details and updates with the community, and we are committed to making it a memorable event, so please feel free to ask questions about the event.

Thank you,

Zcash Brazil
