Are Alex Biryukov or Dmitry Khovratovich involved in the project?


I read through the Equihash paper ( and I was curious if Alex Biryukov or Dmitry Khovratovich are involved with the project.


They wrote the POW for Equihash that is being incorporated into Zcash but I do not think they are a direct part of the team.


Thanks for the link. It looks like quite a lot of the people who have been developing zk-SNARKs implementations are still involved.


They're not a part of the team, but we have had email conversations with them.


thanks for replay Daira
