Let’s clarify a few things here before everyone keeps trying to blame Zcash Company for editing posts (based on Cryptomineds mis-informational video).
I’m the one who went back through all my posts to make sure they are more accurate based on what I have learned recently. I overstated Zcash Companies position on one or two posts I made way back in late 2016 when I assumed that this post: https://blog.z.cash/why-equihash/ was a statement of future intent.
As you can see from this post: Your investors suck and I hope you will get forked!
I’m a community volunteer on these Forums and always have been. I don’t appreciate @cryptomined s harrassment and intentional mischaracterization of my position as a Zcash Company employee (which I am not) to try to push his own agenda.
I do not work for Zcash Company and do not represent thier position on anything. I clearly explained this fact to cryptomined here: Let’s talk about ASIC mining and he acknowledged understanding of that fact a couple post’s later in that thread. Cryptomined was well aware that I don’t represent Zcash Company when he made that video but must have “forgot” to mention it to his viewers.
I have never gotten paid from Zcash Company, I don’t get a portion of the Founders Reward, I don’t have any “insider” information, I don’t have GitHub repository access to change Zcashs code, I don’t even have an invite to the private company Slack channel.
If you go back through my post history at no time whatsoever have I said I was a representative of Zcash Company. I never say “we” intend to do this or that. It’s always “they” or “the devs” or whatever.
So ultimately what I say with regards to Zcash Company’s position on anything is to the best of my knowledge at the time and may or may not be 100% correct, I’m only human.
For the past two years I’ve been a member on this forum I’ve always been impressed with how welcoming and thoughtful the Community has been. It’s not until this latest ASIC news that I have such negativity being expounded towards the developers and towards other Community members.
As you can see from my first post in that ASICs thread Let’s talk about ASIC mining
I’m against ASICs for the centralized production of ASIC hardware and the company behind them. I don’t look forward to selling my 1060 rig , but I ultimately have zero say in the matter since I am just a part of the community. Whatever happens I will just move forward with my life and mine with whatever hardware I can use to contribute to the stabillity of the Zcash network.
I’m still going to be a Moderator here because I still believe in the Community and I believe that Zcash is a great technological breakthough and the world needs a more ways to preserve privacy online.
