Very well produced video, I personally enjoyed it but sort of wish they went into more detail in regards to how Snowden came into contact with the team at ECC.

Did he first reach out to them or they him? If so how was that done?

I also stumbled upon this cool bit of info archived (saw a flash of this document in the Zcash media video so I googled “zerocash1 John Dobbertin” which I saw on the title and found it.) :

Indeed! We are writing the behind the scenes video that has more detail right now :slight_smile:

Kind of like what you might get with a Blu-Ray copy of a movie.
