Hey all, my name is Ben. While I’m not an active member of the Zcash community, I am a fan of the project, and a di minimis holder of ZEC.
I wanted to share something I wrote a couple of weeks ago that I hope will be salient to the community’s discussion on dev funding. You can find it here:
Here’s the TL;DR: for those of us who were idealistic supporters of the early FOSS movement, the current challenges most decentralized cryptonetworks are facing around funding seem eerily familiar. And not in a good way. Given that Zcash already has a social norm around protocol-level development funding, I recommend you keep it intact.
Thanks for you time!
