What if we merge existing non-profit organizations & also create new kind of on-chain organization, that funds devs in ZEC. (So, Zcash Bootstrap — US non-profit + Zcash DAO — can be registered with Wyoming & become legal DAO in US) . This way if there is an attack on Zcash in US, there will be one organization (Zcash DAO) left to continue Zcash mission. Zcash devs can be directly funded via DAO if there is ever an attack.
ZF & ECC existence means each one will keep the other one in check but I feel it is not necessary for success of Zcash. Whatever ZF and ECC individually does, can be done faster with single centralized entity. There are definitely some things that are redundant amongst two organizations. Internal conflicts are faster to resolve, there is clear decision maker for each issue. No reason to communicate every single issue with community. New decentralized entity (DAO?) will ensure any dev in the world can contribute to Zcash & earn ZEC.
We need to seriously consider this possibility
