Sorry for the silence on the last few questions. I have some quick answers from @nathan-at-least that will hopefully do for this context. If you want to discuss any topic further, feel free to branch out on a new thread.
- any idea on when hardware wallets(ledger) will support shielded addresses?
We’ve discussed shielded address support with multiple hardware wallets. The path forward is clear enough, but the support itself will require some dedicated engineering (for embedded support + a delegated proving service in bridges/desktop components). That’s more effort than basic mobile wallet support (our top priority) and more effort than most exchanges (our next priority). That leaves hardware wallet support as lower in the ecosystem priority list for ECC at this time.
- Any progress on the issues with libzcash libraries that Matthew Green brought up on the Chat ( supporting T-Z interop)
As mentioned in the livestream, we want to support T-addrs, and we’re working on that functionality. For the exact requirements were listening closely to partner use case needs.
- will user issued tokens be included in the next network upgrade? or in another planned upgrade in the future?
This is a potentially valuable protocol improvement, but at this time we’re not actively planning for it. If an advocate wants to develop a ZIP we already have put in early design effort so we could direct that advocate to that work and help provide context or review their proposal.
