May 31, 2019 - Weekly Update (Community + Comms)

This is our fortnightly community and communications update; last week’s engineering update is available here.

Today we announced the rollout of our new domain — — and a fresh company brand! We unveiled these in keeping with the promise we made when the company name change was announced. Our goal is to provide additional clarity about the difference between the Electric Coin Company and Zcash, the cryptocurrency. Read today’s blog post for complete details.

And hey look, we have a new Twitter handle :arrow_right: @electriccoinco

If you are wondering what will happen to — good news! It will continue to host information about the Zcash ecosystem that is not specific to the company — such as protocol announcements, regulatory resources, security information, educational guides and more. This site will host announcements posted by both the company and the foundation.

Also happening this week is an engineering team sprint focused on NU3 feature selection, wallet improvement and PR review. Stay tuned for a forum update from the team next week.
