Meet Luxor, the first mining pool to mine shielded coinbase

Dear Zcashers:

I’d like to introduce you to Nick Hansen, CEO of the Luxor Mining Pool. Luxor has been a long-time supporter of Zcash. They were one of the first to enable shielded payouts to their miners and recently mined the first shielded coinbase block, which occurred at block height #949496.

You can see the transaction here: https://explorer.zcha.in/blocks/949496

This is an important moment for Zcash. Luxor is responsible for approximately 8% of hashpower on the Zcash network and their switch to shielded coinbase improves the privacy for the entire network. Feel free to give them a warm welcome!
