Hello Zcash friends! Six years ago I became part of the Zcash ecosystem and since then I’ve contributed quietly and in different capacities. In 2022 I approached ZF with an idea and was incredibly fortunate to receive a ZF grant in order to establish Mass Adoption Alliance, which became a 501(c)(3) public charity the following year. The goal of MAA is empowering youth through education about financial privacy.
MAA is going to be developing a new Zcash community resource and there’s an opportunity for everyone to play a role, make a contribution and join in on the fun! This project is going to be a great, open source, evergreen resource!
It’s with great excitement that I announce the kickoff of My First Zcash! This will be an educational e-workbook, which is a fork of the open source diploma program used by Mi Primer Bitcoin, in El Salvador. The audience for the resource will be teens to adults.
The broader vision is for the content to be utilized as the anchor for a five-session course that could be delivered online or in-person. Who loves teaching people about Zcash? I’m looking at you!
When I first started thinking about this project, I reached out to several people to discuss the concept and talk it through a bit. One of those people was @autotunafish, who suggested I think about how to make the content evergreen, which was of course an excellent idea!
I followed up on that by connecting with @decentralistdan to brainstorm and, generous as-always with his time and talent, he set up a call and introduced me to @squirrel to talk about the possibility of ZecHub administering a bounty program to provide an avenue for keeping the content evergreen. Squirrel was open to the idea, which I really appreciated!
So, this post is the jumping off point for the My First Zcash project! Would you like to get involved? I sure hope so! This deck outlines the project in some detail. *If you are game to help create content, please have a look at p.4!
I’ll work on getting a Discord channel set up and hope you’ll join me out there for some fun and collaboration!
