My new gig with ECC

Hey Zcash family!

In the interest of transparency I wanted to let everyone know I have started a part-time gig with ECC as a contract consultant.

As you know the team is focused on getting ECC rebooted to drive Zcash adoption. I’ll be meeting with Chris, Paul, and Josh on a weekly basis to help provide an overview on what’s going on in various Zcash community channels like this forum, Twitter, Telegram, Reddit, Bluesky, etc. The purpose is to help make sure concerns and feedback from all the various community channels don’t get overlooked.

This will also help ECC to plan and release communications that address community ideas, feedback, and questions.

With that in mind there is a new handle here on the forum: @ElectricCoinCo. @adjychris and I will watch this handle for pings and chatter. Please feel free to @ it with general ECC-related questions like roadmap, strategy, priorities, etc. DMs to that handle won’t be replied to.

This doesn’t mean that other ECC team members will stop engaging on these channels. Their insight and input are extremely valuable, and they will continue to take part in community conversations.

I’m happy to be able to help ECC as they focus on how to move Zcash forward.

Onward and Upward :rocket:

I hope you try free2z sometime and give us some feedback :crying_cat_face:

@skyl I have been on Free2Z several times, and tuned into the Livestream too.

It’s a pretty awesome platform. I do include it in my “rounds” of places to check for what’s happening in the community, along with ZecHub.

Hey man, just fooling around. Reddit and Bluesky are particularly nauseating to me :face_vomiting:. I get a lot of my news from free2z now and I guess I miss a lot since people are posting to disgraceful places lol. Anyways, congrats on the spot and hope to see some essays and announcements on f2z. I’ve got one brewing that has taken a while, working title: “Zcash’s trillion dollar niche.” Maybe I’ll get around to publishing it. I was hoping to get it out before Zeboot … anyhoo, onward :rocket:

I’m pretty much platform agnostic really, I go wherever the Zcash community likes to talk.

As we progress further in the year and things like the ECC roadmap, Zashi, Zcashd → Zebra, etc… are released I’m sure we will see a lot more community chatting. It’s a bit slow right now on all the channels because there’s not a ton to discuss.
