Hey everyone at Z-Community,
I’ve been keeping up with the most recent changes going in the community, development space this year. The most recent being in Zebra becoming appointed as the primary implementation for the project wherein all future ZIP’s proposals, development, and network upgrades. This is all being done with the intent of the implementation eventually becoming the majority shareholder of the network to serve as the lead implementation for the Zcash project.
That idea in itself directly influenced me into pitching this idea, project to the community in which I’ve started to pick back up as of recently.
I’m thinking of building out a full node implementation for Zcash.
Having originally maintained, worked on full node re-implementations in the past years for projects like (BCH, LTC, and even Bitcoin sidechains as of recent). I thought I’d approach this idea, and implementation in the same fashion as the original Zcash did by building itself as a fork of the original bitcoin full node implementation only difference is the language it’s built on.
The goal of mine is to introduce a ubiquitous full node that can be used as general-purpose library and serve the network as an alternative that can also help secure the network in case of any bugs that solely based on referenced implementations (obviously still premature but that is the intent). While making the project easier to maintain, contribute and build on top of, with for any general purpose whether it be mobile, or web without the need of any bottlenecks or wrappers to use the network. Solely running a full node implementation, or SPV node will allow the client to call onto native things that can be built on top of using the entire general-purpose libraries found throughout the repository.
I’ve linked the repository and submission below to give more background, info on the submission I’ve made. I want us to get somewhere in which opinions and influence can turn this proposal into an actual materialized project with all of our voluntary will.
