Hello everyone, and happy October! Here’s a snappy update on the Foundation’s September doings.
We took over the Zcash forum and the chat: Forum handover + URL change
We sponsored the Zero Knowledge Summit in Berlin. Check out the videos from the event: Zero Knowledge Summit 2018 - Part 1 of 2 - YouTube
The Foundation also sponsored Crypto Springs in Palm Springs (in fact, Josh is attending right now).
We launched a full guide to running Zcash meetups: home - zcash foundation
Unveiled our new visual branding: https://twitter.com/ZcashFoundation/status/1040691595341848576
Announced an upcoming meetup during SF Blockchain Week: Login to Meetup | Meetup
The Foundation also continued to work on technical hiring. A couple of favored candidates fell through, unfortunately, but we’re pursuing multiple proposals for reference wallet implementations (both on mobile and desktop). We still want to hire a protocol developer, so please send this link to anyone who might be interested: Hire protocol developer · Issue #74 · ZcashFoundation/ZcashFoundation · GitHub
We started fleshing out the new website, which will be more organized and accessible — see the WIP here: GitHub - RichardLitt/zfnd.io: The Zcash Foundation Website
We started brainstorming a revamped, nimbler Grants Program. Details are still being figured out.
And lastly, Antonie is still doing early planning for Zcon1. We hope to announce a location soon!
