Hi @jmsjsph.

The Zcash Company is an independent software development company that works on the protocol for the benefit of the community. We cannot comment on the token value.

@ all the guys from the zcash company,

Do you use Zcash in your daily live for paying for goods?

Do you get paid 100% in $$$ or do you get some of it in zcash?

Technically, bitcoin-shielded zcash xcat should be possible once/if bitcoin adds Schnorr signatures, using what’s sometimes called “Scriptless Scripts” https://joinmarket.me/blog/blog/flipping-the-scriptless-script-on-schnorr/
The machinery to make that happen on the Zcash side is similar to what you need for shielded multisig, that I’m working on as a side project, though there’s no commitment from the company to release that as a feature for now…

[edit] ohh wait it would also require adding some timelock mechanism for shielded tx in Zcash
