I will admit that last fall I was leery of the Komodo people poking around, but they are doing some really amazing things, actually. They didn’t just “pre-fork” (what DO you call it?) zcash and do their genesis first, they have a ton of stuff they have added with their notary node system and BarterDEX is in testing, which will be AMAZING for all the many bitcoin-derived coins it will allow to be traded without needing an exchange. They did XCAT transactions between komodo and bitcoin with zcash weeks or months before ZcashCo did (they also didn’t give me a heads up that they were testing XCAT with HUSH ahead of time, jl777 was just all “oh hai yeah btw we have XCAT with HUSH and btc/kmd, etc pairs”…permissionless ftw!).
And all the zcash forks that I"m aware of send patches up and down the line to and from zcash and bitcoin, at least the major forks (there are more and more of them all the time…hell, a couple of people re-forked HUSH already!).
Disclosures: No I’m not an employeee of ZECC aka ZcashCo nor SuperNET, but I do support the Komodo port to Windows on contract, and have received, and am applying for additional, grants from the Zcash Foundation. And as the Lead Dev of HUSH I do control the keys to what little remains of their pre-mine from before I arrived on the scene.
