Zapa Labs Solves PoS transition for Zcash?

Hi Zodlers,

So I was lucky to read on twitter that someone created, to the best of my knowledge, PoS version of Zcash… is this true? I know that @zooko has reached out to him through twitter.

Repo: GitHub - zapalabs/zapa

To answer your question, I don’t think so.

The project developer also announced the project on Discord. It’s a Zcash fork on Avalanche, currently still in development. I’m not sure how does it work as I’m not familiar with the Avalanche ecosystem. Hopefully something cool turns out from it.

It’s great to see someone experiment with Zcash node & tech running as a subnet under Avalanche. ZAPA validators also need to become an Avalanche validator on main-net which requires locking in 2000 AVAX ~$120,000.

I’m excited about this experiment and look forward to how much value can be locked inside a private shielded network running under a public network & avalanche consensus mechanism. ZAPA is a huge improvement over pass-through privacy tech like Sherpa Cash. https://sherpa.cash/

Zcash on the other hand is moving ahead to trustless pools & building Shielded Assets, and ZEC integrations with the crypto ecosystem continue to grow every day.
