I propose to set-up and maintain an additional 8 'Dual Stack' Zcash addnode Tor hidden service .onion nodes, with;
4 new nodes as Zcash hidden services.
2 new Relay nodes as Zcash hidden services.
2 new nodes as full Tor Exit Nodes, with website information about Zcash including how to connectivity.
To continue with this project for a minimum 12 month duration I require funding of $2,100 (US)
Any additional community funding above the 12 months requirement will go towards the ongoing administration costs, expenses, research and development, extending hosting and increasing the capacity of existing nodes, where necessary.
Funding donations are accepted in Zcash and Bitcoin via addresses published by myself in this thread below. If you would prefer to fund this independent project via a private address then please send me a PM.
Current funding target achieved : 15% (approx. considering any price fluctuations).
I am a long standing member of the Bitcoin community and this project proposal has been given the initial go ahead by @zooko, in so much as he would also very much like to see ongoing and stable Tor node support for the Zcash project.
These new Tor nodes - dedicated to Zcash connectivity over Tor will not be used for any nefarious activity whatsoever and I have partnered with tornull.org and our hosting providers to limit any potential Exit node 'abuse' issues.
