I would like to start some discussion around getting Zcash open source software easily available on Start9Labs’ EmbassyOS, which is a graphical operating system for running self-hosted software.
Quick description from their website:
-‘It offers one-click installation of powerful, open-source services like Bitcoin, Lightning, data storage, password management, instant messaging, social networking, and more. There is no command line involved, and no technical expertise required”
-‘You use your Embassy and its installed services in total privacy, right from the browser, from anywhere on Earth, and there are no trusted 3rd parties. What you do with your Embassy is your business; it cannot be monitored or accessed by anyone - not even Start9, not even your ISP. It is your sovereign territory in the land of the Internet”
I feel this product/company is a perfect fit for the Zcash community & a no brainer for ZOMG funding of some sort. Imagine a one click install of Zcash nodes & apps for people with no technical experience hosted on either DIY or prebuilt hardware. Not only will this help onboard new users, but will be a valuable tool for current Zcash users.(including myself)
I would love to see the @ZOMG fund individuals &/or teams & possibly even the Start9Labs team itself to make Zcash open source software easily available to host on their EmbassyOS product.
