I’m Awa and I contribute to Anoma and Namada. This is my first time posting in the Zcash community forum and it feels a bit odd because I attended Zcon0/1/3 – anyways, I’m excited to contribute to the Zcash community here!
You might’ve seen the news about the Namada RPGF Drop, which was launched yesterday.
One of the largest categories of Public Goods Builders who are eligible for the Namada RPGF Drop are the contributors to open-source in the Zcash ecosystem, for example:
The Zcash protocol
Zcash Improvement Proposals (ZIPs)
Primitives such as Pasta Curves
Cryptographic protocols like FROST or trusted setups
Wallets e.g. the ZEC Wallet
Tooling like explorers
Learning resources like ZEC Hub
The full list of repositories is under Tab 1 in this sheet.
There are 11 days left until the girl’s claim, has anyone decided what the eligibility process for zec holders will be like? It would be cool to have this down to make articles and tutorials for community members, they are eager for the information
Actually the RPGF Drop Github app is requesting read-only access.
I also find the message “Act on your behalf” really scary, the issue is that this is the default message displayed in cases where the App doesn’t request for any permissions. Other developers of GitHub apps are also having the same concern, as discussed in this thread in the GitHub community.
I’ve brainstormed more ways in which we could include the Zcash community in the current RPGF Drop. Some ideas that popped up included users of the Zcash community forum or Cypherpunk Zero.
We couldn’t fit it all this time, as we were working with very short timelines – but I took a lot of notes in the process and I hope we can include a way bigger part of the Zcash community if there’s a program like this in the future.
The UI/UX for ZEC holders can be more intricate, specially shielded ZEC where we have to make sure that the protocol under the hood or the process for claiming is not hurting the privacy of Zcash users who want to receive the airdrop.
The good news is that launching things like the RPGF Drop have been great forcing functions to make progress in Namada’s end-user interface ecosystem. We hope to continue collaborating with teams in the Zcash ecosystem also on the UI/UX side of things of Zcash <> Namada.
Once those are live, it’d be really cool to see tutorials made by the community like yourself!
