A community of innovators coming together to work on Zcash
The Zcash Developer Alliance was formed for one purpose: to grow the Zcash ecosystem in support of economic freedom for everyone. Its first deliverable will be Zcash interoperability across select cryptocurrency projects.
Participating ZDA organizations in 2020 include Agoric, Bolt Labs, ConsenSys, iqlusion, Kyber Network, Thesis and Electric Coin Co.
ZDA members are invited to in-person developer summits twice a year, in addition to quarterly conference calls. The initial focus of this group is to develop cross-chain interoperation with top-tier mainnets, and the strategy and agenda of this alliance will be set by its members.
"I'm excited for ConsenSys to join the ZDA to further promote collaboration between the Ethereum and Zcash ecosystems, and advance R&D — particularly in the fields of interoperability and privacy. It feels like it's time for a Zcash / Ethereum bridge."Joseph Lubin, ConsenSys
"We are thrilled to be initial members of the Zcash Dev Alliance! We believe in the mission of the alliance to empower users with economic freedom by advancing Zcash development. We look forward to what we will accomplish together."J. Ayo Akinyele, Bolt Labs
"Agoric is excited to join the Zcash Developer Alliance, as interoperability is crucial to our mission of bringing the vibrant world economy online via safe smart contracts. Working with the ZDA to integrate with Zcash and the zero-knowledge privacy features allows us to offer more to our partners."Dean Tribble, Agoric
"Iqlusion is excited to bring our work on the Cosmos ecosystem, Proof of Stake and hardware-backed keys to Zcash."Zaki Manian, Iqlusion
