Electrical Coin Co. kicked off a brand new custom final month: the Fellowship of the ZEC.

Our purpose is to get one ZEC handed to every particular person on the firm utilizing solely shielded transactions. In an effort to show now we have “touched” the ZEC, and thus participated within the fellowship, we add our names to the memo subject as we cross it alongside the following particular person within the chain. 

As a result of it’s the season of giving, we’re additionally together with within the memo subject a charity of alternative that accepts ZEC (try Paywithz.money for a full checklist). Every particular person within the chain has the choice of including a little bit extra to the pot earlier than passing it onto the following particular person. As soon as the ZEC has been handed alongside to each particular person on the firm, we are going to donate the ultimate quantity to the charity with probably the most memo subject votes. Keep tuned for an replace!

Within the first hour of this train, we handed the ZEC by six shielded addresses (zaddrs), together with a historic zaddr, the primary Sapling shielded handle to obtain a fee on mainnet (in block 419201) and the primary to make a completely shielded Sapling fee. We used Zcashd, zecwallet-lite CLI, zecwallet-lite GUI and zecwallet full node. Some folks even made their transaction over Tor. (Why Tor, you ask? Whereas shielded transactions offer you blockchain-level privateness, making the transaction over Tor provides you further network-level privateness.) 

“It would sound corny, however these traditions convey us collectively. It’s enjoyable to be taught and play with the know-how we work so laborious to create, day in and day trip,” mentioned Kevin Gorham, ECC’s principal cell engineer. “There may be a lot energy and potential on this protocol.”

And in case you assume all of this sounds too difficult, simply ask Andy Murray, our CFO. “If I did it, anybody can do it.”

Ship a shielded transaction of ZEC to your charity of your alternative and embrace “Fellowship of the ZEC” within the memo subject. Are you a nonprofit group that advocates for privateness? Attain out and we will get you arrange with supporting shielded ZEC donations.
