A wiki for everything related to Zcash design and implementation.
This repository is a fork of Bitcoin Core which contains protocol changes to support the Zerocash protocol. This implements the Zcash cryptocurrency, which maintains a separate ledger from the Bitcoin network, for several reasons, the most immediate of which is that the consensus protocol is different.
Zcash development is an open collaborative process. If you'd like to contribute, join our chat system and check out some of these channels:
- #zcash - general user chat.
- #zcash-dev - software and protocol development.
- #community-collaboration - other open source development related to zcash.
- #the-zcash-foundation - a room to define and develop the Zcash Foundation, an organization to steward the community, protocol, and science around Zcash.
- #zcash-apprentices - a study and peer-education room.
- #zcash-wizards - mad scientist brainstorming.
Zcash development is transitioning into a working group model, which you can read about on the working groups page. Join or create new working groups.
