Re: I'm Zooko Wilcox, CEO of the Zcash Company. Ask me anything!

Zooko

You've got yourself a pretty strong line up congrats on that.

First question are you and/or your team involved with Bitcoin Classic? I'm asking this 'cause with all due respect Zcash doesn't seem to be "just" a privacy centric new coin. You guys are gonna join the club to compete with Bitcoin Core. More like a plan B if Classic isn't adopted. And I say this based on the fact you've already got real untraceability on a coin like VERGE/DOGED. Don't get me wrong I really respect your project and I'll keep following it but you guys need to come out straight right away on the real reason and goals. Money alone won't take you guys to Mars check out Jed you know him well his thing is an huge challenge but he was clean on his projec from the get go.

Second question if the real purpose is really untraceability and you come from the alternative scene why not just team up with something that's already working out there? It would make much more sense to join a working community got them invested on you right? We already got over 600 coins out there each calling themselves special from day one.

Wish you guys luck as long as you guys deserve it ;)

I notice that ZCash has some funding from DARPA and the AFRL. Could you comment on what their motivation might be to do that? What is it about ZCash that appeals to those organisations?

Hi Zooko, Really love your work and am mining :)

I would like to know this too.
How much does DARPA and the other government funding bodies from zero cash research have to do with the Zcash project now?

I've seen evidence of people related to Core pumping the price of Bitcoin. What's their response to this?

In general, in any market, there is always going to be people pumping the price. This is inevitable, even on major stock exchanges.

The best tip is to have entry and exit prices, never hold on too long, unless your investment is long-term.

I should have good trading information available soon, I did plan to provide some sooner, however, I have been a little busy.

If you are running a version of Bitcoin Core, stop using it. Upgrade to Bitcoin Unlimited or Classic immediately.

Great discussion point. I was about to post a similair thread. The biggest group of uneducated investors in mankind has to define the trustworthyness and price of a crypto. It's an interesting world we live in. This is quite an interesting website I found: https://www.coincheckup.com. Supposingly they researched every crypto coin in the scene based on: the team, the product, advisors, community, the business and the business model. They even score the coins stengths. For example: https://www.coincheckup.com/coins/Zcash#analysis To see the: Zcash Analysis

Hi Zooko. Found event ZCash "focused entirely on making itself and future network upgrades safer for users, even in the case of governance contention" Network Upgrade https://tothemoon.live/?IsPast=False&Pa ... 9&SortBy=0 Can you please explain what to expect and why should it be safer to use. It's not safe to invest now? Thanks
