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

Has there been any research into doing zcash pegged 1:1with bitcoin to avoid having to compete with bitcoin's liquidity and allow both technologies to grow together?

Re: OVERVIEW: BITCOIN HARDWARE WALLETS █████████████████ Secure your Coins!

With Copay's recent release it might be worthwhile to mention somewhere in OP that that Trezor and Ledger work with Copay multisig for extra security. The main significance is that by creating 2 of 2 wallets where one key is the hardware wallet and the other key software based, the risk of tampered ...

I think it would be very useful to have a web GUI interface to JoinMarket. Something simple where you load the coins you want mixed and output addresses. The website runs joinmarket in the background. Joinmarket would also have the advantage of still being useful once confidential transactions come ...

Re: How To Create A Multisig Address and Spend From It

And on the other end of the difficulty spectrum is Copay. It allows the easy creation of multisig with very little room to screw up. You can even use it with yourself by installing it on multiple devices you own. Just remember to write down the seed for every device or person you invite to the multi...

Re: The big thread about multisig

My favorite setup is Copay because it is very hard to screw up and very secure and can be done by yourself as the only cosigner. Pick two different devices that you own and install Copay on it. (It's better if they are different platforms such as Android and home PC) On one Copay installation create...

Re: Use Copay and a few home electronics for a secure bitcoin wallet

Screenshots look a little old. ;)

Remember everyone that as long as you actually write down those 12 words for each device in the multisig setup you can't accidentally lose the keys to sign the transaction when you want to spend it!
