Help people in need by sending money to them directly. 2. Advance real-world usage and benefits of cryptocurrency. 3. Provide universal access to an open financial system.” The fund plans to raise $10 million for the first phase. It has secured $3.5 million so far, which began with a $1 million donation from Armstrong himself. The long-term goal is $1 billion in the next two years.

The new fork “Overwinter” introduces several performance enhancements to the Zcash protocol. “Transaction expiry” allows the network to automatically cancel ZEC transactions that have not been added to a block within a predetermined period of 20 blocks (~50 minutes). Another feature is simply preparing the network to adapt to future hardforks with inevitable improvements. The main is already planned, called Sapling. It is scheduled to go live in October. Developers say that this fork will increase transaction efficiency and scalability, particularly for transactions made from privacy-enhancing “shielded addresses.” Zcash released a two-year roadmap on their blog about all upcoming upgrades. Zcash will eventually become “privacy-by-default” instead of allowing users to choose anonymous vs. standard transactions with ZEC. The original fork is still operating currently, users are free to decline to upgrade.
