Dear BTCZ Community,
We have an interesting proposal by Miles, frontman of the ZEL Foundation.
For those who may not know , ZEL is a friendly cryptocurrency (I would say a precious ally for btcz), known for their nice multiwallet "Zelcore".
Zelcore included BTCZ among the very first coins for free , giving an extra option to those who have btcz, for both iOS and Android mobile devices and for all desktop operating systems as well.
Proposal from Miles Manley on behalf of Zel Labs to port the new Zepio Zcash wallet from the Zcash Foundation to BTCZ to create ZapBTCZ
Hey BTCZ , my proposal is for my team and I to port the Zepio wallet recently released by the Zcash Foundation for BTCZ. ZapBTCZ will be a Sapling-enabled shielded-address-first BTCZ wallet, cross-platform macOS, Windows and Linux, built-in full node with support for mainnet and testnet, as well as dark and light themes. ZapBTCZ will be free to use (No dev tx fee), open source and built on a modern tech stack (JS and electron.)
Regarding maintenance of ZapBTCZ, support from my team and I from Zel Labs will last for a term of 3 years for core functions, that are available at release. This means all features at release will be maintained for this period, including any network upgrades and BTCZ binary releases. Other features may be added in this period as per requests and suggestions depending on difficulty to implement and time needed to implement. Further funding may be needed to fund such development of extra features.
I look forward to working on this and providing a fresh, clean and simple approach to a wallet for the BTCZ community.
The total cost for this proposal is 5,000,000 BTCZ (five million BTCZ).
The payment plan that has been asked by the proposers would be as described below :
2,125,000 btcz before the release
2,125,000 btcz after the release
250,000 btcz each June ( June 2020 , 2021 , 2022)
The aesthetics of the wallet will be compatible with the most oftenly used dominant colours (based on blue colour codes that have been used for the most artworks about our coin) and it will be branded with our classic logo.
In my humble opinion this is a very nice proposal, with a logical cost.
A modern full wallet compatible with all the Operating Systems, would be a great addition and another great development advance for BTCZ.
In addition we would build even stronger bridges with a friendly project which has been a really worthy one.
PS1. You can find two screenshot samples in the lowest part of the proposal
PS2. Please take in mind that this proposal is completely compatible (cost-wise) with our developer’s gifts proposal.
Our Community Fund can afford both of them and it will have enough funds for the next quarter’s Community Subwallets as well !
Of course more funds will be gathered soon in VaultZ , and we will get more development targets as well!
