This combined with the overwhelming support of the community, we are confident that the consequences of Gary’s threatened fork will be minimal. From now onwards, Gary Le has no relation to the Zcoin project although he retains control of the old domain of zcoin.tech, /r/ZcoinProject, and the Twitter account of @ZcoinProject.
To avoid any issues, please update to the latest version of Zcoin here: https://github.com/zcoinofficial/zcoin/releases as soon as possible.
We are also aware of the complaints as to the slow wallet startup and development is now being focused in improving this.
We from the Zcoin team would like to thank the community for their support and understanding during this challenging time and we look forward to bringing Zcoin to new heights with a reinvigorated team.
