We are excited to share our updated roadmap to everyone to reflect our current state of development, our additional capabilities from our new hires and advancements in technology.
The roadmap not only reflects what we have achieved thus far but what we have in the pipeline.
Notable additions include:
- User interface overhaul, which represents a significant departure from the standard Bitcoin QT GUI and will guide users through proper usage of our functions and especially the privacy portions with a Electron Vue.js and ZeroMQ backend.
- Zerocoin v2 is meant to serve to improve the performance and usability of Zerocoin while we work on our next-gen privacy protocol.
- Dandelion is built off the work of researchers that aims to obscure the source IP of a transaction that provides protection to those not using TOR and even additional protection to those who do.
- Sigma to be replaced by our next-gen privacy protocol (name to be decided) with a whitepaper release in late July/early August.
- Smart contract support
- Community governance
Over the next few weeks we’ll be elaborating each of these roadmap points to give further clarity to our intended direction for Zcoin. You can also drop by our Telegram or Discord channels to find out more!
The roadmap information above is being shared in order to outline some of our current plans and best estimates for Zcoin, but like everything else in life, things can change even the best laid plans. We are hopeful that the following can shed some light on our roadmap, but it is important to understand that it is being shared for informational purposes, and not as a binding commitment. Please do not rely on this information in making purchasing decisions because ultimately, the development, release, and timing of any features or functionality remains at the sole discretion of the Zcoin team, and is subject to change.
