Program areas at Zcash Foundation

Community: We support the transition of Zcash into a large and healthy community with diverse stakeholders, held accountable to its userbase in the broadest sense.
Science: Technical decisions are best supported by scientific activities, such as rigorous validation, empirical measurement, and continued innovation and refinement. We will therefore support these activities within our community. All cryptocurrencies, but especially Zcash, rely on cutting-edge contributions from the scientific research community, thus interaction with this community can also help the community stay healthy. We will encourage this scientific research and educate the public regarding the substance and benefits of these scientific developments.
Protocol and Governance: The Zcash protocol and the open network it powers is valuable, privacy-protecting Internet infrastructure; it should be developed and maintained by an open and diverse community of experts and enthusiasts, and it should remain always a tool for financial privacy available to the general public. We will act as stewards of the Zcash protocol, providing leadership and supporting its continued maintenance and improvement.
