Parity Announces a Technical Partnership with Zcash

On October 30, Zcash Foundation announced their collaboration with Parity Technologies to build a consensus-compatible Zcash node implementation in Rust

The team-work will lead to the creation of the first Zcash node that isn't built or managed by the Zerocoin Electric Coin Company.

An independent node implementation provides more options for Zcash miners and users, which promotes healthy decentralization of the cryptocurrency protocol as it matures.

Josh Cincinnati, Zcash Foundation Executive Director

Parity plans to use Parity Bitcoin as a starting point and write in the Rust programming language. They will have two engineers to manage development of the new zcash node, while the Zcash Foundation is looking to hire four engineers.

Our technical collaboration with the Zcash Foundation will bolster the cryptocurrency as a tool for financial privacy. We’re excited to leverage the time and expertise that we’ve already invested in Parity Bitcoin, while familiarizing our engineers with zero-knowledge cryptography and building a foundation for a Polkadot Zcash bridge.

Fredrik Harrysson, Parity CTO

Currently, zcashd is the only consensus-compatible node available, so the creation of the other one will increase Zcash network security. Moreover, the software to be built will meaningfully change the power dynamics of the Zcash ecosystem.

The Zcash Foundation

The Zcash Foundation is a financial privacy nonprofit. The organization is devoted to building internet payment and privacy infrastructure for the public good.

Parity Technologies

Parity Technologies is an infrastructure and innovation focused company building platforms and applications, founded by Gavin Wood and Jutta Steiner. Their work combines cutting-edge cryptography, cellular system, peer-to-peer technology and decentralised consensus architectures.

Zcash Gets A Positive Push In Price With The New Bitmain Antminer Z11

Bitmain, the largest manufacturer of cryptocurrency mining hardware in the world has released a new Antminer 11 hardware for Equihash Algorithm. The cryptocurrencies that currently follow Equihash protocol are Zcash, Bitcoin Gold, Komodo and so on. The price of Zcash – $59.87, was trading 6.5% higher on the daily at 11 00 hours UTC on 20th March. According to Bitcoin, the new Antminer Z11 will provide three times the hashing power than its predecessor Antminer Z9. The new Antminer is now pre-selling on Bitmain’s official website and will start shipping shortly. Antminer Z11: Most advanced Zcash Miner The Antminer Z9 will offer a hashing power of 135 Ksols/s. Built on the most advanced microprocessor technology at Bitcoin, the miner is lighter than Antminer Z9. Zcash has advocated ASIC resistance for a long time; however, in June last year, the Zcash Community decided to focus on other developments and updates. Furthermore, Bitmain has also pledged towards transparency and uphold the Zcash community values by maintaining transparent shipment records for the new age miners. According to their blogpost: To this end, we will tweet real-time updates from our QA teams and shipping warehouse via our official account (on 19th June, all Tweets, including these Z9 mini updates, relating to Antminer series and all other products sold on shop.bitmain.com moved to twitter.com/Antminer_main), using the hashtag #Z9QA. Zcash Price Analysis The Zcash ticker increased by 16.5% momentarily on 20th March where the price recorded gains from 0.0138 BTC to 0.0168 BTC. However, it corrected to 0.0148 soon as the HODLERs booked profits in the short term. Zcash/BTC 1H Chart on Bittrex A significant rise in trading volume with a huge buy wall pushed the price of Zcash. Nevertheless, it lost is momentum almost instantaneously due to lack of market support. Moreover, with increased mining efficiencies, the GPU miners who were bearing a loss until now can resort to more profitable hardware for mining Zcash. The increased sustainability for miners reinforces the strength of the Zcash Community. Do you think the GPU mining age is over with Zcash and Ethererum? Share your views with us.
