Team Zero Fortnightly Newsletter
Welcome to issue №16 of the Zero Newsletter.
This version is later than our previous fortnightly updates and we’ll be able to get these updates back to their original time-frames. I, (LMC) put my hand up to say that these have lapsed and apologies for any confusion.
We’ve had a fair bit happen in the last month and a half post fork, with an extensive list below that we will explore in some further detail in this update too:
- Release of our latest roadmap
- Overwinter updates to the network
- Sapling updates to the network
- Latest competition
- POR review
- Zero Merchandise
- Two additional vendors accepting Zero
- Soon to be launched exchange Blockbid listing Zero shortly, offering Australian Dollar fiat pairing and also BTC pairing
- Mysterious update via ZER’s Twitter
As always, thank you all for your continued support on Zero’s path to steady, organic growth and we hope you enjoy the products being delivered that can attest to Zero’s current and future status in this realm.
For anyone interested in investing — please do your own research prior to committing to any project and we ask you to please not blindly commit to a project because someone else told you to.
Release of our latest roadmap
The cat is out of the bag regards our latest roadmap and the team has taken many months of discussion to arrive at the planned deliverable’s you see on the map.
Our updates to Zero from the ZCash updates of Overwinter and also Sapling are well underway, with testnets ongoing and successful implementations. If you aren’t sure of what these updates now include here are the links;
Utility Nodes & Staking Wallet
Zero will be introducing Utility Nodes, which are akin to Masternodes in similarity. The difference being with Zero’s Utility Nodes is that they will hold and offer a specific function to the network that will add utility, rather than simply exist.
The details will be released in due course, but what we can do at this point in time is advise that each Utility Node will require 5,000 ZER, offer a 10% block reward, with this reward increasing by 1% — 1.25% each year, over the course of 4–5 years to incentive's holding and value.
We are so excited to get our Utility Nodes released in 2019, so please do keep an eye peeled for further information as we release more information to you all.
We know what our community wants, so we will also be offering staking in a yet to be released wallet that will allow coin control, based on a minimum of 100 ZER. There will be more details to also come in this respect, but our Staking Wallet, combined with our Utility Nodes will really make Zero a formidable competitor in this realm.
Our Ultimate Wallet when released will be our premier wallet that offers the best of all our features, all wrapped up into one easy to use interface. This is still in development at the moment and again, sorry to say, but more information will be released as we can provide more details.
Shielded Mobile Transactions
With the release of the ZCash Sapling update, we will be in 2019, able to offer shielded mobile transactions across our Android and iOS wallets. This will be a culmination of a lot of effort and we are looking forward to the day that we can offer this service and capability.
Zero was given the privilege of being the first ever project reviewed by Proof of Review, a new coin review system that granted Zero the best review level of Tier 3(Gold), meaning that we have been fully certified.
