ROADMAP FOR ZCASH

Image result for zcash

NETWORK UPGRADE 0 - OVERWINTER

Activation Schedule: June, 2018
Network Upgrade 0 - Overwinter is focused entirely on making itself and future network upgrades safer for users, even in the case of governance contention. We'll describe more of its design and features in an upcoming post.

NETWORK UPGRADE 1 - SAPLING

Activation Schedule: September, 2018
Network Upgrade 1 - Sapling will activate the Sapling protocol update, bringing orders of magnitude improvements in both time and memory to shielded transactions, making mobile wallet support feasible. Additionally, Sapling will rely on the Powers of Tau open-participation parameter setup, largely mitigating concerns about the parameter setup risks for zkSNARK applications (including other applications outside of Zcash).

BEYOND SAPLING

An open community of scientists and engineers world-wide is already at work exploring what other improvements are technologically possible for Zcash and other such open cryptocurrencies. Possibilities include scalability improvements to allow practically unlimited numbers of transactions, novel consensus algorithms such as Proof-of-Stake, and private and scalable smart contracts. Join the discussion on the Zcash Community Chat (note: not owned or operated by the Zcash Company — it is an independent community-operated chatroom).
Whatever improvements Zcash adds beyond Sapling, you can rest assured that we’ll honor our tradition of providing both stability and valuable innovation for our users.
