ZenCash Community Bounties From BlockOps
Author: @Blockops
Date: 2018/07/12

There are many things people in the community can do today to improve the ZenCash ecosystem. I am announcing bounties from me personally in support of spreading the Zen vision throughout the globe.
Update – Bounty 2 is closed, with 12 valid entries paid. See comments below for current status of the bounties.

Bounty 1: Swing Wallet Shielded Transaction Videos (Bounty =12 at 12 ZEN each)

We have the ability to send truly private or anonymous payment and messages today, using Zero-Knowledge Proof cryptography, with the ZenCash Swing Wallet.

In order to help people protect their privacy, I am looking for people to create instructional videos on how to use the Swing Wallet to do shielded payments and messaging. There are many ways to do this, and the video should both educate and entertain, if possible. The idea is to create a video that will get other people to start using private and anonymous payments with ZenCash.

:fire::fire: The first 12 people to submit instructional videos will receive a 12 ZEN bounty. :fire::fire:


Topics can include:

  • Using the Swing Wallet on MAC, PC, or Linux.
  • Self-shielding safely
  • Sending/Receiving shielded messages
  • Installing and initially funding the wallet

Note: videos should be shorter than 10 minutes each, but can be longer if needed.

Bounty 2: Using Zen on MindGeek Websites (Bounty = 12 at 12 ZEN each)

:fire: Last Update – Bounty 2 is closed, with 12 valid entries paid. See comments below for current status of the bounties. :fire:

It is possible to send from a shielded address to a transparent address, which would be a good way to purchase online anonymously. One of the largest website networks, MindGeek, has recently accepted ZenCash as a method of payments on their popular websites, such as Brazzers and PornHubPremium.

In order to help people use ZenCash for payments, we are looking for you to create a blog post with infographics or a video on how to use ZenCash on any one of the following MindGeek websites:

The process can be a little tricky, and we want to show them how easy it is to use Zen to make purchases and secure their privacy.

:fire::fire: The first 12 people to submit a video or post with info-graphics will be awarded 12 ZEN. :fire::fire:

Bounty 3: Porting ZenCash Swing Wallet to Zcash (Bounty = Three at 120 ZEN each)

Inspired by my interactions at Zcon0, I would like for 1-3 people/teams to port the ZenCash Swing Wallet to Zcash. Looking for 3 versions of this – one each for PC, Mac, and Linux. Developed, packaged, and delivered like the ZenCash Swing wallet is with binaries from the current version of Zcash. For Mac, that means as a DMG, for PC, as a installable, and for Linux, as an APT package for Ubuntu.

Update – As a further clarification on how I would like the wallet made available:

:fire::fire: The first one for each OS of Linux, PC, and Mac that is fully working, published with latest Zcash Overwinter binaries, gets 120 ZEN. :fire::fire:

To qualify for a bounty – post your work in a public place, notify me on Twitter with a link. If you have questions, contact me on Discord or by email. I will ask for other people’s opinions on the work, and may ask for some small changes. The decision on awarding a bounty will be decided by me personally.
