ZenCash, the privacy coin for borderless, decentralized communications and transactions, has announced that it has partnered with Infopulse, an international software research, and development company, to collaborate on key research and development projects on the Zen blockchain. The companies’ first joint project will be the development of a treasury voting system that will enable ZenCash holders to make decisions on community proposals.
The voting system will give the Zen community an active role in the network’s development and offer transparency into the allocation of funds.
The ZenCash platform’s protocol-level treasury voting system will help to improve community participation in decision-making for the network. Under the model, proposals are placed in a system, where ideas can be submitted by anyone and voted upon by ZenCash holders. The companies are currently stress-testing a prototype of the treasury model, with active voters participating in theoretical proposals. Infopulse will assist ZenCash in the development implementation of various critical projects such as scaling protocols, domain fronting, and distributed file storage.
The collaboration with Infopulse builds on a partnership between ZenCash and leading blockchain engineering company IOHK. ZenCash and Infopulse plan to implement a custom model of IOHK’s reference treasury model, which IOHK has been developing in collaboration with Professor Bingsheng Zhang from Lancaster University.
