ZenCash Update: Operation Radical Transparency

ZenCash Update…

2018 is going to be ‘The Year of Expansion,’ and we’re working as fast as we can to bring you new exchange listings, iOS apps, domain fronting, distributed file storage, and so much more. Below are the highlights touching on what’s to come.

Decentralized governance is part of ZenCash’s core model, and is a huge theme for 2018. We’re launching Operation Radical Transparency, but what does this mean?

  • All community spending will be publicly available on a portal, then aggregated into spending categories.
  • Roles and responsibilities: having the right people in the right role. 
  • Research & Development: a voting treasury system which is censorship resistant by applying game theory research for optimal voting mechanisms.
  • Large developer teams around the world working on projects in parallel, which will be shown on the new website (coming very soon).
  • Decentralized liquidity through more exchange listings.
  • DAG scalability study to upgrade blockchains and scale exponentially.

All ideas are being refined, and the project plans will be shared in the next coming weeks.

For more details watch co-founder, Rob Viglione, discuss decentralized governance at the Cryptocurrency World Expo in Warsaw 2017.

SECURE NODE PAYMENTS

Secure Node Payments have started, and we’re working our way through payments from December 15th, so expect yours soon. Please have patience as we work through the system. For a full update, view our blog post: Secure Node Beta Payment Update.

Over 5,000 secure nodes are registered! Keep track on our secure node tracking app.

 
 
TRELLO PUBLIC ROADMAP
 
We’ve added a Development Road Map board to our Trello account, and it’s completely public. As part of Operation Radical Transparency, we want the Zen community members to know exactly what we’re working on, and how quickly everything is progressing.
 
 
The rebranding and new website design is our top priority. Above is a sneak peak of the website, and we’re working around the clock to have it ready soon. 

The secure node banner ads are live for another three weeks, and are performing extremely well. Our brand awareness ads are also performing well, and we will continue to promote a new ad each week. 

Our Facebook and Twitter pages are growing – we have more than 13,000 Twitter followers and we’re gaining about 1,000 each week. Help us by liking our pages, sharing and mentioning @zencash.

For all marketing analytics and ad results, please view the community call [1:11:44].

Narrative launches the first blockchain based social network that puts revenue in your pocket, not Mark Zuckerberg’s

Narrative is launching the world’s first content economy, where creators, moderators and influencers contribute content, monitor the community, and receive the revenue they help create

Gibraltar – November 2017 Narrative Ltd. is announcing the launch of its new content and social networking platform, in which community members make the rules and reap the benefits of their contributions. The Narrative project includes some of the team from Social Strata, the company behind customer engagement applications such as Hoop.la. They are developing Narrative in order to give users the power to control the social network they help create.

Today, social networks are run by monolithic corporations. These companies are the ones who make the decisions about the content posted on their network, and they pocket the revenues from the network’s activity. With Narrative, users are truly in control of the communities they help create. Narrative gives its user community an unprecedented level of control: they elect their own moderators, elect a “tribunal” that functions like a Supreme Court, and even decide which ads run on the platform. Content management on Narrative is performed by moderators who are elected by the users themselves, and all actions on the network are completely transparent. Through this system of content ratings and user reputation, Narrative minimizes the impact of “bad eggs” in the community.

Narrative’s value is represented by cryptocurrency, and based on the Ethereum blockchain. However, users don’t need to know anything about cryptocurrencies in order to take part, and can even choose to receive rewards in fiat currency, rather than in existing tokens. Users earn money from any kind of contribution to the platform: writing posts and comments, posting images, and monitoring content.

Blockchain allows the system to collect and distribute revenue with complete transparency. The value in the associated cryptocurrency also allows the network to be instantly funded, so that users are paid for their efforts, even while the network is in its infancy.

Narrative’s platform includes three channels:

  • A personal journal where writers create their own content and write to their heart’s content, either for themselves or for their readers
  • Niches where users create content and participate in discussions, separated according to topic
  • Brands where organizations create discussions, and where the brand owners decide who can post content

Narrative will hold an ICO for its NRV token on December 7, 2017, with Early Bird and presale phases prior to the official sale. Narrative has capped the ICO at 100 million tokens.

“Narrative is the world’s journal, where users post content in an ecosystem that they control,” says Ted O’Neill, Founder of Narrative and Social Strata. “We’re creating a content economy, where creators, moderators, and everyone who positively influences the network gets rewarded.”
