2. Powers of Tau Ceremony

The Powers of Tau ceremony proceeds in turns, one turn for each participant. You can think of this process as a bit like shuffling a deck of cards in public. Each participant shuffles the deck, proves that they did not modify or add any of the cards, and then hands the deck to the next participant.

3. Zcash Conference

4. Delegated Proving

Nano S has 320 Kb flash, 10 Kb RAM, Blue has 480 Kb flash, 12 Kb RAM (less available for applications after the OS is installed)

The idea is that a computationally weak party can offload the heavy proof generation for a shielded transaction to a computationally strong party.

5. Zcash Foundation Grant Awards
