Motivation and Overview

This is a community-driven news program where viewers can earn Zcash!

It features up-to-date video tutorials about how to use Zcash securely, including education on Zcash governance and protocol upgrades versus other technologies.

1. Discover ZEC

We curate news from a variety of sources to create concise notes, audio clips and visual content that ultimately makes the Zcash Community more discoverable online.

2. Discuss ZEC

Anonymizing avatars available on modern smartphones welcome new audiences into our discussions as we promote the stuff we find in the evergreen Zcash Community.

3. Use ZEC Daily

Hosting show notes and “content contests” on ZECpages helps onboard new Zcash users every week and grow the shielded pool

Technical approach

1. Recursive
  • Every week, we reward last week's contributors with Zcash
2. Accountable
  • Clear deliverables are published for the world to read, hear and see every week as our show deciphers Zcash
3. Composable
  • Our storyboard is constructed in segments that can be redistributed by our viewers throughout the week

Our Show's Composable Operating Model:

Execution risks & Downsides

We think that earning a set amount of Zcash every week is critical to the long-term success of this project.

Evaluation plan

Our Production Schedule summarizes the deliverables denoted in "What" each Role is Responsible for

Tasks and schedule

  • One episode of our show will be released every week for one year or 52 weeks.
  • Each episode of our show is 10-20 minutes long.
  • We aim to publish and promote the first episode of our show 28 days after the project is initiated, max.
  • Delivery dates by role are can be found in Payments Section

"When" denotes weekly or one-time due dates under each of the Roles and Responsibilities. This is summarized in our Production Schedule

Budget and justification

Payments are all-inclusive (time, labor, tools, etc.) and disbursed to team members by the Editor on a transparent and weekly basis when our show is published to YouTube (video) and ZECpages (show notes) as detailed by weekly milestones.

Under each Role and Responsibility we list "What" we "Pay" for, then summarize Payments

Z. Cash Incentive Bonuses motivate the team to conduct a consistent and continuously-improving show for weeks to come.
