In order to facilitate the widespread use of zcash; a short term concern that is often voiced is the size of the number of transactions in the anonymity set (the zeal). As a proposed solution, utilizing the memo field as a messaging platform will provide an increase in use of shielded transactions as well as providing a needed service.
This proposal is to create an open source communication platform using electron and react js. The solution will allow users to connect to a zcash node, send and receive messages using z-memos, and store an address book for contacts. The solution will be accompanied with a public website for distribution and documentation. At the conclusion of the project, the solution and all ip will be donated to the foundation.
