Zcash Improvement Proposals (ZIPs)¶
What are ZIPs?¶
Zcash Improvement Proposals (ZIPs) are the way to:
- propose new features and their rationale,
- specify the implementation details of the feature,
- collect community input on the proposal, and
- document design decisions.
The author(s) of the ZIP are responsible for building consensus within the community and documenting/addressing dissenting opinions.
Anyone can write a ZIP! We encourage community contributions and decentralization of work on the Zcash protocol. If you’d like to bounce ideas before formally writing a ZIP, we encourage it! Visit the community dischord channel to talk about your idea.
