June 2022 ZCAP Expansion

We previously announced a plan to expand the Zcash Community Advisory Panel (ZCAP) ahead of the upcoming Zcash Community Grants (ZCG) committee election. Following this expansion, the panel now consists of 140 people (listed below), including 34 new members. 

There were several nominations that missed the deadline (three), or where vetting is not yet complete (two). We expect to add these nominees to ZCAP after the election is complete.

In two cases, vetting raised questions or concerns that resulted in the nomination being rejected. In both cases, the ZCAP member who made the nomination agreed with the decision to reject their nominee. 

We are committed to continuing to expand ZCAP, and to making it more independent and representative of the Zcash community. We invite community members to share their ideas and suggestions for how we can best achieve this.  

Please note that, as of September 2022, the current list of ZCAP members can be found here
