Polling Opens for the December 2022 Zcash Community Grants Committee Election

Members of the Zcash Community Grants (ZCG) committee are elected by the Zcash Community Advisory Panel, and serve a one year term. Four committee members’ terms are expiring at the end of 2022 so, last month, we invited candidates to express their interest in serving on the committee. 

Eight candidates are standing for four seats on the committee. Here is the list of candidates, with links to their candidacy announcement on the Zcash community forum: 

Yesterday, six of the candidates took part in a community call, during which they introduced themselves and answered questions from the Zcash community. You can watch a recording of the call on Youtube.

Today, we opened a Helios poll of the Zcash Community Advisory Panel (ZCAP), which will run until 31st December. The poll will be decided by approval voting for four members out of the eight candidates. The results will be released on 1st January 2023, and the four candidates with the most approval votes will become the new ZCG committee members with immediate effect. 

ZCAP members should check their mailbox for instructions on how to vote. 

Good luck to all the candidates, and thank you for putting yourself forward to serve on the ZCG committee!
