ZconV FAQs

What is Zcon?

Zcon is an annual conference the Zcash Foundation organizes, with a focus on Zcash and privacy-preserving technologies. 

This year’s theme is Zcash: Unified, which will be focused on key community-driven topics inspired by conversations that have surfaced across the Community over the past year. 

The Zcash Community is already strongly unified around the profound value and fundamental necessity of privacy and decentralization. We are unwavering in our commitment to move the protocol forward and know that working together is the best way to bring Zcash into the future.

ZconV is an opportunity for these overarching convictions to guide us as we dare to have bold, respectful, vital discussions about the future and direction of Zcash. ZconV offers an opportunity to shed more light on what we as a Community can expect between now and a Dev Fund decision, how we can unify around current and future work, and what the future of Zcash might look like in this context.

When and where is ZconV?

ZconV will be held virtually May 6-10th, 2024 so everyone in the community can actively participate in important discussions before the current Dev Fund ends.
