Zen developers have made good progress this week in identifying, fixing, and testing the ZenCash Zen node software to address the issues that were discovered last week before the planned launch.
We are planning to go live with the Zen blockchain at 2359 UTC on Tuesday, May 30, which is also 7:59 pm eastern time in USA. There are many people that are working very hard through the holiday weekend to make this happen.
As the work progresses, quality assurance testing is done, and different types of transactions are made on the testnet, there may be some other issues that come up that need to be addressed as well. In a software project, sometimes changing one part affects others. This is not something that can be predicted, nor rushed.
The priority is security and usability of the Zen blockchain. There are 1,375,000 Zen tokens that will come into existence, and the team needs to be able to make certain the system is stable and secure before exchange trading can take place.
As we get closer to launch tomorrow, members of the Zen team will provide updates to the community.
Zen is a system of products, services, and businesses built around an enabling technology stack employing zero-knowledge proofs and a core set of beliefs.
As a distributed blockchain system leveraging the latest censorship-evading techniques, fully encrypted communications, and a social and governance model designed for long term viability, Zen will contribute to the human right to privacy and provide the necessary networking infrastructure for people to securely collaborate within a borderless ecosystem.
The launch of ZenCash is scheduled to take place on May 30th at 2359 UTC.
