This is our fortnightly community and communications update; last week’s engineering update is available here.

This week we published the first Electric Coin Company quarterly newsletter, which includes information about some recent milestones.

Speaking of milestones, we’re kicking off a new initiative—quarterly livestream broadcasts! Mark your calendar for the first one, taking place on March 28th at 5PM MT. Join the chat, submit your questions! Additional details and an invite link will be shared out via Twitter closer to the date.

From the blog

Last week we profiled Eirik Ogilvie-Wigley in our series about People Behind Zcash Technology, exploring his engineering role and ongoing commitment to Zcash. Learn about the serendipitous encounter at a coffee shop that lead him to join the Electric Coin Company.
