Parity launches alpha version of alternative Zcash (ZEC) client

The release of Zebra marks the fourth major public network client implementation delivered by Parity. Zebra will be primarily maintained by the Zcash Foundation going forward.



First announced back in March, today marks the alpha release of Zebra, the first Zcash (ZEC) client written entirely in Rust. Tasked by the Zcash Foundation to create a new alternative client to zcashd, Parity Technologies completed the initial implementation of a new Zcash client two months ahead of schedule.

The Zebra client offers the Zcash community an independent alternative to the zcashd client.

Parity’s experience in building blockchain clients fused with the Zcash Foundation’s expertise in cryptography and zero-knowledge proofs. Both teams reported gaining new knowledge and skills, while providing the Zcash community with a multi-client ecosystem.

“During our work on this Zcash client at Parity, we’ve gained insight and expertise into what it takes to build a Zcash client, while laying the foundations for a future Polkadotbridge. At the same time, the Zcash Foundation has been able to quickly kickstart a client implementation, creating a useful, competitive alternative to zcashd. The community wins across the board, as there are now more core developers working on clients, with more interests represented and clients taking different approaches on how to build apps on top. Zcash can now boast a more diversified community that can effectively tailor experiences for Layer 2 developers as well as end-users.”

– Parity Technologies CTO, Fredrik Harryson

Alternative client implementations help developers quickly detect implementation-specific bugs that could cause consensus-related issues. Multiple client implementations also attract a broader audience of developers, who can start contributing in a language they’re familiar with. Zebra allows Rust developers to easily start hacking on and contributing to Zcash.

Open-source and licensed under GPL v3.0, Zebra has already been handed over to the Zcash Foundation’s Github repo where it will continue to be developed into a full-featured Zcash client.

Zebra was derived from Parity Bitcoin, which led to a quick turnover and fast roadmap after the announcement of the partnership several months ago.

With Zebra, users, developers and miners have a new avenue to engage with the Zcash ecosystem. Check out the documentation within the Zebra repo, which will continue to be updated regarding new features added by the Zcash Foundation.

I think it is still in the development stage because Zcash and Bitcoin are different and the way it works is different, only Zebra still has a system that mimics Zcash and Bitcoin.
If only this Zebra had a BUG and could not track mining for Zcash, it could be said that Zebra was still less productive.

The main thing in this whole situation is that the Zcash team does not cease to develop the project and does what will make Zcash more popular and famous. I think this project is undervalued and has a high growth potential, although the team and the community still have a lot to do to develop the project.

The project is really undervalued, but the team and the Zcash community are constantly working on improvements and they have funds for this. This is an advantage of Zcash over other projects, because not all project teams have sufficient funding for their activities because of what the project suffers as a whole.

Parity is very smart to look for opportunities from all the sciences that Zcash has.
I am sure Parity has a development team that understands how the Zcash system works and this is also the best way for Zcash to increase its community rating from Parity.
