Our Vision for Zoin
We envision Zoin to be a currency that one can actually use to buy things.
Not just a speculative asset in a portfolio, not just something you’ve got lying around for your financial security, but rather something you are using on a daily basis, whether it is to order something online, or to buy something in your local grocery store – we want you to be able to do all that with Zoin!
One of the main points that set Zoin apart from other coins is our community governance. We don’t want to develop a cryptocurrency for or by ourselves. We want to develop it FOR and WITH YOU! This is why all major decisions will continue to be taken by the community of Zoin.
But we don’t want to stop there. We want to integrate you even more into the development progress of Zoin. That’s why we want to encourage you to approach us with new ideas or general ways to improve Zoin and its surroundings, as well as every single bug you find.
This will help us in making the cryptocurrency we all want.
We strongly believe that Zoin has got a solid foundation developed by the previous team. We want to continue that path along with defining a global strategy to increase the visibility of Zoin.
Development-wise we want to finalize Android and iOS mobile wallets so that the Zoin community can store their coins in additional safe places. Shared Masternode service will be an important step to make every investor even more proud to hold Zoin. Update to BTC Core 0.16 is also planned, which will enable us to benefit from the latest performance improvements in order to make Zoin transactions faster and even more secure, as well the addition of Zoin with the Sigma Protocol. As a continuation from the previous team, voting from wallets will be finalized and implemented so that you can participate and be the main decision maker in the future of Zoin.
One of our main points of focus as a team will be to promote Zoin to increase its visibility across the entire crypto community. For that, we will also need to enhance Zoins usability by integrating it into real world use cases.
Developing a WordPress plugin enabling eCommerce sites to propose Zoin as a mean of payments will expand the use of Zoin. Also, we want to implement instant payment through QR codes in mobile wallets. We have the strong believe that we can further develop Zoin for the e-shops sector and individual micro-payments. These two cases will be the foundation to increase the usability of Zoin and expand our reach to new horizons. We are additionally looking into making Zoin a legal entity (e.g. a foundation) to easify exchange listings and other partnerships.
We want to thank you again for your support, this community is amazing and very insightful. That’s why, we will open a channel in Discord where every member can leave an idea or an insight for the roadmap. We will collect them and make a poll for you to choose which item(s) from the community you want us to add to the roadmap.
During the next week(s) we will update the website with the new roadmap and team, and also work with the old team to get everything transitioned over to us. We are also already working on a fix for the Zerocoin problem.
Thanks again, we hope to work together with you all to make Zoin the best project in the crypto sphere.
