Zcash (ZEC) Blossom Upgrade To Improve Speed, Scalability and Capacity

Mining News

Zcash Blossom is the next major network upgrade of Zcash (ZEC) scheduled to activate today at block height 653600 in a couple of hours. This mandatory network upgrade is designed to improve the network scalability and user experience by cutting block times in half (to about 75 seconds), making transaction confirmations faster, doubling network throughput and keeping transaction fees low. To keep the ZEC coin emission rate and halvening schedule of Zcash unchanged, the halved block times also require that the per-block reward be halved as well. The emission rate per time, however, remains unchanged. Other values based on block intervals will also be updated accordingly, such as end-of-service halt, default transaction expiry, and the number of confirmations required to consider a transaction final.

  1. First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head
    before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Appreciate it!
