Abstract: Electrum is a popular Bitcoin wallet, one of the first to have a basic GUI. It does not have the most attractive interface, but the code is believed to be solid and can serve as a base for building future wallet applications. Having a version of Electrum for Zcash would be bolster the ecosystem and potentially serve as a tool for other wallet builders.
The proposer is Mikael Johansson, who said that he’d be able to complete the basic t-address integration within a “few weeks,” while requesting up to five months (at a monthly rate of $2,000) for z-address integration. Since Sapling is so close and the spec is not quite ready, we feel that this proposal could move forward with funding for only t-address support and one month of the developer’s time.
