The Zel Team Announces holiday “Give back to the community.” Encouraging users to enable decentralized two-factor (d2FA) authentication and secure their blockchain assets!

To celebrate Christmas and the fantastic work we have accomplished this year, the Zel team will be sending enough Zel to enable d2fa on every ZelCore wallet users we have. That is well over 165k users! We believe in protecting yourself, and this is an excellent way to get some Zel into the community’s hands! Check out Goose’s video below explaining all the good bits!

We will also be giving away 2,500 Zel each day from December 26th to 31th, and on New Years Day, we will give away 10,000 Zel, enough for setting up a fresh Basic ZelNode!

The Zel Team is excited to announce that we are officially launching our Community Incentives Program. It’s time to “mine with your mind” and earn $Zel for community contributions of new and unique content.

VeriBlock has chosen ZelCore to become the world’s first commercial wallet to integrate its Proof-of-Proof (“PoP”) mining technology. Starting today, ZelCore Wallet’s 150,000+ users can earn VeriBlock ($VBK) coins for participating in PoP mining on the VeriBlock Security Network whenever they send Bitcoin transactions. VeriBlock now joins Bitcoin ($BTC), Ethereum ($ETH), Bitcoin Cash ($BCH), and other notable projects as a default asset in the ZelCore Wallet. In celebration of this partnership, 1.5 million VBK have been donated to ZelCore which they have chosen to share with the first 15,000 users who upgrade their wallets before December 21st.

“The nature of market economics dictate that Proof-of-Proof mining would inevitably be integrated into wallets and help subsidize Bitcoin transaction fees,” noted Justin Fisher, Co-Founder and CEO of VeriBlock, Inc. and Director of Xenios SEZC. “We knew ZelCore was the perfect partner to showcase this amazing technology because they understood the economics of PoP immediately and are incredibly passionate about bringing new innovative technologies to their community.” …

Zel utilizes zero-knowledge proofs (ZK-SNARKS), a privacy protocol that was created in the 1980’s by MIT researchers. Zel is a finite asset, which is distributed via a block reward. …
