Zcoin’s first halving is set to happen on block 302438 (approximately 24th September 2020) which also marks the end of Founders’ Rewards.

Find out the effects of halving and what’s next here: https://zcoin.io/zcoins-first-halving-approaches/

Hi,
The block number for the first ZCoin halving was originaly at block 305,000.
Now, I read on the website, the block number 302,438 : why ?
Even if the blocktime is not exactly 5 mn, why to choose a date (approximately september 24) and not a block number ?

Watch Reuben Yap of Zcoin $XZC talk about Zcoin’s upcoming Lelantus Protocol, and privacy in cryptocurrency on the
Digital Cash Network.

Reuben explains the main approaches to obfuscating transactions, from the decoy approach to the encryption approach (and hybrid models), and the different strengths and drawbacks of each. He also explains in detail the Lelantus protocol, Zcoin’s new privacy implementation, and how it can revolutionize the way financial transactions are kept confidential.
