About this Episode

TODAY'S 🎙SHOW: Douglas Tuman checks in with Vik Sharma, founder of Cakewallet to discuss the controversial news that dropped this week that they obtained a grant from the zcash foundation to add zcash to cake.

Cake received blowback from the Monero community and reacted by pivoting and announcing Cake wallet will now develop 3 wallets. Cake original, which will continue to evolve down its multi-coin pro-privacy path, a separate zcash wallet, and most exciting a separate Monero wallet for Monero purists which they will be focusing on first and hope to launch in the next few months.

We will continue to recommend Cake Wallet who sponsors this show, as they have yet again showed a devotion to building tools and services for Monero purists like us.
