In the Foundation’s engineering roadmap for 2020, we overviewed our plans for Zebra, our Rust implementation of Zcash. Announced last summer at Zcon1, Zebra aims to support the core strength of Zcash – its best-in-class cryptography – by placing it on a solid foundation, providing a modern, modular implementation that can be broken into components and used in many different contexts. In that post, we briefly described the new network stack we designed and implemented for Zebra. As a fork of Bitcoin, Zcash inherited Bitcoin’s network protocol; in this post, we’ll do a deep dive on Zebra’s network stack.
