The latest upgrade, i.e., v 0.7.1 of ZEC Wallet is now equipped with a feature called “fast sync”. This mode will allow a faster downloading for the initial blockchain. Fast sync is now also enabled by default in the new wallet and syncs the Zcash blockchain. According to the Zcash Team, the feature will enhance the speed by up to 33%. Additionally, the foundation has given a sneak peek of the experimental Rustlang version of the Iden3 ZK-Snark compiler. It can be used now to generate proofs and smart contracts. Although a lot of work is needed to be done, it is like a small step toward the beta version.
