One of the developers of software for Windows-wallet of ZCash threatened to implement the hardfork of this crypto, if he will not be compensated. This is reported by CoinDesk.
According to Jane Mercer, last year he worked on a voluntary basis and lived for donations, and sometimes he had to work for free. After he ran out of funds, he decided to resort to threats to end his activities and "split" the network.
The Zcash community did not ignore this incident, and for a short period, Mercer's wallet received several anonymous transactions amounting to 80 ZEC (about $ 15,000). According to the developer, with threats he wanted to express his disappointment.
As reported, if Mercer stopped developing software for the ZCash wallet, which is installed in tens or even hundreds of thousands of users, customers couldn't use it after the upcoming network updates.
I finally got one of the Zcash Foundation board members on the phone, and he managed to talk me back from the ledge from chain fork threats and fun things like that. I'm all calmed down, everything is happy now, I hate altcoin drama and it's the only time I have stirred it up deliberately in my life.
Developer, Zcash Foundation
Overwinter update for Zcash is planned for 25th of June.
