April Fundraiser 2024

It’s surprising how time has flown since the first idea of setting up a Mastodon server for the community came up, to now having our server up for nearly a year and a half! I want to thank all the members of the Zeal Center for supporting decentralized digital spaces and I hope you are getting meaningful connections in the Fediverse.

I also want to remind everyone that we have a Mobilizon instance for the members of the Zeal Center at https://meet.zeal.center. This is a platform that allows members to create groups, plan and discuss events. It is also federated, which means anyone on the Fediverse can follow and interact with the groups and events. If you would like access to it, contact me.

Instance Funding

The Zeal Center wallet currently holds 0.58682605 ZEC, so is time to organize another fundraiser, our previous fundraiser was very successful and covered our costs for nearly 6 months.

If you have found meaningful conversations and new connections on the Fediverse, please consider donating what you can. Every zat counts and it would take about 15 ZEC at current prices to fund the server for the entire year of 2024.

Another great way to support the Zeal Center is to tell your friends about us and ask them to create an account for Mastodon, Mobilizon, or both! They can learn the basics of using a Zcash wallet and join the Fediverse and support decentralized platforms.

As a thank you, the Zeal Center members donating 1 ZEC or more during the fundraiser get their very own custom emoji1! This fundraising campaign will be open until 2024-05-07. You can scan the QR code below with your Zcash wallet to donate:
