What is Blossom?

Blossom is the third network upgrade for Zcash.


Shorter Blocktimes
This feature increases the frequency of blocks (subject to further security and performance analysis), allowing transactions to resolve faster. This will improve Zcash’s usability and increase how many transactions per hour the network can sustain while keeping transaction fees low.

How do I upgrade?

These features are undergoing auditing and testing as part of the Blossom Network Upgrade Pipeline before release on the main network at the end of May. Stay tuned for future updates.
