The ShadowCash team have stopped working on the Shadow Project.
They are now working on a new and improved project called Particl. Read the official announcement and follow Particl blog for more info.



Shadow is an Open Source project which is created almost entirely by volunteers. There are lots of ways you can get involved and help the project grow and improve. Here are some ways for you to get started!

Know how to code? Help us!

The Shadow project is hosted over on GitHub. This is where our developers work hard on the next version(s) of the software. To get involved with developing Shadow, check out our detailed contributing guidelines. We credit all contributors to the Shadow project in every major and minor release.

We hold public development meetings and chat in our Slack team (get an invite and join our chat). We also maintain a public roadmap and dev blog to give you an idea of what's being worked on right now, and what's coming next.

We're currently looking for lead contributors in the following roles:

  • Translations
  • Documentation

Do you know someone who might be interested? Do not hesitate and contact us directly.

If they haven't, click here to open a new issue, and fill out the template with as much information as possible. The more you can tell us about the problem and how it occurred, the more likely we are to fix it. Please check out our bug and bounty program for our guidelines and more details.

Please do not report security vulnerabilities publicly.


We are a non-profit and Open Source software project and are trying to build a private economy. We appreciate all the help we can get in making this a reality. Both addresses are managed by Rynomster (lead developer). If applicable, please specify whether you want to remain anonymous. Many thanks to all our sponsors!
