What is Bitcoin private?
Bitcoin private is a hard fork of BTC and ZCL. BTCP will have the same privacy technology as ZCL (zk-snarks). This means payments are published on a public blockchain, but the sender, recipient, and amount of a transaction remain private. Furthermore, BTCP will have 4-6 times faster transaction times and significantly lower fees than BTC.

Who is running the project?
Rhett is the lead developer. CryptoJake22 is the Operations Lead. Overall, our contribution team is huge. This is a truly community driven project and we are all invested in making this fork happen and BTCP the future.

When is the hard fork date?
The exact date of the hard fork has not been announced yet.

How will BTCP be distributed?
If you have 1 ZCL, you keep 1 ZCL and get 1 BTCP, if you have 1 BTC, you keep your BTC and get 1 BTCP.

What is going to happen to ZCL after the hard fork?
It will still exist, though we are unsure how its development will continue as of right now.

Is there a premine or a founder's reward?
No to premine. We asked the community about a small founder's reward and the support was not overwhelming.

What exchanges will support the fork?
As of right now, no exchange has announced fork support. Generally, they will not even discuss fork support until after the fork date is announced/confirmed. Please be patient as we work on the fork and begin discussions with exchanges post fork date announcement.

Where can I store my ZCL to ensure I get my BTCP?
We have recently released a new beta wallet which you can find here. We recognize this wallet may not work for everyone still and are working on multiple other platforms to be released before the fork. A paper wallet was also released recently and can be used to obtain your BTCP, though you will be unable to get your ZCL out of the paper wallet unless you have a working desktop wallet.

How do I mine ZCL?
There is a guide for mining ZCL on miningpoolhub here.

How do I get involved in the fork?
Please reach out to us on reddit, twitter, discord, or telegram. Also, see the issues posted on github that we need resolved for BTCP. There are a few bounties for them too.

Where can I buy ZCL right now?
Bittrex, Cryptopia, and Coinexchange.io

How do I claim my BTCP from ZCL?
More information on this is forthcoming. Please be patient.

How many BTCP will there be after the fork?
There are 3 million ZCL and 16.7 million BTC, so there will be 19.7 million BTCP after the fork.

Can I donate to the team?
Yes you can! See the donation addresses below the links.

I got a little late, it's still possible to buy ZCL and switch to BTCP, right? Updating ZClassic was one of the things expected by many people, I'll be watching! BTCP will have the advantage of being already on Bittrex.

How will BTCP be distributed?
If you have 1 ZCL, you keep 1 ZCL and get 1 BTCP, if you have 1 BTC, you keep your BTC and get 1 BTCP.


Combining the BTC ledger with an existing blockchain to do like a double fork merger is really a brilliant idea. Has any other project done this before? Now ZCL essentially becomes BTCP futures.

Need to address this quick please. Im sure others are dying to see whats going to happen to ZCL

Also, can you guys stop saying "check this and that on site X or B" and just link the guide? A lot of confusion lately regarding ZCL and BTCP reddit.

if "1 btc : 1 btcp, 1 zcl : 1 btcp,"  It makes more sense to keep zcl. So i will zcl HOLD!  Like a better fork than the others. when the snapshot is to be announced?

So half the coins go to ZClassic holders and the other half go to bitcoin holders? That explains the $21277000 ZClassic volume on bittrex today.

Not quite. 1.8 million ZCL and 16.5 Million BTC so a lot more BTCP will end up in the hands of BTC owners than ZCL owners. The price went up because its a lot cheaper to buy ZCL than BTC so from a cost benefit perspective, ZCL is the cheapest way to get BTCP when the fork occurs

Definitely, the price exploded days ago from 4 usd to over 118 USD, then whales try to manipulate the price, with success in order to buy more for themselves, so now it´s time to HODL this coin, as the BTCP will be worth at least 345 USD at the moment of fork, now we need to spread the word and collaborate to this project, exchanges will be forced to have it listed as all btc holders will have same value in this coin also!

OK I understand now, I assumed both ZClassic and bitcoin had roughly the same number of coins in circulation, but didn't realize ZClassic has a much lower circulating supply.

BTCP will be worth more than BTG. BTCP is everything BTG wanted to be, but they had no developers.
