Newbie here asking for guidance on the fork process.
 
My BTC has been sitting in a cold wallet since before the snapshot occurred for Bitcoin Private (during Feb 2018)
 
Questions:
* When can I claim my free coin from this fork?
* Also, How do I claim this?
* Is BTCP going to be an important/major coin?

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and Bither are OK.)

* When can I claim my free coin from this fork?
You can claim it now if you want to and trade it on any exchange listed here.
* Also, How do I claim this?
You can claim it by transferring your bitcoins or zcl(if you will use zclassic's private key) first to another wallet. After that find any wallet that will suit your need here and install the wallet that you have picked and install it. After installing, import your private key. You can also follow this guide for a seamless private key import.

Not a bad idea to move your Bitcoin out to new address before you start claiming the fork.

Pretty much export your BTC private key then download the btcp wallet then import the BTC private key.
