Zclassic developers plans to fork Bitcoin to create Bitcoin Private, a privacy-focused Bitcoin that mashes up the features of Bitcoin Gold and Zcash/Zclassic. Bitcoin Private will use the same privacy technology as ZClassic (zk-snarks). This means payments are published on a public blockchain, but the sender, recipient and other transactional metadata remain unidentifiable.
Zclassic holders and Bitcoin Holders will get Bitcoin Private (BTCP). Anyone holding ZCL or BTC in a wallet or supported exchange will be credited Bitcoin Private (BTCP) at a 1:1 ratio. For example, if you hold 15.4 ZCL and 0.1 BTC, you will receive 15.5 BTCP.
Snapshot date: February 28th, 2018. No snapshot block height has been announced yet.
Fork Date & Main Net Launch: Approximately 2 days later.
