Bitcoin Private uses the same privacy technology as ZClassic, and the payments are published on a public blockchain, but the sender, recipient and other transactional metadata remain unidentifiable. Just like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Private supports peer-to-peer transactions without an intermediary. Unlike Bitcoin, Bitcoin Private supports a slightly increased block size while being more anonymous and secure than any existing Bitcoin-based currency without sacrificing transaction speeds.

Quite recently Bitcoin Private has published the merchant platform roadmap, and you have a chance to have a look at it  below.

Bitcoin Private team reported that it didn’t initially expect to deliver a payment solution this soon, however, given how quickly business vendors across the world are beginning to accept BTCP as payment, they decided to expedite the internal planning and development process so that these vendors would have something safe and user friendly to use for now. The current ETA for phase 1 roll-out is Friday, April 13.

Further on, Bitcoin Private plans to signup a base of merchant vendors who will serve as beta users of their phase 1 merchant platform. Moreover, Bitcoin Private has assembled a partnerships team that works on signing up merchant vendors, onboarding them with the first version of our payment solution, and supporting them on any questions they may have.

Nchain underlines that the Nakasendo SDK is accessible for software programmers focusing their energy and resources relatively to bitcoin cash application and platform development.

Version 1.0 of the SDK focuses on providing a cryptographic library, to allow for a more flexible method of key generation and sharing. This cryptographic library can be used to improve security for any cryptocurrency exchange, and more broadly for controlling access to any type of digital asset or resource.

Nchain points out that the Nakasendo SDK will assist Nchain port software libraries that will help programmers in designing bitcoin cash apps. The SDK designed by Nchain is to navigate the complexities of blockchain growth, and strengthen work. The London firm declares that the SDK includes two patents from the company’s intellectual property portfolio.

Although the SDK libraries will be useful for developers on any blockchain or digital platform, we want to use key elements of nChain’s patent portfolio to help benefit the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem. That is why we are providing the SDK for free usage only for applications and products that operate on the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) blockchain. The SDK is one of many tools Nchain will use to ignite the BCH blockchain, and help re-invent the business world.
Jimmy Nguyen, Nchain Group, CEO

Currently, the 1.0 version of Nakasendo is only available to a determinate group of developers and teams that have been appointed in an initial testing pool. Nchain claims that the Nakasendo SDK will be made more accessible at a later date.
