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.

The security tokens platform tZERO announced plans to launch a mobile application for buying and selling bitcoin. In the future, the application may also begin to support Ethereum,  CoinDesk reports.

According to Saum Noursalehi, CEO of tZERO, applications for iOS and Android devices should be launched in June. Bitsy is developing it, a cryptocurrency start-up that is part of the portfolio of the Overstock venture division of Medici Ventures.

That’s part of the reason we acquired Bitsy — to accelerate time to market for our mobile app. They have an app for trading crypto, primarily bitcoin, in a beta-phase, they built a wallet and key recovery mechanism, and this will be the foundation of the mobile app for tZERO. They are also working on some cool stuff like biometric login.

According to him, the application will allow you to store cryptocurrency without the need to trust third parties and it will be connected to the network of exchanges through the API. The implementation of this plan will occur through partner tZERO, the institutional trading platform SFox.

In the future, the head of tZERO added, the platform also intends to create its own cryptocurrency vault to meet the demand from users.

The public beta testing of Bitsy wallet started in November 2018. With his help, the Overstock retailer plans to launch Bitcoin sales on its website.
