SO, we now have bitcoin gold, diamond, private, cash.

Starting to look more like a lame pokemon series than a disruptive technology that changes the world. Sick of this rebranding for recognition shit, how is this better than what verge offers? other than the fact that you get to say “bitcoin” when you talk about zclassic fork?

Further, Mimblewimble will also do this for the actual btc once they get it all worked out. The bitcoin team works slowly, but they make damn sure the coin is secure before moving into another layer.

According to BitcoinPrivate’s website, the Snapshot date is 2/28, but the Fork date is approximately 2 days later?

What is the difference? When can we safely get rid of our ZCL and not miss out on the BTCP? After the snapshot, or after the fork?


#23

I always loved the idea of anonymity going back to egold days, but the reality is the platforms or coins that specifically market themselves this way will be the ones that will receive the most attention by the authorities they are trying to make themselves anonymous FROM, and will be the first targeted in regulatory focus. Guaranteed.


#24

ZCL be like “All I want to know is who’s coming with me, who’s coming man who’s coming with me man!!!”


#25

So with BTCP on the horizon what do you think will happen to BitcoinZ and other privacy coins? I’m a hodler or BitcoinZ but concerned that it will be obsolete soon.


#26

As crypto becomes maintream i think privacy coins will be in hi demand. Some not all :rocket::100: xmr zec defo good shouts even Dash. Hope you toped up in the dip


#27

Privacy coins will be like Catch me if you can lol


#28

#29

So is it better to store my BTC on another wallet until after the snapshot? There are on a ledger nano s now


#30

I’m curious about this too. Mine are on Trezor. I’m guessing if the BTCP is really valuable coin then Trezor (or KevinvdV in your case Ledger) will give instructions how to claim ours, as they’ve done in the past with Bcash, BTG, etc?


#31

The fork is tomorrow, and yet still hardly any support anywhere. The price seems to be reflecting that.

I’d love to have my ZCL on an exchange so that I can dump it the second the fork is completed, however the only exchanges supporting it at the moment are HITBTC and some other one I’ve never even heard of. Sketch. :frowning:

Any ideas?


#32

Kucoin should be giving our BTCP’s within couple days :wink:


#33

got em!!! all BTCP added to acct, now just waiting for BTCP markets to open :slight_smile:


#34

How much did the holders get? I missed out on this :frowning:


#35

I just imported my Electrum ZCL keys into the new Electrum BTCP wallet, and claimed my BTCP. Was pretty easy. :slight_smile:

Anyway, just saw your post, and am a bit behind on this. Where will we be able to sell? I have accounts at Binance, Bittrex, and Cryptopia. Any chance any of those will be supported?


#36

1 BTCP per ZCL or BTC.

So if you had 15 ZCL and 0.5 BTC, you’d get 15.5 BTCP.


#37

yup 1 BTCP per BTC/ZCL

they are trading for about $300 right now… and reached about $850 about an hour ago. I’m fully dumped. I still like BTCP and want to buy back in tho


#38

How are you seeing a value for BTCP? Are you looking on Kucoin? Mine still shows BTCP with a Zero dollar value. I don’t see any BTC-BTCP trading pairs or ETH-BTCP trading pairs.


#39

Love this coin combo, makes for a remarkable upgrade.
