Bitcoin Private (BTCP) was born from a fork of Bitcoin (BTC) and ZClassic (ZCL). Now, it has been listed on HitBTC. This move is extremely significant for the BTCP community which has tried so hard to communicate the existence of that cryptocurrency.
HitBTC is the 12th most important virtual currency exchange in the crypto market with a trading volume of $344.84 million dollars. The most important trading pairs offered by the exchange are BCH/BTC, BTC/USDT, and ETH/BTC, accounting for almost 50% of the aggregate trading volume of it.
On May 3, the announcement has been made by HitBTC reads as follow:
“Bitcoin private ($BTCP), a community-driven BTC/ZCL fork consisting of over 150 contributors, is now listed on #HitBTC. We would like to thank all the $BTCP community for your support, vigilance and team spirit.”
At the same time, HitBTC conducted an interview with the team of BTCP, which has been published on HitBTC’s blog a short time after the announcement of the listing.
Bitcoin Private’s team stated:
“What sets Bitcoin Private aside from other Bitcoin forks is that it is the first to bring mathematically provable privacy technology to the Bitcoin community. Another big differentiator, when compared to other Bitcoin forks that are often times overlooked, is that of the open source development community itself. The BTCP team has by far the most active development team among any of the Bitcoin forks, and in just under 60 days after the mainnet launch it has already proven to be the only Bitcoin fork dedicated to bringing the best privacy technology to a mainstream adoption level.”
Bitcoin Private is a privacy-focused Bitcoin. It is a fork of ZClassic (ZCL), combining the Unspent Transaction Output (UXTO) of ZCL with that of Bitcoin (BTC). On February 28, the snapshot of both ZClassic and Bitcoin was taken, and holders of each currency were eligible for Bitcoin Private (BTCP) virtual coins at a ratio 1:1.
