Why Bitcoin Private?

Private - 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.

Decentralized - Just like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Private will support peer-to-peer transactions without an intermediary. These transactions will be verified by network nodes through the use of cryptography and recorded in a public ledger.

Fast - Unlike Bitcoin, Bitcoin Private will support a slightly increased block size while being more anonymous and secure than any existing Bitcoin-based currency without sacrificing transaction speeds.

Open Source - Bitcoin Private's entire codebase is publicly available for viewing and verification by anyone. It will always remain open source and be maintained by an ever growing community.

Community Driven - In the nature of transparency and open source, Bitcoin Private is developed by team members all over the world. Each member fills roles and contributes based on his or her skill sets.

A Fair Start - There will be no premine, and no founder's reward. Bitcoin Private will be released in a fair manner to all. Coins will be distributed on a 1:1 basis to BTC and ZCL holders.
