Bitcoin Private (BTCP) is a cryptocurrency with the optional ability to keep the sender, receiver, and amount private in a given transaction. This is in contrast to many cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, which have a fully transparent transaction history. Bitcoin Private gives users the option to generate either public or private addresses, redeemable for transactions to either address type. Bitcoin Private uses the mining algorithm Equihash, similarly to Zclassic and Zcash. Also similar to the formerly mentioned, at its core Bitcoin Private is a privacy oriented cryptocurrency, built around the privacy protocol zk-SNARKs, a zero-knowledge proofs method highly regarded for its security. Additionally Bitcoin Private focuses heavily on being a community project, so much so as deriving its name from a Twitter poll, and eventually attracting hundreds of community members to help on the project. Bitcoin Private is a merge fork of Bitcoin and Zclassic.
