As the market turns to red once again, Bitcoin Private trades lower, and ZClassic loses all relevance.
Bitcoin Private (BTCP) was off to a rough start on the Nanex exchange, as its price lost more than 33% overnight to around $53. The Bitcoin fork, which at one point was seen hitting $500, was hurt by being listed on a still brand-new, low-volume exchange. Reaching a higher price would be a struggle, and BTCP did not even manage the Bitcoin Gold (BTG) achievement of a price near $500.
At the same time, ZClassic (ZCL) turned out to be an abandoned project, more or less left to the community to revive and find a new direction, if there are any takers. Nodes run by the team will have a planned shutdown in April, and will be turned over to the community. This also means that until a new team takes up the coin with a new strategy, ZCL remains a zombie blockchain and asset, moving forward and trading blindly.
