What Is A Hard Fork?

A hard fork is when a single cryptocurrency splits in two. It occurs when a cryptocurrency’s existing code is changed, resulting in both an old and new version. This case is somewhat unique, whereby ZCL and BTC were co-forked into Bitcoin Private (BTCP).


When Was The Hard Fork?

Snapshot Date: February 28th, 2018.
Snapshot Blocks: 511346 for BTC and 272991 for ZCL.

Can I Claim My BTCP?

When the hard fork took place, a snapshot of all existing ZCL and BTC holdings occured. Anyone holding ZCL or BTC in a wallet or supported exchange has been credited Bitcoin Private (BTCP) at a 1:1 ratio. For example, if you held 15.4 ZCL and 0.1 BTC, you would  receive 15.5 BTCP.
