The last time there was a discussion about ZClassic, the subject started out with “Whatever happened to ZCL?” ZCL might well have been dead since there was no appropriate media coverage to pave the way for ZCL towards the next stage of its development that could potentially take place before the end of 2018. What is certain for now is that ZCL is anything but dead due to a team called the ZClassic Community Edition. A new proposal on the behalf of the ZClassic CE has been submitted to the team behind BTPC, so let’s see where the status of the proposal currently stands at.
ZClassic Community Edition team
In the lack of a dev team for the neglected ZClassic, a new ZCL team emerged due to the necessity of a new dev team. The new team behind this crypto is called the ZClassic Community Edition, which more or less depicts that the core team members of ZCL are actually end-users and developers that have been by the side of ZCL since the very beginning.
The team is said to have been working on improving the ZCL system alongside with filling the voids left by the previous dev team of ZClassic.
The team has also stated that they have been with ZCL since the very beginning while taking over the project until there is a new official team ready to take over ZClassic. In order to find the best team possible, the ZClassic Community Edition has submitted a proposal to the official team of Bitcoin Private.
This is probably the best case scenario when it comes to finding a dev team for ZCL, as BTCP team would be able to understand the needs of the new ZCL project named as ZclassicCE in the submitted proposal.
Is Bitcoin Private Going to Accept the Proposal?
In the proposal that was submitted to the official team of ZClassic Community Edition, the team addressed BTCP team, stating that they have been filling in the vacuum that the previous team of ZCL left behind.
So, the team has sent a proposal to the BTCP team, suggesting crucial changes that would make ZClassic and the new face of ZCL “robust” stating that this makes a must in their proposal.
Given the fact that Bitcoin Private understands the technology behind ZClassic, sharing the same protocol, zk-SNARKS, and the BTCP team would make a perfect match for the new dev team of ZClassic that should become ZclassicCE in accordance with the new proposal.
The proposal was officially submitted on June 1st, as stated by the core member of the ZClassic Community Edition team, that shared information with Global Coin Report that the Bitcoin private team provided a reply to their proposal stating that they will take time to consider the proposal while providing them with their final decision within a couple of months.
The core member of the team stated that the reply in form of a decision should come the latest by September 1st.
How will ZClassic (ZCL) to ZclassicCE (AZCL) Transformation occur?
The ZClassic Community Edition team described all the expected changes and improvements for the future of ZCL in their proposal, providing a deep insight of what ZCL should represent in the future, while stating that ZClassic is ready to adapt to the current trends in the blockchain universe, while having the readiness to embrace the future developments.
In their proposal they have stressed out the importance of ZCL as a project, stating that ZClassic has an immense potential in the world of blockchain due to its promptness, technology, transparency, and security.
In the spirit of making a valuable comparison, the team started their proposal with favoring zk-SNARKS, the technology they share with BTCP, as well as stressing out the fact that “Bitcoin is hard.”, that way addressing the fact that they are planning on surpassing all issues that are found in the first crypto ever to be launched.
Further, in their proposal, the team represents the new asset that would make a transformation of the originally known ZCL.
The new asset of ZclassicCE should be called AZCL while one AZCL should make an equivalent to one ZCL unit.
What the team wanted to make clear is that AZCL won’t represent a new fork as the team is not planning on forking ZCL, wanting it to stay as close to ZCash as possible. Instead, the team would have the ZCL currency wrapped that way making it into an ERC233 standard asset.
The team is looking to utilize Komodo Platform in order to apply the second layer to ZCL while collecting notary fees in order to warp ZCL. It is further explained that the wrap doesn’t represent an airdrop or a fork. Just as ZCL could be transformed into a minted AZCL, the process can go in reverse as well.
While ZCL will exist on a single layer, which is on ZClassic platform, AZCL will be added for extended decentralization, making the EVM smart contract operations possible.
ZClassic Full Node Release and the Plans for Development
Alongside with the changes abbreviation for ZClassic’s own digital currency, ZCL, the team has also represented the one-year plan they have prepared, but have underlined the fact that their proposal makes up for a rather descriptive than prescriptive plan.
That being said, the Community Edition team has gone on with describing the technical capabilities of ZCL while presenting its potential for any future endeavors that might take place in the following months, depending on what the BTCP team would reply.
In addition to presenting the importance of zk-SNARKS, the team has also presented their one year plan, stating that ZCL should have a rebase from ZCash, from which it was originally forked while developing a new wallet UI.
The team is also planning on releasing 1.1.1 test net for all enthusiasts, developers, and miners by early July, as stated in the proposal.
The team has also gone forward with releasing Zclassic Full Node Ref Client, version 1.0.14, which is already available for the public, alongside with having been experimenting on creating a new user-friendly wallet, which is based on Electron wrapper.
The team has also added in their proposal that they have been working on lowering chances of centralization within the ZClassic system, stating in their proposal that this should be one of the main objectives for the further development of ZCL, which could potentially become AZCL.
Alongside with lowering the chances for centralization of the system, the team is also planning to have ZclassicCE penetrating into centralized and decentralized exchanges in order to push ZCL into the market with possibly more aggressive presence in the cryptoverse.
Now being ranked as the 202nd currency on the global coin ranking list, ZCL has a proper base that would aid this currency in achieving its full potential.
The current team that took over ZCL in order to find an appropriate dev team that would take ZCL over from this point have been doing their best to get ZCL alive and live trading for now, but as stated by the core team member the ZClassic CE team is hoping that the Bitcoin private will accept their proposal.
The proposal is public for all crypto enthusiasts, as well as the Full Node version that you can check out as we are waiting to see whether the team behind BTCP will take over ZCL and make these promising plans come true.
While ZClassic is waiting for the reply to their proposal sent to the Bitcoin Private team, ZCL can be traded at the price of 10.15$ per one unit.
After the latest change in the market that came as a byproduct of a shaky market, we can see a great portion of coins and tokens dropping against the dollar, while, for now vulnerable, ZCL is dropping with no exception by -6.96% at the moment of this writing.
Potentially, by the 1st of September, ZClassic will get revamped and taken over by a BTCP team, which is what the ZClassic Community Edition Team is hoping for.

XRP Surges By 8% In A Surprise Bull Run
The new price surge that surrounded almost the entire crypto market brought quite a pleasant surprise for XRP holders, as Ripple grew in price by over 8% in the last 24 hours. In fact, XRP managed to achieve a price surge equal to that of Ethereum as of this morning.
While the third largest cryptocurrency is still quite behind ETH when it comes to market cap, many believe that it is only a matter of time before XRP regains its former glory. With that being said, a lot of people are still more than pleased with seeing Ripple climbing back to more stable levels, especially after a big price drop that hit the coin last week.
The new hike up allowed XRP to climb back to $0.446322. While this is still low when compared to its highest point in the last week ($0.52), the coin still seems to be well on its way to recovery. In fact, many believe that XRP has found a new bottom, one that is significantly higher than the last one. Most of this new success can be traced back to a price surge that Ripple has had recently when it even managed to briefly overthrow Ethereum as the second largest coin by market cap.
Despite its drop since then, XRP still remains one of the coins with the strongest growth in the last month. While the market is still far from stable,…
If Tether crashes, will that money pour into Bitcoin?
For a long time now, the so-called stablecoin, Tether (USDT) has been a topic of discussion within the crypto community.
Tether, as a stablecoin, is said to be fully backed by the USD. This allowed it to be one of only a handful of cryptos that can avoid volatility issues, due to the fact that it is backed by a stable fiat currency. However, for as long as it was around, Tether was very secretive of its bank accounts and funds in general.
While claiming to have the ability to back each of its USDT coins, many have questioned whether or not this can be true. At the time of writing (October 16, 2018), Tether has released 2,256,421,736 USDT in circulation. This means that it needs to have at least $2,256,421,736 in order to cover its circulating supply.
At this point, three questions emerge, and answering them could very well change the future of this stablecoin. The questions are as follows:
- Are all USDT coins fully backed?
- If yes, then where did that much money come from?
- If not, what will happen when the market discovers the lie?
Tether continues to keep secrets
As mentioned, Tether has always claimed to be able to back each of its coins. However, instead of operating on transparency, the coin used different tools, mostly opaqueness, misdirection, and playing the victim whenever someone tried to unveil what is truly going…
Is Bitcoin (BTC) Better Than USD?
Despite all its recent progress, cryptocurrencies still do not inspire trust in a lot of people. Many view them as unsafe money, with its very nature being doubtful. However, a recent report by the Polish Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Nuclear Physics shows that situation regarding cryptocurrencies may not be as bad as it seems. In fact, the report claims that Bitcoin might even be a better currency than it looks like.
Bitcoin vs traditional money
Bitcoin, as many are already aware of, is the first cryptocurrency. It was created a decade ago and was officially launched in 2009. But, even though it has been around for around 9 years at this point, it is still largely mistrusted by a lot of investors, especially when it comes to large institutions.
However, thanks to the Cracow-based Institute of Nuclear Physics’ recent report, this common opinion might actually be wrong. The Institute has conducted a detailed statistical analysis of the BTC market and has published the results in a scientific journal called Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science.
Surprisingly enough, the report portraits Bitcoin in a very positive light.
The report started by commenting on the credibility of traditional money. In the past, money that people have been using was backed by specific material commodities, such as gold. These commodities gave the money its value and served as a guarantee that the money actually has worth. This is…
