What is Bitcoin Private?
Bitcoin private (BTCP) is a first of its kind, a “fork merge” of BTC and ZCL. The goal behind the coin is to combine the critical features of the two coins into something better. That is privacy features of ZClassic and the resilience, security and market awareness of BTC. Also, BTCP is community-driven coin based on the open-source code, which guarantees openness and accessibility for the community.
Transactions on the network are P2P without any intermediaries. Network nodes merely verify transactions on its blockchain, and they are recorded on a public ledger. It is more secure and anonymous, quicker to deliver due to its large size.

BTCP, as it stands, was a proposal initially made on Twitter by the founder of Zcash, Rhett Creighton. Others came on board to help author the whitepaper. As for now, it has over 200 contributors.
The coin was announced towards the end of 2017; it led to price appreciation of ZCL and BTC.
