Although Coin Gecko is warning all traders that Zclassic (ZCL) explorer is showing an error page, advising to be careful when trading ZCL, Zclassic seems to be doing pretty fine on August 28th with the most recent gains of over 8%, still ranked as a 145th coin on the official ranking list.
Zclassic has been through a lot with two teams seeking support for ZCL from Bitcoin Private Team (BTCP), one of them being Zclassic Community Edition team. However, approximately a week ago on August 18th, John McAfee announced his support for team ANON that will be leading Zclassic (ZCL) to a new fork.
John McAfee Presents ANON, the Team behind the Upcoming ZCL Fork
John McAfee is one of the most iconic figures in the world of cryptocurrency by far as Twitterati are frequently following up with McAfee’s crypto price predictions as well as acknowledging his support for numerous blockchain related projects.
On August 18th in an official tweet, McAfee announced that he supports the upcoming fork of Zclassic, ANON. In the original tweet, John McAfee also added that he had tested numerous privacy coins and that only several have stood against the trials.
McAfee also published a video on Twitter, confirming his support for the Zclassic fork to ANON, also explaining the importance of privacy coins.
Although many promising cryptocurrency projects are counting billions of dollars in market capitalization, not all of these crypto assets can keep the privacy of transaction data, which is why privacy coins are essential for those who are looking for a way to keep their transactions and balance completely private.
In the video, besides from explaining the importance of on-chain privacy regarding transactions and personal data, McAfee added that he supports ANON because he knows that the team behind the fork is always providing great results.
To strengthen his support for Zclassic’s upcoming fork, McAfee added that there are only two privacy coins that he supports one of them being LUXCoin (LUX) about which he talked about before and the other ANON.
He finalized his statement by inviting everyone to research both of the privacy coins he openly supports.
In the meanwhile, ANON is seeking support from exchange platforms, most recently announcing that Satoshi Trade cryptocurrency exchange has accepted ANON to its list of coins.
ANON is preparing to take off officially on September 10th, while actively updating the community.
ANON Presented as ANONYMOUS Bitcoin
As ANON is preparing to take off on September 10th, the team behind the Zclassic (ZCL) fork has described their project as Anonymous Bitcoin, which also describes the combination of forks that make ANON as it is.
ANON is actually “crafted” as a combination of Zclassic and Bitcoin fork, offering privacy while maintaining the upbeat of traditional decentralized blockchain-based technology.
ANON team has also announced that the wallets are already ready, as well as that test nets are all set up with the next release coming out in several days as announced on August 30th, only 10 days before the fork officially takes place.
ANON has already won John McAfee, one of the most influential figures in the cryptoverse also aiming to attract new community members and ANON supporters.
The team has announced that all users interested in exchanging ANON for their ZCL and BTC will be able to exchange their Zclassic units for 2:1 ration, while those exchanging their BTC will get 1:1 exchange ratio.
ANON is said to offer “more than other forks”, however, the fact is that most forks are planning on revolutionizing cryptocurrency space but end up not doing so. ANON is yet to be tested by the community in this case scenario.
The team claims that ANON is offering more masternodes, faster blocks, and transparent development while holding onto zk-SNARKS for anonymity derived from Zclassic for full privacy.
Zclassic (ZCL) in the Market
As ANON is less than two weeks away from becoming the freshest Zclassic fork, in addition to being combined with BTC fork, Zclassic is still being live traded in the market with the most recent change of 8% up against the dollar.
As the market is showing minor signs of recovery, Zclassic (ZCl) is moving up with the positive tides, also showing around 116% of gains on a year to date chart.
