I just wanted to mention a very interesting open source development project in case any of the developers reading this site would want to get involved with an open source crypto currency / block chain project.
Bitcoin Private is a crypto currency coin in the “privacy” segment with a very interesting road map. The currently running code is based on a coin called Zclassic (which in turn is based on a coin called Zcash which in turn is based on an ancient version of Bitcoin). The key feature of these coins is called zkSNARKs (zero knowledge) which long story short makes financial transactions completely hidden. The main development effort of Bitcoin Private ATM is to “re-base” by bringing zkSNARKs to the very latest Bitcoin v0.16 code base. AFAIK it’s nearly done and a testnet will soon be set up. Then many other features will be added, like “Dandelion” which is a set of obfuscation features similar to those that other (non-zkSNARKs) privacy coins use. In the end, Bitcoin Private will combine all key features of coins like Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Zcash, Monero, Dash, Verge etc into one single, totally unique “super-coin”.
