BitcoinZ was reportedly launched on 9 Sep 2017 with no premine, developer fees, ICO, and was not a chain fork of any coin. BitcoinZ has also committed itself to always being GPU mineable and ASIC-resistant. BitcoinZ uses zkSNARKs for privacy (similar to ZCash).
BitcoinZ prides itself on 100% community inclusion – the community posts open and public proposals for change that are voted on. Progress is achieved by volunteerism, with some proposals seeking a budget from community donations – mostly from member mining activities and pools supporting the project by setting their pools to auto-donate.
How do I buy cryptocurrency?
While some cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, are available for purchase with U.S. dollars, others require that you pay with bitcoin or another cryptocurrency.
To buy cryptocurrencies, you’ll need a “wallet,” an online app that can hold your currency. Generally, you create an account on an exchange, and then you can transfer real money to buy cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin or ethereum.
Coinbase is one popular cryptocurrency trading exchange where you can create both a wallet and buy and sell bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
