Bitcoin Private Pressing Forward Towards Their Goals With Their Consistent Weekly Updates
Bitcoin Private is a fork of both Bitcoin and Zclassic blockchains where snapshots were done on February 28, 2018 and Bitcoin Private mainnet was launched 3 days after.
With its most recent update, Bitcoin Private is working on their product development which includes wallets and payment solution, partnerships with merchant vendors, and several marketing initiatives.
Making BTCP tokens easily accessible by the community is one of their priorities, which means listing in exchanges.
Also, there are already some vendors or online businesses who are interested in accepting BTCP as payment and the team has responded to them by making them beta users of their phase 1 merchant platform.
BTCP team is hard at work and BTCP as a community coin is one of the fastest developing coins in this timescape. Keep up the great work!

US National Security Agency Has Been Tracking Bitcoin Users
The Edward Snowden papers reveal that the National Security Agency (NSA) of the United States has been keeping tabs on bitcoin users worldwide.
Reports say that there were leaked classified documents by Snowden which prove the US government/bitcoin connection.
NSA is not monitoring random individual people but rather groups that are taking advantage of the anonymity that bitcoin transactions provide for clandestine purposes, like money laundering activities.
The government agency is able to use sophisticated tools available solely to them to gather and analyze data from the internet.
