  • One-hundred percent decentralized development
  • Zclassic spirit, Zcash core, Bitcoin fundamentals
  • Always immutable, hardforks only for improvements, changing history is banned
  • Fair proposal system
  • Everyone is equal and every coin is made by the community and for the community
  • Everyone should be able to mine (ASIC resistant)
  • We fight for freedom and personal liberty
  • No pre-mine, no ICO, no dev taxes

To enshrine this vision of liberty, fairness, and the fight for freedom, a message was encoded in the genesis block timestamp of BitcoinZ dedicated to The Purest Son of Liberty – Thaddeus Kosciuszko, whose 200th death anniversary is October 15th. See here
