ZClassic Price Jumps Above $100

ZClassic’s price has jumped 22.5% to $98.26 over a 24-hour period today, the date of a scheduled fork, giving it a $335,496,321 market valuation. The cryptocurrency has a circulating supply of 3,414,350 ZCL out of a maximum supply of 21 million ZCL. Just 44 days ago, Bitcoin Private’s founder and lead developer, Rhett Creighton, proposed that the ZClassicCoin (ZCL) be revitalized by migrating it to become a bitcoin hard fork – “Bitcoin Private,” according to a Reddit post. The Bitcoin Private contribution team announced the much-anticipated snapshot date of both bitcoin and ZClassic which are scheduled to occur today, Feb. 28, 2018, according to the Reddit post. This announcement was made at the first official Bitcoin Private Conference held in Austin, Texas. In the last 24 hours, the price has ranged from $7.15 to $122.32. The price began a slight decline in the past week, beginning the week at $157.37. In the past month, the price has varied from $57.24 to $196.67.

Texas Officials Issue Cease and Desist Order to LeadInvest

The Enforcement Division of the Texas State Securities Board has issued an immediate cease and desist order to LeadInvest, which was a platform that allowed investors to “earn interest on the crypto market.” According to the order, LeadInvest was targeting investors in Texas and was failing to both disclose the background and qualifications of its team members, and the liabilities associated with its mining and lending operations. The team associated with the project is also non-existent, with stock photos being used in conjunction with fabricated names. The largest red flag for the Texas State Securities Board was the fact that the platform was offering unlicensed securities for sale, and therefore violating most of the Texas Securities Act. The LeadInvest website is loaded with “get-rich-quick” language promising interested parties incredible returns, and that “zero” cryptocurrency experience is required to get involved. After a light attempt at explaining the cryptocurrency market, the team is presented along with a call to action informing investors of getting started even with just a few cents.
