Gemini announced they’re adding Zcash to their platform on May 19, 2018.
Gemini Is Now the World’s First Licensed Zcash Exchange!
We are excited to announce support for Zcash trading and custody. Starting on Saturday, May 19th at 9:30am EDT customers will be able to start depositing Zcash into their Gemini accounts. Trading will begin on Tuesday, May 22nd at 9:30am EDT.
We have been working closely with the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYSDFS) to obtain approval to offer Zcash trading and custody services to our customers as a New York trust company. Our approval makes Gemini the first licensed Zcash exchange in the world. It also makes the NYSDFS the first regulatory agency in the world to supervise Zcash, reaffirming their position as the leading financial regulator in the area of digital assets. To learn more read our blog post.
Zcash pumped 30% today, probably due to this news. Litecoin is being added to Gemini next!
Roger Ver claims Bitcoin has up to $50 transaction fees, he still claims this TODAY in 2018. I hate to see these lies he is spreading. If he’s using a fair argument and fighting fairly, I would respect that, but he is not.
I am sending 1 BTC today,
$0.33 cents to send 1 bitcoin that’s equal to $8,342
Hey “Roger the liar” can you please tell me where you’re seeing high fees? By the way, you also have the option to send at “economy” level for only 1 sat! (1 cent, $0.01 USD fee)
There is another Zclassic & Bitcoin forking into Anonymous Bitcoin in September, 2018. (BTCA, ticker will be confirmed later).
The team behind Anonymous Bitcoin claimm to improve the fork situation, in comparison to the previous fork of ZCL & BTC into Bitcoin Private (BTCP). They plan to work with exchanges prior to launching, with confirmation about listings. This was one major problem that BTCP ran into.

MoneroV, a planned hard-fork of one of the top 10 biggest market cap crypto currencies Monero has postponed fork date, originally was set for March 13-14, and the new estimated fork date April 30th. Monero (XMR) owners will receive 10 XMV per 1 XMR they own.
Statement from MoneroV official website:
MoneroV hard-fork date postponed to April 30th, 2018
Having both our team and community grow rapidly, the past few months has positioned the MoneroV project and the upcoming hard-fork as a highly anticipated event. With both great support and enthusiasm, we are dedicated to realizing the vision of a truly decentralized, finite currency to serve the community for years to come.
Due to the growing demand and increasing expectations from users, trading platforms, and large mining pools, we have decided that the Snapshot date will be postponed to ~30th of April block 1564965 to facilitate third-party services requests and including these below reasons:
Exchanges and custodian services need more time to implement the MoneroV technology for them to support the fork and credit XMR holders with XMV. We are in the process of helping leading exchanges (from the top five Monero trading platforms) to list MoneroV. These services require additional time for implementation and we are positive that postponing the hard-fork date so that more users will be credited with their XMV outweighs the drawbacks.
Monero’s own software update that will occur in March is causing confusion with the initial hard-fork date. This is a common complaint we hear from both the Monero community and our own. Postponing the hard-fork snapshot date will help both Blockchains.
Mining pools are asking for more time to implement MoneroV. We want to help these pools to prepare for the hard-fork split so that MoneroV will be more stable and robust.
Many users have difficulty storing their XMR locally using the Monero GUI wallet due to its large blockchain size. Postponing the hard-fork date will help more users to prepare and be able to claim their XMV’s.
Overall, taking into consideration these reasons, and although MoneroV’s codebase is fully functional, we are positive that it would be best to postpone the snapshot date.
UPDATE, supportive exchanges are: BTC Alpha, Ovis Exchange and HitBTC
