Privacy-centric Zclassic (ZCL) is skyrocketing after its founder Rhett Creighton decided to “put more ZCL in the hands of people.”

In the last 24 hours, ZCL jumped over 60% to hit a high of $0.45. The bullish momentum appears to be correlated with the increasing network activity this cryptocurrency has seen as more people join Creighton’s campaign.

Zclassic is a fork of Zcash (ZEC) that uses a zero-knowledge proving scheme. This technology provides the base for its decentralized and open-source protocol offering privacy and selective transparency of transactions.
In order to generate awareness about this cryptocurrency, its creator, Rhett Creighton, came up with a simple marketing stunt that is generating a lot of buzz in the community. Creighton sent 1,000 ZCL to ten different people on Twitter who promised to send 10 ZCL to 50 other people.
A Twitter user under the pseudonym cmodtohan1 saw the marketing strategy as “insane” and “truly amazing.” A glimpse at the hashtag #800CryptoClan or #800cc on Twitter shows the effectiveness of the ongoing campaign.
John Mark T. Monzon, for instance, told his followers to draw a picture of a duck and the winner would get $5 worth of Zclassic.

Along the same lines, Mozart asked his followers to paste their ZCL wallets QR codes for him to pick 50 random winners.
