What is Bitcoin Gold?

Bitcoin Gold (BTG) arises from the second fork of Bitcoin (i.e. the second version originating from the Bitcoin source code) after bitcoin cash.

The Bitcoin Gold fork took place on October 24, 2017, at block 491,407.

This cryptocurrency maintains bitcoin’s transactional history, so if you owned Bitcoin before the fork, you now have an equivalent number of Bitcoin Gold.

This cryptocurrency aims to introduce an alternative mining algorithm less susceptible to ASIC-based optimization, thus allowing users to earn more with their computer cycles.

Beginning of Bitcoin Gold

It certainly cannot be said that this Bitcoin-born cryptocurrency has had a promising start.

Immediately after launching in late October, the website went offline due to a DDOS attack.

This has pushed the price of Bitcoin Gold significantly lower.

According to finance leaders CoinMarketCap, Bitcoin Gold opened trading at 20:00 UTC at a price of $ 479 and then dropped at 16:11 UTC to $ 274.44.

In addition to taking the site offline, the main contributing factor to the devastating decline was the lack of support from the Bitcoin community.

Bitcoin Gold is an extremely volatile asset and therefore continues to have bullish and bearish trends.

5 things to know about Bitcoin Gold

  1. The BTG cryptocurrency was created by Jack Liao, founder of the Lightning ASIC (a Hong Kong-based computer mining company). Liao made the project public in July 2017.

  3. To ensure the security of the Bitcoin ecosystem, BTG implements unique cryptocurrency wallet addresses and a dual system of protection from hackers and other threats.
  4. Complete transparency with a free open-source software project. This project is carried out by volunteer and enthusiastic Bitcoin developers around the world.
