About Bitcoin Gold

In October 2017, the Bitcoin blockchain was divided, and a new Bitcoin Gold or BTG cryptocurrency appeared. The first official wallet was registered on November 1, 2017 by analogy with Bitcoin Cash, which opened the wallets on the first of August. The project itself was presented in July 2017 by the creator of Lightning ASIC, Jack Lao. Jack - the founder of the mining farms, as well as the developer, his nickname - H4X3. He said that the main goal of the new cryptocurrency is to improve the first protocol. The change should occur through a shift from the usual Bitcoin Gold mining algorithms to mining coin through high-speed graphics processors. Equihash will replace the main algorithm. Farm owners can choose the size of the block they want to retrieve. They will be able to set a specific goal and earn coins on the Bitcoin Gold wallet. The cryptocurrency has an increased degree of security, and the algorithm allows ordinary users to have access to the pool of miners. Thus, not only professionals but also users who have a low power of personal computers can mine this coins. The BTG network is characterized by improved code that provides enhanced overall performance. Despite all the advantages mentioned above, many investors note poor protection against duplication. For this reason, various services confuse Bitcoin Gold with Bitcoin, and as a result, forbid certain operations. But while some are skeptical of Bitcoin Gold, others may find it attractive because of the project's main goal - to create a truly decentralized bitcoin.
