CryptoCoin.com: Bitcoin Gold (BTG)

Bitcoin Gold (BTG)

0.00578 BTC
(Source: Bittrex, 5 minutes ago)

Bitcoin Gold (BTG) was launched on 12 November 2017 by hard-forking the original Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain at block number 491,407 and switching to a new proof-of-work algorithm (Equihash). This has created a bifurcation of the Bitcoin blockchain. The original Bitcoin blockchain continues on unaltered, but a new branch of the blockchain has split off from the original chain. This new branch is a distinct blockchain with the same transaction history as Bitcoin up until the fork, but then diverges from it. As a result of this process, a new cryptocurrency was born. The purpose of Bitcoin Gold is to make Bitcoin mining decentralised and available to anybody; this is in contrast to Bitcoin (BTC) mining which has been dominated by large mining farms running highly specialised equipment.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 85 (3.7), 6 months: 55 (6.0), 3 months: 80 (2.3), 4 weeks: 92 (1.8), 1 week: 63 (2.1)
