Bitcoin Gold was created in 2017 through a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain. It is a community-led project to create an experimental hard fork of Bitcoin to a new proof-of-work algorithm. The Bitcoin Gold community initiated the fork as part of its mission to make Bitcoin mining decentralized again. The community claims that Satoshi Nakamoto’s idealistic vision of “one CPU one vote” has been superseded by a reality dominated by a very small number of entities, some of whom have allegedly engaged in abusive practices against individual miners and the Bitcoin network as a whole, such as influencing Bitcoin price. The Bitcoin Gold blockchain contains the full transaction history of the Bitcoin blockchain up until the fork date, including the exact balances of Bitcoins held in wallets around the world, providing insights on Bitcoin price and other details about these wallets. Wallet addresses that contain Bitcoin immediately before the fork were given an equivalent amount of Bitcoin Gold immediately after the fork. The Bitcoin and Bitcoin Gold blockchains both continue onward independently after the fork, with the Bitcoin Gold organization providing support for the latter. A crypto endowment held in multi-sig, time-locked wallets is funding current and future operations of the organization. Bitcoin price

Bitcoin Gold (BTG) Rating

2018-09-17
Bitcoin Gold (BTG) was forked from Bitcoin in October 2017. It is a community-led project that wanted to become more decentralized than Bitcoin. Some within the community felt a very small number of groups controlled the manufacture and distribution of mining equipment, so BTG introduced a new proof-of-work algorithm that allows anyone to participate in the mining process – not just those with specialized and expensive hardware. Supporters of BTG believe this is more in line with Satoshi’s original vision. BTG was never designed to overtake Bitcoin, unlike Bitcoin Cash, as it wanted to wrestle mining power away from those dominating the mining sector and hand it back to everyday amateur miners equipped with a GPU.

Bitcoin Gold Rating Report

2018-09-07
Bitcoin Gold is a payment token hard forked from Bitcoin. Compared to Bitcoin, Bitcoin Gold utilizes an Equihash PoW algorithm to make the hashrate more decentralized. However, there is a single mining pool holding over 50% of the whole network’s hashrate currently. Recently, Bitcoin Gold was hacked by double-spending attack.
