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 The community claims that Satoshi Nakamoto’s idealistic vision of “one CPU one vote” has been superseded by a reality dominated by a very small number of entities, some of whom have allegedly engaged in abusive practices against individual miners and the Bitcoin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
