What is Bitcoin Gold (BTG)?

coins.co.th Support -

Bitcoin Gold is a digital currency originally forked from the primary Bitcoin (BTC) protocol in October 2017.  Bitcoin Gold uses an alternative mining algorithm called “Equihash-BTG” and specifically attempts to create a form of Bitcoin that is resistant to “ASIC miners” (specialized BTC mining hardware), which they believe will lead to a more decentralized mining system.


Because BTG was formed as the result of a hard fork, any wallets on the Bitcoin network holding BTC at the time of the fork (October 2017) were entitled to same number of coins in BTG.
