What is Bitcoin Gold?
Bitcoin Gold is a hardfork of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency. It is one of the newest cryptocurrencies to launch and is attracting crypto users because of its increasing usability and because of the Bitcoin brand. The founders of Bitcoin Gold believe that Bitcoin has become too centralized and large companies mine the large majority of Bitcoin. Having companies control the Bitcoin network defeats the object of peer to peer currencies and a decentralized ledger.
History of Bitcoin Gold
Bitcoin Gold is a hard fork of Bitcoin. The hard fork took place on October 24, 2017, with block 491,407 on the Bitcoin blockchain.
The Bitcoin Gold (BTG) coin was created by Jack Liao, the founder of a computer mining firm in Hong Kong (Lightning ASIC). The project was made public in July 2017.
