What is Bitcoin Gold?

 

Bitcoin Gold is an open-source cryptocurrency project developed by Bitcoin volunteers. It was created as a result of a hard fork (radical protocol upgrade) on October 25, 2017. The Bitcoin Blockchain was split on block 491407, creating two parallel chains.

The objective of Bitcoin Gold was "to decentralise Bitcoin". This collocation might seem contradictory, but the Bitcoin Gold supporters implied that the upgrade will decentralise mining by adopting a PoW algorithm and Equihash-BTG. Due to this, the users can mine BTG with common GPUs instead of ASIC.

Bitcoin Gold has been accepted quite positively from the beginning, so various platforms offered their support to the novelty.

As for now, Bitcoin Gold is a coin available on the majority of exchanges and, of course, within Guarda wallets. Buying BTG is possible with cryptocurrency transfers and with bank cards. Sometimes crypto exchanges charge extra fees can –pay attention to it and keep in mind that Guarda will not charge you with any additional transaction fees.

Bitcoin Gold price, just as any other crypto, is quite volatile and is based on the coin’s supply and demand.

BTG as a cryptocurrency has something interesting about it – they went through a hard fork you can get some BTG coins for free! How do you claim Bitcoin Gold for free? To be fair, this is a “privilege” only for those who owned original Bitcoins before the fork. So, those who had Bitcoins before the hard fork can actually get the amount they had in the wallet in the moment of the split in BTG. If you are one of those, do not hesitate to claim yours!

Is It Secure?

The Bitcoin Gold team is made up of very few people from all over the world. Its six founders: Jack Liao (China), Robert Kuhne (America), Alejandro Regojo (Spain), Martin Kuvandzhiev (Bulgaria) and Franco Niebles (Colombia) and the still unknown h4x3rotab (China) occupy the leadership positions.

Bitcoin Gold developers are working to integrate the most important and beneficial scalability proposals that arise among the users into their network, making it a rapidly developing space.

Unfortunately, lately, there have been many cases of hacker attacks and malicious institutions activity. For that reason, Bitcoin Gold took up additional security measures and extra protection. As we can see, the team cares about the safety of their users and tries their best to protect the clientele.
