Introduction

Bitcoin Gold (BTG) is a new proof-of-work cryptocurrency that will be hard forked from the Bitcoin blockchain on October 1 at block height 487427.

  • Bitcoin Gold strives to uphold the principles of free open source software development, economic liberty, privacy, trustlessness, and decentralization.
  • Bitcoin Gold will follow the Bitcoin Core technical roadmap for on-chain scaling, layer-two scaling, and fungibility enhancements.
  • The Bitcoin Gold initial coin distribution mechanism is exactly the same as Bcash (BCH). All Bitcoin holders will be able to use their BTC private keys to claim an equal amount of BTG.

What The Bitcoin Community Is Saying About Bitcoin Gold


If Bgold wants to implement GPU mining on Bitcoin, bringing it back to how I used to mine, I’m more than happy to see that. I’m all for non-contentious hard forking for experiments, just don’t steal the brand, don’t steal the logo, don’t try to confuse people, do your own thing, make it special, make it good, and I wish you the best of luck.
