Bitcoin Gold (BTG) was launched in 2017 as a user-friendly Bitcoin alternative by co-founders areHang Yin, Martin Kuvandzhiev, and Franco Niebles. In effect, BTG is a hard fork (spin-off) of existing blocks of the BTC blockchain. The Bitcoin Gold blockchain is driven by a proof of work (POW) algorithm known as Equihash or Zhash.
Bitcoin Gold has fulfilled some of its aims by offering complete anonymity and significantly improving processing times compared to what we have with Bitcoin. Bitcoin Gold (BTG) can be mined on regular GPUs rather than the expensive and sophisticated ASICs with the hard fork.
Bitcoin Gold (BTG) coin price was initially valued at over $500, and it hit an all-time high (ATH) of $539.72 on 23 October 2017. However, the price fell rapidly below $200 in a short period but hit another high of $509 on 11 November 2017.
BTG has consistently retained a spot among the regular top 100 coins by market cap on both CoinMarket cap and Coingecko rankings. The price of Bitcoin Gold is currently at $28.95, with a market capitalization of $507 million.
