About Bitcoin Gold

Overview Image

BTG is a cryptocurrency with Bitcoin fundamentals, mined on common GPUs instead of specialty ASICs. ASICs tend to monopolize mining to a few big players, but GPU mining means anyone can mine again - restoring decentralization and independence. GPU mining rewards go to individuals worldwide, instead of mostly to ASIC warehouse owners, recreating network effects that Bitcoin used to have.

What is Bitcoin Gold?

Bitcoin Gold (BTG) is a cryptocurrency. It is a hard fork of Bitcoin, the open source cryptocurrency. It is an open source, decentralized digital currency without a central bank or intermediary that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer Bitcoin Gold network. The stated purpose of the hard fork is to change the proof of work algorithm so that application specific integrated circuits (ASIC) cannot be used to mine the Bitcoin Gold block chain

Born as a community-driven project, it was initiated by Alejandro Regojo and Hang Ying as top developers. Bitcoin Gold hard forked from the Bitcoin block chain on October 24, 2017, at block height 491407.

Bitcoin Gold (BTG) Hard Fork Implements New Mining Algorithm in July 2018. The actual algorithm that was developed by Zcash (now, Electric Coin Company) was based on parameter set <200, 9>. Bitcoin Gold has modified this algorithm and is now adopting parameter set <144, 5>. This new algorithm is called Equihash-BTG. The new algorithm requires more memory than the one that was originally developed by Zcash. Soon after the launch, the website came under a distributed denial of service attack, and received criticism from Coinbase and Bittrex for being hastily put together, as well as including a developer pre-mine.

In May 2018, Bitcoin Gold was hit by a 51% hashing attack by an unknown actor. This type of attack makes it possible to manipulate the blockchain ledger on which transactions are recorded, and to spend the same digital coins more than once.[7] During the attack, 388,000 BTG (worth approximately $18 million USD) was stolen from several cryptocurrency exchanges. Bitcoin Gold was later delisted from Bittrex, after the team refused to help pay some of the damages.

Bitcoin Gold suffered from 51% attacks again in January 2020.[9] In July 2020 the version 0.17.2 was released as an "emergency update" in order to elude a long attack chain originated a few days before.

After cash, cryptocurrency is the second most widely held financial asset by women

Cryptocurrency has emerged as a sector that has begun to attract investments from a large group of female investors from all over the world. According to a new report from eToro, cryptocurrency is the second most widely held financial asset by women, trailing only cash. Women crypto holdings increased from 29 percent to 34 percent in the last two quarters of 2022 — between July and December. During the same time period, male crypto investments increased by 1%. As part of its Retail Investor Beat survey, the Israeli online brokerage platform recruited 10,000 participants from thirteen different countries. "Crypto is succeeding where traditional financial markets have sometimes failed," according to CoinTelegraph, citing an eToro report. The increased participation of women in the crypto sector has recently been highlighted and acknowledged by Indian exchanges CoinSwitch Kuber and WazirX. According to CoinSwitch, women users from India accounted for 8% of total transactions last year. According to WazirX findings, Indian women prefer blue chip tokens, which are perceived to have higher long-term value and better liquidity. Despite the fact that cryptocurrencies have not been in the best of health in recent months, the sector has seen a significant number of new entrants. Despite the industry major turbulence, overall crypto holdings increased from 36% to 39% last year on a quarter-by-quarter basis. Retail investors, like women investors, are flocking to the crypto bandwagon. Retail investors aged 35 to 54 increased their crypto holdings by 10% last year. In the case of eToro, it acquired options trading platform Gatsby in August in order to expand its presence and crypto services in the United States. The transaction was completed for $50 million (approximately Rs. 400 crore) in cash and common stock. eToro, headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel, began in 2007 as a fintech firm before shifting its focus to the crypto sphere as its business evolved.
