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.

Bitcoins Hashrate Slides 15 Percent in 10 Days Price and Difficulty Puts Pressure on BTC Miners

The cost of bitcoin has been on a long losing streak since November 10, 2021, when the main crypto resource tapped a record-breaking high at $69K per unit. During the most recent fourteen days, bitcoin has shed over 19% in esteem, and the organization's hashrate has dropped from more than 200 exahash each second (EH/s) to 174 EH/s losing generally 15% in ten days.Common Unrest in Kazakhstan Leads to Hashrate Loss Speculation, Kazakhstan's Bitcoin Miners Say Issues Did Not Affect ThemThis week the common distress in Kazakhstan made a many individuals hypothesize on whether or not it would influence Bitcoin's worldwide hashrate. The justification behind this supposition that is on the grounds that it is assessed that Kazakhstan represents basically 18% of the worldwide hashrate, as per the latest appraisals from the Cambridge Center for Alternative Finance (CCAF). Checking out the 30-day outline for Bitcoin's (BTC) hashrate demonstrates that the convention's hashpower lost generally 15% in ten days.Reports coming from Kazakhstan demonstrate that the common distress has balanced out and the country's Data Center Industry and Blockchain Association of Kazakhstan (NABCD), said the issues didn't influence advanced cash diggers. There were a couple of issues that might have impacted bitcoin diggers in the course of the last week that are not related with the issues in Kazakhstan.Bitcoin's Low Price and Higher Difficulty Puts Pressure on Bitcoin MinersFive days prior, bitcoin (BTC) was trading hands for $46.5K per unit yet the cost slid over 10% in esteem. Additionally, north of a month prior, the best performing mining rig with more than 100 terahash each second (TH/s) would get $25 to $30 each day, per machine, and a power pace of $0.12 each kilowatt-hour. Today, that equivalent mining apparatus will create $14.87 each day at the hour of composing, utilizing a similar electrical utilization. The bitcoin value drop could undoubtedly influence the hashrate and could be one reason it has dropped 15%.Another motivation behind why the hashrate dropped 15% could be a result of the last mining trouble increment. The keep going increment occurred on January 8, 2022, as the organization's mining trouble hopped 0.41 % higher. While that may not be that quite a bit of an expansion, the trouble is outrageously near the measurement's record-breaking high, and the organization has seen three continuous expansions in succession. In over 11 days from now, the mining trouble is relied upon to increment once more, up 0.67% from where it is today.As of now, pool appropriation measurements in the course of the most recent three days show F2pool and Foundry USA are the world's top mining pool today, as the two pools have 16.74% of the worldwide hash rate each or 29.03 EH/s per pool. There are 13 realized mining pools committing SHA256 hashrate to the BTC chain and obscure hashrate addresses 1.40% of the total or 2.42 EH/s. In spite of the new hashrate drop, from December 31 up until now, the hashrate is up 26.08% since the day preceding the new year.
