What is Bitcoin Gold (BTG)?

Bitcoin Gold (BTG) is a cryptocurrency spawned from a hard fork of Bitcoin (BTC) in 2017. While it upholds the foundational principles of decentralized, peer-to-peer electronic cash that underpin Bitcoin, Bitcoin Gold aims for enhanced accessibility and decentralization through the adoption of a distinct mining algorithm.

Who Created Bitcoin Gold (BTG) and When?

Bitcoin Gold was brought to life by a group of developers spearheaded by Jack Liao in 2017. Motivated by a vision to make Bitcoin more egalitarian and decentralized, Liao and his team designed Bitcoin Gold to be mineable via GPUs (Graphic Processing Units) in contrast to Bitcoin, which leans heavily on ASIC (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) mining, a method that can be both specialized and expensive.

How is Bitcoin Gold (BTG) Utilized?

Bitcoin Gold (BTG) serves purposes akin to Bitcoin and a myriad of other cryptocurrencies. It facilitates peer-to-peer transactions, acts as a store of value, and stands as an investment instrument. BTG can be leveraged for both online and in-person transactions and is tradable on several cryptocurrency exchanges. One of Bitcoin Gold's primary objectives is to encourage more inclusive and decentralized mining. By making mining feasible for a broader swath of individuals equipped with GPUs, it seeks to offset the dominance of pricier, specialized ASIC miners prevalent in Bitcoin's mining landscape.
