Bitcoin Gold Launches on November 12,2017
Bitcoin Gold is the second project to fork away from the Bitcoin blockchain to create a new coin this year; on August 1, Bitcoin Cash (Bcash) was the first.
The most important difference between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Gold is a new proof-of-work mining algorithm.
Other changes implemented by Bitcoin Gold are mostly to ensure a smooth split away from Bitcoin.
Bitcoin Gold will be supported by a relatively large number of exchanges, including major players like Bitfinex, OKex and HitBTC.
For more information on Bitcoin Gold, see Bitcoin Magazine’s earlier article on this project.
