About Bitcoin Gold
Bitcoin Gold is a hard fork of Bitcoin, that was created by community request with the purpose of making mining decentralized again.
Over the years many miners complained that the Bitcoin mining al
gorithm disproportionally favors major mining operations. Bitcoin Gold developers adopted the Equihash PoW algorithm in the hopes of creating a more balanced field of play. They also added additional security methods to the original Bitcoin code, such as replay protection and unique wallet addresses.
The Bitcoin Gold fork took place on October 24, 2017, and while it did not have the success of Bitcoin hard fork (Bitcoin Cash) it is still being traded on various big exchanges with decent volume.
