General BTG facts, technical details and general information about Bitcoin Gold crypto currency
Head of the Hong Kong mining firm LightningASIC Jack Liao is the founding father of Bitcoin Gold project. The cryptocurrency appeared as a result of hard fork on block 491,407 on October 24th 2017. The key feature of the new crypto currency is its ability to be mined on video cards. The system implements the Equihash algorithm, which reduces the efficiency of mining on specialized devices like ASIC equipment, which makes Bitcoin Gold more attractive to a larger pool of miners.
The price of Bitcoin Gold (BTG) has skyrocketed after it was added to Bittrex exchange on November 20th, 2017 - the price of the crypto currency went from $ 120 to $360, with a subsequent correction to $ 280. However, November was not only good news for Bitcoin Gold. In the same month users of the only BTG purse Mybtgwallet at that time lost more than $ 2.5 million and accused the project team of fraud. At the start of 2018 experts consider Bitcoin Gold price to be fair and predict that further movements will largely depend on BTC and the whole state of crypto market. On the whole, the word "bitcoin" and family ties with the original cryptocurrency plays into the hands of investors. The wave of attention to BTC indirectly affects the fork. The price of Bitcoin Gold increases, although slower then with its "elder brother".

This is like clockwork, and BTG is doing exactly what most analysts have been calling for months. The moment BTC flipped to bullish, BTG began its steady movement upwards. This is great for us that anticipated such a drastic rise, and now we’re...

I'm going to get flamed for this but I really think BTG is a scam. I think it's just a matter of time before this coin gets exactly what's coming to it: an exit from the team. There's just not real use case or point for it to still be ranked so...
