Bitcoin Gold (BTG) Review | Coinopsy

What is it?

Bitcoin Gold, so each bitcoin is backed by gold….. Nope, It is basically the same as bitcoin but with some changes to the code that try to fix some of the problems with bitcoin.

Problems like transaction speeds and to make it more decentralized by allowing the normal pc the ability to mine the coin. Not just high end super computers that massive companies own. This makes the coin less likely to a hack than bitcoin.

Clone Success

We still think Bitcoin Gold and any other coins with bit in the name are just trying to ride off the success of bitcoin. Bitcoin might be a slow old dog, that requires specialised mining equipment, but It is still by far the highest market cap.

Company Message
