Bitcoin Gold Celebrates a Two-Month Anniversary with Updates and Price Increase
The hard fork was planned for the 24th of October on block height 491407 when the BTG community referred to the ongoing developing processes as post-mining. The network’s team revealed a total of 100,000 coins onto the market. This was made through accelerated mining of around 8,000 blocks at 12.5 BTG per block. The Bitcoin Gold organization’s ambition strived for a safer, bigger, and better-maintained cryptocurrency ecosystem. The official Bitcoin Gold launch took place on the 17th of November 2017.
Bitcoin Gold received support from some of the most popular instant exchange platforms, such as ShapeShift and Changelly. The BTG network has been included in a significant amount of online wallets, including top hardware wallets, mobile, and desktop. Earlier this month the BTG team announced the arrival of the Bitcoin Gold Wallet version 0.15.0.2.
The upgrade also allows users to access the wallet through the operating systems of multiple devices, including ARM server, macOS, and even Raspberry Pi. The new wallet also features improved security protocols.
Bitcoin Gold’s team strives for technological performance excellence and a big and bright community network. Users and fans are now able to interact with each other in a new discussion forum on the coin’s website.
Furthermore, the BTG community started an ambassador program, that aims to add more university training and research, as long as there are more meetups and live conferences.
The team’s dedication and upgrade releases have helped Bitcoin Gold maintain a steady growth rate on the crypto market. Following the significant market volatility of $479.82 per token at the launch date, then a drop-down to $100 at the beginning of November and another price rise to $400 in the middle of the month, it currently trades at $362.50, with a market cap of $6,076,515,405. The highest mark after the launch of the coin was set on the 20th of December 2017 when the Bitcoin Gold price skyrocketed to USD 474 $.
Despite the fluctuations, the crypto market specialists predict a positive future for the cryptocurrency, as hard forks and continuous improvements have a positive effect on demand for the coin and its price on the market.Cryptocurrency coins wallet Bitcoin Gold Bitcoin Gold Price exchange market ecosystem shapeshift platform Changelly
