Just two months following the hard fork that released Bitcoin Gold into the crypto world, the currency has made its way to 46 markets on 26 exchanges.

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 an 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 programme, 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 os $479.82 per token at the launch date, then a drop down to $100 at the beginning of November and another price rice 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 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 of demand for the coin and its price on the market.
