Bitcoin Gold node and explorer

Connect to BTG node to enjoy the best developer blockchain!

The goal of creating BTG is ambitious – namely, to completely replace Bitcoin and take the place of digital gold. They wanted to achieve this by decentralization of mining. This means that in the new system, everyone who does not want to mine the currency can independently determine the block size of the coin. By default, it is equal to one megabyte.

It should be noted that BTG is the only fork of bitcoin that can be mined using only a graphics processor, thanks to the implementation of the less demanding (than the usual SHA-256) Equihash algorithm.

Here are some of BTG’s major advantages:

  • ASIC bypass

    Bitcoin Gold is protected from using ASIC devices. All this was undertaken by developers for the sake of one: to avoid the monopoly of developers and manufacturers of ASIC equipment. The cost of bitcoin gold was formed and is formed from one parameter – opportunities and demand among miners.

  • Equality

    BTG is designed with equal opportunity in mind. Unlike Bitcoin, it is easier and actually can be effective and profitable to mine BTG with a GPU miner.

  • Increased decentralization

    Due to the ability to be mined with GPUs, the Bitcoin Gold cryptocurrency does not require very expensive equipment like ASIC miners to be mined. This increases decentralization.
