It is a new cryptocurrency that is known as BTG or it is called bitcoin gold, It is a part of the original Bitcoin, which was the first launch in the year 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin Community definition for bitcoin gold “BTG is a community activated hard fork of Bitcoin to make mining decentralized again.” The inventor of bitcoin gold is a team of developer’s miners and their head Jack Liao, the CEO of the LightningAsic, A hong-kong based mining manufacturing company. The team have one another lead developer of Bitcoin gold who named as h4x3rotab, he/she gave a definition “Bitcoin Gold is also called a real blockchain to Upgrades pilot Bitcoin.” Why this bitcoin gold was created? The reason behind its creation because of it’s without any consensus voting, it was being driven by a few people who believe that the original bitcoin mining system has become centralized and monopolized by a handful of mining companies. The founders of bitcoin gold have believed all these things because of ASIC miners, which have made almost impossible for GPU miners like you and me to mine Bitcoins. And after this, these hard fork supporters want to make Bitcoin mining decentralized by hard forking the existing bitcoin i.e. creating a new bitcoin using an algorithm Features of Bitcoin Gold Bitcoin Gold (BTG) has following features given below 1. Bitcoin Gold will always base on Equihash which means that it will be GPUminable. 2. Bitcoin Gold is a direct fork of Bitcoin, which means that it will have an inbuilt replay projection. 3. Bitcoin Gold will have a variable difficulty that will change per block, which is a good thing for GPU miners. 4. Bitcoin Gold will have a pool of pre-mined coins for around 16,000 blocks Apart from this, there will be no changes. It is also important to that Bitcoin Gold will be following this suit of the original Bitcoin core developers for the future perspective of their coin. Reasons why “Bitcoin Gold” failed miserably 1.

After published this software, some users claimed that they received emails containing links to fake email clients. 3. According to some sources, there are lots of issues in the codes of BTG programming, as Bitcoin Gold does not have completely formed consensus code, implemented replay protection, auditing, and testing. 4.

Bitcoin price recovered a little with trading around $4300 to $4400. Yesterday the price of bitcoin fell up to $4190. Ethereum is still trading at a year and a half low of $125. Apart from ethereum, most altcoins are showing small corrections. Bitcoin Cash moved 3% upwards while Monero has moved 4% upwards in the last 24 hours. Bitcoin Gold and Bitcoin Diamond have had good gains for the day with 8% and 16% rise. IOTA is trading at around $0.32 which shows a 6% improvement from yesterday’s price. NEO is up by 5%. However, the small gains are nothing in front of the massive downtrend these altcoins went through in the past couple of days. Cryptocurrency Market Capitalization Improved The total cryptocurrency market cap yesterday came down up to $136 billion which was the lowest of 2018. In the last 24 hours, cryptocurrency market has managed to add $4 billion in the market capitalization adding to $140 billion. Over the last week, the cryptocurrency market had lost over $40 billion and over the last month, around $70 billion have been erased from the cryptocurrency market capitalization which is yet to be recovered. Bearish predictions for bitcoin While the market cap is trying to recover the price predictions for bitcoin still remain bearish as many cryptocurrency analysts have predicted that the only support after the current significant support of $4000 is at $3000. So if the price drops below $4000, it will definitely reach down to $3000 after which the price is expected to recover. The overall situation of the market is still harsh as there is no major recovery from the massive losses that occurred in the past few days.

Craig Wright who claims to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto and the founder of the original bitcoin has been funding his side of the war using BTC. Cryptocurrency enthusiasts around the world are criticizing Craig Wright and also calling him a lier. To all BTC miners… If you switch to mine BCH, we may need to fund this with BTC, if we do, we sell for USD and, well… we think BTC market has no room… it tanks. Think about it. We will sell A Lot! Consider that…. And, have a nice day (BTC to 1000 does not phase me) pic.twitter.com/oUScEahtWc — Dr Craig S Wright (@ProfFaustus) November 14, 2018 Oh. And @JihanWu and @rogerkver selling… they will also have to sell BTC to pay rented hash. If this is a long war… expect 2014 prices in BTC… think what that does… Have a nice day — Dr Craig S Wright (@ProfFaustus) November 14, 2018 The local media’s role The real reason behind the rise of cryptocurrency and blockchain was the mass adoption by people who heard about it through local media. At that time, the local media described bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as the future of money explaining the decentralized nature of such currencies, but now due to the wars within the cryptocurrency ecosystem, the local media has started to criticize cryptos and people have started to lose faith in the crypto market. If the amount of money being used in such hash wars would have instead been used for the development of the crypto ecosystem with advancements such as lightning network, the market could still be flourishing rather than being on the verge of getting sunk.
