Bitcoin Gold was produced after a Hard Fork from the Bitcoin blockchain. Bitcoin Gold is the ASIC resistant version of Bitcoin. Bitcoin Gold can be mined using GPU miners, dedicated processors are inefficient after a specific threshold.
It was one of the firsts of the many Forks carried out on Bitcoin after the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) fork. The fork occurred at a block height of 491,407. The vision with Bitcoin Gold was to restore the original vision of Bitcoins with cheaper, faster transactions and feasible mining.
BTG coin is available to trade on multiple exchanges like Bithumb, Bitfinex, Binance, Gate.io, etc. Bitcoin Gold uses SIGHASH_FORK_ID replay protection. It enforces a new algorithm which calculates the hash of a transaction & provides a two-way Replay Protection Mechanism. This protects users from malicious attacks. It prevents transaction replay & funds loss by making transactions on one chain invalid on others.
