FAQs

What is the difference between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Gold?

Bitcoin Gold combines the inherent properties of the original Bitcoin blockchain with an innovative approach to blockchain development.

By changing the mining algorithm in favour of miners with smaller operations and more common equipment, Bitcoin Gold is on a mission to 'make bitcoin decentralized again'. Bitcoin Gold’s developers are also focused on improving some of the distribution, protection and transparency issues that have been raised with the original blockchain.
