We inform you that Bitcoin Gold has successfully conducted a hard fork and migrated to Equihash-BTG, a new Proof-of-Work algorithm. The hard fork has been aimed at ensuring the ASIC-resistance of the network, as well as minimizing the risk of “51% attack” by cutting off rental hashpowers with mining personalization improvements.
MinerGate is fully supporting the Bitcoin Gold hard fork, however currently only third-party software can mine after-fork BTG through our mining pool. To continue mining BTG with third-party software, you need to keep it updated to the latest after-fork version.
The release of the MinerGate GUI application with support of BTG mining is planned for the next week.
