Bitcoin Gold is a cryptocurrency that was created in October, 2017 in order to restore GPU mining instead of using ASICs that prevail in BTC network. Now Bitcoin Gold is an independent coin with the team of developers, contributors and a unique roadmap, planned up to 2019 year.
Bitcoin Gold mining is built on the Equihash, a Proof-of-Work algorithm, the same that is used for Zcash. It is using the solutions per second or Sol/s metric, which is equal to hashes per second when estimating the profit or your mining power. So there is no big difference between them for mining purposes.
Bitcoin Gold is actively traded on many cryptocurrency exchanges and supported by Trezor and Ledger companies, famous cold wallet devices.
