Bitcoin Gold (BTG) Mining Pool

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.

Read about upcoming BTG network update
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.

Bitcoin Gold Mining Benchmarks Comparison

For maximum efficiency consider using NVIDIA (from GeForce 1060 to 1080 Ti) or AMD (Radeon RX 580 or Vega64, for example) latest GPUs, a suitable PSU (Power Supply Unit) to have enough electrical power for all connected cards and enough USB risers for them. Also, Bitcoin Gold mining speed is based on the amount of RAM that you have.
