Bitcoin Gold is a hard fork of Bitcoin. Its major feature is the change of Bitcoin’s proof-of-work algorithm from SHA256 to Equihash, which made application-specific integrated circuit boards (ASICs) designed for mining Bitcoin unable to work with BTG at rapid speed. This means that BTG can be fairly mined with ubiquitous GPUs.
