Bitcoin Gold Release Date Set

2017-11-09 • Joe_Coder

It has been announcede that Bitcoin gold will be going live this weekend! The developers working on the cryptocurrency fork of the Bitcoin Blockchain announced that there would be a release of their formal application client on November 12, almost two weeks after their public launch originally set for Nov. 1.

Coindesk reports that the idea behind Bitcoin Gold is to keep properties on the protocol, but use specialized chips for mining. It will also be among the recent cryptocurrency to be "airdropped" to anyone who has owned bitcoin at the time of the split. 

There has been some critisizm recently about how the team behind Bitcoin Gold has been mining away at block since the network was formed, but word is these funds will be set aside to support development of the network.

I know I will be watching the next few days to see what happens. We've all seen how bitcoin cash has grown over, but can Bitcoin Gold do the same? Only time will tell
