Bitcoin Gold team announces the core network’s launch date

On November 12, at 19:00 UTC (21:00 Kyiv time), the core network of Bitcoin Gold will become fully functional. BTG reps have made the announcement in their Twitter profile.

According to the data published on the project’s website, users will receive access to the Bitcoin Gold full node client download. At that time, BTG blockchain will go live with the possibility to mine blocks. When wallets and exchanges are ready, they will be able to process trading operations.

Bitcoin Gold developers have added several useful functions and algorithms to the network for its efficient and fast operation. Thus, the per-block difficulty adjustment algorithm has been successfully tested, and full replay protection function has been added. Furthermore, developers have implemented a block explorer and launched a public testnet.

According to the project’s reps, the goal of Bitcoin Gold is to develop a truly decentralized Bitcoin network and simplify mining by using Equihash algorithm.
