Majority of Bitcoin Gold (BTG) miners try to fix a bug in the chain by cancelling and replaying the last 1300 blocks. Fix partly fails because malicious centralized dev posts new release with secret protocol-violating hack
showerthought: The change Core made from a currency to "digital gold" is FAR more radical than the change Bitcoin Cash made from 1MB(+0.4) blocks to a max size of 32MB, which is really up to the choice of the miners, to stay a currency.
Bitcoin Gold Suffers Its 2nd and 3rd 51 Percent Attacks Over Two Years. The miners saw to it that approximately $72,000 in BTG funds were double spent. This is money in their pockets after they gained control of the network’s hash rate.
"Bitcoin Gold got 51% attacked. Miners have no issue with attacking BTG because if it dies, they could easily switch to mine another coin that also uses Equihash POW. This is not the case for Bitcoin/Litecoin" - Charlie Lee on Twitter
Unpopular opinion: Social consensus would not be able to change the properties of gold, and social consensus should not dictate Bitcoin's path either. This is why miners vote on rules like the whitepaper says, and they should often defy social consensus if we want Bitcoin to be a true sound money.
Irony/Comedy Gold: bitcoin.org: "Note that Bitcoin is not ruled by miners, and miner actions cannot be used as a justification to redefine Bitcoin", Bitcoin Whitepaper: "The proof-of-work also solves the problem of determining representation in majority decision making."
You really can't make this shit up. I'm actually astonished Core has managed to get so far with any considerable following with clearly and blatantly anti-Bitcoin stances intensifying every step of the way. They've made it official - they're trying to destroy Bitcoin as defined by Satoshi Nakamoto in the whitepaper, anyone who doesn't see this by now has to have mush instead of a brain. WOW, that's some high level trolling of a $72 Billion network. Can't believe this is happening actually. sources: bitcoin.orgBitcoin Whitepaper [page 3]
Once extracted we can configure the miner by editing the start.bat file to set our Bitcoin Gold address, as well as set our mining pool. The choices for Bitcoin Gold mining pools are: BTG Pool Pro (1% fee) Bitcoin Gold Pool (0.9% fee) Pool Gold (1% fee, 0.01BTG min. payout) For this guide we will use BTG Pool Pro. FOR MINERS Anyone can mine BTG with readily available graphics cards. Bitcoin Gold uses Equihash-BTG, also known as Equihash(144,5) or Zhash. This version of Equihash uses more memory than an ASIC can muster, but runs fine on many graphics cards - maybe even one already in your computer! Another option was ASIC miner. The most affordable models are Innosilicon A9 ZMaster and Antminer Z9 mini by Bitmain. BTG has updated the mining algorithm to Equihash 144,5 at block 536200 at the 3rd of July to prevent the ASIC-mining. Equihash 144.5 is the ASIC resistant algorithm so Bitcoin Gold is mined only with GPU’s at the moment. Gold Bullion buying using bitcoin is simpler than you really think. I figured out a very particular approach to utilize my bitcoin to purchase gold bullion automatically each and every month.
