Bitcoin Gold Network Upgrade

Our Network Upgrade plans are progressing steadily, and the BTG blockchain continues to function normally.

Countdown timer and full details here

Our Network Upgrade is scheduled for block height (536200), roughly July 1st, 2018.

This Upgrade will be a hard fork, which simply means that software upgrades for full nodes and miners are mandatory. (No new coin will be created.)

This Upgrade implements Equihash-BTG as our new PoW algorithm and deploys an improved Difficulty Adjustment Algorithm. No changes are made to the coin supply or the rate of coin creation (miner rewards.)

Partners including Exchanges, Wallet Providers, Pool Operators, and Miners can find important details on our GitHub, here: Full Upgrade Specification / Guide
