What is Bitcoin Gold?
"Bitcoin Gold (BTG) is a cryptocurrency with Bitcoin fundamentals but mined on graphic processing units (GPUs) instead on application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). BTG was created in October 2017 with Bitcoin’s blockchain hard fork, where bitcoin holders were credited with the equivalent amount of BTG on a 1:1 basis.

One hundred thousand BTG were pre-mined. In order to differentiate from Bitcoin, Bitcoin Gold has changed the format of its addresses to prevent confusion with Bitcoin addresses and a consequent loss of coins when making a transaction. BTG was created as an experiment to make Bitcoin mining more decentralized. Bitcoin Gold implemented a new Proof-of-Work algorithm called Equihash, which made specialised mining equipment obsolete."
