On Sunday, November 12, a bit later the planned time, the main Bitcoin Gold network was launched.

Bitcoin Gold is now Live, having survived a massive and concerted attack from its first moment of existence. Big events attract big attenion, but it’s sometimes the unwanted kind! A massive attack was made in an apparent effort to disrupt the mainnet launch, but the Bitcoin Gold team managed to get the network up and running… albeit a little later than planned.
 

Bitcoin Gold Team

According to representatives of Bitcoin Gold, the project is aimed at creating a truly "decentralized bitcoin". It is claimed that by using the Equihash algorithm, which makes it easier to extract bitcoins with graphics cards, the mining will be available to a larger number of participants, and the influence of large companies will be reduced accordingly.

Initially in the Bitcoin Gold road map it was indicated that the project intends to launch the main network and provide the opportunity for the new cryptocurrency to be mined on November 1, but later the terms were moved.
