Bitcoin Gold has just implemented a solution called SIGHASH_FORK_ID replay protection. It is an effective two-way replay protection mechanism that enforces a new algorithm to calculate the hash of a transaction so that all new Bitcoin transactions will be invalid on Bitcoin Gold blockchain and vice versa. This makes replaying transactions impossible.
According to official statement, these are the next steps:
- Launch public testnet
- Adjust network parameters
- Prepare for mainnet launch
- Deploy mainnet
- Electrum fork
- 3rd party Wallets and Exchanges integration
- Decentralized mining start
