Jaxx, the popular multi-currency crypto wallet and the ShapeShift platform are not going to support Bitcoin Gold. 

Thus, in particular, the representatives of ShapeShift announce that they do not plan to add a brand new token to the platform via Twitter.

Quite a similar statement was made by the Jaxx project team. 

As the company details, it does not plan to support Bitcoin Gold in Jaxx, however, "monitoring the situation closely and with great interest".

The main reason for not showing support for the new forked cryptocurrency is the same as for other companies, namely the lack of  fully formed consensus code, as well as the lack of implemented replay protection.

OKEx reported on the imminent delisting of all Bitcoin Gold (BTG) futures contracts, including weekly, two-week and quarterly contracts. As the reason for this decision, the exchange refers to the “insufficient liquidity” of the financial instrument.

All BTG futures contracts will be calculated on 9am, Jan 25, 2019 (CET, UTC+1) in accordance with the price fixed in the BTG / USD index on OKEx an hour before.

In addition, on January 30, all data on BTG futures trading will be deleted, and therefore the exchange recommends that users who may need this data download them in advance.

Bitcoin Gold separated from the main bitcoin blockchain in November 2017. Last May, the cryptocurrency network was attacked by 51%, during which 388,000 BTG (about $ 18 million) were stolen from several exchanges. Currently, Bitcoin Gold is the 27th largest cryptocurrency with a capitalization of $ 195 million.
