14 November 2017   1786

Bitcoin hardware wallet TREZOR made an announcement on November 13 that it is going to add Bitcoin Gold to the list of coins that it already supports, stating that the reason for it is that Bitcoin Gold has released their source code.

TREZOR is currently working on developing BTG support, and the users will be able to split their Bitcoin Gold form Bitcoin once TREZOR claim tool is ready, taking into consideration that users stored their BTC on Trezor before block 491407.

At this moment the currencies which TREZOR supports are Bitcoin, Ethereum (and all ERC-20 tokens), Ethereum Classic, ZCash, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, Dash, Namecoin, Dogecoin, and Bitcoin Testnet.

Previously, TREZOR was in the list of companies which did not show support for Bitcoin Gold, which forked from Bitcoin on October 24. On October 23, Satoshi Labs, the makers of the hardware wallet TREZOR, made a statement about the upcoming Bitcoin Gold fork claiming that the company was not yet ready to support Bitcoin Gold. Nevertheless, now things changed.

At the present moment, Bitcoin Gold is gradually losing its positions, having fallen down by 23% within past 24 hours and being traded at the price of $205 with 24h volume of $41 million.

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.
