Today Bitcoin Gold (BTG) has a MC of $2,630,984,532, each are worth $156.47. In the past 24hrs the price has outperformed most jumping almost 50%+.
BTG hard forked from Bitcoin on 24 October 2017, and has survived for months now.
Here was the Coinbase official stance on the matter from last year:
You can see a list of all the major exchanges and wallets that have now implemented support for BTG here which include Bitfinex, Binance, Shapeshift, Ledger, Trezor etc
GDAX Coinbase's exchange is still tagged as "future".
Todays spike is a strange one as there has been a fair amount of community cynicism over BTG in the past.
Some of the controversies outlined on its wiki included post-mining, bonus taking, secret mining code and wallet hacks.
That said when you think about the amount of money being retained by large exchanges such as coinbase from all the forks such as BTG, it ptobably eclipses anything BTG has done value wise. In fact BTG has probably posted more updates than Coinbase on the BTG funds they're holding.
The obvious reminder is always retain your private keys yourself, keep them in a hard wallet away from the exchanges or you'll always run the risk of not being able to benifit frim the growing number of hard forks.
That said, I think many newcomers, particularly using gateway exchanges to buy gateway crypto's have just got to grips with concept of Crypto and buying it.
I can understand how then buying hardware wallets and transferring crypto to them could be a daunting task.
I think for those people, maybe lured in to crypto with the likes of Coinbase referral programs really deserve to get at least regular updates from exchanges that are not supporting forks... how, where, why and when.
Also this doesn't include Airdrops where new ICO cryptos are distributed relative to someones holdings of another Crypto such as Bitcoin or Ethereum... again Exchange hodlers are missing out.
Companies and stock brokers need to keep investors updated when issuing dividends to shareholders,
That helps investors to make the educated decision whither or not to keep their money in invested in that company or not for the longterm.
Exchanges should be doing the same for forked funds.
I think with ever new fork that emerges Coinbase are setting themselves up for future legal challenge of somesort, forcing them to go back and support/ distribute all the forked funds they are holding.
This was evident in the case of Bitcoin Cash as it was only rumors of legal action against them that really seemed to get them to up their game.
This is a the risky cloud that will hang over them, particularly when going out for more rounds of funding their growth, as it's a big question mark future risk investors.
They need to be proactive addressing forked funds, instead of just bottling up a future storm by ignoring them.
All in all forks aren't really Coinbase's fault, but their lack of updates are. They have warned people just to take their crypto off the exchange in the past, but when at the same time as they are priding themselves on and encouraging the sign ups of newcomers that maybe aren't as technically minded I don't think this is enough?
In an article titled “Bitcoin’s natural long-term power-law corridor of growth”, Burger remarked that Bitcoin fits into a natural “power law” price corridor, which has been tightening over time from a logarithmic perspective. It predicts that the BTC price will not reach $1 million until 2028 at the earliest, if at all. In 2017, the price of Bitcoin exploded. Seemingly every few weeks, the cryptocurrency would hit a new price milestone, mounting past $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, and so on in rapid succession. This upward price action led many to make zany predictions. John McAfee, the libertarian cybersecurity guru-turned-cryptocurrency proponent, for instance, argued that by the end of 2020, BTC would […] The Binance Coin is an Ethereum-based token that allows users to receive a discount for any fees on the Binance platform, a pure cryptocurrency exchange that plans to create a decentralized exchange for blockchain assets.
