warm up your cards guys.
testnet goes smooth, bugs fixed and official announcement of mainnet will be soon.

your mining pool still isn't even running testnet, why is that tell us?

how can anything be ready, when you can't even get testnet to run on your pool?

How do U know? Why didn't U enable testnet on your domain? nirburu?

Perhaps if U ran testnet U would know that is not working

The only pool running testnet is pool.gold, and the payouts are not working, there is no address verification and the pool wants 'G' address but the testnet doesn't generate G-Address.

When I go to the Niburu pool to mine BTG it says "Coming Soon", that isn't what I would call tested and ready.

No mining Bitcoin Gold is not live yet. But it looks like it will be available soon !
The test net has been started yesterday and miners/pool operators are testing the waters right now on them.

You can surely join one of these testnet pools BUT keep in mind that all the coins that you mine in the test net have totally no value even after the main network and the official wallets are introduced. This is just a heads up in order to understand that you can't expect anything out of it.

Regarding how to start to mine, since BTG is equihash, you can use something like EWBF cuda zcash miner. Just point the pools and you should be fine. Look up the forum for the thread.

Anybody knows is there a deadline of Mainnet start? Any countdown timer or so on? I think it will be very profitable in the first hours after starting but I can't find when will it be happen

They haven't declared a final date or something for when the mainnet will go live.

It has wasted us many time.

You practically didn't waste anything since the coin is given away for free anyway.

@bitfools, who told you what we don't run a testnet.
If you do not see it, it does not mean that it does not exist.
If you want a public testnet you can go to pool.gold

I'm mining on testnet solo, I have been mining on pool.gold for weeks, I know what's going on.

Prove to me that your pool has been running testnet? It  hasn't past week 99% of all blocks found on testnet are found by pool.gold, that tells me they're the only folks who are testing.

Pool.Gold is NOT working, they're not paying out testnet coins, this problem has been reported and dev's could care less, if the pools can't payout test coins, how in the hell can they pay out real BTG?

For two weeks now pool.gold has been having people run 400-800K sols/sec on their machines, and nada a payout back to address that is not part of the BTCGPU genesis blocks.

I suspect that you may have run a miner on pool.gold yourself, but I doubt that you have ran your pool on the testnet, perhaps you have no hash-power, which could be why your not getting any of the blocks??

I'm getting many payouts, but they never get back to my 'bgold-cli getbalance', because the software doesn't work.

Go to github read the complaints by live ppl for the past 3+ weeks, learn whats really going on.

I think we were the first who told devs about lack of getblocksubsidy at the first days of testnet.
So I know what you are talking about. But don't separate the panic, you can try config from pool.gold, it works without getblocksubsidy.

unbelievable interest in such a scammy coin

One of the richest ASIC miners in ASIA is behind this coin, so its got the website, the PR, and he's got bitcoin-core by the ball's as he owns +51% by virtue of the fact that CHINA owns +90% of Bitcoin

IMHO what Jack Liao is doing here is making sure that 'IF' GPU takes a bite out of ASIC mining that he owns that too, but he's taken it one step further by having IDIOTS do the DEV, thus OUTCOME here will be that GPU mining gets such a bad rep, that the CHINA-ASIC will rule forever.

No other possible explanation for a Rich Guy to spend a FORTUNE on WEB & MARKETING, but spend nada on development. No sense at all, unless the plan is to destroy the entire notion of BTC mining using the GPU, on the other hand, if mildly sucessful, China will ALSO OWN GPU mining of BTC-GOLD.

***

Let's remind ALL here that BTC-Mining GPU already exists and works, its called BITCOIN-Z.

Only problem for BTZ is that it doesn't have a chinese billionaire shilling for it!

Any data on the profitability of this already? I'm trying to reverse engineer without success. Whattomine didn't help either.

BTG is ONLY testnet at this time, WHATTOMMINE.COM is for real coin, that has real code,

I can't stress enough to people that the code for BTG doesn't exist, that NOTHING works, that this entire project is BULLSHIT.

The only thing real is the exchanges are ripping people off and the chinese hired idiots in BULGARIA to run a website and put SHIT on GITHUB.

Did you check https://github.com/poolgold/z-nomp-bitcoin-gold ?

And there are already a profitability calculator
https://www.crypto-coinz.net/crypto-calculator/
So we can estimate what BTG will be profitable with current price and 100Mh network, testnet now is 1Mh.

theres so many opinion about this coin and they are all interesting, but my right question is:
If the pool start to work and to give real btg to miners, that will be a good coin to mine or a waste of time? i already know theres alot of people with alot of intrest on this coin, but in fact will be proportionally convenient to mine atleast when we can start to mine seriously? i saw the difficulty is already pretty hard for the reward comparison to zchash or other coin  Huh

ps: Thanks for all the answers

Bitcoin Gold works on the Equihash algorithm. Thus, Nvidia cards are certainly the best choice for Bitcoin Gold mining. All GTX graphics cards work with the Equihash algorithm much better than AMD. Find the best GPU for mining visiting hardware market.

can't estimate BTG profitability on difficulty based on a test network, obviously a lot of people aren't wasting their mining power on a coin that isn't worth mining right now.
When it goes live then we'll know the real difficulty and it will be most likely a LOT more than what it is right now on the test network.
