Gathered into "blocks" that are turned into a complex math solution are transactions by users. in order to determine if the transaction is possible, the so-called miners work these solutions using high-powered computers. The transactions are approved and the miners are rewarded in bitcoin and once other miners also check the puzzle is correct.
 
Mining is controlled by a small group of people with powerful computers because of the need for high-end machinery.
 
As a way to change this dynamic, bitcoin gold bitcoin gold was invented by Jack Liao, the CEO of LightningASIC, which sells mining equipment.
 
The idea was to decentralizing the network further and opening it up to a wider user base by allowing bitcoin gold to be mined by more people with less powerful machines.

While other cryptocurrencies like ethereum took a hit too, bitcoin also fell sharply Wednesday before recovering.

What are experts saying about the fork?
 
With respect to whether a fork is good or bad has given rise to differences of opinions within the bitcoin industry.
 
"These forks are very bad for bitcoin. Saturating the market with different versions of bitcoin is confusing to users, and discredits the claim that there are a limited number of bitcoins — since you can always fork it and double the supply," Sol Lederer, blockchain director at Loomia, said on Tuesday.
 
For any cryptocurrency ecosystem, forks are a good, some have said.
 
"If a crypto-community has irreconcilable differences, then you can go your separate ways and that is just fine," Bob Summerwill, chief blockchain developer at Sweetbridge, a company creating blockchain solutions, said in a statement Tuesday.
