Bitcoin Gold is a hard fork of Bitcoin, that occurred on October 25, 2017, on block 491,407. BTG was developed to introduce the ASIC resistant PoW mining algorithm, brining back mining to PC owners; the stated purpose for the fork was to “make Bitcoin (mining) decentralized again.” This has been achieved by using Equihash proof-of-work algorithm (Equihash-BTG) first adopted by Zcash instead of "original" Bitcoin's SHA-256.
Any person can mine BTG with readily available graphics cards; the ASICs (special devices for mining) can't be used since the algorithm uses more memory such devices have. Besides this, the team behind BTG is working on several major improvements of the protocol, not related to mining. Most notably, the Plasma: Scalable Autonomous Smart Contracts will be supported in a foreseen future.
