Bitcoin Gold Hacked for $18 Million
« on: May 25, 2018, 06:46:00 am »
It appears Bitcoin Gold (BTG) has been double spend attacked over and over again, totalling something in the neighborhood of $18 million at current prices. BTG forums seem to have been tracking the hack, going as far back as last week, monitoring the controversial coin’s hashrate, ultimately determining a 51% attack was under way.

Can't say I'm surprised. These forks are prime targets for hack. With a hack like this, the price is definitely going to plummet. Hopefully there are not a lot of people who are holding this coin. People should make sure to be careful about the coins that they invest in. There will be a lot of burned investors from this who will be losing a whole lot of money due to this hack.

Haha may be true in this case.. I'd say like someone else mentioned that these forks are especially susceptible to these sort of attacks.. I'm actually surprised it took this long.
