BTG is a cryptocurrency that resembles Bitcoin in some ways. It can be mined using typical GPUs rather than the specialised ASICs that have tended to take the lion’s share of rewards in mining. BTG’s support for GPU mining put mining back in the hands of everyone and resists the kind of centralisation that cryptocurrencies were always meant to stand against. BTG mining rewards are given out to individuals worldwide, instead of being monopolised by ASIC farm owners, just like in the glory days of bitcoin.
