‘Not a cheaper Bitcoin’ — Bitcoin Gold soars 173% as traders may be buying the wrong BTG

A long-forgotten (BTC) hard fork has surged almost 200% in a week — simply because traders are buying the wrong altcoin.

Bitcoin Gold (BTG), a relic from the 2017 forking season, traded at $113 on Friday — the highest price since February 2018 — after 30% daily gains as trading volumes topped $250 million.
