    Choose the amount of BTG you'd like to sell.
  3. Complete your transaction.
    Confirm the sell price and fees and close your sale of Bitcoin Gold.

What to consider when buying Bitcoin Gold

Buying cryptocurrency can be a risky endeavor, but there are precautions you can take to help mitigate risk:

  • Don't FOMO buy coins: Spend time researching a coin before you decide to invest, particularly if the coin's price is spiking for seemingly no reason.
  • Stick with well known exchanges: Unless you're an experienced cryptocurrency trader, stick to more well known crypto exchanges to help avoid the possibility of losing your money in a scam. When possible, store your crypto on a hardware wallet instead of on an exchange.
  • Look into the coin's founders and developers: Anonymous teams are often a red flag, so if you can't find details on the creator of the coin you may want to consider investing in a different cryptocurrency.

Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin Gold, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of BTG is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision.

      Hi Ross,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      It may still be too soon after the fork for cash to be supported by any exchanges It may be challenging to find out who offers cash purchases that also supports BTG.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold

      Hi Bismarck,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      The organizers of the Segwit2x (B2X) hard fork announced that they were putting the plans on hold due to a lack of consensus among the community.
      Please refer to the beginner’s guide to bitcoin fork to get additional information about this update.

      Cheers,
      Joanne
