Freewalet announces Bitcoin Gold First Dedicated Wallet

Cryptocurrency wallet maker - - has announced the first Bitcoin Gold wallet. The company’s portfolios of 20+ crypto wallet platforms now include one that is dedicated to BTG.

Less than a month after Bitcoin Gold forked from Bitcoin a dedicated wallet is available.

Freewallet users who held BTC at the time of the BTG hard fork received the new tokens in their "multi-wallet" as earlier announced by Freewalet. The new wallet, however, is dedicated to BTG and includes the functionality of simple transfers to and from other coins.

According to Freewallet founder Alvin Hagg:

    "That’s the second Bitcoin chain split we’ve supported. And Freewallet managed to provide uninterrupted operations during both of them! When a new cryptocurrency is born, and a new network is launched, it means there’s a great opportunity for our users to get free coins and instant profits. And Freewallet's mission is to make sure they are happy because that’s what makes us happy, too."

Bitcoin Gold had a bumpy start earlier this month due to a coordinated DDOS attack, but the launch went fine after all. Concerns were also raised about replay protection and address format which were fixed shortly later, and the instamine which still raises eyebrows all over the place.
