On Tuesday, October 24th at 1:20 am GMT approximately Bitcoin Gold (BTG) was created (or forked) as a new cryptocurrency based on the original Bitcoin Blockchain.
Xapo is handling this fork according to its fork policy, just like we did with the Bitcoin Cash fork.
If you had bitcoins in Xapo at the time of the fork you now also have the same amount of Bitcoin Gold and you are able to see that amount in your Xapo Wallet.
Just like we did with the Bitcoin Cash fork, as soon as we can reliably trade this new currency in reputable exchanges you will be able to convert the total balance of your Bitcoin Gold to your Bitcoin Wallet with only one transaction and one click away.
If you want to keep your BTG you will need to withdraw them from Xapo and send the total balance to a valid external BTG account.
