‘Digital Gold’ Crypto Asset BitGesell Announces Listing on Hotbit Exchange

Bitcoin press release: With its latest listing on the HotBit Exchange, BitGesell coin (BGL) continues to prove that a decentralized architecture designed to overcome Bitcoin’s shortcomings will have the support of stakeholders in a crypto ecosystem, betting on intrinsic features like transactional coin burning that can establish BGL as true digital gold.

11th June 2020, Amsterdam, NetherlandsCrypto asset BitGesell is quickly shaping up to be one of this year’s most promising projects, focusing on practical application with incentive propositions that appeal directly to miners, investors and network participants.

Its latest listing on popular crypto exchange HotBit Exchange is only the latest milestone for BGL, now allowing better access via trading on the open market, to allow more people to experience what it really means to own digital gold.

Is Bitcoin really the digital version of gold?

While Bitcoin’s role is firmly established in the cryptocurrency industry, foremost as the  world’s most liquid digital asset, there remain questions as to what its true purpose could be in the near future.

Throughout its evolution over a short 11 years of existence, the symbolic father of crypto has carried several different tags. And as Bitcoin changed its form, community and found new and different uses, so have the meanings of these tags changed.

If Bitcoin was originally the peer-to-peer digital money that people would use to send to each other as payment for goods and services, today, that usage has arguably moved away to cheaper and faster alternatives as scalability issues that have plagued Bitcoin from the beginning have not been fully addressed.

Even up to 2017, it was still possible to send Bitcoin transactions with little to no fees, but each time the network experiences a surge in activity, just as it has been since May 2020, congestion has led to fee wars, as Bitcoin users bid to have miners include their transactions for confirmations before others.

According to some sources, average Bitcoin fees in 2020 grew more than 2,200%. Second-layer solutions like Lightning Network have seen some success in speedy and cheap transactions, but at the cost of taking the transaction off-chain. Lightning Network solutions, along with Segregated Witness introduced in 2017, have also a long way to come in mass adoption, with most major service providers and client wallets yet to be compatible with these.

Bitcoin’s situation also becomes less obvious even when taking into account Lightning Network and scalability uptakes. For miners, halved block rewards, compounded with negligible fees over Lightning, and increased block size from SegWit, mean that miner costs can no longer be covered by block subsidies or fees. Miners will be forced to switch off, leading to network difficulty decreases in the long term.

Why BGL scarcity is the real deal in deflationary digital gold

BitGesell Head Developer Emma Wu outlines how BGL has addressed each of Bitcoin’s shortcomings, ensuring that it is designed especially to fit the digital gold premise of maintaining and growing in value over the long term.

In particular, the programmed burn feature of BGL, whereby 90% of every transaction fee sent to miners will be irrecoverably destroyed. This isn’t just a promise of buyback and token burns, like most projects do, relying on centralized decisions to burn tokens. This is a hard-coded programming that forces burning to happen with every transaction.

Token burning is a proven token economics model that uses basic supply and demand principles. In this economics model, when supply is decreased, and demand remains, price equilibrium will become higher. Essentially, every BGL transaction increases the scarcity of the coin, thereby increasing its price equilibrium and giving it more value in dollar terms.

Compare this to gold, which rate of extraction is a very low 1.8% annually, or to national currencies which are entering unprecedented money printing to infinity. With all the world’s major assets and currencies, inflation is happening at a steady pace. Bitcoin was designed as a deflationary currency because of its rigid supply constraint, which is the basic fundamental of Bitcoin’s utility and demand: there will only ever be 21 million Bitcoin. 

And because BGL is built off the Bitcoin source code, there is also only ever going to be a maximum possible amount of 21 million BGL. But because Bitcoin has technical shortcomings like halvings once only every four years, and low-transaction fees, it’s scarcity factor will play out over decades.

However, with BGL, the deflationary pressure is quicker with token burning and shorter halving times and smaller blocks, seeing a max supply of 21 million BGL ever mined in just a few years, after which, max supply can only drop with transaction burning.

In details:

  1. Smaller block sizes (10% Bitcoin block size), combined with higher transaction fees, ensure that miners are well compensated, and that only large transactions take place, promoting holding and keeping supply tight.
  2. Increased scarcity measures by token burning. 90% of all transaction fees in BGL will be permanently destroyed, ensuring that even more of the fixed supply is removed with every transaction. 
  3. Community wallet specified in genesis block itself. A community wallet has been specified in the very first BitGesell block mined, and will receive funds to be distributed for further project growth, placed as a message: “Your support helps ecosystem keep growing. bgl1qkecxxg8ekyruwkkhea7ye5c0ganmhdl7d5nna3”.

The balance and transactions of this wallet can be viewed publicly on the blockchain, with the usage of funds there reported periodically to the community. This is BGL’s statement of commitment for building and expanding BGL infrastructure.

  1. Annual halving to achieve a max supply of 21 million coins and zero emissions like BTC, but in a fraction of the time.

While Bitcoin holders today will never live to see the day Bitcoin achieves zero emissions and lives up to its digital gold tag, BitGesell holders need only wait a few years to see Bitcoin the way its economic model described it to be.

Digital Asset Bitgesell Provides the Perfect Ecosystem to Become Digital Gold

Bitcoin Press Release: Emerging digital asset Bitgesell has developed a practical ecosystem, and long-term solution for the digital gold debate. The project overcomes issues plagued by Bitcoin to make it an extremely attractive proposition to holders, miners, and businesses

18th May 2020, Amsterdam, Netherlands – Digital asset and cryptocurrency Bitgesell is a new project geared towards practical application, and offers a more attractive proposition to cryptocurrency miners and holders, than any similar alternatives. The Bitgesell ecosystem has been designed to ensure that it is practical, and suitable as a long-term digital investment option.

Why Bitcoin is Not a True Digital Gold

Bitcoin continues to be the foremost leader in the digital currency market, and has always defined what cryptocurrencies are. However, it is faced by a number of issues that have not been conclusively addressed:

  • Excessive Computational Power: Distributed nodes and miners keep any blockchain secure by ensuring that there is never enough computational power in a single control. Bitcoin has surpassed this level long ago. Today, only a fraction of the computer power is enough to secure the network.
  • Low Commissions in Future: In the future, when all of Bitcoin is mined, miners will rely on transaction fee. A little reward will be sufficient to keep miners in profit. However, the segwit based lightning network can also lead to miners moving away from Bitcoin as the transaction earnings can become so low, it would not be practical to keep working on the network.
  • Slower Scarcity : Bitcoin currently halves its block rewards nearly every four years. This scarcity and the level of new BTC mined means that block reward will reach zero roughly in 2140. For the true rise in value of Bitcoin, holders still have to wait 120 years.

Bitgesell Head Developer, Emma Wu explains one of the benefits that Bitgesell offers over Bitcoin: 

“Bitgesell can be perceived as a future of bitcoin, because of its smaller block size, how segwit extension would be developing (lightning network) and due to halving occurring each year, only after 2-3 years we will witness the future of bitcoin, not having to wait for 11 years.”

Bitgesell: The Better Bitcoin

The next stage in the evolution of Bitcoin, Bitgesell is the right step towards a digital gold model. A digital asset that is geared towards holding, it is a precisely calculated ecosystem that is predictable and reasonable.

  • Higher Transaction Cost: Setting a higher limit for transaction cost serves dual purpose of ensuring that only large amounts of coins are transacted, giving incentive for people to hold and increasing the demand while lowering he supply in the market, and ensuring that after all coins have been mined, miners are still in a profitable position, making the network secure.
  • 90% Burn: Coins in circulation are reduced at a fast paced level through burning 90% of transaction fee. This means that Bitgesell will see an increased value of remaining coins as the supply is lowered.
  • Halving Each Year: Where Bitcoin takes on an average 4 years, Bitgesell will half every year, further reducing the coins available and achieving zero emissions in a span of a few years.
  • Fully Segwit Supported: Bitgesell is a network that has fully implemented the segwit protocol. The network is fast enough to withstand any kind of load and transactions will be confirmed at lightning speeds.

The BGL coin powers the Bitgesell as a medium of holding and exchange. Like its Bitcoin counterpart, there will be 21,000,000 BLG ever produced. With a block weight of less than 400,000 bytes, it is 10 times smaller than Bitcoin, making it lighter and faster. Download Bitgesell now on Windows, Linux, or MacOS X
