Bitcoin Gold Hack Shows 51% Attack Is Real - Investopedia

Wed May 30, 2018 9:08 am

Up until now a 51% attack on bitcoin was considered an impossibility.

Increasingly, however, the attack, which involves a hacker gaining control of a majority of systems on bitcoin’s network and altering transactions on its blockchain, is becoming a plausible reality. The latest proof of this comes from bitcoin gold, a bitcoin fork which began trading on exchanges last year. According to a post on one of the cryptocurrency's forums, the hacker is targeting exchanges that trade bitcoin gold. (See also: What Is Bitcoin Gold, Exactly?)
