    Can someone explain the upcoming BTC fork? What it means, what to expect, etc? Searched around but haven't found anything that spelled it out really clearly

    Both I guess, or just what in general is happening.

    Gold is a ZCash wannabe with a premining scam tacked onto the front.
    Seriously, what does it do that ZCash doesn't? Equihash, ZKSnark.
    Just repeating rumor, I have no clue what any of this stuff means...

    Just the creation of two new scam altcoins. Calling them forks is disingenuous.

    BTC is unstoppable and will not be overtaken by any alt. Improvements will happen via lightning network, not the creation of goofy alts.

    By its very definition, they are forks (altcoins).
