The Bitcoin Gold (BTG) team has announced the official launch time for the mainnet (currently on testnet) when the mining of the coin will become possible and its actual integration into exchanges and hopefully coin distribution and coins being possible to claim by Bitcoin owners that held BTC at the day of the blockchain snapshot. The official start date for start of Bitcoin Gold is set for 12th November (7:00 UTC) when the download of Bitcoin Gold full node client will be made available. The BTG blockchain will officially go live and the mining will begin and wallets and exchanges will be able to process deposits, withdrawals and trades (as soon as they are ready). We are still going to have to wait a couple of more days or more for larger exchanges to evaluate the software and decide should they add support for BTG and distribute Bitcoin Gold coins to their users that had BTC available at the time of the blockchain snapshot.

Update: The launch time was moved from the initially announced 7:00 UTC to 19:00 UTC.
