That attack was stopped but still doable very cheap.

The cost right now is just 507 USD and you dont need to have miners, you can do all trough NiceHash.

BitcoinZ cost would be just 44usd on NiceHash but it trades shitty places not Binance like BTG.

Its possible that some exchanges will start dropping the coin since its not first time.
