info_outline What is BSV



BSV Short Description

Bitcoin SV (BSV) started in November 2018 as a hard fork of Bitcoin Cash, which itself was a hard forked version of the original Bitcoin. BSV was one of two coins that emerged from the hard fork, with Bitcoin Cash ABC as the other coin created from the event.

Upon creation of Bitcoin SV, Bitcoin cash holders who had their private keys or kept their Bitcoins on a service that supported the split were able to receive equal amounts of Bitcoin SV and Bitcoin Cash ABC, resulting in further divergence in Bitcoin price dynamics. The Bitcoin SV team said that its vision is to restore the Bitcoin protocol to its original design.

Bitcoin SV also enables massive scaling, which its team says will pave the way for the BSV blockchain to support significantly higher transaction volumes and more transaction fees for miners. This is important for miners to maintain profitability as the block reward will halve again in the year 2020 (reducing from 12 BSV to 6.25 BSV for each block), and halve again in later years.Bitcoin price..

BSV Product description


When the world of cryptocurrencies came into existence through the birth of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto was the visionary who laid down the mission of the technology in his whitepaper ‘’Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”. As the technology evolved and many other cryptocurrencies made their way into the crypto-world, the technology deviated greatly from its main course. Bitcoin Blockchain has been broken down into smaller factions, each offering its own version of the Bitcoin. Bitcoin encountered its first hard fork on August 2017 and with it ‘Bitcoin Cash (BCH)’ rose to stage. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) was developed with the aim of solving the scalability issue of technology and creating a more efficient replacement. Note that Bitcoin Cash (BCH) did not(!) replace Bitcoin (BTC).
After some time, the Bitcoin Cash community felt that the technology had deviated from the Bitcoin Cash vision as defined in the whitepaper from the original Bitcoin (BTC). Once the Bitcoin Cash fork happened, Bitcoin SV (BSV) (SV stands for Satoshi Vision) and Bitcoin ABC (BCHABC) (ABC stands for Adjustable Blocksize Cap) were born (SFOX, 2018). According to the official spokesperson, Bitcoin SV is the restoration of the original technology. It aims to return to the original plan and vision of Satoshi by working for a completely decentralized network and using the cryptocurrency solely as a tool for payment and trade exchange (ChangeNow, 2018).



Bitcoin SV is a relatively new entrant to the crypto market as it had its foundation recently set up. The team has not yet focused on developing any product of theirs that runs on the Bitcoin SV blockchain. The collective focus of the team, now, is at the restoration of the original protocols of Bitcoin and developing those protocols to address the issues of scalability and security.



The main spokesperson for Bitcoin SV is Craig Wright while the technology is pursuing the main foundation principles of Satoshi Nakamoto. Not surprisingly, Craig Wright has claimed that he is, in fact, Satoshi Nakamoto, the original creator of Bitcoin. He did not stop there, he has also strengthened his position by winning US copyright registrations for Bitcoin’s original (Bambrough, 2019). The Bitcoin SV project is owned by the Bitcoin Foundation on behalf of the BSV community.
Note: If Craig Wright had developed Bitcoin, he should have access to the keys that store the earliest Bitcoins, which would’ve been mined on his computer. These coins never moved in Bitcoin's history.


How things stand for BSV


Bitcoin SV’s inception was marked both by a highlight and a scandal for the technology. In August 2018, in trying to pursue the actualization of nChain and Coin Geek, Bitcoin Cash forked and two separate communities namely Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV came in to being. Bitcoin SV’s leadership and the community, on the whole, were hostile in their dealings as they made repeated aggressive attempts to practically wipe out Bitcoin Cash’s supposedly deviated technology by taking all of its hashing power. The community was adamant to compel Bitcoin’s original community to accept the Satoshi Vision by force. This crypto-civil-war went on for around a week before both technologies decided that they had considerable representation in form of their community and they should focus on sustaining that (SFOX, 2018).
Another major highlight for Bitcoin SV came in May 2019, when the cryptocurrency surged more than 120 percent. This was partly due to the rather surprising development as the founder, Craig White, succeeded in ‘proving’ himself as the original Satoshi Nakamoto and registering the Bitcoin white paper’s copyrights to his name (Ouimet, 2019).



Bitcoin SV’s technical developments are based on the original Bitcoin whitepaper. The code development included restoring the Blockchain network in its original form, bring back the old protocols and improving the transactional performance of the cryptocurrency. The main code of development has been done under the leadership of Daniel Connolly and Steve Shadders (Bitcoin SV, 2018).


BSV Pro/Contra

Transactions per second After the upgrade of the Bitcoin Protocol on July 2019, the Bitcoin SV developers reported, that there was a massive increase in the processing speeds. Bitcoin SV can reportedly handle 1000+ transactions per second.
Transaction speed After the recent upgradation of the Bitcoin Protocol in July 2019, there was a massive increase in the processing speeds.
Transaction cost Contrary to the high transaction fees of the original Bitcoin, Bitcoin SV now costs less than one-fifth of a cent.
Decentralization Since Bitcoin SV aims to revive the original values of Bitcoin, decentralization is amongst their primary focuses.
Security Relatively low. The coin is relatively new/unproven.
Adoption After Craig White claimed that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, many people were not impressed with the claim and labeled him a scam. While Bitcoin SV did surge following this news, there were many big exchanges that de-listed the cryptocurrency from their sites, including Kraken, Binance and Shapeshift.
Energy consumption There is no official data that reveals the energy consumption of the Bitcoin SV network. But since the technology is based on the original Bitcoin, there is a high possibility that it will be energy-intensive.
Product availability Although Bitcoin SV saw improvements in its latest upgrades, the protocol is still a work in progress and is not fully developed.
Exchange availability Bitcoin SV is not available on leading trade exchanges like Kraken, Binance, bittrex, etc. It is, however, still available on a number of trade exchanges including Poloniex and Huobi Global.
Privacy Transactions with this coin are pseudonymous.

BSV Foresight


The market has a mixed opinion about Bitcoin SV. The technology will and probably may not survive, mainly because of the reputation of Bitcoin SV’s founder Craig Wright who is deemed as a scam by many.



Bitcoin SV is a project in itself, started by the Bitcoin community, nChain, and CoinGeek. The project aims to restore the original values and core values of Bitcoin as envisioned by Satoshi Nakamoto. The end goal of the project is to develop the technology towards ‘Genesis’, which is the full restoration and implementation of the Bitcoin Protocol.



The technology might not be as successful in the short-term since the development of the protocol is still underway, but it has shown potential for growth in the following years.


BSV Business Case


Bitcoin SV claims that it is in fact, the original Bitcoin. So, simply put, the original Bitcoin is considered to be a substitute for this technology, because what this technology offers is basically a restored version of the original Bitcoin.



Concerning the official website of Bitcoin SV, the cryptocurrency has made a number of valuable partnerships in the market. A number of cryptocurrency wallets like Atomic Wallets, BC Bitcoin, Bitaddress, etc. host Bitcoin SV (among other cryptocurrencies) while many exchanges, although not the widely used ones offer trading of Bitcoin SV. As the technology strengthens its holdings, a lot of people are becoming interested and new partnerships are being announced. Recently, DriveMarkets’ CEO, Kate Hiscox, revealed that they will be partnering with Bitcoin SV to launch out DRIVE Pay (Editor, 2019). Also, Bitcoin SV will be sponsoring the International Professional Pool Association this year, opening doors for many opportunities for the real-life application and implementation of the technology (Tonin, 2019).



One of the biggest advantages Bitcoin SV has over its competitors is the fact that it is backed by the Bitcoin Association, the largest and the oldest community that promotes the Bitcoin technology. The community as a whole supports the original vision behind Bitcoin and is working towards bringing into fruition the vision of the original version of the Blockchain.



The development team features many experts in Blockchain technology. The Lead Developer is Daniel Connolly, while Steve Shadders is serving as the Technical Director, overseeing every technical aspect of the improvement on Bitcoin SV. The team also has a pool of engineers who are skilled and are experts in C++ and Bitcoin protocol. Additional support and backup are also provided by nChain.
