Bitcoin SV is the result of a lot of drama on the BTC blockchain.
It all began when Bitcoin suffered a hard fork in 2017 — splitting the network and resulting in the creation of a new altcoin called Bitcoin Cash.
A year later, in 2018, Bitcoin Cash suffered a hard fork of its own, and Bitcoin SV was born.
Bitcoin SV (SV stands for Satoshi Vision) bills itself as the original Bitcoin — a cryptocurrency that stays true to the goals of pseudonymous founder Satoshi Nakamoto.
BSV’s main aims include delivering stability and achieving scalability, something that the original BTC blockchain has struggled to achieve.
The project’s website says: “Bitcoin SV is intended to provide a clear choice for miners and allow businesses to build applications and websites on it reliably.”
