What is Bitcoin SV (BSV)?

Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision (BSV) was created from a hardfork of the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) blockchain on November 15, 2018. The split was led by nChain’s Chief Scientist, Craig Wright, with the objective to restore Bitcoin SV to the original vision set out by Satoshi Nakamoto in the 2008 Bitcoin Whitepaper. It emphasises scaling onchain transactions, an increased blocksize and the reactivation of smart contract capabilities. Many developers, miners & businesses migrated from BCH to the BSV ecosystem. There are four fundamental pillars that make up Bitcoin SV’s vision for one global blockchain; Stability, Scalability, Security and Instant Transactions. Since forking, BSV has consistently remained as one of the top Cryptocurrencies.


Bitcoin SV (BSV) was designed by the nChain company led by founder, Craig Wright, and its development team. BSV lead developer Daniel Connolly has held senior positions with various United Nations agencies and has 20 years’ experience in enterprise systems. Steve Shadders is the Technical Director overseeing the project, working to enhance the ecosystem through partnerships liaising with sponsors and industry participants. Both individuals have extensive experience and contributed to the development of Bitcoin (BTC) and other open-source cryptocurrency projects.

Bitcoin SV (BSV) also has five full time C++ developers with almost 100 years combined development experience. Through partnerships, BSV has two additional senior developers working on the project in addition to hundreds of supporters working to enhance all areas.

The Bitcoin Association, a leading global organisation for Bitcoin business is also a major supporter of Bitcoin SV (BSV). President Jimmy Nguyen is one of the world’s leading Bitcoin advocates and a renowned public speaker and media commentator promoting BSV.

Calvin Ayer founder of CoinGeek and Ayre Group is another well-known supporter of Bitcoin SV. At the time of the hardfork, CoinGeek redirected its hash power away from Bitcoin (BTC) & Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to the new Bitcoin SV (BSV) blockchain securing the network and mining the first blocks. Ayer believes Bitcoin SV will absorb all other cryptocurrencies if it can deliver its roadmap and become the dominant blockchain.


Bitcoin SV (BSV) has a detailed roadmap of all completed, underway and planned technical improvements to the network. This roadmap is intended to provide high-level direction to allow the different technical teams to work together for the advancement of the Bitcoin SV network. The technical improvements are broken down into four main categories:

  1. Stability - Enabling businesses to plan years in advance and commit significant resources to build on a stable protocol.
  2. Scaling - Focus on developing onchain scalability for Bitcoin SV.
  3. Security - Ensuring they have enterprise level security and testing frameworks, incorporating the industries best practices.
  4. Safe Instant Transactions (SIT) - Focussing on bringing secure and fast transactions to the network enabling business models with micropayments and nanoservices.


The mining functionality in Bitcoin SV is very similar to the Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash networks. Miners use computing power to solve complex mathematical equations, mark transactions as genuine and are responsible for minting new coins into circulation. BSV miners earn the same rewards as those operating on the Bitcoin network, which is currently 6.25 BSV plus mining fees generated from transactions. This reward is due to half every 4 years, the same as Bitcoin.
