Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is a cryptocurrency created in late 2018 by way of forking from Bitcoin Cash (BCH). A fork is a split in the blockchain network.

Frequently asked questions
What is Bitcoin SV (BSV) and how does it work?
Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is a full-node implementation and a fork of Bitcoin Cash (BCH). BSV emerged as a result of a hard fork from Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in 2018. It attempts to restore the original Bitcoin protocol as set out by its namesake Satoshi Nakamoto in version 0.1 of Bitcoin.
Satoshi Nakamoto is a pseudonym used by the presumed person or persons who developed Bitcoin, the Bitcoin white paper, and created Bitcoin’s original reference implementation, in addition to the first blockchain database.
BSV works similarly to Bitcoin, using a Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus mechanism. BSV distinguishes itself by supporting larger block sizes compared to Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, which allows for greater scalability and enables more transactions to be processed per block.
How is the Bitcoin SV (BSV) price determined?
The global cryptocurrency exchanges where BSV is traded play a pivotal role in establishing its market price through buying and selling by traders and investors. As more people buy BSV, its price rises, while a decrease in demand can lead to its price decline.
How do network consensus and validation work on Bitcoin SV (BSV)?
Network consensus and validation on Bitcoin SV rely on the Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus protocol to process transactions. Transactions are broadcast across the network and grouped into blocks.
When a user initiates a transaction, the network creates a complex mathematical problem. Miners, who are participants in the network, compete to solve a cryptographic puzzle using computational power. The first miner to solve the puzzle adds a new block of validated transactions to the blockchain.
