It has been two months since the Bitcoin Cash hardfork which resulted in Bitcoin SV breaking off from the fourth-most prominent cryptocurrency. Since its introductions, Bitcoin SV has been in decline, mirroring the rest of the market bearing the repercussions of the November hardfork.

Buoyed by the collective market increase, Bitcoin SV is trading in green, which looks to be short-lived given the market movement. Bit-Z holds the maximum trading volume of Bitcoin SV amounting to $9.69 million or 12.5 percent in the BCHSV/BTC trading pair. The world’s largest crypto exchange Binance comes in second with a 12.09 percent or $9.37 million trading volume of Bitcoin SV in the BCHSV/USDT pair.


Bitcoin SV began the month in a relatively stable motion which halted on January 10, prior to the price decline. This decline began a series of price fluctuations. The coin experienced two downtrends respectively, the first of which began on January 10, and extended from $89.74 to $85.13, followed by a decline from $86.05 to $78.71. Between the two, an uptrend which extended from $75.68 to $85.66 was also experienced.

The Fisher Transform indicator shows that the 2100 UTC on 14 January, the bearish line overtook the bullish line as the trend began to turn.


Despite its infancy in the market, Bitcoin SV has managed to reach the top-5 and even overtake Bitcoin Cash at one point, but BSV is now pegged at the 10th spot on the coin ladder while the prices continue to remain volatile. Given its short life-span, the coin has seen a downtrend since its initiation extending from $219.33 to $83.16 with a mild uptrend beginning on 23 November extending from $43.29 to $68.63.
