Bitcoin SV [BSV] managed to hold onto its tenth spot on the global coin ladder, as the recent market meltdown cut over $8 billion from the market cap and caused a market reshuffle. Despite the bears taking over the overall market, BSV managed to hold on to its spot, unlike Bitcoin Cash [BCH], which slipped two places, delighting the BSV camp.

The price of Bitcoin SV has plummeted to under $64, just five days after the coin was trading well above $75. Bitcoin SV’s market capitalization was dented, with the same dropping to $1.09 billion, its lowest point since mid-December. At press time, Bitcoin SV has a market cap of $1.13 billion, showing a marginal rise.

In terms of exchange dominance, BitMart boasts the highest BSV trade volume of $21.4 million or 23.85 percent in the BSV/USDT trading pair. Following it are CHAOEX and IDCM in the trading pairs: BCHBSV/USDT and BCHSV/USDT, with trading volumes of 8.28 percent and 7.11 percent respectively.
