Bitcoin SV (BSV) Price Dips Following Coinbase Delisting

Bitcoin SV

Bitcoin SV (BSV),  a hardfork of the Bitcoin token, has drawn much attention in the last day after top American exchange Coinbase announced its termination of support for the asset. Following this news, BSV’s price has taken a hit, falling by over 5% in the last 24 hours.

Coinbase Ends Support For Bitcoin SV

Aside from Coinbase, other top exchanges that have delisted Bitcoin SV include Binance, Kraken, Bittrex, Robinhood, etc.

In 2022, Wright filed to obtain the Bitcoin copyright and block the operations of the Bitcoin network and Bitcoin Cash claiming a violation of intellectual property. However, the court rejected this petition in the face of surmountable evidence against the plaintiff.

Bitcoin SV Price Overview 

At the time of writing, BSV trades at $72.65 with a 5.61% price loss on the last day but a 0.10% gain on the weekly chart. Despite an impressive end to 2023 in which it gained by almost 110% in the last week of the year, the Bitcoin hardfork is now down by 15.20% in the last 30 days.
