Bitcoin SV (BSV) Notches 8% In The Last Day as Top Coins Bleed

BSV has bucked a bearish trend amid the general crypto market downturn, posting notable gains over the past 24 hours. Bitcoin SV (BSV) recorded an 8% 24-hour price increase, while Bitcoin succumbed to bearish pressure, dipping nearly 3% today, October 3.

As a result of today’s uptick, BSV now trades at $40.4, representing an 8% increase in the last 24 hours. Also, the token has recorded over 31% seven-day increase, regaining over 34% of its past month’s gains. 

These prominent strides confirm buyers’ dominance in the BSV market today. However, given the bearish state of the general crypto market, how long can BSV sustain this rally? What factors triggered this dramatic surge? Let’s find out.

Bitcoin SV Price Surges Amidst Controversy Surrounding CEO’s Resignation

BSV price gains correlate with the sudden resignation of nChain’s CEO, Christen Ager-Hanssen, on September 29. nChain is a firm that offers blockchain-based services related to the BSV chain. Its former CEO, Ager-Hanssen, immediately announced his departure from the group on September 29

Ager-Hassen mentioned reporting several issues to the nChain board, which included a conspiracy to defraud shareholders. He also stated that a significant shareholder orchestrated the conspiracy. 

Further, he claimed to discover evidence that BSV creator Dr. Craig Wright manipulated documents to deceive the court that he was Satoshi. 

However, Bitcoin SV’s supporter Calvin Ayre reviewed Anger-Hanssen’s departure. According to Ayre, Anger-Hanssen has never run a successful company and lies to steal assets

Notably, Bitcoin SV sparked to life after nChain released a statement that Stefan Matthews would take over as acting CEO.

Recent Tweet By Supposed Bitcoin Founder Boosts Investor Sentiment On BSV

Another event that occurred around BSV was an October 2, 2023, tweet from an account claiming to be Bitcoin’s founder, Satoshi Nakamoto. Interestingly, the last tweet from this account was on October 31, 2018. 

According to a recent tweet, Nakamoto stated that Bitcoin is a predicated machine. He revealed his desire to explore other aspects of the project not contained in the whitepaper. 

The tweet attracted positive reactions, with one user stating that the first post since 2018 has to mean something. Since Bitcoin BSV supposedly aligns with the original Bitcoin vision, it benefited from this sentiment. The reactions likely increased investor confidence, leading to massive token demand and today’s 8% uptick. 

Although the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto and his involvement in this saga remains a mystery, these controversies positively affected BSV’s price.

What Next For BSV?

BSV has flipped the $32.6 resistance into support to form a large green candle on October 2. It faces the next resistance at the $40.4 price level. A break above this level will likely send BSV up to $42. 

Since the Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator is in the overbought zone at 81.9, it confirms the strong buying pressure pushing BSV up. Nevertheless, traders should expect a slight retracement in the coming days once the buyers begin to make a profit.
