3 Best Bitcoin Trading Strategies- How to Trade Bitcoin Profitable

Hello, dear readers and subscribers. This is Andrew Strogoff again and I’m going to describe some interesting Bitcoin trading strategies in this article. The number of Bitcoin traders and investors has increased significantly in the past couple of years. They are trying to get profits in this volatile market. Traders and investors use different types of strategies in order to succeed.

Before I start describing the three of the best methods of trading Bitcoin, I would like to enlist them. Here they are:

  1. Fundamental Hodl strategy.

  2. Technical analysis different timeframes strategy.

  3. Scalping.

Fundamental Hodl strategy

This is one of the easiest ways of trading Bitcoin. This Hodl strategy requires nor skills neither experience in trading. The only thing you need is money and patience. Long term Hodl strategy was a reliable one in the past and many investors think that this one will give good results in the future.

Why Hodl? This is a misspelling of the word Hold. The word appeared in 2013 when Bitcoin was falling and a drunk trader has posted his comment on Bitcointalk. Later, Hodl became popular and is used widely by many traders.

What is the main idea of this strategy and why do I like it more than the others? You need no technical analysis knowledge at all. The only thing that is important is to monitor the price of the digital asset (Bitcoin in this case).

To make it more fruitful, I use fundamental analysis as well, meaning I follow all the important news and make my own analysis thinking of how they can influence the crypto market. What are that events and why do they influence Bitcoin price?

Bitcoin trading strategy, news and events

Well, every Bitcoin trading strategy is based on supply and demand principles meaning the price of the cryptocurrency relies on those two basic parameters. When the demand is higher than the supply, Bitcoin grows. Otherwise, the main cryptocurrency goes downwards. When the supply and demand are equal, the price stands at a place without significant changes.

The news is one of the main price drivers! They may be either positive or negative. Depending on their nature, Bitcoin price may grow or decline. One of the most influential events was a fork. When it happened, the coin’s price decline and there is nothing strange here as the adepts and holders are also divided by the fork.

There are some other important events that I will describe here. Some data may be expected or unexpected. Being a professional FX trader, I know and understand that expected news in cryptocurrency community is something very rare. There are no special events calendar that you may open on Monday, for example, and see that there is some important data on Thursday, e.g.

When I trade FX currency pairs, I use such calendars frequently as I want to know what events are likely to influence the market during the week. However, as for Bitcoin, there is no such a calendar at all meaning there are almost no events that may be expected or predicted in advance except those that are widely discussed by the community.

Another important group of events is related to policies towards cryptocurrencies and the whole Blockchain technology. To tell the truth, Blockchain adoption is far from being fast. However, I can see that we have a huge progress in this field as compared to previous years. The situation with cryptocurrencies is much more difficult as they are forbidden in many countries where blockchain technologies are already adopted.

Let’s take China for example. Blockchain is considered to be a very promising technology by the local government, but they are fighting against ICOs, TGEs, and cryptos in general.

How to make profit trading news? This Bitcoin trading strategy is actual when important events take place. All you need is some experience and patience. This strategy is not a hodl one, but is close to it as you may buy Bitcoin, for example, and hold it for a long time period.

Technical analysis Bitcoin trading strategies

Bitcoin trading is very popular nowadays and many investors try their best in an attempt to earn money. Bitcoin is very volatile and allows gaining significant profits for everyone. However, before you start trading this cryptocurrency, you need to calculate your risks as well.

I, personally, prefer technical analysis trading as hodling is a very long-term strategy, which freezes money with undefined results. I am going to show you some interesting solutions that may help you earn money when trading Bitcoin.

a clear downtrend and a simple descending trend line

Let’s take a look at the first screenshot. Here you can see a clear downtrend and a simple descending trend line. The price reaches it at one point and here we have a clear signal to sell Bitcoin. This situation is good for those traders who prefer margin trading as they may sell the currency pair BTC/USD and get profit from such activities.

This is one of the easiest Bitcoin trading strategies, but you need to learn about trend lines and how to use them. They look pretty easy on my screenshot but I have great experience in using them. You need first to learn how to put them on charts and how to deal with them as well.

strong resistance area

Let me give you another example. On the second screenshot, you can see no trend at all, but we have a strong resistance area here. The currency pair tries to breach it several times without any chance to succeed.

This tells us that bulls re-unable to reverse the trend. This is the first signal that shows us that we will have some further downtrend in the nearest future. However, here we have some clear signal that predicts further price fluctuations.

BTC/USD forms a shooting star pattern which is a very strong candlestick model. BTC price goes downwards first but then retests the resistance area again. As you may see, bulls fail again and the price declines towards the red flag.

This strategy includes no indicators or other tools except resistance area and candlestick patterns. It seems very easy, but you need to have experience in graphic analysis before using it.

Bollinger Bands indicator in order

Another example of Bitcoin trading strategy is here. Take a look at the next screenshot. Here I have put Bollinger Bands indicator in order to show how it works. As you may see, I have highlighted some interesting points on the chart. Here there are signals that will help you to take profits.

Bollinger Bands indicator is a rather simple one. There are plenty of Bitcoin trading strategies that you may use when applying this algorithm. However, I would like to show you the easiest one. Here you can buy when the price is touching (or is close to) to the lowest border of the indicator and sell when Bitcoin reaches the upper one.

Pros and cons of technical analysis Bitcoin trading strategies

I prefer those strategies for the following reasons:

  1. They are illustrative. Every time you look at the chart you can see something that may give you an idea of what is happening with the price. No matter what kind of tools do you use, you always have something to look at.

  2. Wide range of tools. Bitcoin trading strategies of this type use different tools including technical indicators, graphics tools etc. You don’t need to know all of them. You can just choose one or two in order to succeed.

  3. All data is available. Those who choose technical analysis, are able to use all data that is available for them meaning they have the current price and history of quotes that help to forecast future fluctuations.

  4. The price includes everything. This is one of my favorite advantages. No matter what type of asset do you trade all the news and events are already included in the price. The only thing you need is to understand the future direction of fluctuations.

As for the disadvantages, they are the following:

  1. Technical analysis is sometimes subjective. All the results that you have when analyzing the price using technical means may be subjective as they are coming from your head. All professional traders try to be objective, but sometimes it doesn’t work at all.

  2. Your forecasts may fail no matter what you do. Yes, it happens and I would say that such situations are frequent. You do your analysis, find signals but the price goes the opposite directions. As for me, I establish some limits for my personal trades meaning I know when to exit my positions if the forecast is wrong.

Scalping Bitcoin trading strategies

Those ones are part of technical analysis trading strategies. Scalping is also known as pips trading. The main idea of this method is that you open a huge number of positions within one single trading day. Scalping is not a new method as it was used already in Forex and stock trading for a long period of time. Those scalping traders sometimes are able to make significant gains due to the big number of positions they open.

When trading with this method, you use the very same analysis tools that you apply in technical analysis. Those are the indicators, the candlesticks and the others. This method is supposed to be the best for all traders, but I would like you to pay attention to its advantages and disadvantages before opening real trading positions using it.

The main advantages are:

  1. This method offers great opportunities for the traders. You can open 10+ positions during one single trading day meaning you can win a huge amount in the end.

  2. Fast enter and fast exit. You don’t need to wait much until the price “matures.” Once you have some 10+ pips profit, you can exit your position and look for another one.

  3. You don’t need to hold your positions for long so you don’t “freeze your money.”

  4. Bitcoin price volatility is huge, offering you many opportunities during the day.

Those are the pros of this method that are not numerous naturally. As for the disadvantages, they are the following:

  1. The main disadvantage of this method is that this one requires full-time presence in front of the chart. This means that you are to monitor the price for several hours opening and exiting your trades. Otherwise, it makes no sense to use this strategy.

  2. You need to focus on the price. This is another great disadvantage of this method. You need to be focused on charts. Scalper traders are under significant pressure and they get tired 100-time faster than the others. They have to constantly follow the price as one mistake may lead to significant losses. Remember that in scalping high volumes of your capital are involved.

  3. The next disadvantage is exchange fees. The more positions you open, the more you have to pay. However, there is one great exception. The more volumes you do within one exchange, the more money you save as most trading platforms give discounts for high trading volumes.

Those disadvantages of scalping show that this method is not suitable for all traders’ categories. Those who use scalping are always very skilled and they know what to do in every situation.

Those are the three main trading strategies for Bitcoin. You can use them separately or even combine as I do sometimes. I prefer to follow the news and events first, but to take the decision, I always get down to charts and look through them trying to find the best trading opportunities.

Bitcoin Obituaries Keep Rising But Why Is Bitcoin Still Not Dead?

⭐ Features
Bitcoin has been pronounced dead multiple times in its 10-year life; its recent fall brought about another obituary, but why is it that Bitcoin is NOT dead?
Bitcoin Obituaries Keep Rising But Why Is Bitcoin Still Not Dead?

A popular site called 99Bitcoins keeps a close eye on the number of times that Bitcoin has been declared dead in the mainstream media. Currently, it has accrued 336 obituaries for the digital currency.

The latest drop in the price of Bitcoin, which took it from the mid-$6,000 mark down to near on $3,000, sparked fresh panic and capitulation as many believed that the cryptocurrency had had its last days.

There were concerns over its utility and usefulness, as well as the potential for a so-called death spiral in the mining of Bitcoin as many miners shut up shop. Yet, Bitcoin continues to exist, and at time of writing, has bounced back to over $4,000.

So what is it that is keeping Bitcoin alive? It has no CEO, no company headquarters, and because of its decentralised nature, has no one to drive it to keep it alive; it relies solely on those who are interested in it.

The underlying blockchain

Bitcoin, or cryptocurrencies in general, have a very special relationship to their underlying technology, blockchain. They are of course dependent on each other to operate, but they also move independently of each other in many respects.

Blockchain is advancing in a very different path to that of Bitcoin, but it was Bitcoin’s initial explosion in the mainstream financial space that made people take blockchain seriously.

Now that the cryptocurrency bubble has essentially burst, there is a lot less hype and interest in it. However, blockchain, the technology behind it all, is getting a chance to come out and shine for its technological reasons alone.

For this reason, Bitcoin is still very much relevant. Blockchain progression is building steadily, and solidly, and because of its adoption across all centres, people still appreciate the usefulness of a digital token.

Bitcoin, as the major digital token that encapsulates all the main points of cryptocurrency and blockchain — such as decentralisation and transparency, and of course distribution — is the epitome of a functioning token economy.

Manageable mining

Another reason why Bitcoin hasn’t totally capitulated is because of its built in mining difficulty adjustment. Many people feared that Bitcoin could go under if the miners, an important part of any proof-of-work cryptocurrency, decided to abandon Bitcoin because of the increased difficulty and the loss of profitability.

Indeed, when the price dropped significantly in November, many miners did shut down and the hash rate also fell. But, because Bitcoin has a built in adjustment, the lower hash rate caused the mining difficulty to increase, and thus caused profitability to increase again, enticing miners back.

With more miners mining, there was increased health and activity on the blockchain, which leads to better interest and investment in the markets. This, in turn and in a compound way, then helps boost the price and drive more miners back in, again increasing profit and price.

Shedding the speculators

There is also a big difference between a burst speculative bubble and the death of a market. Some markets can be destroyed by the bubble pop, but in the case of Bitcoin, it is mirroring the dot com bubble because it has a similar nature.

With its underlying blockchain equitable to the internet, and the ICO hype and other factors equitable to Dot Com companies, one can see that this type of burst bubble is a chance for Bitcoin to shed its foolish speculative investors, and allow for those who are serious and successful to rebuild the market based on the important technology underneath.

Bitcoin will continue to be called dead, and erroneously so because it has only hit the mainstream in the last 18 months or so.

However, if one is to zoom out a bit, one would see that an investor who bought Bitcoin two years ago rather than, say, one year ago, would still be over 300 percent up on their investment.

GameCredits Bittrex Review: The Detailed Guide for Beginners

⭐ Features
GameCredits (GAME) is an in-game payment platform that is poised to become a major disruptor in the multibillion-dollar gaming industry
GameCredits Bittrex Review: The Detailed Guide for Beginners

GAME (a.k.a. GameCredits) is an innovative cryptocurrency that has been very popular within the international gaming community. Thanks to the recent strategic partnerships with Microsoft and Xsolla, the team behind GAME crypto managed to achieve the incredible leap in promotion of this cryptocurrency.

Why should you exchange GameCredits on Bittrex?

There are so many exchange services out there. Why should you use the services of Bittrex in order to exchange or trade your GAME coins? The main advantage for beginners — Bittrex has never been hacked unlike other large platforms. Since 2017 all user accounts of this U.S. exchange service are solidly protected.

Also, this project implements the multi-level wallets strategy. About 90% of customer funds are stored offline. 2-factor authorization is offered for users (in particular, for withdrawal of their funds from wallets). If it is not activated, the exchange sets certain limits on withdrawals.

Features of Bittrex for GAME users

Bittrex offers a modern trading platform that is always accessible offline. If you type GAME in the search field on the main page, you will instantly see the chart with prices changing in real time. For example, currently (5th December 2018) you may see that the price of 1 GAME in the pair USD/GAME on Bittrex is $0.07.

Below the chart is a window with platform’s apps. The platform is designed for both beginners and experienced traders. You may check the possibility of a thorough technical analysis of any assets using technical indicators is implemented.

By default, an algorithm for calculating volumes is set straight on the chart of GAME/USD and GAME/BTC. The site features 450 currency pairs traded with Bitcoin. There are quite good trading opportunities with both BTC and ETH for GAME owners.

However, Bittrex does not have currency pairs with fiat money. Buying Bitcoin, Ethereum or Tether is possible by bank transfer. In order to use this service, you must pass the account verification. Traders have the opportunity to open different types of orders.

For example, they can buy GAME and other available assets at the market price or choose pending orders for the purchase of a particular cryptocurrency at the desired value. The only drawback - Bittrex does not offer any margin trading.

Deposit and withdrawal of GAME funds of the Bittrex exchange provides wide opportunities for those who want to replenish their account and withdraw money from it with GAME cryptocurrency. Two stages of verification actually mean that the base level is the inclusion of 2FA and filling in the "About me" fields. To withdraw more money (more than 4 BTC), full verification is required.

Currently, there are two types of accounts on Bittrex:

  • Basic. Users provide name, address of residence, indicate the date of birth. This data is verified through open sources (social networks, for example). However, if security officers of the company fail to verify the information, more detailed verification will already be required with the participation of the user;

  • Advanced. To open such accounts, the user must provide scanned copies of identification documents along with a selfie attached;

How to buy and sell GAME on Bittrex?

According to almost any user’s review of GameCredits on Bittrex, the website offers the opportunity to trade market and limit orders. The first allows you to buy a cryptocurrency at the current price at which it is offered on the market.

Let’s suppose, GAME coin is worth $1. A user wants to buy it and is ready to pay that price. In this case, he chooses a market order, enters the volume of the transaction and presses the “Buy” button. If the user already has bitcoins and he wants to sell them, at the same time, the current price on the market fully suits him, this can also be done by placing a market order, only for sale.

Fees for services here are considered average for the global market. Bittrex charges 0.25% commission for all transactions. At the same time, payments from traders can be reduced depending on the time of the user’s trading status.

Gov’t of India Reportedly Plans to Regulate Crypto, What’s the Motive?

⭐ Features
The government of India is exploring the possibility of legalizing crypto and regulating exchanges
Gov’t of India Reportedly Plans to Regulate Crypto, What’s the Motive?

Several local publications have reported that the government of India is exploring the possibility of regulating crypto.

At an official government meeting hosted by the interdisciplinary committee, a task force led by members of the Ministry of Economics and information Technology and the Ministry of Home Affairs, the committee ruled in favor of regulating cryptocurrencies with strict policies.

Sudden Change in Stance Toward Crypto

In April, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) imposed a blanket ban on cryptocurrency trading, prohibiting the country’s financial institutions from dealing with cryptocurrency-related businesses.

The unexpected ban on cryptocurrency exchanges implemented by the country’s central bank effectively disallowed trading platforms from obtaining banking services from local financial institutions.

Several exchanges tried to pivot to cryptocurrency-to-cryptocurrency trading but with the dominance of Binance, OKEx, Huobi, and other crypto-only exchanges, local digital asset trading platforms failed to compete and shut down their businesses.

At the time, the RBI threatened to end its relationship with any local bank that deals with digital asset exchanges. A circular released by the central bank read:

“In view of the associated risks, it has been decided that, with immediate effect, entities regulated by RBI shall not deal with or provide services to any individual or business entities dealing with or settling VCs (virtual currencies). Regulated entities which already provide such services shall exit the relationship within a specified time.”

In July, industry leaders, associations, and companies challenged the controversial decision of the RBI by filing a complaint with the Supreme Court of India. Within several months after the filing, the court ruled in favor of the RBI, allowing the central bank to impose a ban on cryptocurrency trading.

Merry Christmas from Ripple and Binance: XRP as Quote Currency

However, on December 26, a senior government official told The New Indian Express in an interview that the government believes cryptocurrencies cannot be dismissed as illegal currencies and the asset class has to be regulated with strict policies.

“We have already had two meetings. There is a general consensus that cryptocurrency cannot be dismissed as completely illegal. It needs to be legalised with strong riders. Deliberations are on. We will have more clarity soon,” the official said.

The change in the stance toward cryptocurrencies from the government of India likely comes from its acknowledgement of the risk in unregulated cryptocurrency trading. By placing a ban on digital asset exchanges, it forced investors out of a self-regulated market to unregulated peer-to-peer and over-the-counter markets that are difficult to regulate and monitor.

If the intent of the government is to prevent money laundering through the usage of cryptocurrencies, a more effective way of doing so is to allow cryptocurrency trading on exchanges with strict Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) systems in place.

When Could It Take Place?

Many reports were released in the past anticipating the legalization of cryptocurrencies by the government of India. Yet, the government showed no signs of regulating the asset class in the past 12 months.

With the G20 agreeing to regulate cryptocurrencies to crack down on money laundering, India, which is a part of the G20, could follow the global trend of regulating the asset class.

Given the history of India in the cryptocurrency sector, it may take several months to potentially years before cryptocurrency trading is revitalized and completely legalized with stable banking services provided by local financial institutions.

Aeron’s ARN token is now available in EOS ecosystem

⭐ Features
Good news for EOS traders: Aeron’s ARN token is introduced in EOS ecosystem for instant bi-directional ARN ERC-20 ⇄ EOS swap
Aeron’s ARN token is now available in EOS ecosystem

Aeron, the innovative blockchain-based aviation safety project, extends its reach to EOS ecosystem and allows for Ethereum ERC20 and EOS token swap in both directions. That will boost liquidity of the token and help Aeron strengthen its position on the market. Let’s find out how it works, and define the advantages that platform users will reap.

A few words about Aeron

Aeron project was created by experienced pilots and aviation experts to improve the aviation safety and provide comprehensive tools for flight schools and private aircraft owners and operators. Aeron features ARN ERC20-compliant token that can be simply integrated into users’ wallets and traded via exchanges and direct transfers. The fixed token supply is 20,000,000 ARN.

Aeron can be used by both aviation companies and their clients

At the moment, ARN ERC20 token is present on the major cryptocurrency exchanges: Binance, KuCoin, HitBTC and many others. Introduction of ARN into EOS ecosystem offers even more liquidity to the holders with access to the new EOS decentralized exchanges, which feature instant execution and even more convenience for users to manage their assets.

Possibilities and perspectives

With ARN token launch on the EOS blockchain, free cross-blockchain token swap is available for all Aeron token holders. From the first day, ARN EOS token is listed in all significant EOS decentralized exchanges, and MEET.ONE, the most popular EOS wallet, supports this token natively as well.

Cross-blockchain token swap is performed at 1:1 ratio: once an ERC20 token is locked, the EOS equivalent is released, and vice versa. Therefore the new ARN EOS token value is totally backed by the legacy ARN ERC20 tokens on Ethereum blockchain.

Can users keep both types of tokens? Yes, ARN EOS and ARN ERC20 tokens may be kept on different wallets and exchanged at any time. Some wallets support EOS and ERC20 tokens simultaneously. The swap isn’t obligatory, so token holders are free to use this option depending on their needs. According to Aeron, the exchange option will be available 24/7 and permanently – no time limits apply.

There are two key advantages:

  • Swap is totally free, no matter in which direction it’s made.

  • No token burning is involved, and tokens can be swapped back freely.

Instant ARN ERC20/EOS swap opens new possibilities for ARN token holders making the asset more liquid and convenient in handling, opening up EOS ecosystem famous for its instant transactions and low fees. There’s no need to surf the net in search of suitable swap options: secure token swap is performed on the Aeron website.  ARN EOS token can be further traded on Newdex, Chaince, WhaleEx, Findex, BTEX and other new EOS exchanges.

With the introduction of new EOS stable coins (EETH, EBTC, EUSD), additional ARN trading pairs will become available to facilitate value exchange and storage in EOS ecosystem.

How to perform a token swap?

In order to swap ARN ERC20 for EOS and vice versa, a user should have an EOS account. It can be registered in MEET.ONE, Paytomat Wallet or other EOS wallets (please, note that it’s a paid option that costs about $2, but sometimes sponsored by the wallet developer).

The ARN token swap is instant and the rate is fixed at 1:1, so ARN token holders won’t have to waste time placing sell/buy orders. They will enjoy a fast swap without fees.

Once EOS account is created, and tokens are swapped, a user can proceed to EOS decentralized exchanges. To register on EOS exchanges, a user will need Scatter software for the authentication process. Installation of Scatter won’t take much time, and it is compatible with all platforms. Alternatively, a QR code can be scanned to authenticate with an exchange directly from the compatible EOS wallet.

Step-by-step guide to ARN token swap

Bottom Line

At the moment, Aeron platform and the pilot shop powered by Aeron support legacy ARN ERC20 token, and EOS token integration will be done gradually through 2019. EOS salient features, such as low latency, free transactions, and scalability, can serve to improve Aeron token adoption and strengthen the business model. Meanwhile, ARN EOS token can be used by Aeron supporters to get familiar with EOS environment and its peculiarities. As example, EOS blockchain can process up to 4,000 transactions every second, making EOS exchanges the fastest decentralized exchanges in the world.

With the first ever bi-directional ERC20/EOS token swap enabled by Aeron, it may be expected that other blockchain projects will follow this method to expand their community and let the supporters enter the vibrant EOS ecosystem with their favourite tokens.

Cryptocurrency Markets Turn Green While Bitcoin SV Lags Behind

⭐ Features
A small window of positivity has settled across the cryptocurrency market with most coins seeing double-figure gains
Cryptocurrency Markets Turn Green While Bitcoin SV Lags Behind

The past few days, since about Saturday last week, the cryptocurrency markets have shown some fight back with there being steady gains in the last two days in particular. Bitcoin has topped near-on $3,800 as the rest of the market basks in its glow.

There are gains for all of the top 20 coins, ranging from six to a staggering 29 percent over the last 24 hours alone. The market going green, after a month-long fall starting on the Bitcoin Cash hard fork, is only just starting to bud, and it remains to be seen if it will last, or be a reversal in fortunes.

Speaking of Bitcoin Cash, its battle continues with the name Bitcoin Cash going to the ABC pool, and that coin being the biggest gainer at 29 percent in the top 20. This has forced the forked coin to sixth on the market cap, and stretched out its lead over rival Bitcoin SV.

SV is now in ninth, and in danger of falling out of the top 10 with the likes of IOTA, Monero and Tron all surging up in value.

Good day for green

As reported yesterday, the difficulty adjustment for Bitcoin mining lowered by about 10 percent recently, and this drop in difficulty is intended to make it more profitable by making it easier to mine Bitcoin.

Therefore, the hash rate of Bitcoin has been rising again as miners are once again just on the right side of being profitable. This ties in with the price and can compound the gains as the more interest and health from miners for the Bitcoin blockchain, the more interest from the market.

If this is indeed the case for Bitcoin’s price rising again, there is every chance that there could be a longish rally, however, a good solid rally has not been seen since more than a year ago when Bitcoin was heading to its All Time High.

Following on

As is often the case, the rest of the altcoins have also profited from Bitcoin and its own gains as most coins are seeing gains in the double figures. Ripple sits in second ahead of Ethereum, but they are both growing well, as are Tron and Stellar.

Bitcoin Cash has grown by nearly 30 percent over the last 24 hours, and just outside the top 10 IOTA, Monero, Binance Coin and Dash are all up over 10 percent. Bitcoin SV is up by nine percent, but in comparison to the chasing pack, it should be concerned about being usurped from the top 10.

Battle-worn Bitcoin Cash

Although both the Bitcoin Cash forks remain in the top 10 of the market cap standing, they have both lost huge value since their split in November. Bitcoin Cash has lost a whopping 45 percent of its value since late November, while Bitcoin SV has dropped 35 percent. This is compared to Bitcoin's 15 percent fall over the same period.

Bitcoin SV has other problems than its market cap standing to worry about, though as there are allegations of users being able to spend the same coins twice in what's known as a "0-conf transaction" double spend. Additionally, there are concerns about its centralisation with four Bitcoin SV network nodes controlling 75% of its hash rate, leaving it vulnerable to attacks and weaker than most decentralized crypto networks.
