Bitcoin SV was created when Bitcoin Cash hard forked in November 2018. Hard forks can occur when the community behind a cryptocurrency disagrees on how to best improve the network. These disagreements sometimes cause the network to split from one cryptocurrency into two. Bitcoin SV, stands for “Satoshis Vision”, which is a reference to Bitcoin’s anonymous creator Satoshi Nakamoto. The Bitcoin SV team believes that that their roadmap is more in line with the original Bitcoin, as laid out in Nakamoto’s 2008 white paper.
