- Bitcoin SV grows over 18% in a day as Craig Wright releases third “Tulip Trust.
- The cryptocurrency community remained silent in light of BSV’s soar as a reversal impends.
Bitcoin SV (BSV), a Bitcoin spinoff, suddenly soared over 18% in the past 24 hours as Craig Wright, self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, released the third Bitcoin “Tulip Trust” in his case against David Kleiman. While the price appreciation is something of an anomaly in the field, given the rather mild price appreciation of top coins –Bitcoin rose 4% – the community has remained silent with top influencers mum on the absurd appreciation.
Bitcoin spikes 18% in light of release of Tulip Trust III
The surge in BSV from intraday trading lows of $115 on January 10 to highs of $177.39 USD in the early Asian trading hours on Saturday represents the largest move by a top cryptocurrency in 2020. The Bitcoin Cash hard fork is said to have pumped on the news of a new Tulip Trust document released by Craig Wright defending his claim as the real “Satoshi Nakamoto”
Craig Wright, a known Bitcoin SV supporter, has faced a long court battle with Dave Kleinman’s estate on sharing the 1.1 million BTC stash that are owned by “Satoshi Nakamoto”.
A silent treatment
The soar in BSV’s price has been something of a quiet rise despite the unnatural nature of the spike. It can all be attributed to the continued wrangles between the Bitcoin SV and Bitcoin communities.
It is a well-known fact that the Bitcoin maximalists are heavily against forks of the coin and generally the rest of the altcoins and the latest run on BSV will not sit well with this section of the crypto community. Well, in the past 24 hours the soar in both Bitcoin spinoffs, BSV and BCH, has received almost no attention from the community despite the spike.
