Bitcoin SV is trading in pairs with BTC and USD on the platform. Additional trading pairs for Bitcoin SV and Bitcoin ABC is expected to be added in the nearby future. Many other exchanges already list both the Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV tokens on their platforms. Although the hard fork was originally intended to upgrade the network, Bitcoin SV split from the ABC.
Other Exchanges Listing Bitcoin SV
Following the successful fork and the subsequent split in the Bitcoin Cash Network, many exchanges list both the Bitcoin SV and the ABC. Recently Binance announced that all eligible users have now received both BCH ABC and BCH SV tokens. By the time of the listing bitcoin, ABC had already mined 34 blocks more than SV.
Both the Bitfinex and Poloniex exchanges have also said they have made the shift to the new cryptocurrencies.
“We’ve finished converting all BCH balances to BCHABC and BCHSV. The BCH market is now disabled. BCHABC/BTC, BCHSV/BTC, BCHABC/USDC, and BCHSV/USDC markets are open. Deposits and withdrawals of BCHABC and BCHSV are still paused, and will remain paused until the networks stabilize.”
