Bitcoin SV (BSV) is on a bullish run, extending its gains by over 27% this week. This cryptocurrency, a 2018 fork of the original Bitcoin blockchain, operates under the name Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (Bitcoin SV) to align with Satoshi Nakamoto's original vision for Bitcoin. At its most recent trading, BSV was hovering just above $43 per token, marking its highest levels since early July.
It's worth noting that BSV's remarkable rally doesn't seem to be sparked by any specific news or developments unique to Bitcoin SV. Instead, it's riding the wave of Bitcoin's (BTC) positive market performance this week. Speculation has been mounting that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) might soon approve a spot Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund (ETF), potentially opening the floodgates for institutional investments in the United States.
While a recent rumor falsely claimed that the SEC had approved Wall Street titan BlackRock's spot Bitcoin ETF application, it sent Bitcoin's price briefly soaring to $30,000. This incident acted as a warning for Bitcoin skeptics, emphasizing the potential for swift ETF-related price spikes and causing them to stay cautious.
The reality is that spot ETF approvals in the U.S. remain a wildcard, and some believe that the market hasn't fully priced them in. Analysts are increasingly optimistic about the SEC's disposition, especially since the agency chose not to appeal a recent legal defeat against Grayscale regarding the rejection of their spot Bitcoin ETF application. As 2024 approaches, there's growing hope for multiple spot Bitcoin ETF approvals, a factor likely to keep Bitcoin's price stable.
This optimism also has a spillover effect on Bitcoin SV. While it doesn't mirror Bitcoin's performance exactly, this favorable environment is keeping Bitcoin SV bulls in control.
Bitcoin SV's latest price surge has opened the door to revisiting yearly highs around $57. This surge took BSV considerably above its major moving averages in the $33-35 range, maintaining an upward trend since the lows in August at $26.
Bitcoin SV's 200-day moving average (DMA) had previously acted as robust resistance, a trend dating back to early 2021. While BSV managed to break substantially above the 200DMA in June/early July, that breakthrough was short-lived. The hope is that the current rally above the 200DMA will be more sustained and possibly mark the end of the prolonged bear market.
However, it's important to remember that Bitcoin SV has a history of struggling to sustain consistent price performance, making it a high-risk cryptocurrency.
For investors seeking potentially higher near-term gains with elevated risks, exploring cryptocurrency presales is an alternative strategy. In presales, investors buy tokens from emerging crypto projects, helping fund their development. These tokens are often offered at low prices, and presales have a track record of delivering substantial gains to early investors. Many of these projects boast strong teams and innovative visions for groundbreaking crypto applications and platforms.
