Warning: Scam site mimicking SVPool.com

We’re sending a warning to people in and out of the crypto industry. There is a website trying to cheat unsuspecting users looking to visit SVPool.com. 

The individual or group is utilizing a common tactic that’s a favourite of spammers and scammers across the internet, they’ve registered a common misspelling and created a duplicate site at SVPool.co. When visitors accidentally type SVPool.co rather than the full .com version of the site, they’re led to a virtually identical looking website encouraging people to sign-up to the fraudulent pool.

When clicking through the dupe site, many of the pages results in a 404 error, and in some cases, it takes you to their registrar’s error page. The site uses SVPool’s genuine social media handles to make things look as authentic as possible. 

We filled out the registration form to gain access to the client area, they are asking for BTC in exchange for SV hashing power, which we assume does not exist.

We’ve used the wallet explorer on Blockchair to determine that no transactions have gone to the listed wallet. We assume that people who are looking for SVPool.com are savvy enough to realize the .co scam.

SVPool proudly runs the Bitcoin SV full node implementation: BSV. If you believe in Bitcoin’s original vision, you believe in Bitcoin SV. Bitcoin SV is designed to restore the original Satoshi protocol, keep it stable, and enable it to massively scale. 

If you want to join the SVPool or you want to learn more about it, please direct your browser to SVPool.com, register an account and follow the easy instructions contained within.

Joe Chin on why miners should join SVPool: Like Bitcoin SV, we place miners first

Joe Chin on why miners should join SVPool: Like Bitcoin SV, we place miners first

CoinGeek Mining and Hardware CEO Joe Chin, in a recent presentation, enumerated the advantages of mining with SVPool as well as running Bitcoin SV.

Even with SVPool establishing itself among Bitcoin BCH miners soon after its launch last October, Joe Chin, CEO of CoinGeek Mining and Hardware, continues to think of how to draw miners in.

At the CoinGeek-sponsored Bitcoin Miners Choice Summit held at The Grand Harbour in Hong Kong last November 2, Chin discussed the advantages of mining with SVPool as well as running the Bitcoin SV. SVPool, a personal initiative of nChain Chief Scientist Dr. Craig Wright, is managed by CoinGeek Mining and proudly runs the Bitcoin SV full node implementation.

Chin told the audience, “Just because we launched [in October] doesn’t mean the work stops there. Almost on a weekly basis, every sprint, we’re adding new features. We’re also thinking of ways to incentivize miners who mine with us. We’re working on plans perhaps to give them access to the new miner hardware that we will release shortly.”

Chin also believes it’s important to remain receptive to miners’ needs regarding costs and payments. “[W]e also have feedback from miners, that many of them desire the steady income of PPS+ [pay per share plus], so we will be introducing that shortly. But I still believe that with zero fees, and if you have enough hash rate, you can actually do very well with the [current] PPLNS [pay per last N share]. And we’re also working on promotions and loyalty programs. So those will be announced in the very near future. So I encourage you guys to go to svpool.com/, and sign up. It’s very, very easy, so please do.”

Although coming to the mining pool scene rather recently, SVPool brings much experience in competing with other pools. “[W]e started a beta launch for invitation, customer only, in September, and that helped us debug the system… SVPool has a global infrastructure, but more importantly for a lot of you, it’s optimized for Chinese miners. So we have a node right inside China, so as to make sure you have the best, the most optimized performance. And of course, the whole purpose of SVPool is to run and support Bitcoin SV protocol. And also, we provide world-class bilingual customer service in Chinese and English, so it is very much, from your perspective, built for Chinese miners,” according to Chin.

He noted that SVPool supported the Bitcoin SV implementation, designed to maintain the principle of ‘longest chain wins’ as decided by users on their computers. SVPool, he said, “supports stable, scalable, and secure protocol, and it’s a professional Bitcoin platform, and it supports big blocks that are miner-configurable, and in the future, it will increase your revenue as miners.”

Chin said when the block reward halves in 2020, miners will want to make sure their earnings don’t take a hit. “[W]e will help you increase your earnings, even when we’re looking at the halving in 2020,” he said.

If you’re interested in learning more about Bitcoin SV and all the new developments in nChain, join the CoinGeek conference in London from November 28 to 30, with the special, invitation-only Miners Day event on November 27. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet the members of the BCH community and discuss not just the ongoing reality of Miners Choice for Bitcoin going forward but also why enterprise applications needing Bitcoin should stop moving in order for the ecosystem to grow. Also, join the (free) bComm Association and be part of the crypto revolution.

Dr. Craig Wright explains why Bitcoin needs to be stable

Dr. Craig Wright explains why Bitcoin needs to be stable

Last November 2, CoinGeek sponsored a Bitcoin BCH Miners Choice Summit at The Grand Harbour in Hong Kong. The dynamic half-day conference featured the industry’s most exclusive guest speakers, including nChain Chief Scientist Dr. Craig Wright.

In his presentation, Wright discussed what Bitcoin was meant to be, and why miners should support the original Satoshi Vision for Bitcoin by mining with Bitcoin SV and joining SVPool. He stressed the importance of not leaving the future to the developers who want to make major changes every six months and increasing its complexity.

“Bitcoin needs to be stable. It needs to be a system that won’t just be built on and changed every few days. To be stable as money, Bitcoin needs to be the same next year and the year after,” Wright told the audience. “It’s about a stable protocol, stable protocols matter. We want people in business, we want people to be able to take contracts and money and use it.”

Dr. Wright asked the audience to look to the future—a future in which mining companies held the same respect the banks used to before the financial collapse, saying miners should focus on creating businesses that can be passed down to their children rather than focusing on the get-rich-quick empty promises of ICOs.

Watch Dr. Craig Wright’s speech, “Back to the Future of Bitcoin: Why Miners Should Support Satoshi Vision,” below. You can also catch the nChain chief scientist along with other industry thought leaders at the upcoming CoinGeek Week Conference, happening on November 28-30 (with the exclusive, invitation-only Miners Day on November 27) in London.

Gear up for the main Bitcoin BCH Professional Stress Test with Bitcoin SV

Gear up for the main Bitcoin BCH Professional Stress Test with Bitcoin SV

With the protocol upgrade now behind us, the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network is all set for the final part of the Bitcoin Cash Professional Stress Test, the biggest test ever conducted on a public blockchain.

The team behind Stresstestbitcoin.cash, which operates independently of the BCH implementation groups, will run the main test on November 17 at 12:00 UTC with a goal of processing over 24 million transactions within a 24-hour period on the main BCH chain to showcase the network’s current capacity. On its website, the team said the stress test “will be a positive signal for merchants, businesses and investors, giving them confidence in the Bitcoin BCH network and its ability to scale on-chain.”

The BCH Professional Stress Test has already conducted a Taste Test last November 1, followed by a Warm Up Test last November 10. The pre-test took place over four-hour period and generated over 1.5 million transactions, or around 400,000 transactions per hour.

During this test, SVPool and BMG Group successfully generated five full 32MB blocks—proof “that there are mining systems on the BCH network today that are ready to mine blocks larger than 32MB,” according to the pre-stress test report. SVPool, a personal initiative of Dr. Craig Wright, and nChain’s BMG Group run Bitcoin SV (Satoshi Vision), the full node implementation designed to fulfill the vision set out by Satoshi Nakamoto’s original Bitcoin white paper.

Unlike other competing BCH implementations which seek to make unnecessary changes to Bitcoin, Bitcoin SV’s roadmap is to restore the original Satoshi protocol, keep it stable, enable it to massively scale, and allow major businesses to confidently build on top of BCH.

Of the five 32MB blocks, four were generated within less than one hour. The team stressed, “These 4 blocks were all mined by BMG pool in rapid succession showing that their infrastructure is ready for blocks larger than 32MB.” Other mining groups that use Bitcoin SV—CoinGeek and SVPool—also mined very large blocks during the pre-test. SVPool mined a 20.6MB block, and CoinGeek mined a 15.4MB block.

Meanwhile, mining pools that run Bitcoin ABC achieved much smaller blocks during the pre-test: ViaBTC mined a single 8MB block, while most other blocks mined using Bitcoin ABC were at most 1-2MB during the pre-test.

Based on the pre-test results, it’s highly recommended that everyone get ready for the main stress test event on November 17 by running Bitcoin SV. After all, the preview test has already confirmed that Bitcoin SV is correct about its scaling roadmap: the BCH blockchain can handle much larger blocks and can more quickly scale for big enterprise use.

And after the BCH Professional Stress Test, come to the CoinGeek Week conference from November 28-30 (with a special advance Miner’s Day on November 27)—it’s the perfect venue to meet the thought leaders and discuss the implications of the world’s first Bitcoin Hash War fought according to Nakamoto Consensus.

CoinGeek Week shaping up to be a historic event

CoinGeek Week shaping up to be a historic event

November is an important month for Bitcoin BCH and its enthusiasts. The blockchain is about to see a major network upgrade, which will be followed by a stress test to see how strong the network is. Those following current Bitcoin BCH events know that the network has already been proven to be substantially more capable than other cryptocurrency networks and a large part of that success can be attributed to the miners who have helped to ensure network stability.

In two weeks, CoinGeek is holding its CoinGeek Week Conference—the perfect place to hear from thought leaders about the implications of the worlds first Bitcoin Hash War fought according to Nakamoto Consensus. Recently added to the lineup is Miner’s Day, an invitation-only event dedicated to miners and mining activity, which is perfectly timed to follow the work being seen on the Bitcoin BCH blockchain. It gives miners the opportunity to hear from the experts on how this month’s activity has gone and what’s in store for future developments.

Miner’s Day is also a chance for miners, mining pools and their representatives to meet other miners, creating new alliances in the process. It is undoubtedly one of the most important conferences this fall for anyone in the mining community. Attendance is open only to invitees—if you would like to learn more or secure a seat, check out the CoinGeek Week Miner’s Day page.

After Miner’s Day on November 27, the following day is dedicated to application developers, while November 29 is specifically for application merchants. The last day will delve deep into the future of Bitcoin BCH and cryptocurrency, giving attendees an opportunity to communicate with experts and help forge the path for digital currency.

The CoinGeek Week Conference is important for anyone already involved in crypto, as well as those looking to get started. As the only cryptocurrency that is being developed to truly serve as a digital currency, Bitcoin BCH has the most potential to make a difference in the retail industry. Networking events held during the conference will be the perfect time to shake hands and expand business relationships.

CoinGeek Week will be held at The Mermaid at Puddle Dock in London. Tickets are required and space is limited, so don’t delay. For those attendees who purchase tickets for the entire conference, CoinGeek’s Calvin Ayre will hold an after party on the night of November 30, which is destined to be one of the greatest parties of the year.

Ticket purchasing using Bitcoin BCH can be made directly on the CoinGeek website. If you prefer to pay with Visa, MasterCard or American Express, Eventbrite is the solution. Remember—time is running out and no one can afford to miss this incredible opportunity to be a part of history.

SVPool nears 20% of global BCH hash power

SVPool nears 20% of global BCH hash power

Bitcoin BCH mining pool SVPool holds 19.44% of global Bitcoin BCH hash power as of November 12, second only to the CoinGeek pool holding 29.17%.

Trailing behind are BMG Pool (11.81%), AntPool (6.94%), Bitcoin.com (6.25%), ViaBTC (4.86%), Mempool.com (4.86%), BTC.com (4.86%), okminer (3.47%), Waterhole (2.78%), F2Pool (0.69%), and P2Pool (0.69%). Other pools account for the remaining 4.17% of BCH hash power.

SVPool nears 20% of global BCH hash power

On a seven-day basis, SVPool holds 13.8% of BCH hash power.

SVPool nears 20% of global BCH hash power

SVPool, a personal initiative of nChain chief scientist Dr. Craig Wright, allows miners of BCH who believe in the original Satoshi Nakamoto vision for Bitcoin, to generate greater revenue for the long term. It initially offers zero fees to miners, and has launched with a Pay-per-last-N shares (PPLNS) reward system, with Pay-per-share plus (PPS+) options to come in the next few weeks.

As Dr. Wright puts it, “Miners need to be empowered to drive things forward,” rather than be subject to developers’ dictates.

SVPool is for miners who believe in allowing immediately for massive scaling, as part of ensuring they remain profitable, where bigger blocks also mean higher-volume transactions and more transaction fees to collect for miners. Increasing the default maximum block size to 128MB is a step to larger blocks later on. This is crucial for when the block reward halves in two years and every four years afterwards. SVPool also boasts of having a world-class, highly responsive customer service team in both English and Chinese, to ensure miners have the best experience.

The pool runs Bitcoin SV (Satoshi Vision), the full node implementation that maintains the original Satoshi protocol, keeping it stable, while enabling the BCH network to scale and become truly professionalized. The Bitcoin SV implementation allows global enterprises to confidently operate and build their major projects on a stable, scalable BCH protocol.

Interested in learning more about Satoshi Vision, Bitcoin SV and SVPool? Join the gathering of miners at the upcoming Miners Day, happening as part of the CoinGeek Week Conference in London on Nov. 27-30. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet the members of the BCH community and discuss not just the ongoing reality of Miners Choice for Bitcoin going forward but also why enterprise applications needing Bitcoin should stop moving in order for the ecosystem to grow.

CoinGeek recently awarded £5 million to Tokenized, an on-chain token system designed exclusively for the BCH network and proudly uses the original Satoshi Vision design of Bitcoin. CoinGeek’s tokenization contest is still open, with a secondary award of £1 million up for grabs.

nChain earlier this week affirmed Bitcoin SV’s increasing dominance and appeal to miners. As of the time of nChain’s statement, Bitcoin SV was already supported by over 40% of the BCH hash total. “The Bitcoin SV consensus rules stand a very strong chance of becoming the dominant implementation on the BCH blockchain,” the statement read.

nChain releases statement on protocol upgrade and hash war

nChain releases statement on protocol upgrade and hash war

nChain has released a public notice intended for cryptocurrency exchanges and bitcoin cash wallet operators. The company is offering its recommendation on how these companies should handle the hash war and the potential of a BCH split.

You can read their statement below in its entirety:

On November 15, 2018, the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network will undergo a scheduled protocol upgrade. This protocol upgrade has been different to previous upgrades due to differences in opinion as how best to evolve the Bitcoin Cash network to continue to meet the demands of enterprises and consumers who support Bitcoin Cash. We have developed Bitcoin SV, a new full node implementation for Bitcoin Cash, designed to support the original “Satoshi Vision” of Bitcoin. We are asking BCH miners to vote for the Bitcoin SV implementation over competing implementations (such as Bitcoin ABC) using their hash power under Nakamoto consensus rules.
As the November 15 date nears, we provide exchange operators and wallet providers this update about Bitcoin SV and the protocol upgrade’s short-term material impact on their operations.

What is Bitcoin SV?

With Bitcoin SV, we are not seeking to create a new Bitcoin variant and we are not intending to create a new Bitcoin SV token. Instead, Bitcoin SV merely gives BCH miners another choice of implementation (competing with Bitcoin ABC and other existing BCH implementations) for miners who want to support the original Satoshi Vision for Bitcoin.   As set forth in the original Bitcoin white paper, it is up to miners’ voting with their hash power (the Nakamoto consensus mechanism) to decide rules for the network.

At our BitcoinSV.io website, you can find out more information about the Bitcoin SV implementation, and a link to our GitHub repository where the Bitcoin SV code can be downloaded.

What Will Happen After the November 15 Protocol Upgrade?

  • A temporary Bitcoin Cash chain split is imminent on November 15th between Bitcoin SV and Bitcoin ABC. (Bitcoin Unlimited, another key BCH implementation, intends to remain neutral and be compatible with both Bitcoin SV and Bitcoin ABC rule sets, as a configurable option.)
  • There will likely be a period of time before this temporary chain split is resolved, while miners are voting with their hash power.
  • Significant miner hash power (over 40% of the current BCH hash total) is supporting Bitcoin SV. Therefore, the Bitcoin SV consensus rules stand a very strong chance of becoming the dominant implementation on the BCH blockchain.
  • No transaction replay protection is in place on Bitcoin ABC or Bitcoin SV.

Which Chain Should be Recognized as Bitcoin Cash?

We believe that exchanges, as well as other BCH business operators, should recognize as Bitcoin Cash (and the ticker symbol BCH) the longest chain with the most legitimate, sustained Proof of Work. The Nakamoto consensus procedure is how Bitcoin’s decentralized system is meant to work, rather than leaving the Bitcoin Cash name and BCH ticker symbol forever in the control of any group(s) who may have initiated it or claim to control it.
We do not ask exchanges to pick a side between Bitcoin SV, Bitcoin ABC or other implementations. In fact, exchanges should remain neutral because their function is not to decide the technical roadmap for Bitcoin Cash or choose between implementations of BCH.

Exchanges: What Should They Do Before the November 15 Protocol Upgrade?

  • Immediately install a Bitcoin SV node: We highly recommend that exchanges immediately install a Bitcoin SV node to be prepared in the case that SV becomes dominant so that exchanges can continue Bitcoin Cash trading with minimal delay and disruption to users.
  • Consider suspending BCH deposits/withdrawals. Neither Bitcoin SV nor Bitcoin ABC have implemented transaction replay protection, as the intention is for only one chain to survive. We recommend that exchanges evaluate risks and consider, as a precaution, whether to suspend Bitcoin Cash deposits/withdrawals until one chain emerges as dominant. If exchanges continue to operate during this period, it is highly recommended that transactions continue to support existing consensus rules and are broadcast to both chains until such time a dominant chain emerges.

Wallet Operators: What Should They Do for the November 15 Protocol Upgrade?

  • Immediately install a Bitcoin SV node. We highly recommend that BCH wallet operators also immediately install a Bitcoin SV node to be prepared in the case that SV becomes dominant to avoid disruption to users.
  • Notify Users of Possible Delays. It would be prudent to notify users that they may experience some delays in sending and receiving BCH after the protocol upgrade and resulting hard fork.
  • Risks of Wallets Accepting DSV Transactions.   Bitcoin.com has announced intention for its wallet to run the new Bitcoin ABC v 0.18.2 client after the protocol upgrade and before one chain emerges as dominant.  The new Bitcoin ABC client adds a controversial new OP_code (OP_DATASIGVERIFY).  Bitcoin.com has stated that its wallet will add OP_DATASIGVERIFY as a default to all transactions sent from its wallet.  By stating that all transactions will utilise OP_DATASIGVERIFY, there is a real risk of Bitcoin.com users losing their funds if the chain supporting OP_DATASIGVERIFY does not eventually survive.  This same risk would apply to users of any other wallet that also runs the new Bitcoin ABC 0.18.2 client and includes OP_DATASIGVERIFY in their transactions as default after the protocol upgrade and before one chain emerges as dominant.

The Bitcoin SV project is committed to the success of Bitcoin Cash and fulfilling the original Satoshi vision for Bitcoin. Our team members stand ready to answer any questions you may have. Please email [email protected] with any questions.

SVPool global BCH hash power up to 10%; OKEx’s Jack Liu backs Bitcoin SV

Another day, another period of growth for public Bitcoin BCH mining pool SVPool.

Data on Coin Dance showed that as of Nov. 6, SVPool holds 10.42% of global Bitcoin BCH hash power. Following behind are ViaBTC (9.72%), OKMiner (7.64%), Bitcoin.com (5.56%), BTC.com (4.86%), Antpool (4.17%), Waterhole (2.08%), P2Pool and GMO IG (1.39%), and Huobi and Northern Bitcoin (0.69%). BMG Pool takes the top spot with 13.19%, followed by CoinGeek and BTC.top with 11.11% respectively.

SVPool global BCH hash power up to 10%; OKEx’s Jack Liu backs Bitcoin SV

SVPool is a personal initiative of nChain Chief Scientist Dr. Craig Wright. It offers zero fees to miners and launching with initial Pay-per-last-N-shares (PPLNS), and plans to add more features and Pay-per-share plus (PPS+) options in the coming weeks. Customer hash for the public mining pool, which opened for business last Oct. 22, is currently around 30,000 miners.

SVPool is managed by CoinGeek Mining and proudly runs the Bitcoin SV full node implementation, which is also experiencing a growth in popularity—and support—within the BCH community.

Over the weekend, Jack C. Liu, former chief strategy officer of digital asset exchange OKEx and current advisor to Bitcoin Cash Association, announced his support of the full node implementation designed to fulfil the Satoshi Vision for Bitcoin.

Cobra Bitcoin, the anonymous handler of the bitcoin.org website, also signaled his support for Bitcoin SV. In a tweet on Nov. 2, the developer announced that he “will be running and supporting Bitcoin SV,” noting that “we need to stop adding too many features all at once, and the protocol as implemented by Bitcoin SV makes the least changes.”

This marked a change of heart for Cobra Bitcoin, who, in August, promised to release his own implementation for Bitcoin BCH that would include replay protection and would also prevent transactions from being replayed across different chains when a split takes place. It appeared, however, that the anonymous developer is fed up of Bitmain “trying to become a more powerful version of Blockstream” and forcing “changes through without consensus.”

Unlike other competing BCH implementations, such as Bitcoin ABC, that seek to experiment with unnecessary technical changes to the Bitcoin protocol, Bitcoin SV’s roadmap will restore the original Satoshi protocol, keep it stable, enable the BCH network to massively scale, and professionalize Bitcoin. The Bitcoin SV implementation will allow global enterprises to confidently operate and build their major projects on a stable, scalable BCH protocol.

To protect this vision of a scalable, workable money for the entire world, CoinGeek and its founder, Antiguan entrepreneur Calvin Ayre, have poured resources and money into several projects—from Terab to Cash Shuffle—to spread the message of BCH. CoinGeek recently awarded £5 million to Tokenized, an on-chain token system designed exclusively for the BCH network and proudly uses the original Satoshi Vision design of Bitcoin. CoinGeek’s tokenization contest is still open, with a secondary award of £1 million up for grabs.

Miners Day at CoinGeek Week Conference an important event for all miners

CoinGeek has been planning its November CoinGeek Week conference for the past six months, but recently had to make a significant change. Based on input from cryptocurrency miners, the event will feature an additional day, dedicated specifically to the mining community. The day’s activities will provide a look at what is going on with Bitcoin BCH mining and where the mining community is headed.

The CoinGeek Week Conference will take place from November 28-30 at The Mermaid, Puddle Dock in London. On November 27, a special invitation-only event for miners, mining pool representatives, equipment manufacturers, mining software developers, and others involved in Bitcoin mining—Miners Day—will be held in London, featuring a number of seminars highlighting efforts to enhance Bitcoin BCH mining activities and providing expert participation on how miners can get the most out of their mining efforts.

Coming on the heels of the Bitcoin BCH upgrade scheduled for the middle of the month, Miners Day is going to be a fantastic opportunity to look at where the network has been and how the upgrades are impacting mining activity. Find out how you can join this invitation-only event here.

Other days of the conference will target different aspects of Bitcoin BCH and the role it plays in a global retail digital economy. Bitcoin BCH is the only cryptocurrency that is dedicated to producing a digital currency that can be used by anyone, anywhere and is continuously receiving more support by merchants and crypto enthusiasts for its rapid network capabilities and extremely low transaction costs.

CoinGeek’s conferences were first launched in May of this year. They have quickly garnered significant attention in the crypto ecosystem because of the information they deliver and their ability to attract some of the most highly qualified experts in the field. This November’s conference will offer a series of discussions, Q&A sessions and networking opportunities that make it a valuable tool for anyone looking to step deeper into the cryptocurrency space.

There are only just about three weeks left until the conference kicks off. Attendance requires a reservation and response has already been tremendous, given as it’s the perfect opportunity to meet the members of the BCH community and discuss not just the ongoing reality of Miners Choice for Bitcoin going forward but also why enterprise applications needing Bitcoin should stop moving in order for the ecosystem to grow.

Don’t delay—you can purchase your ticket today using either Bitcoin BCH on the CoinGeek website or, if you prefer, with a credit card through Eventbrite. Come be part of history.

Growth continues: SVPool global BCH hash power breaches 8%

The growth continues for SVPool, the public mining pool for Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

As of Friday, SVPool already accounts for 8.33% of the Bitcoin BCH global hash power, according to data from Coin Dance. Trailing behind SVPool are Bitcoin.com (6.94%), ViaBTC and BTC.com (5.56%), followed by BTC.top and Waterhole (3.47%), Antpool and Northern Bitcoin (2.08%), P2Pool (1.39%), with Houbi and F2Pool bringing up the rear with 0.69%. CoinGeek still leads the pack with 24.31%, followed by BMG Pool and OKMiner with 12.5% each. Other mining pools account for 9.03% of the BCH hash power.

SVPool BCH hash power breaches 8% as mining pool tops 30,000 miners

On a seven-day basis, SVPool is also up to 4.4%. This period of growth comes as the public mining pool customers hash is now around 30,000 miners—less than two weeks after it opened for business.

SVPool BCH hash power breaches 8% as mining pool tops 30,000 miners

SVPool is a personal initiative of nChain Chief Scientist Dr. Craig Wright. It operates under the “miners choice, miners first philosophy,” offering zero fees to miners and launching with initial Pay-per-last-N-shares (PPLNS). It plans to add more features and Pay-per-share plus (PPS+) options in the coming weeks.

SVPool is open to all public miners on the Bitcoin BCH network who want to generate more long-term revenue. The mining pool, however, is not just for BCH miners—BTC miners who believe in Bitcoin’s original vision are also invited to begin mining BCH with SVPool.

The public mining pool is managed by CoinGeek Mining and proudly runs the Bitcoin SV full node implementation, which is designed to fulfil the Satoshi Vision for Bitcoin.

Contrary to popular belief, Bitcoin SV does not introduce anything new that was not included in Satoshi Nakamoto’s original roadmap for Bitcoin. Unlike other competing BCH implementations, such as Bitcoin ABC, that seek to experiment with unnecessary technical changes to the Bitcoin protocol, Bitcoin SV’s roadmap will restore the original Satoshi protocol, keep it stable, enable the BCH network to massively scale, and professionalize Bitcoin. The Bitcoin SV implementation will allow global enterprises to confidently operate and build their major projects on a stable, scalable BCH protocol.

To protect this vision of a scalable, workable money for the entire world, CoinGeek and its founder, Antiguan entrepreneur Calvin Ayre, have poured resources and money into several projects—from Terab to Cash Shuffle—to spread the message of BCH. Recently, CoinGeek awarded £5 million to Tokenized, an on-chain token system designed exclusively for the BCH network and proudly uses the original Satoshi Vision design of Bitcoin. CoinGeek’s tokenization contest is still open, with a secondary award of £1 million up for grabs.

Interested in learning more about Satoshi Vision, Bitcoin SV and SVPool? Join the gathering of miners at the upcoming CoinGeek Week Miners Day, happening as part of the CoinGeek Week Conference in London at the end of November. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet the members of the BCH community, and discuss not just the ongoing reality of Miners Choice for Bitcoin going forward but also why enterprise applications needing Bitcoin should stop moving in order for the ecosystem to grow. Secure your seat to the four-day conference today via Eventbrite. Also, join the (free) bComm Association.
