Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork – BCHABC and BCHSV

On 15 November 2018, Bitcoin Cash undergone a hard fork and is permanently split into two chains – Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV. For a few days, this resulted in 3 Bitcoin Cash profiles on CoinGecko – Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCHABC), and Bitcoin Cash SV (BCHSV).

On 19 November 2018, 07:30 UTC, CoinGecko is merging our Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCHABC) profile in order to better reflect the market. Based on our observation, most exchanges are using Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to refer to the Bitcoin ABC implementation: https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/bitcoin-cash

This has caused the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) market value to reflect closer to the Bitcoin ABC implementation. CoinGecko has decided to merge both the Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Cash ABC profile as maintaining both profiles will lead to market confusion.

A number of exchanges have supported Bitcoin Cash SV or Bitcoin SV as a fork and a new trading pair. You can see the list of exchanges supporting BSV here: https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/bitcoin-cash-sv

We have completed all exchange mappings for Bitcoin Cash (ABC) and you can see the list of exchanges calling it BCH, BCHABC, or BAB here: https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/bitcoin-cash/trading_exchanges

Do be careful when trading these pairs. Expect more announcements to be made from companies offering greater clarity on which chain they will support in the coming days. We will monitor and update based on market situation. Coin.Dance has done an excellent job tracking this fork and is a good place to follow development: https://cash.coin.dance

  • What happens to the people that already own bitcoin cash, on coinbase, do they wake up one day and find out they have to be bitcoin ABC, or bitcoin SV. I can’t believe two so called business men would do these things, separate and decide, I’m scared to find out that these guys might do another fork, and fork every thing up, just look how they dragged down the price of Bitcoin cash, this is what happens when you have to many chiefs and not enough Indians
