Collections of videos and articles following the development and progress of Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (Bitcoin SV or BSV): to understand what it is and to see what opportunities it could offer beyond what Bitcoin BTC and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) can.
There are over 1000 different crypto-currency or crypto-asset projects in existence at the moment. Here is a summary of the major ones and later, I will be adding some that just happened to hit my radar. It is not supposed to be objective and complete. Instead, I provide you with my opinions and bias that formed as a result of my reading and research and provide what comes to me as the most important and significant about each of them.
Bitcoin BTC is the blockchain and project on which Satoshi Nakamoto implemented his vision of Bitcoin. After he left however, Bitcoin developers continued to make changes to the Bitcoin protocol to a point where, personally, I no longer think it resembles and represents the Bitcoin that Nakamoto wrote about in his Whitepaper that describes what Bitcoin is, its key features and its incentives.
It is a cryptocurrency project focussed on incorporating smart contracts.
It is a cryptocurrency project that focusses on solving problems associated with banking and the banking systems.
This project started when a group of Bitcoin supporters, investors and users saw that Bitcoin (BTC)'s ability to be used as cash was being eroded by the changes that Bitcoin developers began implementing since about 2017. They forked Bitcoin — including its history of transactions — so that they can continue to develop Bitcoin as digital cash.
You read it often times from sources who support BTC that BCH have somehow stolen or taking advantage of the Bitcoin brandname or goodwill. I want to point out that forking Bitcoin is allowed, despite the protestations of BTC fans who do not understand this basic feature of open-source software. It also protects against the hijacking of Bitcoin as a project because other people can always fork it when they feel it is not going the right direction.
Bitcoin SV supporters split from Bitcoin Cash when they noticed that Bitcoin Cash is getting bogged down with changing the Bitcoin Protocol yet again. They believed that Bitcoin could scale with the original protocol that Satoshi Nakamoto released initially. They were laughed at and ridiculed by Bitcoin BTC and Bitcoin Cash BCH investors and developers.
It took a team of BSV developers about a year to re-write the Bitcoin protocol back to as close as they can get it to the original. On February 2020, Bitcoin SV's developers successfully implemented BSV to run on a protocol based on the original. Months on, they have shown that Bitcoin SV has one of the cheapest transaction costs compared to Bitcoin BTC and BCH. It is fast to send, and it can handle large numbers of transactions simultaneously. In other words, Bitcoin SV works as Bitcoin should.
Every argument made about, and in support for Bitcoin before 2017, can be made for Bitcoin BSV because it is the only project in existence now that is committed in implementing Bitcoin as it was described in the original Bitcoin Whitepaper.
This is not a complete list and I will revise this when I have more time. But if you are new to cryptocurrencies, this may lead you towards your early readings.
What about you — Which is your favourite cryptocurrency and why?
This series of videos are for developers to build on Bitcoin SV. It was held online on the weekend of 18th and 19th of July 2020.
This documentary the award-winning documentary Bitcoin: The End Of Money As We Know It (2015).
This documentary lays out the original arguments made for Bitcoin back in 2015. It lays out the case for Bitcoin and I recommend you to watch it if you want to understand the reasons for why Bitcoin could be a positive evolution for our financial and monetary system. It is important to note, however, that the original arguments made for Bitcoin no longer hold for Bitcoin (BTC). The people behind Bitcoin (BTC)'s development has essentially doomed Bitcoin from being useable as a currency. Its developers have crippled the network and made it too expensive to be used quickly and cheaply by people around the world that would need to use it.
A lot of the arguments made for Bitcoin here, still apply for Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) though: a project committed to keeping with the original vision of Bitcoin. I will write an article about this to explain my position because this is a controversial point to make. For now, enjoy this great documentary by Torsten Hoffmann.
"In the digital era, the success of a business is dependent on online reviews, but the system can be misused to discredit competitors. Bitcoin is fixing it."
Connor Murray explores how Bitcoin SV can overcome the problems related to online reviews.

Centbee users can now pay for their Netflix subscription, top-up their phone’s pay-as-you-go credit, buy music or give someone Uber vouchers with Centbee wallet using Bitcoin SV (BSV). Gamaroff said they realised that they could “become a service provider ourselves ...if we actually bundled value-added services directly into the wallet.”
