According to statistics, a mining company called Taal currently controls well over 51% of the Bitcoinsv (BSV) network’s hashrate. As of Wednesday, the Taal mining pool captured more than 78% of the BSV hashrate in terms of distribution across five known pools and 13% of the unknown hashrate. Data from the sv.coin.dance/blocks website shows that Taal commanded 69% of the network’s hash power for the past seven days. Block details show that the vast majority of BSV blocks were found by Taal’s operation.

In addition to Taal’s Hashpower, the other mining pools that are mining the BSV chain include Viabtc, SBI Crypto, Btc.com, F2pool and Svpool, at least for today. During the week, other well-known pools such as Solomining, Hathor, and Matter Pool also found BSV blocks. Last week, the Swiss-based global industry organization Bitcoin Association (for BSV) stated that the BSV network had been attacked by a malicious entity.
“A malicious actor recently carried out block reorganization attacks on the Bitcoin SV network,” the Bitcoinsv group stated on July 8th. “[It] appears to be deliberate acts to cover up the illegal double issuance of coins. Bitcoin SV’s infrastructure team has identified one of the addresses associated with the attack that has long been associated with ransomware and other attacks on the BTC, BCH and BSV chains – so the malicious actor is involved in illegal activity, on which BTC and BCH could also be involved, and not just the BSV network, ”added the BSV organization.
Gravity exposes Bitcoinsv trading and 51% declarations of attack
After the attack, the Twitter account @dash_community tweeted that the Bitcoinsv chain should have had protection like Chainlocks, similar to the Dash network. “To prevent harmful block reorganizations like this one, BSV should implement chainlocks that Dash pioneered (but other projects like [Firo] also use), which make reorganizations impossible. Evolve or die, ”the account tweeted last week.
The conversation about Bitcoinsv (BSV) was a very topical discussion on Twitter.
Following the reorganization issue, reports have indicated that the Huobi and Okex exchanges have suspended withdrawals and deposits for BSV. “Huobi Global [has] deactivated BSV deposits and withdrawals; no warning was given. They fight BSV because they know it’s the real Bitcoin, ”wrote a Bitcoinsv supporter.
On July 13th, the cold store provider Gravity informed its Twitter followers that it was deactivating the BSV trade.
“Urgent message,” tweeted Gravity. “Our liquidity providers have just informed us that due to several large exchanges, the BSV deposits are deactivating [and] Withdrawals also block access to BSV liquidity until further notice. This means that it is currently not possible to trade BSV on Gravity. We sincerely apologize for the short notice announcement [and] will update you with more information when we have it. Trading in all other digital assets on Gravity remains unaffected. “

In the meantime, the Coingeek streaming channel, which focuses on reporting on Bitcoinsv (BSV) and the BSV ecosystem, was also discussing the situation. Kurt Wuckert Jr. hosted the show and responded to the criticism that was expressed on the BSV chain. Wuckert Jr. made similar statements on Twitter the day before.
“51% attacks do not really exist without the exchange-based Bitcoin economy,” tweeted Wuckert Jr .. Huobi [and] Okex has stopped withdrawals / deposits but they will be back. Honest nodes reject malicious blocks and further attempts are wasted. Things will soon go back to normal, ”he added.
Bitcoiner Theo Goodman commented on the 51% attack discussion that came from the Coingeek streaming channel video, not impressed by the host’s explanation of the events. When someone tweeted, “Look at this, Kurt explains what happens at the beginning,” Goodman responded to the video content.
“He explains it, but then adds an opinion,” wrote Goodman. “There is no 51% attack” and from 9:14 onwards he contradicts himself about trust. Then later he [basically] Says not to worry unless you are in the infrastructure, they will find out. “
