How to use Bitcoin SV with Ledger

What is Bitcoin SV?

Bitcoin SV (BSV) is a cryptocurrency that was created following a hard fork of the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) blockchain in 2018, which itself had forked from the BTC blockchain a year earlier. The aim of Bitcoin SV is to fulfill the original vision of the Bitcoin protocol and design, as described in Satoshi Nakamoto's white paper. It aims to offer scalability and stability in line with the original description of Bitcoin as a peer-to-peer electronic cash system, as well as a distributed data network that can support enterprise-level advanced blockchain applications.

To achieve this, Bitcoin SV has removed artificial block size limits and re-enabled Script commands and other technical capabilities that were previously disabled or restricted by the BTC blockchain developers. Its block size is 4GB, compared to Bitcoin's 1MB, and it can process up to 10,000 transactions per second. This allows the network to process many transactions per second and maintaining very low transaction fees for micropayments costing only a fraction of a cent. And also enables advanced capabilities such as tokens, smart contracts, computation, and other data use cases.

BSV is the native cryptocurrency of the platform, usable to make payments across the network. All transactions within the blockchain are settled in BSV. Even dApps built on Bitcoin SV use BSV tokens for native transactions. BSV tokens are distributed as mining rewards for users mining the tokens.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you first buy cryptocurrency, you’re issued with two keys: public and private.

  • A public key serves as an address that can be shared with other parties to perform transactions.
  • A private key represents a randomly generated number that signs transactions and protects your assets from malicious attacks. If it gets compromised or lost, you won’t be able to access your cryptocurrency wallet to spend, withdraw, or transfer your coins.

To safeguard and keep track of your keys, you can use online or offline wallets. Online wallets, also known as hot wallets, store private keys on systems or devices that are connected to the internet. Hot wallets are easy and convenient to use, however, they come with several drawbacks. Besides being susceptible to attacks and a honeypot for hackers, with hot wallets, the custody of private keys is often entrusted to a third party such as a crypto exchange, which means you never have full control over your funds. The safer choice are specialized hardware wallets that store private keys offline. Stealing private keys from a hardware wallet would require physical access to the wallet and corresponding PIN or the recovery phrase. What’s more, with hardware wallet, you don’t need to rely on third party custodians.

Ledger Nano is the industry-leading hardware wallet. With more than five million customers, Ledger Nano wallets have several layers of security that protect private keys, and hence your assets:

  • Your private keys are stored on secure element chips.
  • A PIN code and a 24-word recovery phrase are required to access the wallet.
  • Ledger Nano cryptocurrency wallets have been built using highly durable materials for protection against physical damage.

With full isolation between private keys and your computer/mobile, Ledger Nano crypto wallets keep your keys secure and give you complete control over your assets.
