  • Bitcoin SV listing on Hotbit Korea opens the token to the Asian market.
  • Bitcoin SV recovery from monthly lows at $150 takes a breather under $180.

Bitcoin SV has been on a run-up from the lows traded on September 4 and September 5 at $150. Before the dip, BSV/USD exchanged hands above $200 and even changed closer to $210. The widespread declines in the cryptocurrency market left no stone unturned, sending Bitcoin Cash on a rabbit exploration mission below crucial levels such as $200, $180, and $160. Support at $150 was instrumental to the ongoing recovery that has seen BSC trade within a whisker of $180. At the time of writing, BSV is trading at $173 amid a push to hold the price above $170.

Korean exchange adds BSV while supporting BSV-fiat trading

Hot Korea, a Korean-based exchange, has listed BSV as a tradable asset. What is intriguing is that BSV can be traded against fiat currencies. The trading has continued to gain traction from the debut date of September 4. The pairs currently supported include BSV/BTC and BSV/KRW (Korean won).

The listing on Hotbit is incredibly massive for Bitcoin Cash as it has been missing in the major exchanges operating in the region, mainly due to regulatory bottlenecks. Note that Hotbit Korea is a subsidiary firm to Hotbit Global, a cryptoasset exchange. Therefore, BSV has the rear chance of tapping into Hotbit Global’s massive liquidity.

The news of this listing has reverberated across the BSV community sparking new interest in the digital asset. The spike from $150 to highs close to $180 is attributed to the listing.

Bitcoin SV technical analysis

Bitcoin SV is trading at $175, marginally above the 38.2% Fibonacci short term resistance of the last swing high to $208.05 to a swing low of $150. The price is also immediately supported by the 50 Simple Moving Average.

On the upside, the price action from $150 is limited by the 50% Fibonacci level (just under $180). Gains above $180 might be cut short by the seller congestion at the 100 SMA in the 4-hour range. Relatively smooth price action is expected to complete the leg up to $200, mostly if the $190 zone’s resistance is overcome.

Bitcoin SV on-chain data analysis

According to data provided by IntoTheBlock, the most significant resistance zone lies between $179 and $184. The metrics highlight that 221,120 BSV was purchased in this range at an average price of $181.68. The wallets in this zone are currently Out of the Money, therefore, unlikely to sell in the near term. A break above this zone could propel BSV to highs between $189 and $194.

Concerning on-chain support, Bitcoin SV is treated to strong support at $168. The zone is elastic enough to hold up to $173 (the maximum) price 285,190 BSV was bought. However, if push comes to shove at $163 will come in handy before Bitcoin Cash explores the rabbit hole back to $150.
