The divisions in the technical community of Bitcoin Cash are quite imminent as the fourth largest digital currency by market capitalization is set for a crossroads in November. Two fields were formed following the split that sees a different technical future of Bitcoin Cash. Indeed, the debate over the original version of Bitcoin Satoshi has intensified further.
nChain releases Alpha client version Bitcoin SV
Craig Wright, chief scientist at nhain has launched the alpha version of the Bitcoin SV client last Thursday, August 30th. NChain has also announced an implementation of Bitcoin Cash at full node and the creation of the SV pool that will begin this month aboard the miners. It is said that SV Pool is a mining of Bitcoin Cash developed "in line with the original Satoshi Vision."
The launch of the Bitcoin SV client of nChain is seen as a shot for Bitcoin ABC developers who are planning to introduce several changes into the upcoming BCH fork. This was openly opposed by nChain, the BCH developers and CoinGeek mining. Of note, the implementation of the complete node by Bitcoin ABC is still quite popular among the BCH miners with almost 1444 nodes running the Bitcoin ABC software.
Although the Bitcoin SV nodes started being online soon after launch, SV still has a long kilometer to cross to overcome ABC domination.
Craig Wright threatens CoinEx exchange
On Saturday, September 1, CoinEx exchanged a statement saying that they would create a version of Bitcoin SV in the case of a hard fork. Craig Wright has made some violent attacks on the CoinEx exchange defining it as a "fraud", even threatening to close the exchange.

CoinEx claimed that Bitcoin SV would translate in a modified version of the BCH protocols causing a fork in the existing protocols. The exchange noted:
"After the fork, we will release a BSV / BCH trading pair in CoinEx so you can buy or sell BSV CoinEx will not support the filing and withdrawal of BSV until its chain is stabilized and all support services, for example, are available. "
CoinEx also asked users to be ready for the fork event by asking them to deposit their holdings in BCH in the purse wallet.
"To avoid unnecessary loss of assets, CoinEx advises all users to deposit their BCH assets to CoinEx before potential bifurcation.We will provide 100% protection for your assets and make sure that you receive the BSV bifurcated good as promised. "
On the other hand, other development teams have attempted a compromise before Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin Unlimited, which runs the second most popular BCH full-node client, said it will add user-configurable support to all updates offered by nChain and ABC. The BU also encouraged the mining community to join them and support the compromise.
Cobra, the co-owner of Bitcoin.org has unveiled its plans to launch a Bitcoin Cash client without additional features, allowing users to continue using their BCH funds without fear of losing the BCH network division. Cobra claimed to have obtained support from almost 25% of hashrate BCH.
