Miners of the Bitcoin SV (BSV) blockchain have been keeping faith with the Bitcoin Cash breakaway, even though it is less profitable to mine than Bitcoin (BTC). The reason for the disparity is that BSV blocks were set at a higher difficulty due to the number of miners working on it, while the Bitcoin blockchain difficulty has been adjusted to allow for the reduction in hashrate. CoinDance data has pegged the BTC profitability to be increased by 65% due to the reduction of difficulty, while the BCH chain is 4.9% more profitable to mine.
