I think it's pretty accurate to say that this Bitcoin fork has some good things going for it and Craig wright is not one of those things. Truth is he tainted SVs chance before it even had one by being a complete power driven maniac and trying to destroy the versions that it forked from in order to dominate.

To understand Bitcoin SV requires a deep understanding of consensus networks and bitcoin as a protocol. The facts:
- BSV is shares Satoshi Nakamoto's Genesis and the entire UTXO set in compliance with the 0.1 rule set.
- If bitcoin is to be sound money, it cannot be changed without a consensus of distributed hash
- BTC and BCH were separated by consensus of that distributed hash creating two chain tips of the same network that BOTH operate outside of consensus. Therefore either both are bitcoin, or neither are, if you understand that there can only be one chain with the genesis block and competing hash.
- BSV split off of BCH in order to make its way back to the 0.1 rule set in order to return to the status of sound money that can be trusted never to change.
- By the rules of distributed consensus set out in the white paper, there are 3 versions of bitcoin currently out of consensus. In order to "win," miners must either orphan or reorganize 2 versions into the main bitcoin blockchain. Until that point, all 3 are technically valid *and* invalid.
BSV is currently mined by CoinGeek, Squire, BMG, SVPool, Poolin, MemPool and a number of smaller miners. Mining statistics will be updated here: https://sv.coin.dance/blocks
For people worried about Craig Wright being or not being Satoshi Nakamoto, consider the fact that he was outed by various sources against his will to his own personal detriment. Here's some evidence of being Satoshi:

Eventhough Bitcoin SV is a hardfork of a hardfork (bitcoincash) of Bitcoin and the protocol is actually the closest to the original whitepaper of all existing bitcoin forks out there, you should be aware that one of the most vilified people by the cryptocommunities (Craig Wright is also known as Fake Satoshi, because he identified as he the “real” Satoshi, which he then couldn’t prove; since then most people regard him as a scammer), is in leading charge of this coin. Also the mining power is far over 51% in the hands of 1 entity, so it is a fully centralized coin. I do not trust this Bitcoin/Bitcoin Cash fork for 1 single BIT. And then that super ridiculous logo....pretty sure that ISN'T "Satoshi's Vision" at all!
