Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) Calls Craig Wright An Attention Seeking Troll
Craig Wright has always been in the news cycle, mostly due to his outrageous claims. The biggest one being the claim that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. Recently, speaking at a CoinGeek conference in Toronto, Wright claimed that money from major cryptocurrency institutions like Binance, Bitfinex, and Tether was being used to fund slavery and prostitution.
“Right now, 30% of Binance money funds women in prostitution; 30% of Binance and Tether funds women in slavery…”
Mostly when Wright speaks, it is best to be ignored. His claims are most often than not are pulled out of thin air. It is specially targeted to be provocative to dive into the news cycle.
giving attention is probably what he wants… We ignore stupid stuff, and focus on things that matter. #BUIDL

Another vocal and notable recipient of similar court documents from the BSV camp is Dr. Peter McCormack. It was his Tweet that CZ had replied to. Dr. Peter allegedly called Wright a fraud. May 21st saw McCormack tweet that he was ready to face off with Wright in court. However, it appears as though he is planning on withdrawing his court case.
Mr. McCormack, a recognized figure in the space, claims that Craig Wright is not Satoshi Nakamoto. Now, Mr. Wright is expecting to have £100,000 from damages after what McCormack wrote. He also expects McCormack not to publish any similar content in the future.
Claims of being Satoshi has proven difficult for the Australian in the past. Despite running with his Satoshi Nakamoto roleplay for almost five years now, he has yet to show any proof that he is who he says he is. But that hasn’t stopped him talking.
