BSV Ringleader Craig Wright Accuses Crypto Influencers of Attempting to Silence Him Out of Fear

    Craig Wright has been a popular character in the crypto world for quite some time, but the attention he is getting now in his multiple legal notices is not quite as positive. Wright has long-held the stance that he is the true creator of Bitcoin and that he is the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. Most of the time that he has claimed it, there has been a debate on if this is possible, but it hasn’t had a lot of activity.

    For some reason, the statements from anonymous Twitter user Hodlonaut that Wright is a “fraud” have struck a chord, leading him to go after these naysayers from a legal standpoint. His biggest attack has seemingly been against Hodlonaut, as he requested the help of the cryptocurrency community to find him with the promise of a bounty.

    The actions taken by Wright ended up being to the disadvantage of the Bitcoin SV community as well, which appears to be entirely innocent in this attack. However, the whole cryptocurrency community rebelled against them, pushing back with hashtags like #CraigIsNotSatoshiNakamoto and #delistBSV. Not long after the hashtags came out, multiple exchanges decided to follow the latter’s advice, including Binance, Kraken, and Shapeshift.

    Recently, Wright decided to speak with Bloomberg about the developments through a series of emails. The publication asked who the recipients of Wright’s lawsuits would be, and Wright stated that he had picked both Peter McCormack and Vitalik Buterin. He said he believes that these two individuals represent

    “authority within the cryptocurrency industry.”

    He added that both of them have already received a letter that said the case would ensure that Wright can speak with a judge about his alleged pseudonym. By being validated by a judge, Wright hopes to stop the judgment and naysayers on Twitter.

    Regarding the motivation he has for legal action, Wright reminded the publication of a quote of his own –

    “Challenge the science, not personalities.”

    However, he said that this concept seems to be “apparently impossible,” so he has had to take the legal path. He added that the war waged against him on Twitter is founded in a “desire to silence” his claims. He believes that these people “are afraid” of the potential to end the scams and establish a truly honest protocol.

    Though Wright was compliant with responding to discussions related to the dispute, he would not directly respond to his own stake in Bitcoin SV. Bloomberg asked how much Wright owned, and how much it costs. In response, instead of answering, he said that this circumstance “has never been about making money.” He added that, in the event that he ever wanted to cash out, he could’ve

    “sailed into the sunset, literally.”

    McCormack has yet to back down from the statements he made against Wright. During an interview with BlockTV, McCormack reiterated

    “Craig Wright is clearly not Satoshi Nakamoto.”

    He proceeded to call Wright a “fraud” and “an absolute moron.” He seemed enthused to settle the matter legally, saying

    “Let’s get in a courtroom and let’s deal with this once and for all.”
