Craig Wright and Riccardo Spagni Begin Dialogue on Controversial Monero Privacy Tracking Comments


If there is a story about Craig Wright, there is a good chance that it is because of some controversy.

He is known for his Trumpian style of getting attention and always staying relevant in the news cycle. In the latest edition of the soap opera that is Dr. Wright, he has escalated a feud with Monero’s Riccardo Spagni better known as Fluffypony.

When asked if Dr. Wright knows how to make crypto that is truly untraceable, he replied by saying that he knows it but the solution is not blockchain based. The conversation then shifted to Zcash and Monero, to which Spagni retaliated be saying:

“All talk, no action. This moron is just a snake-oil salesman in a cheap, ill-fitting suit, wearing a gaudy watch that he thinks looks expensive because a store clerk told him as much, bragging about money he doesn’t have & skills he can’t demonstrate. It’s just sad & pathetic.”

To which Craig Wright replied with a meme from the famous movie Despicable Me.

Udi Wertheimer, also joined the conversation saying:

“Keep trolling, horseman. I deanonymized all your txs and have the location of your sunk boat and whatever else. My team is underwater fishing for your keys, and once we find them we will dump them all for Bitcoin (BSV) and then release 78 papers describing how. Risk. Finance.”

Many in the comments pointed to Monero’s wallet bug that potentially enables exchange hacks. To these accusations, Spani replied by saying:

“That’s a bug that was responsibly disclosed and fixed. At no point did that bug have any effect on Monero’s privacy, functions, safety, or economy. Having bugs and fixing them is a normal part of software engineering.”
