Craig Wright Looks To Leverage The Legal System By Targeting Peter McCormack And Roger Ver

Bitcoin SV Legal Wars Heat Up As Craig Wright Joins The Fray

The legal wars between the various factions claiming to be the original bitcoin appear to be heating up as new camp join the ongoing dispute. The latest entrants are Roger Ver and Craig Wright from BCH. Wrights’ legal team, according to a news report by Coingeek recently received a notification from Ver Solicitors asking them to take care of the libel claim.

The article, which first appeared on Coingeek, had a brazen headline intimating that Roger Ver had sought help from UK-based lawyers. It went on to state that Roger was expected to provide a response within the next twenty-eight days.

Escalating Dispute

The lawyers representing Wright sent legal papers to Ver on May 2nd, restraining the CEO from making any new claims stating that Wright was, in fact, not Satoshi Nakamoto. The legal papers also sought £100,000 in damages for the claims already made by Roger Ver.

According to the article which seemed to favor BSV, Ver changed his opinion of Wright after the hard fork that occurred in November of last year. It is worth noting that this is the very first time that Wright has taken any kind of legal action against the Ver. The Bitcoin CEO had in the past supported claims that Wright was, Satoshi Nakamoto, the original bitcoin founder.

However, things took a U-turn after the nChain lead scientist launched Bitcoin SV after breaking away from the BCH camp. Ver is not the only person who has been targeted by the legal team representing Wright.

Another vocal and notable recipient of similar court documents from the BSV camp is Dr. Peter McCormack. 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.

He recently set out a series of tweets where he got to list all his realistic options. Based on the tweets, one of his options is to fight and lose, which would see him file for bankruptcy and have his reputation damaged. His second option is to fight and win, while the third option would be to cease discussing the matter altogether, a fact that would also lead to unexpected financial complications.

According to McCormack, his fight is against intimidation and bullying being carried out by financially secure individuals. His latest tweet went on to state that whichever decision he will make will prove to be tough for him.

He stated that his main interest is to fight bullying and intimidation by well-off people in the crypto verse. The doctor added that these are people who already possess a history of being disingenuous.

It is important to note that Wright had recently filed a copyright for the Bitcoin software and whitepaper. However, the US copyright office did not take the matter lightly. It provided a response indicating that the office does not investigate the existence of a connection between pseudonymous authors and claimants for any work that is registered with the office using a pseudonym.
