Craig Wright Takes Opportunity to Bash Bitcoin (BTC) For Censorship in Light of Binance Delisting BSV
Some people are just sore losers and Craig Wright seems to be the king of them all. Just after Binance delisted Bitcoin SV from its list of assets and many major exchanges are not giving any attention to his pet project anymore, he decided to attack Bitcoin once more.
In case you are not familiar with Wright, it suffices to say that he is one of the major leaders of Bitcoin SV, which forked away from Bitcoin Cash last year, and that he hates Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Cash (and Ethereum and literally all coins, really), despite claiming that he created it.
That’s right, Wright has claimed to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, despite not being able to prove or to pass a single day without complaining about how bad BTC is. He even got the nickname “Faketoshi” for his ludicrous claims and has become a sort of a joke between all non-BSV users lately.
In his newest cry for attention, I mean, a new critic of Bitcoin, he posted a blog post called “BTC and Censorship”. He affirmed that BTC was a fraudulent scam and that it wanted to trick investors.
He affirmed that even from the first soft fork onwards, Bitcoin has been “eroded” and that it is prone to censorship because its protocol has been altered. He claimed once more that he created Bitcoin and that only with a very stable protocol the token would be resistant to 51% attacks, which could basically destroy the respectability of the network if they are done.
He also took his time to criticize the Bitcoin’s community decided to accept Pay to Script Hash (P2PSH), which was considered by him as a breach because it could be used in the future to create situations in which invalid transactions would be accepted on the blockchain.
After that, he claimed that BTC is not Bitcoin, another unpopular claim which more than 90% of the crypto community probably disagrees.
Bitcoin SV Is Facing Difficult Times
Wright’s latest rant comes at a time in which BSV is facing difficulties. Binance and Shapeshift have delisted the asset and Kraken has started a pool to whether BSV should be delisted or not. Delisting won with the majority of the votes, mostly because of the toxic nature of the representants of the token.
In fact, Craig Wright is a major liability for Bitcoin SV. The protocol is a valid interpretation of Bitcoin, just like Bitcoin Cash is. If it is good or bad, it’s up to you. However, Wright acts in such a toxic way most of the time attacking everybody in the community that it is hard for anyone to take him seriously and BSV suffers from that.
Bitcoin SV will continue in some exchanges, despite the recent delistings, but we have to wonder how much success the token will achieve with a figure like Wright being its public face.
