“Everyone is Satoshi, Except Craig Wright” says Binance CEO: Exchange to Delist Bitcoin SV (BSV)

At this point, we all are aware of Craig Wright calling himself Satoshi, the creator of Bitcoin and threatening with a legal suit to a crypto community member Hodlonaut for calling him a fraud and a Faketoshi.

It further escalated when Wight’s associate Calvin Ayre announced a reward in BSV to anyone who finds Hodlonaut. This united the crypto community against Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre.

In response to this, Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao said the exchange will delist BSV if Wright continues to go with his Satoshi “shit.” And then the world's most used cryptocurrency exchange, Binance, made the official statement to delist BSV token all together.

Peter McCormack, who also received a letter from Craig Wright, shot a letter back stating Wright is “definitely not” the person behind the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. He further said that he has taken legal advice and “the claim is so vexatious that I now have 15 lawyers who are willing to represent me on pro bono basis.”

Bitfi cryptocurrency wallet also took a jab at BSV as it made the announcement on Twitter that they have decided to remove BSV from the wallet, only to follow up with “Oh wait…we just realized we never had BSV in the wallet” and then “Why would we ever add BSV?”

However, they further provided an explanation as to why they wouldn’t have removed a cryptocurrency on the basis of what they think about it.

“We just want to clarify that if we already have a coin in the wallet, we would never remove it (regardless of what we think about it). This would create a major inconvenience & safety issue for users.”

Until then, Everyone is Satoshi, except Craig Wright!

It is well known that Wright never provided any evidence to him being a Satoshi Nakamoto. On that Zhao further called out that in his strong opinion “Craig Wright is fraud” and it is easy for the real Satoshi to prove it.

“The real Satoshi can digitally sign any message to prove it. This is as simple as breathing for him/her. And we have the pub key. Until then, everyone is Satoshi, except Craig Wright!”

Alex Kruger, an economist and crypto analyst has also responded about Wright’s inability to prove he is Satoshi.

“Years ago CSW was about to “prove” he was Satoshi. He never did, and instead issued a strange “I don't have the courage” apology.”

He further said in order to prove you are Satoshi Nakamoto, you just have to sign a message with the key associated with the Genesis Block.

But why does it matter who Satoshi is? As Kruger points out, it is possible he may have access to a lot of coins enough to crash the market. In August, last year, BitMEX research concluded in its report, the dominant miner would have created about 600k to 700k Bitcoins.

“It is a good story to get imagination going, as these bitcoins would likely represent the largest ever missing treasure,” stated Kruger.
