Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin has received one of Craig Wright’s “Letter of Claim,” to which he declined to respond.
The Letter of Claim requested that Buterin retract alleged defamatory statements made against Wright and that he publicly apologize and admit that Right is Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of bitcoin. Calvin Ayre, who spearheaded the Satoshi Vision project with Wright seemed fueled by Buterin’s failure to respond. Ayre tweeted:
“Vitalik is loud, annoying, immature and just plain unlawful, but is ignoring his opportunity to prove his case. I would say Vitalik already knows #CraigisSatoshi and has been attacking only as a way to unlawfully attempt to stop superior technology.”

Buterin has a tendency to refer to those in Wright camp as “BSV” shills. At a panel discussion, he chided the forum for including them, tweeting “Kinda disappointed @Deconomy_forum is again giving airtime to BSV shills, this time a panel of them.
At least there’s some hilarious quotes… my favorite was that Segwit is bad because separating signatures from transactions “has legal ramifications”
Even though Buterin has not responded to Wright’s letter, Peter McCormack, who also received a similar letter, did respond and stated, “attempts to silence and bully people to protect his fraud and lies is an attack on Bitcoin.”
