Binance CEO says “Craig Wright is not Satoshi”, Threatens to Delist Bitcoin SV
CEO of the world’s largest Cryptocurrency exchange has threatened to delist Bitcoin SV from Binance after Craig Wright announced that he is suing Hodlonaut for “defamation”.
Craig Wright Sues Hodlonaut
The self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto Craig Wright is suing anonymous Twitter user @Hodlonaut. Calvin Ayre backed media site Coingeek reported that the papers filed by his lawyer warned that Wright had had enough of Hodlonaut’s “targeted campaign” to harass and libel Wright with “highly defamatory and abusive tweets.” The article also asserts that the twitter handle is one of the originators for the hashtag #CraigWrightIsAFraud which went viral on Twitter.
Wright is not only demanding @Holdlonaut to make an open apology but is also offering a bounty of $5000 in Bitcoin SV to find out the true identity of the anonymous user. Wright has also threatened to sue anyone that denies he is Satoshi.
The Crypto community condemned Wright’s aggression towards Holdonaut, who also happens to be the originator of the famous Bitcoin Lightning Torch which was passed to many big names like Jack Dorsey, Charlie Lee, Adam Back, etc. Many Crypto Twitter personalities stood in support of hodlonaut by changing their Twitter handles and tweeting the hashtags #Hodlonaut.
An attack against one is an attack against all. #WeAreAllHodlonaut
