CZ reacts to Craig Wright's claim to be Satoshi Nakamoto

Craig Wright is one of polarizing figures in the cryptocurrency community. Among many other things he’s started to claim that he’s Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin.

A Twitter user with nickname Hodlonaut has called Wright a fraud for his widely disputed claims of being the person behind Satoshi.

Craig's legal team had served Hodlonaut with legal papers containing a slew of allegations pertaining to online harassment and conducting a targeted campaign on calumny. He placed a $5,000 reward for anyone who reveals the identity of the Hodlonaut Twitter account.

Then a majority of the crypto community came together to create a web portal and crowdfunding campaign in a bid to cover Hodlonaut’s legal costs -

Many of Hodlonaut’s supporters changed their profile pictures and usernames, claiming that they were all Hodlonaut, fuelling the #JeSuisHodlonaut campaign.

Craig is attracting attention from some of the largest names in crypto:

What's behind BSV?

Bitcoin Cash was the result of a scaling disagreement. The Bitcoin Core team believed the lightning network was the best solution while the Bitcoin cash team wanted to raise block sizes.

Craig Wright was part of the Bitcoin Cash community for a while but even then he couldn’t agree and he forked the chain again, creating Bitcoin Cash SV (BSV).
