Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre, the two spearheads behind Bitcoin SV [BSV], were met with firm opposition following Wright’s Satoshi Nakamoto claims. The opposition to “Faketoshi” is heating up to a point where BSV might be delisted from major exchanges.
Several notable crypto-proponents hit back at Wright’s “unverified” claims of being the creator of Bitcoin [BTC] and Ayre’s relentless support of the same. Ayre stated that he would be serving legal notices to anyone who disputed the claims made by the BSV camp.
Surprisingly, Binance’s CEO Changpeng Zhao, known for his measured and calm approach on Twitter, hit back at Wright’s claims. He tweeted that the nChain chief scientist is “not Satoshi,” and threatened to “delist” BSV. However, it should be noted that CZ did not explicitly state that BSV was the coin that would be delisted.
His tweet read,
“Craig Wright is not Satoshi.
Anymore of this sh!t, we delist!”
Further, CZ responded by saying “it won’t be the first time,” to a James McDowell tweet suggesting that he would be the subject of a Calvin Ayre lawsuit. The Binance CEO added that legal costs were not of concern to him, stating “we can deal with it.”
Not known for engaging in mindless Twitter-debates, CZ took rare exception, commenting, “this is going too far.” He blamed the emergence of BSV in November 2018 which, in his words, “caused BTC to drop below $6K.” This “caused pain to many in the industry, ” he added.
Just a day ago, Hodlonaut was one among many served a “legal notice” by Ayre and his team for labeling Wright a “fraud.” Since the notice was dished out, the crypto-community came to the pseudonym’s aid via a crowdfunding website, WeAreAllHodlonaut.com, which has seen over $10,000 raised by over 530 users.
Anthony Pompliano, Managing Partner at Morgan Creek Digital, stated that other exchanges should delist BSV as well. He added that this should be implemented on May 1, as “a sign of solidarity behind the only Bitcoin that ever mattered.” He ended with a hashtag that is now making rounds on Twitter,
“Every exchange should delist BSV simultaneously on May 1st in a sign of solidarity behind the only Bitcoin that ever mattered.
This community is the responsibility of the people. Sometimes we must do the hard thing, not because it is easy, but because it is right.
Misha Lederman, Co-founder of IAmDecentralised, replied to Pomp’s tweet, stressing on the significance of a May 1 delisting,
“There is only one Bitcoin
May 1 is known as Labor Day, a protest day for working people worldwide
Proof of Work drives Bitcoin
May 1 should become Bitcoin Restoration Day
#DelistBSV from all legitimate exchanges on May 1”
CryptosBatman backed the overwhelming claim to delist BSV,
“I agree. What Craig Wright did is disgusting. Let’s hope they all delist $BSV once and for all!”
On the other hand, Kurt Wucker Jr, Creator of CryptoTraders Pro, provided a more level-headed response to Pompliano, stating,
“Mob rule hurts everyone, Pomp. CSW is in court over his fraud accusations, & he’s only looking to issue a cease/desist order for defamation by Hodlonaut.
We have a right to not be publicly defamed as a cornerstone of Western law. Subverting justice for political reasons is evil.”
