Binance CEO Threatens to Delist BSV for Actions Against Hodlonaut
Today, the Binance CEO threatened to delist Bitcoin SV after the self-proclaimed Satoshi, Craig Wright, published threats of legal action against Hodlonaut
Dr Craig Wright has been recently ‘stalked’ by a Twitter user named Hodlonaut who has been publicly calling Wright a fraudster and a fake Satoshi.
First, the head of the Bitcoin SV network put a bounty on his head, promising $5,000 to anyone who can reveal this person’s real name. Later on, Craig got his lawyers to prepare a formal letter.
The document contains threats of a legal action against him unless
Hodlonaut makes a public apology and confirms that Craig Wright is the genuine
Satoshi Nakamoto, the mysterious Bitcoin creator.
Binance’s CZ steps in
Fragments of the letter prepared for Hodlonaut with threats of suing him were published in Bitcoin Magazine. Seeming to be weary of Craig’s claims to be Satoshi and now even promising to sue people who reject his claims, the head of Binance, CZ, has threatened to delist Bitcoin SV if Craig continues his campaign against Hodlonaut.
CoinGeek announces bounty set
forth by Wright
On Thursday, CoinGeek, the crypto-related blog of Calvin Ayre, Craig Wright’s associate, wrote that the lawyers’ team hired by Wright had prepared a letter addressed to Hodlonaut. The letter reportedly says that they can prove a deliberate campaign being targeted at Wright in order to harass and libel him.
The bounty totals $5,000 in BSV and it is offered to anyone who can help
identify the Twitter user going by the name Hodlonaut using the pictures he had
published on the social media platform.
The letter gets published in
As mentioned above, Bitcoin Magazine managed to obtain the letter and in its article it quoted a few passages. Craig Wright’s lawyers say that Hodlonaut has posted a series of tweets, constantly calling Wright “fraudster” and “scammer”, adding to that a hashtag #CraigWrightIsAFraud.
The Binance community’s
After CZ posted his tweet, threatening to delist BSV, the community responded very enthusiastically. People kept encouraging CZ to ‘do it’ with GIFs, assuring that their respect to Binance and its CEO has soared after this decision.
CZ responded that he prefers to stay away from rumours, debates, etc, however, in this case, he wrote, things have gone too far.
One Bitcoin SV supporter joined the discussion as well, though. He started posting rebukes regarding CZ and Binance, calling the exchange and its recent activities a Ponzi Scheme. He also mentioned that the BSV network does not need the services of this exchange.
