Ethereum’s [ETH] Vitalik Buterin refuses to play Craig Wright’s game |
The #WeAreAllHodlonaut movement took the cryptocurrency space by storm after Craig Wright, the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, threatened to sue Hodlonaut, a Twitter user. The user reportedly accused Wright of “fraudulently attempting to prove he is Satoshi.” Hodlonaut was also allegedly responsible for the #CraigWrightIsAFraud hashtag on Twitter.
Wright demanded that Hodlonaut apologize on Twitter, asking him to “acknowledge the falsity of the allegations made against Wright.” This apology, reportedly, had to be met within seven days of receiving the letter, following which, he would sue him on the “grounds of defamation.” Further, an article by Coingeek revealed that Wright would give $5000 in Bitcoin SV to anyone who provided information about the individuals pictured in one of Hodlonaut tweets.
This instead, led to a massive uproar in the cryptocurrency community, with several influencers and well-known developers showing their support by adding ‘Hodlonaut’ to their Twitter handles. More so, several members in the community also voiced their opinion on Wright, declaring that “Wright is not Satoshi.”
Michel Rauchs, a researcher at The Cambridge Centre of Alternative Finance, also joined in, stating that this was “pathetic even for Craig Wright standards,” adding that it was time to put an end to Wright’s claims of being a “Bitcoin inventor.” He tweeted,
“If anything, Craig Wright‘s actions (failing to understand basic Bitcoin concepts, attempts to deceive followers by forging messages, history of debunked lies, etc.) have repeatedly proven that he most definitely is *not* Satoshi Nakamoto […] At this point, I really don‘t understand how smart people can still fall for this.”
This was followed by Rauchs asking Vitalik Buterin, Creator of Ethereum, whether he was going to sue Ayre for defamation as well, considering that he had called Buterin a fraud a few days ago. He said,
“Appendix: Funnily enough, Calvin Ayre called Vitalik a fraud himself just two days ago. @VitalikButerin are you going to sue Calvin now as well for defamation?”
Vitalik is in essence an ICO scam lord and a Craig Troll fraudster. He is scared because he knows Craig invented Bitcoin and will now wipe out Eth with #BSV…if this is not true why does he froth on about Craig all the time? //t.co/dbvkvAdNop

To this, Vitalik Buterin replied,
Nah, I’m too (libertarian | lazy) to do that at the moment.
