The controversial Bitcoin SV Forks initiator, characterizing himself as Satoshi Nakamoto, Craig Wright, is suing Twitter user Hodlonaut for defamation of reputation, and offered a $5,000 bounty for any information about the identity of the Twitter user. Hodlonaut has persistently and aggressively labeled Wright as “Twitter” fraudster.
Who is Craig Wright?
Craig is known for posing as none other than Satoshi Nakamoto. He claims this title for himself since 2016, but without ever having provided any clear evidence for it. Although he tried one or the other tricks to convince the critics, in retrospect, his attempts were either fake or barely meaningful. Because there are simple ways to prove that he is Satoshi, but Wright has never used it, he is cursed by much of the crypto community as an impostor and fraudster. One of these methods would be to sign a record with Satoshi’s private key, for example.
In November, Bitcoin Satoshi’s vision split under the leadership of Craig Wright of Bitcoin Cash. He recently deleted his Twitter account, which he has often attracted attention with rude slogans.
Who is Hodlonaut?
According to Coingeek, the @Hodlonaut account claims to be located in Norway and the bulk of its tweets were posted from the Oslo region, including a photo posted from a town bar named Kasbah. The account has also posted some pictures in which the individual’s face is covered but recognizing tattoos on both arms are obviously visible.
If anyone acknowledges these tattoos, Wright is giving US$5,000 in Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) for news about @Hodlonaut’s real name.
Hodlonaut was the person after the Bitcoin Lightning Torch, a project which noticed a miniature amount of Bitcoin moved around from person to person on the Lightning Network. This promoted to increase knowledge of the network’s increasing prevalence and got the support of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
Many crypto fans showed solidarity with Hodlonaut and in protest used his profile picture in their social media accounts.
