The tweet is presumably a reaction to Wright's recent action against Hodlnaut, the Twitter user behind the Lightning Torch initiative. In fact, calling Craig Wright a fraud has become something of a meme in the crypto community that earned him the title "Faketoshi". Legally, it would be up to him to prove beyond any doubt that he is Satoshi Nakamoto in order to have the legal capacity to consider himself a victim of defamation.

Particularly concerning for some is the fact that the steps taken by both Wright and Ayre could be unsafe to Hodlonaut's physical safety. This has affect the Bitcoin SV price and the Bitcoin SV community.

The page shows links and screenshots in which Craig Wright claimed to be a lawyer although Satoshi mentioned that he was not, demonstrating how CSW used internet sources forge David Kleiman's signature, showing how CSW shared poorly programmed code, edited old posts to look related to BTC, faked PGP keys, plagiarized several documents, took ownership of certain wallets that belong to MtGox users, and even did not understand Bitcoin's code, among many other proofs.

Sometimes we must do the hard thing, not because it is easy, but because it is right.

At the heart of the debate is CSW's claim to be Satoshi Nakomoto - the unknown Bitcoin creator. The statement further claims that he wrote Bitcoin's white paper, sent the first Bitcoin transaction, and played an integral role in the network's development.

In December past year, Bitcoin SV faced criticism after a researcher reportedly showed how any user could spend the same coins twice on its network in a "0-conf transaction".

Bitcoin Cash stands at the 5th position in the top cryptocurrency list according to market cap and is now trading around $108.26 with a market capitalization of around $1.9 billion according to CoinMarketCap data. The trading volume over a 24 hour period is $110,312,981 and the market capitalization is $1,240,700,462.

According to Gemini, they have obtained the approval to list Bitcoin Cash on their exchange from the New York State Department of Financial Services. Do you think it will happen? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
