A dark day for blockchain projects: BSV de-listing from Binance

  • Craig Wright (CSW) claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto, original author of Bitcoin, a claim which he has been making for several years but has not yet come close to genuinely validating this claim. He has made several attempts to “pull the wool” over peoples eyes by signing a message with the wrong private key though, which was quickly debunked.
  • He’s been caught a number of times lying / doctoring documents:
  • Craig has been making claims he will start taking people to court over defamation where they state he is not Satoshi Nakamoto, at which time in court he will no doubt have to prove he is Satoshi.
  • Twitter user @hodlonaut (Famous for starting the Lightning Network LNTorch) decided to poke the bear and vehemently claimed that CSW was not Satoshi Nakamoto.
  • Craig sent a legal notice to @hodlonaut about his prior tweets. Many users now have the hodlonaut astronaut image as their display picture on Twitter, as hodlonaut has closed their Twitter account down.
  • Craig has also sent a legal letter to Bitcoin commentator Peter McCormack:
  • Peter McCormack has responded and all hell has broken loose:
  • CZ from Binance chimed in, virtue-signalling as always despite being one of those known fraudsters in a number of ways (We’re still missing millions from the Binance Charity Fund for example):
  • Then in his usual hypocritical style, said one thing but did another:

But this is not how things are playing out

I don’t want to see CZ de-list BSV over the actions of one person

So I ask you this

Should a decentralized and permissionless project be punished for the actions of one user?

Do we really want this?
