Community support continues to mount for Hodlonaut and Peter McCormack after notable luminaries from the cryptospace took a stance against Craig Wright, the allegedly self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, and Calvin Ayre. Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao aka CZ, also extended his support to Peter McCormack, after the latter responded to the notices issued by Wright and Ayre’s lawyers.

Calling Wright a fraud, CZ tweeted,

“The real Satoshi can digitally sign any message to prove it. This is as simple as breathing for him/her. And we have the pub key. Until then, everyone is Satoshi, except Craig Wright!”

According to the CEO, supporters of BSV’s technology should oppose Craig Wright as he is “poisoning” the community. He also stated that Wright’s supporters should “learn” how cryptocurrency and private key work.

While many on the platform applauded CZ for his stance, a few users criticized him. He had previously declared that he did not “choose sides” with respect to technology and instead, let the market do that. CZ’s latest tweets and his threat to delist BSV appeared to contradict his previous statement. Expressing a similar sentiment, John Carvalho, Bitrefill’s CCO, commented,

“Why do you list is fraud coin then?”

CZ’s reaction came after Peter McCormack tweeted his reply to the letter issued by the BSV proponents. McCormack declined to apologize for his remarks, claiming that he had 15 lawyers who were willing to represent him. He maintained that he solely intended to protect investors from investing in BSV tokens, which, in his opinion, was “not Satoshi’s Vision”.

Support also poured in from cryptocurrency maximalist and Morgan Creek’s Anthony Pompliano, who called him McCormack a “legend”.

Craig Wright, the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, has been in the limelight for the past few days. Apart from the news surrounding a lawsuit over a defamation case, Wright also made headlines due to the news pertaining to the Dave Kleiman case.

Earlier this week, a Reddit user stated in a post that Wright “purposely” submitted a fake email as evidence to the court for the Kleiman -Wright lawsuit. The lawsuit alleges that Wright had stolen $1 million Bitcoin from Dave Kleiman after his death, and Wright was being sued for billions of dollars.

The Redditor had stated,

“Craig Wright’s fraud continues. Yesterday, he submitted into evidence an email he says was from Dave Kleiman to Uyen Nguyen asking her to be a director of his ‘bitcoin company’ in late 2012. It is provably fake. Craig didn’t realize that the email’s PGP signature includes a signing timestamp along with the ID of the key used as metadata.”

Apart from this, it was also pointed out that the spelling “Kleiman” was misspelled in the letter, as the from address spelled it “Klieman”. Now, according to a new court document, Wright has withdrawn this evidence by stating that he cannot verify the date of the email exchange.

The court letter said,

“Dr. Craig Wright respectfully notifies the Court that he withdraws Exhibit A to his Motion for Judgement on the Pleadings for Lack of Subject-Matter Jurisdiction […] Wright is not withdrawing the motion and maintains that this Court lacks subject-matter jurisdiction over this action”
