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”.
