Craig Wright understands human psychology more than he does Bitcoin, says Ciphrex's Eric Lombrozo

The true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto has always been a mystery, with a host of speculations failing to nail down a real name behind the pseudonym. Craig Wright is one name that pops up regularly in this debate, largely due to the fact that he has repeatedly claimed to be the ‘real’ Satoshi Nakamoto and the creator of Bitcoin. However, the crypto community at large has dismissed these claims. Ciphrex’s Eric Lombrozo is the most recent critic of Wright’s claims.

The Co-CEO and CTO of Ciphrex Corp., a specialist in the cryptographic transaction space, tweeted that Craig Wright was a “narcissistic liar” and a “fraud”. His full tweet read,

“Craig is a fraud. There, I said it! I can’t believe such a narcissistic liar was able to bamboozle people into actually trying to fire (and pissing off) the most expert, most qualified people to work on cryptocurrency technology in the entire world.”

Lombrozo isn’t the first to attack Wright’s credentials as the ‘real’ Satoshi Nakamoto. Wright’s claims have been widely dismissed as false. In fact, WikiLeaks had previously reported that Craig Wright fabricated false truths out of thin air by deliberately falsifying and forging old documentation. Industry stalwarts such as Samson Mow, Riccardo Spagni and Charles Hoskinson have also been vocal, calling Wright a “fraud” on multiple occasions.

Lombrozo wasn’t done with his rants though. He went on to say,

“He just copies things other people have said and tries to pass it off as his own. He often just speaks gibberish with long words to try to impress people.”

Eric Lombrozo further claimed that Wright “understood human psychology more than Bitcoin,” and used this understanding to con people. He concluded by saying that Wright was yet to make a single contribution to open source software development.

Lombrozo’s tweets come a few weeks after the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto announced his intention to hold people, websites, and companies that make false claims and “harass” him under a false pretext, accountable. At face value, it would seem that Craig Wright is likely to create a serious issue with Lombrozo’s tweets. This point was raised by a Twitter user, @BrianLockhart, who commented,

“Sir this twatterstorm will get you sued in all the courts of lawness and I hope you are prepared for prison.”

Lombrozo responded,

“One can only hope one actually gets sued so we can settle this once and for all.”

Binance launched its blockchain protocol on April 18 and it already has its first project launch on its network. Mithril, a decentralized social media platform will migrate to Binance Chain. The company’s MITH token, that ranks 121st on CoinMarketCap will transfer from ERC20 to Binance’s BEP2 standard.

Binance Chain has been a highly anticipated project in the crypto world since its announcement and with its launch, the community provided ample support to the move. According to reports, Binance is luring companies into migrating to their new native chain and leave Ethereum.

According to Mithril’s blog post, the migration commenced after the mainnet launch of the Binance Chain and informed the MITH holders that the deposit and withdrawals on will be halted for the initial 12-hour migration period, however, trading will continue. The post added:

“Once the initial migration of ERC20-based MITH to BEP2 MITH is complete, Binance users will be able to withdraw MITH to BEP2 wallets, such as the Ledger Nano S, and begin trading on Binance DEX. ERC20 versions of MITH held in private ETH wallets or on other exchanges will not be impacted.”

As Mithril announced about its migration to Binance chain, the price of MITH, Mithril’s native coin saw a surge. The coin also saw a 70% hike,  followed by a market correction. At press time, MITH was valued at $0.0782 with a market cap of $40 million. The 24-hour trading volume of the coin was $108 million as it pumped by 67.10% over the past day. In the past seven days, the coin noted a surge of a massive 81.47%, which started to dip by 0.84% over the past hour.

Following the addition of the project, Binance announced the listing of MITH/USDT trading pair, which will start trading on April 19, 10 AM UTC.
