Craig Wright, Founder of nChain and vocal proponent of Bitcoin SV, disappeared from Twitter after the recent episode involving alleged harassment, lawsuits and copyright infringement.

The self-proclaimed creator of Bitcoin was attacked by trolls on Twitter, after he announced his intention to sue anybody making false claims or harassing or copying his tweets.

Following the Twitter storm, many troll/spoof accounts were created. One such notable account was Fake-toshi Bot, an account that reproduced Wright’s tweets. Wright had previously responded to such bot accounts with the threat of legal action.

A Twitter user, @big_blockers, also came forward to inform the Twitterverse that Jihan Wu, the founder of Bitmain, was now following the parody account as well. Roger Ver and Jihan Wu previously had a strong disagreement with Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre during the hard fork of Bitcoin Cash.

However, soon, the issue became one of ‘disappearance,’ as Wright’s Twitter account was found offline. Twitterati soon joined in to comment on Wright’s disappearance, with @WhalePanda tweeting,

“Fraud/scammer puts a lot of time and effort into getting 70k followers on Twitter. Gets annoyed with bots. Tries to use protected tweets but the bots follow him so has no effect. Mr Fraud is desperate and doesn’t understand how this tech works. Then he finds the ultimate solution”

@NeerajKA, a popular cryptocurrency enthusiast, tweeted,



@hodolnaut tweeted,

“As a tribute to Craig Wright being a fraud, I’m going to make next week ‘Craig Wright is a fraud week’, and tag all my tweets with #CraigWrightIsAFraud
Feel free to join the celebration. 🙏”

Craig Wright’s Twitter account, at the time of writing, was suspended, suggesting that it could either have been reported by multiple users, or Wright must have deleted his account.

The mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology has come a long way, with many financial and non-financial institutions now entering the mix. Technology giant, Samsung, is not new to the field, as the South Korean organization previously blew up the cryptosphere by meshing crypto with the launch of the company’s latest flagship device, the Galaxy S10.

Latest reports now suggest that Samsung is getting more serious about virtual assets, as the company might be on its way to create its own Ethereum [ETH]-based blockchain network, with the prospect of launching its own cryptocurrency token in the near future. An anonymous official from the organization stated,



“Currently, we are thinking of private blockchain, though it is not yet confirmed. It could also be public blockchain in the future, but I think it will be hybrid—that is, a combination of public and private blockchains.”

Sources from within the company added that blockchain technology is being developed by the wireless technology division of Samsung. Despite the fact that it has not been confirmed as to what devices will provide support for the blockchain, a company official revealed that “some models are being tested for it.”

Samsung’s tryst with Ethereum has been ongoing for quite some time now, with previous developments suggesting that Ethereum could be vulnerable on the S10 device. This was evidenced by a video put out by a user ‘darkshark’ on Imgur, in which it was shown how easy it was to crack the phone. Darkshark stated,

“This brings up a lot of ethics questions and concerns. There’s nothing stopping me from stealing your fingerprints without you ever knowing, then printing gloves with your fingerprints built into them and going and committing a crime.”
