A majority of the crypto community came together to create a web portal and crowdfunding campaign in a bid to cover Hodlonaut’s legal costs. The website was created following a massive outcry against the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, Craig S Wright, who threatened the individual behind the Twitter account ‘Hodlonaut’ in a series of letters, demanding an apology for labeling him “fraud”.

The crowdfunding website, “#WeAreAllHodlonaut,” has successfully raised $10651.17, contributed by 539 users, at press time. The website read,



“Everyone’s favorite astronautical feline, Hodlonaut, is facing legal action from Craig Wright. The Lightning Torch founder was DMed a letter from Wright’s legal team following a series of tweets in which Hodlonaut claimed, among other things, that Craig Wright was not Satoshi Nakamoto.”

The author of the website revealed that it was created to ensure Hodlonaut continues to vocalize his honest opinion. The crowdfunding campaign would substantially aid in the impending legal battle against Craig Wright. Hodlonaut, who has since deleted his tweet, has found significant support pouring into his way. The #LNTrustChain initiator is already seeking legal counsel and has paid a retainer fee, the website cited.

The fundraising campaign follows Wright and his associates promising a reward to anyone who revealed Hodlonaut’s true identity. Many of Hodlonaut’s supporters changed their profile pictures and usernames, claiming that they were all Hodlonaut, fuelling the #JeSuisHodlonaut campaign. The website also added that any funds raised over the fundraising target will be donated to Bitcoin Venezuela.

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”
