Craig Wright Hits Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin With A Lawsuit
You probably already know what’s going on with Craig Wright.
The whole crypto space seems to be having enough of his speculation and major exchanges have begun delisting his token BSV.
Wright sues Buterin and McCormack
Wright’s latest moves involve sending legal notices to Ethereum’s founder Vitalik Buterin and podcaster Peter McCormack, according to the online magazine Investinblockchain.
The man threatened them with lawsuits for libel and defamation. Wright reportedly also spoke to Bloomberg about his thoughts.
This comes after his decision to place a bounty of $5,000 on Hodlonaut, a Twitter user who also called him out for lying and more than that he called Wright “mentally ill.”
The online magazine mentioned above reported that Buterin said that Wright has right to speak his mind, but it’s also important to understand that others too have the “right to laugh at his stupidity.”
The Ethereum co-founder has not responded to the letter or Bloomberg’s request for a comment.
McCormack, on the other hand, has said that he has several lawyers that would help him on a pro bono basis.
Craig Wright absolutely should have a voice. But so do all of us laughing at his stupidity.

“I am mainly seeking people who have a perceived authority within the cryptocurrency industry so Vitalik & Peter McCormack. They have been sent the opening letter outlining the case already. This will give me the chance to prove my credentials in front of a judge rather than being judged by Twitter,” Wright said.
John McAfee says he’ll expose Satoshi to end all speculation

This comes after Binance CEO was saying a few days ago, that if Wright doesn’t stop, he’ll delist the BSV coin.
