Self-acclaimed Satoshi – Craig Wright – has recently faced the ire of Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao after Wright served legal notice to Twitter user Hodlonaut.

Craig Wright, the self-acclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, has recently been in news and drawn upon himself the ire of the crypto community. Wright and his attorneys recently served legal papers to Twitter user Hodlonaut. While not stopping there, Wright also went further to put a bounty of $5000 in Bitcoin Cash SV on the user.

Wright turned aggressive after Hodlnaut called him a scammer and allegedly made “defamatory” statements against him. While Wright has tried to assert several times that he’s the real Satoshi Nakamoto, the Bitcoin founder, his claims haven’t gone well with the Bitcoin community.

Wright thus demanded an apology from Hodlonaut for his accusations. But it seems like he’s getting little support from Twitter users in this matter.

Well, if you remember, Craig Wright had done all sorts of notoriety during the Bitcoin Cash hard fork last year. But this time it looks like Wright has some bigger players from the crypto industry to deal with. Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao, has issued a fresh warning to Wright and even threatened to delist Bitcoin Cash SV.

Indirectly blaming Wright for his witch hunt tactics, Zhao seems to single-out him in the crypto industry.

Crypto Community Backs Zhao

After Zhao’s latest statement, many from the crypto community came out in his support. It looks like the crypto community is fed up with Wright’s tantrums and his repetitive attempts to create unnecessary FUD.

Tron founder Justin Sun, also tweeted in support of CZ while putting the same hashtag.

Calvin Ayre Supports Craig Wright

Despite recent backlash from the crypto community, Wright gets some support from CoinGeek.com founder Calvin Ayre. He has recently lashed at CZ calling his decision to delist Bitcoin SV as “stupid”.

Furthermore, Ayre also took potshots at Hodlonaut for their continuous trolling Wright and saying that they should be ashamed of it.

But it looks like, in general, the crypto community doesn’t stand in support of Wright and Ayre. A twitter user Skive_BTC wrote:

“#CraigWrightIsAFraud came about via community consensus.
Calvin Ayers threats against #Hodlonaut, on the other hand, use his own personal website and by offering a financial reward is considered targeted harassment.”

Well, it remains to be seen how things move from here and whether CZ manages to gather more support in favor of him.
