An all out War Against Craig Wright the Self-acclaimed Satoshi  started by Binance CEO, CZ.

Published

on

Binance announced it will delist Bitcoin Satoshi Vision tickered BSV following the numerous lawsuit filed against several persons in the cryptocurrency space notably Peter McCormack who was the recent victim of Dr. Craig’s alleged Cyber Bullying. Over the years Dr. Craig Wright has been claiming to be the creator of the first cryptocurrency Bitcoin which was built and released to the public as an open source project in 2009 following the global financial turmoil the world which saw untold impact on businesses and personal lives.

Craig’s claim to be Satoshi Nakamoto has been refuted by a lot of cryptocurrency and Blockchain enthusiast not over the years when various persons came up claiming to be the pseudonymous creator Satoshi Nakamoto. The desire to unearth the mystery man behind this border-less cryptographically protected currency has touched mainstream media and other enthusiastic fellows. This search has brought about many names popping up but all not proving true the cryptocurrency community requirements of the Identity of the mystery man. This requirement has been the same which has been requested from the notorious bitcoin creator claimant. To sign a transaction with the keys to the wallet popularly known to be Satoshi’s. This request Dr. Craig Wright has continually been refused to be heed to.
However, Dr. Wright agrees saying that he has the private PGP key, but that using it would not prove anything. The cryptographic proof he offers is of a different kind. The cryptocurrency community has clearly ultimately disregarded his claim and this is the reason for him taking legal actions on notable people in the space of which lastly on Peter McCormack which he responded to requesting public acknowledgement of Dr. Wright to the fact that he is not Satoshi and to apologize to the global community else face retaliating legal redress. This last act of legal cyber bullying has infuriated several key industry players which resulted to the decision by CZ the CEO of world top exchange Binance to delist the Dr. Craig’s Forked Coin the Bitcoin Satoshi Vision even after issuing a warning prior to the delist announcement.

Craig Wright is not Satoshi. Anymore of this sh!t, we delist!

Following this decision, several industry players in the Exchange and Wallet business also expressed their dissatisfaction on the activities of Dr. Wright by also deciding to toe the path of CZ in withdrawing support for the Bitcoin fork. Evidence from the Poll ran by the Kraken Exchange saw a 76% level of respondents agreeing to delisting of BSV saying it is Toxic.
This can be said to be an affirmation to the cryptocurrency opinion and support of the industry players to kick to the recesses of the cryptocurrency community Dr. Craig Wright. Expressing his anger on the situation of things, industry titans poured their opinions not excluding CZ who said

To be clear, I don’t choose sides on technology. We let market do that. I am against fraud, such as lying to be someone. As such, it is my strong opinion that: Craig Wright is fraud.

Commenting on the issue, Crypto Die Hard Loyalist John McAfee said

I hate to sway a poll but what idiot would believe that Craig Wright is Satoshi and therefore BSV is not a scam? If thete ever was a scam it is BSV!

He continued

Enough is enough! There at least a dozen crypto adherents who know the true identity of Satoshi. I can assure you, 100%, it is NOT Craig Wright. This absurd claim of Craig’s is incomprehensible. Mr wright: Have you no shame? Seriously sir! Have you no shame?

In a very special message posted on Twitter from YouTube, the CEO of Bitcoin.com Roger Ver called Dr Craig a liar and fraud and asked that he be sued again.

With industry players in the exchange and wallet business such as Kraken, Binance, Shapeshift etc already ending support for Bitcoin Satoshi Vision, one is left to wonder what will happen to the vision of the acclaimed Satoshi.

Crypto Payments Comes to eBay

Crypto-Payments-Comes-to-eBay

As cryptocurrencies continue its rally, another titan of the global e-commerce industry might be making move to add virtual currencies as it’s rumoured that crypto payments come to eBay.

The Californian registered tech giant which has its competition as Amazon has up to 179 million confirmed users on its platform. With up to that number given the crypto payment option, this will no doubt boost widestream acceptance for other industries and firms who have chosen to play the waiting game to see how other firms who choose to accept this payment option comes along.

The rumour of the possible addition of crypto payments option on eBay comes from leaked ad information of Consensus an annual conference of international repute where eBay is also a major sponsor.

While this is breezing through and might lead to favorable market sentiments, it must also be remembered that eBay is actually not the first mainstream company to jump into the fray as companies who accept cryptocurrencies with bitcoin being the currency of choice for major platforms who have at one point in time decide to support crypto payments options.

Firms like Microsoft, Twitch, and whole other long list have disavowed their support for crypto payments citing extreme volatility and low confirmation as reasons for pulling the plug on their earlier decision of setting up and accepting cryptocurrencies.

While this definitely comes as a welcome development for crypto enthusiasts the world over, the discretion to see this rumour become reality still lies with eBay. It should be remembered back in 2017, during an interview with a top executive of the e-commerce giant that he stated that eBay is seriously considering the option of crypto payments on its platform but in the end, never did.

Will eBay see this through this time around? It will be nice to have it do and possibly encourage other firms to follow suit.

Binance Gets Hacked of 7000 BTC

Binance Gets hacked

Looks like CZ Would Have to Take Solace via the Liverpool Invite Afterall

Binance has been hacked after several unsuccessful attempts by hackers for a period of one year now as issued in its press release. With this hack, perpetrators successfully carted away with 7000 BTC in a single transaction. The damage could be more in the coming days CZ opines, as the team is taking time to investigate how deep this damage could be.

Binance announced itself to the world and without any doubt becoming the exchange trading platform of choice for most traders in the space. And swiftly, displacing veterans in the space such as Bittrex, Poloniex etc, for top positions, little doubt was left in the minds of many as to the height Binance could attain within the space as the cryptocurrency adoption continues to gain traction globally.

While Binance was making a good name for itself with the mantra “Exchange the world”, hackers were also making plans to ink their activities in the books of history as one of the successful clandestine groups who have successfully carried out a heist on the most popular exchange. February 2018, saw hackers attempt to breach the exchange security systems which was botched as they unsuccessfully got hacked themselves. It was in the news how the hackers themselves got hacked. After successfully targeting and breaching several user accounts via API (Application Programming Interface), the hackers pumped a VIA/BTC  pair by over 10,000% and then immediately sought to cash out by withdrawal. This attempt was botched as the risk management mechanism built in triggered an alarm that automatically froze withdrawal leaving the hackers funds trapped in the exchange.

With controversial entities like McAfee tweeting that Binance exchange has been hacked, Binance quickly attacked him on Twitter that he’s trying to create FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubts).

Responding after some months, McAfee apologized to CZ and the entire Binance Team that he obviously was wrong and CZ offering a cup of coffee when they meet someday, could there be no love lost between the duo?

One thing was clear, CZ shared with his fans how this event obviously was a blessing in disguise and had made his fanbase grow very quickly. This marked a new era for both the Binance Team and their maverick CEO. CZ was always in the news whether for bagging new partnerships, fostering industry growth or even for recent CZ vs BSV Craig Wright Binance delisting.

From yesterday’s hack, and as described by Binance in their press release, it sure looks like the hackers decided to stage a “hackathon” on Binance. The recent hack operation was well coordinated. Took time and patience to execute. Even Binance agreed the modus operandi of these hackers followed the “once beaten, twice shy” route. They were not going to be hasty allowing their funds get trapped again. Alas! They got through with the similar pattern in the past but this time more intelligently.

Apparently CZ had tweeted that #SAFU (Secured Asset Funds for Users) funds will be used to ensure everything is kept under control while the team investigate and try to do implement damage control. Industry Leader and TRON CEO, Justin Sun has offered open support for Binance offering to transferring 7000 BTC to the Binance wallet and buying BNB and USDT to help stabilize the situation.

One particularly interesting part of the AMA session held few hours after the unfortunate hack incident is that CZ and his teams are putting all options on the table in ensuring this issue is salvaged. One of such is a reorganization of the bitcoin blockchain network. This is already sparking heavy debate across social media. This option even though earlier considered has been dropped as outlined in his tweet.

Let’s not be quick to forget at that nicely designed parcel CZ unveiled on Twitter sent to him by Liverpool FC, looks like this is actually a great time for CZ to honour that Liverpool invite he brandished via his Twitter account considering how exciting the club is right now after the 4 – 0 thumping of Barcelona at Anfield last night in the UEFA Champions League Semi Finals clash.

Bitcoin Trading at $6000, Ether at $173 at Bitfinex.

An Opportunity for Arbitrage Hunters?

Bitcoin trading at $6000 on Bitfinex presents arbitrage opportunities for traders at a market volume of $38.9 million in Bitfinex. This is $300 over the reported price in Coinmarketcap as at Press time presenting arbitrage opportunities to traders.

Ether the second top cryptocurrency by market capitalization is trading at $173 as against the reported aggregate in CMC of $164. This is an interesting opportunity for arbitrage seekers. Sure appearing like a great opportunity considering some of the major top cryptocurrencies are experiencing some significant value increase in the exchange. This is evidenced with the variance as seen with other exchanges or the CMC reported aggregated data.

Bitfinex which was founded in 2012 and has its headquarters in Hong Kong is currently listed as the 44th top cryptocurrency exchange. This is according to Coinmarketcap data as at press time. It was one of the top and biggest exchanges, prior to the launch of some of the exchanges ahead of it.  However, it has been beset by a wide variety of allegations many of which it has up until now not been able to provide acceptable and substantial evidence to refute.

Arbitrage is a unique opportunity for traders to enjoy unique profits by trading the price differences between two different exchanges. According to Coinmarketcap and Bitfinex price data on Bitcoin and Ethereum, traders can be able to enjoy up to $300 and $10 profits respectively  with Bitcoin trading at $6000 on Bitfinex presenting arbitrage opportunities.

Even more, Bitfinex has recently announced the launch of their IEO in their attempt to raise $1 billion to continue financing its operation. This is expected to happen in the midst of its varied scandalous allegations such as wash trading, Tether’s full value not hedged against the Dollar, inability to provide clarity of Tether’s operative transparency, Bitcoin manipulation.

Bitfinex price data was removed from the data feed of Coinmarketcap yesterday with the sign of an asterisk * which the website says means

“Some prices are manually excluded from the average, denoted by an asterisk (*) on the markets tab. This action suggests price is not indicative of a “free market price”

Hence, its removal by CMC. This is coming after Coinmarketcap set new rules towards ensuring exchange transparency

Arbitrage provides a great opportunity for traders to make significant gains and profits. And as such, users are most likely to troop into the exchange. Be that as it may, many may not be considering the looming scandals and the rationality of the $1 billion funds to be raise via IEO.

Consequently, will anyone because of profit attempt getting into Bitfinex to enjoy Bitcoin trading at $6000 on Bitfinex presenting arbitrage opportunities? Let’s see how the arbitrage hunters react to this.
