NChain chief scientist and Bitcoin SV (BSV) proponent Craig Wright has filed a libel claim in the United Kingdom against cryptocurrency podcaster Peter McCormack. According to BSV-focused crypto news outlet CoinGeek, the claim aims to “prevent McCormack from making further fraudulent claims that Wright is not the individual behind the Satoshi Nakamoto pseudonym.”
Furthermore, Wright also seeks £100,000 (over $130,000) in damages, plus legal costs and court fees. The report notes:
“Wright maintains that BSV is the real target due to its capacity for massive on-chain scaling, which represents an existential threat to the future of other cryptocurrencies, the flawed design of which prevents them from scaling to meet the needs of a truly global financial platform.”
As Cointelegraph recently reported, major cryptocurrency exchange Binance delisted BSV over a similar instance in which Wright took action against the anonymous Twitter user who initiated the Lightning Torch.
