Changpeng Zhao, co-founder and CEO of the major cryptocurrency exchange Binance, expressed public distrust of self-proclaimed Bitcoin (BTC) maker and Bitcoin SV (BSV) founder Craig Wright.
Published in a tweet on February. 24, Zhao explicitly said that Craig Wright is “a fraud.” He also seemed recommended not to invest in Bitcoin SV:
“Investing in fraud never ends well.”
In April 2019, the exchange of Zhao Bitcoin SV canceled after Wright took legal action against a Twitter user who said he is not a Satoshi Nakamoto. The exchange mentioned “evidence of unethical / fraudulent behavior” among the reasons for the deletion.
Craig Wright is an Australian computer scientist who claims to be the person behind the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. Satoshi Nakamoto is the nickname that the Bitcoin maker used when publishing the whitepaper of the project that was published in 2009 and then when collaborating on the implementation of his idea.
Zhao is not the only remarkable figure who has recently expressed a lack of confidence towards Wright. As Cointelegraph recently reported, pop culture star and actor who played Captain Kirk in the original Star Trek series William Shatner also recently said he did not believe Wright as Satoshi. He said:
“Ask yourself why someone claims to be Satoshi and offers zero proof? Hang up or remain silent, right? “
