Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum [ETH] Founder, Calls Craig Wright a Fraud

Vitalik Buterin

The infamous Satoshi Nakamoto is still a mystery. Nobody truly knows the identity of the creator of Bitcoin, but many have claimed to be him. It was once speculated that Elon Musk, Tesla’s (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO, was Mr. Nakamoto but later, Musk put those rumors to rest. Sad, – how cool would that be?

Back in 2016, Craig Wright made claims that he was Satoshi Nakamoto and that did not go over smoothly among the crypto community. During today’s Deconomy conference, Vitalik decided he would live tweet the comments on the “Bitcoin, Controversy over principle” segment. Over the course of the whole presentation, he managed to tweet 62 individual tweets touching on common misconceptions about the history of cryptocurrencies as well as the philosophy behind it.

Here are a few.

After all of his tweets, he stands up and addresses his main long-standing issue. You can view his statement in the video below.

Buterin dropped the mic to end the presentation by saying:

“Given that [Wright] makes so many non-sequiturs at this stage. Why is this fraud allowed to speak at this conference?”

After the altercation between the two at the conference, Wright downplayed the statements Buterin made about him via his own personal Twitter.

It seems that this long-standing feud is a far from over. Buterin is adamant that Wright comes clean that he didn’t create Bitcoin but no such thing has happened just yet. Recently, Wright was hit with a major lawsuit as his former business partner, Dave Kleinman, claims he stole $5 billion worth of Bitcoin from him.

Who won the battle this time? Do you think Ethereum’s glorious leader made a fool of himself or was it necessary?
