Craig Wright dropped charges against Vitalik Buterin, who called him a fraud
Self-styled bitcoin creator Craig Wright has dropped an honor and dignity lawsuit against Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin. Wright previously filed five such lawsuits against community members who publicly questioned his words..
The claims against Buterin were prompted by his comment on Wright’s speech at the Deconomy conference in Seoul in 2018. Why was this scammer allowed to speak at the conference? Buterin asked. He also compiled a list of links to articles in which other members of the crypto community express doubts about the veracity of Wright’s claims..
Wright’s lawyers sent Buterin a letter urging him to withdraw his comments and publicly apologize, but the Ethereum co-founder ignored the offer. After that, they sent a statement of claim to a British court..
“He really filed a lawsuit,” Buterin said in a conversation with Decrypt. – In my / our case, as far as I remember, they did not continue the case, and the lawsuit expired..
Wright’s representatives put forward a different theory: “We invited Vitalik to take part in the proceedings in the UK to change his defamatory statements. He exercised his right and refused to answer our letter. As he should have known, this meant we could not realistically hold him accountable in the UK. “.
Earlier, Wright also dropped a lawsuit against Blockstream CEO Adam Beck; the lawsuit against the chairman of Bitcoin.com Roger Ver was dismissed by the court; the lawsuit against the pseudonymous member of the crypto community Hodlonaut was transferred to Norwegian jurisdiction. The only active lawsuit to date in the UK is against podcast author Peter McCormack, who does live in the country. Wright recently confirmed that he does not intend to abandon the pursuit of McCormack and will see at least one case through..
