@haakon I've not been on Twitter recently, WTF happened to Hodlonaut? I mean it's not as if no one ever said on Twitter that CSW was not Satoshi

@Sosthene CSW has started sending out threats of legal actions to people who have pointed out that he is a fraud. He's offering a financial reward to people who doxx @Hodlonaut, who reacted by deleting his Twitter account.


@haakon @Hodlonaut yes, I read that, but I mean why @Hodlonaut ? I can think of plenty of other higher profile bitcoiners on Twitter that also thrashed a lot CSW, it doesn't feel that he has been especially aggressive compared to many of them. Maybe because it seemed to be an easier prey to them?

@Sosthene Who knows, but he has to start somewhere, I suppose. Later on, the threat letter has been sent to Peter McCormack of the "What Bitcoin Did" podcast as well, and maybe others as well by now.

@haakon @Hodlonaut this whole stuff looks very fishy, I think they are retarded but even then they can't reasonably expect to win this I think, and even if they could win before a court it would destroy what little credibility it has left. I think Peter McCormack is right to double down and tease him to bring the case to court, because he probably won't.

@Sosthene I agree he probably won't take it to court. But his fan base loves it when CSW blusters with legal threats and applies for patents. It's a cult of personality, and these things always look insane from the outside – because they are.

@haakon I guess this fetichism for law and patents tell a lot about him and his followers, this alone should proove that he can't possibly be Satoshi.
I was all for ignoring him until now, but I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better for everyone if he could get utterly destroyed, either by losing his case before a court or any other mean necessary. I saw that Binance is going to delist BSV, that would be a good start.
The joke has been on for too long, it's only funny until someone gets hurt.
