Outspoken crypto antagonist, Craig Wright, has been at it again lambasting other people and projects. Meanwhile, it has come to light that he has doctored documents in the past.
Craig Wright Exposed For Tax Fraud
A crypto Twitter user going by the handle ‘SeekingSatoshi’ has been delving into the past of computer scientist Craig Wright following his repeated claims to be bitcoin father Satoshi Nakamoto. Wright has made a name for himself as one of the most controversial figures in the industry by constantly attacking all rivals of his own recently spawned crypto coin, Bitcoin SV.
According to the records, Wright was caught and fined by the Australian Tax Office in 2014 for backdating documents.
“Has Craig Wright ever been proven guilty for the backdating or forging documents in the past?
Yes! In 2014 he was caught, admitted to, and fined by the Australian Taxation Office for the offence of backdating business records. Sorry Craig, no wriggle room this time, its a fact.”

It is no surprise that the opinionated and vocal crypto adversary has racked up a long list of nemeses in the emerging industry. His diatribe brings the entire crypto ecosystem into bad light and the constant infighting between rival factions does nothing for the masses and wider audiences that are considering entering the scene.
Ethereum and Binance Attacked
In a recent blog post Wright took up arms against the rest of the industry who have also labeled him as a fraud. Roger Ver was pretty high up on Craig’s hit list as he lashed out at Ver’s involvement in the early Silk Road underground marketplace.
Unsurprisingly there is no love lost between Wright and Binance boss Changpeng Zhao who delisted BSV four months ago following repeated Satoshi claims that could not be backed up with hard evidence.
“CZ of Binance and individuals associated with him run one of the biggest money-laundering operations in the public world, and seek to allow individuals to easily launder money using cryptocurrency.”
Then it was Vitalik Buterin’s turn to be on the receiving end of Wrights wrath as he labeled Ethereum and the ICO boom a huge Ponzi scheme.
“Vitalik Buterin has been behind the creation of the biggest Ponzi market and scheme of the decade — with ICOs that have extracted billions of dollars from unwary individuals.”
It appears that Craig Wright is riding solo, racking up the rivals which all appear to have a common argument. It also appears that he is not the only one seeking Satoshi crypto fame. According to a letter penned to a Florida federal courthouse last week, Debo Jurgen Etienne Guido has also made his claim to be the pseudonymous Satoshi. The list of claimants to the crypto crown continues to grow.
