This time CoinGeek writes that the legal claim Craig Wright initiated against the crypto podcast host in April has now been taken to the UK High Court of Justice.

The podcaster started publicly encouraging Craig Wright to take legal action against him and even provided his postal address for sending legal documentation. He also invited his social media audience to share his posts with accusations against Wright.

However, when the attorneys of the self-assumed Satoshi did send him a formal letter of libel, he rejected all the accusations mentioned in it. Although, he did not recommend anyone to do the same, as per CoinGeek.

Fake Satoshi, fake Bitcoin version

In addition to rejecting Wright’s claims of being the author of BTC’s white paper, McCormack also publicly stated that apart from being fake Satoshi Nakamoto, Craig Wright is also promoting a fake version of Bitcoin – Bitcoin SV.

A solution to the problem McCormack suggested is that if Wright managed to sign a message from the BTC Genesis block, it would convince everyone that he is the true Satoshi.
