Morgan Creek Digital co-founder Anthony Pompliano has joined Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao in their condemnation of alternative crypto project Bitcoin SV (BSV). Pompliano has even called upon all exchanges to delist BSV on 1 May 2019 to protest their founders’ claims that BSV is the “real Bitcoin”.
Pompliano did so through a series of Tweets yesterday, asking all crypto users and exchanges to show their solidarity with Bitcoin as the “only Bitcoin that ever mattered”:
Every exchange should delist BSV simultaneously on May 1st in a sign of solidarity behind the only Bitcoin that ever mattered.
This community is the responsibility of the people. Sometimes we must do the hard thing, not because it is easy, but because it is right.#DelistBSV

Zhao had also thrown his support behind the movement, posting on his own Twitter the same day:
Craig Wright is not Satoshi.
Anymore of this sh!t, we delist! https://t.co/hrnt3fDACq

Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre, the figures behind BSV, have repeatedly insisted that their project, which forked from Bitcoin Cash (itself a fork of Bitcoin) follows the original principles of Bitcoin; hence the name “Satoshi’s Vision” in BSV.
Wright himself has caused much controversy in the past by claiming that he was himself Satoshi Nakamoto, a claim that has been thoroughly refuted.
In the eye of the storm is now deleted user Hodlonaut, who had referred to Wright and BSV as a fraud on several occasions, after gaining fame for creating the Lightning Torch Bitcoin transaction relay with Bitcoin’s Lightning Network. Things took a bad turn when Ayre offered a bounty of 70 BSV (currently under USD 5,000) to successful “doxing” (a process to reveal the identity of someone anonymous) of Hodlonaut.
Apparently, cryptocurrency supporters have joined hands to launch a legal fund for Holdonaut, in the event BSV pursues litigation. The fund has already reached almost 75% of its USD 20,000 goal at the time of writing.
