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”:

Zhao had also thrown his support behind the movement, posting on his own Twitter the same day:

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.
