Some major proponents of Bitcoin are receiving the heat emanating from a recent controversy that involves the white paper used to develop the digital asset. According to recent details taken off microblogging platform, Twitter, a Bitcoin proponent, was sent several proverbial threats by some faction of the Bitcoin SV community.
These latest threats are coming on the back of the latest claim by Craig Wright over the publishing of the Bitcoin white paper. Wright, who previously claimed that he was the leading digital asset developer, sued three different entities to court for publishing the white paper without his consent.
Suspects got hold of his personal information
In a recent tweet that was taken off CobraBitcoin, a Bitcoin proponent, he has received various death threats from different handles suspected to be members of the Bitcoin SV community. In his statement on Twitter, the Bitcoin proponent said that the person spelled out most of his details, which means that they have gotten their hands on some information related to who he is.
Notably, CobraBitcoin is an anonymous Bitcoin proponent with his username on the platform a pseudonym, so it baffles how the community got their hands on his details. “There was one person that got his hands on a number that was associated with my business and told me that I was going to get shot at if they eventually get their hands on details that would bring them to me,” CobraBitcoin said.
Giving their two cents on the issue, analysts have noted that this behavior is not typical with the crypto industry, and things like this need to stop. “This is not a gang war or something mafia-related. People should know when to stop if they are not sick in the head”, CobraBitcoin added.
Wright continues to claim ownership of the white paper
Craig Wright had his legal representatives draw up a letter sent around the crypto industry to several platforms that teach people about Bitcoin and blockchain technology. After sending the copyright letter to the firms, his lawyers claimed that the paper was Wright’s property and no one had the right to post it anywhere without an approval form wright.
Even though they have received the papers, the firms in question, Bitcoin.com, Bitcoincore.org, and the last one, Bitcoin.org, have not released a reprisal. According to the legal team, the letters were sent to the platforms to not be charged to court. The sending of the papers was said to be a part of the procedure that was in line with the procedure of the law in England.
The main reason why CobraBitcoin is being targeted is that he was one of the leading voices that spoke up to Wright’s claims of being the owner of the nine paged paper. Even though the papers were released on a source code that belonged to MIT at the time, Wright is still going ahead to say he created it and he wants it taken down from the sites that it has been published on.
