The self-declared Bitcoin creator Craig Wright reaches our crypto news again today after naming the Bitcoin advocate Andreas Antonopoulos a ‘’shitcoin expert’’ on Twitter.
Wright says that Andreas has very little knowledge on Bitcoin and that the only thing he does knows how to properly spell the name of the number one cryptocurrency. He believes that Antonopoulos is an anarchist because of the philosophy he spreads on cryptocurrency:
‘’These guys have an idea of what they want as a system. It is anti bank, anti government and based on scams, ponzis and get rich yesterday schemes. The best they understand are bucket shops and cons. Luckily. Bitcoin is designed so all these fools spin their wheels on dead ends …’’
Craig Wright was challenged by a follower and he was asked why he was undermining Antonopoulos when he argued that Andreas is not a prolific bitcoin advocate and that the only authority he has is the one over ‘’SegWit Coin.’’
Two years ago, Wright called the Lightning Network ‘’flawed’’ because he believes it wouldn’t work for its intended purposes, unlike Antonopoulos who is a major supporter of the Lightning Network and SegWit. Wright pointed out:
‘’The Lightning Network is oversold. It has a place but not as a global payment system. The problem is simple. It is the maths behind the system. As much as people desire it to work, it is provably flawed due to a[n] incomprehension that exists surrounding Bitcoin.’’
Despite the Twitter call out, Antonopoulos has never tried to hide his support for the layer-2 solutions and has even written in a blog post that without the layer-2 solutions the entire bitcoin ecosystem could become centralized.
