John McAfee fires back at Craig Wright after calling McAfee Mr. Conman

In an interview with Finder, Bitcoin SV proponent and the self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator, Craig Wright took a swing at several leading industry personalities like Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao and US Presidential candidate John McAfee.

During the interview, Wright refers to McAfee as Mr. Conman. On Friday, McAfee responded to the insult, despite the interview taking place more than a month ago. In a tweet, McAfee stated he hasn’t taken Wright’s insult too seriously:

McAfee then tweeted again a short time later stating that he's the real Craig Wright and he can prove it, but he isn’t going to. Instead, we have to just believe him.

McAfee’s tweet started a long sarcastic discussion featuring input from a prominent member in the community, host of What Bitcoin Did podcast, Peter McCormack:

Similarly, Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum co-founder, explained in an interview early last month why he thought Wright isn’t Satoshi. As Vitalik says, signaling theory states if you have “good” way and a “noisy” way of proving something and you go with the latter, it’s probably because you couldn’t go with the good way.

Vitalik reaffirmed his belief during a more recent interview where he said: “obviously Bitcoin SV is a scam.”
