Craig Wright trolls bought a more offensive domain name than ''...

As Craig S. Wright's legal strife continues, so does the anti-CSW trolling of the vast majority of the crypto community. The '' domain was recently bought up as part of a prank at his expense, and now another more offensive website name is involved.

The prankster behind this was probably a crypto enthusiast, opposed to Wright and his constant, unproven assertions that he is the mysterious Bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto, as well as his threats of legal action against those who deny his claims.

The domain 'C**' (rhymes with hunt) has now apparently been bought up and put to the same purposes as the comparatively innocent-sounding It's unclear whether this was a copycat troll or just the same prankster as before, upping the stakes with one of the most offensive words that the English language has to offer.

NewsBTC reports that the domain cost just over $20,000, slightly less than, although nobody can accuse whoever is behind this of not fully committing to the bit. Influential crypto podcaster Peter McCormack, who could soon be facing Wright in court as part of a defamation lawsuit filed by the so-called 'Faketoshi', seemed pleased with this latest development.

Wright is currently in the midst of his own lawsuit, brought against him by the estate of deceased software developer David Kleiman. Kleiman and Wright worked together in the early days of Bitcoin, and the Australian entrepreneur is accused of illegally taking over $5 billion worth of BTC that the pair mined together, after Kleiman's death.
