Craig Wright speaks to Bloomberg: there is a desire to silence me

Controversial crypto figure Craig Wright has spoken out about the lawsuits in which he is currently embroiled with a number of leading crypto figures. In an interview with Bloomberg, he claimed that "there is a desire to silence" him in the crypto community.

Craig Wright is mostly known for his claims that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the anonymous individual who founded Bitcoin back in 2008. After suffering the repeated indignity of most people in the crypto community refuting these claims, Wright recently stepped up the conflict by filing lawsuits against a number of individuals and entities, including Vitalik Buterin and this very website - 

Wright's actions have led to much criticism, as well as a number of leading trading platforms including Binance delisting Bitcoin Cash SV, the Bitcoin hardfork that he is one of the primary backers of. 

Asked about his motivations for the lawsuits, Wright explained that he wants "the chance to prove my credentials in front of a judge rather than being judged by Twitter", and to "move on (and) get back to the science where I happily and openly debate ideas and concepts".

As for why he thinks people in the crypto community are so unwilling to accept Wright and his claims to be Satoshi, he believes they are afraid of "an end to the scams, the pumps and lies in a single system and honest protocol (Bitcoin Cash SV)...To my mind a simple denial of the basic principles of Bitcoin. Anybody who reads the White Paper can see quite clearly that BSV is the only coin that reflects that paper and has proved it’s the only coin that can scale".
