A book about proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, Craig Wright was dropped by the publisher. The Australian publisher of the book, entitled “Behind the Mask: Craig Wright and the Battle for Bitcoin” released the news to crypto press this morning.
Moments after the announcement, Wright released his own statement. He claims he is ‘99.9999% certain’ he will get access to his Bitcoin stash.
The BTC fortune, worth billions, is stored with Tulip Trust until Bitcoin’s real inventor can prove ownership.
Until Wright furnishes the Bitcoin private keys to the courts to prove he’s really Satoshi Nakamoto, the crypto community will keep speculating. The news of Craig Wright’s book drop will only add fuels to the fire.
Why was the release of “Behind the Mask” canceled?
Words on the street is that Wright threaten to sue the author because he was not involved in the writing. Calvin Ayre, an entrepreneur with dual Canadian-Antiguan citizenship is the sole author.
He is the founder of Ayre Group and Bodog entertainment, which made him a billionaire. Sources claim Ayre stop the book release due to the fact that “the threat of litigation was too high.” Wright, however, denied he ever threaten Ayre with lawsuits.
The publishing company in charge of distributing Craig Wright’s book has already taken pre-orders. “Behind the Mask: Craig Wright and the Battle for Bitcoin,” was scheduled to be shipped on January 28.
In addition, “Behind the Mask: Craig Wright and the Battle for Bitcoin” was going to be made available for purchase on Amazon and other outlets worldwide on that date.
Is Wright involved in a Bitcoin SV pump-and-dump scheme?
Bitcoin SV (BSV), a Bitcoin fork pumped more than 295% after Wright claimed he’s close to gain access to his 1 million bitcoins held in Tulip Trust.
Wright is Bitcoin SV’s #1 fan. He is heavily involved in promoting BSV as the ‘original’ bitcoin. Wright often speculates about the BSV and have made outrages claims.
As a result, many in the crypto community have accused right of participating in a ‘pump-and-dump’ scheme with BSV’s wales and founders.
What are your thoughts? Is Craig Wright threats to sue the author of “Behind the Mask” another scheme to pump Bitcoin SV some more?
