The Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision (BSV) community in China has reportedly declared war on “multi-chain parallel computing network” Aelf (ELF) over its founder’s launch of a campaign against prominent BSV supporter and self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto Craig Wright.
According to crypto news outlet 8BTC, Aelf’s founder Ma Haobo called Craig Wright a scammer, and on the Chinese microblogging platform Weibo (a Twitter-like app) launched the # BoycottBSVAndCrtingFaketoshi hashtag, after learning Craig Wright allegedly cried in court during a hearing related to a $10 billion lawsuit filed against him.
The hashtag, 8BTC writes, gained the support of various popular cryptocurrency community members in the country, including F2Pool co-founder Mao Shixing, and Poolin mining pool co-founder Zhu Fa. It soon got to 200,000 views.
