Served! pic.twitter.com/wr4uiOtQCj — Dr. Peter McCormack (@PeterMcCormack) April 18, 2019 In the suit, Wright accuses McCormack of libeling him by denying he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin. McCormack had sent a tweet on April 10 not only denouncing Wright’s claim but also calling him a ‘fraud’. Dear @CalvinAyre, I would like to formally state that:1. Craig Wright is not Satoshi2. Craig Wright is a fraud3.
