A London blockchain conference has pulled the headline for one of its most controversial talks after the crypto community rallied in defiance against its speaker – the self-proclaimed creator of bitcoin Craig Wright, AKA ‘Faketoshi’.
The CC Forum scheduled to take place Oct. 14-16 has a number of high-profile figures attending, including the infamous anti-crypto advocate Nouriel ‘Dr. Doom’ Roubini. Wright’s Fireside chat was controversially titled, “What Was Your Purpose as Satoshi Writing the Whitepaper?” but has since been removed seemingly in response to a boycott from the crypto community.
BitMEX Research caught wind of the headline on Sunday afternoon and promptly fired up a tweetstorm in protest of Craig Wright’s unrelenting Satoshi Nakamoto claim.
