Calvin Ayre Tries to Spin Wright vs McCormack Failure as Win
A smoke cover
Calvin Ayre, the billionaire who funds all of Craig Wright's court cases and other public appearances, has recently tried to spin Wright's clear loss to McCormack in their libel case as a win. The court case took place in England.
The reason for the case was that Faketoshi Craig Wright claimed podcaster Peter McCormack defamed him in some tweets stating that he was not Satoshi Nakamoto. Judge Chamberlain, who oversaw the case, actually determined in his judgement that McCormack defamed Wright (since McCormack dropped his "truth" defense), but this is really only on paper. Chamberlain called Wright's original case "deliberately false."
It was revealed that since Wright lied so much that, despite the fact that the judge confirmed McCormack's statement were defamatory, he decided to make the damages 1 British pound. That's right, just one. Normally, damage payments total in the thousands. As noted by renowned Bitcoin journalist Arthur van Pelt, it's quite obvious that Chamberlain formally ruled in favor of Wright so that he couldn't sue McCormack again on the grounds of defamation. There is also a chance that if McCormack countersues, Wright could be charged with perjury, since the judge stated he lied in his testimony.
It's important to emphasize that at this point in the crypto world, Craig Wright being nothing but a fraud is common knowledge. Years ago, Wright sued Adam Back and Vitalik Buterin for publicly debunking his Satoshi claims, which he viewed as defamation. Both cases ended up getting dropped and Wright had to pay the court costs of both computer scientists. At best, Wright is an IT guy that has never been a computer scientist, despite his wild claims. In fact, a researcher showed in 2021, that Wright can't code at all.
Ayre tried to paint the case as a definitive win for Wright, despite the actual judgement being mostly critical of Wright's many false and misleading statements.
Calvin Ayre is a manipulator
In a recent article I wrote on the life of Calvin Ayre, it came to light that Ayre is still up to his old tricks. He is a very deceptive man, and will stop at nothing to put out propaganda that fills his pockets more. His media firm, CoinGeek, is a front for BSV propaganda.
Ayre is a careful manipulator, who maintains the "Craig Wright is Satoshi Nakamoto" lie, by constantly tweeting that Mastercard and the World Economic Forum control Bitcoin. He also frequently asserts that they suppress Craig Wright's technology (which actually isn't his, it's that of the BSV developers). It's safe to say that nothing will change Ayre's mind, and he will continue his actions until BSV is finally rug-pulled.
