CoinGeek Sues The Soon Times Over Funny Articles

The Soon Times vs CoinGeek

BSV media arm CoinGeek, led by billionaire Calvin Ayre, has decided to sue the Soon Times because their newest satire articles caused CoinGeek unjust negative attention.

It started when the Soon Times released some new pieces exclusively on BSV and CoinGeek that attracted a larger audience than usual. Naturally, these pieces circulated throughout the internet and made their way to places like twitter and the r/bsv subreddit.

Kurt Wuckert Jr, Chief BSV historian, was the first CoinGeek employee to lay eyes on the debacle. After shouting "Communists!" into his computer screen, he gave the CoinGeek team a call.

After some initial suggestions on how to tackle the situation, CEO Calvin Ayre chimed in, explaining, that it was most likely former Bitcoin dev Greg Maxwell and a lawsuit was necessary.  He explained that since the stories are written under "staff," they could still sue him as a John Doe to draw him out.

The last person to notify was Dr. Craig Wright, PhD, inventor of Bitcoin, NFTs, and 1000 other things. Once he got the Slack notification, he couldn't hold back.

When asked about the lawsuit, the Soon Times said, "Sometimes we have a hard time writing stories since CoinGeek already does great satire to begin with. Bring it Faketoshi."
