Craig Wright Announces Lawsuit Against OkCoin Over April Fools Prank

Calvin Ayre and Craig Wright

On Friday, April 1st, OkCoin announced that Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) was relisted on their exchange. As it turns out, they really never did - it was all an elaborate April fools prank that started on Twitter. They even put the cherry on top with a sh*tcoin emoji where the BSV price chart normally would be. The leader of BSV, Dr Craig Wright, had a plan to combat OkCoin's transgression. 

"It's quite amazing that these baboons didn't know my invention can scale to billions of transactions per second. We plan to file a lawsuit against OkCoin for their illegal prank on the real Bitcoin" Wright remarked in a special April 1st interview with BSV Historian Kurt Wuckert Jr on the CoinGeek Weekly Livestream.

Wuckert nodded in agreement as Satoshi continued to call out OkCoin for their inappropriate joke about BSV.

He then took the chance to congratulate Satoshi on his latest news appearance: "Excellent work on your recent appearance on Kitco News with David Lin. You did a great job showing the Greg Maxwell NPCS why you're Satoshi."

Wright thanked Kurt and shouted into his webcam: "Just like all my successful lawsuits against Ira Kleiman and all my other enemies, our case against OkCoin will end in its downfall." Startled by the outburst, Wuckert changed the segment to a waiting guest: his boss Calvin Ayre.

As Craig gathered his composure, Calvin explained why he thought it was a brilliant idea to sue OkCoin for their slander. "We all know Craig is Satoshi; his flawless appearance on Kitco the other day further shows his brilliance. Can you imagine thinking it's one of those cypherpunk guys - Nick Szabo or Adam Back! BSV is Bitcoin, and OkCoin owes us for their slanderous actions" Calvin said with a cautious laughter to Kurt. 

Quietly, by order of a Slack message, Nchain and Ayre Venture lawyers quietly met in an Antiguan office to discuss a strategy in taking down OkCoin. 

The show ended with a Nchain intern sprinting into Craig's room holding a 12 pack of diet coke, along with Kurt pulling out his Mountain Dew and Calvin with his favorite Antiguan wine. The three men virtually cheered with their drinks as they announced a new era of BSV, beginning with the downfall of OkCoin.

When asked about the lawsuit, OkCoin CEO Hong Fang smiled and said, "BSV will be at 0 by the time the lawsuit sees court."
