Craig Wright, a senior researcher at nChain and self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, filed a claim for honor and dignity in the High Court of London against the popular podcast owner Peter McCormack.

I'm getting sued by a couple of billionaires for saying words. The "alleged" inventor of censorship-resistant money doesn't like free speech.

Wright demanded £ 100,000 in damages and litigation costs. Next week, the court should determine the time frame in which McCormack should provide an answer, after which the immediate trial will begin.

Nevertheless, McCormack did not lose heart and sarcastically offered the plaintiff his deal.

I'll agree to all terms and rather than pay Craig £100k, I'll pay him £150k, but I would like £50k in Bitcoin in return from the Genesis block. Or from the Satoshi wallet, I didn't realise the Genesis Block is unspendable.

Earlier, Wright confirmed his intention to sue the Twitter user Hodlonaut with a claim for the protection of honor and dignity, and also offered a reward of $ 5000 in BSV-equivalent for information that will help in his identification. He also revealed some of the personal data of his critic.

However, the community instantly responded to the aggressive actions of the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto: users began to rename accounts to “Hodlonaut” and change avatars.

In response to Wright's actions, the Binance, Kraken exchange and the ShapeShift exchange platform started to delist Bitcoin SV, promoted by an Australian entrepreneur.

Lightning Network Wallet by Breez to be Out For iOs

Solution is based on the lightweight client called Neutrino and it wallet supports Submarine Swaps technology

The Breez payment platform introduced a non-custodial wallet for iPhone that supports the Lightning Network protocol.

The basis of the new product is a lightweight client Neutrino. It is also known that the wallet supports Submarine Swaps technology, which makes it possible to conduct transactions between online addresses and the Lightning Network.

The company's blog says that immediately after installation, the application automatically connects the channel to the so-called Breez hub connected to other Lightning nodes, which allows the user to conduct transactions with any participants in the second-level network. In addition, according to the founder of the company, Ron Scheinfeld, the possibility of a refund is provided in the event of challenging purchases.

In a Lightning economy, people trade money for goods and services. Intermediaries — banks, credit cards, online payment processors, and custodians of any kind — are obsolete. All that remains are the people, trading with each other anywhere, anytime, free to do what each of them thinks is best with their own money. Scale is no longer a concern. Transactions are virtually instantaneous and practically free. The people are free too. Finally.

The company also noted that within only two months after the release of the version for Android, Breez benefited from "hundreds of users." Currently, the wallet is in beta.

On the eve of the release of the iOS application, the startup managed to attract $ 500,000 from Recruit Strategic Partners and Fulgur Ventures. The funds will be used to develop an application for merchants, allowing them to accept Lightning-payments.
