Craig Replies WikiLeaks
After trashing Craig, the “The Bernie Madoff of Bitcoin”, responded in a blog post in February 2019, where he criticised the embattled Founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange, calling his business “a criminal markets and bucket shops”.
He likened Assange to “Ross Ulbricht”, saying the two and “others like him are criminals”. Craig, said they and their ilk are predators.
Responding to Craig claims, WikiLeaks through different tweets pointed to the crypto community that Craig attempted to raise money for his business projects and at the same time attempting to escape court action.
Afterward, WikiLeaks said it personally has information on series of offences, bordering document forgery and fraud, which were committed by Wright.

Meanwhile, a large number of cryptocurrency enthusiasts are attacking Craig Wright on his decision to sue Hodlonaut, while Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin also followed the same trend by calling him a fraud.
@ProfFaustus stop being a fraud, please. You're not Satoshi. That said, your tweets make a great living argument for the #no280 movement.
