Craig Steven Wright, or CSW, is one of the most controversial and divisive figures in the cryptocurrency sector, and he certainly doesn’t seem keen on changing that fact anytime soon. Never once to mince his words, he recently took to Twitter to criticize XRP, the second largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. The first tweets appeared on November 17, and criticized Ethereum, as well.

In the tweets, he pointed out that XRP was undoubtedly a security because it certainly wasn’t  a utility token. For those unfamiliar, many governments around the world have different definitions of “securities”, although many agree that a security is a tradable good or asset that is sold in expectation of profit. According to Wright, “that in itself makes it a security”.

His criticism didn’t end there. He pointed to his past predictions in an attempt to enhance his credibility in this tweet, ending it quite dramatically: “XRP’s next”.

Mr. Wright then ramped up his rhetoric in the next tweet, proclaiming that “XRP is the biggest scam in the space”. He elaborated that he believed it was being sold to “noobs” – or newbies, or anyone who is inexperienced in a particular space –  who were hoping to get rich. The tweet received over 1,000 likes and two hundred retweets.

Craig Steven Wright has been criticized and accused of being a scammer by many in the space. There have been numerous times that his falsifications have been reported in the media, as well.

He has also claimed to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the inventor of Bitcoin, although some of the most well-known figures in the cryptocurrency sector, such as Vitalik Buterin, founder of Ethereum, have expressed doubt about this fact. This video, where Vitalik breaks down why he doesn’t believe that Craig Wright is Satoshi Nakamoto and has been viewed over 160,000 times.

Many also believe that CSW was behind the fake @Satoshi Twitter account that was suspended several days ago, that CryptoCoinSpy previously reported about here.
