“CSW transferred 50k BTC from the biggest BTC wallet to Binance, which confirmed he is the real Satoshi. As such CZ will re-list BSV and make an official apology on Twitter”.
The viral news, according to Wan appeared to be purposely innovated by an unknown person, and shared widely by nearly all Chinese cryptocurrency news platforms across the country.
The propagator of the fake news used the picture of Bishijie, a reputable Chinese crypto news media.
While it may be hard to say the fake news contributed to BSV price pump, the snapshot went viral in the country.

“Careful, it’s caused by fake news circulation in China. I got pinged 20 times today, clarifying it is fake.”
Binance Delisted BSV
Mid April, Binance decided to delist BSV after the originator of the digital asset threatened to sue any member of Crypto Twitter who calls him Fraud.
Binance CEO earlier warned Craig Wright to desist from attacking twitter users who said he’s not Satoshi Nakamoto.
How the Discord Started
Craig’s attack on Hodlonaut, a cryptocurrency analyst on Twitter and some others fueled the decision of Binance to delist BSV. However, the exchange did not mention the twitter issues among the reasons it decided to delist BSV.
Binance afterward, went to Twitter to call Craig Wright a fraud, saying “the real Satoshi can digitally sign any message to prove it,” and that doing so would be simple.
At the time Wright forwarded a desist letter to Peter McCormack, who has been afore calling Craig Wright a fraud.
Other exchanges like ShapeShift, Kraken, SBI VC, and many others delisted the digital currency.
Copyright Application Filed. Will Craig Finally Become Satoshi Nakamoto?
Craig Filed a copyright application with the U.S Copyright to claim the authorship of Bitcoin Codes and Whitepaper, thereby giving him the opportunity to be called pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.
However, Coingeek published that US Copyright had recognised Craig Wright as the real Satoshi Nakamoto. The information was later confirmed to be false by the US Copyright Office, who claimed Craig only filed an application and has not been confirmed to be the author of the Bitcoin code and whitepaper.
