Star Trek star William Shatner is the newest crypto ally
Actor William Shatner, best known for his portrayal of Captain Kirk in the Star Trek franchise, is the youngest celebrity to join the crypto train. Shatner is currently considering creating his own crypto podcast and is not afraid to share his thoughts about the industry – including marking Craig Wright as a scam.
Captain Kirk is considering hosting his own crypto podcast
While there is no shortage of crypto podcasts and shows on the Internet today, the community seems to appreciate everything the industry is known for – especially if it could come from Captain Kirk himself.
William Shatner, the legendary Canadian-born actor best known for his decades of portrayal of Star Trek’s Captain Kirk, is considering creating and hosting his own podcast. According to his Twitter account, the renowned actor wants to use his platform to promote cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
Should Shatner decide to start their own crypto podcast, the topic of cryptocurrencies could find an invaluable spread. Shatner told his 2.5 million Twitter followers that he did not intend to mention certain coins or products, but that he would like to discuss the potential of blockchain technology and the industry in general.
Craig Wright's conviction as Satoshi Nakamoto triggers a massive Twitter fight
The Wright topic came up in one of Shatner's discussions on Twitter when asked if “Faketoshi” had attended the roundtable conference. To the dismay of the BSV community, Shatner took the opportunity to denounce Wright and to question the validity of many of his claims. Shatner said of the nChain scientist:
“Why can't he prove it? From what I've read, a mysterious bound courier would deliver the keys (which is frankly a scene straight from “Back to the Future”), if he is, he should be able to prove it. It's like today's search for Anastasia. ”
Calvin Ayre, CEO of Ayre Group, said that Wright “can prove everything” and “has all the evidence”.
“He doesn't owe anything to all of us, and having keys isn't proof like what he's doing in court,” he wrote on Twitter.
The discussion quickly developed into a bitter struggle between those who support Wright and those who think he is a scam. Shatner, who received a lot of criticism from the BSV community, made sure that his opinion on the matter was crystal clear – there is little to no chance that Wright is actually Satoshi.
