Hello Shitcoiners,

This edition of the newsletter is a little later than usual. The team have been doing some relocating and spicy newsletter content needed to wait for our undivided attention. Well now it has it!

In a week where Bitcoiners were discussing Bitcoin food vs fiat food we had a whole lot of shenanigans.

  • One man went to extraordinary lengths to state he was Satoshi. While Craig Wright might be about to get totally rekt.
  • @Bitcoin Twitter debates
  • Ethereum cult heroes dressed as fury animals
  • Memes and a diabolical tattoo or two

Yep, we have it all. Oh, and we forgot to mention it’s that time of the year where the world heads to Burning Man, including the crypto bros.

First up we take you to news of Satoshi Nakamoto Renaissance Holdings. It looks like Craig Wright has some hot competition in James Bilal Khalid Caan, who is of Pakistani heritage living in the UK.

In a pretty well orchestrated reveal that caused plenty of stir the new Satoshi on the block pulled his “pal” Hal into the conversation to supposedly validate his claims.

Many are not convinced.

And in a bit of juicy news hot off the press, Craig Wright has lost his case against Ira Kleiman!

What do you think to the latest CSW developments? Do you think he will ever pay up? Tell us on Telegram.

This next post is even more interesting when you think of the mind boggling amounts of BTC the Kleiman estate is owed. Where will the price go next year?

Other big news this week comes from SideShift AI. The rapid coin swap’s native token, SAI, is entering the CoinEx Accelerator. You can learn more about it and how you can get some of that sweet, sweet SAI by the CoinEx announcement page.

Oh, and they even released a sexy promo video to celebrate!

Now back to cases of unknown identities, the @Bitcoin Twitter handle is causing a stir this week as it continues to cull all mentions of BCH and pushes on with the BTC shilling.

It really is a shame the account has got so cringeworthy though. Check out this horrific tweet.

We hope for Trace’s sake that he is not behind it. Admitting it was you who wrote the above... yikes.

One man who is on the “followed” list of the @Bitcoin account is Samson Mow. He’s been taking his Twitter feed to new levels of soppiness lately and some people are not happy.

Speaking of guys and girls who live and breath the BTC, Peter McCormack admitted he has never set up a full node. Bad Peter!

One of our favourites chimed in. We divert your attention to a part of the newsletter that is truly a fan favourite. Welcome to Luke Dashjr corner!

Do you agree with Luke? How does McDonalds affect your morality? Tell us on Telegram!

If Luke is of the thinking that you have to run a full node to use Bitcoin, it’s highly likely he’s not a fan of BitPay either.

Why is the mempool so clear this week? Well it’s obvious isn’t it.

Let’s break this bad boy up and divert your attention to two instances of terrible tattoos. These are really bad. So bad, it’s almost painful to watch.

If you need some retail therapy to get over that little ordeal we suggest you head to the CoinSpice Store! These spicy socks have just hit the shelves and boy are they good lookin’. The model really sells them we think.

Those CoinSpice boys and girls are not shy of voicing their support of Bitcoin Cash. But how did the fork come around?

Haipo Yang, the founder of CoinEx, shares his take on the fork. It’s a great perspective from one of the key players of then and now.

Now to Ethereum world.

We would not expect anything less as some of the Ethereum OG’s took to the stage in furry costumes.

One man who wasn’t dressed like a fluffy little animal was Ameen of SpankChain. Just like CoinSpice, his company have their own sexy socks.

Now what do you do if you are getting a divorce and you have considerable crypto holdings? You have a boating accident like this guy!

Speaking of memes, is it weird if we have a meme folder?

Here are some of you will find in ours.

Now to finish this off we two important things to read and understand:

1. If you haven’t signed the petition to give Ross Ulbricht his freedom back, we urge you to do it.

2. Don't trust, verify.

To stay in the loop on all the things you need to know, follow Andreas on Twitter. And remember now is your chance to apply for a SideShift AI ACCESS CODE. Join the fun.

See you next week.
