Craig Wright, the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, has seen another failure in his ongoing legal battle against the popular cryptocurrency proponent going by the Twitter handle Hodlonaut. The Supreme Court in Norway rejected Wright’s jurisdiction appeal.
CSW Vs. Hodlonaut: The Backstory
Craig Wright has attracted lots of attention to himself, especially after claiming on numerous occasions that he’s the person behind the anonymous pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto. However, as he had failed to provide conclusive evidence that he is indeed Bitcoin’s creator, lots of community members have openly refuted his claims.
One of the most vocals doubters from the start has been the Twitter user Hodlonaut. As a result, Wright sued him last year but without much success so far. As CryptoPotato reported in January 2020, the United Kingdom High Court dismissed his defamation case because it didn’t have jurisdiction.
Nevertheless, the case continued in another European country – Norway. Several months later, the Norwegian Court of Appeals denied Wright’s appeal, and he had to pay all costs associated with the legal case.
Hodlonaut later shared an update asserting that two months after the Court’s ruling, Wright hadn’t “paid a cent.” However, Wright had no intention to seize his case.

Another Rejection For CSW
Earlier today, Hodlonaut provided another update on the ongoing case, which again wasn’t in Wright’s favor. Per the tweet, the Supreme Court in Norway rejected Wright’s jurisdiction appeal and awarded Hodlonaut another $6,000 on top of the $60,000 that he is owned from the previous rejection.

His perfect loss record is intact. (4 out of 4)🤡
The real case will now go forward in Norway where another loss surely awaits him.

Despite the positive news for Hodlonaut, the “real” case will continue in Norway until a final verdict. However, he seemed rather optimistic about his chances and said that “another loss surely awaits him [Wright].”
Another one of Wright’s legal battles also received an adverse outcome for the self-proclaimed BTC creator. A US District Court recently denied “on all grounds” his motion to dismiss the Kleiman vs. Wright lawsuit, where he fights the estate of his deceased former partner over 1.1 million bitcoins.
