Today, on October 14, the Litecoin founder Charlie Lee posted a tweet in response to a post published by Tone Vays, a crypto trader.

The trader made it public that he is going to represent Bitcoin on stage at the CC Blockchain Forum in London (taking place 14 – 16 October), since no one else was going to do that and dispute with the ‘fake Satoshi’ Craig Wright.

The reason for Lee's rebukes is simple – many leaders of top crypto platforms refused to take part in the event when they found out that Dr Craig Wright would be present as one of the speakers.

Tone Vays chose to speak on Bitcoin, since, as per his tweet, Roger Ver, who was going to do that in the first place and dispute with Dr. Doom (Nouriel Roubini), a major BTC critic. Vays posted a screenshot of participants' list, saying that Roger Ver was suddenly replaced with Wright.

However, the official website of the event shows both Roger Ver and Craig Wright as speakers.

Apart from the aforementioned people, among the speakers will be the Bitcoin investor Tim Draper and the crypto anarchist John McAfee who is currently running for this US presidential chair and has launched his own McAfeeDEX.
