Bitcoin Website Editor Hodlonaut Receives Almost M in BTC as Craig Wright Case Looms

Hodlonaut, who is set to appear in a Norwegian court next month, has already raised 52.679 bitcoin and $30,000 in donations.

A prominent member of the Bitcoin community said in a tweet they had received a 47 bitcoin ($1 million) donation ahead of a defamation court hearing involving nChain Chief Scientist Craig Wright.

The pseudonymous Hodlonaut, who works as an editor for bitcoin magazine Citadel21, has received a total of 52.679 bitcoin and $30,000 in donations from 1,891 people, according to the tweet.

Hodlonaut will appear in Norwegian court on Sept. 12 for a case that began in March 2019. Earlier this month, Wright was involved in a U.K. court hearing with bitcoin (BTC) podcaster Peter McCormack. High Court Judge Martin Chamberlain ruled that Wright used false evidence in the case.

Several members of the crypto community have shown their support for Hodlonaut with the social media hashtag #WeAreAllHodlonaut. Michael Saylor, the CEO of business-intelligence software developer and bitcoin investor MicroStrategy (MSTR), posted the hashtag on Twitter on the same day the 47 bitcoin donation was received.
