Dr. Craig Wright attended the CC Forum on blockchain, AI and digital innovations between October 14 and 16, speaking on panels and dueling other panelists. It was a big event if you enjoy differing point of views debating the hot technological topics of our time, and one we\u2019d like to take a look back on, with special attention to the viral moment of the week\u2014Dr. Wright\u2019s pumpkin farming. Finding common ground with a crypto skeptic The first item on the agenda to feature Dr. Wright, the inventor of Bitcoin, was the panel named \u201cThe Global Centralised Financial System: What are the flaws & challenges and what are the possible solutions?\u201d This panel featured top speakers from every corner of the digital asset world. Dr. Craig Wright spoke for Bitcoin SV (BSV), Tone Vays argued exclusively for BTC, Bobby Lee and Brock Pierce were on the side of cryptocurrency in general, while Nouriel Roubini was the crypto skeptic. Compared to other events on the agenda, this panel went fairly well. Wright and Vays clashed lightly on BTC\u2019s development strategy and the real Bitcoin and Nouriel criticized shitcoins, finding a lot of common ground with Wright while irritating Lee. https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v8WORkYsg2I4 Explaining nChain\u2019s patent strategy Wright\u2019s next turn at the conference came during a fireside chat with CEO of the Frontier Network, Eric Van Der Kleij. The two covered a wide range of topics, but spending a lot of time discussing nChain\u2019s strategy of patenting Dr. Wright\u2019s Bitcoin innovations, regulation in the crypto industry, and the perception of Wright in the wider cryptocurrency world. Particularly when Wright\u2019s integrity came into question, the chat got slightly antagonistic. Van Der Kleij chose to end on a question of Dr. Wright\u2019s farming habits; a topic that would come up in the next item on the conference agenda. Wright responded: My tomatoes, they keep bursting and things like that, because I\u2019m not there to do things. And the gardener sucks, because the last time, he actually mowed by pumpkins. https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?voSXk_xFBJPU&t6s A duel on Bitcoin\u2019s value As that event ended, Van Der Kleij immediately invited Mike Beaver on stage for a duel with Dr. Craig Wright on \u201cBitcoin does not have any real value, or does it?\u201d The two immediately proved to have problems seeing eye to eye, not finding common ground on the definition of what real value is, what the real Bitcoin is, and how much nChain\u2019s patents will protect BSV from future threats. Wright bristled at that notion, saying: I don\u2019t care. That simple. I\u2019ve got a great company, with a great team, we\u2019re expanding, we\u2019re setting up new offices. Investment wise, I don\u2019t need to do anything. People throw money at us if we want it. We\u2019re not actually taking any and they keep offering it. People want us to do an IPO at nChain. Why? Because we have fucking patents. https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v-OekM65zPbc The debate totally unraveled when the audience was invited to question the duelists, as Angelina Lazar lost her composure after Wright suggested BTC would be doomed to fail. https:\/\/twitter.com\/swissborg\/status\/1184444664847450113 Who is Angelina Lazar? Most coverage of Angelina Lazar you can find online refers to a past of running a Ponzi scheme through the Charismatic Exchange company between 2005 and 2007, which took minimum deposits of $20,000 and promised 20% returns. She pleaded guilty to running a fraudulent investment scheme and was deported to her home country of Canada for her trouble. More recently, she was a promoter of OneCoin for a period of time, calling it \u201cthe single most lucrative business and investment opportunity of a lifetime and in all history.\u201d At some point, that opinion changed and she turned against the outfit, accusing them of being a scam and attempting to have her arrested for speaking out. She now appears to be firmly in the camp of BTC, writing on Twitter \u201cPEOPLE OF THE WORLD: BITCOIN TO THE END OF TIME! They're tryin' to CRASH & REPLACE IT with THEIR ONE WORLD CURRENCY! ARE SO THREATNED BY BTC!\u201d Since gaining viral fame, she hasn\u2019t been shy to spar with BSV supporters, often going into capslock rants about rabbit-hole conspiracy theories, \u201cROGUE FBI agents,\u201d and pointing out Satan\u2019s work where she sees it. This appears to be just a passing moment for her though, as once she\u2019s free of the deep state and globalist conspiracy\u2019s clutches, she plans to continue her crusade against OneCoin. https:\/\/twitter.com\/Angelina_Lazar\/status\/1184802367767826432 Pumpkin Mania As fascinating as Angelina Lazar is, her lasting legacy from the CC Forum will likely be for inspiring the current pumpkin fascination in the BSV community. Her message to Dr. Wright to go back to his pumpkins has been fully embraced by everyone in the BSV industry, with everyone giving their best effort to get in on the fun. Some prefer to go right at the woman who inspired the moment: https:\/\/twitter.com\/sleepless117\/status\/1184589513038974986 Others have tried their hand at photoshopping: https:\/\/twitter.com\/BitcoinSVtrain\/status\/1184594878493118469 It wouldn\u2019t be a viral moment without a great gif: https:\/\/twitter.com\/sleepless117\/status\/1184972436632145921 And demonstrating he\u2019s not above having some fun with the moment, Dr. Wright has joined in too. https:\/\/twitter.com\/chblm\/status\/1185105257505984512 If you want to see some of the best memes of the moment, check out Bitcoin Association Founding President Jimmy Nguyen\u2019s Twitter thread on the topic.
