Tether and Bitfinex's general counsel, Stuart Hoegner, issued three tweets in a row: "Craig Wright claims that Nakamoto is opposed by many people. Tether is also a party to opposition, and Okamoto has countless opportunities. To prove that he is Nakamoto, but there is no final proof. Therefore, we are very happy to support Peter McCormack in defending the defamation lawsuit filed by Ahn Chong in the court. The lawsuit may be protracted and costly, but we are committed to long-term game. Admire Peter's beliefs and support his defense against what we consider to be trivial and unreasonable litigation."
