Ownen Cong sent a message that John McAfee was a liar, and McAfee responded that "I am the real Craig Wright."

In a blog post on June 4th, Craig Wright called the father of anti-virus software, cryptocurrency supporter John McAfee, a liar. On June 7, McAfee responded on Twitter: "I am the real Craig Wright. I can prove it. Absolutely. I am applying for a patent as Craig Wright. I can easily prove that I am him. But I won't do this. You must believe me. I will sue Craig to pretend to be me soon." McAfee's response has sparked a hot debate in the encryption community, and British encrypted show host Peter McCormack and others have been under the tweet. A reply similar to the sentence was issued.
