In Crypto Twitter (CT), your standing within the community can change very quickly. One day you may feel like you’re on the top of the world but one erroneous call or poor judgment can instantly rob you of your fame. Arguably, no other personality in CT knows this better than trader Tone Vays. The crypto trader has managed to amass a following of over 193,000 followers despite being the target of ridicule and contempt by many big accounts.

Before Vays attended the London Blockchain Conference, he was the recipient of harsh words from Litecoin creator Charlie Lee. This happened after Tone Vays revealed that he plans to speak at the conference regardless of the fact that Craig Wright, also known as ‘Faketoshi’, is a resource speaker.

As most of CT already knows, Craig Wright has been claiming that he is Satoshi Nakamoto or the inventor of bitcoin. Virtually no one in the community agrees.

Yet Vays pressed on because he was planning to surprise Craig Wright and the rest of the Crypto Twitter community.

Tone Vays: ‘We Are All Satoshi Except for Craig S. Wright’

The text above is written legibly on Tone Vays’ shirt. The trader wore that shirt while comfortably sitting next to ‘Faketoshi’ Craig Wright.

A tweet by the user Giacomo Zucco  caught our attention as he posted a photo of Vays looking directly at Faketoshi while flexing the shirt.

Vays’ latest antics were well-received by the Crypto Twitter community. User MMCrypto thought that it was a boss move from Tone Vays.

Crypto Rand also chimed in. The crypto trader with over 216,000 followers thought that Tony Vays pulled off a “legend move.”

On top of the shirt, users also spotted another piece of Vays’ clothing that takes a jab at Craig Wright. When the crypto trader crossed his leg, it revealed that he was wearing long socks with numerous printings of bitcoin’s logo. This was a clear statement of his bitcoin maximalism.

Yesterday, most of the community disliked Vays for attending the conference. But today, he redeemed himself and Crypto-Twitter applauded him for his efforts. Just another day in the Crypto Twitter community.
