To introduce Peter Todd it should be said that he is the former bitcoin core developer. Isis Agora Lovecruft known as a transgender cryptographer was sued by Todd. It is because Todd mentioned the person deleted a tweet where she called Todd a ‘’rapist’’. But Lovecruft and Zooko Wilcox (zcash co-founder) filed a declaration in the court with evidences and Lovecruft censured Todd of sexual abasement during consulting work on a bitcoin project. She mentioned a quote of Tood in the declaration file which was ‘’I am going to shove my cock in you so hard and beat you until you beg for more’’.
Private messages of Todd with a third party got revealed to the court which said about his sexual advances. Another private message of a woman showed that the woman was claiming herself raped by the man. Recod of 2012 said that Todd was one of the top 25 contributors to the Bitcoin Core code repository. These all are according to Wilcox’s court declaration. Wilcox also mentioned in the court declaration that a female friend explaining being pressured into sex by Todd.

Because of this particular reason she stopped participating in bitcoin project.
Jane Doe depicted Todd’s supposed coercive sexual assault in express detail which was reliable with the court filling yet thus there were no evidence from outsider to the supposed ambush.
