Bitcoin started out as a mere internet phenomenon and later rose to popularity as well as price charts to get everyone's attention, and the attention cum fascination has continued for almost a decade now. While Bitcoin has been at the center of numerous controversies and speculations, the biggest one has been about its creator Satoshi Nakamoto.
Satoshi Nakamoto is the pseudo name given to the original creator of Bitcoin, and even till date, no one really knows whether it is a man or a woman or a group behind the creation of the coin. However, that has not stopped the speculation mill to zero down upon the pseudo-anonymous creator, but alas there is no certain or evidential proof for the same.
A number of people have come out claiming to be the anonymous creator, but the most prominent and someone who has made a career out of it is nChain's chief scientist Craig Wright. Craig Wright's earliest claims came during an interview where he used a personal key to sign transaction attached to the first block.
However, it was quickly debunked by numerous analysts where they explained that Craig used a random key to generate a signature in the genesis block and since the interviewer had no knowledge about cryptography or the cryptocurrency he could not really tell what Craig was showing. After that Craig made several attempts to claim that he is the real man behind the Bitcoin creation, debunked every time, and thus earning him the name Faketoshi.
However, despite being called the Faketoshi and majority of the community calling him a habitual liar, Craig has got quite a support base, and among all those names, Calvin Ayre is the most notable name.
Calvin Ayre's One-Sided Bromance With Craig Wright
Calvin Ayre is a famous former gambling tycoon who has backed the claims of Craig Wright numerous times and even called out others for not believing in the claims. But its really an uphill task to convince the community who has seen every claim of Craig being shot down almost immediately.
Craig's fascination to become Satoshi has only got him as fas as “Faketoshi”, and it has also put a question mark on his credibility as a learned and earliest adopters of the blockchain. Recently, Wikileaks brought conclusive proof to the table that Wright edited his original blog, a blog that was the foundation to his claims of being Satoshi.
Post the expose made by Jullian Assange group, both Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre teamed up to trash the Wikileaks which the community watched from the sidelines and took it with a pinch of salt. The truth is people have stopped giving attention to Craig after they realized that he thrives on the attention, good or bad.
Calvin Ayre Did Not Get The Support Of Craig
Calvin has never held back from supporting Craig on his claims and his credibility but Craig has never returned the same favor to Ayre even in his toughest time. Ayre's affection and support might look bizarre to many given Wright has been debunked numerous times and even has been called a pathological liar by his own mother.
When Ayre's photos of enjoying twerking by underaged girls surfaced, the whole internet went into a meltdown, but Ayre did not see even an iota of support from the man whom he had defended at any cost at all the times.
However, even this did not deter Ayre from showing his support for the Wright as he has been involved in multiple twitter feuds with numerous community members of Bitcoin and more recently even Ethereum. Calvin has called Vitalik a moron who does not understand the economy and even accused the Ethereum creator to have copied Craig's idea.
Calling others for not understanding economy looks rich coming from Ayre given that he himself has been indicated numerous times in money laundering and illegal trading charges.
Calvin Ayre's unfazed support for Craig and his Bitcoin SV network does not come from a technical perspective or knowledge about the Distributed ledger Technology. but, it is purely based on the blind belief that Craig is the real Satoshi. However, the blind support for Bitcoin SV has neither helped the network to progress or deliver on the promises that Craig made during the infamous hard fork of Bitcoin cash Network.
