Craig Wright Against Julian Assange
Craig Wright, who claims to be Bitcoin (BTC) founder, said that the most popular cryptocurrency is not cypherùnk. He has also mentioned that he got tired of the antics of Julian Assange. He said that in a recently released blog post
Julian Assange became famous for founding the website Wikileaks that released secret and sensitive information from different countries. However, Craig Wright, the founder of Bitcoin SV (BSV), says that Bitcoin was never supposed to be related to a cypherpunk, which is considered an activist that works in order to use cryptography to protect privacy and change politics.
He wrote about Bitcoin:
“Bitcoin was never a cypherpunk experiment. I left the Cypherpunks mailing list in the ‘90s because I couldn’t stand people like Julian Assange. I couldn’t stand what some of the people there stood for. I was the opposite of many others on the cryptography mailing list.”
However, Satoshi Nakamoto wrote the white paper of Bitcoin and sent it to the cypherpunk mail list in October 2008. He went on saying that he never supposed that these cypherpunks were going to take his creation – Craig Wright claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto – and turn it into a system to promote illicit activity.
About the creation of Bitcoin SV, he commented that he wanted to create something to allow individuals to conduct businesses without being in trouble with legality. At the moment, the U.S. Copyright Office considers that Wright’s claims have not yet been fully verified.
