BSV Ringleader Craig Wright Hisses Back at WikiLeaks as Being a Fake and Fabricated News Site

Craig Wright has always been a divisive figure in the crypto ecosystem and nothing had created more controversies than his claims that he is Satoshi Nakamoto.

People have routinely criticized Dr. Wright for these claims. In 2018, when the battle between Bitcoin SV and Bitcoin ABC was at the peak, Bitmain leader Jihan Wu called Craig Wright “fake Satoshi” on Twitter after Wright threatened to force Bitmain into bankruptcy. In one of his Tweets Wu said:

“So, Fake Satoshi admitted that he was never a part of BCH founding community. Fuck off to BSV is the best thing for Craig cults and BCH community.”

Towards the end of last year, even Roger Ver publically admitted that he does not believe Craig Wright is Satoshi. He affirmed that, at this point, it simply does not matter anymore and that the only thing that this would accomplish would be to lower his opinion of Satoshi because he does not believe in Wright and disagrees with his violent approach.

Also, he said that he could just sign something with the genesis block of Bitcoin if he wants to prove that he is Satoshi.

Wright recently got into a feud with Wikileaks which did not look for the self-proclaimed Satoshi. Based on the information from WikiLeaks, it looks like Wright decided to edit a blog on August 26, 2008. Rather than changing the phrasing of existing content, he added a sentence about his work on cryptocurrency.

Now, according to crypto news publishers Cryptopotato, there is more evidence against Satoshi’s claims. He had released an abstract of a research paper called “Black Net” to claim that he is Satoshi.

It was done to show how his research paper was similar to Satoshi’s Bitcoin whitepaper. What Wright missed was that there were two versions of Bitcoin whitepaper, one that came out in August 2008 and the final one in October. Wright’s paper also has these corrections, which raised eyebrows.


In all likelihood, Dr. Wright is doing the whole gimmick again to pump the price of BCH-SV.

“This seems to prove that Craig Wright published fake evidence in an attempt to establish his legitimacy as the real Satoshi. The reasons for wanting to claim to be Satoshi are obvious -fame and respect from all members of the crypto space and technology industry at large,” the publication writes.

If Dr. Wright had some credible proof, it is more than probable that he would have shown it to the world.
