Craig Wright Says His 2008 Credit Card Payment Proves He Co-Owned Bitcoin.org aka Satoshi Nakamoto?
nChain’s Craig Wright claims that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of the most popular digital asset Bitcoin (BTC). Nonetheless, he has never decided to prove he is the real creator of Bitcoin. Many in the crypto industry do not believe that he is the real Satoshi Nakamoto, and because of this, he is suing them one by one.
Could Mr. Wright Prove He Is Satoshi?
Wright has always been involved in different controversies regarding the crypto space and whether or not he is Satoshi Nakamoto. He has published several blog posts that, as WikiLeaks reported, were allegedly fraudulent.
The Bernie Madoff of #Bitcoin, Craig S. Wright, who keeps forging documents to make it seem that he is Bitcoin's pseudonymous inventor Satoshi Nakamoto, caught again, this time forging a "2001" antecedent to Nakamoto's first Bitcoin paper. https://t.co/Xqmok0p0U4 pic.twitter.com/HssXgTuQ7l

Craig Wright claims that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, but the community has always rejected this multiple times. Indeed, he has sued a large number of individuals that say that he is not Satoshi. However, there are different ways to prove that he is indeed, the creator of Bitcoin.
He can easily sign with his private keys and move some of the funds of the first blocks. He could also sign messages with the keys from the first mined blocks. Furthermore, he could eventually use PGP keys that were from Nakamoto or just use a combination of these methods, which would help him prove that he is Satoshi.
Wright has recently withdrawn an email from Uyen Nguyen to Dave Kleiman since he cannot verify the data of that email exchange. Nonetheless, he did not withdraw the motion.
There are many issues with his claims that must be addressed if he wants to prove that he is Satoshi. Meanwhile, he will keep suing those who claim that he is not Bitcoin’s real creator.
CSW claims “Bitcoin was birthed using a credit card payment” and that he has the records on his taxes from 2008 that he paid for the domain name Bitcoin.org. It's a well known fact in the crypto community that the Bitcoin.org domain was owned by Satoshi and Sirius, a.k.a. Martti Malmi.
“The source of the funds that went to pay for the bitcoin.org domain registration on AnonymousSpeech.com derived from my credit card. More importantly, the same records remain current and valid.”
CSW provides the image below in his blog post.
He ends his blog post saying:
“I told you to be careful in what you wanted and what you wished for, because you’re going to get it. I am the person behind the moniker Satoshi Nakamoto, and as a result of all the trolls and haters, I’m going to provide evidence. Not in a way that anonymous cowards would do. I’m going to use courts and law. Welcome to law.”
What are your thoughts? Does this actually prove he is Satoshi or something he doctored to try and prove a point?
