Craig Wright's Notorious Satoshi Nakamoto Saga Continues as More Mismatch Materials Arise

    One sector that is shaking up the entire world now without a doubt is that of crypto businesses. Still shrouded in near-absolute mystery is the purported brain behind bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto.

    Of late, Craig Wright claimed that he is the ‘real’ Satoshi Nakamoto and he insisted that he was saying nothing but the truth despite some derisive responses to his claim.

    Claims and Examination of the Claims

    However, it looks like Wright’s claim has been scientifically rubbished forever. This is because Wright’s claim to be the brain behind bitcoin was taken up by Jameson Lopp, the chief technology officer of CasaHodl and by the time he was finished with his analysis, it became abundantly clear that Wright was not only lying but that there was no way he could possibly be Nakamoto.

    The most interesting thing about this discovery was how Lopp went about the whole thing – he made use of timestamps.

    The Revelation

    Lopp took the time to examine the online activities of both Satoshi Nakamoto and Craig Wright. He broke it down into hourly snippets from 2009 to 2010. During this timeframe, it is widely believed that the ‘real creator of Bitcoin’ Satoshi Nakamoto was communicating live on some selected bitcoin platforms.

    Lopp examined the activities of the two individuals and then went ahead to create explanatory visual charts and representations. A quick glance at these charts shows that Wright goofed big time because the charts show very clear differences and a reflection of the activities of two different people.

    Lopp categorized the activities of Satoshi by making use of ‘post and code commits,’ and he used the posts made on blogging platforms to track that of Wright. In the chart, the geographical location of Nakamoto is not displayed but it is clear that Wright was based in Australia as at the time and thus his time zone could be scrutinized on a deeper level.

    In examining the charts based on the activities by the hour, it was seen the Nakamoto was least active on the forums between 0600 and 1300 UTC, and he was busiest online from 1600 to 2300 UTC. While observing the activities of Wright, one can see that his own had numerous highs and lows – a clear display of intermittent activity.

    His was also low from 1200 to 1900 UTC with zero activity from 1500 to 1700 UTC. When you realize that Nakamoto was busiest from 1600 to 2300 UTC and Wright was absent from 1500 to 1700 UTC, you will surely not take his claim seriously.

    Further analysis of the periods of activity (assuming Nakamoto is based on the eastern coast of the United States of America reveals a normal sleeping pattern. If the western coast of the United States is also used as the exact location of Satoshi Nakamoto, the outcome is also practically the same – totally different from what the stats are showing for Wright.

    As a result of the fact that Wright is based in Australia, Lopp used the Australian time zone calculations to nail him and a comparison of the two sleeping patterns show that while Nakamoto had a normal and predictable sleep pattern, Wright had a more disorderly and irregular sleep rhythm while his posts emanate from the eastern portion of Australia.

    More Troubles for Wright

    When another member on the thread named Dr. Funkenstein revealed another collection of charts on the same discussion board, it only corroborated what Lopp was saying all along. The new set of charts point to the pre and post activities of both Nakamoto and Wright.

    Once again, the differences are just too clear and there is no way both can be the same person. A deeper analysis of further online activities by Satoshi Nakamoto and Craig Wright only makes more nonsense of the claims by the latter.

    Renewed Excitement over Nakamoto

    That the analysis above showed the possibility that Nakamoto, the purported real founder of the incredible bitcoin could be living on the eastern coast of the United States of America has led to renewed excited on who the enigma really is.

    In fact, the hunt for Nakamoto seems to be on an increased tempo of recent. Lately, John McAfee, the charismatic and unpredictable brain behind the McAfee antivirus package declared that he not only knows who the real Nakamoto is but that he was going to expose him. Reportedly, Nakamoto is totally not excited with the possibility of his exposure and has reportedly expressed his fury to McAfee.

    An unveiling of Nakamoto will have serious consequences on the bitcoin world. First, the news will have an instant impact on the value of the bitcoin itself and the next controversy will surround the one million bitcoins said to be in the custody of Nakamoto. Whatever the case, it seems the world has to wait for the reclusive genius.
