Did Archive.org and Microsoft Office Just Expose Craig Wright as “FakeToshi”?

Craig Wright has continually been claiming that he is Satoshi, and there has been a long list of people to claim that he is not the Bitcoin creator at all. In a recent publishing of a paper from Wright, details about Microsoft Office may be enough to disprove his statements.

  • Craig Wright published an article that he claimed to have made in 2007.
  • The version of Microsoft Office used to publish this paper wasn’t available until after the paper’s alleged creation date.

Craig Wright is known by the entire cryptocurrency world as the man who claims that he is the true creator of Bitcoin, claiming to be the true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. He’s claimed this statement for years, and the topic has been brought even more into the spotlight this year with a court case that has been challenging this claim. Now, it looks like Wright is being exposed by another source.

On August 18th, a paper was uploaded by Wright to a database called Payments Providers and Intermediaries as Defined in the Law of the Internet. The submission date has been removed, but the paper is dated in 2007, showing the first line of the original Bitcoin whitepaper. Allegedly, Wright’s paper from 2007 said,

“In a similar manner to the web, a purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a payment intermediary.”

Even though this information would realistically validate Wright’s claims, it barely took 24 hours for this whole plot to be completely exposed. Peter McCormack, who is already tied in with Wright as a result of a lawsuit that accused him of libel, discovered some interesting facts regarding the paper. McCormack downloaded the only archived version of this document, finding that the creation date of the paper was August 18th.

The paper was created in Microsoft Office 365, according to the metadata, which wasn’t even released for commercial use until 2011. However, Wright claims that this exact paper is from 2007, which would be impossible with this version of Office. This isn’t even the first time that this program has been the pitfall of Wright’s claims.

In July this year, Wright submitted documents as part of the ongoing Kleiman trial, which he claimed to be from a specific date. However, in using a version of the Calibri font, which wasn’t available until 2015, Wright’s choices again were exposed as impossible. McCormack, who is presently being sued by Wright for claiming that he is not Satoshi, tweeted to ponder why Wright is even going after him, when it is clear that the document could not possibly have been created when he said.

McCormack was sued by Wright in April this year, after he refused to agree that Wright is the official creator of Bitcoin. Wright sued Roger Ver, the owner of Bitcoin.com, as well, but the case was dismissed by the UK court for not being relevant.

Even with another self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator in the world, Wright is seemingly working to do everything he can to say that he’s the one and only Satoshi. But, is he?
