Facts About Craig S. Wright, the Man Claiming to be Satoshi Nakamoto, or ‘Faketoshi’ as Crypto Twitter Calls Him
Most of the investors and crypto enthusiasts already know who is Craig S. Wright, the chief scientist a nChain and a figure in the crypto market. He has been a very controversial figure in the last years after participating in many different cryptocurrency projects in the market.
Perhaps, one of the most interesting things about him is that he claims that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin (BTC). However, these claims have been questioned several times.
One of the things that most people do not know is that he was in jail in 2004. According to Crypto Potato, he was convicted of contempt of court by the Supreme Court of New South Wales. He breached an injunction that prevented him from approaching customers of DeMorgan Information Security Systems. Due to the fact that he performed 250 hours of community service he only spent a few days in prison.
He studied computer science at Charles Sturt University in Australia and he claimed that he received a Ph.D. and a doctorate in theology, comparative religious and classical studies. Nevertheless, he didn’t provide information regarding where he studied at and the CSU informed that he received master’s degrees rather than a doctorate. Finally, in February 2017, he was awarded a doctorate from the CSU.
An important thing about him is that he is an IT expert. He has been working in many different projects, including one of the first casinos online in the world. He has also gained experience after working in several companies.
The Satoshi Nakamoto issue is something on which the market does not have a clear position. The anonymous creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto has never provided information about who he really is. Several individuals have been targeted as Satoshi Nakamoto, but just Craig said that he is Mr. Nakamoto himself.
After being inactive for several months, when his email got hacked, he returned claiming that he was Satoshi Nakamoto. Nevertheless, he didn’t prove his claims, even when he attempted to release crypto keys that were the ones created when Bitcoin was introduced.
One of the main questions that several analysts and crypto experts ask is why being Satoshi Nakamoto and opposed to Bitcoin (BTC), he did not sell all the BTC he had stored and purchased Bitcoin Cash (BCH) or Bitcoin SV (BSV).
Although there were some proofs against him showing that he was not Satoshi Nakamoto, he did not accept that he was not Satoshi, he continued claiming that he is Bitcoin’s founder.
Bitcoin Satoshi Vision is currently the project in which Mr. Wright is working on full time. The digital currency split from the BCH network back in November 2014 and since that moment it is operating in the market. At the time of writing this article, BSV is the 11th largest digital asset in the market and it has a market cap of $1.2 billion. Each BSV coin can be purchased for $68.29.
