Grant Cardone: “Craig Wright Is Trying To Lay An Unlawful Claim On My $1M Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Bounty”
- Cardone recently issued a $1 million bounty for the “real” Satoshi Nakamoto to come speak at his upcoming conference in Las Vegas.
- Craig Wright recently came forth and stated that he is entitled to the above stated reward (since he is the one who created BTC.)
Ever since Dr. Craig S. Wright claimed to be the pseudonymous creator of the world’s most sought after cryptocurrency back in 2013, he has constantly been on the offensive against anyone who seems to think otherwise.
For example, as reported by Bitcoinexchangeguide earlier, Grant Cardone — a well known entrepreneur and crypto enthusiast — recently issued a bounty wherein he stated that real Satoshi Nakamoto would be paid a million dollars by him if he were to attend his upcoming conference (10X Growth Conference).
As was to be expected, as soon as Wright got wind of this, he immediately approached Cardone and tried to stake his claim on the bounty.
Craig Wright is attempting to claim my $1,000,000 offer I made to Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, to speak at the upcoming 10X Growth Conference in Vegas. Thoughts?

In regards to this entire development, Grant was recently quoted as saying:
“I’m happy to write a check to ‘the real Satoshi Nakamoto’ to speak at the 10X Growth Conference where 10X entrepreneurs, business owners, marketers, and blockchain developers will gather”
However, there still exist a lot of questions that still need to be answered in relation to Grant’s aforementioned statement:
How would he validate whether the person claiming to be Satoshi is really telling the truth or not?
How Will The Payment Scheme Actually Work?
If the money is not actually going to be paid to someone, is this all just a major publicity stunt?
And while Cardone seems to be interested in giving Wright a fair listen, the fact that all of this madness is happening just before the commencement of his upcoming conference, seems quite dodgy to say the least. Lastly, as was to be expected, the crypto community at large has not been too happy about all this, with Casa CTO ‘Jameson Lopp’ recently quipping:
“Don’t accept anything short of publicly verifiable cryptographic proof and you’ll be fine.”
Other Details Worth Pointing Out
A number of media outlets have reported over the years that Wright’s claim of being Satoshi Nakamoto are false and don't have any real substance to back them up.
In the past, Wright has been accused of falsifying documents in court to obtain favourable judgements. As things stand, Wright does not have access to the BTC reserves he has been claiming to own for years.
