Location Data During Bitcoin’s Initial Genesis Block Show Craig Wright is not Satoshi Nakamoto

Crypto researchers keen with Satoshi’s whereabouts recently uncovered that Craig Wright’s ‘Self-proclaimed Satoshi’ theory is indeed inconsistent with facts.

This was proven by the IP addresses of Craig and Satoshi back in 2009 when the first BTC was mined and transferred. Findings revealed that the two were in fact on different time zones at that time.

Craig gained a controversial position within the blockchain and cryptocurrency space following his claims that he invented Bitcoin. The well-known figure has gained popularity with this theory but it appears that facts may soon prove his claims are untrue. Craig’s alleged location during the first BTC transaction lead to these findings.

At the beginning of April, Wright shared on Medium about his participation in Bitcoin’s creation and gave a detailed outlook of how it ‘began’. The popular figure revealed information on where the nodes were run together with machines and where they were stored.

He added that, he owned a ranch in Bagnoo, Australia, where he had turn a part of his property into a machine operation space. Furthermore, the crypto enthusiast said he run similar operations in his house located on the outskirts of Sydney.

Craig Wright noted in particular that he had travelled back to Bagnoo when BTC’s initial genesis block was created. In addition, on January 9, Craig travelled again having been the initial Bitcoin mining date.

However, based on research, Craig was on the opposite side of the world compared to Satoshi’s location that pinpoints California.

California; Beginning of Satoshi’s Bitcoin?

One of the well-known bounty hunters on twitter’s blockchain and crypto space made this discover back in 2016. The researcher shared through a blog the involved IP addresses for Bitcoin’s very first transaction which happened on 10th January, 2009.

Given that the project involved only Satoshi and Hal Finney on the said date, it therefore was possible to figure out which address was Satoshi’s. This IP address tells that Satoshi’s location during the initial days of Bitcoin was in Van Nuys, California. A popular cryptocurrency researcher who goes by the twitter handle @SeekingSatoshi added that the IP was not related to any TOR exit node or VPN.

He went on to further add that information from initial versions of Bitcoin’s whitepaper show the time zones where Satoshi run his activities at the time. Detailed analysis based on frequency and time concur with the fact that he was based in America and may have been a teacher or student.

So far, nothing shows a correlation of Wright’s position with facts identified as support to Satoshi’s US location back in 2009. However, the controversial figure continues to enjoy a large fan base in crypto with a majority still backing him after these allegations.
