Monero’s Leader Riccardo Spagni Calls Out The Integrity Of Craig Wright’s Legal Credibility
Riccardo Spagni Calls The Integrity Of Craig Wright Into Question
Ever since nChain's Chief Scientist, Craig Wright, crowned himself Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, he has been the target of all manner of attack especially from within the crypto community. Though his claims were vehemently opposed by lots of crypto enthusiasts, it didn't stop him from filing a copyright for the Bitcoin whitepaper, an action that didn't sit right with many.
Riccardo Spagni Says Craig Wright Is Thick In The Head
Craig Wright has constantly been attacked for his actions and the latest to have a go at him is Riccardo Spagni, Montero's lead developer. Spagni had this to say in his latest tweet:
“PSA: Craig Wright is so dumb he made it illegal to run Bitcoin SV test net using the Bitcoin SV code when he illegally re-licensed it. He claims to be a lawyer, but fails to get something this simple correct…?”
Once Spagni’s tweet went viral, it seemed to resonate with what majority of the crypto community already thought of Wright. In fact, his tweet soon turned Wright into a laughing stock as many tweeter users started hashtags like #CraigWrightissodumb. Satoshi MeowMotonaut, a tweeter user sent this tweet:
“Are we playing #CraigWrightissodumb? My entry “Craig Wright is so dumb that he sued a cartoon character on twitter”
Which was responded to by @amritha, a Bitcoin enthusiast, saying,
“… And then called the owner of Twitter a criminal for liking alt-coins and was banned for life from the platform, resigned to writing articles to himself on Medium.”
Britto: A Filed Copyright Does Not Automatically Authenticate Ones Claims
What can best be described as fear enveloped the crypto community immediately the copyright was filed, but it didn't end there. In what seemed like a beautiful twist, Coincenter's Executive Director, Jerry Britto provided information that helped to calm the triggered nerves of crypto community members.
Britto explained that the legitimacy of a claim is not made certain by simply filing a copyright. After the filing, the copyright office goes through the clauses in the copyright document to find out if they are true or not and only if this process comes out clean, then will Craig Wright be awarded the title of ‘Bitcoin creator.’
Britto further stated that sadly there is no known avenue to challenge a registration officially. If there exist competing claims, the office will have no choice to register them all. What this means is that another person could appear today with his or her own claim of being the author of Bitcoin whitepaper and their registration will be accepted by the office. It will then be left for Wright to file a suit against such an individual and the court will be left to decide who gets what.
