A new individual claims that he is the real Satoshi Nakamoto. Back on February 8, the chief executive of nChain, Craig S. Wright, wrote a blog post in which he described his experience of creating Bitcoin (BTC).
In this post, Wright talks about the different problems he had in order to create Bitcoin. Nevertheless, there was a comment in which a person claims to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto calling Wright a liar.
Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
This is a very interesting question and perhaps the most important one for the cryptocurrency market. After more than ten years of Bitcoin being developed in the market, there is no information regarding who created this virtual currency that revolutionized the world.
It is strange for an individual to claim that it is Satoshi Nakamoto without clearly proving it. There have been several people claiming to be the creator of Bitcoin but none of them was able to provide clear information about it.
One of the most famous self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto is Craig Wright, who has been involved in different projects related to Bitcoin and virtual currencies.
He wrote an article called “Careful what you whish for…” in which he writes about the days when he invented the protocol behind Bitcoin. Wright said that he does not need to prove that he is Satoshi Nakamoto and he attacked Ross Ulbricht, the Silk Road founder, and Julian Assange, from Wikileaks.
The comment on his post claiming to be Satoshi Nakamoto reads as follows:
“Liar – You, Dr. Craig Wright never had any digital key to sign, and no single proof of his claims – He could not even transact one bitcoin from my whale wallet. He did create an altcoin, BSV; then begged to convert Bitcoin core into his crapcoin – Come on, you have nothing. You do not even know how I composed the genesis block and what I coded inside additionally.”
He went on saying that he remembers when Craig tried to “trick” him and asked for a subkey. Additionally, he mentioned that Hal warned him about Craig. He then said that Craig was addicted to the dark world and the flattering of ego.
This individual that claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto has 2,800 followers and he has tweeted publicly around 1,700 times. In some tweets he wrote, he says that he is the real Satoshi Nakamoto and that he will be proving it in seven years.
In a recent article released by News.Bitcoin.Com, they show that the PGP key published by this Twitter user 0x5EC948A1 shows that there are very interesting data and fingerprints related to the email address [email protected]
The individual claiming to be Satoshi Nakamoto said that he left the project because of safety reasons and also to protect the whole Bitcoin community. He said that a decentralized system needs no controllers and rulers. Additionally, this user is linked to the Reddit account “nihsotas” and has been involved in several discussions regarding Bitcoin.
Craig Wright has recently submitted an open letter to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) related to the regulation of tokens and also the Ethereum network. Wright was willing to testify under oath that he was the creator of Bitcoin.
At the moment, it is very difficult to prove who the real Satoshi Nakamoto is. Users and the community as a whole are waiting for Bitcoin’s creator to show Satoshi’s early keys. The cryptocurrency community does not believe any individual if they do not show these keys.
