Craig Wright to Claim to be Satoshi Again

He explained that the false information surrounding Bitcoin and blockchain-derived systems made him come out of the shadows
18 February 2019   44

A senior researcher at nChain, Craig Wright, sent the Commission on the US Exchange Commodity Trading (CFTC) introductory information on cryptocurrency mechanics in response to a request from the Office. But even in the official document he did not miss the opportunity to remind everyone that it was he who allegedly was the creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto.

My name is Dr. Craig Wright and under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto I completed a project I started in 1997 that was filed with the Australian government in part under an AusIndustry project registered with the Dept. of Innovation as BlackNet. Ethereum is a poorly designed copy of bitcoin designed with the purpose of completing the promise of smart contracts and scripting that were delivered within bitcoin but which were hobbled by the core developers of bitcoin who sought to enable anonymous transactions to exist within the system. 
 

Craig Wright

"Satoshi"

Earlier in February, the “self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto” announced that he possesses a patent, allegedly capable of restricting the right to issue JPM Coin.

In October 2017, Craig Wright made a mistake confirming that he was not Satoshi Nakamoto.
