06 March 2018   1356

Developers of Electrum have released version 3.1 of the popular bitcoin-wallet.

Version 3.1 includes a number of innovations. Among the main of them - the calculation of commission based on the current data of the mempool. With this option, users will be able to set transaction commissions that will be directed to the desired depth in the mempool, giving priority to faster or slower transaction confirmation.

Also so-called local transactions appeared in the new version. This function will save transactions that have not been translated into the wallet file and use their output for future transactions.

The release also includes a number of other new features and enhancements, including the ability to encrypt wallets "for tracking" (watch only) and hardware wallets.

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

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


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.
