Marco Santori, one of the most famous and influential lawyers in the crypto-currency industry, was appointed the new president and director of the legal department of the British company Blockchain Info, reports CoinDesk.

Blockchain co-founder Nicholas Carey, who previously served as president, will now serve as vice president and will focus on public relations, while Santori will focus on developing further policies and expanding the company.

Marco Santori is known as one of the early advocates of the cryptocurrency industry and provided advisory services to various start-ups in the past. Since November 2016, he served as a partner of the law firm Cooley LLP, where his main focus was on work in the field of corporate blockchain, and later in the ICO sphere.

Working in Cooley LLP, Santory became one of the co-authors of the so-called SAFT concept - a compromise model of raising funds compatible with the legal norms of the stock market, tax laws and the financial services industry in the United States.

However, he himself stresses that his heart always belonged to the bitcoin and its potential in terms of transferring power to the hands of ordinary people.

I’m honored and thrilled to join Blockchain, the leading provider for digital asset software. It’s a compelling opportunity to contribute to a company that is not only achieving unparalleled business success, but also delivering on a powerful mission to create an inclusive financial system from which everyone can benefit.

As Peter Smith, CEO of Blockchain, noted, Santory will play a strategic role in helping the company meet the growing demand for services. It is about scaling not only legal and regulatory functions, but also corporate development, including acquisitions and new partnerships. 

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.

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.
