The US Copyright Office said they did not recognize Craig Wright as the creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto. This is stated in the press release departments.

The Office decided to clarify the decision-making process, as well as the limits of the competence of the agency. In a statement, the organization says that it does not recognize the authorship of something, but primarily protects creators of art objects, who themselves take responsibility for the claims filed.

As a general rule, when the Copyright Office receives an application for registration, the claimant certifies as to the truth of the statements made in the submitted materials. The Copyright Office does not investigate the truth of any statement made. In a case in which a work is registered under a pseudonym, the Copyright Office does not investigate whether there is a provable connection between the claimant and the pseudonymous author.

The Office went to such clarifications in response to the actions of Craig Wright, who prepared the press release, according to which the US authorities officially recognized him as the creator of Bitcoin.

The Bitfinex cryptocurrency exchange has entered into a partnership with the service of replenishing mobile accounts and gift certificates Bitrefill.

Using Lightning Network (LN) technology, Bitfinex users will be able to purchase products from the Bitrefill catalog, which includes more than 2,000 digital gift cards and options for replenishing mobile accounts.

As soon as the user pays for the goods using Bitcoin, Bitfinex and Bitrefill automatically settle through the LN network, which makes transactions cheaper and much faster.
