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.

Venezuelans to be Able to Send BTC Offline

Local developers are creating two device in the framework of the Locha project - Bitcoin mesh network, based on radio
22 January 2020   304

In Venezuela, the development team is preparing a Locha solution that will allow Bitcoin operations without connecting to the Internet.

The solution is a mesh network. The developers are also working on two devices that will allow you to connect to the Bitcoin blockchain using long-range radio waves.

The first, dubbed Turpial, is a simpler version of a radio transmitter that works at distances of one to two kilometers in urban areas. The second, Harpia, is a limited radio module for small computers.

Both devices are portable and run on battery power.

It is reported that in the future the solution can be integrated with any other blockchain, as well as messaging and file transfer systems such as IPFS.

We are making something for the situations where you don't have Internet at all, either due to lack of infrastructure, targeted censorship or in case you want to be completed anonymous so you don't want to expose your home/phone IP address that is linked to your identity.

He also explained that the network would not necessarily rely on nodes connected to the Internet via a landline telephone. Users with satellite dishes can also act as gateways and relay data.

It is expected that the development of devices will be completed by the second quarter of 2020. However, how much time will be required for their further production is still unknown.

Locha will be an open source project so that developers can use it in the future to create similar solutions.
