Court Told Bitcoin Invention Claim ‘Brazen Lie’ in Craig Wright Trial

Australian computer scientist, Craig Wright, claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto. This claim has been challenged by the Crypto Patent Alliance in the UK High Court in an attempt to prevent Wright from creating more blockchain patents.

Craig Wright is currently embroiled in a battle with the Crypto Patent Alliance (Copa) over claims that he is the one, the only, Satoshi. The legal tussle, taking place in the United Kingdom High Court, is intended to reduce the number of litigations that have resulted due to the crypto industry’s somewhat loose regulations. Wright is a major contributor to these, as he has a penchant for taking legal action against anyone who suggests that he isn’t actually Satoshi Nakamoto.

Unfortunately for Craig, the evidence against him appears to be piling up (pls don’t sue me):

  • Copa’s attorney stated that Wright claiming to be Nakamoto is a “brazen lie and elaborate false narrative supported by forgery on an industrial scale”.
  • He went on to say that “Dr Wright has consistently failed to supply genuine proof of his claim to be Satoshi: instead he has repeatedly proffered documents which bear clear signs of having been doctored”.
  • In fact, Wright was accused of using ChatGPT to generate several documents which supposedly prove he is Nakamoto.
  • The original Bitcoin whitepaper was written on OpenOffice. However, Wright’s version was written on a program called LaTeX.
  • Additionally, Wright has never been able to produce the private keys attached to Satoshi’s original Bitcoin wallet, worth something like AUD $60B as of today.
