Bitcoin Addresses Craig Wright Claims To Own Have Termed Him ‘A Liar And A Fraud’ ⋆ ZyCrypto
While most of the crypto industry already dismisses Craig Wright as disingenuous, there is now more evidence to prove that the Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) forerunner is being deliberately fraudulent. A publication from wallets containing Bitcoin mined in its first few years has called Wright a liar.
According to a May 25 publication from 145 early addresses, Craig Wright is not in possession of the keys to the addresses he had earlier claimed to own. The publication listed the addresses including signatures signed with their corresponding private keys. According to the message:
“Craig Steven Wright is a liar and a fraud. He doesn’t have the keys used to sign this message. The Lightning Network is a significant achievement. However, we need to continue work on improving on-chain capacity. Unfortunately, the solution is not to just change a constant in the code or to allow powerful participants to force out others.”
The anonymous message ends with an assurance that “we are all Satoshi”, enforcing the privacy and anonymity characteristic of the blockchain.
Craig Wright is infamous for repeatedly claiming to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the unknown Bitcoin creator. While he has never been able to prove this decisively, Wright has previously threatened legal action against people who have called the bluff on his claim.
Wright has been at the center of a lawsuit with the Kleiman estate, over Bitcoins mined with former partner David Kleiman. He had previously submitted a list of addresses – including some of the 145 – he claimed were in the Tulip Trust. The message published by the 145 addresses is now conclusive proof that Wright lied.
Popular software engineer and crypto advocate Jameson Lopp has also taken to Twitter to announce that the blocks do not match the Patoshi Pattern, referring to the pattern of addresses originating from the Satoshi Era of Bitcoin.
