Craig Wright In An Official Statement To CFTC Says He Is Satoshi Nakamoto

I am a freelance writer, Poet, blogger and cryptoenthusiast that is totally interested in blockchain technology and sharing it's Information with others.

Through a recently filed official statement to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission [CFTC], the controversial Australian Crypto developer claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto. The filing means he is officially willing to swear under an oath that he is Satoshi Nakamoto.

Craig Wright’s Revelation

In response to the request of the CFTC for information about asset mechanics and markets on its official website, Craig Wright stated that he is the real Satoshi Nakamoto. This was picked up by Reddit members and CNBC’s Ran Neuner.

Craig noted that he had started the BTC project since 1997 and the Australian government apparently supported it. He also stated fraud prevention efforts motivated the project. Craig further claimed that there is a lot of misinformation about him and he criticised the ICO market as being designed primarily for scams.

Recently, Craig was involved in the hard fork of Bitcoin Cash’s blockchain to create Bitcoin Cash SV (Satoshi Vision). The recent claim is not the first time he will be claiming to be  Satoshi Nakamoto. Craig had claimed, with evidence in the past that he is the real Nakamoto. However, this has been debunked over time.

The recent claim has also been met with more doubts from the crypto community. A tweeter user responded to Craig’s tweet saying; “We are all Satoshi. Except for Craig Wright.”

One Too Many Satoshis’

Recently, Amaury Sechet, the self-described “benevolent dictator” of the Bitcoin ABC (primary) implementation of BCH, claimed he is also Satoshi Nakamoto. His claim was greeted with doubts and rejections like the previous claim by Craig Wright.

Who’s The Real Satoshi

Satoshi Nakamoto is the name used by the unknown person or people who developed Bitcoin, authored the bitcoin white paper, and created and deployed bitcoin’s original reference implementation. His nationality is claimed to be Japanese by some, and American by others.

Unveiling the identity of the real Satoshi Nakamoto has been a concern for the crypto community, despite the claims of some to be the real Nakamoto.

The identity of the creator of the top valued cryptocurrency, Bitcoin has been shrouded in secrecy since it was created over ten years ago. Attempts at unravelling the identity of the real Nakamoto has made some in the crypto space to employ the service of a private detective. However, their effort is yet to be productive.
