Craig Wright Is Not The Inventor of Bitcoin, Judge Rules


In a landmark ruling, a judge at London’s High Court declared that Craig Wright, the Australian ‘computer scientist’ who has long claimed to be the elusive creator of Bitcoin, is not Satoshi Nakamoto. This decision came following a legal confrontation with the Crypto Open Patent Alliance (COPA), seeking to prevent Wright from suing bitcoin developers and requesting a ruling affirming that he is not Satoshi.

Judge James Mellor delivered the verdict on Thursday, asserting that Wright is not the pseudonymous inventor of the first and original cryptocurrency. The judge promised to provide detailed reasons for his decision at a later date.

The trial unfolded amidst ongoing legal battles between Wright and COPA, with Wright issuing a settlement offer to the alliance and other involved parties. In his proposal, Wright offered to waive his purported database rights and copyrights related to Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Bitcoin ABC (ABC) databases. However, COPA rejected the offer, emphasizing that it would imply acceptance of Wright’s self-proclaimed identity as Satoshi Nakamoto.

Moreover, COPA presented new forensic evidence during the trial to discredit Wright’s claim, including the discovery of a Chat GPT forgery by Wright, suggesting that the evidence he presented was fabricated. Despite Wright’s persistent assertions, COPA remains steadfast in its position against recognizing him as Satoshi Nakamoto.

Last night, COPA detailed more reasons why Craig Wright cannot be Satoshi Nakamoto. “These points come in addition to a large number of arguments focusing on Wright’s fraud and forgeries ‘on an industrial scale’,” COPA stated.
