‘Bitcoin Inventor’ Craig Wright Basks in Satoshi Glow as Court Date Looms

By CCN Markets: Self-proclaimed bitcoin inventor Craig Wright had his fondest wish come true when the capital city of Colombia formally recognized him as Satoshi Nakamoto. Bogota Grants Craig Wright’s ‘Satoshi’ Wish Officials in Bogota presented Wright with a fancy certificate affirming him as the creator of bitcoin. The events unfolded at the 2019 Expo-Bitcoin International in Bogota, a week-long crypto conference. Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and Jimmy Nguyen, nChain’s CEO, both attended the conference, where they discussed how Latin Americans could use cryptocurrencies to improve their economies. Notably, Wright discussed “bitcoin and the law.” Certificate: Wright Is The post ‘Bitcoin Inventor’ Craig Wright Basks in Satoshi Glow as Court Date Looms appeared first on CCN Markets

Craig Wright Praised as Satoshi Nakamoto by The Council of Bogota

Coinspeaker Craig Wright Praised as Satoshi Nakamoto by The Council of BogotaWhen talking about Colombia, first that gets in almost everyone’s mind is the name of this beautiful sovereign state in South America with rich cultural heritage. Second thing that comes to ones’ mind is, let’s be honest, cocaine.It seems that the latter had pretty much been consumed this week because, guess what – Council of Bogota just accepted Craig Wright as the one and only Satoshi Nakamoto. Wright was attending the Expo-Bitcoin International conference in Bogota which was sponsored by Bitcoin SV proponents. He was invited to speak to Bogota’s Council on the topic of Bitcoin and Law.Introduced to the Council as Satoshi Nakamoto, Wright spoke on how the objective of Bitcoin was to become a government-compliant payment tool and not to promote “anonymous systems, anarchy or destroying the government.”He also said that one of his biggest ambitions was to create a global economy where anyone could own property and purchase anything from anywhere on earth, all in compliance with government laws in their own jurisdictions.We don’t know what was hidden in the drinks at the party afterwards, but it obviously was some good stuff. Wright actually received a special document that recognizes his work in Bitcoin as Satoshi Nakamoto, adding to the earlier patents he’s registered with the U.S. copyright office in that regard.Meanwhile, Craig Wright still has pending court cases in the UK, notably against Bitcoin podcaster Peter McCormack, regarding his claims of being Bitcoin’s creator.The news was twitted by Wright’s proponent Jimmy Nguyen:Muchas gracias Concejo de Bogota. Thank you Bogota Council for having Craig Wright speak today about #Bitcoin and law, and for the nice honor. pic.twitter.com/bsVjrKgJ7t— Jimmy Nguyen (@JimmyWinMedia) June 20, 2019McCormack almost instantly reacted with a tweet:The fucking front of you, slimy little weasel— Peter McCormack (@PeterMcCormack) June 21, 2019And some have even been comparing Wright with the notorious drug cartel boss Pablo Escobar:A cartel country and Craig Wright can go alone very well, they both share the same principles as Pablo Escobar. No wonder they didn't asked for a photo with Las FARC.— Marco SS (@0rakl) June 22, 2019However, we still don’t know what will happen to Wright when he crosses that border once again since he is still on the court with Kleiman family. This week Florida judge Bruce Reinhart had ordered Wright, to disclose his Bitcoin addresses in an ongoing lawsuit filed by the estate of his former business partner, David Kleiman.Ira Kleiman, Dave’s brother accused the Australian entrepreneur of scheming to seize a shared holding of bitcoin the two mined together between 2009 and 2011, as well as Kleiman’s intellectual property. The plaintiff seeks the return of half of a 1.1 million bitcoin stockpile, allegedly held in the “Tulip Trust,” which Wright claimed consolidated bitcoin he mined and purchased between 2009 and 2011.However, Craig didn’t do that so many are seeking for him to be prisoned:Craig Wright hasn’t complied with the court’s order to list his bitcoin as of 12/31/13. He remains under an order to show cause why J. Reinhart shouldn’t issue sanctions under R.37 & order him to appear before J. Bloom to explain why he shouldn’t be held in contempt. @KyleWRoche— Vel Freedman (@VelvelFreedman) June 21, 2019Be it as it may, if anything like this happens, he can always run back to Bogota.Craig Wright Praised as Satoshi Nakamoto by The Council of Bogota

Craig Wright is Satoshi Nakamoto: At Least Among the Council of Bogota

Whether Craig Wright is Satoshi Nakamoto or not will remain a debate for crypto enthusiasts into the foreseeable future, but not for officials of the Council of Bogota who has recognized the Bitcoin SV proponent as the creator of Bitcoin. Wright was attending the Expo-Bitcoin International conference in Bogota which was sponsored by Bitcoin SV proponents. The self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto was invited to speak to Bogota’s Council on the topics of Bitcoin and Law. Craig Wright who was introduced to the Council as Satoshi Nakamoto deliberated on how the objective for Bitcoin was to become a government compliant payment tool and not to promote “anonymous systems, anarchy or destroying the government.” He also highlighted that one of his biggest ambitions was to create a global economy where anyone could own property, and purchase anything from anywhere on earth all in compliance with government laws in their respective jurisdictions. It was after the session with the Council that Craig Wright reportedly received a special document to recognize his work in Bitcoin as Satoshi Nakamoto, adding to the earlier patents he had registered with the U.S copyright office in that respect. Meanwhile, Craig Wright still has pending court cases in the U.K notably against Bitcoin podcaster, Peter McCormack also regarding his claims to be Bitcoin’s creator. BitcoinSV Drops Despite New Recognition On previous occasions, such as the copyright filing last month, Craig Wright’s recognition as Satoshi Nakamoto would have a significant impact on the price of the BitcoinSV cryptocurrency which he is piloting. That, however, is not the case today as the altcoin is marking losses just above 1% despite the rest of the market being in green and Bitcoin looking all but set to reach $10,000 in the next few days. BSV/USD. Source: CoinGecko BitcoinSV’s market cap at the time of writing is $3.9 billion and is trading at $220.

Location Data During Bitcoin’s Initial Genesis Block Show Craig Wright is not Satoshi Nakamoto

Crypto researchers keen with Satoshi’s whereabouts recently uncovered that Craig Wright’s ‘Self-proclaimed Satoshi’ theory is indeed inconsistent with facts. This was proven by the IP addresses of Craig and Satoshi back in 2009 when the first BTC was mined and transferred. Findings revealed that the two were in fact on different time zones at that […]

Amazon Marketplace Sees Two New Books Allegedly Written by Satoshi Nakamoto Himself

New research affirms Craig Wright isn’t Satoshi Nakamoto based off location data

Prominent cryptocurrency researchers joined forces and uncovered compelling evidence that Craig Wright isn’t Satoshi Nakamoto. By comparing Satoshi’s IP address and Wright’s own testimony about his whereabouts at the beginning of 2009, researchers found that the two were at the opposite sides of the globe at the time. Craig Wright unwittingly affirms he is not Satoshi Nakamoto The saga of Craig Wright, one of the most controversial figures in the crypto industry, shows no signs of stopping. And while outrageous claims coming from Wright aren’t exactly news, it now seems that one of his claims will become some of the strongest evidence against him. In a Medium post from Apr. 6, Wright wrote about the start of his alleged involvement with Bitcoin. He wrote, in detail, about the setup he used to run Bitcoin nodes, as well as the number of machines he used and where he kept them. Wright further wrote: “In my ranch that I used to own in Bagnoo, Australia, I converted part of my shed and home to run computers. In my house outside of Sydney, I took my garage and ran racks of machines.” He noted that he traveled to his farm both on Jan. 3, when the genesis block is dated, and on Jan. 9, when the first block was mined. However, previous research has shown that Satoshi Nakamoto‘s location at that time was not in Australia, as Wright’s was, but in California. Old research puts Satoshi Nakamoto in California Twitter user Bounty Hunter, who is widely thought to be the best authority on the matter, was the first one to pinpoint Satoshi Nakamoto’s exact location. In his 2016 blog post, the researcher revealed two IP addresses used to send and receive Bitcoins on Jan. 10, 2009. As the only two people working on the project at that time were Hal Finney, Bitcoin’s earliest contributor, and Satoshi Nakamoto, it was relatively easy to determine which one of those belonged to Satoshi. The IP address showed that, at the time, Satoshi was in Van Nuys, California. SeekingSatoshi, a well-known crypto researcher on Twitter, asserted that the address wasn’t associated with a VPN or a TOR exit node. Satoshi's IP address not assigned to a VPN service 68.164.57.219 is not a Proxy/VPN "This IP address appears to be a normal connection" pic.twitter.com/ZIKRMevk0o — SeekingSatoshi (@jimmy007forsure) June 17, 2019 As the researcher pointed out, metadata from various versions of the Bitcoin Whitepaper has revealed the timezone in which Satoshi Nakamoto operated. Analysis of the times and frequency of his online activity revealed that he was living in the U.S., and could have been either a student or a teacher. Metadata from various versions of the Bitcoin whitepaper reveal timezones. Analysis of the timezones/times/dates/frequency of his online activity reveal more info. -700 UTC, -600 UTC, -500 UTCOnline activity suggests a student or teacherLiving in the USA – Not Australia — SeekingSatoshi (@jimmy007forsure) June 17, 2019 There is currently no evidence that suggests Wright traveled to the U.S. at the time when Satoshi was active online. However, none of this was apparently enough to convince his legion of fans, many of whom have commented on SeekingSatoshi’s thread disputing his findings. As of June, 2019, none of you knows if Craig is or isn't Satoshi. That's where this is at. And i don't know, either. — christopher helweg (@christo85303622) June 17, 2019 The post New research affirms Craig Wright isn’t Satoshi Nakamoto based off location data appeared first on CryptoSlate.

Coin Source Will Bring Dai to Its ATM Users

Stable currencies are all the rage as of late, primarily because they aren’t prone to the price swings and volatility one often witnesses with mainstream digital assets such as Ethereum and Litecoin. If you want to invest in crypto but are nervous about the prospects, stable currencies could be the answer. Now, they’re earning an even larger boost through companies like Coin Source, a Texas-based operator of cryptocurrency ATMs. Coin Source Brings Stability to Crypto The venture recently announced that it would be adding the stable asset Dai to its many ATMs located throughout the southern United States this summer. The addition of the coin is “in preparation” for what the company calls a widespread remittance program, in which workers will be able to send money home to their families in the form of Dai or other cryptocurrencies that they can trade or sell. Travis Gough, chief product officer at Coin Source, comments: In remittances, people want to save as much value and they don’t want to be subjected to the high volatility that you’re seeing in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that can be very speculative. Price swings are a persistent worry in the crypto space, and likely never to leave enthusiasts’ minds fully. At the same time, it’s easy to suggest that currencies like bitcoin are suddenly easier to accept given these swings are now traveling north. Since April of this year, bitcoin has been enjoying a serious bull run, having jumped by nearly 200 percent in just the last three months alone. After a lengthy period of traveling through the doldrums at the mid-$3,000 range, the currency began its new string of price spikes last April with a sudden (and unexpected) jump to $5,000. The good news this time around is that bitcoin’s sudden behavior is likely being sparked more by market trends, which will make this bull run more stable than the one that occurred in 2017, reportedly the subject of manipulation by users of the stable currency tether. Along with bitcoin, currencies like Litecoin have also surged in price, heightening the crypto space’s present levels of legitimacy. A New and Improved Way to Send Money The Coin Source remittance service – which will at first be available to customers only in the United States – will allow ATMs to transfer Dai and other digital assets between wallets. Once a customer receives funds, they can forward them to the wallets of selected parties granted those parties have satisfied all of Coin Source’s know-your-customer (KYC) requirements. Receiving individuals can then confirm the funds and trade or sell them accordingly. All transactions occurring by way of Coin Source are recorded onto the Ethereum blockchain. At press time, the company operates more than 230 ATMs in nearly 30 states and in Washington D.C. The post Coin Source Will Bring Dai to Its ATM Users appeared first on Live Bitcoin News.
