If anything, we can say that characterizes the crypto world is its diversity. Within the community of users of the cryptocurrencies you can find all kind of people. Lovers of privacy, technology, anarchist or statist, all have a place in the Blockchain. And it shows when Craig Wright, who claims to be the creator of Bitcoin, is threatening to sue to Bitcoin and Bitcoin to Cash.
Who is Craig Wright?
In the first place, we must explain who is Craig Wright, the entrepreneur from australia who was allegedly behind the threats against Bitcoin. And is that Wright is a computer scientist and entrepreneur australian, which in recent years has created a number of ventures related to the crypto world. However, Wright rose to fame up to the year 2015, when two investigations conducted in parallel by Gizmodo and Wired, pointed to Wright as a possible creator of Bitcoin. That does not mean that there were not suspicions, that the whole affair was an elaborate hoax by Craig Wright. Since then, Wright has said on several occasions that he would be Satoshi Nakamoto. Affirming further that the creation of Bitcoin was a joint effort involving Hal Finney and Dave Kleiman. But, until today, has not been able to provide any proof that supports your claim.
A threat to the crypto community
Despite the lack of evidence about the identity of Craig Wright as Satoshi Nakamoto. Now Wright would be threatening to the crypto community with a lawsuit against Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, by the use of the database of Bitcoin without having the right to do so. According to Craig Wright, this database would be protected by the Patents Act, Copyright and Designs act 1988 and the Regulations of Data Bases, 1977. So that the same can be considered a personal property of Wright, and its use without your authorization a crime. “As the creator of Bitcoin, I keep the sui generis rights of any copy of the database created from Genesis in January 2009. I’m not going to give up the property. The licenciaré, and I have already participated in a process,” said Craig Wright on your claim. The statements of Wright, however, does not seem to cause great concern within the crypto community. Therefore, although the same may have any legal basis in the event that it proves to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto. Until today, Wright has been unable to deliver a single piece of proof that point to his identity as the creator of Bitcoin. Therefore, it is unlikely that this time can make claims of some sort on the creation of Nakamoto. The following two tabs change content below.
