    50 of Satoshi Nakamoto’s bitcoins just moved. Maybe.

    The transfer of $489,000 in BTC from a digital wallet created in February 2009 re-energized speculation about the identity of Bitcoin’s creator, and Craig Wright’s claim to that mantle

    Wright is being sued by Ira Kleiman, the adopted brother of Wright’s late partner, Dave Kleiman, for half of a 1.1 million bitcoin fortune. Those bitcoins are thought to have been mined by Satoshi Nakamoto at the beginning of the first blockchain.

    A #Faketoshi hobbyist walks us through more of the details behind accusations that Craig Wright lied and forged proofs that he is Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto

    The vast majority of the cryptocurrency community thinks Craig Wright is lying when he claims to have invented Bitcoin. This includes luminaries like Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin, Binance exchange CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, and many others who have reacted with rage to the Australian’s claims. That said, when people call Wright a liar, they generally refer to loads of proof without going into detail. So, we decided to dive into what proved to be a very deep pool.

    US Copyright Office says Craig Wright is Satoshi Nakamoto
