    Bitcoin.org says Wright is wrong, refuses to delete ‘his’ Bitcoin Whitepaper

    Self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto Craig Wright’s copyright claim to own the Bitcoin Whitepaper led to the website taunting him to cryptographically prove that he is the real Bitcoin creator

    Lawyers representing the Australian nChain chief scientist have demanded that Bitcoin.org and BitcoinCore.org take down their copies of Satoshi Nakamoto’s Bitcoin whitepaper—claiming that this amounts to copyright infringement.

    Kleiman’s death is at the heart of the $10 billion bitcoin lawsuit that will likely prove once and for all if nChain chief scientist and Bitcoin SV creator Craig Wright is also Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto, as he claims. The vast majority of the cryptocurrency industry considers Wright a liar.

    Did Craig Wright try to commit suicide with a Japanese katana?

    A witness in the ongoing lawsuit over the $10 billion in bitcoin Wright says he mined as Satoshi Nakamoto testified that a failed attempt to prove that claim led to a suicide attempt

    Shortly after the failed BBC demonstration that if successful would have proved Craig Wright is Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto, software developer Gavin Andreson received an email. “All Stop. Craig has just tried to injure himself and is bleeding badly in the washroom,” it read.
