Craig Wright Calls Himself Satoshi Nakamoto In Letter To CFTC
Craig Wright, a researcher at nChain, stated that he should be considered Satoshi Nakamoto, the developer of bitcoin, in response to a letter from the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The message is published on the website of the department.
The Commission sent a request to Wright asking for a detailed explanation of the cryptocurrency mechanics. The employee of nChain provided information and wrote that he began developing the first cryptocurrency at the end of the last century, taking the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.
According to him, he had to hide his second name for a long time, and a large amount of false information around bitcoin and derived blockchain systems forced him to open up.
The developed system was aimed at eradicating fraudulent schemes, Wright stated. However, the incompetence of many individuals regarding blockchain, in his opinion, led to the emergence of false information and fake ICO projects.
However, Wright did not stop there. He wrote that the Ethereum network is basically a poorly executed copy of Bitcoin. According to him, Ethereum has already reached its limit, this network is used exclusively by unscrupulous firms, thereby deceiving the members of the crypto community who do not possess sufficient technical information.
This was not the first time the employee of nChain called himself the creator of bitcoin, but he failed to provide direct evidence.
The last time information about the activity of Satoshi Nakamoto appeared in early December 2018. In the account of the online portal P2P Foundation, the alleged creator of the first cryptocurrency published a post and added to the list of friends one of the users.
