Craig Wright has claimed multiple times that he indeed is Satoshi Nakamoto himself only to get proven as a liar again and again. Earlier this year, he was knocked down by perjury and forgery in the courts for statements the judge has found to be untrue as well as his lack of straight answers regarding the “Tulip Trusts”
Proving he is Satoshi is extremely simple, he simply needs to sign a transaction from one of his alleged addresses and prove ownership. However, as the time for him to prove so came a new excuse surfaced: the Tulip Trusts.
The private keys to the addresses are kept in an encrypted trust to which he does not have the keys at the moment but he did produce the list of addresses that were his.
2009 Miner speaks up
Out of the thousands of addresses provided, multiple were actually owned by the now gone exchange Mt Gox and Roger Ver. Today a new 2009 miner spoke and proved that 145 of these addresses included in the trust are not Dr Wright’s ownership.
The miner used his private keys to share the following message: “Craig Steven Wright is a liar and a fraud. He doesn’t have the keys used to sign this message. The Lightning Network is a significant achievement. However, we need to continue work on improving on-chain capacity. Unfortunately, the solution is not to just change a constant in the code or to allow powerful participants to force out others. We are all Satoshi”.
Many have speculated that Satoshi must be dead because he has not moved any of his coins in over a decade. This statement was completely negated as a person sitting on close to $60 million from early mined Bitcoins showed his “HODL”ing strength.
