Financial Times: ‘Dr No You Aren’t’

“The longest-running mystery in crypto is who is Satoshi Nakamoto, the author of the 2008 white paper that laid the foundations of bitcoin.

For years Craig Wright, an Australian computer scientist, has claimed he is bitcoin’s creator. In London the Crypto Open Patent Alliance, a group that is backed by Coinbase and Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, sued him to stop making the claims.

This week the judge ruled in Copa’s favour. As the Guardian newspaper noted, in a highly unusual move the judge issued the verdict within seconds of the case concluding. The evidence is “overwhelming”, the judge said.

“First, Dr Wright is not the author of the Bitcoin White Paper. Second, Dr Wright is not the person who adopted or operated under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto in the period 2008 to 2011. Third, Dr Wright is not the person who created the Bitcoin System. And, fourth, he is not the author of the initial versions of the Bitcoin software.””
