Judge Rules Craig Wright is Not the Inventor of Bitcoin

In a groundbreaking ruling that has sent shockwaves through the cryptocurrency community, a judge at London’s High Court has officially declared that Craig Wright, the Australian self-proclaimed ‘computer scientist’ who has long asserted himself as the mysterious creator of Bitcoin, is not, in fact, Satoshi Nakamoto.

The verdict came as a result of a legal battle between Wright and the Crypto Open Patent Alliance (COPA), who sought to prevent Wright from suing bitcoin developers and to obtain a ruling confirming that he is not the true identity behind the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.

Judge James Mellor delivered the decisive ruling on Thursday, stating that the evidence presented overwhelmingly proves that Wright is not the author of the Bitcoin whitepaper, nor is he the creator of Bitcoin or the author of the Bitcoin software. Mellor promised to provide detailed reasons for his decision at a later date.

The trial unfolded amidst ongoing legal disputes between Wright and COPA, with Wright offering a settlement to the alliance and other involved parties. In his proposal, Wright offered to relinquish his alleged database rights and copyrights related to Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Bitcoin ABC databases. However, COPA rejected the offer, asserting that accepting it would imply recognition of Wright’s self-proclaimed identity as Satoshi Nakamoto.

During the trial, COPA presented new forensic evidence to discredit Wright’s claims, including the discovery of a Chat GPT forgery by Wright, suggesting that the evidence he presented was fabricated. Despite Wright’s persistent claims, COPA remains resolute in its stance against acknowledging him as Satoshi Nakamoto.

In a statement released by COPA, they outlined “12 reasons why Craig Wright is not Satoshi Nakamoto,” highlighting the numerous instances of fraud and forgery allegedly committed by Wright on a large scale.

The ruling has significant implications for the cryptocurrency community, as the true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto has long been a topic of speculation and intrigue. With this verdict, the debate surrounding Craig Wright’s claims to be the elusive creator of Bitcoin has been put to rest, at least in the eyes of the London High Court. The detailed reasoning behind the judge’s decision is eagerly awaited by many in the crypto world.
