A message signed by 145 wallets containing Bitcoin (BTC) mined in its early years calls Craig Wright a „liar and a fraud“.
The message was published on May 25 with a list of 145 addresses and their corresponding signatures. This seems to show that the addresses actually belong to the person spreading the message. This one says:
„Craig Steven Wright is a liar and a fraud. He does not have the keys used to sign this message. The Lightning Network is a significant achievement. However, we need to continue working to improve the capacity of the network. Unfortunately, the solution is not just to change a constant in the code or to allow powerful participants to force others.
Craig Wright can now open „Satoshi“, the file encrypted with over 800,000 BTC
Notably, Cointelegraph was able to verify that at least some of the addresses are on the list of thousands claimed by Craig Wright in the case against Ira Kleiman.
Wright has repeatedly failed to produce evidence of ownership of the alleged fortune of Satoshi Nakamoto, who is believed to have mined over a million BTCs.
An easy way to do this is to sign a message with the Bitcoin Profit / Bitcoin Revolution / Bitcoin Trader / Bitcoin Era / Bitcoin Billionaire / Bitcoin Code / Bitcoin Evolution / Immediate Edge / The News Spy / Bitcoin Circuit private key of the purse in question, which can be verified with the public key.
Because Wright tried to avoid every opportunity to conclusively prove ownership of what he claims is his, many in the community doubt that he owns those Bitcoins, and therefore that he is Satoshi Nakamoto.
Did Satoshi-san just move Craig Wright’s Bitcoins?
This is a message from Satoshi?
The signed message has some similarity to a message from 2015 from Satoshi’s email address, which says „I’m not Craig Wright. We are all Satoshi.“
While the first part of the new statement takes up the same concept, the message expresses an opinion on the debates that plagued Bitcoin before Bitcoin Cash (BCH) became its own network.
The blocks mined by this unknown fall outside the pattern of Patoshi, which is the basis for the claim that Satoshi mined more than 1 million BTC. However, there is no absolute certainty to identify which blocks are Satoshi’s and which are not. It seems likely that the similarity is a tribute to Satoshi’s alleged message.
The early Bitcoin miner seems to have a position somewhere in between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash. While he praises the Lightning Network, he also argues for more capacity in the chain. However, he doesn’t believe that increasing the size of the block, or „changing a constant in the code“ is the solution.
This is the second time in less than a week that an early miner suddenly showed activity.
