Craig Wright News

Craig Wright is one of the most notorious figures in the cryptocurrency industry, as he claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous inventor of Bitcoin (BTC). His claim to Satoshi’s identity quickly spurred an intense reaction throughout the Bitcoin community, with many calling him out as a fraud. 

A self-described polymath, Wright claims to have built the Bitcoin protocol with Dave Kleiman, who, being deceased, is unavailable to attest to this claim. 

Wright has been embroiled in legal battles on two fronts: defamation lawsuits against industry peers who have publicly called him a fraud and an ongoing legal case against the Kleiman estate, which has at stake a crypto fortune worth billions of dollars — with Wright’s claim of being Satoshi right in the center of the case. 

While the Wright v. Kleiman case is still ongoing, with Wright having provided false documentation and evidence throughout the proceedings, he has been heavily involved in the development of Bitcoin SV, a fork of a fork of the Bitcoin network. 

The decision reverses a prior ruling, allowing Craig Wright to appeal a lawsuit claiming copyright to the Bitcoin white paper and database.
