Bitcoin’s original whitepaper has now become a subject of ownership competition. After Craig Wright’s mischievous step of claiming copyright on it now a Chinese man called Wei Liu has also done the same. Liu has also filed a copyright claim for the original Bitcoin whitepaper in same US Copyrights Office, and though we don’t know much else about him, it’s a development which has brought an interesting twist to this Craig-Faketoshi saga.Wei Liu is a Chinese citizen currently residing in California, US. In his filing he has claimed that it was he who published the original BTC whitepaper on 11th of Jan, 2008 under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. Now, nobody knew about him before this development, so people tried to figure out the reasoning behind his claim. And when someone from Decrypt contacted him regarding the same, here’s what he had to say:“I filed it just to let people know anyone can register a copyright. Everyone can be Satoshi Nakamoto. Now we can both show our credentials and see who ends up wearing an orange suit!”Digging further into his profile revealed that he is more than a cryptocurrency trader. He is a crypto entrepreneur, and he has also had the privilege of running a Bitcoin mining pool called F2Pool in 2011. One of his retweets also suggests that he decided to file this copyright claim on 24th of May after some Craig supporters tried to mislead everyone by stating that “only CSW can register a copyright, no one else can”.And clearly, here we’re seeing that everyone can. CSW is still far from cementing himself as Satoshi Nakamoto.
