I Am Satoshi: Craig Wright Tells CFTC

19 Feb 2019

Craig Wright is a gift to cryptocurrency community that keeps on giving. It wouldn’t be as much fun, if every other month, Dr. Wright did not reiterate his stance that he is indeed Satoshi Nakamoto, the founder of bitcoin.However, not satisfied with perpetuating the fraud to just the community, Wright has told the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) that he is indeed the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. The comment was posted on February 15.In a comment which is available on the official website of the CFTC, Wright states, “My name is Dr. Craig Wright and under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto I completed a project I started in 1997 that was filed with the Australian government in part under an AusIndustry project registered with the Dept. of Innovation as BlackNet.”He added, “The amount of misunderstanding and fallacious information that has been propagated concerning bitcoin and any derivative system based on a blockchain (such as and including Ethereum) has resulted in my choice to start to become more public. The system I created was designed in part to end fraud as best as that can be done with any technology. The lack of understanding about the functioning of blockchains has resulted in widespread misinformation and a dissemination of old scams. Many of the former USENET and web IPOs scams have been propagated with the re-badging as an ICO.”Ran Neu-Ner, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Onchain Capital, a crypto investment and advisory business, said, “So Dr. Craig Wright is willing to testify under oath that he is Satoshi Nakamoto and the founder of Bitcoin.”So Dr. Craig Wright is willing to testify under oath that he is Satoshi Nakamoto and the founder of Bitcoin. pic.twitter.com/WsqHhXnQzl— Ran NeuNer (@cryptomanran) February 17, 2019A Twitter user said, “Yes, I knew something was up when @ProfFaustus Craig Wright tweeted on 2/8/19 this pic of his (home) office with this GIANT CLUE written on the white board stating “CFTC…Response by 8th Friday”. Apparently, this response had been in the offing for quite sometime.Yes, it is round and it has whiskey pic.twitter.com/ljeg6iDDDW— Dr Craig S Wright (@ProfFaustus) February 8, 2019Earlier, Craig Wright had generated a lot of buzz in the community when he claimed to be Nakamoto.  It was later proved that he was just a fraud.
