Craig Wright Is Not Satoshi Nakamoto

NOIDA ( — A UK High Court judge has categorically rejected Australian computer scientist Craig Wright’s long-held claim that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. The decision has come as a resounding defeat for the self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator.

The decision discredits a key pillar of Wright’s controversial identity. Furthermore, Judge James Mellor’s ruling could have far-reaching implications for the numerous lawsuits Wright has brought forward while claiming to be Bitcoin’s inventor.

Wright Is A Known Liar: COPA

Judge James Mellor’s ruling marks a decisive turning point in a protracted legal saga. Wright’s insistence on being Satoshi Nakamoto and, therefore, the author of the foundational Bitcoin whitepaper fueled intense speculation, skepticism, and numerous lawsuits for years.

This court decision now puts a definitive end to those claims.

The Crypto Open Patent Alliance (COPA), a group of cryptocurrency developers, sought legal intervention to prevent Wright from asserting copyright ownership over the Bitcoin whitepaper and influencing the Bitcoin network’s development.

During the trial, COPA presented evidence alleging Wright had forged documents and provided false testimony to bolster his claims of being Nakamoto. Moreover, Wright vehemently maintained his claim of being Satoshi Nakamoto and denied accusations of manipulating evidence.

Closing arguments for the lawsuit began on March 12. Interestingly, Judge Mellor handed a verdict within seconds of the closing arguments concluding.

Way Forward for Wright

The UK Court’s ruling against Wright is a major blow to the computer scientist’s reputation. Essentially, the lawsuit has legally proved that Wright was lying in his claims.

Furthermore, the judgment questions the foundation of other lawsuits Wright has filed, where his claim of being Satoshi Nakamoto was a central component. While Wright holds the option to appeal the decision, the legal and reputational cost of further litigation might make him think twice.

Meanwhile, it is likely that Wright may attempt to shift attention away from his Satoshi claims and focus on other cryptocurrency ventures with which he has been involved.
