One of the most repeated lines in crypto is “Craig Wright is a fraud” – but did you know this is actually cryptographically proven without the slightest doubt?
Craig Wright claims a lot of things – not only being Satoshi, but also owning all of Satoshis coins. However no one actually knows which coins belong to Satoshi. So he just listed all coins in his dubious “Tulip Trust List” that he believed were Satoshis.
Plot List: Not all of these addresses belonged to Satoshi, and also not all were dormant. In May 2020, the following Message was signed by 145 addresses Craig Wright claimed to own, and published together with the signatures:
One of the addresses with verified Signature, checked with verifybitcoinmessage.com
The same address found in the Tulip Trust List
You can find an archived version of all addresses and signatures here.
Cryptographically this signature is as secure as a BTC transfer – it could only be created with the private key, and it's an indisputable proof the owner of this address agrees with the written message.
Where are we today, almost 3 years later?
BSV chart on CoinMarketCap
His own version of Bitcoin, BSV is at about 35.90$, down 92% from ATH. The market cap of this fraudulent project is still 690 Million USD and ranks #65 on CoinMarketCap. Even though it's proven he claimed to own many addresses he clearly doesn't own, people continue to trust him and believe he is Satoshi Nakamoto.
Don't buy this fake Bitcoin and don't believe Craig Wright, he is a liar – this is proven in the most fundamental way possible in crypto.
