Charlie Lee, the creator of the Litecoin cryptocurrency, tweeted earlier how Craig Wright inadvertently outed himself as not actually being Satoshi Nakamoto, a role he had claimed in the past. The admission was made when Wright was confronted about not being included in a list of blockchain’s influential people, despite Satoshi Nakamoto’s name actually being on it.

It was obvious from the very beginning that this clown could never ever be something that comes even close to Satoshi himself ~ this dude is just horny for attention, and hasn't done much effort when it comes to hiding it.

It was actually funny seeing the main stream media channels report that Bitcoin's mysterious creator was finally found. Mr Wright was looking for attention, and he exactly got what he was looking for.

It was however not exactly the kind of attention he was hoping for. This con artist likely thought that the entire community would embrace him and take everything his says for granted ~ what a pathetic being.

I reckon him, Roger Ver and Jihan Wu are out there to sow confusion on the unaware public as bitcoin becomes bigger and more far reaching. They will keep pushing for bitcoin cash as the real bitcoin, and some people who have no understanding of what is happening and the history behind it will believe it us the real bitcoin supported by Satoshi Wright.

I think the Bitcoin Cash window of opportunity has already been and gone. It has no media attention. It's just another alt. No one beyond the BTC echo chamber has any interest in it and they're the ones who'll drive adoption, not the people inside it.

In time Mr Wu and Mr Ver will become historical footnotes.

The media was just looking for a good material that can attract more viewers so they played along with the game initiated by Mr. Craig Wright. Who in his sound mind would ever believe such a claim? Maybe people who are also having some mental problems will do but not for us in the Bitcoin community. He is a big joke and in extension a liar.

However, am suggesting that he used his fame to maybe so something good. He can be able to redeem himself by involving in something that can benefit the whole Bitcoin community and maybe also the whole of the humanity. He better be promoting a good cause contributing positive gains for his  fellowmen.

I am happy that finally he admitted his route-to-fame joke!

It is Craig Wright already admitted already that he is not Satoshi? Or I may have been confused him of someone because there's really a lot of names out there claiming to be Satoshi or least suspected to be Satoshi.

In any case, is this is the first time he really admits that he is not the man, then good for him. At least we have eliminated one of the many dozens Satoshi's out there. And he's fame clearly shoots up because others points him as Satoshi and may admit one time or another that he is actually the man. And he has to blame media for that, for putting his name but for those who have one time our another has cross-path with Satoshi know that Craig is not him. And he really loves all the attention he got, unfortunately, he got tired of and totally forgot him.

Like the title says, he did it inadvertently - what happened is that there was a list of blockchain's influential people and the name of Satoshi Nakamoto was included, but "Craig Wright" was not, and then Craig Wright twitted that he wasn't included on that list, meaning that he doesn't think about himself as Satoshi Nakamoto. So, it wasn't a direct confession, but it's another piece of puzzle called "Craig Wright is a scammer".

As long as Jihan Wu supports it and Roger Ver still has his ardent followers, bitcoincash still has a chance to get the center stage. Do I think that it will overthrow bitcoin? No, but it will get enough attention and a fast growing market cap to make us think that a flippening might happen.

I reckon their goal is a threat of a flippening, not the flippening itself.
