Comment Text:

This is a response in generalized format to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, request for input on crypto asset mechanics and markets. 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.

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.

https://comments.cftc.gov/PublicComments/ViewComment.aspx?id=61969

....

Would be interested to know what public opinions on Craig Wright's claims of being Satoshi are.

The thing that stands out most in my mind is one of Craig Wright's business ventures reportedly being supplied with $200 million in funding years ago. I interpreted this to mean Craig Wright was bought out by the establishment. Big banks paid him millions to push this false agenda of him claiming to be Satoshi as part of their anti crypto political agenda.

The timing of this could coincide with the recent appreciation of bitcoin's value. As we've seen in the past, many of these developments occur during times when the value of bitcoin is expected to rise. Perhaps in a deliberate effort to push the price back down. The timing of "bitcoin is a bubble" and other questionable news reports have paralleled this in the past and if history indeed repeats itself perhaps we'll witness a continuation of this trend leading into the future.

Of course, I could be in error here. Perhaps there are others who have followed these cases closer than I have and devoted more time and energy towards researching the claims made. If so I would be interested to hear it.

Anyone from the early days of Bitcoin can claim yo be Satoshi,  Craig wright has been proven several times to be a pathetic liar and he's actions opposes everything Bitcoin or Satoshi would have ever stood for. So there's no point paying attention to his tricks... All that's is required a signed message which I'm certain Craig Wright would have provided without second thought, If he indeed he's Satoshi, because he's that hungry for attention.

I think Satoshi is never going to reveal his identity in the future since he didnt do it untill now. So i personally cannot belive anyone saying he is the creator of Bitcoin. A lot of people have tried to prove they have created Bitcoin and failed because all they want is attention.

Very difficult to believe, because there is no concrete evidence for his statement. It is possible that behind his statement there was a separate interest he intended. I will not care about that for me, anyone who creates bitcoin is very proud because Bitcoin is able to attract many users and we benefit because it is peer-to-peer. And maybe this is one reason I might also be all of you Bitcoin users, I hope that Bitcoin will be able to continue to fulfill the future of the world.

I don't spend any time or energy following what Craig Wright
has to say or what the public think.

IMO there is only 1 way to prove he is Satoshi, unlock one of
Satoshi's wallets and move some tokens to another wallet,
or simply sign a message from one of the wallets. why is this
nonsense continuing?

The wallets are public knowledge and so any movement can be
monitored and recorded

I somehow believe that he tries to find somebody that is not that deep into this tech and can be fooled. And after he gets official papers, it doesn't matter anymore. He doesn't want to "rule", we wants to get out some money off this, as many as possible.

The real identity is yet to be disclosed and might not be at all. People claiming to be satoshi are seeking attention to create a hype for themselves and their businesses. For me, I don't believe anybody coming to the media to say he is satoshi.

Again? he never stops with this claim.

I'll probably believe if he logs in to satoshi's bitcointalk account and proves it by signing a message.

How we can trust people who claim to be Satoshi but who are against Bitcoin. None of this makes sense. Maybe Craig Wright was paid for this in order to influence the market conditions to be used by those who paid for it. It is ironic if this is true.

Already he has being proven false when the first time he was claiming that he was Satoshi and now again he is repeating the same mistake. This will actually lead to a bad public image of his and people will never respect him in future. Only thing he wants now fame I believe due to which again he wants to claim that.

Not a chance, there is no possible way he is Satoshi, he is trying to claim he is Satoshi so he can get away with what he wants but there is no way of proving that he is. If he was Satoshi he could have simply signed with his account and proved that he is in fact Satoshi just like when Satoshi cleared the lie that he was dorian or whatever that old dude that was mistaken for Satoshi but he can't because he is not.

There is really no point on dwelling if he is because the longer we discuss if he is or not the more people will look at him like he might be and we are giving too much attention to him, just let him be whatever he is trying and not give him any attention so he would die slowly while nobody cares about who he is. I can claim to be as much Satoshi as he can, only difference is he has a ton of bitcoin to back him up.

This particular topic had been discussed many times in this forum and it is very very clear already that, this community doesn't think Craig is Satoshi. He could not provide any single evidence supporting his claim and already done a big harm to bitcoin network by creating an altcoin in the name of bitcoin.

You are right in saying that he is probably being funded by the governments and banks to fulfil their anti crypto agenda through Craig. However, it makes absolutely no sense to the community. He will never stop claiming it and we will never stop scraping his claim. He is an insignificant impostor trying to gain some prominence in crypto world!

I really did not believe that Craig Wright was the original Satoshi Nakamoto, because there were so many deviations in that person, that the words he said did not make me believe him, because I was sure that Satoshi would always be mysterious.

Quite often someone comes forward claiming themselves to be Satoshi. Craig Wright being a very popular face holding big crypto fund claims him as Satoshi and some might believe if there isn't any discussion about the same. At least for that it is required to discuss about him.

From my view someone has known about Satoshi, and even now he's communicating to the world through some personality. We cannot reveal his identity anymore, because there is none to pin point he/she is Satoshi. Also, if the real Satoshi comes forward and say I'm Satoshi it is hard to believe as none has seen him before.

I don't think we will ever know who Satoshi is. CSW's agenda is to take control over "Bitcoin" and to steer it to suit his idea. People seem don't know how to counter his propaganda, thus preventing we fighting each other.

I also don't think much about who is actually satoshi, but for now the best is how someone influences and can bring changes to bitcoin, by contributing to its development, then he becomes an influential person here

All that's is required a signed message which I'm certain Craig Wright would have provided without second thought, If he indeed he's Satoshi,
This. The question of whether or not he is Satoshi comes down to this. If Craig Wright is unable to sign a message using the private keys of some of the wallets that are believed to belong to Satoshi, he is not Satoshi. The real Satoshi (whether it is a he, she or they, that's another story) had very good reasons to carefully protect his identity. If nothing else, today he would be one of the richest person in the world, so he would have to be really discrete. The real Satoshi would never behave so carelessly and ridiculously like what this imposter is doing.

I'll probably believe if he logs in to satoshi's bitcointalk account and proves it by signing a message.
I believe Theymos has locked the account which Satoshi used after the hack that happened a few years back.

Many of the former USENET and web IPOs scams have been propagated with the re-badging as an ICO.
This is a really valid point, all the scams that were happening in the past has re branded as ICO and the scams keep on evolving with change in technology and the market situation. The problem with Craig is that he is claiming that he is Satoshi even to legal institutions which could end up in big trouble if he could not prove himself.

The timing of this could coincide with the recent appreciation of bitcoin's value. As we've seen in the past, many of these developments occur during times when the value of bitcoin is expected to rise. Perhaps in a deliberate effort to push the price back down. The timing of "bitcoin is a bubble" and other questionable news reports have paralleled this in the past and if history indeed repeats itself perhaps we'll witness a continuation of this trend leading into the future.
When the price of bitcoin is about to break out we will hear many news that could push the price down, but when the rally begins you will not hear any negative news until you reach the peak of the rally and it is a pattern we are seeing for a long time and i am sure it will continue like that in the future.

This claim keeps coming from him. You can't claim to be the originator of something when you don't support that same thing. I think this publicity won't work.

 I think it was a joke of his. or he is trying to make Satoshi appear in public by claiming to be Satoshi.
he has collected quite a bit of information since Bitcoin started to sell tokens and provided quite convincing evidence. I think Satoshi will soon emerge because of Craig Wright's strategy Grin
