The post Crypto Legal Expert Re-Analyzes Craig S Wright’s Satoshi Nakamoto Allegations appeared first on Coinpedia Fintech News
The crypto industry is no stranger to mystery, intrigue, and explosive revelations. The enigma of Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin, has been a topic of hot debate for years. Recent assertions by John Deaton, a leading crypto attorney, shed light on the infamous narrative surrounding Craig S Wright (CSW) and his claims to be the legendary Satoshi.
Deaton said that when he first encountered Bitcoin back in 2016, he, like many others, was captivated by the challenge of discovering the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. Names like Nick Szabo, Adam Back, David Schwartz, and Jed McCaleb made his list of potential Nakamoto candidates, but CSW’s inclusion intrigued many.
While Deaton noted that he hadn’t interacted much with CSW (to the point where CSW even blocked him on social media), he did share some insights into why he felt the computer scientist might have had an early connection to Bitcoin.
A video clip where CSW was asked about his initial involvement with Bitcoin stood out. In this clip, with a sly grin, Wright claimed he was on board before Bitcoin had any monetary value.
Influencing Minds and Shaping Narratives
The impact CSW has had on key crypto personalities can’t be understated. CSW’s narrative has sometimes convinced big names like Gavin Andresen, Roger Ver, and Calvin. The magnetism of CSW’s claims seems undeniable.
Despite his compelling influence, Deaton held skepticism, particularly about CSW possessing the mythical Satoshi’s keys. He cited CSW’s unpredictable behavior, believing that had he held the keys, he would’ve possibly liquidated the Bitcoins to create turmoil.
Calvin Ayre’s Bombshell Revelations
Adding fuel to the fire was a recent post from Christen Ager-Hanssen. It showcased a purported communication between Calvin Ayre and CSW. The content? Claims of threats made by CSW towards Ayre. This revelation certainly adds another layer to the drama surrounding CSW’s claims and his relationship with other crypto players.
