By CCN Markets: The most recent claimant to the Bitcoin throne, Craig Wright, continued his campaign against cryptocurrency privacy this week. The Bitcoin SV front man questioned the legality of coin mixers – tools which jumble transactions together for purposes of anonymity – and threw some less Wright’s latest in a long line of blog posts maintains the inflammatory and combustible tone he’s become known for. But when he’s not calling Bitcoin Cash (BCH) “B*tCHcoin”, Wright touches on a serious issue that looms large over the ongoing cryptocurrency experiment.

We are all Satoshi Nakamoto, but some of us are more Satoshi than others. The following 10 characters have all been flagged as Bitcoin’s elusive creator on account of similarities with the digital man of mystery. Whether one of these characters is Satoshi himself is a matter for you to decide.

Pros: The Finnish professor is one of the first people to be suggested as Satoshi, in a 2011 New Yorker article. Due to the lack of fevered speculation at the time, which has tainted subsequent attempts to uncover Satoshi, Vili Lehdonvirta’s dox feels purer than the rest. That doesn’t make it any more correct though.
The cryptocurrency community got riled up recently over Craig Wright’s U.S. copyright registration of the Bitcoin whitepaper and some of the code from the early software.

Craig Wright has filed copyright registrations for the original Satoshi white paper and bitcoin code with the U.S. Copyright Office.
One of the most enduring mysteries of modern times has produced another enthralling twist. Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin’s pseudonymous and enigmatic creator, has not been seen online in more than eight years. Evidence has now surfaced that points to a new Satoshi candidate, whose known life has a number of parallels with that of Bitcoin’s inventor. His name is Paul Le Roux and, if proven to be Satoshi, there is a good reason why his 1 million BTC hasn’t moved – the Rhodesian has been in jail since 2012.
The hunt for Satoshi Nakamoto, which has beguiled internet sleuths for years, has taken another bizarre turn. A new website, Got Satoshi, shows a countdown timer to when it will unveil Bitcoin’s pseudonymous creator. The reveal will occur in 10 days’ time, when many bitcoiners will be gathered in New York for the annual Consensus summit. Although sure to be little more than a PR stunt with a disappointing reveal, the site has generated significant interest, demonstrating the enduring appeal of the Satoshi myth.

The Lightning Torch, a Lightning Network payment that has been forwarded to bitcoiners around the world via Twitter, has run its course and reached its end in the charitable hands of Bitcoin Venezuela.
It’s grown a lot since we last covered it in February. In fact, the term “Torch” doesn’t seem to do it justice anymore. At this point, it could rightly be called a bonfire.
The lawsuit against Craig Wright continues this week and on April 5, court dockets indicate that Florida Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart memorialized rulings from the recent Craig Wright deposition. Moreover, the counsel representing the Kleiman estate has submitted 2,136 documents belonging to Dave Kleiman on April 4. Many of the court documents submitted over the last year reference a mysterious woman named Uyen T Nguyen.
In the state of Florida, there’s an ongoing lawsuit against Craig Wright, the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, for billions of dollars. Wright is being sued by the Kleiman family on behalf of the late Dave Kleiman for allegedly misappropriating billions worth of BTC through a partnership years ago.

On Feb. 8, the chief executive of Nchain, Craig Wright, wrote a blog post that purportedly described his experience of creating Bitcoin. Wright’s essay states “I was Satoshi” but throughout the story, he refuses to reveal his keys. It’s not the first time Wright has claimed to be Satoshi, but in the comment section of his blog post, another character calls him a “liar” and claims that he is in fact the real Satoshi Nakamoto.
The man who claims to have invented Bitcoin, Craig Wright, is being sued in Florida for roughly $ 10 billion or 1.1 million BTC. Last December Florida district Judge Beth Bloom denied Wright’s motion to dismiss the billion-dollar lawsuit against him. Now Wright has responded to the complaints and most of his responses assert that he lacks knowledge or information sufficient to answer the allegations.

Charles Hoskinson is best known today as a co-founder of both Ethereum and IOHK, where he leads the research, design and development of Cardano. But before these projects, there was Bitcoin. Back in 2013, he was the founding chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation’s education committee and established the Cryptocurrency Research Group.
In an interview with Bitcoin Magazine during the recent StartEngine Summit, Hoskinson began by saying that he views Bitcoin as a series of experiments to try and realize two key concepts:
This rather long meme, which has been circulating lately, makes fun of the views of Bitcoin supporters by listing commonly made statements and contrasting them with contradicting statements or developments.
This was obviously intended for humorous purposes, and as such, I should probably not take it too seriously.
But as the titular proverb goes, there is a grain of truth in every joke, and the existence of this image sheds light on what some people think. I found here an instructive opportunity to dissect the arguments and share my thoughts on them.
