Learn Concept: Exploring the Battle Over Bitcoin's Origins

By: Eva Baxter

The identity of the creator of Bitcoin has been one of the biggest mysteries in the world of cryptocurrencies. Recently, the Crypto Open Patent Alliance (COPA) dismissed claims made by Craig Wright, who asserts to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin. This high profile trial has been ongoing for a decade with Wright seeking to control over Bitcoin's development through copyright laws, leading COPA to file a counter-lawsuit. Dependable proof of Wright's identity as the legendary 'Satoshi' has yet to be presented in court, resulting in a lengthy tug-of-war between the two sides.

Significantly, Wright has been accused by COPA of relying on forged documents to establish his claims, highlighting a serious attempt at court fraud. The alleged instances of fraud include new evidence introduced during the trial that later revealed to be recent forgeries. Accusations of email forgery concerning the MYOB records and alleged repeated perjury have also been levelled against Wright during the proceedings. The verdict of this case is yet to be reached and could potentially result in drastic ramifications on the perception of Bitcoin's creation history.
