Craig Wright, who repeatedly claims to be Bitcoin's anonymous inventor, Satoshi Nakamoto, has again made a new attempt to show this to the public.
Once again, Craig Wright wants to prove that he wrote the Bitcoin white paper
On Thursday, August 22, 2019, Wright published the Bitcoin White Paper on the SSRN Web site. This website is dedicated to scientific contributions and one of them has been submitted, stating that since August 21, 2008, he is the author of the white paper.
The website is an international platform for articles dealing with scientific research. The service belongs to the big publishing house Elsevier, where book authors can upload their PDFs into their work.
SSRN staff review downloads to ensure that the document is part of the scientific discourse in its field. In addition, authors are encouraged to be convinced of the accuracy of the information provided.
The paternity of the white paper has not been proven to date. Wright filed a registration with the US Copyright Office to justify his claims of being the inventor of Bitcoin.
Shortly after the announcement of the news, there was a big uproar in the Bitcoin community. The Copyright Office issued a statement in which it refuted the idea that it would officially recognize anyone as the inventor of bitcoin.
"When the Copyright Office receives an application for registration, the applicant will generally confirm the accuracy of the information provided in the submitted documents." The Copyright Office does not have the right to do so. not investigate the accuracy of his statement. "
Similarly, Wright's publication of the Bitcoin White Paper on SSRN should not validate his thesis. But apparently, he is trying to use every opportunity to extend that assertion.
Already on Twitter commentsthat Wright's white line metadata has been modified to indicate a different creation date.
