A new publication has called BSV creator Craig Wright a fraud, proving that he doesn’t own many of the Bitcoin addresses he had earlier claimed to own.
According to a May 25 message signed by 145 Bitcoin addresses, Craig Wright is a liar. The message reads:
“Craig Steven Wright is a liar and a fraud. He doesn’t have the keys used to sign this message. The Lightning Network is a significant achievement. However, we need to continue work on improving on-chain capacity. Unfortunately, the solution is not to just change a constant in the code or to allow powerful participants to force out others.”
All of the wallets that published and signed the message are among the few thousand wallets Wright had previously said he owns. However, he has been unable to prove ownership or do anything with the funds in the wallet, casting serious doubt on the claim. The wallets were also created in Bitcoin’s early days.
Craig Wright is very popular for repeatedly claiming that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the anonymous Bitcoin founder. The self-proclaimed Nakamoto status is another declaration he has been unable to prove.
Wright, for a while now, has been in the middle of a lawsuit brought by the Kleiman estate, accusing him of stealing Bitcoin mined with his former partner – David Kleiman.
Back in February, Binance CEO and co-founder Changpeng Zhao also called Wright a fraud.
