Bloomberg News reported that scientist Craig Wright will now be able to sue the mystery owners of the bitcoin.org website.  The story, picked up by the Drudge Report, emphasizes that the London court will permit Mr. Wright to go after the site for allegedly infringing his copyright over the world’s largest cryptocurrency.

Why It's Important

  • Wright claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonym for the person or people who worked on the software for the peer-to-peer currency Bitcoin.
  • Wright is seeking to have bitcoin.org remove the seminal 2008 white paper that sparked the currency.
  • Wright is involved in several court cases that could help prove or disprove his claim to be Satoshi.
  • The CoinGeek.com website, which supports the claim that Wright is the real Satoshi and co-creator/creator of Bitcoin, welcomes the opportunity for the Australian scientist to answer the question once and for all.
  • Bitcoin.org’s Cobra has refused to recognize Wright as Satoshi, saying he hasn’t provided a known PGP public key which would make it “cryptographically possible for someone to verify themselves to be Satoshi Nakamoto,” according to a January blog post. Wright’s claims “are without merit,” Cobra said.
  • Wright is seeking a declaration that he owns the copyright to the Bitcoin white paper, according to the statement.
  • He does not want to restrict access to the white paper which he has posted on his blog, it said.

Wright does not know the identities of those behind the bitcoin.org website.  He is suing the operating entity, known as Cobra.
