With CoinGeek Toronto just around the corner, I wanted to sit down with our Founder, Calvin Ayre, to get his thoughts on some of the latest topics surrounding the Bitcoin SV ecosystem and why our readers should consider joining him at the conference.
Craig Wright is Satoshi Nakamoto
Since the creator of Bitcoin, “Satoshi Nakamoto,” revealed his technology to the world in January 2009, the question of who is behind the pseudonym has been a popular debate amongst crypto enthusiasts.
Earlier this year nChain’s chief scientist, Dr. Craig Wright, confirmed he is Satoshi Nakamoto, and despite some backlash from the community, Ayre has publicly stated again and again that he is 100% positive Dr. Wright is telling the truth.
“Bitcoin was invented as a direct solution to government interference and people’s ability to spend their money where they want to in the gaming industry. So Bitcoin actually comes from the gaming industry,” Ayre explained.
“Craig’s got a background in the gaming industry, I have a background in the gaming industry and one of my close personal friends from the gaming industry actually knew Craig, another Australian gentleman, when he invented Bitcoin,” he said.
“Subsequent to that, I was introduced to Craig, and Craig has demonstrated in a number of other ways so that there’s no doubt in my mind that Craig is Satoshi Nakamoto and Craig is going to be proving that in court this year,” Ayre revealed.
Going to court to stop internet trolling
When asked for more details on going to court, Ayre explained that in an effort to squash endless digital trolling, both himself and Wright have engaged the same law firm to assist in obtaining relief and helping to set the facts straight.
