Welcome back to the weekly roundup where we talk about three of the most interesting news stories of the week. We recently saw Bitcoin reach the $8k key resistance level so the community is buzzing on what the future holds for the crypto space and the leading currency.
So today we’re going to look at the co-founder of Ethereum who recently spoke about the project’s scalability increasing over the next few years, Max Keiser giving an extremely bullish estimate on BTC, and the continuation of the Satoshi/Craig Wright debate as Calvin Ayre teases new ‘evidence’ on the matter.
The Satoshi Debate
Let’s start with the latter.
We all know of the mysterious figure that is Satoshi Nakamoto who created Bitcoin back in the day of 2009.
Well, you may also know that Craig Wright – who’s been under a bit of fire over the past few months – is a self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto and claims that he, among a team of others, created the leading cryptocurrency as we know it today.
Of course, with such a claim, there are a lot of people who don’t believe him and it seems that those people are religiously against the idea of Wright being the Bitcoin creator.
A close friend to Wright, Calvin Ayre is not one of these people. In fact, Ayre also claims that Wright is Satoshi and uses the hashtag #CraigisSatoshi constantly on Twitter.
Recently, Ayre tweeted:
“I will be releasing more evidence that #CraigisSatoshi prior to #CoinGeek scaling conference on May 29-30 in Toronto. Thousands of people globally already know the truth.”
We’ll have to wait until the end of the month until we find out what Ayre’s ‘evidence’ is but it’s worth keeping an eye on this story to see how it unfolds.
