Bitcoin Cash [BCH] is fully focused on adoption of cryptocurrencies in commerce, says Roger Ver

The cryptocurrency space is finally getting mainstream attention these days, following the efforts of the many thought leaders who have worked hard towards its promotion and subsequent adoption. Roger Ver is one of these thought leaders, with Ver promoting Bitcoin Cash [BCH] as the original Bitcoin. In doing so, he recently featured in an interview to discuss BCH’s new capabilities and its work against the current system of law.
Ver began by speaking about BCH’s latest innovation, “self-custodial blind escrow,” as a differentiator from the current cryptocurrency leader, Bitcoin [BTC]. He explained,
“This (blind escrow) platform allows anybody to buy and sell Bitcoin Cash [BCH] in any country and any payment method, with no AML KYC required from Bitcoin.com. The people are only required to abide by their local regulations.”
The core of this technology is powered by a special op-code that leverages a third-party’s datasig to verify and settle payment or transaction disputes. While highlighting that BTC did not support this feature yet, Ver stated that neither the chosen third party authority nor Bitcoin.com will hold any access to the transaction data, due to the system’s end to end encrypted infrastructure. He also supported BCH’s sluggish trading value recovery by saying,
“If you want the long term price to go up, you should be focusing on the adoption of cryptocurrencies and commerce. And that’s exactly what we’re doing at Bitcoin Cash.”
Global BCH trading has commenced from June 4th, in honor of the 1989 Tienanmen Square protests in Beijing, China. While the move strongly hints at Ver’s attempt to monopolize the crypto-hungry Chinese market, he stressed that people from across the world can use any payment methods to make BCH purchases, including “PayPal, wire transfer or even a suitcase full of cash at Starbucks.”
Speaking about the implications of using Bitcoin.com’s services in countries where crypto is banned, Ver compared the situation with marijuana’s legality, stating,
“If a law is a bad one or a stupid one, people should disobey it. Smoking a plant that makes you feel happy isn’t a crime.”
He also pointed out the problem of tribalism in the crypto-community, while complimenting peer blockchains including Ethereum, Dash, Monero, and Zcash. On the other hand, Ver called out the bad players that attempted a hack on the Bitcoin Cash network during the recent hard fork. As a collective response on behalf of other prominent leaders such as Peter McCormack and Vitalik Buterin (who are also sued by BSV’s Craig Wright), Ver said,
“Craig, you’re wasting everybody’s time and retarding the rate of economic growth at the entire world by wasting everybody’s time. So please stop, go and go and live your life and do something else.”

Bitcoin SV’s Craig Wright accuses Binance, Tether of using their money to fund prostitution, slavery

In addition to the notorious Satoshi Nakamoto saga, nChain’s Craig Wright caught the crypto-ecosystem’s attention by making a rare appearance at a conference in Toronto, in the middle of the short-lived 93% spike recorded by Bitcoin SV’s trading value. As always, Wright made news again after making yet another infamous accusation.
The BSV spearhead, while hosting the conference to promote Bitcoin SV, claimed that Bitcoin [BTC] was in circulation, only to enable illegal operations. A recorded clip of the incident surfaced on YouTube, in which Wright is heard saying,
“Binance, Bitfinex, and Tether use Bitcoin [BTC] to fund fund illegal operations for pumping money such as illegal money travel, illegal use of people smuggling.”
However, Wright failed to cite any source or evidence backing his claims. This statement was particularly significant in the light of the fact that almost everyone accused by Wright has openly dismissed Wright’s claims of being Satoshi Nakamoto. Binance, for instance, had also de-listed Bitcoin SV from its trading platform.
Additionally, Wright accused the crypto-giants of funding prostitution and slavery. He said,
“Right now, 30% of Binance money funds women in prostitution, 30% of Binance and Tether funds women in slavery.”
One of the accused was quick to respond to the accusations. Binance’s CZ responded,
“Giving attention is probably what he wants… We ignore stupid stuff, and focus on things that matter. #BUIDL”
Apart from making stunning accusations, Wright’s speech also focused on revealing his intentions behind building usable applications, tools, and infrastructure for other people to make the ecosystem better. He added,
“The only reward I want from this is you to build something better. I don’t want a world where we have people isolated by machines. I want to be a part of the world where people are paid to be a part of everything.”
Unless the reality uncovers itself, Craig Wright seems to have managed to convince a new set of people that he in fact, is the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. One crypto-enthusiast, @Patrice_Gaucher, tweeted,
“If this doesn’t convince people about him being Satoshi, I don’t know what will. An emotional closing that brought tears to my eyes. We are on the right ship people. Keep buying, share with others, lead the way.”

The fact that Bitcoin SV shared a sponsorship card with the likes of Uber, Apple, VISA, Amazon, MasterCard and Steam speaks volumes.

Binance CEO Gives ‘Fitting Reply’ To Craig Wright Over Appalling Allegations

Craig Wright, who is persistent with his claims of being Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin [BTC] has accused Binance of being involved in human trafficking and prostitution. He accused Tether and Bitfinex of the same crimes. In a recent Bitcoin Satoshi Vision [BSV] Conference he said,
“Right now Illegal operations pumping money in Tether and Binance. Illegal use of people smuggling. Right now 30% of Binance money funds women in prostitution.”
It was brought to the notice of the CEO of Binance by Peter McCormack and Max Keizer. Nevertheless, Changpang Zhao was calm and probably gave a fitting reply to the allegations.
attention is probably what he wants… We ignore stupid stuff, and focus on things that matter. #BUIDL
Peter McCormack vs Craig Wright
Craig Wright has sued Peter McCormack for defamation and asked for an apology in open court while accepting the fact the, he is in fact, Satoshi Nakamoto. Peter McCormack, tweeted to this,
One thing I refuse to do is accept or say in court that Craig Wright is Satoshi and that BSV is the real Bitcoin.
Moreover, the many members from the crypto-Twitter community have extended their support by offering to participate in crowdfunding for the legal expenses of the case. However, McCormack has insisted that,
Please stop harassing people telling them they have to financially support my defence. If I choose to crowdfund then I’ll post an address which will be optional and [Jake Chervinsky] will audit the use of funds. I have options before I go down this path.
He has also decided to defend the case and expressed the fact with new-found vigor.
An Australian registered as a citizen from Antigua and Barbuda, financed by a Canadian is looking to use the libels laws of “my home country” to sell a lie, I look forward to defending this.
He has also continued to make satirical comments on Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre unabashedly. The price of Bitcoin SV [BSV] also broke below $190 a roller-coaster ride due to the spread of the ambiguous and then, possibly fake news rumor in China.
Moreover, with a certain amount of controversy and extreme price fluctuation, it is clear that the identity of Satoshi would create more problems for cryptocurrency markets than it would solve. Hence, he claims must be put to a stop as he hasn’t been able to prove them either. The real Satoshi acted anonymously for a reason which must be respected.

Fake Satoshi and Binance Rumor in China Cause Bitcoin SV [BSV] Rise: Report

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision [BSV] ‘mooned’ on 30th May 2019 as the price surged by more than 65% in less than 8 hours. The price rose from $120 to a high of $197, rising almost every two minutes. It also the All-Time High for BSV for many exchanges like Bittrex which listed the fork of Bitcoin Cash [BCH] last year 2018 a couple of days later.
BSV/USD 1-Day Chart on Bitfinex (TradingView)
There wasn’t any significant fundamental or technical market indicator supporting the fact. Reportedly, the rise was fuelled by a fake news circulation in the we-chat community. It was first pointed out by Dovey Wan, who tweeted the picture which read the fake news on it in Chinese.
Photo of Fake News on BSV that Went Viral
“It reads “CSW transferred 50k BTC from the biggest BTC wallet to Binance, which confirmed he is the real Satoshi. As such CZ will re-list BSV and make an official apology on Twitter” it’s fake af but many retail will believe it for a while before they figure out it’s fake”

The rise was initiated at around 12: 00 Hours UTC on 29th May 2019. According to the update, the news was started at approximately 10: 00 Hours UTC. Hence, the timelines also justify the false news report. Wan also noted that,
“The trick is easy and constantly used by many scams – all chinese crypto media circulate the breaking news via picture as above in wechat, instead of news link. So anybody can just use the same theme template and photoshop one like above”
Satoshi’s anonymity has always acted as a USP for Bitcoin [BTC] to promote its decentralization. However, last few years the split in the ideologies in the Bitcoin core group had caused two popular forks in two years. Craig Wright, the proponent of one of these chains, BSV, claims to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto. Hence, his version of the chain must be most widely accepted as Bitcoin [BTC].

 Nevertheless, he has failed in his efforts over-all in convincing the crypto-community to support his claims. Moreover, his strategies are mostly causing abnormal movements in the markets and also creating considerable FOMO and FUD.

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision [BSV] Gains 200% in a Fortnight as Price Breaks $180

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) the controversial hard-fork of Bitcoin [BTC], or rather Bitcoin Cash [BCH], has gained massively in the last couple of hours as it recorded gains above 47% in less than 10 hours. Bitcoin Satoshi Vision [BSV] which was trading around $120 early on 29th May 2019, broke extremely bullish reaching the All-Time Highs it had reached during its launch.
BSV/USD 4-Hour Chart on Bitfinex (TradingView)
The price of Bitcoin Satoshi Vision [BSV] at 13: 45 Hours UTC on 29th May 2019 is $186. It is trading 65% higher on a daily scale. The rise has been beyond one’s imagination, gaining almost every minute. It surpasses 0.0211 BTC.
BSV/USD 4-Hour Chart on Bitfinex (TradingView)
Currently, Bitcoin Satoshi Vision [BSV] is ranked 8th with a total market capitalization of more than 3.2 billion dollars. The price of BSV is almost 70% that of Ethereum at the moment. The rise can be attributed to Craig Wright’s claims over him being Satoshi Nakamoto.
The All-Time High of BSV is around $220-$240. This is recorded just after the hard fork event with Bitcoin Cash [BCH] as the two chains were competing to be recognized as the original payment system with Bitcoin [BTC]. It will meet with massive resistance at that level. Nevertheless, a break above it could trigger another run.

However, it was met with criticism as the claims still provided no proof of the fact that he is, in fact, Satoshi Nakato. Nevertheless, he is probably the only one in the world who is closet to creating fear about the revelation of Satoshi’s identity.

Bitcoin Will Disappear in Moments, Claims Craig Wright by Asserting Binance Involves in Money Laundering

Despite the community’s constant argument over Craig isn’t a Satoshi Nakamoto, he didn’t stop claiming him so. However, on May 24, 2019, Craig Wright published a new post with a harsh comment on the top cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. He says ‘BTC will disappear in moments.
The blog post of self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto entitling ‘Shades of Black’, the nchain Chief scientist kept his close eye towards law & rules around bitcoin. According to him, he created bitcoin to operate within the law and not to heat up criminal activities. The blog was posted on Wright’s website called ‘craigwright.net’ and the author of the article is named as Craig Wright himself.
“I designed Bitcoin to be a system that worked within the rules.”
He is now more focusing on rules and regulations revolves across bitcoin – however, he added Bitcoin need to act within the rules and as such, if its contract or deviates the exchange and system will criminalize everyone in the system.
Detailing about decentralized behavior of crypto and players like Binance and Bitfinex exchanges, Wright says no such platforms are decentralized. To note, Binance was the prime exchange delisting BSV and writing about decentralization, he adds no such thing (decentralization) exist, adding that on the name of such decentralized platforms, an individual sets the rules and an individual is liable.
With that he adds that Binance involves in Money laundering and crime;
I designed Bitcoin in a way that ensures that groups such as Binance who seek to facilitate money laundering and crime will always fail, Wright writes. They defraud you in telling you that they are decentralised and cannot be controlled.
He says blockchain is decentralized only if the developer is at their hard to modify the protocol.
Bitcoin is a system that was set in stone. If the protocol is changed, then it shows and demonstrates it is not Bitcoin.
In his detail guide, he continuously urging three key points, one being he created bitcoin that can be worked within the laws, second is that Binance faking by presenting the platform as decentralized and involves in crime & money laundering activities, third he adds bitcoin will disappear in moments.
Where a blockchain does not follow the rules, whether developers or other invested parties can alter the protocol, it is simple for government to stop. When the action happens, as it did with e-gold, everything invested in the system will vanish in a flash. When BTC disappears, it will not disappear slowly, it will disappear in moments.
In a lengthy blog post, he also mentioned names of Greg Maxwell, James Donald as the person who seek system outside of the law. He adds ‘possession of a key is not evidence of ownership’, citing that bitcoin to be treated as money, doesn’t necessarily rely on the mere possession of keys.
In a nutshell, Wright asserted that he will prove that he is the true creator of bitcoin and said, he will sign upon proving himself as Satoshi Nakamoto. Lastly, again noting about rules, Wright add;
‘Doing anything you want’ is not a system that is free. Freedom comes within society, and it comes with rules.

Criag Wright Officially ‘Not Recognized’ as Satoshi; Sues Challenger on Twitter

Furthermore, the price of Bitcoin SV [BSV] went up by more than 100%; it rose from $61 to record a high of $135 in a jiffy.  It held more than 80% gains on the following day as well.

US Copyright Office Issues Press Release on the Bitcoin Copyright Registration
According to the press release by the US Copyright Office, while Craig Wright has officially sworn in at the office that he is, in fact, the original author and claimant of the Bitcoin White Paper,
 “The Copyright Office does not have an opposition procedure for copyright registrations, such as the procedures available at the Patent and Trademark Office for patents and trademark registrations. Disputes over the claims in a registration may be heard before federal courts, including disputes over authorship of a work. Someone who intentionally includes false information in an application may be subject to penalties.”
The US Copyright Office replied that especially in Bitcoin’s case in which a ‘pseudonym,’ or a fictitious name is used, which is common in literature and entertainment industry, they do not verify the claims.
“In a case in which a work is registered under a pseudonym, the Copyright Office does not investigate whether there is a provable connection between the claimant and the pseudonymous author.”
Craig Wright Sues Peter McCormack
Peter McCormack had earlier challenged Craig Wright’s claims saying he would fight till the end in a court to prove that Craig Wright isn’t Satoshi Nakamoto.
Craig Wright actually sued McCormack over the claims. According to the lawsuit, Craig Wright had filed a defamation case against Peter McCormack on 2nd May among other things. He is demanding a penalty and an apology in open court about refuting Craig’s claims that, he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin. The details are not made public as they are sub judicial.
A new deadline for 24th May 2019 has been served to Peter McCormack under UK laws, to which McCormack has tweeted,
“RE: Craig Wright…I have spoken with two of the top legal firms in the world this morning. I will instruct one within a week. Let’s go get this motherf**ker!”
Crypto-Twitter seems to back Peter McCormack as they did during the fight with @hodlonaut. Pro-bono offers from lawyers and GoFundMe campaigns also began to support Peter against Craig in court. The drama will unfold in court in soon.
Do you think that proving Satoshi’s identity is detrimental for cryptocurrency markets? Will Craig Wright be successful in determining his claim? Please share your views.

Bitcoin SV Price Goes Vertical Following Craig Wright’s Whitepaper Copyright Claim

According to a press release published by CoinGeek, controversial crypto proponent Craig Wright has been granted copyright registrations for the original Bitcoin Whitepaper with the US Copyright Office. The pro-Bitcoin SV publication has used the news as concrete evidence that Wright is indeed Satoshi Nakamoto.
Although many in the wider cryptocurrency community remain unconvinced by Wright’s claims, even in light of the latest developments, it is clear from the Bitcoin SV price action that a lot of folks are taking the announcement as proof of Wright’s involvement in Bitcoin’s creation. The price of the crypto asset that forked from Bitcoin Cash last November has gone vertical since the news broke and is up over 72 percent over the last few hours at the time of writing.
Craig Wright Files Patent for Bitcoin Whitepaper, Crypto Community Ambivalent
It was announced earlier by the Calvin Ayre-owned, pro-Bitcoin SV publication CoinGeek, that entrepreneur and computer scientist Craig Wright has been successfully granted US copyright registrations for the Bitcoin Whitepaper, along with most of the crypto asset’s original code. Wright has been claiming himself to be the creator of the digital currency since 2015 and although it would be very easy for him to cryptographically prove himself Satoshi Nakamoto, he has never done so. This has led many in the community to call him a fraud.
In fact, some in the crypto space have gone to great lengths to prove that Wright’s claims are nonsense. This prompted the controversial figure to pursue legal action against those who have doubted that he is indeed the author of the Bitcoin whitepaper.
Naturally, CoinGeek and its owner, Calvin Ayre, have used today’s news that Wright has had his patents green lighted by the US Copyright Office as evidence confirming Wright’s claims:

Boom! Proof that #CraigisSatoshi has been accepted by US government copyright department.https://t.co/sr0PQno6Dg
— Calvin Ayre (@CalvinAyre) May 21, 2019

However, not everyone is convinced that the latest moves prove anything at all. Jerry Brito, the executive director at Coin Center, Tweeted:

Registering a copyright is just filing a form. The Copyright Office does not investigate the validity of the claim; they just register it. Unfortunately there is no official way to challenge a registration. If there are competing claims, the Office will just register all of them. https://t.co/YA70ALpG1Y
— Jerry Brito (@jerrybrito) May 21, 2019

Some pointed to it being yet more attention-seeking antics from Wright:

craig wright's newest shenanigan in trying to prove he's satoshi is our version of katy petty getting her nails done or whatever the normie celebrities do to get noticed
— Ambroid (@anambroid) May 21, 2019

Finally, Peter McCormack, the host of the What Bitcoin Did podcast and one of those apparently being sued by Craig Wright for dismissing his claims relating to the original Bitcoin protocol, responded to the news with typical nonchalance and humour:

I have registered the paper "Craig Wright is a Fraud" with the UK Intellectual Property Office.
Any misuse of "Craig Wright is a Fraud" and I will sue you for fraudulently claiming "Craig Wright is a Fraud".
— Dr. Peter McCormack (@PeterMcCormack) May 21, 2019

Satoshi’s Vision Price Rockets on Craig Wright News
As mentioned, the price of Bitcoin SV, the crypto project championed by Wright, has soared since the news broke. On a day with many low percentage gains across the market. The digital asset created when Bitcoin Cash forked last November has shot up by over 70 percent in just a couple of hours.
It actually peaked just shy of $140, up from around $61 prior to the news. It has since slumped back to around $110 at the time of writing – still an impressive gain not mirrored by the rest of the market.
The increase in buying pressure has likely been caused by those convinced by pro-Bitcoin SV news sources and Twitter accounts that Wright being granted a copyright for the Bitcoin code and whitepaper is concrete evidence that he is indeed the paper’s original author.

It touched a high of $135 a moment ago this time as the registration was being interpreted as confirmation of Craig Wright being Satoshi Nakamoto.

Hence, according to the laws of copyright in the US, while the registration has been granted to Wright it does not confirm or guarantee his identity. the Copyright is granted to anyone who files with a claim.

Craig Wright: Unredacted, unsealed court documents show alleged similarity with early BTC addresses

Self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto, Craig Wright’s legal troubles have not ceased. The nChain Chief Scientist’s court battle against the estate of former partner, Dave Kleiman, legislated by a district court in Florida, saw new developments.
According to a previous order by the court, Wright was expected to provide “transactional records” confirming BTC that he owned as of December 2013. The BSV proponent however, stated that to produce these Bitcoin holding records would be “unduly burdensome,” and that it was transferred to a blind trust by 2011.
The order in question had asked Wright to produce these records by 1700 ET on May 15.
Wright, while claiming to be the true creator of Bitcoin, had stated that he created the cryptocurrency with Dave Kleiman, something that could be proven by analyzing the early BTC addresses of the cryptocurrency’s creator.
The redacted list of addresses provided by Wright is of particular interest to the community since, according to the WizSec Bitcoin Security Specialists blog, Wright’s Bitcoin addresses presented to the court were simply ‘a copy-paste job.’ Interestingly, the author of the blog post claimed that the person who tipped him off about the similarity was Greg Maxwell, CTO of Blockstream. The blog read,
“We were chatting and speculating that it sounded like Wright just scraped the blockchain for early block reward beneficiaries and claimed those. Well, we dug a bit deeper and it looks like that guess was correct in the most literal way possible.”
The blog presented an unredacted version of the court order that detailed Wright’s motion, with reference to his surrender of public BTC addresses as on December 2013. According to the unredacted content of the order, Wright claimed that he “mined the earliest blocks on the blockchain.”
The order reportedly stated that the “first 70 blocks on the blockchain,” can be identified by Wright. The document added,
“While he continued mining afterwards, Dr. Wright did not keep track of which Bitcoin blocks he mined. Dr. Wright does not know any of the other Bitcoin public addresses.”
The WizSec blog post added that excluding the Genesis Block, the first 70 block reward addresses “line up perfectly with Wright’s redacted list.” The post stated that “educated guesses” can be made to determine the Bitcoin addresses that are redacted, using matching information and corresponding it with the original text.
Based on the similarity of addresses between the unredacted court documents and the block reward addresses from the early days of Bitcoin, the blog concluded,
“What Wright does provide appears to be just a lazy copy-paste from the blockchain, without any cryptographic signatures to support his claims of ownership.”
Regardless of this document, Craig Wright will have to provide transactional records of the blind trust referencing the transfer of Bitcoin in 2011, by May 15 to the Florida District Court.
Given below are the unredacted court documents,
