and so are the new claimants of the Bitcoin Whitepaper coming in front consecutively. Recently, A Chinese citizen Wei Liu claimed the US copyright for Bitcoin White Paper on May 24, 2019. The official United States Copyright record has shown the details.

As per the data, California, U.S. based pretender has claimed that he has published the bitcoin white paper on Jan. 11, 2008, using the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto, titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System.”

However, it is still not clear the intention or the motivation behind Wei Liu claim about the Bitcoin Whitepaper. Interestingly, the persona is not known by anyone as of now by press time.

Earlier in May, few corroborated news portals and a press release published on May 21 by Coingeek, refers that Craig Wright is the real Satoshi Nakamoto and allegedly the United States officers received the confirmation from Wright about the construction of Bitcoin white paper and the majority of the original codes which he used to shape Bitcoin. However, the news has met with uncertainty and still not proved trustworthy by the industry experts and cryptocurrency news reviewers.

On May 22, in a counter-response from the U.S. Copyright Office, it got clear that “The Copyright Office does not investigate the truth of any statement made” and does not recognize Wright as an actual Satoshi Nakamoto- the creator of the major cryptocurrency.

Interestingly, the claim by the self-proclaimed Satoshi Craig Wright has not met with the constructive decision by the legal authorities and the Wright’s copyright filings are still a matter of heated conversations and disagreements.

Few commentators also stating that an Australian Computer scientist and a businessman Craig Steven Wright is a fraud and publicity-seeking con-man and due to his false claims the market sentiments have taken a complete up-turn in the cryptocurrency space and made Bitcoin SV (BSV) surge at a $196.59 with a circulating supply of 17,808,436 BSV as per the CoinMarketCap data.
