Key Takeaways

  • A UK judge ruled that Craig Wright is not the pseudonymous inventor of Bitcoin known as Satoshi Nakamoto.
  • The Crypto Open Patent Alliance (COPA) initiated legal action against Wright to prevent him from suing Bitcoin developers.
  • COPA views the ruling as a victory for developers and the open-source community, ending what they allege as years of bullying and intimidation by Wright.

The years-long debate over Satoshi Nakamoto’s true identity as the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin reached a conclusion on Thursday, March 14th, 2024, when a UK court ruled that Australian computer scientist Craig Wright was not the founder of Bitcoin nor the author of the Bitcoin whitepaper.

Decade-Long Saga Ends With COPA Victory

The Crypto Open Patent Alliance (COPA) initiated the lawsuit against Wright to halt his ongoing claims of being the creator of Bitcoin since 2016. However, the evidence presented during the month-long trial failed to convince the judge.

According to Justice Mellor, the evidence against Wright was “overwhelming.” The judge will release a written ruling detailing his findings, including why he believes Wright did not create the Bitcoin blockchain.

COPA cheered the decision as a major win for the crypto industry and the open-source software movement.

Satoshi Nakamoto’s Identity Remains A Mystery

While the court case settles the question of Craig Wright’s involvement, Satoshi Nakamoto’s true identity remains anonymous. With Wright’s claims finally debunked, the search for the real Satoshi continues, keeping the crypto community’s intrigue and engagement alive.
