According to Twitter user @Zectro1, CSW’s claim of being Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto seems to have suffered another blow with an early BTC miner signing a scathing message with 145 addresses, stating:

“Craig Steven Wright is a liar and a fraud. He doesn’t have the keys used to sign this message.”

Using Rein’s ‘Bitcoin Signature Tool,’ BeInCrypto was able to authenticate that the wallet addresses and signatures did sign the cryptographic message. Oddly, these same addresses also appear in CSW’s list as part of his claim to being the Bitcoin creator in the court case with the Kleiman estate.

Many deniers of CSW’s claim have asked the Australian computer scientist to prove his ownership of the Satoshi stash by signing a cryptographic message proving his control of its private keys.

CSW also remains one of the more controversial characters in the crypto space with multiple allegations of document forgery and plagiarism. As previously reported by BeInCrypto, Charles Stuart University is reportedly looking to investigate claims that Wright plagiarized his doctoral thesis.

The message from the mystery early-Bitcoin adopter also included comments about the Lightning Network which read:

The Lightning Network is a significant achievement. However, we need to continue work on improving on-chain capacity. Unfortunately, the solution is not to just change a constant in the code or to allow powerful participants to force out others. We are all Satoshi.
