The identity of Satoshi Nakomoto, the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin, has been an ongoing mystery since the figure’s retreat from the public eye over a decade ago. Australian computer scientist Craig Wright has asserted he is Satoshi, and has fought those who say otherwise in courts around the world. Few in the crypto community believe his claim.
Cheyenne Ligon, CoinDesk regulatory reporter, joins “Opinionated” hosts Ben Schiller, Danny Nelson and Anna Baydakova to discuss the latest lawsuit involving Craig Wright, this time in Norway. The group assesses new, and at times dubious, evidence put forth by Wright’s lawyers. After many unsuccessful attempts, does Wright still believe he can convince the world he is Satoshi?
