‘Everyone Can Be Satoshi’: Wei Liu Breaks Silence on Bid to Contest Craig Wright’s Bitcoin Copyright


Guess who’s back again? Satoshi’s back… or at least a person else proclaiming authorship of the Satoshi White Paper.

Wei Liu, CEO of crypto fund MarvelousPeach Funds, registered a copyright for “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Digital Hard cash Procedure,” making him the second person to copyright the well-known doc. We tracked him down in Beijing to get clarity on his attempt to wrest to regulate or, most very likely, comment on Craig S. Wright’s white paper registration.

Liu is a crypto entrepreneur from China and stated his purpose in registering the doc was to place out that copyright is technically meaningless in this context. He also needed to poke enjoyment at what he phone calls “CSW cultists.”

He instructed CoinDesk:

“I filed it just to let people know any one can sign-up a copyright. Everybody can be Satoshi Nakamoto.”

“Now we can equally exhibit our qualifications and see who ends up sporting an orange go well with!” Craig Wright instructed Decrypt.

Liu was the former COO of F2Pool and started off bitcoin mining in 2011. He also worked on Cobo Wallet.

Liu’s submitting is dated May perhaps 24, a couple times soon after Wright registered his copyright. Liu posted on Weibo that he was “making enjoyment of CSW’s ‘cult group,’ who beforehand stated only CSW can sign-up a copyright, no one particular else.”

Clearly, as we see, a person else can.
