A few weeks after self-proclaimed Bitcoin inventor, Craig Wright filed a copyright claim as the original inventor of the leading cryptocurrency, a Chinese citizen, Wei Lui has followed the same step.
To be clear, Coinfomania reported after Craig Wright’s filing that the registration was not verified by the U.S Copyright’s office, meaning it was a process that anyone could undertake within a few minutes if they wanted to do so.
A certain, Wei Lui, for reasons best known to him has now taken the baton, filing a similar application with the U.S Copyright’s office that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the inventor of Bitcoin.
As the image above reveals, Wei Lui although being a Chinese citizen, registered the copyright protection for the Bitcoin whitepaper on May 24, just three days after news regarding Craig Wright’s registration broke out. Therefore, it appears that the individual is only bent on proving that what the self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator claimed was a proof, did not in any way confirm that he is Satoshi Nakamoto.
Meanwhile, despite claiming to be Bitcoin’s inventor Craig Wright is already leading the movement for another cryptocurrency, BitcoinSV which pumped in value in the wake of news about the unauthorized filing earlier this month.
Several media outlets have also reported that another false report regarding the BitcoinSV coin is the reason for the recent spike in its value, especially in the last 24-hours.
However, in the hours leading up to press time, BitcoinSV has put in an abysmal performance dropping from $250 to $201.
Time will now tell what action Craig Wright will take next in his unfounded effort to prove that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. For the time being, though, we have another legally certified Satoshi, and his name is Wei Lui.
