Judge rules computer scientist is not the inventor of Bitcoin


Australian computer scientist Craig Wright has lost a legal battle over the invention of Bitcoin, as ruled by the judge overseeing the case. The ruling came after a five-week trial at the High Court, with Mr Justice Mellor making a quick decision due to overwhelming evidence against Wright. Despite Wright’s claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the true identity of Bitcoin’s creator remains unknown. Wright’s aggressive legal battles and questionable evidence have long been scrutinized by cryptocurrency experts. The case was brought by the Crypto Open Patent Alliance (COPA), accusing Wright of hindering cryptocurrency development with his legal actions. COPA’s legal team accused Wright of dishonesty and forgery, with serious consequences for the industry. The judge ultimately ruled that Wright is not Satoshi Nakamoto and did not create the Bitcoin system. He will provide a full written judgement in the future.
