Jeff garzik’s called to court to testify against Craig Wright: the Mystery of Satoshi may be disclosed

March 15, one of the early bitcoin developer and founder of Bloq Jeff garzik’s (Jeff Garzik) said that he was summoned by the district court of southern Florida to testify in the infamous trial of Ira Kleiman vs Craig Wright.

The family of Kleiman has filed a lawsuit against Wright (self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto), accusing him of misappropriation of 300 000 BTC, and garzik’s was summoned by the court for the submission of documents and possible evidence that may be relevant to the case.

Lawyers Kleiman want Jeff garzik’s revealed everything he knows about Satoshi, David Kleiman and Craig Wright.

Brother of the late David Kleiman, Ira Kleiman believes that Craig Wright David lied and manipulated his assets. Some even believe that David Kleiman, perhaps, was the Creator of Bitcoin. The family of Kleiman argues that Wright must reimburse about 300,000 BTC (1.1 billion US dollars) which belonged to David Kleiman, of the trust, the accounts of which, presumably, is 1 million bitcoins are frozen until 2020.

Now an early supporter and developer of the Bitcoin Jeff garzik’s will participate in the trial because he received a summons to court. On bringing him to testify insisted lawyers Kleimenov, they are asking the garzik’s submit any evidence of the theory that David Kleiman was Satoshi Nakamoto. The garzik’s told about the summons to his Twitter and attached a picture of the second page:

“Here’s the agenda. Came to me in connection with a claim about Bitcoin. To ensure total transparency show you a document that you just received.”

The document also contains questions about whether there is a connection between garzik’s and Wright’s, and whether he had any direct contact with the Kleiman. The plaintiff’s attorney is looking for any papers or letters that have been received from David Kleiman or W & K Info Defense (Kleiman and Richard Wright), as well as information about any contact with a man named Uyen Nguyen. In the document there are issues relating to mining Bitcoin in its first years of existence, Mt. Gox, Silk Road, Liberty Reserve and project Prometheus, and also refers to the cryptographer, Ian Grigg, writer Andrew O Hagan, billionaire Calvin Ayre and Cash Bitcoin advocate Roger Ver.

Personal theory of garzik’s

Wright and his attorneys denied the allegations and stated that Wright Kleiman there was oral agreement that Wright complied.

“Between Dr. Wright and David Kleiman and / or W & K Info Defense Research was not a written agreement of partnership”, — says the lawyer of Wright in response to 36 pages for the charges against his client.

Meanwhile, Wright in his numerous tweets and memoirs, told the audience about how he was involved with the creation of Bitcoin.

As part of a list of questions to garzik’s, which is a 14-page document also refers to an article in Bloomberg that contains “personal theory” of garzik’s about David Kleiman. The garzik’s says:

“My personal theory is that [Satoshi Nakamoto] is Florida Dave Kleiman. This is consistent with his coding style, because this gentleman was self-taught. The Creator of Bitcoin was something very, very smart, but did not receive a classical education engineer-programmer”.

This reckless quote has led to the fact that lawyers Kleiman to believe that garzik’s may know more about the relationship between Wright and Kleiman or know of something that connected David and the late Satoshi Nakamoto.

The old song about the main thing: Craig Wright once said that he is the real Satoshi Nakamoto

Principal investigator nChain Craig Wright again made a public statement that he is the Creator of Bitcoin. Recall that Wright included in the small circle of “suspects” who actually could be Satoshi Nakamoto.

Another “trick” Craig this time has caused confusion and even anger, cryptocommunist. Last time he said about his attitude to the creation of major cryptocurrency in November 2018. Then Craig Wright in the heat of debate on the eve of the hard forks of Bitcoin Cash in the e-mail correspondence with Roger Ver spoke again about his alleged direct relation to the development of Bitcoin.

Satoshi Nakamoto among us

At this time, Wright has published in a Medium post with the eloquent title “Be careful what you wish for”. The researcher nChain spoke about his “journey” on the way to the idea of Bitcoin, comparing yourself with Steve jobs.

“When Steve jobs was starting out, he was an outsider. He was many times rejected, but he fought for the right to build something every day. My attempts to create an alternative version of his first creations are contrary to my beliefs. And yet I allow myself to be in this situation.”

According to him, he did not expect to create a “anonymous system of money transfer”. He even despised people like the Creator of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange and Ross Ulbricht.

“They are not freedom fighters, they are not libertarians. They are simply predators, which represent the antithesis of what Bitcoin was created.”

Moreover, Bitcoin “needs” to function fully within the law with maximum transparency. Any user in the network of cryptocurrency (ostensibly on the idea of Wright) must be easy to find without “paperwork”. Finally, the last words the treatment of Wright was still a statement.:

“I Am Satoshi Nakamoto”

Bitcoin 10 years: Exchange BitMEX celebrated the anniversary of the first cryptocurrency Satoshi congratulations to The Times

In the room The Times of January 3, 2019 appeared advertising exchange BitMEX, timed to the tenth anniversary of the Genesis block of Bitcoin. Thus the user of the trading platform I wanted to thank the Creator of the cryptocurrency Satoshi Nakamoto. The cover of The Times was not chosen arbitrarily, because the title of this newspaper was in the first block of Bitcoin.

Grand anniversary

Message Bitmex also has “Easter eggs” — a little below is the hash of the transaction encrypted.

w#/ ThanksSatoshi /BTC.COM/��mm,���CA4Z_IGQ�~YVM܈H����{�|�|###B#b)#�

Today at 18:15 UTC, the Bitcoin blockchain will officially be 10 years old. Address with the first reward of the Genesis block has already received over 16 bitcoins as a gift. It is noteworthy that he is Satoshi can’t spend the first 50 bitcoins mined. Based on the rules of cryptocurrency mining, these coins will always remain in his wallet.

A short time later, after a hasty mining of the Genesis block, Satoshi explained some of the main principles of Bitcoin.

“You could say that coins are issued by the majority. They are available in a limited and predetermined quantity.Indeed, there is no one who could play the role of the Central Bank to regulate money supply with the increasing number of users. In this case we need a trusted party, as long as the software cannot know the real value of things.In this sense, bitcoin is more similar to precious metal. Instead of changing the proposal, we leave it fixed, therefore, the value of the asset is starting to grow. With the growth of the user base, that process will accelerate and lead to a vicious circle. Each new user alone increases the value of the coins, which, in turn, attracts even more users.”

Over the past few years Bitcoin has repeatedly been criticized, many analysts constantly predict “impending death” of bitcoin. However, all this negativity did not prevent the first investors in Bitcoin to make huge profits.

Detectives 4 countries team up to find Satoshi Nakamoto

According to the international group of cryptocurrency enthusiasts Findsatoshi, it’s time to find Satoshi Nakamoto.

Bid on kraudfandingovom platform Boomstarter was filed by a resident of Tallinn Herman Neff, who tried to explain his action. Following is the text of the application.

“We need to find Satoshi. And this is not a trivial curiosity. Now the market is at a fragile balance. For further development of the cryptocurrency just need to know who and why created it. Was this a real enthusiast gave the world an independent currency if it was a group of people pursuing scientific or, for example, a purely selfish goals, and maybe Bitcoin — development of a large company or the IT giant? Can Bitcoin be the state development, created to control all transactions? There are many assumptions as to who might be behind this, but none of the versions has not been confirmed.

We, international group of cryptoendoliths Findsatoshi, initiate an international search for the Creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto. The cryptocurrency world needs to be sure that Bitcoin is not a global deception.

We, the fans of the cryptocurrency, who firmly believe in the ideals of digital money need to know one in my wallet for over 1 million coins. And who can suddenly bring down the market. Virtually destroy it. Piece of news about the “leak” would be enough. Too great a risk for a new economic paradigm.

Imagine that Satoshi decides to bequeath all the passwords from wallets to their descendants, not if they want overnight sell cryptocurrency?

We must learn the truth to quietly live in a cryptocurrency environment. Without fear of tomorrow behind the scenes people will come, declares that the circus is over, and disappear again.

We pay cryptocurrency to the world his faith and we have a right to know the identity of Satoshi. And if Satoshi doesn’t want publicity, we need to declassify it themselves.

We are announcing fundraising for the search for the Creator of Bitcoin. We understand that only through public efforts, we can do it. As none of the intelligence agencies of the world to start a public search for this man. We’re going to make the search for Satoshi to have multiple, independent detective agencies located in the United States and Japan, as well as in Europe. Detective agencies will put forward a number of requirements, including to connect to the search of linguists and IT specialists. In addition, the detective Agency will be required to conduct a public and transparent report on its activities.

  • Why choose a detective Agency of the United States?

Possible place of residence.

  • Why Japan?

The best attitude to Japan.

  • Why Europe?

According to some, part of a group of persons working under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto could live in Europe. Pre-selected detective Agency with headquarters in Russia and France, carrying out searches of people across the continent and International detective Agency with headquarters in the UK.

It is important to note that in the case that Satoshi will be an ordinary man, the most brilliant cryptomnesia that fear of publicity after the publication of the true name of the Creator of the first cryptocurrency or list of the names of the working group that created Bitcoin, we will not disturb it (them) in the future, and to fully preserve the integrity of his personality.

In that case, if raising funds on the international search for Satoshi Nakamoto will be completed in full, we will sign contracts with agencies of these countries. The Agency will conduct before the customer public report on its activities every three days. We, in turn, will broadcast information about the development of the investigation on different continents in the “news” section and our social networks. Will not be published of only the sensitive part, which may interfere with the investigation.

Currently selected the best in our opinion of the detective Agency in the above countries. With them held preliminary talks and obtained the consent to start work.

  • Detective Agency in Japan: Goro lift staff at Kayama
  • Detective Agency USA: New York Intelligence Agency, Inc
  • International detective Agency UK Private Detective London
  • Russian-French Agency: “Osoby”

The funds will be distributed among them in equal shares. In addition, the saved will be a bonus for the Agency have achieved the final positive outcome of the investigation.

It should be noted that on the first day of fundraising has paid $ 30 000, corresponding to $ 236 000 (15 million rubles), today the amount is over 3 million from 691 investor. Very questionable initiative, in our view. Bulgaria also has a huge reserve of Bitcoins, but to “drain” the Bulgarian cryptocurrency assets somehow no one cares. We wish Satoshi stay away from these enthusiasts.

What does the CIA have on the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto?

Motherboard reports that the Central intelligence Agency (CIA) responded to an inquiry about whether it had data about the identity of the Creator of Bitcoin.

Daniel Oberhaus, primarily concerned with questions of physics, space, cryptocurrency and energy, filed a request, in accordance with the Act on Freedom of Information in the Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI) and the CIA, which requested information about the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto.

The oberhaus reported that his request to the FBI is still in operation, but the CIA has already provided the answer in American journalistic practice called “the answer Glomar”. This particular formulation, which does not deny nor confirm the existence of the requested information and, in effect, means care to answer.

The request was rejected. The Agency said they can neither confirm nor deny the existence of the requested documents.

The oberhaus also noted that “the answer Glomar” often used by the CIA and quoted the first tweet of the Agency in June 2014:

The question of the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto is one of the biggest mysteries in the world of cryptocurrency.

The first attempt to reveal the identity of Satoshi is dated October 2011, just a few months after Satoshi has withdrawn from participation in the work on the cryptocurrency. Joshua Davis then wrote an article for The New Yorker, which suggested that Nakamoto is Willie lehdonvirta of a Finnish scientist who works at Helsinki Institute for information technology. Willie, eventually, denied that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, but added that even if it was him, he wouldn’t admit to it.

In 2014, Newsweek reported about the Japanese-American named Satoshi Nakamoto, who at that time lived in California and claimed that he is the Creator of bitcoin. However, after a lengthy investigation it turned out that he is not “real” Satoshi.

In 2016, Gizmodo published an article about Craig Wright, who publicly announced that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. Australian scientist and businessman has made many controversial statements throughout his career, however, definitively prove that he is the Creator of bitcoin never could.

Laszlo Geinitz: “Satoshi Nakamoto was an overbearing paranoid”

So far nothing really is known about the identity of the Creator of Bitcoin under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. Nakamoto disappeared from the Internet in April 2011, leaving behind only a thin trail of bread crumbs from emails he exchanged with early developers of Bitcoin, comments on online forums and the original White Paper.

Assumptions about the identity of Nakamoto abound, however, this is all conjecture, which only lead to a dead end. One of the developers of Bitcoin Laszlo Hanic guy bought two pizzas for 10,000 BTC, told Business Insider about his correspondence with Satoshi in 2010.

Their interaction started when Haniz that mainil bitcoins on his laptop, and has expressed interest in the development of online development of cryptocurrency. Nakamoto agreed and within a year sent Janicu tasks .

According to Haniza his Association with the Nakamoto has always been “strange”.

I understood that Bitcoin is fascinating and I wanted to participate, but I had a regular job. Nakamoto sent me emails like, ” Hey, can you fix this error?” “Hey, can you do it?”

Hanic told that it was working on a free Bitcoin, and Nakamoto treated him as a staffer.

“— We have a few bugs, — said Satoshi. — We have to deal with this.

We? — asked Laszlo. — We are not a work horse”

Heinitz several times wanted to say: “Hey, you’re not my boss”, but didn’t because he thought the collaboration with Satoshi something meaningful.

Also, according to Laszlo, Satoshi evaded answers to many questions.

Nakamoto seems to have been not too concerned about the development of mining. He concentrated on the community to get as many use cases for Bitcoin in trade. He fully realized that mining will bring true wealth not all users of the network.

Heinitz Satoshi wrote letters with questions and topics for discussion during the week. Nakamoto answered all.

“I assumed that he was busy working on other things,” said Heinitz.

Although Heinitz and Nakamoto worked on a busy, highly technical project together, Laszlo says that Nakamoto has always maintained a veil of anonymity, to such an extent that it has become a strange.

“He or she, or whoever it was, never told me anything personal. I asked a few questions, but he always shied away from them.”

The name Nakamoto of Heinitz, like many others, assumed that he speaks with a slightly eccentric person of Asian origin.

But there were a few letters in which Nakamoto was being paranoid.

“There were a few times when I got messages at all off-topic, but I didn’t pay any attention to them. Who cares what this guy told me to bring pound sand and fuck off? It was not my job, it was a hobby.”

Looking back, Heinitz recognizes that paranoia Nakamoto understood.

“If something happened with the code early on, we wouldn’t have this conversation today,” he said.

Heinitz used to communicate with the eccentric people over the Internet, but its interaction with Nakamoto called his “strange feelings”.

To summarize Laszlo admitted that he deeply respects the project Nakamoto, and the person or team behind the name. According to Haniza Bitcoin today would not, decide Satoshi to remain anonymous.

“It’s exciting because people love a good mystery, but I try to explain that it doesn’t matter who created Bitcoin, he could have at least a psychopathic killer. People like to label the heroes or a villain, but in cryptosphere your code should speak for itself. Charisma and inner world mean little if you’re a developer. Ultimately you will be judged on the quality of your code and your idea.”

In Kiev, the site of the Lenin monument, a monument to Satoshi Nakamoto

On the pedestal of Lenin

In Kiev may soon be a monument Satoshi Nakamoto. The project on creation of the monument to the unknown Creator of bitcoin and blockchain technology suggests that the monument will be installed at the intersection of Khreshchatyk and Taras Shevchenko Boulevard.

Earlier this place was a monument to Lenin, however, in 2013, his statue was destroyed during the mass protests.

Since then, the pedestal of the former monument was empty.

Project organizers plan to initially create a virtual monument that will be visible only through a special application, if you look at the monument with your smartphone. The implementation of the virtual memorial will be engaged in Ukrainian VR/AR company Raccoon World.

The organizers also intend to file a petition to the Kyiv city administration on the placement of the actual monument. Funds for the project realization it is planned to collect with the help of a crowdfunding company. At the same time, the virtual project of the statue was supported by the Ukrainian businessman Oleksandr Soroka, the founder of investment platform Startup Network, which has already donated 1 bitcoin (BTC).

Global initiative

The installation of the statue in Kiev is part of a global initiative for the erection of monuments Satoshi around the world and the creation of so-called “Republic of the Blockchain”. If city officials reject the petition, the authors of the project intend to look for another place for the monument.

Birthday Satoshi Nakamoto coincides with two important events in U.S. history: the obvious connection

April 5, 2018 – the date that bitcoin enthusiasts will remember as the birthday of the Creator of “cryptocurrency number 1” Satoshi Nakamoto. This day coincides with two rather important events in U.S. history.

The identity of Satoshi Nakamoto is shrouded in mystery. The only thing we know about him is information from his page on the website P2P Foundation, according to which yesterday, April 5, he was 43 years old.

In order to register for an account on the P2P Foundation website, you need to specify your date of birth. On page Satoshi Nakamoto this information is not public, but people around the world watched his account’s every day to know when to change his age. The result found out that Satoshi Nakamoto was born on 5 April 1975. This date brings together two important moments in American history.

April 5, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt issued an order that the possession of gold in the country will be “outside the law”. This meant the actual confiscation from the population and associations of gold,

in bullion and coins. This measure was designed to cope with the effects of the great depression. According to the Decree No. 6102 all U.S. citizens were required before may 1, 1933 in banks to exchange gold for paper money at a price of $ 20.66 per ounce. This, in 1934, followed by the law on the gold reserve of 1934, involving the confiscation of gold from banks. And only in 1975, the Americans returned the right to own gold.

There is a likelihood that on April 5, 1975 — not a real birthday Satoshi Nakamoto. But I think the Creator of Bitcoin has strengthened its intentions with crypto-currencies, choosing such a significant occasion. Indeed, many in the cryptocurrency community compares bitcoin with gold.

The fact that birthday on page Satoshi Nakamoto reflects two important dates, is not accidental. Supporters of Bitcoin believe that people have the opportunity to have a currency that is not under any centralized control, and thus largely protected against interference from the government.

However, the recent strict measures of China against cryptocurrency exchanges and serious restrictions and bans worldwide indicates that governments still exercise significant control over individual finances and can, if they wish to close access to crypto exchanges, mining and trading.

Embodied vision Satoshi Nakamoto in life — we have yet to see.
