XRP Lawyer Questions Craig Wright’s Claims As Satoshi Nakamoto

The ongoing saga surrounding Australian computer scientist Craig Wright, who claims to be the inventor of Bitcoin, appears to be unraveling. Recent developments indicate that Wright’s remaining allies are distancing themselves from his controversial assertions.

Associates’ Departures and Doubts

One of the most significant blows came when Christen Ager-Hanssen, the former Group CEO at nChain Global, publicly announced his departure from the organization. Ager-Hanssen’s departure not only shed light on internal conflicts within nChain but also raised doubts about Wright’s claim to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin.

Ager-Hanssen’s departure was punctuated by a statement on social media, in which he expressed his conviction that Craig Wright is not Satoshi Nakamoto. He also alleged that Wright had manipulated documents to deceive the court, a serious accusation that further tarnished Wright’s credibility.

In a leaked email allegedly from Calvin Ayre, another prominent supporter and financier of Craig Wright’s endeavors, Ayre voiced deep skepticism and dissatisfaction with Wright’s legal disputes and the authenticity of his claims. Ayre expressed concern over the ongoing litigation, emphasizing that Wright needed to sign the Bitcoin mined by Satoshi Nakamoto for the COPA court case to succeed. Failure to do so, Ayre suggested, would result in him withdrawing his support and funding for Wright’s legal battles.

XRP lawyer Deaton Weighs In

The unfolding drama has drawn attention from notable figures in the cryptocurrency community. On Tuesday, pro-Ripple lawyer John Deaton also weighed in on Twitter, expressing his own doubts about Wright’s claims. Deaton highlighted the complexity of the Satoshi Nakamoto mystery and the various individuals who have been suspected of being Satoshi over the years.

“Even though I’ve suspected he was involved or in the know about Satoshi, “I’ve always believed CSW did not have the keys because he has too explosive of a personality” Deaton tweeted.

He would’ve moved/sold the coins by now just to cause chaos IMO. He threatened to do it 2015. But, then again, I’m speculating like everyone else.” He went on.

That said, while the exact outcome of this rift remains uncertain, it marks a significant moment in the ongoing debate and court case about Craig Wright’s identity as Satoshi Nakamoto and the broader implications for the cryptocurrency space.
