Craig Wright’s attempt to reveal the origin behind the name Satoshi Nakamoto
Craig Wright, serial forger, fantasist, and the world’s most famous Faketoshi, are back. The lawsuit of Kleiman v. Wright continued at the plaintiff’s request to Judge Reinhart, asking him to overrule Craig Wright’s recent objections. Wright has also requested any documents tied to Margar Kleiman’s real estate transactions, (brother Dave,) from April 1, 2013, to the present.

At the request of the court, Wright showed the public a timestamped document that seemed to indicate the origin of the name Satoshi Nakamoto. Satoshi Nakamoto revealed the pseudonym was the origin or at least holding a translucent print with some writing on it, in a Skype interview with a journalist.
The high-level lawsuit involving the family of Dave Kleiman and the self-proclaimed Bitcoin inventor Craig Wright continues to open until the end of 2019. After a brief mention of the journalist allegedly being dragged into the ongoing Kleiman lawsuit, the appropriate interview, starting with an investigation of how Wright is doing now. Not too bad, he answered, before casually visiting:
“I was just digging into old documents. Trying to find out what the terrible, terrible beginnings of bitcoin were.”
Classic Craig Wright! He went on to send a reference to (Scottish economist) Adam Smith, saying that Smith was lucky that all his notes were burnt after he died, leaving only the product was published to remember him.
We then received a painful embarrassment and not all of the conversations were scheduled, where the interviewer asked about a hilarious document of the person Keith Wright found. Craig Wright revealed that he has “the origin of where I chose the name Satoshi,” the interviewer pretended to be surprised, and asked him to “break the story for me.”
After applying on December 17, Wright conducted another candid interview with Modern Consensus. In the interview, Wright allegedly revealed the origin behind Satoshi Nakamoto’s work. He held up a piece of paper and told the Modern Consensus reporter that he was digging out old documents.
The document shows an JSTOR academic journal database editor about Tominaga Nakamoto from Monumenta Nipponica. The timestamp shows that the article was accessed on January 5, 2008 at 11.17 am, six months before the Bitcoin white paper was published.
Of course, any teenager with a computer can create a fake ID acceptable to modify their birthdates to whatever they want. But let’s assume that now Craig Wright has learned from his forged past and realizes that a certain ray of light is capable of checking whether the article was actually accessed at the time.
Nothing on the JSTOR access receipt gives any indication of who may have accessed the article, which is where Craig plays his trump card. His print has some handwritten notes; at least they are handwritten before the document goes through the fax machine. It’s not just coffee stains and rusty pins that can make a document look old, you know.
The first thing to be discovered is that the last two digits from the timestamp look like they’re forged. The complexity of his document fraud is very low; there seems to be very little thought or effort put into it. Wizsec security experts also tore off Wright’s latest addition to the document, when researchers explained that the cover was purposefully downloaded in 2008. However, the cover format displayed by Wright was only used from mid-2011 to early 2015. Wizsec also noticed the inconsistency of the awkward font in the timestamp edit.
In addition, Wizsec asked how Craig could know about obscure article unless he is actually Satoshi, but quickly pointed out that this article is easy to find when searching for historical Nakamotos photos using Google. The latest JSTOR academic paper that Wright revealed to the public has not affected the cryptocurrency community and researchers like Wizsec have concluded that the JSTOR document looks like Craig showing another bad fake.
