Craig Wright has officially changed his nationality, claiming he’s no longer an Australian.
In a filed application to claim the authorship of Bitcoin whitepaper and source codes, the creator of Bitcoin SV, Craig Wright, for unknown reason, denounce being a citizen of Australia as known by everyone, instead claimed to be an Antiguan and Barbudan.
The Australian computer scientist is looking for ways to completely gain recognition as the real Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto.
Wright was bread and buttered in Australia where he attended Padua College in Brisbane, Australia and Charles Sturt University, where he got two Master’s Degree and a PhD.
While he’s battling the claim at the court of Law, Craig Wright has been granted U.S. copyright as the author of Bitcoin whitepaper and source codes.
Cryptocurrency experts like John McAfee are claiming the 49 year old computer programmer is not the creator of Bitcoin.
McAfee, who claims to know the identity of Bitcoin’s real creator, decided not to mention the author for fear of extradition and because the real Satoshi won’t be happy if his identity is disclosed at the moment.
