New research affirms Craig Wright isn’t Satoshi Nakamoto based off location data

Prominent cryptocurrency researchers joined forces and uncovered compelling evidence that Craig Wright isn’t Satoshi Nakamoto. By comparing Satoshi’ IP address and Wright’ own testimony about his whereabouts at the beginning of 2009, researchers found that the two were at the opposite sides of the globe at the time.

Craig Wright unwittingly he is not Satoshi Nakamoto

The saga of Craig Wright, one of the most controversial figures in the industry, shows no signs of stopping. And while outrageous claims coming from Wright aren’t exactly news, it now seems that one of his claims will become of the strongest evidence against him.

In a Medium post from Apr. 6, Wright wrote about the start of his alleged involvement with . He wrote, in detail, about the setup he used to run Bitcoin nodes, as well as the number of machines he used and where he kept them.

Wright further wrote:

“In my ranch that I used to own in Bagnoo, Australia, I converted part of my shed and home to run computers. In my house outside of Sydney, I took my garage and ran racks of machines.”

He noted that he traveled to his farm both on Jan. 3, when the genesis block is dated, and on Jan. 9, when the first block was mined.

However, previous has shown that Satoshi Nakamoto‘s location at that time was not in Australia, as Wright’s was, but in California.

Old research puts Satoshi Nakamoto in California

Twitter user Bounty Hunter, who is widely thought to be the best authority on the matter, was the first one to pinpoint Satoshi Nakamoto’s exact location. In his 2016 blog post, the researcher revealed two IP addresses used to send and receive Bitcoins on Jan. 10, 2009.

As the only two people working on the project at that time were Hal Finney, Bitcoin’s earliest contributor, and Satoshi Nakamoto, it was relatively easy to determine which one of those belonged to Satoshi.

The IP address showed that, at the time, Satoshi was in Van Nuys, California. SeekingSatoshi, a well-known crypto researcher on Twitter, asserted that the address wasn’t associated with a VPN or a TOR exit node.

As the researcher pointed out, metadata from various versions of the Bitcoin Whitepaper has revealed the timezone in which Satoshi Nakamoto operated. Analysis of the times and frequency of his online activity revealed that he was living in the U.S., and could have been either a student or a teacher.

There is currently no evidence that suggests Wright traveled to the U.S. at the time when Satoshi was active online. However, none of this was apparently enough to convince his legion of fans, many of whom have commented on SeekingSatoshi’s thread disputing his findings.

GaTech Research on Crypto Investment Behavior: Results and Follow Up Survey

Hey r/CryptoCurrency!

I’m doing on behalf of the Georgia Institute of Technology Create-X Program, and my focus is on investor behavior in cryptocurrencies.

A week ago, I posted this survey in several cryptocurrency subreddits and daily discussions, and I received over 200 responses! Thank you so much for your support. This ~5 min initial survey is still open and I ask that you please take it if you haven’t already done so.

For the next part of my research, I’m diving deeper into market demographics and looking to gain more insights into your investment behavior. Here’ the follow-up survey (~3 mins). I would appreciate it if you could take this survey as well.

Results:

Please don’t view these results until you’ve taken both surveys. Viewing the results before taking the survey will introduce bias.

Here are the results for the first survey. I will post the results to both surveys and in an analysis post in one week, along with graphs and other visualizations.

Thanks so much for your time!
