The London High Court has given Craig Stephen Wright the green light to pursue a copyright infringement lawsuit against a publisher Bitcoin.org. Wright claims to be the original author of the bitcoin white paper saved on the site in question, which outlines the cryptocurrency technology.
The white paper was written in 2008 called Bitcoin: A peer-to-peer electronic cash system. It was composed under the pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto, whose identity has always been a subject of debate. Craig Wright claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto, but that is moot.
The same paper can be found on bitcoin.org, which is why Wright is pursuing the case against the site’s owners, even though who runs bitcoin.org is unknown, unlike what is known as “Cobra”.
Cobra responded to a letter from Wright’s attorney On Twitter in January, Along with a post on bitcoin.org explaining that Satoshi Nakamoto has a well-known PGP public key, and that if Wright wants to prove that he too is he can use this to do so.
Since the Supreme Court had allowed Wright to pursue the lawsuit, it is now up to Cobra to reveal their identity in order to defend the prosecution, otherwise the prosecution may fall in favor of Wright.
The bitcoin price soared to new heights this year, peaking at $ 63,000.
