Self-proclaimed bitcoin inventor Craig Wright took another step to cement his claim to the title of Satoshi Nakamoto. Today (Aug. 22), Wright uploaded the Bitcoin white paper to the SSRN, an academic research journal database.
When asked what prompted him to post the paper today, Wright told CCN that “I’ve already publicly admitted I am Satoshi. It is time to own my invention.”
On SSRN, Wright posted the white paper entitled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System.” The Australian crypto entrepreneur noted that he had written the report on Aug. 21, 2008.
