Altcoin News: Identity of the Second Contender for the Authorship of BTC White Paper — Revealed
As previously assumed, the registration for copyrights of Bitcoin’s white paper was filed by Wei Liu — a former employee of the exchange Bibox.
The man named Wei Liu was the CEO of the Marvelous Peach Capital crypto fund. It was he who appealed to the United States Copyright Office to report that in 2008 he wrote a work entitled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”.
As explained by Liu in a conversation with CoinDesk, he took this step to show that copyright in this context does not matter. Before him, the Australian businessman Craig Wright turned to the United States Copyright Office and wished to register the rights to the original documentation and the cryptocurrency code.
“I filed it just to let people know anyone can register copyright. Everyone can be Satoshi Nakamoto, ” Liu explained.
In the past, Liu was the operating director of the F2Pool pool, and he engaged with Bitcoin mining in 2011.
In social networks, Liu said that using his application, he tried to
“make fun of Craig Wright’s ‘cultist group’, whose members had previously claimed that only Wright could copyright Bitcoin’s white paper.”
