Kevin Healy: Why I Believe Craig Wright is Satoshi

Dr. Craig S. Wright is the inventor of Bitcoin, the man behind the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, who is the author of the original Bitcoin whitepaper. Despite significant evidence to back up this reality, some members of the broader digital currency community have asked for more evidence to back up the claims made by Bitcoin’s founding father.

California-based programmer and investor Kevin Healy has set himself the goal of dispelling the myths surrounding Satoshi Nakamoto and explaining why he was Dr. Wright’s claim to be the founder of Bitcoin is true and knows.

As a starting point, Kevin Healy is primarily known for his Ethereum-based content, which of course contradicts Dr. Craig Wright and his claim to be the inventor of Bitcoin. The pioneer of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, has publicly addressed Dr. Wright doubted, a view often repeated by his followers within the Ethereum community. Despite Healy’s pre-existing involvement with the Ethereum community, he remains determined that the evidence will only bring Dr. Support Wright as the true Satoshi.

Despite the controversy, Healy notes that BSV’s unlimited possibilities pave the way for “some really cool stuff” and a vision of Bitcoin in line with Dr. Craig Wright’s original white paper. Faced with a personal backlash, Healy explains the sweeping case on his YouTube video: “Why I Believe Craig Wright is Satoshi.”

Healy charts back for the first time when Dr. Wright admitted to being the inventor of Bitcoin in a video for BBC News in 2016. At this point, Dr. Wright already had an established presence in the Bitcoin world after giving a number of high profile conversations about Bitcoin and digital currency – although he was kept informed of his role in the original development.

Healy describes these early interviews as “very informative” and a clear sign of Dr. Wright’s inside knowledge of how Bitcoin works and how it is formed.

In an interview for the Bitcoin Doco project in July 2014, Dr. Wright asked if he had bought or sold Bitcoin and what the price was at the time of his purchase. There was no price.

Healy says that “awkward encounters” like this one Dr. Wright gives the camera a wry smile, scattered in these early videos years before Dr. Wright’s first public claim to be the founder of Bitcoin.

But beyond those little details, Healy says, Dr. Wright had a very deep understanding of Bitcoin and a profound vision of its future that went well beyond that of his contemporaries at the time. In these early videos, Dr. Wright already the possibilities of Bitcoin, which are only realized today – about seven years later – via Bitcoin SV.

At that time, Dr. Wright actually set up a 20-30 year vision for the development of Bitcoin, something Healy believes would not be possible for someone with only an occasional interest in the technology.

By 2015, Craig Wright challenged the emerging view that Ethereum would enable new opportunities with blockchain via smart contracts, arguing that Bitcoin could already do those functions, and the people who assume they just don’t understand the technology otherwise would have. Again, video footage shows how Dr. Wright speaks from a position of superior knowledge compared to other commentators, which is reflected in authoritative and insightful responses well beyond the standard of his peers – views that were described as “unconventional” by other EU experts at the time, which have since been confirmed.

By December 2015, mainstream blogs and news sources took Dr. Wright topped Satoshi before reluctantly getting admitted to BBC News in 2016.

Healy notes that Dr. Wright felt compelled to come forward due to threats against his family and community colleagues, but reluctantly did so, telling the BBC that he would “prefer to be kept secret” and that people “chose me.” by making life difficult for his friends, family and co-workers.

When Dr. Wright is challenged at an event in 2017 about his role in formulating Bitcoin, he responds with a passionate response that his desire is not to achieve the glory of a Satoshi but rather to destroy the concept of a single leader in the Bitcoin community. Instead, the community or market decides the best ideas for Bitcoin, and in many ways the original founder is irrelevant to that.

Another challenge came from Vitalik Buterin, who said Dr. Wright was “probably not” Satoshi because there were easy ways to undeniably verify his identity, which Dr. Wright had avoided – which meant he couldn’t easily check them out instead of choosing a “Loud Path.”

As Healy notes, Dr. Wright, however, has been shown to be very reluctant to step forward as Satoshi, which is in line with his more private disclosure to select individuals.

Healy says he did the work of Dr. Wright has continued to pursue his claims of being the original Bitcoin founder ever since. Over time, Healy has moved away from Ethereum as his trust in Dr. Craig Wright and Bitcoin SV has grown.

Healy notes that Dr. Wright has more recently changed direction to be more open about his role in creating Bitcoin. While this has continued to cause controversy in some online sub-communities, Healy remains convinced of the overwhelming amount of evidence suggesting that Dr. Wright, as he claims, is the original Satoshi Nakamoto.
