Key Takeaways

  • Craig S. Wright has claimed two more Bitcoin addresses as part of his dubious efforts to be recognized as Satoshi Nakamoto.
  • One of those addresses holds BTC stolen from Mt. Gox, meaning that Wright has inadvertently tied himself to a crypto crime.
  • It is unlikely that Wright owns the address or the stolen funds.

Controversial Bitcoin figure Craig S. Wright has claimed ownership of two more Bitcoin addresses in his latest legal filing.

One of those addresses, widely known as the “1Feex” address, contains funds stolen from Mt. Gox in 2011.

Why Did Wright Claim Stolen Bitcoin?

Wright aims to prove that he is Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto, a highly dubious claim in and of itself.

As evidence, Wright often claims to own early Bitcoin addresses with substantial balances. The “1Feex” address with the stolen Mt. Gox funds meets both conditions, as it originally received funds in March 2011, and it currently has a balance of 79,900 BTC ($755 million).

Of course, by claiming that address, Craig S. Wright has also implicitly admitted to being involved in the Mt. Gox theft of 2011.

Wright’s letter makes no mention of Mt. Gox.

According to that letter, the “1Feex” address belongs to an address that is part of the Tulip Trust, a group of companies that allegedly control early Bitcoin funds.

Wright, naturally, intends to recover those funds.

Does Wright Own the Address?

It is improbable that Craigh S. Wright owns the “1Feex” address.

Wright has claimed hundreds of other Bitcoin addresses in the past, but other Bitcoin users have come forward to prove ownership of those addresses by signing messages with their keys.

Cred - Safe and sound

In today’s letter, Wright claims that he lost the keys to the “1Feex” address during a theft in February. This means that he cannot sign messages or transfer money from the Bitcoin address—while a supposed thief would have the ability to do so.

There is no evidence that anyone stole the address from Wright, but his argument does shift the burden of proof in a different direction.

Is Craig Wright Unstoppable?

The fact that Wright has accidentally tied himself to a crime will damage his already abysmal reputation within the crypto community.

However, that does not necessarily mean that the news will have any impact on any court cases that he is involved in, or that it will prevent him from attempting to file future lawsuits.

Some commentators have suggested suing Wright for claiming to own stolen funds, but it isn’t clear that doing so would be practical.

Though Wright’s past legal cases have not ended in his favor, he has not shown an interest in backing down—meaning that this controversy could continue for years to come.

Bitcoin-Themed NFT Card Set Launches On Anniversary Of Satoshi’s White Paper

Bitcoin Origins, a series of non-fungible tokens based on the history of Bitcoin, will officially launch on October 31 at 10:31 AM PT. With the goal of creating awareness about Bitcoin, the highly scarce NFT collection will highlight the most significant moments in Bitcoin’s history. Bitcoin Origins has partnered with amazing artists to recreate at least 15 moments in Bitcoin history. Today marks the release of Moment 1, the Whitepaper Creation, with more to come.

“Bitcoin and every other crypto has a marketing problem,” said Jeremy Born, CEO of CoinGenius and co-founder of Bitcoin Origins. “NFTs are a way to solve that and help push the mass adoption of Bitcoin. We’ve created unique artistic assets with an educational dimension to arm people with the knowledge about why bitcoin was created, why it exists, and why it will thrive and flourish.”

When it comes to Bitcoin Origins, it’s all there: Satoshi’s whitepaper, the genesis block––you name it. Each moment will be a little bit different. Each new card will be released as its own block. The first release is a 1MB block containing one card and the chance of receiving a bonus “Death Card,” which pays homage to the exaggerated reports of Bitcoin’s demise. There will also be 2MB and 4MB blocks for purchase which will become available once the 1MB block is fully mined (sold out).

Paul Jenkins saw the potential in Bitcoin and artwork surrounding the world’s first digital currency, and so he joined the Bitcoin Origins team. Jenkins, who shaped many of the characters which helped lift Marvel Comics from Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, sees NFTs as a new medium for storytelling.

“Bitcoin Origin is not just a history of Bitcoin––it’s a game,” said Jenkins. And the value is in the community. That is what made Bitcoin work: the value was in people’s perception of it. With Bitcoin Origins and NFT, we’re breaking new ground. There are new ways we can tell stories, and NFTs are a new form of storytelling.”

Said Born: “This is about the artistic nature of the piece. People hold these at high value, because it is a very scarce and limited set and is truly like holding a piece of Bitcoin history.”

Anyone can join the Bitcoin Origins story and play for free and receive a free NFT by simply filling out this form.

TRAMS DEX Propels Global Adoption of DeFi with Automated Market Maker (AMM) protocol

TRAMS DEX Propels Global Adoption of Defi with Automated Market Maker (AMM) protocol, as Industry Leader VIP Guests, Global Participants, and Management Team concludes Webinar Session Marking a Successful First-Phase Launch.

 

VIP Speakers Unanimously Acknowledge Perfect Market Timing of TRAMS DEX in Decentralized Finance Industry, High Industry Growth Factors, Following 2 Hour-Long Launch Session.

The TRAMS DEX founder and senior management team today concluded a high-impact webinar session as an official launch of its Automated Liquidity Provider protocol, the first of three phases for TRAMS’ Decentralized Finance Business. Industry leader VIP guests and participating members pledge support for open finance and Defi for creating more access to financial products at much lower costs to anyone on demand.

The launch took place in District Singapore, Republic Plaza 9 Raffles Place with a Zoom Webinar hosting a global Defi community and TRAMS DEX protocol members/users community. The discerning VIP panels and participants from ranging continents stencil the much-needed change in the financial sector especially in traditional banking plagued with corruption and scandals where only a small closed and selected groups are the main beneficiaries.

The webinar introduces the protocol with its open finance principles and guides participants into the operations with these key points: TRAMS DEX is one of three key operations from the TRAMS ecosystem with the main operating principle of Decentralized Finance (Defi). TRAMS DEX is an Automated Liquidity Provider that enables better and faster user interactions with digital assets. With the innovation of the Automated Market Maker (AMM) solution, traders can easily exchange digital assets at any time with guaranteed market supplies from the liquidity pool without giving up the custody of their digital assets. As a decentralized exchange, TRAMS DEX is able to create open access opportunities for participation without discrimination and any controlling institution barrier.

At TRAMS.io, anyone with an Internet connection and a Web 3.0 wallet can gain access to liquidity where otherwise would be ineligible through traditional finance or banking. TRAMS DEX operates a Decentralized Exchange that offers three (3) impactful functions with a minimal user interface designed for clear navigation.

The first function, global liquidity access or buyable, sellable, or tradable market access. Users of the protocol can easily gain access to “constant” liquidity with a simple crypto assets swap function at a minimal cost of 0.3% transaction fee. Direct wallet connections are automated as well with a few simple clicks. All transactions are secured with blockchain encryptions and conducted on-chain with transaction data records automatically recorded for open access viewing on Ether can in real-time.

The second function, make money from idle assets. TRAMS DEX creates a money-making model for liquidity providers (LPs) on the platform. By supplying idle crypto assets to any pools listed on the protocol, the LP earns a profit share generated from the swapping fees on TRAMS DEX. The liquidity provider profit sharing is proportional to contribution. Profits are calculated at least once every twenty-four hours (24 hrs). True to open finance principles and Defi, participating LPs can withdraw their contribution at any time without any fee or penalty.

Thirdly, earn a high passive income. The TRAMS DEX incentive model lets participants earn high passive income in the form of yields, calculated in APY% (annual percentage yield), simply by staking (or depositing) its native token (TRAMS) on the platform. This encourages participants to remain active on the platform and better maintains constant liquidity reserve. This translates to double benefits for participating LPs, more profits are added on-top of the profit-sharing earning from staking LP tokens on TRAMS DEX.

TRAMS DEX is accessible constantly 24/7 to anyone globally. All associated costs of operations are kept very low and precise by utilizing automated smart contracts and AMM trading algorithms for trade executions and operations. Compared to traditional financial institutions and banks, TRAMS DEX provides better, cheaper, more accurate services.

Bryan Feinberg of Plato Data Intelligence, the Founder/CEO of Etheralabs, commented from New York City via Zoom video call with the support of blockchain as the fundamental architecture of TRAMS DEX and Defi space which offers high data security and transaction transparency for users. As a member of the Blockchain Venture Advisory, he believes Decentralized Finance such as TRAMS DEX has a high adoption rate and direct use case for blockchain applications.

Mamadou Toure, Forbes 10 Most Influential person in Africa and President/CEO of Ubuntu Capital Group, tributes TRAMS DEX for providing access channel to liquidity where traditional banking and capital access are limited to non-existent. He further acknowledged the opportunities TRAMS DEX would create for users world-wide to easily finance business initiatives.

Victor Kong, CEO of VK Capital Digital Funds Pte Ltd endorses William Tien, TRAMS DEX’ Founder/CEO, for his vision and ambition in creating a Decentralized Ecosystem starting with TRAMS DEX following by TRAMS Finance and TRAMS Assets, for phase 2 & 3, respectively, as an alternative to private equity funds for real estates and infrastructure projects with a portfolio size of 1-10 million USD. TRAMS DEX removes the high barrier to entry by drastically reducing mandatory due diligence costs of raising capital, which remains the same as a 50 million USD project. He also credits the intention of listing the ecosystem, TRAMS DEX included, on the London Stock Exchange via reverse IPO within 3-6 months.
