By CCN: In a rare foray into editorial writing, Bitcoin developer Jameson Lopp has dismantled Craig Wright’s Satoshi claims, one by one. “How Many Wrongs Make a Wright?” should be bookmarked in the browser of any cryptocurrency enthusiast. It’s as a master list of reasons not to believe Craig Wright’s claim that he is Satoshi Nakamoto.
Lopp Finally Gives a Peek At Wright Research
Lopp uncharacteristically chose to publish the piece in Bitcoin Magazine, as opposed to his Medium blog.

As such, Wright appears to maintain a sleep schedule consistent with someone living in the AEST time zone (Australia) while Satoshi maintains a sleep schedule consistent with the EST time zone (North American east coast and part of South American west coast). While it’s possible that Wright was meticulously maintaining two separate schedules for each…
