Bogota Grants Craig Wright’s ‘Satoshi’ Wish
Officials in Bogota presented Wright with a fancy certificate affirming him as the creator of bitcoin. The events unfolded at the 2019 Expo-Bitcoin International in Bogota, a week-long crypto conference.
Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and Jimmy Nguyen, nChain’s CEO, both attended the conference, where they discussed how Latin Americans could use cryptocurrencies to improve their economies. Notably, Wright discussed “bitcoin and the law.”
Certificate: Wright Is Recognized as the Creator of Bitcoin
Nguyen shared Twitter photos of Wright showing off the certificate that proclaimed him bitcoin inventor Satoshi Nakamoto.
“Muchas gracias, Concejo de Bogota. Thank you Bogota Council for having Craig Wright speak today about Bitcoin and law, and for the nice honor.”
That said, Colombia is a tiny crypto market, and the majority of the international cryptocurrency industry do not accept Wright as Satoshi.
The certificate was signed by Nelly Mosquera, the president of the Council of Bogota, and local councilman Julio Acosta.
The document declares that “Dr. Craig Steven Wright, most commonly known as Satoshi Nakamoto, is world-recognized as the creator of Bitcoin.”
The certificate further claims that Wright has several advanced degrees, including a Ph.D. in computer science and a doctorate in theology.
