It’s been a wild week in cryptocurrency land like a large area of the community viewed the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network split up into two chains on November. 15. Following a 24 hrs from the BCH hash war, a fascinating message was discovered stemming from block height 9 that claims there’s an “issue with Segwit.” Obviously, a couple of cryptocurrency developers have once more considered the most recent Satoshi signature as “fake” and also have described the new message was likely another fluke attempt by Craig Wright.
Throughout the second day’s the BCH hash war, a couple of cryptocurrency enthusiasts discovered a note that made an appearance to become a valid signature for Satoshi’s type in block 9. The address contained a note which cautioned of some difficulties with the Segwit protocol around the BTC chain. In addition, who owns Coingeek, Calvin Ayre, tweeted to his supporters a little statement regarding the block 9 key signature and mentioned that “Satoshi Lives.” Ayre also retweeted the content from the Twitter account known as “@Satoshi” which brought to some couple of other tweets concerning the message.
“I don’t want to be public, but, there’s a problem with Segwit,” explains the signed message and also the tweet in the now deleted, but archived Satoshi handle. “If it’s not fixed, you will see nothing and that i might have unsuccessful — There’s just one method in which Bitcoin survives and it’s important in my experience it works. Important enough, which i might be known freely.”
The Satoshi Twitter handle also tweeted a note over the social networking platform that stated:
The content is going to be obvious in December, 2019.
The majority of the cryptocurrency community believes the signed message is simply another unsuccessful attempt by Craig Wright.
With all of that’s happening within the BCH community and particularly Craig Wright, many observers believe the signature comes from him. Obviously, a sizable majority think it is only a PR stunt from Wright and company and rapidly disregarded the content.
However, many individuals required a closer inspection in the message and agreed it likely produced from Wright and however the signature was still being phony. For example, the CTO of Purse, Christopher Jeffrey, detailed the message made an appearance to become a valid signature from Satoshi’s type in block 9 but further mentioned that “anyone can mutate a hash for any valid ecdsa signature to make a apparently ‘new’ signature/message.” Jeffrey further stated he along with a friend had a good time creating fake Satoshi signatures previously. “Looks like another unsuccessful attempt from Craig Wright if I needed to guess,” described the Purse developer.
Additionally to Jeffrey’s statements, the BTC developer Gregory Maxwell showed the Reddit community on r/btc how easily the fake signature message can be achieved. Jeffrey further described on Reddit he had lengthy suspected that Craig would attempt this kind of stunt. Overall, the majority of the BCH community people across social networking channels like Twitter and Reddit didn’t appear to consider the most recent Satoshi message was legitimate. Craig Wright did react to a Twitter handle known as @Checksum0 who tweeted concerning the message throughout the day and stated, “No, that’s bamboozled — The final time that it was spent from that address is 2009.”
