Bitcoin whitepaper copyright registration was filed earlier today by the self-proclaimed creator of Bitcoin Craig Wright. He also filed registration for the Bitcoin code with the US Copyright Office and we are reading more about in the latest cryptocurrency news today.
In his attempt to prove that he is the real creator of Bitcoin, Wright filed the copyright registration. Since 2015, he continuously claimed that he is the real Satoshi Nakamoto but he was not able to provide any hard evidence. The Bitcoin SV proponent was asked to provide a list of Bitcoin addresses by the court in order to back up his claims.
Wright filed the bitcoin whitepaper copyright registrations for the 0.1 version of the early software of the cryptocurrency. In the text below you can read the two registrations in full:
‘’U.S. copyright registration no. TXu 2-136-996, effective date April 11, 2019, for the paper entitled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System, with year of completion 2008. The registration recognizes the author as Craig Steven Wright, using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.’’
‘’U.S. copyright registration no. TX-8-708-058, effective date April 13, 2019, for computer program entitled Bitcoin, with year of completion 2009 and date of first publication January 3, 2009. The registration recognizes the author as Craig Steven Wright, using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. Wright wrote most of version 0.1 of the Bitcoin client software, and the registration covers the portions he authored.’’
However, according to the executive director of Coincenter Jerry Brito, anyone can register a copyright claim. This does not prove the ownership by the US Copyright Office itself. The registration is just a formality. The CO does not look into the validity of the claim but they simply register it. Unfortunately, there is no way to challenge that registration since the Office will just register each one.
Many in the community believe that Wright is not the real creator of Bitcoin. Some of the largest industry players have called him a fraud and gave him the nickname ‘’Faketoshi.’’ Wright launched a series of lawsuits as reported in our altcoin news against all of those who called him a fraud.
The copyright registration will be the new weapon for Wright to support his claim to the name Satoshi.

Brokerage Giant TP ICAP Opens Its Doors To Bitcoin Trading
“We want to be close to what’s happening within this nascent asset class because we believe it’s important to invest in the early stages of a growing market.”The brokerage giant TP ICAP hopes that the new bitcoin trading option will attract the new clients’ money and will diversify its offering. The company which operates as an intermediary to financial, commodity and energy markets has seen a slight slump in revenue since the 2008 meltdown. Brokerage companies like ICAP mainly make trades for its banking partners but the volumes show that the company was forced to issue a profit warning in 2018. The initiative will be conducted from London by Duncan Trenholme and Simon Forster who have plans to expand in the United States and in Asia. The ICAP services will provide derivatives trading but they won’t turn their eyes from the option to hold digital assets directly in the future. Forster admitted that the number one cryptocurrency poses a threat to traditional assets so the finance executives can’t really afford to stand on the sidelines:
“TP ICAP also understands that this technology could disrupt or impact other asset classes where we currently operate, so we feel it’s important to be informed.”The traditional finance firms are slowly getting into crypto as well. At the start of the year, Fidelity launched bitcoin custody services for their clients. The multi-million asset management company will also facilitate bitcoin trading in the upcoming months. Also as noted in some of the best cryptocurrency news sites, the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), which is the parent company of the New York Stock Exchange is preparing to launch Bakkt which is a physically-settled bitcoin futures and custody offering. In the meantime, Nasdaq will launch its own platform for bitcoin derivatives in 2019.
Bitcoin Ignores Correction Calls: Where Is BTC Headed?
“$BTC – found resistance right at the lower cloud and has opened the weekly candle inside the cloud. This represents the highest time frame that #bitcoin has breached into the cloud…with resistance at just above $10K…”An analyst named Chonis Trading then took to Twitter with the following statement: https://twitter.com/BigChonis/status/1140410183665049603 He also added:
“One more step up the mountain as #bitcoin hits right at the 38.2% fib resistance making it the next target for the bulls to close over and also makes maintaining the 23.6 fib support that much more important for overall continuation…”As Bitcoin ignores correction calls, many believe that the $10,000 mark could be achieved very soon.
