Craig Wright: I will see you end in prison if you pretend to be Satoshi

Controversial Australian entrepreneur and Bitcoin SV proponent, Craig Wright has announced that he has taken it upon himself to hunt down everyone in the Bitcoin community who claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto in a bid to prove he's not a liar. 

In a follow-up to his recent Bitcoin manifesto, Wright promises to “clean out the cryptocurrency space whether you like it or not.” On this note, Wright states he will find anyone who claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto and prove they are Satoshi or apologize. He writes:  

“If you want to pretend to be Satoshi, I will see you end in prison […] I have a claim that I am Satoshi and that I created the white paper. It is potentially falsifiable and, if I lied, may be disproven […] I’ve made my claim under oath. I have sworn it in a court of law. If it turns out that I’m not, I will face 20 years in prison. The thing is, it will never happen, because I am the creator of Bitcoin. Alternatively, the way I’m going to clean up the space is to force every single person involved in the space to either swear they are Satoshi and created Bitcoin or back down and apologise.”

Additionally, Wright predicts Bitcoin will one day crash to zero. “People are going to wake up one day and not find that the value of their BTC investment is diminishing, but that it is zero,” he writes. "When such types of crime coins end, they don’t end slowly — they end in an instant.”

Furthermore, touching on the recent lawsuit with Peter McCormack, Wright promises to make an example of the “pitiful” podcaster:

“I’m going to take pitiful people like Peter [McCormack] apart, as sad as it is, because of their stupidity and as a lesson.”
