BREAKING: Craig Wright Copyrights Bitcoin White Paper

BREAKING: Craig Wright Copyrights Bitcoin White Paper

Since the beginning of May, the Bitcoin rate has risen by about 40%. However, its current value is still far from the record mark that the cryptocurrency reached in December 2017.

In terms of important fundamental factors, on May 20, 2020, the next Bitcoin halving (BTC) will occur, reducing the remuneration of miners by half. This process can have a significant impact on the price of the cryptocurrency.

This will be the third halving on the Bitcoin blockchain: the first one took place in 2012, reducing the reward for each mined block from 50 to 25 BTC, while the second decreased the award to 12.5 BTC.

What is more, the number of blockchain wallets has increased by almost 35% (to 38 million units) since May 2018, despite the prolonged drop in the market. If the current dynamics continue, their number will approach the critical level of 50 million units by the end of the year, which will allow Bitcoin to rise in price to $10,000.

Regarding the technical part, the situation looks the following way.

Our BTC prediction made yesterday is coming true, as the quotes are looking upwards to the levels above $8,000. However, one should not wait for a quick bull run to $8,500, as there are no prerequisites for that. Neither MACD nor the RSI indicator show strength.

If Bitcoin Price Hits $8,300 Can It Repeat History and Reach $20,000 in the Next 13 Days?

Taking it into consideration, BTC can touch the $8,200 mark, which is supposed to be the highest peak of the current week. A confirmation for that is the decreasing BTC market share, which has recently fallen by more than 4%.

The price of BTC is trading at $7,897 at the time of writing.

Self-proclaimed Satoshi Craig Wright is an odious figure within the cryptocurrency space with very few big-name supporters apart from gambling tycoon Calvin Ayre. 

However, there is one reputable voice that doesn't want to automatically dismiss Craig Wright's claims -- Bobby Lee, the creator of China's very first cryptocurrency exchange BTCC.

According to Lee's recent tweet, he doesn't rule out the possibility that Craig Wright could be the real Satoshi, but the Australian entrepreneur has to come forward with further proof. However, he claims that Jon Matonis of Cypherpunk Holdings saw Wright signing a transaction with real private keys. 

Wright came out as the creator of Bitcoin back in May 2016 with major media organizations quickly picking up the story. Multiple prominent crypto figures, including Gavin Andresen and Jon Matonis, confirmed the validity of his claims.

Together with business partner Dave Kleiman, he supposedly created Bitcoin, the first cryptocurrency, but Wright wanted to be regarded as the only Satoshi after Kleiman's death. He even went to extreme lengths by threatening random Twitter users with legal actions over calling him a fraud.      

Back in 2018, Ira Kleiman, the brother of the late computer forensics expert Dave Kleiman, sued Wright and ended up winning the long-lasting court battle. However, the nChain chief appears not to have access to half of the 1.1 mln BTC he mined together with Kleiman to finance the settlement.
