At a conference that took place earlier this year, Dr Craig Wright (CSW), who believes himself to be the original Bitcoin creator, said a few things that made the crypto Twitter laugh.

Despite the doubtful reputation that CSW has quickly acquired in the crypto community, his brainchild Bitcoin Cash SV (BSV) remains in the top ten coin list on CoinMarketCap.

The project lead at Monero, Riccardo Spagni, has retweeted a video clip, in which Craig Wright reveals some details about himself to the audience at the conference.

Kissing Jim Morrison

On the video, CSW says that back in the nineties he went to a lot of parties that he would rather forget about. Talking about one of them, he says he once even kissed Jim Morrison, presumably, the leader of the iconic rock band the Doors.

Jim Morrison died back in 1971 on July 3. However, CSW insists he kissed the rock star about 10-20 years ago.

Working 27 hours a day

Another thing Craig Wright mentioned to the audience from the stage is that there are 27 hours in a day. That comes slightly against what everyone is taught at school. At least, the Vatican seems to agree with the official science on this piece of common knowledge.

However, on the video you can see that before uttering ’27 hours a day’, CSW takes a brief pause, as if quickly thinking it over and then publicly makes the mistake (whether it was deliberate or not).

The community responds

The comment thread was full of sarcastic comments on both phrases – about Jim Morrison and the 27-hour day.

Some pointed out that perhaps a 27-hour day explains how Dr Craig Wright has become so efficient at work.

    Bitcoin could hit a new all-time high with network fees exceeding $100 in 2020, according to Blockchain Capital

Blockchain Capital's Spencer Bogart has recently published a list of 2020 predictions for cryptocurrency predictions. The most remarkable one concerns Bitcoin fees that are expected to surpass $100 next year due to the growing demand for transactions.

Back in December 2017, during the heyday of crypto, the average Bitcoin transaction fee increased to $55. As of Dec. 12, 2018, it is just at $0.52, BitInfoCharts data shows.

Bitcoin blast past a new all-time high 

According to Blockchain Capital, Bitcoin is set to experience another price rally in 2020 that could push its price above the current all-time high of $20,000. However, it is very unlikely to touch reach $1 mln (sorry, John McAfee).  

The crypto community expects the BTC price to skyrocket because of the upcoming halvening after the enormous returns of the previous two events. This time around, the reward for each mined coins will be decreased to just 6.25 coins. 

As reported by U.Today, the famous stock-to-flow model, which measures the coin's value by determining its scarcity, would be invalidated if Bitcoin didn't surge past the $100,000 mark before December 2021.

Privacy coins get delisted 

In the meantime, Blockchain Capital suggests that 2020 is going to be a tough year for stablecoins. Major exchanges could be forced to delist the likes of Monero (XMR), Zcash (ZEC), and other anonymous cryptocurrencies due to growing regulatory pressure. 

The writing is already on the wall. ZEC, which recently reached a new all-time low, was delisted from Coinbase UK back in August. In October, OKEx Korea moved to delist all major privacy coins but later decided to review its decision.
