ZCoin and MOAC See Massive Surge in Wikipedia Page Views: Report

Dwindling interest for XRP?

The data shows that BTC enjoys an insurmountable lead over ETH with 296,653 and 46,144 views respectively. Bitcoin was among the top most popular pages on Wikipedia in 2017, but its popularity has drastically decreased due to the market rout. Surprisingly, XRP only comes in fourth place after outperforming Ethereum back in September. Basic Attention Token (BAT), which was nowhere to be seen on DataLight’s previous report, has managed to trump XRP, taking third place.

The meme coin is here to stay

Dogecoin (DOGE) hasn’t managed to keep its momentum (it was on the verge of surpassing Ethereum in September), but it still managed to crack today’s list. The ultimate meme coin has accumulated 15,945 views over the last month.

Other top 8 entries include Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Stellar (XML) and Litecoin (LTC).

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.

Bitcoin Price Is

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.
