From 1993 to 2009 Bill Gates invested $1B+ into Encarta the online encyclopedia but was eventually crushed by Wikipedia. This should be a lesson for financial institutions trying to understand Bitcoin. Currently BTC is where Wikipedia was in the early 2000`s. Watch out banks.

Wikipedia Bitcoin page false info about Wright

I just see to Bitcoin Wikipedia page this

[quote]Craig Steven Wright has claimed to be the creator of bitcoin. Wright, named himself as the creator of bitcoin in a BBC news interview. Wright apparently proved his claim by using 'signature' bitcoins associated with its inventor. Wright said 'his admission is an effort to end speculation about the identity of the originator of the currency.' In December 2015, Wired and Gizmodo, magazines also named Wright as likely to be bitcoin's creator.[88][/quote]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin

this is completely false info and lure to misunderstanding. I dont know who are the editors of this article. The article is semi lock and i cannot edit. First Wright never sign a transaction. Second Gizmodo and Wired in the end and with new article announce that they have do mistake about wright claims. This hoaxer's name must remove from bitcoin wikipedia asap.

edit 1: it seems wikipedia page has corrected. It says now "Craig Steven Wright has claimed to be the creator of bitcoin in a BBC news interview in 2016.[131] He offered to prove this claim cryptographically several days later, without offering an explanation of the delay. The circumstantial proof he provided was picked apart by cryptography experts[132], with one describing it as "flimflam and hokum".[133]"

edit 2: i think we must remove completely the Wright name from wikipedia bitcoin page. He has nothing to do with bitcoin history, he is not part of it.
