This video made me feel good about the nerds over at nChain. While every other coin is talking about circumventing the government, nChain is working with the government. Their approach is nuts and bolts, and that's what works in the long run. Nuts and bolts also work especially well in an environment where capital is expensive, such as the one we're entering.
Check out the comments made on this video. I've never seen such a high percentage of people understanding that CW is Satoshi. The world is starting to wake up boys!! A few more lawsuits like this and they'll be putting their money where their mouth is.
The funny thing about guys like Hodlonaut is that they're emotionally attached to CW's creation. They love bitcoin so much that they deliriously attack its creator because he's not who they expected. What a case study.
In general, the more obsessed someone is with bitcoin, the more they hate CW. The blood of a hardcore hodler will boil at mention of CWs name. It's not that the BSV longs are smarter than the hodlers, it's that we're less emotional about our finance. If you never loved bitcoin, you have no emotion toward CW, which allows you to sift through the evidence and come to the logical conclusion that CW is Satoshi.
Craig's testimony cleared up most of my outstanding questions, especially the cross exam. I was conflating a few incidents, like CW getting hacked and him not being able to access block 1-12. Seeing them as separate events is an eye opener.
There is nothing shady about CW not wanting to publicly sign Satoshi blocks. He's a weird and extremely complex man, so it's difficult to understand his motives, but through tenacious study it all makes sense.
A lie needs a brick wall to protect it, but the truth can emerge from just one crack. The crack is starting to form, and I'm quite confident the wall will fail within 18 months.
I'm not nearly as confident that our BSV trade will start working. CW is abrasive, aggressive, and generally unlikable. That makes it difficult to get people on board with BSV, even if they know he's Satoshi.
Confidence that CW is Satoshi: 100%
Confidence that the public will accept CW as Satoshi: 80%
Confidence that the public will buy BSV: 50%
Win or lose, this is the best trade I've ever made.
