Craig Wright Criticizes Ethereum, Claims He is Satoshi Nakamoto, Again
The data scientist Craig Wright made a public comment on the CFTC input request for crypto markets. He states he created Bitcoin and that he is indeed Satoshi Nakamoto. He also attached a PDF document where he heavily criticized the concept and implementation of Ethereum. In the document, he declares that “Ethereum is a flawed concept based on bitcoin.” He also offers himself to be questioned out of the scope of the comment made.
Google Uses Alt Names to Score Tax Cuts and Avoid Public Backslash
Google is now expanding under other names to score tax cuts, according to an investigation by The Washington Post. The article mentions a startup called Sharka LLC in Midlothian, Texas that was really a fake name for a Google datacenter. Those responsible for the deal declared Google demanded secrecy. Google could be doing this to avoid criticism and exposure like the Amazon-New York deal.
Tim Draper Thinks Cash Will Only Be Used by Criminals

He praised bitcoin traceability during an interview on Fox Business, stating “criminals will still want to operate with cash because they catch everybody who is trying to use Bitcoin.”
Bear Market? Grayscale Boasts Record Results
The Grayscale investment firm recorded its best year to date, apparently not impacted by the extended crypto bear market. The firm obtained investments of $359.5 million, a number that broke all their previous record during the bitcoin boom on 2017. To Grayscale, this is “a clear sign that long-term investors remain bullish independent of the recent price action.”
