WikiLeaks reiterated its public criticism of self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator Craig Wright after the nChain boss released a blog post that repeated his claim.
WikiLeaks: Wright is "Serial Forger"
In a series of tweets on February 12, WikiLeaks Wright called a "serial maker" and referred to past occasions when evidence was produced that he had falsified for his own use.
"Craig S. Wright is a proven serial counterfeiter of documents claiming to be the inventor of Bitcoin," says a tweet.
He was caught repeatedly. This was independently reviewed by WikiLeaks at the time of its first use and subsequently.
The setback came after Wright's February 8 post in which he made dubious statements about Bitcoin's apparent political ideology and sharply criticized WikiLeaks and certain community participants.
In discussing the use of Bitcoin by criminals, Wright jailed Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht, who is currently serving a life imprisonment that many deem false and corrupt.
"I do not like Wikileaks and I've never been a fan of [Julian] Assange's methods, "he wrote.
More importantly, I am strictly against criminal markets and bucket deals. Ross Ulbricht and others like him are criminals.

"Limits of the law"
Wright further alleged that bitcoin and anarchy were contradictory and that the use of the crypto-currency should only be in a broad context of the "law".
"Bitcoin was not designed as an anarchist system. It was designed to allow trade and commerce, but within (the) limits of the law, "reads the article.
"[A blockchain] … Does not stop state taxation and does not bring banks to a standstill. It was never designed for such a purpose. "
Wright continues to be an outspoken and often confrontational personality within the cryptocurrency, especially in social media and events. More recently, the Australian provoked outrage when, during a speech in Rwanda, he seemed to boast that he had "more money" than the whole country.
