Debunking his fake evidence against CSW, I ask if Gavin was bamboozled then why didn't Greg Maxwell accept CSW's invitation for a live demonstration & debate?
His reply (full text):
When it's so obvious that he's a fraud, why would a famous person want to even associate their name with him? Richard Dawkins stopped debating creationists because he was tired of giving them the publicity. Same here, I imagine.
So apparently in Contrarian's mind Greg Maxwell is up there right next to Richard Dawkins, when all Greg Maxwell is known for is censorship, hacking of reddit accounts, and vote brigading.
Also, if you he spammed you with his fake evidence against CSW, here are all counterarguments you need to know:
1) Contrarian says:
Whitepaper and forum posts are nothing like Craig's style (ask Peter Rizun!)
CSW already explained that Dave Kleiman reviewed the whitepaper to make it more understandable.
Here is the extract from Andrew O'Hara's interview, CSW made this statement well before Bcore shills even started to discuss the White Paper's writing style:
The subject of bitcoin came up – quite starkly – in an email from Wright dated 12 March 2008. ‘I need your help editing a paper I am going to release later this year. I have been working on a new form of electronic money. Bit cash, bitcoin … you are always there for me Dave. I want you to be part of it all. I cannot release it as me. GMX, vistomail and Tor. I need your help and I need a version of me to make this work that is better than me.’ Wright told me that he did the coding and that Kleiman helped him to write the white paper and make the language ‘serene’. With a protocol as clever as the one underlying bitcoin, you would imagine the work was complex and endlessly discussed. But Wright says they mainly talked about it by direct message and by phone. Wright had been fired from his job at BDO (the crash was taking effect) and had retired with his then wife, Lynn, and many computers to a farm in Port Macquarie. It was there, Wright says, that he did the majority of the work on bitcoin and where he spoke to Kleiman most regularly. The Satoshi white paper, ‘Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System’, was published on a cryptography mailing list on 31 October 2008.
2) Contrarian says:
Wrong timezone to make all the forum posts Satoshi did. The whitepaper PDF also indicated a US timezone.
Online activity is not a reliable method to guess someone's timezone. I personally challenged Contrarian to guess my timezone to prove this, he said I'm from a US timezone and I showed proof that I'm from a European timezone.
3) Contrarian says:
Provably backdated PGP keys that Craig claimed were legitimate
All accusation against the pgp key were originally done by Greg Maxwell and there is no definitive proof that the pgp keys are fake. Greg's argument that the keys were created using technology that was not available on the dates they were supposedly made (2008) has already been debunked. CSW also invited Greg Maxwell for live proof since they kept speculating that the keys are fake, Greg never showed up.
4) Contrarian says:
COMPLETELY FAKED blog posts showing his early involvement with bitcoin
CSW answered contrarian himself "that was to throw wired"
5) Contrarian says:
Calling bitcoin 'Bit Coin' several times in 2011
There are emails to Dave kleinman in 2007-2008 where CSW uses bit coin as spelling (check the quoted paragraph in point 1) above, where CSW uses "bit cash").
6) Contrarian says:
Gross technical incompetence. Also here. And here.
CSW was known to be one of the most reliable freelancers in it security for banks and online gambling sites in Australia:
‘When I’ve characterised Craig to colleagues and friends,’ Rob Jenkins, who worked with Wright in this period and now holds a senior position in Australia’s Westpac Bank, told me, ‘I’ve always described him as the most qualified person I’ve ever known. I’ve worked with other smart people but Craig has such a strong desire to pursue knowledge. He has passion.
Contrarian counter argues that Rob Jenkins was a random person. Yet he admitted himself that: nChain is a patent company, and they still think they can sell the patents. If CSW is so incompetent then how come he owns patents worth millions of dollars? nTrust paid millions for his patents and still works with CSW.
7) Contrarian says:
He was paid millions of dollars by nTrust to 'reveal' himself as Satoshi;
nTrust never paid CSW to reveal himself, nTrust paid CSW for Satoshi's life rights. This distinction is important, because the time of the revelations is to be determined by the owner of the life rights. If CSW lied to nTrust though then nTrust could have prosecuted him for fraud. Yet, nTrust never made any public statement saying that CSW is not satoshi or that they were scammed. Contrarian seems to insinuate that nTrust was scammed about Satoshi's identity, even though they paid $1.5m. Should we trust Contrarian, or nTrust's due diligence, since they were the ones who paid $1.5m? When I ask Contrarian of proof that nTrust got scammed, of any legal action nTrust took against CSW, he finds none. And yet he insists, CSW scammed nTrust even though nTrust is still his employer.
Here is Andrew O’Hagan speaking of Rob Macgregor's (nTrust) deal about Satoshi's life rights:
After initial scepticism, and in spite of a slight aversion to Wright’s manner, MacGregor was persuaded, and struck a deal with Wright, signed on 29 June 2015. MacGregor says he felt sure that Wright was bitcoin’s legendary missing father, and he told me it was his idea, later in the drafting of the deal, to insist that Satoshi’s ‘life rights’ be included as part of the agreement.*
Moreover, if CSW was not Satoshi then someone (the real Satoshi) would have leaked a document to prove that CSW is lying. Satoshi already did this with Dorian Nakamoto. In 2014, 3 years after he had gone MIA, Satoshi made a post saying "I'm not Dorian Nakamoto". If CSW is not Satoshi then why didn't Satoshi post "I'm not CSW"?
