3 Examples of Bitcoin Cloud Mining in 2020 - Legit or a Scam?

Craig Wright: The Real Satoshi Or The Real Scammer

Today we will focus on Craig Wright, the person who took the liberty to declare himself as true Satoshi Nakamoto and who tries to take all the credit of the creator of Bitcoin, the main cryptocurrency.
Bitcoin is considered to be one of the progressive forms of payments — absolutely transparent, distributed and resistant to external influence. Its creator must be at least a genius, and most importantly, a billionaire — because a significant amount of Bitcoins mined in the early stages of the project is concentrated in his hands. It is known that Satoshi Nakamoto retired from the project around 2010 and no one knows exactly who is he really is.
In December 2015, two American publications — Gizmodo and Wired — published huge investigations aimed at finding a man who has been hiding under the name of Satoshi Nakamoto since 2008. Clues led journalists to Craig Wright, a 45-year-old entrepreneur from Australia, which on many grounds could be reckoned as a true Satoshi. For example, there were publications about the ideas of a decentralized payment system similar to Bitcoin in Wright’s blog in 2008, a year before Satoshi Nakamoto himself created BTC. Another interesting fact is that in 2013 he invested more than one million BTC in the project to create his Bitcoin Bank — supposedly only the creator of Bitcoin could own such amount of coins.
In correspondence with the publications, Craig indirectly confirmed that he is Nakamoto. At the same time, in December, 2015, Wright said that he was not going to talk about himself publicly. But almost six months later Craig Wright appeared on the front pages. Unexpectedly for many, Craig decides to give an interview to the BBC and The Economist, in which once again, but already publicly assures that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. As the main proof, Wright provided a “cryptographic signature” from the private key used in the first Bitcoin transactions by Satoshi Nakamoto himself.
Since then, Dr. Wright did not give up his words and continued to tell everyone that he is Satoshi. Later Craig said that he would sue anyone who slanders him and generally denies his merits in the creation of Bitcoin.
And while he was just talking around declaring himself as the creator of BTC — all this was tolerated and ignored. But when Wright began to threaten all who disagreed with his lies, the crypto-community decided to teach him a lesson.
Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao wrote the following on his Twitter:
“Craig Wright is not Satoshi. Anymore of this sh!t, we delist!”
His example was followed by some other exchanges, like ShapeShift and Kraken, which also announced the delisting of BSV.
Blogger and ex-hacker Nik Cubrilovic and cybersecurity researcher Dan Kaminsky published their own investigations in which Wright is exposed as a great deceiver. Enthusiasts also investigated the activities of Wright and his companies. It turned out that the purpose of the existence of many of them was to draw tax refunds and the operation of other benefits that are provided to companies focused on research activities.
When an entrepreneur’s business started to decline and companies have earned an unpleasant reputation, Wright decides to appear before the public as Satoshi Nakamoto. According to Cubrilovic’s opinion, this could improve Craig’s affairs, attract new investments and add excitement since it is known that Nakamoto owns large amounts of Bitcoins.
Craig’s opponents also notice one detail: Satoshi Nakamoto would certainly stand on the side of the Bitcoin community that would like to leave the BTC system in its original form. However, in a conversation with The Economist Wright drew a different picture: if Bitcoin power can be repeatedly scaled, then it will be able to replace not only all banking systems but many others, becoming a truly mainstream currency.
In this case, the regulation and support of such cryptocurrency would have to be taken up by large organizations — from banks, already interested in using blockchain technology, to entire states. If this happens, Bitcoin will really replace conventional currency but will lose its independence — the main reason for its creation.
Here are some interesting facts about Craig Wright:
  1. In the early 1990s, worked as a sauce cook at a French restaurant.
  2. Wright filed about 114 Blockchain-related patents since 2017
  3. Craig Wright has his own companies, for example, the Tulip Trading company, which has been very successful in developing supercomputers, as well as DeMorgan Ltd and Panopticrypt Pty Ltd, engaged in various operations with cryptocurrencies. But Wright’s main project is, of course, his own Bitcoin SV (Satoshi Vision), which appeared as a result of the fork of Bitcoin Cash in November 2018. The fork’s reason was the dissatisfaction of developers and miners with a size of the blockchain that was originally written in code. Transactions were processed very slowly, so Bitcoin Cash ABC appeared, where the size was increased to 8 megabytes. But this was not enough for Craig Wright, and he initiated the second fork, setting the block size to 128 megabytes in the currency he was in charge of.
  4. In February 2018 Wright was sued by David Kleiman — a computer scientist and cyber-security expert suspected to be one of the developers behind the Bitcoin and the blockchain tech. Kleiman said that Wright stole between 550,000 and 1,100,000 BTC.
  5. In 2018, Craig Wright was sued, accusing him of forging contracts and signatures in order to assign Bitcoins in the amount of $5 billion.
  6. In October 2017, Cointelegraph published a list of the most influential individuals from the blockchain industry. Not finding his name in it, Craig Wright appealed to the media with a comment about their negative mood regarding his personality. At the same time in the Cointelegraph ranking was the name Satoshi Nakamoto. This situation was noted as Wright’s recognition that he is not the creator of Bitcoin.
  7. Craig is suspected of repeatedly conducting operations to cash large amounts of BTC. During one of the checks, he brought the family from his native Sydney and moved to London to continue working and creating his own business.

When an entrepreneur’s business started to decline and companies have earned an unpleasant reputation, Wright decides to appear before the public as Satoshi Nakamoto. According to Cubrilovic’s opinion, this could improve Craig’s affairs, attract new investments and add excitement since it is known that Nakamoto owns large amounts of Bitcoins.
Craig’s opponents also notice one detail: Satoshi Nakamoto would certainly stand on the side of the Bitcoin community that would like to leave the BTC system in its original form. However, in a conversation with The Economist Wright drew a different picture: if Bitcoin power can be repeatedly scaled, then it will be able to replace not only all banking systems but many others, becoming a truly mainstream currency.
In this case, the regulation and support of such cryptocurrency would have to be taken up by large organizations — from banks, already interested in using blockchain technology, to entire states. If this happens, Bitcoin will really replace conventional currency but will lose its independence — the main reason for its creation.
Here are some interesting facts about Craig Wright:
  1. In the early 1990s, worked as a sauce cook at a French restaurant.
  2. Wright filed about 114 Blockchain-related patents since 2017
  3. Craig Wright has his own companies, for example, the Tulip Trading company, which has been very successful in developing supercomputers, as well as DeMorgan Ltd and Panopticrypt Pty Ltd, engaged in various operations with cryptocurrencies. But Wright’s main project is, of course, his own Bitcoin SV (Satoshi Vision), which appeared as a result of the fork of Bitcoin Cash in November 2018. The fork’s reason was the dissatisfaction of developers and miners with a size of the blockchain that was originally written in code. Transactions were processed very slowly, so Bitcoin Cash ABC appeared, where the size was increased to 8 megabytes. But this was not enough for Craig Wright, and he initiated the second fork, setting the block size to 128 megabytes in the currency he was in charge of.
  4. In February 2018 Wright was sued by David Kleiman — a computer scientist and cyber-security expert suspected to be one of the developers behind the Bitcoin and the blockchain tech. Kleiman said that Wright stole between 550,000 and 1,100,000 BTC.
  5. In 2018, Craig Wright was sued, accusing him of forging contracts and signatures in order to assign Bitcoins in the amount of $5 billion.
  6. In October 2017, Cointelegraph published a list of the most influential individuals from the blockchain industry. Not finding his name in it, Craig Wright appealed to the media with a comment about their negative mood regarding his personality. At the same time in the Cointelegraph ranking was the name Satoshi Nakamoto. This situation was noted as Wright’s recognition that he is not the creator of Bitcoin.
  7. Craig is suspected of repeatedly conducting operations to cash large amounts of BTC. During one of the checks, he brought the family from his native Sydney and moved to London to continue working and creating his own business.

Craig Wright: The Real Satoshi Or The Real Scammer

Today we will focus on Craig Wright, the person who took the liberty to declare himself as true Satoshi Nakamoto and who tries to take all the credit of the creator of Bitcoin, the main cryptocurrency.
Bitcoin is considered to be one of the progressive forms of payments — absolutely transparent, distributed and resistant to external influence. Its creator must be at least a genius, and most importantly, a billionaire — because a significant amount of Bitcoins mined in the early stages of the project is concentrated in his hands. It is known that Satoshi Nakamoto retired from the project around 2010 and no one knows exactly who is he really is.
In December 2015, two American publications — Gizmodo and Wired — published huge investigations aimed at finding a man who has been hiding under the name of Satoshi Nakamoto since 2008. Clues led journalists to Craig Wright, a 45-year-old entrepreneur from Australia, which on many grounds could be reckoned as a true Satoshi. For example, there were publications about the ideas of a decentralized payment system similar to Bitcoin in Wright’s blog in 2008, a year before Satoshi Nakamoto himself created BTC. Another interesting fact is that in 2013 he invested more than one million BTC in the project to create his Bitcoin Bank — supposedly only the creator of Bitcoin could own such amount of coins.
In correspondence with the publications, Craig indirectly confirmed that he is Nakamoto. At the same time, in December, 2015, Wright said that he was not going to talk about himself publicly. But almost six months later Craig Wright appeared on the front pages. Unexpectedly for many, Craig decides to give an interview to the BBC and The Economist, in which once again, but already publicly assures that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. As the main proof, Wright provided a “cryptographic signature” from the private key used in the first Bitcoin transactions by Satoshi Nakamoto himself.
Since then, Dr. Wright did not give up his words and continued to tell everyone that he is Satoshi. Later Craig said that he would sue anyone who slanders him and generally denies his merits in the creation of Bitcoin.
And while he was just talking around declaring himself as the creator of BTC — all this was tolerated and ignored. But when Wright began to threaten all who disagreed with his lies, the crypto-community decided to teach him a lesson.
Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao wrote the following on his Twitter:
“Craig Wright is not Satoshi. Anymore of this sh!t, we delist!”
His example was followed by some other exchanges, like ShapeShift and Kraken, which also announced the delisting of BSV.
Blogger and ex-hacker Nik Cubrilovic and cybersecurity researcher Dan Kaminsky published their own investigations in which Wright is exposed as a great deceiver. Enthusiasts also investigated the activities of Wright and his companies. It turned out that the purpose of the existence of many of them was to draw tax refunds and the operation of other benefits that are provided to companies focused on research activities.

Atomic Swaps: Changelly Vs Shapeshift Vs Changenow Vs Fairlay Shift Exchange.

Centralized Crypto Exchanges are on the verge of elimination largely due to the evolution of Instant/Atomic swaps in the crypto space. If you find large, centralized crypto exchanges awkward, perplexing or frustrating to use, then you are not alone. Although centralized crypto exchanges provide a wide variety of supported digital currencies, they are often vulnerable to service interruptions caused by large transaction volumes, technical problems, and cyber-attacks. Recently, almost $30 million was lost in the Bithumb Exchange hack. Additionally, in July this year, Binance, a giant global crypto exchange, put off trading for some hours because of “atypical trading” activity they considered suspicious.
Lastly, even if everything is working well, there is the user experience to ponder about. Centralized crypto exchanges naturally demand clients to provide their detailed personal information, not forgetting headshots and photos of delicate documents like Driving Licenses and Passports to conform to the KYC/AML requirements. For those longing to enjoy their rights to privacy on these services, kindly keep off.
Such kind of awkward, perplexing and frustrating experiences are thought to make some traders and investors pull out of the crypto world. Because of that, instant exchanges like Changelly, Shapeshift, Changenow and the Fairlay Shift were invented. Instead of storing your crypto assets, these instant exchanges link directly your hardware or software wallet and enables you to swap one digital currency for another without taking them out of your wallet first. This is more safe, private and convenient. Now, let us compare the features and supported coins of these instant exchanges.
Shapeshift It is an inventive method of swapping cryptocurrencies. Shapeshift allows users to do the whole exchange within 10 seconds without the need of setting up an account. You basically pick the currency you want to exchange and the cryptocurrency you want to receive. The main feature of Shapeshift is that it has been developed basically to be incorporated into other services via API. This means that, from the viewpoint of an average customer, it is not directly a crypto exchange, rather an invention that is now being incorporated to various wallets enabling a user to create an account in various cryptocurrencies. It is good to note that Shapeshift has its flaws/limits too. First, it is advisable not surpass the amount of the Deposit limit. Else, the sent amount will be declined and sent back to the address from which they were sent. Small deposits of less than $0.10 might also be rejected and refunded minus any charge. Besides, for every cryptocurrency, Shapeshift has a specified upper limit, which is required to avoid a reserve balance of that coin.
Changelly Changelly is a common exchange founded in 2013 in Prague by the same founders who started MinerGate mining pool. The site has over one million customers and it has a simple user interface and provides a convenient way to buy and sell cryptocurrencies. The “slippery” side of this platform is that the amount available when you make a transaction request in the “You Get” form may contrast from the actual sum that you will finally receive. Apart from digital currencies, Changelly also facilitates local currency exchange using Visa or MasterCard. Changelly charges a constant transaction fee of 0.5%. However, it is good to point out that the rate for swapping digital currencies with local currencies is very high due to the need for third-party services for these transactions.
Fairlay Shift Exchange This platform is hosted by Fairlay.com, an open Bitcoin (BTC) Prediction Market. One of the key features of the Fairlay Shift service is that they facilitate swaps from and to BTC through ETH, DASH, LTC, and BCH. Currently, Fairlay doesn’t charge any fee for using the Shift Exchange service, except for the transaction charges paid to be blockchain and the spread between ask and bid orders, which is normally between 0.1 – 0.5%. This makes the Shift Exchange the cheapest service provider compared to other exchange services. The Fairlay Shift Exchange transaction charges have been labelled to be as low as the network allows and MUCH lower than any other exchange and highly competitive. Another stronghold of this exchange service is that, unlike Changelly and Shapeshift, the exact minimum and maximum amounts are shown transparently on the Status Deposit page. The site also has the lowest lower limits, for instance, you can swap 0.00003 DASH. How the Shift Exchange Precise Mode Works All orders are executed out in quick mode by default. This is the fastest option the company can provide. The amount deposited will be instantly be converted at the real-time market rate and directly deposited in the receiver address. The entire process takes less than a second once the deposited amount arrives and are established, which may take a bit longer. Precise Mode functions differently from this and will certify that the EXACT amount one desires to obtain is swapped. This is important especially in cases that demand exact bills and orders, where a customer wants to ensure only the required amount is exchanged and sent.
Changenow Changenow is another new, but very successful exchange that seeks to simplify the exchange of cryptocurrencies as much as possible. It was launched in September 2017 and made a giant leap with the release of Bitcoin Gold (November 12th, 2017), and became the first exchange to work with this cryptocurrency. This led to a turnover of $1 million in just one day. Changenow has a very simple interface which even a child can understand. All you have to do is specify the amount and the coin you want to send, as well as the coin you want to receive. Next, specify the wallet where you want to receive the money and pay the order. Everything happens automatically, and before confirming the application, you can immediately see how much the commission will be and how much money you get as a result. The commission is stable – 0.5% regardless of the volume or load of the system. We should also note the speed of the transactions –Changenow states that usually a transaction is performed within 5-15 minutes.
Conclusion The instant swap services are a step in the right direction but cutting out the third-party middlemen altogether is the ultimate goal. The original concept was a trustless transaction between two people without a custodian holding the funds in between. That was the revelation. And then what did we do? We went straight back to the traditional banking model where we trust people we don't know to look after our money for us. Then the exchanges lost that money, just like the banks do. Stupid human nature, ever repeating the mistakes of the past. So at least the Fairlay Shift, Changelly, Shapeshift, and Changenow is an improvement on that. Considering the length of processing a transaction and the costs of the services, I strongly recommend people to try out the Fairlay Shift Exchange. The service is super-fast, and the transaction costs are zero. Try it out here and thank me later.
