What Patoshi Is and How It Affects Craig Wright - Ep.127

Sergio Lerner, the head of innovation of IOV Labs and the creator of the Rootstock side chain, describes a pattern he discovered in early Bitcoin mining that he called Patoshi and why people are talking about it now. In this episode he explains:

  • what the Patoshi pattern is
  • what connection it has to Satoshi
  • why the pattern exists
  • how the pattern is being used now in a current court case in which Craig Wright is claiming he is Satoshi Nakamoto
  • how the Patoshi pattern was used this week to evaluate a set of transactions involving early bitcoins signed with the statement, "Craig Steven Wright is a liar and fraud"
  • how it can be determined whether or not recent transactions were mined under the Patoshi pattern
