Former Bitcoin Dev Gavin Andresen Regrets Previous Support for Craig Wright, Calls it a 'Mistake'


Recommended Posts

Gavin Andresen, the former lead Bitcoin developer appointed by Satoshi Nakamoto himself, now regrets that he once supported the controversial Australian computer scientist Craig Wright.




Writing on his personal blog earlier this month, Andresen called it “a mistake” to trust Craig Wright, and said he regrets “getting sucked into the ‘who is (or isn’t) Satoshi’ game.”


“I don’t believe in rewriting history, so I’m going to leave this post up. But in the seven years since I wrote it, a lot has happened, and I now know it was a mistake to trust Craig Wright as much as I did,” Andresen wrote on his blog.


The new statement was added on top of the original post from 2016 where Gavin Andresen announced his support for Wright.
