Self-proclaimed founder of bitcoin attempts to patent bitcoin

It is still highly doubted whether or not Australian Craig Wright is the real founder of the bitcoin. Wright couldn’t care less about what people believe or not. Earlier this year he claimed to be the founder of the bitcoin and right now he is attempting to patent his ‘invention’.



Wright has, among other things, tried to patent a technique that makes safe online payments possible. Another patent is about the management of an operation system.



All together Wright wants to request 400 patents, hoping to earn hundreds of millions of dollars. If the patents go through, it can have serious results for the further developments of the bitcoin and the blockchain-technology.
