Craig Steven Wright (CSW) is the first one who presented himself as the Satoshi Nakamoto. He also adopted the harsh behavior against others who claimed the seat of BTC founder including the co-founder of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin. He also filed a case against Peter McCormack, a famous crypto podcaster, in 2018.

Craig Wright Controversy
Craig Wright has remained a controversial figure when talked about the real creator of the digital gold. Kleiman has sued CSW and asked him to return $4 billion because he and Satoshi mined bitcoin together.
