“Craig S. Wright Gets Patent On Bitcoin White Paper And Code” … This is what I read when I got out of the shower and I thought to myself. “How is this possible?” The code is open source, you can’t hold a patent on it. It turns out I am right and you cannot do that. This is an insane attempt to “prove” to the world that he is something that he is not.
As I learned after I read this, anyone can register for a patent, and in order to dispute it, you have to fight it in court. To clarify, the U.S. patent office does NOT recognize Craig S. Wright as Satoshi Nakamoto. This just means that he registers a file to be recognized as Satoshi (since no one else has before). You can read that article here.
PATENT ON BITCOIN -BREAKING NEWS: 5/21/19
Craig Wright, the self-proclaimed creator of bitcoin, has filed registrations with the U.S. Copyright Office supporting his claims of authorship over the original bitcoin code and the Satoshi white paper.
To be clear, registration does not imply ownership nor is this an official patent. The copyright process allows anyone to register anything in an effort to prepare, say, for lawsuits associated to ownership.
Computer code and white papers can be copyrighted insofar as they are considered literary works and, as the copyright office writes: “In general, registration is voluntary. Copyright exists from the moment the work is created. You will have to register, however, if you wish to bring a lawsuit for infringement of a U.S. work.”
In other words you, the reader, could register this post and I would have to fight you in court to contest it.
Jerry Brito, executive director at advocacy group Coin Center, tweeted:
Registering a copyright is just filing a form. The Copyright Office does not investigate the validity of the claim; they just register it. Unfortunately there is no official way to challenge a registration. If there are competing claims, the Office will just register all of them.

Craig Wright filed a copyright registration for the Bitcoin whitepaper
WHAT’S THE VERDICT?
“People register things for a reason. They want to exploit it and they want the credit for it,” said David H. Faux, Esq., an intellectual property attorney in New York City. “Someone dishonest would register the Bitcoin white paper to put it on his website and get speaking engagements. But at some point it would catch up with him.”
“The market takes care of itself,” said Faux.
When asked for comment noted Wright critic Jameson Lopp said “LOL.”
UPDATE – WRIGHT WROTE:
“BTC is not bitcoin. Bitcoin is set in stone and does not change. Where there is a protocol change, there is developer control which is the exact opposite of what bitcoin is about. BTC is passing off as Bitcoin. It is an air drop copy that has been designed to slowly alter the protocol allowing the system to be anonymized to such an extent that criminal activity can happen. The goal is to create a system that allows people to commit crimes, extort money, have automated ransomware and worse. This is not the goal of Bitcoin.”
In the end, I don’t think anyone is going to recognize Craig as Satoshi, regardless of this filing. There is absolutely NO way that Satoshi would go through these measures to “prove” who he is, mainly because he came from out of nowhere, and then provided the world with a ton of value, and then disappeared. This was no accident. He created one of the most powerful, open source tools the world has ever seen and made it impossible for people to find him.
He believed in liberty,freedom, and democratizing power by undermining the the world governments and banks. Satoshi would never try to use these powers against the community it developed from the beginning. This is just a slap in the face to all the believers and early adopters who nurtured and cultivated this technology from the very beginning.

In this Coinmine One review, I am going to talk about my experience with not only the user experience in the last few months, but if I think it’s a viable option for crypto mining, so stay tuned for the whole article to get my scoop.
I recently wrote an in-depth article before I received the device outlining the features and selling points I perceived it to have and I still hold true to those beliefs, but there are also some changes after actually using the device that I didn’t take into consideration. It’s a good read and it can be found HERE.
But in this article, I want to focus in on specifically who this device is for? Is it what I expected? And ultimately, if I think it was worth the price of the device (Which you can receive a special discount on below if you are interested).
Who Is the CoinMine One Intended For?
This at-home crypto miner is designed for the new user to crypto that wants to start participating into mining, without having the learn all the technical intricacies that go along with it.
For instance, when I first unboxed the device and plugged it in for the first time, all I did was download the app, scan the QR code that came in the box to connect it, and within 2 minutes I was mining my first cryptocurrency.
.It was stupidly easy to setup and very easy to figure out. You can mine up to 6 different coins currently ( ZCash, Monero, Grin, Ethereum, Handshake, and Bitcoin) and can switch between them whenever you want all within the app.
Additionally, you can choose “Bitcoin” mode that will mine the most profitable coin on the app and automatically convert it on the backend into your bitcoin wallet if all you want is bitcoin at the end of the day. This is makes it easy to set it and forget it and will automatically utilize the device in the most efficient way to get bitcoin into your wallet, even though you aren’t “mining” it directly.
Is The CoinMine One Device What I Expected?
Overall, I came into this purchase understanding that this wasn’t going to be the most profitable way to mine cryptocurrency. For me, I knew this device would be easy to use, require no maintenance, and I could literally set it and forget it.
Additionally, since I’ve received the device, they’ve added a free feature that allows you to compound interest by leaving your funds in the wallet they provide you by 6.5% per month. This is a free service that is a win-win for accruing your funds faster.
Now, you can transfer your earned funds into your own wallet, once you hit the minimum withdrawal amount, but I personally don’t because I like to utilize a portion of my crypto to earn interest and have it go to work for me.
I also want to point out that this device is super quiet and does not generate almost any heat, like most mining rigs do. This is quieter and sleeker than a playstation and takes less power too. This can easily go in every kitchen, office, or bedroom (if you want a nightlight), without causing a disruption.
If your goal is to participate in mining and earn passive income without: tons of work, research, loud noises, and excessive cooling and electricity costs, you won’t be disappointed.
Is The CoinMine One Worth The Price Of $799?
At their normal price of $799, it can seem a little steep, but it will eventually pay off, because cryptocurrency is still very early.
Luckily for you, I have a special referral code for my readers so they can utilize my specific Coinmine One discount code. All you need to do is click HERE and enter code “BITCOINLOCKUP” at checkout to drop the price to only $649.99, saving you some money right away.
This is the best discount they offer, so I wouldn’t expect to find it cheaper anywhere else. At this price, it’s definitely worth it and it’s been nothing but a positive experience and with the compound interest option automatically applied, you’ll recoup your initial investment sooner than you think. There is no longer a reason to wait!
CoinMine One Conclusion
Overall, Is this device the most efficient way to mine cryptocurrency? No. Is this the path to the most profitability to participate in cryptocurrency mining? No. So why would I do it?
This is designed for people that are new to the ecosystem that want to participate in securing the network of the coin they want to support and allows them to do it easily and safely without ANY technical knowledge required. It takes more skill to setup a playstation than it does with this device.
You can use the calculator on the site to see how long it could take to break even or become profitable, but you shouldn’t expect a return within the first year. Now, it is possible to become profitable much quicker, but that ultimately depend on the overall market and price of the coin you are mining.
So, is it worth the price? That honestly depends, for me this wasn’t strictly about profitability but finding a non-technical way to quickly and easily immerse myself into the ecosystem and be apart of something better!
