It is awesome that Dale Dickins pressed the record button in 2014 when Dr. Craig Wright was being interviewed concerning Bitcoin. Now in 2022, we can compare what was said back then and where Bitcoin is heading today.
In an interview in 2014, Dr. Wright said:
Bitcoin is the foundation of a secure internet. We won’t have SSL in the future, we will have IPv6, enabling end-to-end communications. And Bitcoin can actually be integrated into that now. Most people don’t realize that, but it will enable secure, firewalled, end-to-end mobile domains.
Watch the timestamped video:
Bitcoin and IPv6 are a match, according to Satoshi Nakamoto himself. How come nobody seemed to notice, though? That does not matter anymore, as Bitcoin really is being tied to IPv6 nowadays—exactly as described by Dr. Wright in 2014.
BSV Global Blockchain Convention 2022: Bitcoin and IPv6
At the BSV Global Blockchain Convention in Dubai in 2022, world-renowned tech leader Latif Ladid gave a keynote speech. Ladid is chair of the 5G World Alliance and founder of the IPv6 Forum.
In his keynote speech, Ladid described how he connected with Dr. Wright and that the original Bitcoin (BSV) is the perfect fit for the worldwide utilization of IPv6. So, Dr. Wright was spot on in 2014—and still is in 2022.
Thanks to Ladid, Dr. Wright is finally being brought to the right people at the right places. Ladid introduced Dr. Wright at the Global IoT Summit in Dublin, where Dr. Wright gave his keynote speech on Bitcoin’s micropayment capabilities.
For anyone that seeks to research a little deeper, we recommend studying the three phases of Craig Wright as Satoshi Nakamoto. We are at the point of phase 4 now: the total takeover of the original Bitcoin as in the BSV blockchain—precisely the way the inventor of Bitcoin intended it to be.
However, there is more to know, and it plays out by delving into the details of Bitcoin history, the current situation, and what to expect in the future:
- How Bitcoin was saved
- The outcome of the Kleiman v Wright court case
- Nobody is attacking Craig Wright
According to Ladid, it was the outcome of the Kleiman v Wright court case that led his attention to Dr. Wright. Since then, Ladid has been helping to promote a blockchain internet revolution as envisioned by Satoshi Nakamoto.
Craig Wright’s video from 2014 touches on more than IPv6
In the 2014 interview, Dr. Wright also pointed out the importance of microtransactions. The original Bitcoin can let users transact ultra-low values with ultra-low transactional fees. Furthermore, Bitcoin is here to value data, enabling an informational economy.
All of this was mentioned by Dr. Wright in 2014 when people looked at Bitcoin solely as a new form of digital money. It seems that back in 2014, Satoshi Nakamoto was way ahead of the time.
In 2021, Dr. Wright explained how Bitcoin is an informational commodity—a term pretty much unheard of in the digital asset sphere until then. Bitcoin is a commodity money based on utility. The Bitcoin tokens are not meant to be kept on exchanges for trading. They are here for transactions. Gambling on digital asset exchanges is not transacting in and with Bitcoin, though, as no Bitcoins move when trades are being settled on an exchange.
One who understood Dr. Wright’s vision was famous economist George Gilder. At several CoinGeek conferences, Gilder publicly stated that he is convinced Craig Wright is Satoshi Nakamoto. In addition to that, Gilder said Bitcoin SV—the original Bitcoin as in the BSV blockchain—is the epitome of the information economy.
Gilder literally stated:
Bitcoin’s original gangster futurist is of course Craig Wright.
Satoshi Nakamoto’s informational economy with Bitcoin
We need a stable digital cash system for an informational economy to occur. Stable means that it is not to be changed. With BTC, we have witnessed tremendous alterations to the original Bitcoin, making BTC not Bitcoin anymore.
The Satoshi Nakamoto version of Bitcoin is well alive in the BSV blockchain nowadays, and BSV is setting transactional world records, but the best is yet to come. The set in stone protocol of Bitcoin SV, as intended by Dr. Wright, is key. Gilder intuitively understands that. In an interview with the Hoover Institution, Gilder said:
What you want in economy is predictable laws, predictable political leadership, a spirit of trust which means a contract can be predictable. Property rights, which means that property rights don’t change from time to time. That entrepreneurs can launch their creation through a world that’s governed by predictable rules of law (…).
That is exactly what the BSV blockchain delivers. Bitcoin SV will not change and therefore is trustworthy to build upon long-term. Now we get why George Gilder is on Dr. Wright’s side.
Bitcoin is an open-end Red Queen Game
It is comforting to see what Dr. Wright said in 2014 is coming to life in 2022. He is now being backed by the right people as well. The BSV blockchain is gaining unstoppable momentum, and big players such as IBM are closely watching Bitcoin SV.
With all technological disruptions, there is a wave of persons, institutions, and interests that try to stifle innovation first. However, in the end, the disruption is inevitable, and it becomes too costly for the opponents to fight it off. Meanwhile, the ones who simply adopt the innovation get an early competitive edge over those who try to block it.
Dr. Wright described Bitcoin as a Red Queen Game plenty of times. He himself has been running in it since Bitcoin’s inception. 2014 was just a perfect time to hit the record button for his marathon. For everyone else: you start running in the Bitcoin Red Queen Game, or you run away from it. Satoshi makes you run either way.
