The Oxford Union Society recently delved into a discussion about truth—the truth of Bitcoin, in particular.
Founding President of the Bitcoin Association Jimmy Nguyen and nChain Chief Scientist Dr. Craig Wright, the creator of Bitcoin and the man behind the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, took the Oxford Union podium to talk about Bitcoin—Bitcoin SV in particular—and answer questions from the audience.
In his opening speech (0:42), Nguyen said, “In reality, Bitcoin is really about truth, and it’s not something people really think about, so I want to explain to you three things today: why Bitcoin was born for truth, how Bitcoin’s history has devolved from that truth to things that you probably don’t realize, and finally, how we, with Craig and our team at nChain and many partners around the world, are trying to bring back truth to Bitcoin in the form of Bitcoin SV and it’s true Satoshi Vision.”
“There’s far too many blockchain projects in the world. There’s far too many cryptocurrencies. Just like the world operates on a single, global, public internet, our vision is the world operates on a single, global, public ledger where the truth of information, title changing of property from one hand to another, the custody of goods and supply chain management is all tracked out in the open on a single source of truth, which is the Bitcoin blockchain ledger,” Nguyen added.
