Craig Steven Wright (aka CSW) is a controversial figure trying and failing over the years to convince the Bitcoin community that he is the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. Rather than providing undeniable cryptographic proof by signing a message with keys known to belong to Satoshi, Wright has been forging evidence, submitting fake documents to courts, and filing lawsuits against vocal opponents.

Craig Wright is a cheerleader of BSV (“Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision”, a Bitcoin fork with extremely big blocks) promoting the narrative that it is one true Bitcoin.
