Craig Wright loses #BTC copyright
A U.K. judge has ruled that the file format of the Bitcoin blockchain cannot be protected by copyright, ruling against self-proclaimed inventor Craig Wright. Wright had sought to argue that he should be able to block the operation of Bitcoin and the system that forked from it, Bitcoin Cash, because they breach his intellectual property rights.
The judge said that Wright had been given ample opportunity to identify a relevant work containing content which defines the structure of the Bitcoin File Format, but had failed to do so. Claims concerning copyright to the 2008 white paper and whether Wright is really the author will be the subject of later rulings. Last week, the U.K. Court of Appeal ruled that a claim by Wright's Tulip Trading against 16 Bitcoin developers should go to trial in London.
Coming back to life with 120,000,000% profit👀
A dormant Bitcoin wallet from 2012 suddenly came to life on Wednesday, transferring 412.12 BTC. The address emptied its wallet at $23,000 a piece, which translates to a staggering $9.6 million in value today. This address was active before Bitcoin's pseudonymous creator Satoshi Nakamoto had left the project, and it is suspected that Satoshi holds as much as 5% of Bitcoin's entire supply. Bitcoin developer @LukeDashJr believes that if Satoshi is still alive, he would have challenged frauds masquerading as him and would not have allowed his stash to remain untouched.
This comes after a large Bitcoin whale transferred 13,369 BTC worth $311 million from an unknown wallet to another. The wallet was used for both sending and receiving funds, showing the potential of Bitcoin to generate huge returns over time.
$20.3M and counting, SBF's FTX lawyers bill book
FTX, the exchange owned by Sam Bankman-Fried, has paid $20.3 million in consulting and legal fees to lawyers during the initial months of its bankruptcy. The biggest bill was from Sullivan & Cromwell, which was $9.5 million for the 6,561 hours of work done.
Other large bills came from Alvarez & Marsal, which was worth $6.3 million, and Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, worth $1.5 million. The services provided by the law firms included the coordination of more than 100 entities within FTX, filing for bankruptcy protection, dealing with the hack that followed, and other services. Sullivan & Cromwell stated that the services performed by them during the fee period represented one of the most complicated, multi-disciplinary exercises by any law firm in any area of law.
Dubai's Crypto Rulebook
Dubai has released a set of rulebooks from the Virtual Assets Regulatory Authority (VARA) that require crypto firms to obtain authorization and relevant licenses to operate in Dubai. The rules cover everything from cybersecurity norms to compliance and risk-management standards, as well as separate rulebooks for activities such as issuance, advisory, custody and exchange services. All activities and firms fall under the supervision of VARA, with plans to publish a comprehensive rulebook by the end of 2022. The rules are designed to provide clarity, assure certainty, and mitigate market risks, while creating a model framework for global economic sustainability within an innovation-centric environment.
According to the agency, the purpose of the new rules is to draw in crypto businesses, keep digital asset traders and investors safe, and prevent any illegal activity. This is all part of their plan to establish Dubai as a leading hub for virtual assets, both regionally and globally, and give it a competitive edge.
