Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto Probably Australian Entrepreneur

The creator of the digital currency bitcoin, known only by the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, is probably an Australian entrepreneur, according to two new investigations.

Wired and Gizmodo have published separate stories suggesting that Nakamoto’s real identity is Craig Steven Wright, a 45-year-old Australian described by Wired as a “climate-change denier, a serial entrepreneur … and an eccentric.” Various attempts to prove Nakamoto’s identity in the past have proved unsuccessful.

Wired has linked Wright to bitcoin by several posts on his blog, starting with one published in August 2008 that mentioned his intention to release a “cryptocurrency paper”.
