Craig Wright is Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto


Recommended Posts

Dr Craig Wright has revealed to three media organisations (GQ, BBC, Economist) that he is Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. He demonstrated control of the same cryptographic keys that were used to send 10 bitcoins to Hal Finney as the first bitcoin transaction. However he does not want to become a figurehead for Bitcoin and said “I want to work, I want to keep doing what I want to do. I don't want money. I don't want fame. I don't want adoration. I just want to be left alone.”

Now he does not want to show more proves:


I believed that I could do this. I believed that I could put the years of anonymity and hiding behind me. But, as the events of this week unfolded and I prepared to publish the proof of access to the earliest keys, I broke. I do not have the courage. I cannot.
