Australian tells BBC he created bitcoin, but some skeptical

Dr Craig Wright, the man claiming to be the inventor of Bitcoin (handout picture/PA)By Byron Kaye and Jeremy Wagstaff SYDNEY/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Australian tech entrepreneur Craig Wright told the BBC that he was the creator of controversial digital currency bitcoin, but some scepticism remained about the identity of a person who until now has gone by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto. The BBC reported on Monday that Wright gave some technical proof demonstrating that he had access to blocks of bitcoins known to have been created by bitcoin's creator. Unmasking Nakamoto could be significant for the future of bitcoin, a computer-generated, digital alternative to other currencies that has attracted the interest of banks, speculators, criminals and regulators.

The Unmasking of Bitcoin Creator Craig Wright Was a Long Time Coming
There's a long list of people once thought to be the founder

The creator of Bitcoin revealed himself this week as Australian entrepreneur Craig Wright, ending a hunt to unmask the inventor nearly as old the digital currency itself.

The creator of Bitcoin went by the name Satoshi Nakamoto from the time the currency was invented in 2009, but technology experts believed that the name was only a pseudonym and speculated about the founder’s actual identity. Multiple investigations since then have come to different conclusions about who might actually have started the currency.

A 2011 story in the New Yorker identified Finnish economist Vili Lehdonvirta and cryptography graduate student Michael Clear as two possibilities, but both denied it. That same year, Fast Company suggested Neal King, Vladimir Oksman and Charles Bry as possible creators as they were listed on related patent applications. Those three also denied it.

In 2013, the rumor mill picked up with Shinichi Mochizuki, a mathematician, Ross Ulbricht, infamous creator of the Silk Road site, and Gavin Andresen, a Bitcoin expert, all earning mentions as possibilities, according to a BBC report. A 2014 story in Newsweek identified Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto as the founder, but the 64-year-old engineer said he had not even heard of the currency until told about it by his son.

Finally, Wired and Gizmodo both got the name Craig Wright correct in December of last year after being shown some of his documents. Now, five months later, Wright has acknowledged it.
