Bitcoin creator ‘is 44 year old Australian’, claims Wired
You may remember Newsweek creating headlines around the world when it “outed” the creator of digital currency Bitcoin as being a 64-year-old Japanese American living near Los Angeles.
The magazine said it had found the mysterious “Satoshi Nakamoto”, the man whose name has been linked with the creation of the currency.
That “scoop” apparently proved false – Dorian Nakamoto (birth name Satoshi) ended up suing Newsweek after he said his life was turned completely upside down.
And so it is with that rigmarole still fresh in our minds that I tentatively offer this article from Wired which says Bitcoin creator “Satoshi Nakamoto” is a pseudonym used by a 44-year-old Australian cryptologist named Craig Steven Wright.
