REPORTS: The secret creator of bitcoin has been unmasked ' again

Published by Business Insider on Wed, 09 Dec 2015

The creator of bitcoin may be an Australianfinance geek named Craig Steven Wright, according to a new report by Wired's Andy Greenberg.Or it could be Wright and his close friend Dave Kleinman, who died two years ago, according to Gizmodo.Or Wright could be a man who really wants to take credit for it.Or the hunt to identify bitcoin's creatoris wrong again.In 2009, someoneor some peoplenamed Satoshi Nakamoto invented bitcoin, atype of digital currency that uses cryptography to move money and records it in a ledger without the need of a bank. The cryptocurrency was once an obsession among finance geeks, but emerged into more of a mainstream economic obsession. A bitcoin startup even sponsored the Bitcoin Bowl, a college-football bowl game, last year.Finding the creator of it has been an obsession among bitcoin enthusiasts and journalists alike. In March 2014, Newsweek published a cover story alleging that Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto, a man living in Southern California who denies having heard of the cryptocurrency, was its mysterious creator.But Greenberg may have the most compelling evidence so far that points to the Australian genius:Posts from Wright's blog hint at writing papers about a cryptocurrency, although Wired admits these could have been planted by Wright himself to make himself seem like the creator.Wright owns two supercomputers, including the most powerful privately owned supercomputer. These aren't on corporate campuses, but wired to his home in Australia.According to leaked documents, Kleinman had a trustcontaining the same number of bitcoins that Nakamoto is rumored to own. When he died, that trust was passed to Wright. Those bitcoins, at bitcoin's pricepeak, were worth more than a billion.Gizmodo has posted many of the emails in its own report, and you can read Wired's full story on the unknown Australian here.SEE ALSO:Yahoo will not move forward with Alibaba spinoffJoin the conversation about this storyNOW WATCH: Google's self-driving car has a huge problem
