澳大利亚企业家Craig Wright公开表明他是比特币的创造者——中本聪。 他的声明，结束了多年来对这个数字货币系统的底层技术创造者的猜想。 Wright已经提供了技术上证据来支持他的讲话，他宣称可以使用那些只有比特币创建者才能够动用的比特币。 比特币社区的一些核心成员和核心开发团队也已经确认了Wright先生的说法。 Wright先生已经向三家传媒公司透露他的真实身份——BBC、经济学人和GQ。 在BBC的会议上，Wright先生使用在比特币开发早期阶段，他所创建的密钥来进行签名。这些密钥应该是中本聪创建或者“挖矿”比特币区块所使用的。 Wright先生在演示说，
在2014年，Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto曾经被错误的确认是中本聪。 他说，
Wright先生说他计划发布这个消息，这允许其他人能够通过密码学证据来确认他是不是中本聪。 Jon Matonis，是经济学家和比特币基金会的创始董事之一，他说，他相信Wright就是他声称的那个人。 他说，
我想要工作 随着走向公众，Wright先生希望结束到底谁是中本聪的猜测。无论是《纽约客》、《快公司》、《新闻周刊》和许多其他媒体都在很长的时间来调查寻找比特币的创造者，并找到了很多人作为候选人。 在2015年12月，有两家杂志《Wired》和《Gizmodo》，称为Wright先生是一个候选人，因为他们收到一些从他这里偷出来文档，证明他参与开发这个项目。 这些故事发表不久之后，澳大利亚当局搜查了Wright先生的家。澳大利亚税务局表示，这样的突袭只要是是为了调查一些税务支付问题，而不是为了比特币。
比特币现在已经被很多商品和服务作为一种支付方式——各种需要进行国际汇款的服务，包括被计算机病毒绑架数据来缴纳赎金。目前大约有1.55千万个比特币在流通中，每个大约价值449美元。 中本聪被认为至少持有一百万比特币以上，如果全部转化成现金的话，大约价值4.5亿美元。 Nakamoto So’s identity was confirmed! For the first time technically proved to be Craig Wrig Commentary: Runaway Nakamoto So who is maybe today would have the answer, at least this is the first time that technically, he held Nakamoto So will hold the key, it basically can prove that he is likely to be true nakamoto. But it must be emphasized, appear in the Cong and will not have much impact on the bitcoin world, he could not directly exert any influence to the bitcoin world, even if he was physically destroyed, can not change the bitcoin world works. But in any case, the Nobel prize was awarded at least. Australian entrepreneur Craig Wright publicly shows that he is the creator of bitcoin – China Ben Cong. His statement ended years of speculation about the underlying technology creators of the digital money system. Wright has provided technical evidence to support his speech, and he claims to be able to use bitcoins that only bitcoin creators can use. Some of the core members of the bitcoin community and the core development team have confirmed Mr. Wright’s claims. Mr. Wright has revealed his true identity to three media companies – BBC, the economist and GQ. At the BBC meeting, Mr. Wright used the key he created in the early stages of bitcoin development to sign. These keys are created or Nakamoto So mining bitcoin block used. Mr. Wright is speaking at the demonstration, "The blocks used to Hal Finney10 chain bitcoin sent in 2009, this is the first bitcoin transaction." The famous cryptography expert, Hal Finney, is one of several engineers who helped turn Mr Wright’s idea into a bitcoin protocol, he said. In 2014, Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto was wrongly identified as "Zhong Ben Cong". He said, "I was the most important, and a lot of people helped me, too." Mr. Wright said he plans to release the news, which allows others to use cryptography evidence to confirm whether he is Nakamoto So. Jon Matonis, one of the founding directors of the economist and bitcoin foundation, said he believes Wright is the person he claims to be. He said, "During the London conference, I had the opportunity to study data in three different directions: cryptography, society and technology.". So personally, I’m pretty sure that Craig Wright meets all three requirements." I want work As he moves toward the public, Mr Wright hopes to end up, who is the central China conjecture?. Both the New York guest, the fast company, Newsweek, and many other media have been investigating the creators of bitcoin for a long time and found many candidates. In December 2015, two magazines, Wired and Gizmodo, called Mr. Wright, were candidates because they received documents stolen from him and proved he was involved in developing the project. Soon after the stories were published, the Australian authorities searched Mr. Wright’s home. The Australian tax authority said such raids were only needed to investigate some tax payment issues, not to bitcoin. When asked about the raids, Mr. Wright said he fully coordinated with the Australian tax office. He said, "My lawyers have been negotiating with them, and how much should I pay?." "The story of December has made many journalists and others chasing him," he said "There are many stories already in existence, and many of them are fabricated. I don’t want anyone who I care to hurt. I don’t want anyone to be influenced by it." He expressed regret that he had to publish his identity. "I don’t want to be any kind of public image. I’d rather not do that. I have to work, and I want to continue what I want to do. I don’t want money. I don’t want to be famous. I don’t want to be adored. I just want to be alone." Bitcoin has now been used as a form of payment for a variety of goods and services – services that require international remittances, including data kidnapped by computer viruses to pay ransom. Currently, about 15 million 500 thousand bitcoins are in circulation, each worth about $449. Nakamoto So is believed to have at least one million bitcoins or more, and would cost about $450 million if all were converted into cash.
