False reports Australian IT expert is Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto

Bitcoin

Wired magazine has published an article claiming they have evidence to suggest the Australian IT expert Craig Steven Wright is actually Satoshi Nakamoto, creator of Bitcoin. At the time of publishing Wright’s house in Sydney was also raided by Australian Tax officials investigating a $1.9M GST tax fraud. Documents leaked to Wired include transcripts between the ATO and Wright suggesting a private ruling on how bitcoin is taxed in Australia.</p>
<p>Coin-network suggests Wright is not Satoshi Nakamoto, due to the unverified and circumstantial evidence presented. It would appear Wright has attempted to claim he is Satoshi to some way bring attention to his research and multiple cryptocurrency ventures. VICE magazine have identified the PGP keys used by Wright are most probably backdated and point to an elaborate hoax.
