Australian computer scientist Craig Wright says he created Bitcoin
Satoshi Nakamoto never lived, but now he’s really dead. He was 8 years old. Nakamoto was the pseudonym of the person who created Bitcoin, the digital currency that anyone in the world can use to make online financial transactions anonymously. Since 2008, when he published the “white paper” that outlined Bitcoin’s technology, Nakamoto’s identity has been the subject of widespread speculation. Until now.
