An Australian man previously identified as possibly being Bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakamoto is believed to be close to officially outing himself.

According to a report from The Financial Times Craig Steven Wright is preparing to officially make the announcement and that he is looking for backing in his verification from some of the industry’s biggest players.

44-year-old Wright, who is described as an academic and entrepreneur, was first named as Nakamoto in December by Wired on the basis of a number of blog posts Wright wrote prior to the launch of Bitcoin, and an unverified trove of emails and documentation.

Wright has never publicly confirmed or denied the allegation that he is Nakamoto to this point, and indeed his online presence disappeared following the publication of the story.

Following publication the story got weirder, with his house being raided by the Australian Federal Police as part of an investigation into tax avoidance by one of his companies, followed by the emergence of a legal dispute which involved the use of Bitcoin to buy gold.

Clickbait bullshit article, as usual.

I'll believe it when I see two things - a signed message from one of the oldest addresses known, and a move of 100 BTC from said address to another that has a signed message as well. But we know the odds of that are nearly zero, don't we.
