Sorry Dr. Craig Wright, I know you don't really want publicity.

So this is an interview from 2016 about a certain Craig Wright coming out as Satoshi Nakamoto, whether you believe him or not it is interesting to hear him speak about(1h lecture) about economy, money, banks and bitcoin.

Assuming for a moment he really is the inventor of Bitcoin it is quite interesting and understandable to see that people have completely misunderstood Bitcoin and it's purpose.

It seems like everyone in the comment section of that video are in agreement that this man is full of it.. It would be magical to actually know who Satoshi is, or who they are, but in a sense it may ruin the mysticism around the name. The way this guy acts in the interview is so inconsistent and strange, he seems squirmy to me.. At any rate I don't believe him in the slightest, and I doubt Satoshi would do a "Big reveal" on some small time BBC segment.

It's fun to play pretend or make believe, but no matter how hard I try I can't even fool myself into thinking he's the man behind the mask. It might be interesting if he has an old address, but claiming to be Satoshi takes away any glory/prestige that may have come with it.

We're never going to know who Satoshi is, and I'm more than happy for it to remain that way. It won't do us any good to know who s/t/he/y are. All we can do is be thankful for what they're developed and dropped in front of us like a benevolent time-traveler. If the BBC or Fox news announces they found Satoshi, just keep it moving, don't even pay them any mind..

Satoshi wanted "small, casual transactions".

Considering that he's been talking about BTC in many different public spaces and videos for ages, I doubt that he's trying to avoid publicity.
Assuming for a moment he really is the inventor of Bitcoin
An important note about his claim to be satoshi:  he did not refuse to provide evidence that he was satoshi (which would make me think that he was not satoshi, but would not make me think that he was malicious) - he provided fake evidence and then never explained why.

For that reason, it's almost 100% certain that this man is not satoshi.
