Australian Craig Wright claims to be Bitcoin creator

Australian entrepreneur Craig Wright has publicly identified himself as Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto.

His admission follows years of speculation about who came up with the original ideas underlying the digital cash system.

Mr Wright has provided technical proof to back up his claim using coins known to be owned by Bitcoin’s creator.

Prominent members of the Bitcoin community and its core development team say they have confirmed his claims.

But many others in the Bitcoin world are asking for more proof.

    I was told by someone who is right up in this that Bitcoin is going through some political problems that make it doubtful it will survive, although other similar schemes will carry on. I must admit I sort of zoned out in Homeresque fashion after a while so am hazy on the details. Something to do with the size of the block chain.
