To the crypto world, the names of Satoshi Nakamoto and Craig Wright are more than familiar. These two names have been spoken repeatedly in a single sentence as the latter claims to be the former, yet up to this very date not one person knows who Satoshi Nakamoto is.
Known to have introduced Bitcoin to the world in 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto is the name used by a person or a group of people who developed bitcoin and created Bitcoin from scratch. Craig Steven Wright, on the other hand, is an Australian computer scientist and businessman who has publicly claimed to be the main part of the team that created bitcoin, in other words, Satoshi Nakamoto. Not many believed him.
During the Fireside Chat at the CC Forum Conference 2019, Wright claims that he had written his university thesis in 2008 that consisted of a few whole paragraphs on Bitcoin white paper. Wright told the conference that once the paper is out to the public, the truth of him being the real Satoshi will come to light.
Wright was quoted saying, “either I am Satoshi or Satoshi plagiarized me — you can make the choice, I don’t really care.”
