This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 58%.
Australian tech entrepreneur Craig Wright, long-suspected of having created cryptocurrency Bitcoin, has confirmed his identity to three publications, ending years of speculation. In an interview with the BBC, Dr Wright provided proof to back up his claim using digitally signed messages and cryptographic keys known to be owned by Bitcoin's creator. "These are the blocks used to send 10 bitcoins to Hal Finney in January as the first Bitcoin transaction," he said during a demonstration. Bitcoin is essentially a code that is traded between two people, with the transaction confirmed by other users on the peer-to-peer network and added to the continuous "Blockchain" - a public ledger of all Bitcoin transactions.

[Likely Solved] Bitcoin creator 'Satoshi Nakamoto' believed to be identified
From the linked article: Australian entrepreneur Craig Wright has publicly identified himself as Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. His admission ends 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 have also confirmed Mr. Wright's claim. At the meeting with the BBC, Mr. Wright digitally signed messages using cryptographic keys created during the early days of Bitcoin's development. The keys are inextricably linked to blocks of bitcoins known to have been created or "mined" by Satoshi Nakamoto. "These are the blocks used to send 10 bitcoins to Hal Finney in January  as the first bitcoin transaction," said Mr. Wright during his demonstration. Renowned cryptographer Hal Finney was one of the engineers who helped turn Mr. Wright's ideas into the Bitcoin protocol, he said. "I was the main part of it, but other people helped me," he said. Mr. Wright said he planned to release information that would allow others to cryptographically verify that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. Soon after Mr. Wright went public, Gavin Andresen, chief scientist at the Bitcoin Foundation, published a blog backing his claim. "I believe Craig Steven Wright is the person who invented Bitcoin," he wrote. http://ghanaweb.com/GhanaHomePage/world/Craig-Wright-revealed-as-Bitcoin-creator-Satoshi-Nakamoto-435323
What are your thoughts on how the creator of Bitcoin has heretofore maintained anonymity? Given what we now know about the NSA's reach, is it implausible that at least some intelligence agency hasn't identified Satoshi Nakamoto?
