However Mark Ferrier, Wright’s partner, now denies this information.
Giizmodo and Wired continue to reveal inconsistencies in Wright’s story.
Experts agree that the evidence of Wright being a bitcoin’s inventor has been faked.
Recent disclosure of Craig Wright may have impact on the whole bitcoin future.
Investigations by Wired magazine and Gizmodo point to 45-year-old Australian entrepreneur Craig Steven Wright as real creator of the world’s most popular cryptocurrency.
The new book “Digital Gold,” written by New York Times reporter Nick Szabo, tells the story of bitcoin development and mentions the potential candidate for the role of cryptocurrency creator.
