Who is the Creator of Bitcoin?

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

Satoshi Nakamoto sounds like a name of Japanese origin, but that doesn’t mean it is. A few people have come forward claiming to be Satoshi, but again, there’s no proof that any of them are — or aren’t.

Craig Wright?

Australian computer scientist Craig Steven Wright infamously claims to be Satoshi, and even conducts interviews under the premise of being the creator of Bitcoin. But just as often, people have tried to prove that he’s NOT Satoshi.

Dorian Nakamoto?

Here’s a case on the flipside. Possibly the most high-profile attempt to uncover the founder of Bitcoin, Newsweek said in 2014 that engineer Dorian Nakamoto was crypto’s figurehead. Sharing a last name, that might make sense, but … well, he denied it. He said he had nothing to do with it.

Nick Szabo?

Legal scholar and computer engineer Nick Szabo pioneered the concept of smart contracts, the backbone to cryptocurrencies like Ethereum. He also theorized a currency called Bit Gold, which came before Bitcoin and was similar in many ways. And he worked for DigiCash, an early crypto payment processor.
