Satoshi Nakamoto is the name of the unknown inventor genius behind Bitcoin. To date, however, it is unclear who Satoshi Nakamoto actually is. The name itself is a Japanese common name, so it seems likely that it is a pseudonym. Since the identity is unclear, people are always trying to pose as Satoshi Nakamoto. The computer scientist and businessman Craig Wright is one of those persons. Wright has repeatedly claimed to be Satoshi Nakamoto in the past.
Now the WikiLeaks website has come up with new clues that suggest Craig Wright is not the inventor of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. On Twitter WikiLeaks wrote:
Craig S. Wright is a proven serial citizen of documents claiming that he is the inventor of Bitcoin. He has been caught repeatedly. This has been verified by WikiLeaks at the time of his first claim and subsequently. https://t.co/87wu2Eg7WB pic.twitter.com/v4nG018JQF

“Craig S. Wright has been proven to be a serial forger of documents proving he's the inventor of Bitcoin. He has been convicted several times. WikiLeaks did this independently at the time of the first claim and after that. “
According to WikiLeaks, Wright changed his blog entry on August 26, 2008. He has added an important sentence, as shown by the screen shots submitted by WikiLeaks. In the amended version of the entry, Wright describes how he (allegedly) works on a cryptocurrency. In the blog, he continues to mention how he spent the evening and enumerates what he did. At first it said:
“Tomorrow – back to my DNA essay, my statistics dissertation and to work. Tomorrow: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Which piece, well, that's not decided yet. “
He later changed this paragraph to:
“Tomorrow – back to my DNA essay, my statistics dissertation and to work. I will soon publish a treatise on cryptocurrency. Twenty years. Triple-entry bookkeeping. BDO was good for something. Tomorrow: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Which piece, well, that's not decided yet. “
Significantly, Wright is often referred to in the community as “faketoshi” (a pun from the English word “fake” / false and “satoshi”). Wright is an outsider in the crypto industry and is considered by Vitalik Buterin and others as such.
Craig Wright and WikiLeaks
In a recent blog entry on Medium, Wright said he did not like WikiLeaks. So he had written:
“I do not like WikiLeaks and I've never been a friend of Assange's [programmer and spokesman for WikiLeaks] methods. More importantly, I am strongly against criminal markets and Winkelmakler. Ross Ulbricht [operator of Darknet Marketplace Silk Road] and others like him are criminals. They are not freedom fighters and not libertarians. They're just robbers and they embody everything that makes Bitcoin much harder. “
Twitter user “ewaldkegel” commented on this:
“If Craig S. Wright really was Satoshi, we would never have heard the name Satoshi. Modesty has never been one of his strengths. “
