Bitcoin has been in the market since the last couple of years. But there wasn’t much disclosure as to who is the owner of the company. Nothing was publicly revealed and people were unaware about who exactly is heading the company’s various operations. Now, there has been a recent development wherein a man is claiming that he is the owner of the company. It is believed that the man who owns the company goes by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto. Hence, there is a gentleman who is claiming to be the same. His name is Craig Wright. When asked about the proof, he promptly showed the Bitcoin that are only to be found with the creator.
These proofs were presented at a meeting that was held with the BBC. During this meeting several revelations were made with respect to the real owner of the company. One of them was the revelation by Wright when he presented signed messages that were digital in nature. They were signed using advanced cryptographic keys. These keys were made at the very beginning during the development of Bitcoin. Furthermore, this was considered to be the first Bitcoin transaction way back in 2009 when it was sent to Hal Finney.
Is it Really Him?
While there is a section of people who believe Mr. Wright to be what he claims to be. These include some IT specialists and economists. These specialists have also checked details through technical, social data and cryptographic methods. And all of them have been successful. There is proof also that claims that Mr. Wright is the owner of Bitcoin. While these individuals seem to suggest that Mr. Wright is indeed the owner of the company, there are some who do not believe this and remain quite skeptic about the whole situation.
