Who is Craig Wright in the Cryptoverse?
A usual description of Wright says is an Australian, a businessman and a computer scientist. But who he is gets more complicated in the sphere of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.
In 2016, Gizmodo published a story where Wright claimed he is Satoshi Nakamoto. Since then there has been a series of discussions on whether this is true or just a hoax. In August, Wright had an elaborate war of words with Vitalik Buterin on Twitter. Bitcoin Exchange Guide tried to get them to debate livestream, but Wright turned down the proposal.
