Craig Wright claims he is bitcoin inventor Satoshi Nakamoto

Peter Sayer | May 3, 2016
Wright, first outed as Satoshi in December, has offered what he claims is digital proof of his double identity

So what made Wright decide to make his claim now?

"I didn't decide," he told the BBC in a video interview. "I had people decide this matter for me. And they're making life difficult not for me but my friends, my family, my staff. I have staff here in London, I have staff overseas, and they want to be private, they don't want all of this to affect them. I don't want any of them to be impacted by this."

Other news organizations hoping Wright will repeat his claims and his message-signing demonstration on camera are out of luck.

"I'm going to come in front of the camera once, and I will never be on a camera, ever again, for any TV station or any media, ever," he said.
