There are a lot of rumors about the identity of the “bitcoin creator”. There is no evidence whatsoever that the current victim of the media is the “real deal”. If all your proof is “someone who can program something like Bitcoin”, it is a bit flimsy. So, according to that hypothesis, nearly 3 percent of the world population fits that bill. The media are just speculating about who it could be and making up fancy tales about innocent people that “ just happen to fit the description”. It wouldn’t be the first time the media messed up, or has gotten the facts wrong, or even blatantly lied in interviews and news reports.
If it is not the man the media is harassing, who is it then? Let’s just think about it. IF the person, persons or group has remained hidden for so long, they will continue to do so, unless they want to be found. Who isn’t to say it can be a witty triad member who thought this up, or even a drug cartel, or some eager beaver computer programmer like me or you, who had some time to kill or has been laid off. The choices and possibilities are just endless. It is a bit narrow minded to point to someone at random, like is being done now, and ruining that person’s and family’s life forever.
As for the identity or the Bitcoin creator, it will remain hidden for a long time if that/those person(s), organization or whatever don’t want to come forward.
