Bitcoin Creator Has Finally Unmasked Himself. Maybe, Real?

Craig S. Wright FACTS

I’ve seen several people claim that Craig S. Wright (Chief Scientist of nChain) has been unfairly smeared and libeled lately. Let’s stick to the facts:
[1] - This link may be relevant.
[2] - Why would Satoshi do this?
[3] - Sounds like Satoshi, huh?
[4] - I urge you to read the thread and look at the person doing the critique. Compare it with Satoshi’s whitepaper
Now, before the deluge of comments about how ”it doesn’t matter WHO he is, only that WHAT he says aligns with Satoshi’s vision”, I’d like to say:
Is it of absolutely no relevance at all if someone is a huge fraud and liar? If it’s not, then I hope you’ve never accused anyone of lying or being a member of ‘The Dragon’s Den’ or a troll or of spreading FUD. I hope you’ve never pre-judged someone’s comments because of their name or reputation. I hope you’ve only ever considered technical arguments.
That said, I am not even directly arguing against anything he’s currently saying (other than random clear lies). I’ve never said anything about Blockstream, positive or negative. I’ve never expressed an opinion about what the ideal block size should be right now. My account is over 6 years old and I post in many different subs. Compare that with these (very popular!) users who frequently call me a troll or member of the ‘dragon’s den’ (with zero facts or evidence):

Craig Wright: Nigerian Prince-- and other unlikely stories

Last December the media again set itself aflame with claims of an "unmasking" of Bitcoin's creator.
As in prior events, the claims turned out to be untrue-- this time with the target seemingly having implicated himself with poorly backdated vague blog posts in order to advance a massive tax rebate fraud against the Australian Government.
After the journalists exited stage left, heads hung in shame (but, presumably, wallets fat with the largess of countless page-views) and the Aussie authorities moved in to settle accounts in the rebate fraud, most here likely expected that would be the last we would hear of Craig Wright. Sadly, it doesn't look like it.
During the last few months Craig and his accomplices have been very active quietly networking in the Bitcoin industry. Their pitch: Craig is the real thing and the press got it wrong. Their elaboration on the details would lower your IQ to hear it, so I won't bore you with it-- needless to say, few who are thinking critically and understand the technology would believe it and that's probably the point: it's a filter. If you do listen long enough you find out that Craig, earnest creator of Bitcoin, and true heir to a MILLION BTC apparently has some procedural issues with a trust securing his funds, which could all be resolved with a bit of money-- but unfortunately, the evil dictators controlling his country have frozen all of his money... and that's where you come in dear reader. You see, he just needs a bit of money to complete the paperwork to obtain the coins, and-- of course-- secure safe passage to freeer lands...
That's right-- It sounds like he's setting up a classic advanced fee fraud. Now before you think that no one would be foolish enough to fall for this, keep in mind that these scams play on ego, vanity, greed (or better-- desperation)... You, Captain of Bitcoin Industry (or intrepid journalist) are being taken in Confidence by the mysterious Creator of Bitcoin-- inconsistencies in his story are to be expected, after all, mysterious is part of the job description!-- he happens to share all your views and concerns on Bitcoin, considers your own efforts important, and now he just needs some modest funding, and in return he eagerly wishes to invest in your (now starving for investment) Bitcoin Venture. You deserve a break and HE is putting his trust in you because you are very important and trustworthy. Of course, for security reasons-- and not to mention the unlawful flight from authorities-- you must keep this all completely confidential. (And especially don't discuss it with someone that might talk some sense into you!)
Laid out like this it sounds stupid, but people-- including some "big names" (if not ones respected in this subreddit) appear to have fallen for it. The important thing is, you don't have to join their ranks.
The pool of the best targets-- the ones with the easiest egos to stroke and the greatest access to funding-- is running dry and Craig is apparently taking his act on the road, metaphorically, to reach a wider audience. If someone approaches you, pause to apply some judgement. Think: if you were to read about someone else believing the story you're being told, how foolish would you think they are?
As for those who've already been taken: You're not the first person to get ripped off in the land of Bitcoin or through advanced fee fraud. Cut your losses and try to avoid embarrassing all of us.

I’ve seen several people claim that Craig S. Wright (Chief Scientist of nChain) has been unfairly smeared and libeled lately. Let’s stick to the facts:
  • Fact: Craig's businesses were failing and he needed money in 2015 - yes, 'Satoshi' needed money!
  • Fact: Craig signed a deal with nTrust that bailed out his companies in exchange for his patents and him agreeing to be 'unmasked as Satoshi’. [see note 1]
  • Fact: Craig claimed to be “the main part of [Satoshi]”
  • Fact: Craig literally admitted lying about (fabricating) that blog post claiming he was involved in bitcoin in 2009.
  • Fact: Craig lived in Australia during the Satoshi period. The time zone means that, to be Satoshi, Craig would have almost never posted between 3pm and midnight, local time. His peak posting times would have been between 2am and 9:30am. This is practically the opposite of what one would expect.
  • Fact: Craig lost a bet on a simple technical question related to bitcoin mining
  • Fact: I’m aware of no evidence that Craig could code at all, let alone had excellent C++ skills, despite many (highly detailed) resumes available online
  • Fact: Craig traded bitcoins on MtGox in 2013 and 2014 - [2]
  • Fact: In early 2008, Craig wrote this: "Anonymity is the shield of cowards, it is the cover used to defend their lies. My life is open and I have little care for my privacy". [3]
  • Fact: Craig produced a ‘math' paper recently - [4]
  • Fact: Craig’s own mother admits that he has a habit of fabricating stories.
