Police target the man identified as ‘Bitcoin creator’
Australian officials reportedly searched Wright’s Sydney home and offices at the behest of the tax office.
Wired magazine and technology news website Gizmodo both released articles yesterday claiming Craig Steven Wright was the infamous Satoshi Nakamoto, founder of the crypto-currency bitcoin. Hours after that Wright's house was raided by the Australian Tax Office.
Wright has not commented publicly on the Wired and Gizmodo reports.
