Did Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto deny he is Australian finance geek Craig Wright? A few days ago, the never-ending search for the true identity of Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto took another strange turn, when two publications claimed to have unmasked the founder as Australian finance geek Craig Wright.
Today, an email was sent out from satoshi@vistamail.com, an email that once (or is still currently) used by the true founder of the currency with the email subject "Not this again" and the brief message that says "I am not Craig Wright. We are all Satoshi."

Of course, email addresses can be spoofed, so there is the possibility that the mystery will remain a mystery for longer. Additionally, the email was missing his cryptographic signature.

Regardless, the evidence is compelling for Craig Wright being the real founder until there is a formal denial.
