The mystery behind the creator of Bitcoin may have been solved or it is just another cul de sac.

Wired's Andy Greenberg seems to have found a trail to the man behind the pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto.

And, it could be an Australian genius called Craig Steven Wright.

The 44-year-old Wright said, "I have a masters in law...a master's in statistics, a couple doctorates..." at the Bitcoin Investor's Conference in Las Vegas, though he never revealed that he was the creator indeed.

Data leaked to Gwern Branwen, independent security researcher and dark web analyst, by a source close to Wright seems to point towards him as the creator of the cryptocurrency.

Branwen, in this cryptic maze, is a pseudonym as well.

Blog posts as old as 2009, on or after launch date of Bitcoin's Beta, as well as leaked emails point to Wright.

Another blog post of Wright in 2008, before publishing the paper on cryptographic currency, reveals his intention to publish a paper on it, reports Wired

However, those who have been watching the Bitcoin trail, would know that it is believed that Satoshi holds Bitcoins to the value of one million, which is US$415 million, which Wired has now linked to a "Tulip Trust", supposed to have been managed by Dave Kleinman, Wright's close friend who died in 2013.

Kleinman could also be a pseudonym taken from the Stargate fictional world as well.

The mystery is nowhere close to being solved. However, the so-called unmasking has drove prices up by $16.50 on the CoinDesk USD Bitcoin Price Index landing at $421.83.

Bitcoin, since it launched in 2009, has been adopted as a method of transaction by many. It is a decentralised peer-to-peer payment network managed solely by its community. 

Balaji Srinivasan of the, who has also featured in CoinDesk's list of the most influential people, says that Bitcoin is here to stay.

Nakamoto, an individual or a group of people, had published a paper called The Cryptography Mailing list at in 2008.

In 2010, Gavin Anderson was handed the control of the source code repository and network alert key.
