Now, an Australian entrepreneur, claims he is the one behind Bitcoin and "Satoshi" was just an alias. Or is it?
Wright later wrote an open letter of apology- stating that he does not have the courage to publish proof that he is indeed the man behind Bitcoin.
While financial experts continue to debate whether Bitcoin is a legitimate currency, the electronic cash continues to gain traction with large corporations as PayPal, Microsoft, Expedia and more adopt it as a method of payment. There are even Bitcoin ATMs.
