Yesterday we wrote about our doubts on Craig Wright and who he is. Less than 24 hours later he has disappeared.
You can say one thing about bitcoin: it’s never boring! Tracking developments surrounding it is more entertaining than a spy novel.
But, whatever Craig Wright may have had in mind doing with Gavin Andresen seems to have collapsed. Andresen had solidly endorsed Wright’s claim about being Satoshi Nakamoto only yesterday and seemed delighted that his mentor had decided to “go public.”
As there are obviously tensions between Andresen and others at the Bitcoin Foundation, the arrival of Nakamoto as a public figure surely would have enhanced Andresen’s professional position, which is one reason he may have been eager to establish Wright’s bona fides.
