This certainly isn't the first time a publication has purported to know the true identity of the mythical Satoshi Nakamoto. Earlier this week, Wired claimed to determine his identity to be Craig Steven Wright, an Australian former academic, saying "either invented bitcoin or is a brilliant hoaxer who very badly wants us to believe he did." Wired's evidence for naming Wright includes 2008 blog posts discussing bitcoin, emails, and accounting forms that try to corroborate the link.
