On Monday, Australian Craig Wright claimed to be Satoshi Nakamoto, a pseudonym used by the original architect of bitcoin. 

By Tuesday, this claim was already under siege, with demands that incontrovertible proof be provided to validate Mr. Wright's assertion (the evidence provided by Mr. Wright included forged signatures from the blockchain).

On Thursday, Mr. Wright threw in the towel, cryptically claiming he did not have the emotional fortitude to support his earlier assertions.

And so ends the tale of Craig Wright, whilst the search for Satoshi continues.
