(原标题:比特币创始人“中本聪”身份终于确认,别再猜测了)

这一次,我们可能是最后一次报道比特币创始人中本聪的“寻人启事”了。 今天下午,澳大利亚企业家克雷格 · 史蒂芬 · 赖特(Craig Steven Wright)通过 BBC、经济学人和 GQ 宣布,自己就是如假包换的比特币创始人中本聪。 赖特究竟是何许人也?爱范儿高级编辑李赓曾经撰写了一篇文章,对赖特的身份进行了较为详细的介绍。 赖特其中一个公开的身份是一名来自悉尼的查理斯顿(Charles Sturt)大学的兼职讲师,甚至还上过 CCTV 海外新闻频道的电视节目。 他名下有一家企业咨询公司 McGrathNicol。 他还是一本有关 SCADA(Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition,数据采集与监视控制系统)的著作的联合作者之一,这种技术广泛应用于利用计算机对关键设备进行管理,包括各种核电站。 他也不是第一次在公开场合谈论比特币。他多次对媒体甚至是在会议上描述他的比特币银行 Denariuz 的设想,以及他自己的安全检测手段。在 2015 年 11 月举行的一次比特币会议上,他也表达了一些不同于一般人的观点。(点击查看,视频较长) 作为一个安全专业人士,他还开放了一个地址为 craig.wright@information-defense.com 的邮箱与其他网络安全人士进行讨论,很明显他是一个非常喜欢说服别人的人。 他拥有一台名为“郁金香”的超级计算机,性能位居超级计算机 500 强第 15 名。 为了证明自己的身份,赖特在 BBC 记者面前公开展示了属于中本聪的比特币。除此以外,赖特还展示了一笔发生在 2009 年 1 月份的交易,中本聪向帮助构建比特币协议的程序员之一——Hal Finney 转账了 10 个比特币,这是有史以来第一笔比特币交易。 如果你心存疑问,不妨看看赖特本人的正式声明。 以下是赖特接受 BBC 记者采访视频节选翻译: 是什么原因驱使你站出来?或者说你为什么隐藏了这么久? 即使是现在我也更希望我的身份是个秘密,我不认为我应该站出来,隐藏自己身份是我的权利。如果我创造了一种对人们有好处的技术,为什么我一定要为此邀功呢?为什么? 你会因为人们把自己当作是中本聪而感到自豪吗? 当然了,不过这不意味着我需要屈服于电视台摄像机。 你发明了一些神奇的东西,你会想站出来说:“这就是我干的。” 我想要的是一个工作,我想继续干我自己在做的事情。我不想在电视机前面发明、写文档、写代码。我不想要名气,我不想要钱,我不想被人仰慕,我不想太受关注。 我听闻说你得到了澳大利亚政府技术部门的投资,真的吗? 不,我自己有一家正在有序运作的公司。之所以有这样传言的原因是,我们向部门公开了所有信息。我们公开了比特币的税务、发行、应用。我们也请来了毕马威的审计师进行审计。我们有内部订单,我们把这些信息提供给税务官员,希望缴纳足额的税款…… 有人认为发明了比特币的中本聪肯定有大量的比特币,非常富裕。 我有多少比特币并不重要,更重要的是我什么时候花掉。我需要在部署比特币的时候交税,而非在我拥有的时候交税。 你计划部署所有比特币吗? 我已经部署了足够多的数量,我对自己的处境感到很开心。我不想要钱,我也不需要帮助。我正在确保事情能够在律师和其他人的管理下正常运行…… 如果你给我颁发诺贝尔奖、图灵奖之类的,我永远不会接受,永远! 为什么你决定现在公布自己的身份? 我没有作出决定,是人家决定的。这(指代隐藏身份)使得我的朋友、家人、员工的日子不太好过。伦敦有我的员工,其他城市有我的员工,他们不想让比特币的这一切影响自己,我也不想他们卷入其中。目前流传的很多故事都是编造的,正在伤害着我关心的那些人,所以我决定就干这么一次,以后我再也不会面对媒体的摄像机。 从这段采访中,我们不难感受到赖特的纠结,事实上他的身份曾经在去年 12 月 9 日差点被拆穿。Wired 表示他们可能已经找到了 “中本聪” 的真身,恰恰就是赖特。

比特币创始人“中本聪”身份终于确认

而赖特在身份险些曝光之前似乎也曾经考虑过公布自己的名号。 赖特曾经以一个最为常见的比特币爱好者的形象出现在拉斯维加斯举办的比特币投资者会议:黑色西装外套,没有领带,皱巴巴的衬衫。 他对自己的个人介绍非常简单:“一个之前做研究的学者,但是成果从来没有人听过。我接触比特币已经非常久了,我一直非常低调…” 到这里他就戛然而止,也许他想说的内容就是:“我就是‘中本聪’,比特币的创造者。”

比特币创始人“中本聪”身份终于确认

不过就在 Wired 文章引起轩然大波的 48 小时之后,这一轮身份风波被“中本聪”的邮件打断,中本聪在邮件中说道:我不是克雷格 · 怀特。我们每个人都是中本聪(I am not Craig Wright. We are all Satoshi)。

好了,到目前为止,比特币存在的最大疑问——中本聪到底是谁?已经得到了最可靠的证实。既然赖特本人是如此执着于隐藏自己的身份,避开科技圈大舞台的聚光灯,那我们就祝愿这位低调的企业家能够继续沉浸在数据安全和比特币的研究上,不被名利和金钱打扰。 不过说到钱,赖特通过比特币赚到的资产可能已经够自己花十辈子了。 Original title: bitcoin founder "in the cong" identity is finally confirmed, do not guess again This time, we may be the last time to report the founder of bitcoin founder of the "missing person notice". This afternoon, the Australian entrepreneur Craig Stephen Wright (Craig Steven Wright) through BBC, the economist and GQ announced that he is the founder of bitcoin, such as fake Ben ben. Wright who is also? Li Geng, an editor in love with senior editor, once wrote an article on Wright’s identity in a more detailed way. One of Wright’s public identities was a part-time lecturer at Charles Sturt University in Sydney, and even on television at CCTV overseas news channel. He has an enterprise consulting firm named McGrathNicol. He was one of the SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition, supervisory control and data acquisition system) one of the writings of the co authors, this technology is widely used in the use of computers to manage key equipment, including nuclear power station. Nor is he talking about bitcoin for the first time in public. He has repeatedly described the idea of his bitcoin bank, Denariuz, and his own security checks in the media and even at the conference. At a bitcoin conference held in November 2015, he also expressed some views that were different from those of the general population. (click Check, video longer) As a security professional, he also opened a craig.wright@information-defense.com address for the mailbox and other network security are discussed, it is obvious that he is a very love to persuade others. He owns a supercomputer called tulip, which ranks 500 in the top fifteenth of supercomputers. In order to prove his identity, Wright in front of the BBC reporter publicly displayed belongs to the center of the bitcoin. In addition, Wright also showed a occurred in 2009 January deal, one of the programmers Hal Finney transfer to help build the Nakamoto bitcoin protocol 10 bitcoin, this is the history of the first bitcoin transactions. If you have any doubt, take a look at Wright’s own formal statement. The following is a video excerpt from Wright’s interview with BBC reporter: What drives you to stand up? Or why did you hide it for so long? Even now, I want my identity to be a secret. I don’t think I should stand up and hide my identity. That’s my right. If I have created a good for people, why do I have to take credit for this? Why? Are you proud that people think you are middle school? Of course, but that doesn’t mean I have to bend to the TV camera. You invented something magical, and you would want to stand up and say, "that’s what I did."." What I want is a job, and I want to continue doing what I’m doing. I don’t want to invent, write documents, or write code in front of the television. I don’t want fame. I don’t want to ask for money. I don’t want to be admired. I don’t want to be taken seriously. I heard that you got the investment from the Australian government’s technology department, really? No, I have a company that works in good order. The reason for this rumor is that we have disclosed all the information to the department. We have disclosed the taxation, distribution and application of bitcoin. We also invited the auditor of KPMG to conduct the audit. We have an internal order, which we provide to tax officials who wish to pay full taxes…… Some people believe that the invention of bitcoin Nakamoto So must have a large number of bitcoins, very rich. It doesn’t matter how many bitcoins I have, and more importantly, when do I spend them?. I need to pay taxes when I deploy bitcoin, not when I own it. Do you plan to deploy all bitcoins? I’ve already deployed enough numbers and I’m happy with my situation. I don’t want money, and I don’t need help. I’m making sure that things can work properly under the supervision of lawyers and other people…… If you give me the Nobel prize, the Turing prize or something like that, I’ll never take it, forever! Why did you decide to publish your identity now? I made no decision, it was decided. This means that my friends, family, and staff are having a hard time. London has my employees, other cities have my employees, and they don’t want bitcoin to affect them, and I don’t want them involved. Many of the stories that have been circulated are hurting people I care about, so I decided to do it this way, and then I would never face the media cameras again. In this interview, we can feel Wright’s tangled, in fact his identity had almost caught in December 9th last year. Wired said they may have found Nakamoto Mami, is precisely Wright. Wright seems to have considered publishing his name before his identity was nearly exposed. Wright used to one of the most common bitcoin enthusiasts appeared held in Las Vegas bitcoin investor conference: black suit jacket, no tie, crumpled shirt. His personal presentation was very simple: "a former research scholar, but no one has ever heard of it.". I’ve been in touch with bitcoin for a long time, and I’ve been very low-key
