It is interesting. Blast from recent past
The digital fuckery he'd have to pull off to backfit that trail after the fact would indeed make him brilliant. [ETA: Then again, Wright's company boasted the computing power to do just that.] OTOH, he could easily prove it is him simply by transferring the tiniest fraction of a single bitcoin from that thus-far unchanged address on the blockchain.

To me anyway. If nothing else, Wright is certainly a brilliant conman.

No doubt a good one, but still a conman.

His 'proof' yesterday was pretty poor.

Can't see his end game, though.

Pure speculation on my part is that Wright used his Satoshi identity as collateral for loans and investments. If he misrepresented himself as to that alter-identity, that is fraud and quite a long prison term.

Even if someone well-versed in these dark arts took me by the hand and walked me through all the minutia in and around this, I still don't have the mindly horsepower to take it all in and judge for myself; I can't begin to understand the underlying evidence. There are a few players that I somewhat trust, Gavin Anderson being one of them, but I can't know for sure. So I'll stay right here on the fence, thank you very much.

Reading some more, it looks like he may have been after a tax break on the million bitcoins. A rouse he's pulled before with bitcoins, and possibly why the Aussie tax man is after him.

As for fooling Andreson, that was most likely a cheap parlour trick. But I guess we'll see. Strange how he wouldn't replicate the test. Or let anyone take the USB stick or laptop for testing. It seems the key did fail the first time, only to work the second. I'd like to know if the USB was removed during this time. Because if so, the second inserting could just be proving the first.

And nooooooow he sez
Craig the liar Wright wrote: I’m Sorry

I believed that I could do this. I believed that I could put the years of anonymity and hiding behind me. But, as the events of this week unfolded and I prepared to publish the proof of access to the earliest keys, I broke. I do not have the courage. I cannot.

When the rumors began, my qualifications and character were attacked. When those allegations were proven false, new allegations have already begun. I know now that I am not strong enough for this.

I know that this weakness will cause great damage to those that have supported me, and particularly to Jon Matonis and Gavin Andresen. I can only hope that their honour and credibility is not irreparably tainted by my actions. They were not deceived, but I know that the world will never believe that now. I can only say I’m sorry.

And goodbye.

So he doesn't have the courage to prove it. Go figger.

Utter garbage.

Maybe he's just trying to force his name into a legacy.

The whole thing was a crock. He could have proved himself in 30 seconds, without speaking to a soul. All the pomp and ceremony was ridiculous.

I think my first guess was right; it was part of a finance con.
