Wright revealed he was behind Bitcoin to the BBC, the Economist, and GQ, according to the British broadcaster. While making a public revelation, Wright digitally signed messages using cryptographic keys created during the early days of Bitcoin's development.
"These are the blocks used to send 10 bitcoins to Hal Finney [bitcoin protocol contributor] in January  as the first bitcoin transaction," Wright told the BBC.
Bitcoin, a popular virtual web-based currency, was introduced in 2009. Since it was created, it was believed that a man called Satoshi Nakamoto was behind the invention. In 2014, reports started to emerge in the media that a number of individuals, including Wright, might be behind the Nakamoto name.
