In December 2015, two parallel investigations by Wired and Gizmodo suggested that Wright may have been the inventor of bitcoin. Subsequent reporting, however, raised concerns that Wright was engaged in an elaborate hoax. Hours after Wired published their allegations, Wright's home in Gordon, New South Wales and associated business premises in Ryde, New South Wales were raided by the Australian Federal Police. According to the AFP, the raid was part of an Australian Tax Office investigation. On 2 May 2016, the BBC and The Economist published articles claiming that Wright had digitally signed messages using cryptographic keys created during the early days of bitcoin's development. The keys are inextricably linked to blocks of bitcoins known to have been created or "mined" by Satoshi Nakamoto
Self-proclaimed Bitcoin inventor Craig Wright has appeared to claim that he was the hacker of Bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox in 2011, when 79,956 Bitcoin—worth $751 million today—was stolen. In a letter sent to Bitcoin services provider Blockstream, Wright’s law firm SCA Ontier alleges that he has control over two Bitcoin addresses. One of the addresses specified is the same address that received the Bitcoin stolen from Mt. Gox, according to then Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles.

PSA: Bitcoin is incredibly secure, reliable, and safe. But the surrounding zone is full of scammers, fraudsters, tricksters, and hackers.
Bitcoin is great but won't protect you from yourself. Learn to identify fraud and scams. Not your keys, not your coins. Bitcoin is like an unbreakable, super-shield that can be impenetrable when wielded properly. But improperly used, it's useless. Like running into battle with the shield sitting at home.

****UPDATED INFO (VIDEO) FOR ATT SIM SWAP ATTACK! I made a video of ATT admitting fault and responsibility for the sim swap attack, but they didn’t offer a resolution for the time, damages or stolen funds. Even though they said it’s their responsibility! Here’s the video https://youtu.be/tmiMpo8QH_s Also, Coinbase is not trying to help for any of the funds that the hacker used from my bank account! A regulated US company. I get that they can’t reverse the crypto you already have, but they store our banking info and the hacker used my attached debit card to use USD to purchase Bitcoin that I didn’t even have in the first place***** Please help ....and try to refrain from stubborn snooty comments like, “shouldn’t use Coinbase.” It could happen to any of us no matter how secure we are. Both of those text number has to be entered first, then the authorization link needs to be click on in my email. Which no one has accessed my email or i would have gotten an alert. Can this be taken care of?
