Craig Wright | The Real Man Behind The "Fake Satoshi"

Season 1, Ep. 3

Dr Craig Wright opens up on his autism, why he’s compelled to correct people and reveals he’s a lot less prickly than he used to be.


The Australian computer scientist has a simple message for those who don't believe he is the inventor of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakaomoto.


"I am, if you don't like it, stiff."


Wright joins Blockchain Journeys for an interview that attempts to go beyond the usual questions he gets asked: invariably stuff about "why haven't you proven your claim", "private keys" and "what about this fake document then?" etc.


Instead we decided to try and find out what the real man is actually like.


*How does his autism affect the way he interacts with people? (Is that why he can seem so rude?)


*How does he behave around his wife and children? Do they bring out his best?


*Why does he feel the need to 'hunt people down on the street' to correct them?


*Why does he consider gaming billionaire Calvin Ayre his 'mentor'?


*And how does he deal with the negativity and insults from many in the crypto community who see him as a cartoonish super villain?
