    The self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator modestly compares himself to Andrew Carnegie and Muhammed Ali, and says he’ll give Satoshi’s billions away

    Claiming the mantle of Satoshi Nakamoto, Craig Wright has said the passwords to a bitcoin fortune worth somewhere around $7 billion should be returned to him in January 2020. If his many doubters are proved wrong and that happens, the million-plus bitcoins won't go to his children.
