Australian tech entrepreneur Craig Wright, long-suspected of having created cryptocurrency Bitcoin, has confirmed his identity to three publications, ending years of speculation.

Wright had his Sydney home raided by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and has since been hounded by journalists searching for solid proof of his hidden Bitcoin identity.
