Investigations by major tech outlets Wired and Gizmodo may have potentially identified bitcoin's creator.

, they say, is 44-year-old Australian entrepreneur Craig Wright, who is thought to have created the bitcoin protocol alongside US forensic researcher David Kleiman, now deceased.

This, however, is not the first time that major news outlets embark on a quest to decipher the identity of bitcoin's mysterious creator.

With Satoshi Nakamoto's identity still unconfirmed, CoinDesk has created a poll to find out exactly what its readership thinks about the most recent investigations into the digital currency's alleged creator.
