(Financial News) January 1, 2020 has come and gone. This was supposed to be a monumental day for Craig Wright. This was the day that the self-proclaimed creator of Bitcoin was to get a special package that would arguably make him one of the richest men on earth. That package was supposed to be the private keys to Satoshi Nakamoto’s 1.1 million Bitcoin.
As of the time of this writing, evening of January 4, 2020, there has been exactly zero confirmation from neither Craig Wright nor his team that he has received his private key.
