Life seems to be the greatest mystery, as more and more we observe it. And the second greatest is who the true creator of Bitcoin is. The question has kept the entire crypto community, except Satoshi Nakamoto himself, wandering.
However, the world has even seen people claim to be Nakamoto, and that too, more than a handful. The latest attempts for making the world believe that he is indeed the creator of Bitcoin was made by Craig Wright, the mastermind behind Bitcoin SV. Nonetheless, his claims were like most others, rejected by a vast majority. And again, we are back to square one.
Interestingly, John McAfee, the great computer scientist, and long-time Bitcoin supporter has come up with a unique idea of identifying who the true creator of Bitcoin is. The suggestion seems quite logical, which might get the crypto kingdom its true King.
Satoshi is the White Paper author. That's who we're looking for. Authorship forensics is therefore 100% applicable. Run such software against other things Craig Wright wrote. It will prove that he is not the author. Do the same for all candidates. You will find Satoshi.

What McAfee essentially means that forensic comparison between Nakamoto’s White Paper and the other things which claimants like Craig Wright wrote. This way, it would be easier to find true Satoshi. Notably, McAfee wrote that the forensic report would prove that Wright isn’t Nakamoto, which is in line with McAfee’s stand on the latter’s claim.
Earlier this year in April, Wright filed a registration for the Bitcoin white paper, in a bid to claim a copyright on it. However, another copyright registration was a file in the latter half of May, by a certain Wei Liu, who is still unknown, and will most probably be rejected by the crypto space.
Applying McAfee suggestion could solve the mystery, but would the claimants agree to it is a question unanswered yet.
