Bitcoins have been called the ‘most disruptive force in technology’ since the invention of the Internet with their ability to replace world currencies if billions on line decide to create their own.

In 2009, the New Yorker's Joshua Davis set out to answer the question, and may have come close. He narrowed it down to a man named Michael Clear, a grad student at Trinity College, Dublin who'd been named the school's top computer science student as an undergrad.

He was hired by Allied Irish Banks to improve its currency-trading software, and he co-authored an academic paper on peer-to-peer technology. The paper employed British spelling. Clear was well versed in economics, cryptography and peer-to-peer networks.
Davis eventually forces Clear to say, "I'm not [Nakamoto], but even if I was I wouldn't tell you."
