    An Australian has outed himself as the founder / creator of bitcoins.

    If true I wouldn't be surprised to see him win a Nobel Prize.

    The guy is a fraud, look at his history. No way he is the creator.

    TBH i think bitcoin is more of a success due to not knowing the creator. I hope he is never named.

    An Australian auction of confiscated Bitcoin will take place on June 20.
    16 million worth, that was the proceeds of crime.
    See article here.

    Price has risen above 875 AUD. This is the highest Bitcoin has reached since the 2014 crash.
    Is it time to sell or will there be bigger returns when the Bitcoin block halving occurs in 28 days time?

    Yep, sounds good for the moment. Price has now crossed 950 AUD, however, you never know what price you're going to wake up to.

    Not until you just posted about it. I like the concept.

    Bitcoin developers are at an impass atm...they cant get the programing to conform into applications, unlike ethereum it's miles in front and just a baby. BTC over $1100 AUD today....exciting
