Who created Bitcoin?

Who created Bitcoin? Bitcoin is the product of Satoshi Nakamoto, an unknown individual or group of people. Nobody knows who Satoshi is, although he claimed to be a 37-year-old male who lived in Japan, but some speculated he was unlikely to be Japanese due to his use of perfect English and his Bitcoin software not being documented or labelled in Japanese.

This mysterious Bitcoin inventor could remain unknown forever, but there are some hints as to who he might be. Some people have come forward claiming that they are Satoshi, while others were implied to be, but denied it.

Also, a developer who claims that he worked with Nakamoto calls him/her/them paranoid, bossy and kind of weird.
