Hours after Wired and Gizmodo reported on the same day that Craig Steven Wright is their best guess for a likely Satoshi Nakamoto, Australian Federal Police began reportedly began raiding residences and businesses associated with Wright (archived). Mainstream media are parroting police assertions that the raids are unconnected with the possibility Wright may be Nakamoto but instead related to Australian Taxation Office matters. Given the timing of the raid however it is exceedingly likely police, the tax office, and other agents of fiat when reading the recent speculation did as a point of fact become aroused on rumors of Satoshi's hoard.
It is of course exceedingly imprudent to take any allegations of being Satoshi seriously without seeing coins from the hoard moving. At this time it is very plausible the material uncovered by Wired and Gizmodo was fabricated and leaked by Wright himself to boost the profile of his businesses. Still it seems as though it took the mere possibility of a windfall to get the Australian state theft machine aimed squarely at Wright.
