Australian computer scientist Craig Wright has claimed he is the creator of the digital currency bitcoin. He's published a blog and given interviews in which he says he is the person who was previously only known by the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto.

Meanwhile Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and his Treasurer Scott Morrison are under pressure. They deliver their first budget tonight, just two months before Australia votes.
