The Bitcoin Crypto-Currency Mystery Reopened

ELI5: How has the creator of Bitcoin managed to stay anonymous even after all these years and after Bitcoin becoming more popular worldwide?

TIL that the creator of Bitcoin is still unknown. The identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, the computer programmer who invented the digital currency is a pseudonym and could represent a man, a woman, or even a group of people.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 90%. (I'm a bot)
Satoshi Nakamoto was the inventor of the bitcoin protocol, publishing a paper via the Cryptography Mailing List in November 2008.
The New Yorker's Joshua Davis believed that Satoshi Nakamoto was Michael Clear, a graduate cryptography student at Dublin's Trinity College.
In February 2014, Newsweek's Leah McGrath Goodman claimed to have tracked down the real Satoshi Nakamoto.
Dominic Frisby, a comedian and a writer, also suggests that BitGold creator Szabo was the most likely candidate to be Satoshi in his book, "Bitcoin: The Future of Money".
An analysis by Sergio Lerner, an authority on bitcoin and cryptography, suggests that Satoshi mined many of the early blocks in the bitcoin network, and that he had built up a fortune of around 1 million unspent bitcoins.
At the end of the day, bitcoin is now far bigger than Satoshi Nakamoto.
