WHO IS SATOSHI NAKAMOTO?
Good morning dear readers of Tecnogalaxy, today we will talk about the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto.
The biggest mystery in the tech universe nowadays is not how Bitcoin works, but who is the founder of Bitcoin, a whitepaper was published on an encryption email list on October 31, 2008 by a person known as Satoshi Nakamoto.
Numerous journalists and bloggers have tried unsuccessfully over the years to dispel the mystery surrounding the bitcoin creator. There were many candidates, some even nominated themselves.
In his biography of the P2P Foundation, Satoshi claims to be a Japanese male born on April 5, 1975. The problem is that it doesn’t look or sound like a Japanese. First of all, he used impeccable English to write both the whitepaper and his subsequent articles.
Stefan Thomas, a member of the Bitcoin Forum, showed timestamps of over 500 Satoshi posts. He found out that Satoshi Nakamoto didn’t publish anything between 2:00 and 8:00 p.m., now Japanese. Therefore, it is possible, even probable, that Satoshi’s entire identity is not real. On Halloween 2008, he presented in a nine-page paper “a new electronic money system totally peer-to-peer, without third parties”.
He then founded the bitcointalk forum and used the nickname Satoshi to create the initial message. He went on to develop the bitcoin program and created a website with the domain name bitcoin.org. The “genesis block”, the first Bitcoin block, was extracted by Satoshi on January 3, 2009.
To change the bitcoin protocol, Satoshi Nakamoto worked with other programmers in 2010. He was active in the bitcoin community and spoke with them regularly. Then, suddenly, he handed Gavin Andresen the keys and codes and transferred the domains to the community members. He gave up the project at the end of 2010. Then, on Saturday, April 23, 2011, when programmer Mike Hearn asked if he intended to rejoin the band, Satoshi replied, “I’ve moved on. He’s in good hands with Gavin and everyone”.
The man who had permanently compromised the banking system disappeared. why?
Satoshi’s bitcoin addresses contained about 1,000,000 BTCs. It had more than 19 billion dollars in December 2017, when the price reached its maximum. Nakamoto had temporarily the 44th highest net worth in the world at that time. And so far he hasn’t cashed a single bitcoin.
All of this data shows that something might have happened to the bitcoin maker. Hal Finney unfortunately got a diagnosis of ALS in 2009 and fought the disease until his death in 2014.
HAL FINNEY, WHO WAS THAT?
Computer scientist Hal Finney graduated from Caltech in 1979. As a student he won the “most Brains” award from his peers. He enrolled in a gravitational field theory course for PhD students during his first year of college.
Hal Finney, according to Wikipedia, developed the first reusable proof-of-work system. This is, as you know, the protocol that powers bitcoin. In addition, Finney was fascinated by the concept of digital money in the 1990s. In 1993 he even invented his own money, crypto cash.
Even though Hal Finney is dead, his contributions to humanity should not be forgotten and we must never forget the contribution he made to bitcoin, and although he may not be the real Satoshi Nakamoto, he has greatly helped the battle for a more sustainable future. The economic problem, though, is whether Satoshi is still alive and who it is would cause bitcoin and all blockchain to collapse.
This is all about the so-called Satoshi Nakamoto, a forthcoming article.
