Satoshi Nakamoto is the genius behind the Bitcoin technology. At the time of writing this post, his true identity has not been disclosed. It was Satoshi Nakamoto that posted the very first Bitcoin guide on the internet. He was the same person personally behind the development of the bulk of the Bitcoin software. He also posted various technical information about the Bitcoin project on the BitcoinTalk Forums during its initial stage.
Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
This man has never revealed his true identity. During the past years, some investigations were conducted by various bodies in order to reveal the true identity of the man called Satoshi Nakamoto. For example, a while ago, Fast Company magazine conducted an investigation and came up with an assumption that “Satoshi Nakamoto” is a group made up of three scientists (Neal King, Vladimir Oksman and Charles Bry). This is because these three scientists once filed for encryption patent sometime around 2008. These three scientists had been interviewed but they all denied being Satoshi Nakamoto.
Again, The New York magazine conducted its own investigation about him. They also came up with an assumption that it could be either Michael Clear, an Irish computer science student or Vili Lehdonvirta, a researcher at Oxford Internet institute. All to no avail, these two suspects also denied being Satoshi Nakamoto.
Other investigations were made by Newsweek in 2014. Leah McGrath Goodman started looking for people whose real names are Satoshi Nakamoto. She found a 64 years old Physician in California with the same name in question. But the man also denied being the one behind the Bitcoin technology.
Over the past years, there have been speculations by different individuals about the founder of this great virtual currency called Bitcoin. A lot of names had been dug up, but all the suspects had always denied being the ones behind the Bitcoin technology.
Since 2010, Satoshi Nakamoto’s presence has not been witnessed by the Bitcoin community. His last message was in 2011. He said, “moved on to other things.”
Satoshi Nakamoto’s Networth
According to Wiki:
As of 24 May 2017, Nakamoto is believed to own up to roughly one million bitcoins, with a value estimated at approximately $4 billion USD as of September 2017.
So this man is probably sitting somewhere in a coffee shop, sipping hot coffee like a common man, and people won’t know that he has $4 billion in his account. Well, I think this man is a genius, and every genius deserves a reward.
