This is a million dollar question, or in the world of cryptocurrency, the equivalent is, a 400 Bitcoin question. Who is the inventor of Bitcoin?
The answer is: Satoshi Nakamoto
But who the hell is Satoshi. The inventor of Bitcoin has chosen to remain anonymous until he recently revealed his identity in Twitter. In fact, he has been in front of very eyes the whole time.
Satoshi Nakamoto is none other than….. Donald J. Trump.
POTUS Donald Trump tweeted that he is in fact the brains behind Bitcoin all along.
This was a post made on the 1st of April but I only recently found it as I was researching on the origins of Bitcoin for the next series of Beginners Guide to Cryptocurrency.
Now, that’s what I call Fake News.
The origins of Bitcoin is definitely fodder for conspiracy theorist to tie the creation of Bitcoin to the shadowy organization, the Illuminati. Some people believe there he is in fact, the anti-illuminati for coming up with a brilliant way to go against the fiat currency which for the longest time has been attributed to the illuminati because the of the All Seeing Eye symbol on the US currency.
Is he Japanese, is he even a man, or is Satoshi the work of an organization?
Breaking down the name, it reveals that “Satoshi” means "clear thinking, quick witted; wise". “Naka” can mean “medium, inside, or relationship”. “Moto” can mean “origin”, or “foundation”.
Satoshi went to great length to mask his identity, and even took the effort to use a Japanese anonymous registration service for the Bitcoin.Org domain. He worked with people on the open-source team from the cryptography mailing list in 2009 but started fading out of the community by the end of 2010. The last anyone heard from him was on the 23 of April 2011, when he said that he had “moved on to other things”.
The Bitcoin system that Satoshi created was open source. Meaning it’s transparent and anyone in the community could look under the hood. Based on interviews with people that were involved with him at an early stage in the development of Bitcoin, the system was unconventional but thought out very thoroughly.
Does this sound like a work of a random programmer who stumbled upon a technological innovation or by someone who deliberately planned this whole thing to happen?
In 2015, after years of silence, a 44-year old Australian entrepreneur Craig Steven Wright emerged to say he’s the inventor. He was able to provide beyond reasonable proof that he is indeed Satoshi and experts are buying in on this story.
Do you? Something doesn’t add up here. If you are Satoshi and reading this, please leave a comment, subscribe, like and share this channel with the rest of your friends.
