Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
Satoshi Nakamoto made the Bitcoin software in 2008 and made it open source in January 2009 and in 2010 and then disappeared. Satoshi Nakamoto is a pseudonym of either a person or a group of people who developed Bitcoin, authored its white paper, and deployed Bitcoins original reference implementation. Satoshi published a paper, titled “Bitcoin: a Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” in October 2008 and released the first software that launched the Bitcoin network in January 2009. It’s fascinating to see how Bitcoin has become a multi-billion dollar thing, yet the “Father of Bitcoin” is still missing. It was said that Nakamoto said later signed a project with a connection with one of the developers called Goin-Thress Andon, and disappeared in the mid-2010. He at the same time controlled the Bitcoin.org Internet domain controlled the Bitcoin community.
No one even knows what pronoun to use (he, she, or they) while referring to Satoshi Nakamoto because it is still not clear whether he/she is a person or a group of people. The question of who Satoshi Nakamoto has still not been answered and has generated a lot of different theories and speculations. Nakamoto didn’t disclose any private information, but Satoshi Nakamoto’s identity has been attributed to computer scientist Nick Szabo, developer and first Bitcoin transaction recipient Hal Finney, Craig Steven Wright, an Australian scientist, and businessman and to some other, less convincing options. Satoshi stopped working on the Bitcoin project in 2011 and subsequently disappeared from public life.
Nakamoto has not disclosed any personal information when discussing technical issues but in the P2P Foundation report in 2012, he claimed that a man was 37 years old in Japan. It is expected that Nakamoto has one million Bitcoin .since 2018 the Internet claims that the American artist Vincent Vanker is Satoshi Nakamoto but he refuses this claim.
