Who is the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto, Creator of Bitcoin

Do you already know that the creator of Bitcoin is named Satoshi Nakamoto? Do you know that he is a mysterious person? Here’s the explanation.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

Bitcoin is the world’s first crypto asset. Satoshi Nakamoto is a name that was recognized as the inventor of Bitcoin in 2009.

However, Satoshi Nakamoto, synonymous with the Japanese name, is a mysterious figure. No one knows for sure who Satoshi Nakamoto really was. Hence, he is also often referred to as anonymous. There are many controversial issues regarding the creator of the king of these crypto assets. There are people who claim to be him. There are also those who say that he is a deliberately hidden name.

However, no one is sure what the name behind Satoshi Nakamoto is.

Is it true that Satoshi Nakamoto is an Anonymous name?

Many sources say that Satoshi Nakamoto is the name Anonymous. It could be that someone or a group disguised their identity as Satoshi Nakamoto. However, there is a Japanese name. He is just an ordinary person and has never admitted to creating Bitcoin. According to him, the name itself just happens to be the same and has nothing to do with Bitcoin.

Some Claimed to be Satoshi

People suspect some computer experts or experts that they are Satoshi Nakamoto. In fact, a software expert from Australia, Craig Steven Wright, said that he was Satoshi Nakamoto and had discovered Bitcoin.

However, the hackers denied this. They revealed that Satoshi Nakamoto was Asian. It was discovered by the hackers after they tried to hack Satoshi Nakamoto’s email and Satoshi Nakamoto’s side face.

Had been traced to Bali

According to the Indonesian version of Wikipedia, the hackers also had time to track down Satoshi Nakamoto after hacking his email. He was traced to Bali, Russia and Switzerland. However, he was under surveillance by intelligence from several countries.

One of the reasons why Satoshi Nakamoto disappeared was because he was hiding from the intelligence that was aiming for his life. There are some writings that have not been deleted from Satoshi Nakamoto’s old email. From there it was found that the Bitcoin research was funded by an anonymous one who turned out to be from the NSA (National Security Agency).

Did McAfee Really Know?

The creator of the well-known antivirus company McAfee, John McAfee, once revealed the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. This was disclosed in the media in May 2020.

According to him, Satoshi Nakamoto as an individual person is mere nonsense. He claims to know 99% that the inventor of Bitcoin is 11 people in one group. This matches their writing in British English. According to him, the Bitcoin whitepaper also uses British English. Although, sometimes Bitcoin documents also use English American.

However, he did not want to reveal the true identities of the 11 people. According to him, it could be dangerous for the lives of the 11 people as well as their close relatives and family.

Is it Important?

Who do you think Satoshi Nakamoto really is? And why is he hiding his identity?

Is it important to know who actually discovered Bitcoin and why is his identity secret?

A person who introduced and pioneered Bitcoin in Indonesia, Oscar Darmawan has an opinion on that. He said this in an interview with CNBC, mid-2020. According to the CEO of Indodax, the debate about who Satoshi Nakamoto really is will never be finished to be discussed. Likewise the opinion about why the identity of the inventor was not disclosed. So in his opinion, who Satoshi Nakamoto was and why he was hidden didn’t matter. His opinion is also good if the founder of Bitcoin is kept secret because so far he has never disturbed the fundamentals and their utility.

He revealed that we should be better off learning or understanding about Bitcoin itself, not Satoshi Nakamoto. Given Bitcoin is a brilliant invention as a new asset which is a safe haven asset and inflation protector. In addition, blockchain technology has the potential to be developed.
