Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

Published

on

satoshi nakamoto

“Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?” the one question that has the crypto world obsessed more than any other.

There have been many candidates who were handed the title and all returned them saying “not me”.  

We would expect the real Satoshi Nakamoto to say exactly that: “not me”, however, today, we are going to look at the candidates who have been named Satoshi Nakamoto and why they were named as such.  In conclusion, we will list our favorite candidate for the title of Satoshi Nakamoto.

Satoshi Nakamoto Net worth

Let’s begin the hunt!

NSA…who knows, they do!

The SHA-256 algorithm that is the basis of Bitcoin’s ironclad security was first introduced by the National Security Agency (NSA).   

All in the name

One of the many translations of Satoshi Nakamoto to its English equivalent means “Central Intelligence” which made people speculate that one or more government agencies are actually behind Bitcoin.

Electronic cash like Bitcoin helps agencies like NSA

NSA bitcoinThink about it for a second.  The perpetrators who want to do heinous crimes while being anonymous would love an electronic cash system that they ‘presume’ to be anonymous.  Only it is not and the agencies know exactly what’s going on and they crack down the perpetrators through a slight of ‘anonymous’ cash.  As far back as 2013, NSA had listed Bitcoin as their “#1 priority” to track.  Bitcoin transactions even got a mention on Snowden’s leaked documents.  

So yeah, there is a possibility that the bitcoin was all a big ruse to ambush the ‘tough to catch’ criminals and NSA accidentally gave birth to this entire blockchain and bitcoin revolution.

This one reason should make you believe that NSA may have created the Bitcoin

Here is the kicker, back in 1996 NSA has made public an entire thesis and framework on Electronic Cash using cryptography.  The paper titled “How to Make a Mint: The Cryptography of Anonymous Electronic Cash” described the intricacies of public-key, transferability and divisibility while addressing the issues of double-spending and wallets.  

The more we dig, the more we find reasons that an agency like NSA has many reasons to create something like Bitcoin and leave it to the wild only to follow the money, literally to nab the anti-social elements.  Just saying.

Hal Finney

Hal Finney BitcoinThe guy who was on the receiving end of the first ever Bitcoin transaction, Hal Finney has been long thought to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto.  

Why not, there are so many uncanny things about Hal that he could easily fit the bill to be the real Satoshi.  

Hal lived close to a gentleman named Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto and many think that he used this name as a clever disguise. Hal is purportedly the first enthusiast supporter of Satoshi’s bitcoin vision. He tweeted about his involvement with Bitcoin as far back as 2009.  

Besides, Hal is an expert programmer who created the first known anonymous remailer, and as far back as 2004 – he created a “reusable proofs of work (RPOW) digital cash system.”

Hal quit his job in early 2011 and the last known email correspondence with Satoshi is in 2011.  This too is used as a ‘hint’ that Hal was indeed true Satoshi Nakamoto.

One of the theories that gets floated around is the reason as to why the Satoshi’s bitcoins do not move is because Hal, who is real Satoshi, is dead.  

Whether Hal is real Satoshi or not, he is definitely the one who breathed life into the Bitcoin project during its early days.  For that he has our respect.

Dorian Nakamoto

In a 2014 expose, Leah McGrath Goodman, a Newsweek reporter claimed that Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto.  

In the article, a peek into Satoshi’s career by his brother states “What you don’t know about him is that he’s worked on classified stuff. His life was a complete blank for a while. You’re not going to be able to get to him. He’ll deny everything. He’ll never admit to starting Bitcoin.”

The intrigue of a ‘secret career’ further flared the flames that Dorian Satoshi was indeed the creator of Bitcoin.  

Dorian publicly denied the claim that he is Satoshi Nakamoto.

Dave Kleiman

Dave Kleiman BitcoinDave Kleiman served in the law enforcement when he could have made boat load of money with his coding skills.  It was not until his accident that he was confined to a wheelchair and dedicated most of his time in front of the computer.

At the most dire time of his life, even when he had access to over 1.1 Million Bitcoins, he did not touch them.  

Those 1.1 million bitcoins were given him by Craig Wright who they were supposed to be returned to in 2020.

Dave’s love for technology was such that every time he would get out of a surgery (he had many after the accident) he would quickly return to the computer.

Craig Wright…yeah right!

Craig Wright BitcoinConsidered to be the joke of Bitcoin-verse, Craig never fails to amuse people with his outrageous claims, including threats to shut down bitcoin and that he is in fact Satoshi Nakamoto.  

Few things do work in Craig’s favor in terms of ‘hinting’ him to be the Satoshi Nakamoto.  For instance:

  • Craig supposedly entrusted Dave Kleimen with 1.1 million bitcoins for safekeeping.  Some people believe that only Satoshi would have such a large pile
  • Craig once sent an email from the same email that Satoshi owned, spurring the speculation that he might be the real Satoshi

You could give us 100 more reasons indicating Craig to be true Satoshi and we will still deny it.  Craig just doesn’t have the composure of a genius who could build something as profound as Bitcoin.

Nick Szabo

Nick Szabo BitcoinThe first ever address on the Bitcoin has initials NS and Satoshi himself stated that he would include his signature on the first address.

In an email from 2009, Satoshi hinted “I just thought of something. Eventually there’ll be some interest in brute force scanning bitcoin addresses to find one with the first few characters customized to your name, kind of like getting a phone number that spells out something. Just by chance I have my initials.”

That address is: 1NSwywA5Dvuyw89sfs3oLPvLiDNGf48cPD 

And, many people point to Nick Szabo for the NS initials.

In 2014, British University researchers claimed that they had performed numerous linguistic analyses and pointed to Nick Szabo as the creator of Bitcoin.  

They concluded that “Our study adds to the weight of evidence pointing towards Nick Szabo. The case looks pretty clear-cut. Szabo is an expert in law, finance, cryptography and computer science. He created “bit gold”, a precursor to Bitcoin, and was looking for collaborators in 2008. Did Nick Szabo create Bitcoin? We’re not sure, but we think he probably wrote the paper so it’s certainly worth a closer look.”

Another point raised by the crypto enthusiasts is the fact that Nick’s blogging frequency took a nosedive in 2009, the year Bitcoin was released.

Bitcoin Blog archive

One can observe that blog posts have decreased significantly starting in 2009 compared to the previous years.

All in all, Nick Szabo is the closest person who came to be Satoshi Nakamoto, although our eyes are set on the next candidate: Elon Musk.

Elon Musk, a likely candidate, in Elon we trust!

Here is the mission and vision of PayPal that was started in 1998: “PayPal’s mission and vision is that every person has the right to participate fully in the global economy, and that we have an obligation to empower people to exercise this right and improve financial health.”  

Elon Musk BitcoinWas PayPal able to meet its original vision?  

We think that PayPal is operating way-under its true potential because of all the red tape it has in its way for being a legitimate company operating in the business world.

Who created PayPal? 

Elon Musk.

10 years after starting PayPal and seeing the financial ruins left by the collapse in 2007-2008, it is quite probable that Elon Musk devised a new way to achieve his vision. Because, Elon never quits.  

Afterall, you cannot use fiat on Mars, but you can use Bitcoin, in theory.

Other factors that point to Elon Musk as Satoshi Nakamoto:

  • Elon’s strong focus on disrupting the world with better technologies that are not bogged down by the bureaucracy
  • Elon got into hot water for taunting SEC with his ‘free to do what I want’ behavior
  • The timing of Satoshi’s exit from Bitcoin and the ramping up of SpaceX activities are uncanny
  • Elon Musk’s strong background in C++ coding and the fact that Bitcoin is originally coded in C++
  • Elon’s active involvement in producing cheap-to-free electricity  (Bitcoin’s biggest criticism is that it takes up extensive energy)

The timing of Satoshi Nakamoto conveying that ‘he moved onto other things’ in 2011 coincides with the year in which SpaceX was working on Falcon (and one year after Tesla went public).  Clearly, the priorities of taking humanity to Mars and disrupting the entire auto-industry might have kept Elon busy, is a likely argument for why ‘Elon’ excused himself.

We personally don’t care if Elon Musk is actually the creator of Bitcoin, but we hope that he is.

Satoshi Nakamoto’s wallet will never move

In our wild speculation, the close to 1 million bitcoin in Satoshi’s wallet will never move (unless Quantum Computers break the bitcoin network) because they are actually bitcoin stored by Dave Kleimen on behalf of Craig Wright.  According to Dave’s friend and business partner, Patrick Paige “If you told me there was a million dollars on Dave’s computer in this room, I wouldn’t even bother trying to look for it,” Paige said. “It would be a waste of time.”

Dave is known for his super-advanced encryption practices and if he was the one who stored them away – it may be nearly impossible to retrieve them.

Conclusion

Just searching for Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto reveals the toil and dedication of so many people who were involved in giving birth to the Bitcoin revolution.  Everyone connected with the crypto space owes a special thank you to the greats like: Dave Kleiman, Hal Finney and Nick Szabo. 

In our opinion, Bitcoin was created by a team of visionaries and computing geniuses that includes Hal Finney, Dave Kleiman, Craig Wright, Nick Szabo and, yes, Elon Musk.

That is why people fail to prove one of these individuals as the sole creator of Bitcoin because it was indeed created by a consortium of programming genius, not a single person.

Whether bitcoin was created by a single individual, a group of men or an alien, it may not matter but what matters is that genie is out.

Frequently Asked Questions

After posting this article on who Satoshi Nakamoto is, we were asked other Satoshi related questions.

We are adding this FAQ.  In answering the questions below, we refer to Satoshi Nakamoto as Satoshi.

What is Satoshi [in bitcoin]?

Satoshi is the smallest unit of bitcoin.  It refers to the 100 millionth of a bitcoin. Like a single US dollar can be split into 100 cents, similarly, 1 Bitcoin can be split into 100 million units and each unit is a Satoshi.

What is Satoshi’s wallet address?

No one knows.  Satoshi is believed to have multiple addresses and this article has originally hinted that Satoshi owned about a million Bitcoins.  Bitcoin Rich List does not show any addresses that contain more than 255,502 Bitcoins in any single wallet address (this one belongs to Huobi).  As such, it is plausible that Satoshi has stored his bitcoins in multiple wallets making it nearly impossible to pinpoint to him.  This also supports the theory that Satoshi Nakamoto is not a single person, rather it is a group of individuals or organizations making it difficult to pinpoint to one single person.

What is SatoshiPay?

SatoshiPay is a project that aims to make ‘micro payments’ using Bitcoin possible.  As the name suggests, this project’s aim is to make micro payments in Satoshis.  For instance, you could tip a good article with a few Satoshis.  The fees on Bitcoin network prevent people from conducting micro transactions, however, with lightning network and projects like SatoshiPay, it could soon become possible to spend in Satoshis.

What is Satoshi per byte?

Each transaction on the Bitcoin network requires fees.  This fee is paid in Satoshis.  When you divide this fee in Satoshis by the transaction size itself (this means, amount of bytes it takes to complete the transaction) – you get Satoshi per byte.  This is somewhat a made up measure of unit.

What is Satoshi worth?

If we were to believe the thesis by Sergio Demian Lerner and assume that Satoshi owns around 1 Million Bitcoins (assuming he did not sell, giveaway or lost) then Satoshi’s net worth will be around $9.2 Billion (at the current price of $9200 per bitcoin).

What is the Satoshi test?

You can create signatures from inside Bitcoin Wallet.  When someone claims that they truly own bitcoins in a particular wallet, you could ask them to login to their wallet and ‘execute’ a signature.  This signature then acts as the proof that the person really owns the Bitcoin in that wallet (as those without access to the wallet cannot execute the signature from within the wallet).  Alternatively, you could ask the person to send a few Satoshi’s from the said wallet to another wallet to ‘prove ownership’.  These tests of bitcoin ownership are referred to as Satoshi Test.

How many bitcoins are there?

There will be only 21,000,000 bitcoins of which 18,437,631 bitcoins are in current circulation at the time of writing this article.

What Are Smart Cities and the Role of Blockchain In Smart Cities?

IT experts have designed smart cities to develop, deploy, and promote sustainable development practices.

Now, what are smart cities? 

A smart city is a framework mostly composed of Information and Communication Technologies or ICT to address growing urbanization challenges.

A considerable part of a smart city framework or an ICT framework is that it consists of an intelligent network of connected objects and machines. 

These machines transmit information through cloud applications and with the use of wireless technology. 

Cloud-based IoT applications receive, analyze, and manage all this data in real-time, which helps municipalities, enterprises, and citizens make better decisions. 

The use of smart phones and connected cars and homes citizens engage with smart city ecosystems. 

A way to cut costs and improve sustainability is to pair devices with the city’s physical infrastructure and services. 

With the help of a smart city framework, we can find solutions to many community problems. For instance: 

  • Traffic lights connected to cloud-based applications can receive data from sensors and cars. In return, light cadence and timing in response to real-time traffic can improve, which reduces road congestion
  • Parking meters and electric vehicles charging docks can communicate with cars to find the nearest available spot
  • With the help of smart garbage cans synced to waste management companies, garbage is collected and scheduled to be picked up when needed instead of the pre-planned schedule
  • Instead of plastic cards for driver’s licenses and ID cards, citizen’s smart phones take their place. In return, access to the city and local government services are speed-up and simplified

Together, smart city frameworks help in optimizing infrastructure, public service, utilities, and mobility.

Why Are Smart Cities Being Built?

Urbanization is a problem faced by every country all over the world. 

According to statistics, 54% of the total population of the world lives in cities. The number is estimated to reach 66% by 2050. 

Over the next three decades, urbanization will make another 2.5 billion people migrate to cities, and to keep up with this rapid expansion, environmental, economic, and social sustainability is a must. 

Smart cities can provide such a framework to rely on.

Examples of smart cities  

AMSTERDAM SMART CITY:

A shining example of a well-connected smart city would be Amsterdam. The initiative of making Amsterdam a smart city began in 2009, and it includes over 170 projects. 

It sends traffic and transportation data to related parties such as developers who create mapping apps connected to the city’s transportation system. 

Due to this, navigating the city is simple and easy. The smart city infrastructure supports a floating village of houses, which helps with urbanization with a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative.

COPENHAGEN SMART CITY:

One of the smallest cities in the world, Copenhagen, is known worldwide for its mobilizing expertise. 

In collaboration with MIT, Copenhagen is leveraging open data to build an innovative bike system. 

Real-time data is shared to monitor and manage air quality as well as traffic congestion.

How Do Smart Cities Become Successful?

Along with people, dwellings, businesses, and traditional urban infrastructure, we will need four other essential elements to enable smart cities to succeed. The four elements are:

  •     Security that can be trusted
  •     Flexible monetization schemes
  •     Open information
  •     Extensive wireless connectivity

Risks   

Probably the most significant concern about smart cities is the danger of privacy breaches. 

Governments, businesses, and individuals spend millions of dollars on preventing leakage of data to outsiders, and as little as possible is shared. 

The key enabler of sustainability in smart cities would be the complex ecosystem that shares information and combines it in real-time. 

Only with the cooperation of multiple sectors can better and sustainable outcomes be achieved and to receive real-time contextual information, while making sure data is kept secured.

Role of Blockchain in Smart Cities

blockchainThe role of smart cities is to incorporate technology as the groundwork to take the edge off the problems that plague the current system. 

Examples of current smart city capabilities are universal identification (ID), green energy, water, pollution management, forms of transportation, wireless internet systems, and promotion of local businesses, to name a few. 

The ‘Internet of Things’ serves the current technology needs of smart cities; this term is used to define the integrated network of gadgets with planted exclusive identifiers. Examples include traffic management and e-commerce. 

A traffic management program called SCOOT improves green light time at intersections by providing inductive loop and magnetometer data to a supercomputer, in London, coordinating the traffic lights to enhance the traffic across the city. 

An astounding forty-seven thousand new jobs in Barcelona were created due to the implementation of a network of fiber optics that provides free and fast Wi-Fi, which supports the IoT and the integration of smart parking, lighting, and water management. 

In Amsterdam, the IoT-based infrastructure was tested by allowing traffic flow, public safety, and energy usage to be monitored and tweaked depending on real-time data. Moreover, cities like Baltimore and Boston have introduced smart trash cans that transfer information to determine the best pickup route for garbage disposal crew. 

India was the pioneer country to successfully enact a smart city project across 12 of its cities, in the year 2015. 

All of the above examples demonstrate the reliance on IoT infrastructure and blockchain can make IoT become more resilient and efficient.  

It is evident that Blockchain gives the groundwork for the management of transactions by providing security and transparency. 

Today many smart cities have a large scale Blockchain implementation or distributed ledger technology. 

By the next year, Dubai is aiming to become the first Blockchain-powered smart city in the world.

Since 2012, Estonia has used distributed ledger technology to keep records of its citizens. 

Companies like Hancom are the emerging suppliers of services and products related to IoT hardware for smart city development. 

The Hancom group will incorporate Blockchain technology to set up a 470-acre smart city development project in Gapyeong Malang Malang, as the basis for smart city development. 

This company also developed the 30-acre Augury Square in Atlanta, which will incorporate the use of cryptocurrency, pushing forward the usage of digital currency into the daily lives of its inhabitants. 

Information collected and kept in a cloud-based framework can be encoded by a Blockchain system to ensure the security of data in a smart city. 

Blockchain can be used for identification, for proof of citizenship, tax data, voting, to name a few. 

The elimination of paperwork in such a system helps to manage and reduce pollution in smart cities. 

Other services that can incorporate Blockchain in smart cities are: 

  •     Use of internet sensors to identify general repairs and road maintenance
  •     They connect to healthcare services for emergencies
  •     They are providing first responders with pertinent medical data
  •     Connection of residential utilities and rent to the Blockchain

Blockchain provides the framework to unite the services in a single system capable of tracking, security, immutability, transparency and above all SECURITY.

How Bitcoin and Crypto can liberate people to help each other!

Published

How Bitcoin and Crypto can liberate people to help each other!

I was watching this video about the atrocities of China and its authoritarian regime. 

Gravitas: Three Gorges Dam | China’s dam of doom | China floods | WION

China’s Three Gorges Dam is one of the most controversial infrastructure projects. The dam flooded 13 cities, 140 towns, and 1,352 villages when it was built…

I kept thinking, if I and few of my friends could pitch in, we could literally change one life for sure…life of this lady and her family.

But alas, we don’t have a way to help…because this person is probably unbanked or banked with an institute that will require us to jump 100 meter red tape to help.

Again, we do not like China’s authoritarian regime.

But the people of China must be just like us. With simple wishes and desires to get through life.

If governments keep screwing people like these, people can come to the rescue to save each other, no matter where they live on this bright blue planet of ours.

However, the biggest strength that the government has over each of us is the ‘system’.

A system that demands slavery from its citizens to the rules that thwart the welfare of its citizens every step of the way.

For the record, I hate China and its authoritarian regime. I do not hate the people of China.  

I think they are just like me, trying to get by with their lives in peace and not to be bothered.

But what are they supposed to do when the Government (or anti-social elements) steal what is rightfully theirs?

They can seek help but the current system keeps them outside of the realms of ‘receiving help’.

This is why we love Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies and what they represent.  

People helping each other without the red tape.

Someone might argue that the anti-social elements can also use this powerful weapon for their ill-goals.  

Yes, we agree.

What’s stopping them from using ‘physical cash’?

At least, with bitcoin and crypto, every transaction can be forever tracked.  That means, if some anti-social elements were to use bitcoin and crypto for sick activities, they can be tracked forever.

Can you track someone who uses cash?    

No chance.

So, our belief in Crypto only gets stronger by the minute because of the immense potential it offers people to become their own banks and decide how their hard earned money is spent.

I think this is a basic right that every person deserves!?

Nikola Tesla & Bitcoin

Published

on

Nikola Tesla Bitcoin

Nikola Tesla was ahead of his time.

He had over 700 patents to his name and at some point, Patents’ office refused to grant a patent to him because his invention was too inconceivable.

Of course, Tesla actually built the model to show them that it was possible.  

This was the ‘wireless’ controlled device.  Tesla used this technology on a wireless boat in a pool at Madison Square. 

Tesla actually discovered the radio communication two years before Guglielmo Marconi.  

Many of his inventions still form the ‘basis’ of everything we build in our modern society.

If you think you can outsmart Tesla, think again.  He even conceived of ‘wireless current’ long before people even got used to the Alternate Current (which is what we use to this day).

History.com captures Tesla’s accomplishments in one paragraph (although it does not capture all):  “Tesla invented electric oscillators, meters, improved lights and the high-voltage transformer known as the Tesla coil. He also experimented with X-rays, gave short-range demonstrations of radio communication two years before Guglielmo Marconi and piloted a radio-controlled boat around a pool in Madison Square Garden.”

Fiat is the modern day Direct Current

The Fiat system that we are living on is the modern day DC.  

Edison had to build DC stations every 2 miles just to transport the unsustainable and unreliable DC.

Similarly, to make the unsustainable fiat work we use banks and institutions to keep it alive.  

Now, the modern day electricity that we use is Alternate Current (AC) and it does not need power stations built every 2 miles and could be transported to long distances using wires.

What is even more crazy is that Tesla had built a ‘Wireless Current’ (WC) lab that was purportedly destroyed at JP Morgan’s behest because WC could mean ‘end of profits’. 

Take that in for a second.  Wireless Current that’s made available to anyone anywhere in the world.   

That was the basic fallacy of Tesla’s lack of business acumen.  You see, JP Morgan had already invested millions of dollars in laying out electric wires in the hope of profits.

Then Tesla goes on to propose a new electric system that does not need wires or anyone to ‘bill’ for the free energy. 

Of course, this did not appeal to JP Morgan.

If Nikola Tesla had married his idea with the ‘profit’ equation solved, we might have been using WC by now.

Similar to Tesla, many good hearted idealists have walked this earth and they all proposed some radical ideas to change the world.

They too were missing the ‘profit’ equation.  For instance, the idea of Blockchain was proposed as far back as 1958.

Nothing happened because it was missing the ‘profit – reward’ equation.

Bitcoin married the ideology with commerce.  Bitcoin is that WC but with the ‘profits’ equation solved.

Think about it.  

Anyone can become their own bank.  Anyone can use it to conduct commerce with anyone around the world.  And anyone participating in this ecosystem is rewarded with ‘mining fees’.

Brilliant.

What good reason do we need banks once Bitcoin becomes the norm?  

Bitcoin will not make banks disappear. They serve a purpose, just like the batteries that we use in 1000s of devices do, in spite of AC.

Conspiracies abound Tesla and Bitcoin alike

Nikola Tesla had 700 patents to his name. He gave us all the light that we enjoy today. He made wireless systems possible. 

He is even claimed to have invented a ‘death ray’ that could melt tankers from 200 mile distance. No one knows the truth of this claim.

However, it is a known fact that after Tesla died in 1943, all of his life work was confiscated by the United States government. History.com reports “representatives of the U.S. government’s Office of Alien Property seized many documents relating to the brilliant and prolific 86-year-old inventor’s work.”

No one knows what was hidden in those documents that contained the life-work of Tesla.

Remember, he was the guy who invented wireless control devices in 1898 and he died in 1943.  

What did he invent in the interim 45 years?

Similarly, we do not know who the real Satoshi Nakamoto is today.  We do not know if he/she/it/they are alive or dead.

We do not know if the supposed Million Bitcoins in Satoshi’s wallet will ever be moved (that could hint Satoshi is alive).

But it doesn’t matter.  

Same as what Nikola Tesla did with his inventions and forever changed the world with the gift of AC, Satoshi might have altered the course of the financial world for good with Bitcoin.

Tesla foresaw his destiny and he captured it in a beautiful quote: The present is theirs; the future, for which I really worked, is mine.

That quote rings true for Tesla as much as it does for Bitcoin.
