Title: Is there a chance Satoshi is dead? Car accident, heart failure, ect
Post by: merlinsbeard on February 08, 2017, 11:36:58 PM
Nobody seems to have a good answer to where Satoshi has gone and why he and his coins have not been seen for years.

I can think of only a few reasons why that might be.

1. He wants btc to succeed and knows spending his coins will cause a massive panic.
2. He is already rich and has no need for more money.
3. He was hired/tagged by an agency or institution and is under NDA.
4. He is sick of btc.
5. He hates attention/spotlight and does not want the leadership role.

What if the answer is even simpler? He had a car accident / heart failure and died. His wallets are lost and therefore never spent.

This is so much more reasonable and probable than "satoshi is an AI" or other crazy theories here. It's sad, but I think this might be the truth.

If Satoshi was Hal Finney, he ded.

If Satoshi was John Nash, he ded.

If Satoshi is dead then someone inherited his bitcoins, wife or other relatives and they would spend it long ago no doubt...
I don't think that nobody of his relatives had no clue of what satoshi was doing, when he was inventing Bitcoin.

Yes there is a chance that Satoshi is dead because we don't know his real identity. There is a possibility that before he announced to the world his identity, he died due to some reason but we cannot tell what reason it is. He may have died with car accident, heart attack or someone had murdered him. No one can tell.

Well the worst part is that we can't know and I doubt that we ever will. If he was truly dead, I believe that he would leave in his last will maybe to reveal his identity. Those AI stories ain't that crazy too, who knows... maybe the government created bitcoin as they did TOR project. We can just speculate until one day, possibly, someone who's the real creator(s) of bitcoin comes forward.

there are many possibilities about this, if satoshi is really dead, i am sure the bitcoin project is still running and i believe that satoshi will be replace by another person which have capabilities to continue the project. we don't know what is happen with satoshi and only his friend that will know and they don't want to tell about what they do in daily with bitcoin project.

In my opinion, i'd never think Sathosi nakamoto is the real person behind bitcoin. I don't think he created bitcoin and leave it without a good reasons.
Bitcoin algorithm is too complex and too perfect to create by one man. Correct me if I am wrong.

this is the same as satoshi is an AI in my opinion.
and it is not crazy to think that Satoshi wanted to stay anonymous. and i really don't get why it is so hard for people to understand someone wanting to stay anonymous and keep his privacy!

As no one has the proof that Satoshi is still alive, as well doesn't have any identity about him makes the users to start several threads to know something about him. If he's hiding himself then I would pick one thing from the Op's quote that he might be under the surveillance of NDA.

It is more likely he is in hiding than dead. Because Satoshi posted a public message in 2014 when people thought Satoshi Dorian Nakamoto was the creator.

We dont know that. Satoshi Nakamoto is just a pseudo name for me. He is not Japanese like they present to us recently. He doesn't know shit about bitcoin. Craig Wright, John Nash or Hal Finney. They are claiming that he is Satoshi. Sick of this crap. Why dont they show proofs to end this crap.

If Satoshi is Marshall Long, he's stinking up the place.

If Satoshi is Paul Vernon, he's in China.

If Satoshi is Craig Steven Wright, then Gavin Andresen would've protected his identity [unless the proof was overwhelming].

If Satoshi is Mark Karpeles, then he's fuckin whores in Japan.

If Satoshi is the NSA, then somewhere in Utah dudes are laughin' their motherfuckin asses off at this post.

1. He wants btc to succeed and knows spending his coins will cause a massive panic. --> Yes this could be the main reason.

2. He is already rich and has no need for more money. --> may be this is true only on starting days because right now 1 million+ bitcoin will worth billion which will not be small amount even for rich people.

3. He was hired/tagged by an agency or institution and is under NDA.
4. He is sick of btc.
5. He hates attention/spotlight and does not want the leadership role.

I think satoshi is no longer alive, he may died suddenly like in accident or something similar because if he was sick and was about to die, i am quite sure he will come back to this forum and just admit it.

I dont know what is the purpose of identifying whether satoshi lived or already dead ! Maybe it is his choice not revealing himself to us for us to embrace the full anonymity of bitcoin ! bitcoin was created anonymously and so be the developer is , I don't think someone who has a multitude of bitcoin will reveal himself to the people because of security reasons , even you ,  you will not reveal yourself If you know that you have so much bitcoin in store ! we will not  know what will happen to you  if  if you  did that .

We know Hal Finney was involved with Bitcoin in the early days and we know he died. I think Satoshi and Finney worked together on Bitcoin and when Finney died and Gavin was approached by the government, Satoshi got spooked. The private keys for those coins was recorded, but it was worth a few pennies and they did not bother to keep it, because it was seen as part of a experiment.

The Satoshi millions are lost forever ^smile^

That is fascinating. I didn't realize that Satoshi had posted something as recently as 2014. The fact that he did so to say he is not Dorian, makes me think he will come out one day. I think he is proud and should want some credit as anyone would.

Assuming his post there was genuine, I suppose he must be alive. But the clock is ticking. I can't help but think his input would help this BU vs Core civil divide.

Finney died like in 2014 and Satoshi went silent here in December of 2010 and through email in like April 2011. Gavin said the last email he sent was telling Satoshi that he was speaking to the CIA or something. That could've spooked him. It also could've been the out Satoshi was looking for, everyone will think he was spooked and not rally against him leaving.

I have a feeling Satoshi is alive and watching the space. I will pick number 1 and 5, I think Satoshi is someone that put the success of his work ahead of money, fame and spotlight. He has much more money presently, and with the current price of BTC , He is a Billionaire

That could still be possible. Given the facts that nobody can really give sufficient evidence that they are the real Satoshi Nakamoto and the ongoing problems on bitcoin was still unsolved it could lead to such hypothesis that Satoshi Nakamoto really died just before or after the launch of bitcoin in his honor. There are many possibilities and this one could also be included in the list.

It seems like satoshi doesn't want to reveal himself in the public because he doesn't want to be recognized as one of the riches man/woman in the world ! I think with how much bitcoin he/she carrying it will have enough funds to level with how much money bill gates or even the apple,facebook CEO's have ! He doesn't want to be recognized as the guy who earn easy money (tho it wasn't easy) by the crowd ! but if I were him/here I will gladly reveal myself and be an inspiration to people all over the globe.

since we no one have any information we cant make any guess that h e is death, by card accident and other cause if so may his soul rest in peace. he might have huge planning about future of bitcoin.  ithink tha the is resting in ac room to see his currency a huge success in future.

My his soul rest in peace if he Is more alive with us. But I would never want such a person is death. we need him to make the technology a better one then the present with huge problems like unconfirmed transaction, too much anonymity that government hates and we would also love to make this currency legal by imposing taxes                     o the currency.

I think satoshi nakamoto is just hiding his true identity because of the fear that If people will identify that he hold so much bitcoin his life will be threatened , I am pretty sure he is alive and he is enjoying the fruits of his works today and not worry about the work of the future because he has so much money in his pocket right now! so please stop predicting whether he lives or not because i am pretty sure he is enjoying his life right now so better enjoy yours !

There is a chance that satoshi is dead because of car accident, car failure or any other reasons that might have been the reason but most probably satoshi is probably in hiding. He is also not selling his bitcoins since it will create the people panic and maybe he wants bitcoin to thrive more selling little by little. That is just my theory though he might be somewhere out there just enjoying his/her life.

I hope he is not dead and will come back here someday to continue his work.

We can throw as many speculation as we can but those cannot be confirmed until he comes back. Why don't we just stop it and focus on bitcoin and not the creator. I think it is more productive that way.

Nobody wants him to come back or expose himself, it will be disaster for bitcoin. This will trigger series of panic reaction among bitcoin holders, which will force a very big dump on the bitcoin price.

Even if he is still alive i am quite sure he will not move bitcoin from his known addresses. Satoshi will not let bitcoin lost its value due to his activity.

Of course there is a chance, if no one knows who he is then how would we ever know.  although i think satoshi is still hanging around and is prob a big name in bitcoin today with out admitting it.

Many speculations reagarding the life of satoshi now, if he is dead or what, many claims that they are Satoshi, I guess we cannot say about that since Satoshi did not publicize his personal things, but then if satoshi is dead for sure he introduce bitcoin to his relatives or family.

If satoshi was only his nickname then it may be the chances that he would be died and no one know that who was he as for many projects people often select a new nickname and do not share that with their relatives and friends while if it was his real name then I think he is now alive because his relatives would not hide him for that longer.

I am not sure why people has this much interest in satoshi. Satoshi has been gone for a very long time. I think it has been years since he was still supporting the project. He is gone and there is no point looking for him anyway. What do you guys want? An autograph and a picture with him? I don't think he will even allow you to do that.

An Inventor is not important, an invention is what matters!
Fame, money, reputation, respect is not all wanted to live. People may live a most happy life by getting inner satisfaction. Even if you study Maslow's need hierarchy theory, he had placed 'self-actualization goal' at the top. Achieving what one's biggest dream is all better than money and fame!
Maybe, Satoshi belongs to such race of psychology, who knows!!

I don't want to be led into assumptions because whether he's dead or alive Bitcoin is Bitcoin and the current developers are doing a great job. His presence even though might spark enthusiasm it doesn't really matter at this stage of Bitcoin growth.

He may have been dead for all we know. But he left us a legacy which is bitcoin and everybody here should stop interest on the man but instead let his legacy and value stays forever.

yes it can be true because no one know about him his identity therefore every possible is there. satoshi is hiding his identity and may be the reason behind this that he want to keep bitcoin as anonymous and decentralize currency fo the world. people from all over the world are now giving prefernce to bitcoin and adopting it but if Satoshi will disclose his identity may then people will not give too much importance to it and that is the reason that satoshi is hiding his identity.

I think he is alive and he do not want to show his identity to the public and he want to make himself as an example for all of us to not to show your identity while using bitcoin and want to love the feature of anonymity of bitcoin and want to make it a long lasting feature of bitcoin.

This is so much more reasonable and probable than "satoshi is an AI" or other crazy theories here. It's sad, but I think this might be the truth.
1. Bitcoin wasn't worth but maybe a dollar a piece when Satoshi went silent. So he wasn't concerned with panic. Not to mention that nobody who was here really cared that he had mined all those blocks.
2.Close. Probably not rich but comfortable. He probably had/has a 6 figure a year salary as a programmer or the likes. He most likely remained anonymous because he worked for someone that might try to claim it as intellectual property since it would've been easy to convince a court he was working on it on company time. If you think about it, nobody who attempted something like this went anonymous (that I've ever heard) when releasing the precursors of e-cash years before. So there was no precedence for him to go anon.
3. Companies are greedy and would've taken the coins that haven't moved already.
4. I think he went public as a bystander and has been working on BTC in some capacity, though way removed.
5.If you read his posts, he was not afraid to speak up and be and was well versed in most related concepts to Bitcoin.

My guess is, he had to work in real life or travel when he went silent here. He then saw that BTC was still running and doing fine with others taken over and decided to stay on the side line. Or he had a time limit for him being the central piece and that was when it hit a dollar he would let it go and let it be a truly decentralized project. As for the blocks he mined, he either burned the private keys or he still has them but is scared to move them now.

I agree with most of this except I think Satoshi was probably 2 or 3 people.  Enough people so you can manage the working parts initially but not too many since even with 3 people it would be hard to keep a secret (eventually someone gets pissed off and goes public).  History is riddled with failed digital currency projects so they were probably almost as surprised as everyone else at how fast it took off and hit $1/btc.  It's a good guess that they premined whatever they did (5-10%?) so that if it ever reached dollar parity they would become millionaires.  

One thing I've realized: the anonymity of satoshi was initially actually just as important to bitcoin's success as anything else they did.  Satoshi probably had already had legal problems (at the very least he saw others having them) when developing earlier versions of cryptocurrency as a non-anon dev.

I also think that he dont need unwanted attention that can ruin his success. He must be billionaire by now and if anyone who his real identity they can try to hijack him or his technology secrets. He could have threats to his life. So i guess his hidden identity is good for all of us.

I think bitcoin can be use for something criminal so Satoshi want to protect his/her family because creating bitcoin = create another way to transaction especially for bad transaction !

the strange part is that he was MIA before the big jump of bitcoin, so it wasn't because he was rich or something, bitcoin value was still below $1 and with his amount he coudl barely reach 200k dollars...

therefore the other reason must be an accident that cost his life or something else that we can't think about

He might be dead, of course, accidents and bad things can happen to anyone. But in such case I think that is the most likely that his identity would be revealed so if something like this happened we would have heard. So, he is probably alive but very well hidden from public because he wants so.

In my opinion, I'd never think Satoshi Nakamoto is the real person behind bitcoin.
Most people share the same point of view, his real identity could be anything but Satoshi. Nevertheless, he gave the world an award winning piece.

Quote
I don't think he created bitcoin and leave it without a good reasons.
The entire scheme has a grand master touch, so to have moved on without it, I think must be for good reasons. One of which is his safety and to allow others discover Bitcoin and Blockchain by themselves.

Bitcoin algorithm is too complex and too perfect to create by one man. Correct me if I am wrong.
I believe the idea was his alright, but he got a team of like minds around him. Guess that explains the title on the documentations and earlier posts made here bears Satoshi.

Of course there is a chance Satoshi is not alive anymore. Especially since he was supposed to have been in his forties or fifties, according to many research work. Personally, I think Satoshi is still alive and working on new projects. Perhaps he has already launched a new project under another pseudonym. I am firmly convinced of that.

He may be death or alive.
Satoshi can be organization and live forever.
Who cares, any way?
Enjoy the ride with bitcoin and don't spend time on staff you can't know. :)


Exactly, i would say the same, "who cares?" Just enjoy what you have got and forget about the things that are not of your concern. What if Satoshi is dead? Or what if he is alive and hiding because of some reason? We have gotten something great because of him and we are thankful to him for that, we don't know if he is one individual or a group or something, but we just got bitcoin from him/them so we should just enjoy.

We need to ask psychics, perhaps they will reveal the truth... or create more questions.
Sometimes it is better to believe in the legend than to know the truth.

If Satoshi is dead then someone inherited his bitcoins, wife or other relatives and they would spend it long ago no doubt...
I don't think that nobody of his relatives had no clue of what satoshi was doing, when he was inventing Bitcoin.
There is no guarantee no one other than satoshi himself knows his true identity, maybe he never told his wife or other people because he had fears that they could not keep the secret and could eventually leaked out and eventually his identity be discovered.

He most likely just wants to stay anonymous and is holding some coins. But it is also possible that he has died. That will happen eventually of course, and Bitcoin will continue to survive.

I am having of an idea that satoshi is dead, and I think that he did invent the bicoin and he had some workers that know what he had done and what happened to him. So the point is there are people that might be inherited of satoshis work, and I think the other workers that was not inherited by satoshi create they're own currency that can be related to bitcoin.

Nobody seems to have a good answer to where Satoshi has gone and why he and his coins have not been seen for years.

I can think of only a few reasons why that might be.

1. He wants btc to succeed and knows spending his coins will cause a massive panic.
2. He is already rich and has no need for more money.
3. He was hired/tagged by an agency or institution and is under NDA.
4. He is sick of btc.
5. He hates attention/spotlight and does not want the leadership role.

What if the answer is even simpler? He had a car accident / heart failure and died. His wallets are lost and therefore never spent.

This is so much more reasonable and probable than "satoshi is an AI" or other crazy theories here. It's sad, but I think this might be the truth.

I guess you are right, your theories are a lot of reasonable than the others saying that Satoshi is an A.I which is really ridiculous. The number 5 in your option is probably the right one why Satoshi Nakamoto is hiding himself from the crowd, because he might thinking that many people envy him and wants to kill him for his money, since he is a really rich man because of his Bitcoin, I guess this is his only reason for hiding in a cave, just my opinion.

Yes there is a chance that Satoshi is dead because we don't know his real identity. There is a possibility that before he announced to the world his identity, he died due to some reason but we cannot tell what reason it is. He may have died with car accident, heart attack or someone had murdered him. No one can tell.

yeah, it is possible because he is a human being (according to what most people here say). you know, nobody is immortal. I just wonder, is it possible that someone can keep hiding a big secret without telling someone the truth. I think someone or some people out there know why satoshi is not seen.

So what you think, what type of project he may be working right now?

I think he is already dead and his private keys were hidden somewhere which nobody gonna recover anytime soon. So we don't have to worry about getting him back active and transferring his bitcoin to any exchanger and sell them out.  ;D

I think it is better for bitcoin that he never disclosed his identity, that way there is mystery in the creation of bitcoin, satoshi could be anyone, maybe he is still a user of this forum under other user name, or may be not, we don’t know.

first of all if he died the coins wouldnt just go away, it would just be inherated like people said above me, and thats probably not it, i'd say he just doesnt need to use it all and he knows by doing that he will cause more panic and lose himself money.

If Satoshi was Hal Finney, he ded.

If Satoshi was John Nash, he ded.
If Satoshi is Craig Wraight, he is a jackass.

Any kind of theory crafting about Satoshi's real identity is pure speculation. Everything Op posted might be true.
We need to take into account that over course of years we didn't get any closer to finding out who Satoshi is/was.
At this point it is hard to believe that someone will find a new piece of evidence pointing to who hides under the Satoshi persona.

What keeps me up at night is if craig wright was part of this group and as last man standing has access to the so called
bitcoin trust supposedly made (he claims) and he will have sole access to in 2020.  Like 500 million usd or more by then.

He and others who believe him are running about patenting stuff as we speak.

Likely, it is just the 'long con" on his part...and he is NOT Satoshi (or related with the group of above other 2 guys as he claims)

BUT IF TRUE he will have access to the trust in 2020...

Which leads me to believe ....he will dump big time just to slap us all down (the whole world) for NOT believing him. If he is the anarchist
he claims to be. (and the spiteful little man I suspect he is) :(

He is quite the ASS imho.

I give the odds of like 5 out of 100. But as far as boogieman bitcoin wise..this is a doozy.

If FBI or CIA was eager to find who the hell satoshi is, i am pretty sure they would identify him in a very short time.

In fact, either they already know who he is or there is no need for all this because they are (USA) satoshi.

Do you really think that an anonymous forum account would protect you from the FBI? What about the other admins? If the FBI knocks (or knocked) their doors, they would sing satoshi's identity like birds.

He dead? I don't think so.

If they or he is dead then the bitcoin number that are available is less than it was before so the price may be increased.

Bitcoin value high or low does not depends upon if the bitcoin creator Satoshi live or dead. Bitcoins are being mined and satoshi has nothing to do with that. It does not matter much if we did not know the exact person behind this technology but we do know that whoever he was , he was genius and master mind.

Even if he isnt that guy, im pretty sure he could have been another guy that is now dead. That, or he forget his keys, lost them, or he is a hardcore long term holder.

Even if he used his normal internet connection, most ISP delete logs after a couple of years (but again, I think he used Tor)

Therefore they couldn't catch him.

As far as I can see that we haven't had any idea about who really is Satoshi. Is satoshi a person, a group, a company or even a computer program, this still remains a mystery of mankind. So there could be many possibilities about what happened to Satoshi. But why do we have to bother what has been the case, as long as bitcoin still has certain developments, Satoshi won't be such a big problem.

Satoshi I feel clearly knew that if he would made himself public, he would have been first humiliated and then tortured to death and Bitcoin would never have evolved. It would have ended and that guy took a hit for the future of Bitcoin, but no all we have to do is criticize him for hiding without even understanding that his identity would have meant a sure death for Bitcoin. It is every day we should thank him, for staying anomous and making sure Bitcoin lived forever. We should just respect it and move on.

There is always a chance that an important figure who hasn't said anything for over 5 years is dead, however I would doubt it for now until there is any sort of serious confirmation about it.

I believe he just decided it would be best to leave the community for the time he's been gone, and if he did die then we might just never really get any new information from him or anyone who knew him again.

Satoshi decide to hide himself on the public because of his creation i think hes life is at risk for sure because many would really cease him specially government which are oppose on bitcoins existence.Maybe he still alive and seeing its invention is progressing succesfuly.

Post by: steampunkz on February 12, 2017, 08:21:28 AM
I was so curious reading about this comments so i Search in google and this is what is found.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
While we may not know who he (or she) was, we know what he did. Satoshi Nakamoto was the inventor of the bitcoin protocol, publishing a paper via the Cryptography Mailing List in November 2008.

He then released the first version of the bitcoin software client in 2009, and participated with others on the project via mailing lists, until he finally began to fade from the community toward the end of 2010.

Nakamoto worked with people on the open-source team, but took care never to reveal anything personal about himself, and the last anyone heard from him was in the spring of 2011, when he said that he had “moved on to other things”.

But he was Japanese, right?

Best not to judge a book by its cover. Or in fact, maybe we should.

“Satoshi” means "clear thinking, quick witted; wise". “Naka” can mean “medium, inside, or relationship”. “Moto” can mean “origin”, or “foundation”.

Those things would all apply to the person who founded a movement by designing a clever algorithm. The problem, of course, is that each word has multiple possible meanings.

We can’t know for sure whether he was Japanese or not. In fact, it’s rather presumptuous to assume that he was actually a ‘he’.

We’re just using that as a figure of speech, but allowing for the fact that this could have been a pseudonym, ‘he’ could have been a ‘she’, or even a ‘they’.

Does anyone know who Nakamoto was?

No, but the detective techniques that people use when guessing are sometimes even more intriguing than the answer. The New Yorker’s Joshua Davis believed that Satoshi Nakamoto was Michael Clear, a graduate cryptography student at Dublin's Trinity College.

He arrived at this conclusion by analyzing 80,000 words of Nakamoto’s online writings, and searching for linguistic clues. He also suspected Finnish economic sociologist and former games developer Vili Lehdonvirta.

Both have denied being bitcoin’s inventor. Michael Clear publicly denied being Satoshi at the 2013 Web Summit.

Well, You can't find the Satoshi? than definitely something wrong with him, May be he die, but if he die, than why we not hear about it? now bitcoin is popular because of Satoshi, So Satoshi is not found and or he die, so we should be hear in news? But i am not interesting in Satoshi, because i have interested in bitcoin, and bitcoin has a good position, so don't take tension.

Nobody seems to have a good answer to where Satoshi has gone and why he and his coins have not been seen for years.

I can think of only a few reasons why that might be.

1. He wants btc to succeed and knows spending his coins will cause a massive panic.
2. He is already rich and has no need for more money.
3. He was hired/tagged by an agency or institution and is under NDA.
4. He is sick of btc.
5. He hates attention/spotlight and does not want the leadership role.

What if the answer is even simpler? He had a car accident / heart failure and died. His wallets are lost and therefore never spent.

This is so much more reasonable and probable than "satoshi is an AI" or other crazy theories here. It's sad, but I think this might be the truth.

The chances that he is dead are rather high. He could have been the guy that had that terminal illness and got his body cryogenized, and he was the first miner and the person to recieve a transaction from satoshi himself, I forgot his name, how was it?

Even if he isnt that guy, im pretty sure he could have been another guy that is now dead. That, or he forget his keys, lost them, or he is a hardcore long term holder.

Btw, I just saw the news of Hal Finney bitcointalk account being accessed after years of innactivity (since he is dead) so probably he got hacked. Of course the satoshi rumors started again connecting that event with him:

Its a possibility that he is truly dead because whether he is alive or dead has not stop the growing and popularity of bitcoin and the only thing for me that it has added is the fact that we have so many people claiming they are bitcoin but if he is not dead he should just let us know so that when he eventually dies because everyone will surely do that one day. But he should just help us solve the controversy surrounding his personality and everyone claiming credit for this project...

Bitcoin users would really love for satoshi to reveal himself on public but sadly we didnt even saw the glimpse of him which would really make as curios if hes dead or alive but in my own view i think hes still alive and seeing always on how succesful his project that helps lots of people.

Yeah, it is right, if Sir Satoshi is not found than something is wrong, But i want to ask why we want to know about Sir Satoshi? I think we should know about bitcoin. If we know about Satoshi because of bitcoin, and bitcoin is great for us. Should thank to Satoshi.

Part of the fascination is that he is sitting on 1,000,000,000,000 USD worth of btc. He might be the wealthiest person alive. Part of it is he disappeared with no explanation, nor trace of his identity.

Another part is that BTC needs a leader to unite this SegWit vs BU divide.

With regard to SegWit vs BU divide and the need for a leader to solve it, I do not think it would be solved a 100% satisfactorily or with the consensus of the majority, Because although some leader said which one should follow, people would continue arguing still.

We can also consider these situations too.
1 He is trying to escape from many countries secret service.
2 He is trying to escape from mafia
3 He doesn't want to be a rich man, the idea of to be rich is not okay for him
4 He is waiting to sell his bitcoins.

Maybe you are right, he is already dead. The simplest answer is the right one if you have many options.

He is not obligated to do a thing, if he wants to remain anonymous then that is his right, since remaining anonymous seems to be his choice, any information that he gives about himself could be used to try to identify him, so if satoshi does not want to use his accounts ever again that is fine.

Well the worst part is that we can't know and I doubt that we ever will. If he was truly dead, I believe that he would leave in his last will maybe to reveal his identity. Those AI stories ain't that crazy too, who knows... maybe the government created bitcoin as they did TOR project. We can just speculate until one day, possibly, someone who's the real creator(s) of bitcoin comes forward.

I’m not sure that a government would have created bitcoin. What would the purpose be? If anything, it would hurt a government, since bitcoin is an alternate currency to the government-issued currency. Unless it was meant to track drug trade, but I’m not sure if is possible, since much of the bitcoin code is open-source.

I read a long ago that someone did a deep research on the identification of Satoshi and came up with various probabilities related with the Satoshi. Unfortunately, no one yet could find the real Satoshi (with concrete evidence). We have a list of the candidates who are either claiming to be a Satoshi or someone claimed it.

I went through many posts and articles about the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto and made a list of the suspects,
divided into 1) prime suspects, 2)others, and 3) group/institutions

I assume it is impossible, Satoshi Nakamoto is my idol, but his 3 million bitcoin has never moved, it means he never dumped his 3 million market on the market. But why he doesn't move? He deserves the money, hence it is a little possible to be dead. I am unhappy if he is dead.

Yes, I'm a believer of simpler theories being more correct. I doubt Satoshi himself could've predicted what happened with the Silk Road and where it is now.

He just happened to be in the correct era for previous cryptographic ideas and mass cloud computing power to become a useful asset.

That is another good speculation. It is also possible that satoshi did not reveal himself is because he doesnt need to. If he already has a millions of bitcoin at hand he will not worry anymore about blockchain or anything instead he is just enjoying his life with his accumulated wealth. He will not be worried about bitcoin since there are other developers who joined later on that are helping bitcoin to be a much better coin. Nakamoto is one hell of a billionaire who sits idly today.

he was not suffering cancer, he was sick with ALS, which is much worse than cancer ever will be

besides Hal there was another guy here with 200k coins that was arrested or something, i remember he was talking how police irrupted in his house

with all these example satoshi made the right decision to remain hidden

Actually we don't know who is Satoshi or who is the team behind satoshi (I think that there were or are more people than 1)

If they or he is dead then the bitcoin number that are available is less than it was before so the price may be increased.

You are just speculating which we really can't believe or have any idea who is behind the bitcoin.

Bitcoin value high or low does not depends upon if the bitcoin creator Satoshi live or dead. Bitcoins are being mined and satoshi has nothing to do with that. It does not matter much if we did not know the exact person behind this technology but we do know that whoever he was , he was genius and master mind.

You may think so but you are not right, - my opinion.

Bitcoin price can be very much affected if the Satoshi identity will revealed to the public, it might my good but it can be bad too.

The bitcoins of course that are mined and the first blocks were mined from Satoshi and we think that he has lots of bitcoin which made him very rich.

We can not know who the bitcoin coin writer is, maybe one person, maybe a group of people, so we can not say satoshi is dead, or a car accident. Thanks to satoshi for solving a problem that has been so far untold, it is a question of trust in currency transactions..

If Satoshi is dead then someone inherited his bitcoins, wife or other relatives and they would spend it long ago no doubt...
I don't think that nobody of his relatives had no clue of what satoshi was doing, when he was inventing Bitcoin.
Any action that is hidden will someday be revealed, surely one day we know who satoshi actually. How his face, how it is, etc. this is still a mystery. We can only pray for Bitcoin to always triumph .  Up to several decades or even hundreds of years. Hopefully

Could be that one of this is correct, there are a lot of theories out there as to who Satoshi Nakamoto is and some even go as far as pointing out some prominent figures and saying they are Satoshi. One theory even states that the CIA invented Satoshi. With all these being said, I think a day will come when the world will finally find out who Satoshi is, we might be shocked to discover that satoshi is more of a group than a single person

You are right, Satoshi never revealed his identity to the public and it's make big question that we always ask.I think if he reveals himself he might be targeted by the media, the bad guy, the government, etc. To me Satoshi just wanted to enjoy his life peacefully. Enjoy his money and live peacefully with his family.

I still think that bitcoin was created by a team of developers, not by one person, so some of the creators are still alive. But it is unlikely we will know who it is, although very interesting.

Satoshi is a group of people who form the name satoshi as bitcoin icon. Anyone will die one day. You have sold the coin will create a panic but he has taken advantage of it. Maybe bitcoin can be developed by alien or human civilization itself. 8)

We cannot say that Satoshi is a group/individual.
We cannot say that Satoshi still alive or already died.
But we can say that Satoshi is the greatest inventor of this century and bitcoin always been remarkable to the mind and heart of the people. Even the person behind Satoshi Nakamoto was passed away, the name Satoshi will stay in the earth. The legacy of Satoshi will be preserved even in the future generation.

In my opinion,  I think he might just want to have a peaceful life,  he may use another name or he just want no one could trace him because he don't want to be in a complicated life,  even us want a life like that if we have lots of money,  we don't want our selves to be in danger.

Likely this guy, Dave Kleiman, seems to have the 'most consensus ..he is passed away...

https://gizmodo.com/the-strange-life-and-death-of-dave-kleiman-a-computer-1747092460 (https://gizmodo.com/the-strange-life-and-death-of-dave-kleiman-a-computer-1747092460)

The other scenario is that he also was part of a group that included Craig Wright and Hal Finney..who also is passed away

That will be a nightmare, if true, in that 'supposedly' Craig Wright says on Jan 1st, 2020 he will have access

to a trust set up of Billions of dollars of BTC. With the other 2 of 3 from the group (if this was the case) now passed away, that

would not bode well for the open source nature of Bitcoin..in that Craig Wright is patenting everything

blockchain related he can, If he can have access to these addresses legally, thru the fund, he can prove

he is Satoshi and thus can then claim patents on the works...

https://bitcoinpatentreport.com/2018/02/21/the-truth-about-the-patent-portfolio-of-dr-craig-wright/ (https://bitcoinpatentreport.com/2018/02/21/the-truth-about-the-patent-portfolio-of-dr-craig-wright/)

In that, he pretty much 'hates' the BTC crowd who disavow he is really Satoshi or part of the above group,

that would be bad, very bad for BTC and all crypto, IMHO. Very unlikely, but that is the 'Nightmare Scenario"!!

Nobody seems to have a good answer to where Satoshi has gone and why he and his coins have not been seen for years.

I can think of only a few reasons why that might be.

1. He wants btc to succeed and knows spending his coins will cause a massive panic.
2. He is already rich and has no need for more money.
3. He was hired/tagged by an agency or institution and is under NDA.
4. He is sick of btc.
5. He hates attention/spotlight and does not want the leadership role.

What if the answer is even simpler? He had a car accident / heart failure and died. His wallets are lost and therefore never spent.

This is so much more reasonable and probable than "satoshi is an AI" or other crazy theories here. It's sad, but I think this might be the truth.
Satoshi was heavily involved with the Bitcoin community, and collaborated with them in order to modify the underlying bitcoin protocol. After two years of involvement, Nakamoto handed the reins to Gavin Andresen, and seized involvement with the Bitcoin project in December of 2010. Then, in the Spring of 2011, Nakamoto returned to leave a final message, stating in a post that he had “moved on to other things,” and that Bitcoin was “in good hands with Gavin [Andresen] and everyone.” That was the last the world heard of the secretive Bitcoin creator.  read the link for more details https://blockonomi.com/who-is-satoshi-nakamoto/

he maybe dead but one thing is for sure his legacy of bitcoin will sure grow and remembered thats why we are here, working, trading, advertising and a lot more. im sure his wallet has a lot of bitcoin

since we don't know who is the real of Satoshi, we don't know where is he now and if he still alive or not. maybe we need to have more evidence to prove someone that is the real Satoshi and I think Satoshi itself won't come out and said that he is the real Satoshi. many possibilities that might happen with Satoshi and we can still guessing about what is happen with him. I think if the time is right, maybe he will come out and shows to us who is he and I think he will explain all about bitcoin and now he still covering his self for secure his life.

You cant really tell whether satoshi nakamoto is dead or alive since his identity or even his existense his unknown. The reason behind all that is because of the danger to the crowd since the bitcoin has very high value. He will be really popular if he show his true identity but there is a consequence, he will be in danger for some bad people who only wants to have some money in an easy way. Maybe he's still alive or maybe he's already dead. Thats all I can say.

You know, the thing is that there`s no actual and reliable information about Satoshi. Nobody knows for sure who he is - whether it is a man, a woman, a group of talented enterpreneurs. All this news regarding this person may be simply nothing more than just a fake. It`s important to pay attention to technical expert analysis of cryptocurrencies and not to believe all hype that surrounds Satoshi.

Satoshi does not care whether anyone is paying attention to him or not. I think so. But surely, Satoshi is a very talented person. And with the foundation of Bitcoin, Satoshi deserves what Satoshi needs physically and mentally. Satoshi does not want people to know about the personal information involved except that the recognition of Satoshi has started to change the way transactions through Bitcoin. We should respect Satoshi's intentions.

If satoshi is alive, then he is watching his creation grows. This nerd person is also one of the richest person in the world if he allowed himself to be spotlighted.

I hope that satoshi is in good shape, because if he sells all his holdings then it will be the downfall of Crypto.

Satoshi Nakamoto was very smart in hiding his true identity from the rest of the world.

Satoshi still being a mystery can only mean two things..

 He does not want to be exposed to whom he really is by moving his BTC and being able to be tracked.

Or he is dead and all that his 1 Million BTC is lost forever.

 I read the book Digital Gold: Bitcoin and the Inside Story of the Misfits and Millionaires Trying to Reinvent Money and from what I understand Hal Finney could possibly have been Satoshi but unfortunately is dead.

 I hope that the true Satoshi  is still alive and somehow had a separate stash of BTC that he can live off of.

   He deserves at least that as his genius invention is a blessing to the rest of the world.

Our assumption is that the supply of bitcoin will approach 21 million as specified in the current protocol.  To give some context, the current supply of bitcoin is around 13.25 million, the rate at which bitcoin is released decreases by half roughly every four years, and the supply should get past 19 million in the year 2022.  The key part of this assumption is that the protocol will not be changed.

There could even be millions of reasons out there why Satoshi is nowhere to be found, AI theories are not even crazy than you think it is extremely possible, crazy? I think not, people can make theories about, but I don't think there is a chance that Satoshi would show, I honestly even think that it is not his real identity, its 2018 and this is still a topic we are talking to, if Satoshi would be dead or he is hiding we will never know because he had hid his identity very well.

Well there are many subordinates that could take over in a position of good company like family, relatives and friends. And by taking it over then one can establish a rapport on the side of the owner and its subordinates. And since there is a new owner then it could easily command on retrieving the crypto and the transfer from the original owner of bitcoin to the new owner. And it is so easy to manipulate especially if the owner has a lot of bitcoin's left then sharing it as a form of reward will make the job more easy to accomplish.

Post by: drmilind2004 on May 24, 2018, 03:53:53 PM
It is more likely he is in hiding than dead. Because Satoshi posted a public message in 2014 when people thought Satoshi Dorian Nakamoto was the creator.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/kashmirhill/2014/03/06/bitcoin-creator-returns-to-internet-to-say-i-am-not-dorian-nakamoto/

Legally speaking, if a person is missing for long, and there is no physical trace of that person, whether alive or physical remains; then under the Forensic Law, that person can be declared dead only seven years from the last contact with that person.

Here, we have an online comment from 'Satoshi' in March 2014. So, if there is total silence from him since then, seven full years must necessarily elapse, before he can be considered legally deceased.

That means a legal certification of Satoshi's demise can be made only after March 2021. Hopefully, this rather ungainly prospect should impel 'Satoshi Nakamoto' to make periodic online comments; so as to at least push that date even further, if not to entirely scotch such outrageous rumours!
