As part of a newly published roadmap for the Bitcoin Foundation, executive director Bruce Fenton has suggested removing bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto as a founding member.

Though he called for the removal of all founding members from the organisation, Fenton singled out Nakamoto's inclusion as "not accurate", arguing that he or she was never involved in the group's creation.

How about we remove TBF? How can they even think of such a thing. If there was no Satoshi there would have been no Bitcoin. No Bitcoin = no Bitcoin Foundation.
That's quite simple actually. He even wants to remove Gavin. Instead of focusing on important matters he decides to kick Satoshi and Gavin out, good job.

Maybe Bruce Fentom wants to be the founder of Bitcoin.  Roll Eyes

I appreciate this move from Bruce. It is better to keep the founder clean from all the scams.

This is equivalent of removing Jesus from Christianity.  Just because he didn't specifically found your church (foundation), doesn't mean he's not the SOURCE of your religion.

I support Bruce's decision whole heartedly.

Good to exclude and distance Satoshi from the disorganized, disgusting, bankrupt cesspool known as the Bitcoin Foundation.

Good on Gavin and Bitcoin Core Devs to leave that roach motel when they did.

I support Bruce in this as a member of the foundation.

This is equivalent of removing Jesus from Christianity.
Sometimes it's appropriate. If your church is a shitpile of ignorance and hatred, you don't deserve to be associated with Jesus. The Westboro Baptist Church, for example, fully deserves to get raided by time-traveling Crusaders from the 13th century.

Bruce doesn't want Satoshi's good name sullied by the past shenanigans of the foundation, that's all.

Good to exclude and distance Satoshi from the disorganized, disgusting, bankrupt cesspool known as the Bitcoin Foundation.
Bruce is doing what he can to change this perception, and ceasing the exploitation of Satoshi's name is a great start.

Why not leave him on as an honorary member? Just like universities give honorary degrees to people who never attended but who's work in real life the university wants to acknowledge?

Let's not have the Bitcoin Foundation be as self-aggrandizing as most modern universities. They're not "acknowledging work", they're cleverly associating themselves with famous smart people for marketing purposes.

Which is exactly what the Foundation did by pretending it was in any way associated with Satoshi Nakamoto. Bruce is correcting that mistake, he is also the only reason I now wear the foundation badge as my avatar.

You didn't understand this? "Bitcoin Foundation" wants Satoshi to come and tell "Don't remove me!". Then, they will write "We found Satoshi Nakamoto!" and take the credit. Awesome, right?!

I have a hunch that it was done to get some fame/popularity. They ain't that stupid, are they?

The fact that NO ONE claims to have ever met him ,and only communicated through email/this forum seems to fishy.  Also the fact that none of his BTC has been moved seems to reinforce the fact that its not just some random guy, and more likely has some sort of intelligence background.  Makes me uneasy about btc.  I say remove "him".

He didn't have to go there at this point.  Fix the affairs of TBF first, then he gets to do what he wants even if its an unpopular decision.

They are talking about the Bitcoin Foundation, not Bitcoin itself  Roll Eyes (satoshi never had anything to do with the bitcoin foundation they just listed him as a founding member to appear to have cred).

Well, it could avoid accidents like the one when his/her e-mail account was "stolen" and then happened the mess in SF and e-mails spread even to theymos.
Other than that, I can't see why remove Satoshi.
