What happens when a person whose existence is not confirmed is nominated to win a Nobel Prize? Usually, this doesn’t happen, but considering the fact that we have no idea who the creator of bitcoin really is, we might soon be witness to a world first.

Satoshi Nakamoto, which is the pseudonym of the creator of bitcoin, has his name on a paper published in 2008, talking about the concept of digital currencies, but also about what bitcoin is truly meant to be.

While for all we know, the person might not even exist, this hasn’t managed to stop UCLA Professor of Finance, Bhagwan Chowdhry to nominate Nakamoto to receive the Nobel Prize in economics.

Rewarding this individual/organization/ under the cover name of Satoshi Nakomto would be certainly better that wasting your awards on some known but now so brilliant discoveries.
Plus Nobel Committee won't have to waste money prize - since there is very slim chance that Satoshi is gonna receive Prize himself.

UCLA Professor of Finance, Bhagwan Chowdhry can accept the award on behave of Satoshi Nakamoto and the reward can be donated to a charity if it isn't claimed. There should be a relevant charity linked to the bitcoin industry, and otherwise War Child or the Red Cross are always good candidates.

if only the bitcoin foundation had more credibility in the community then the prize could've gone to them.

Satoshi Nakamoto is the person worthy of Nobel Prize. He contributes to the economy more than 99% of other winners.
