What do you think of the idea?
How much money do you think could be raised?
Are there any technical difficulties?

Would be great there was a torrent file of all referenced materials of the paper: "How to Build Time-Lock Encryption" by Tibor Jager. And having its magnet link published on bitcoin blockchain!

Even good intended it would become a bounty.

I have the same question.

To Satoshi? I really think we have to come up with a better incentive than money.

I hope it's to Satoshi. I can't wait to reveal myself as him as soon as the funding has reached fuck-off money levels.

He deserves the "key to Internet" not money!




Who would be the person to give him that?

Maybe, we could simply encrypt private keys with Satoshi's PGP Public Key and make them public.
But I think would be cooler having a single heap so that the amount of money raised got really enticing.
Anyway, I think is possible to have it set so that after a certain amount of time the money, if available, is given back.

Would be great there was a torrent file of all referenced materials of the paper: "How to Build Time-Lock Encryption" by Tibor Jager. And having its magnet link published on bitcoin blockchain!

Blockchain.info and other instant wallet sites could have this functionality: "Public to Satoshi".
It would add that address and its encrypted (with Satoshi's PGP public key) private key to a public list that only Satoshi could make use of.
Actually even clients could have that functionality
I think that would be cool  Cool

It would be cooler if he actually moves some of the amount. Nice bait.

I'm guessing he has 100,000+ BTC, so he's probably not motivated by money.

And how could we tell, that it is indeed the private key to that address that's encrypted with Satoshis PGP?
The creator of such address could just keep the priv.key to himself, PGP-encrypt some junk message and tell us anything we are stupid enough to believe.

He would probably sweep it all so everyone participating would get to know and be sure it was him moving the money.

Well, the problem is, that you could only tell after all the money is already gone.
The scammer wouldn't even need to hide anymore after Satoshi (IF ever) shows up just to tell us that there is no priv-key encrypted but only a nice "...aaaand it's gone." msg.

Anyway, i don't really see the point in offering Satoshi bitcoins,
maybe he'd be more interested in hookers, or cheese-cake.

I don't want him to come out. I think going into hiding was the best thing for himself and for Bitcoin. I dislike single points of failure and all people (Satoshi included) are fallible. The 'Satoshi' demi-god we talk about so often of course isn't fallible because he isn't an actual person. Satoshi has become a symbol and I would prefer it to stay that  way for the foreseeable future.

Why would you spend time and money trying to collect funds and offering them to a person or persons who chose to remain unknown and move on with their lives?

Why don't you plant a tree, test the next release of the Bitcoin Client, help translate MultiBit, or donate to Bitcoin100? Or donate coins to archive.org?

They're there, in their room.
Your mining rig is on fire, yet you're very calm.

I believe that Satoshi staying anonymous is the best thing for Bitcoin and likely best for Satoshi.


Sometimes when someone has a great idea and you cannot beat the idea, it is easier to attack the character of the person who had the idea.

"You use Bitcoin? You do know that the creator is a huge racist/homophobe/anti-semite/pervert/<insert your slander here> don't you?"

MLK - womanizer
Mohammad - pedophile
Ron Paul - racist
Thomas Jefferson - slave owner
etc...

Satoshi won't reveal himself until our present catches up with him in the future. Think - if you could travel back in time and needed a system to guarantee you were crazy rich when you returned, Bitcoin would be exactly the system you'd end up with! No startup capital required as an initial investment, no reliance on governments that could take a dive, no inflation, or tax issues, or anything! Just mine a few blocks, help the project get started, and get enough people hooked... then return back to the future famous and super wealthy. Hats off, future Satoshi, who is probably reading this post in the archives, it worked. Grin
