Satoshi won't reveal himself until our present catches up with his 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

So if Satoshi returns before he cashes out his coins, something has gone wrong in the future and his is back to fix it?

He could also just buy Intel stock in the 30'es when they made mechanical calculators at $8.

I think that money could be better used to find out who the federal reserve board members are, all Satoshi did was create a digital currency, this person is hardly the terrifying threat people scream about I don't think, then again, who knows? But it's not like I've seen anything hugely evil come out of Bitcoin, unless of course he's a hacking master and somehow planted a super secret virus that's going to take over everyones computers.

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...

one heck of a random group of people there.....

A Nobel Prize in Economics is much better than money as incentive for Satoshi to reveal himself

If Satoshi were willing to reveal himself for money, wouldn't it make more sense for him to just cash out his holdings?

Anyway, if Satoshi came back, he'd probably end up with the SCAMMER tag because of some obscure bug two years ago which caused loss of 6,000BTC which Satoshi refuses to pay for.

Just people I could think of off the top of my who had an idea or principles that were attacked not on the beliefs but on the person's character.

Just no way for him to reveal his identity.

The small group of early adopter hold together at least 1M
I bet satoshi holds 250K buried 15 feets under is garden.

It will never be safe, nor his family
$5M just on a private key... (or 10 ok)

In 5 years maybe, with a better security or a better BTC legitimacy.


Lost coins only make everyone else's coins worth slightly more. Think of it as a donation to everyone.
it has lots of buttery taste..

His address seems too recent and low on funds... http://blockchain.info/address/1AkqxLJn8H6Cg5VAaYijzj7hQUSeM2LJ3r?sort=1

At least someone who had a similar idea without puting it in practice sees Bitcoins' value intead of being jealous because someone else did it. Or maybe... Grin

I googled around about Wei Dei and his "bmoney" idea is quite complete. The proof of work principle is the later addition by Satoshi. So if it's him, he just made up an alias and added the last detail? Why not just publishing the proof of work idea as Wei Dei and then start with the white paper under the alias? Unless he believed that giving the impression of two different people was clever.

So let's begin to use the donation to promote awareness in economics circle? Smiley
