Why the king of bitcoins would leave everything without saying anything? He might be sick and something bad happened to him or he just wanted to stop spending time here because he had already lots of money .

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.

He of course can be dead, as Hal Finney is (peace on him). You know sometimes you do not really know what life can reserves you...
if we do not know about him. no one has any idea about him either he is man or woman either he is in fact present or it is a imaginary name no one know know about him so anything ca happen may be he is died in car accident may he is alive no clear idea to anyone about him.

No point in speculation, he obviously wanted to disappear and he was smart enough to do it without being tracked down.If he's gone he didn't want anyone to know who he was if he's here it is his current choice. Let it go I say.

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 know some sound very unlikely but I still mention them because I didn't want to make any prejudgments.
Please let me know about other potential candidates. Happy Birthday Bitcoin!

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.

What if Satoshi was actually from the future and left us the concept of bitcoins so we would be able to avoid a future war against the government about the fiat currency? Shocked

There's too much possibilities. Satoshi can be a fake name. Satoshi can be dead, rich, or wanted. Satoshi might be a name of a group of people. Satoshi never actually existed and the first people just made up the name Satoshi so people would think that the founder has already left but the actual founder of bitcoin is just hiding at plain sight.

Regardless of what has happened to Satoshi, we're still going to be enjoying bitcoins. Although some information about him would blow up the bitcoin-related parts of the Internet.
The existence of bitcoin is already mysterious enough that I do not think we need to add any kind of fantastical scenario, Satoshi was most likely a genius with a peerless intellect to be able to dominate so many difficult topics, like coding, economics and cryptography.

Quite the hyperbole, sure he made a great thing but a genius? I don't know seems like a cypherpunk who figured out a currency and it went from there.

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.

Also, reading about Hal Finney being Swatted in his last year of life while suffering cancer, I am not curious why Satoshi would hide.

Why the king of bitcoins would leave everything without saying anything? He might be sick and something bad happened to him or he just wanted to stop spending time here because he had already lots of money .

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.
