i do not think that satoshi nakamoto is dead because i do not care on that but if anyone takes the name and the fame of this system like his relatives or his family members and can really prove that he or she is related to satishi then i am sure that person will become a superstar within a night
i do not think that even from his family no one know that either he created bitcoin or not. otherwise some one must very seriously claimed here. but here we cannot see anyone who can claim and can give solid reason that he is relative of satoshi.

Satoshi dead? I don't think so... I read his new blog post just the other day.  Looks like he changed his mind and wants to cap block size.  Wink

If FBI or CIA was eager to find who the hell satoshi is, i am pretty sure they would identify him in a very short time.

In fact, either they already know who he is or there is no need for all this because they are (USA) satoshi.

Do you really think that an anonymous forum account would protect you from the FBI? What about the other admins? If the FBI knocks (or knocked) their doors, they would sing satoshi's identity like birds.

He dead? I don't think so.

Well, considering that satoshi supposedly always used Tor to enter this forum, all they would get from his posts are Tor ip addresses, which means the FBI would have nothing work with.

Even if he used his normal internet connection, most ISP delete logs after a couple of years (but again, I think he used Tor)

Therefore they couldn't catch him.


Nobody seems to have a good answer to where Satoshi has gone and why he and his coins have not been seen for years.

I can think of only a few reasons why that might be.

1. He wants btc to succeed and knows spending his coins will cause a massive panic.
2. He is already rich and has no need for more money.
3. He was hired/tagged by an agency or institution and is under NDA.
4. He is sick of btc.
5. He hates attention/spotlight and does not want the leadership role.

What if the answer is even simpler? He had a car accident / heart failure and died. His wallets are lost and therefore never spent.

This is so much more reasonable and probable than "satoshi is an AI" or other crazy theories here. It's sad, but I think this might be the truth.

The chances that he is dead are rather high. He could have been the guy that had that terminal illness and got his body cryogenized, and he was the first miner and the person to recieve a transaction from satoshi himself, I forgot his name, how was it?

Even if he isnt that guy, im pretty sure he could have been another guy that is now dead. That, or he forget his keys, lost them, or he is a hardcore long term holder.

I think the name you are looking for is Hal Finney.

You must be joking. The US government has admitted running more TOR exit nodes than any other single entity.

I was so curious reading about this comments so i Search in google and this is what is found.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
While we may not know who he (or she) was, we know what he did. Satoshi Nakamoto was the inventor of the bitcoin protocol, publishing a paper via the Cryptography Mailing List in November 2008.

He then released the first version of the bitcoin software client in 2009, and participated with others on the project via mailing lists, until he finally began to fade from the community toward the end of 2010.

Nakamoto worked with people on the open-source team, but took care never to reveal anything personal about himself, and the last anyone heard from him was in the spring of 2011, when he said that he had “moved on to other things”.

But he was Japanese, right?

Best not to judge a book by its cover. Or in fact, maybe we should.

“Satoshi” means "clear thinking, quick witted; wise". “Naka” can mean “medium, inside, or relationship”. “Moto” can mean “origin”, or “foundation”.

Those things would all apply to the person who founded a movement by designing a clever algorithm. The problem, of course, is that each word has multiple possible meanings.

We can’t know for sure whether he was Japanese or not. In fact, it’s rather presumptuous to assume that he was actually a ‘he’.

We’re just using that as a figure of speech, but allowing for the fact that this could have been a pseudonym, ‘he’ could have been a ‘she’, or even a ‘they’.

Does anyone know who Nakamoto was?

No, but the detective techniques that people use when guessing are sometimes even more intriguing than the answer. The New Yorker’s Joshua Davis believed that Satoshi Nakamoto was Michael Clear, a graduate cryptography student at Dublin's Trinity College.

He arrived at this conclusion by analyzing 80,000 words of Nakamoto’s online writings, and searching for linguistic clues. He also suspected Finnish economic sociologist and former games developer Vili Lehdonvirta.

Both have denied being bitcoin’s inventor. Michael Clear publicly denied being Satoshi at the 2013 Web Summit.

Well, You can't find the Satoshi? than definitely something wrong with him, May be he die, but if he die, than why we not hear about it? now bitcoin is popular because of Satoshi, So Satoshi is not found and or he die, so we should be hear in news? But i am not interesting in Satoshi, because i have interested in bitcoin, and bitcoin has a good position, so don't take tension.

Btw, I just saw the news of Hal Finney bitcointalk account being accessed after years of innactivity (since he is dead) so probably he got hacked. Of course the satoshi rumors started again connecting that event with him:

Its a possibility that he is truly dead because whether he is alive or dead has not stop the growing and popularity of bitcoin and the only thing for me that it has added is the fact that we have so many people claiming they are bitcoin but if he is not dead he should just let us know so that when he eventually dies because everyone will surely do that one day. But he should just help us solve the controversy surrounding his personality and everyone claiming credit for this project...

Bitcoin users would really love for satoshi to reveal himself on public but sadly we didnt even saw the glimpse of him which would really make as curios if hes dead or alive but in my own view i think hes still alive and seeing always on how succesful his project that helps lots of people.

Yeah, it is right, if Sir Satoshi is not found than something is wrong, But i want to ask why we want to know about Sir Satoshi? I think we should know about bitcoin. If we know about Satoshi because of bitcoin, and bitcoin is great for us. Should thank to Satoshi.

Part of the fascination is that he is sitting on 1,000,000,000,000 USD worth of btc. He might be the wealthiest person alive. Part of it is he disappeared with no explanation, nor trace of his identity.

Another part is that BTC needs a leader to unite this SegWit vs BU divide.

With regard to SegWit vs BU divide and the need for a leader to solve it, I do not think it would be solved a 100% satisfactorily or with the consensus of the majority, Because although some leader said which one should follow, people would continue arguing still.

We can also consider these situations too.
1 He is trying to escape from many countries secret service.
2 He is trying to escape from mafia
3 He doesn't want to be a rich man, the idea of to be rich is not okay for him
4 He is waiting to sell his bitcoins.

Maybe you are right, he is already dead. The simplest answer is the right one if you have many options.

Nobody seems to have a good answer to where Satoshi has gone and why he and his coins have not been seen for years.

I can think of only a few reasons why that might be.

1. He wants btc to succeed and knows spending his coins will cause a massive panic.
2. He is already rich and has no need for more money.
3. He was hired/tagged by an agency or institution and is under NDA.
4. He is sick of btc.
5. He hates attention/spotlight and does not want the leadership role.

What if the answer is even simpler? He had a car accident / heart failure and died. His wallets are lost and therefore never spent.

This is so much more reasonable and probable than "satoshi is an AI" or other crazy theories here. It's sad, but I think this might be the truth.

The chances that he is dead are rather high. He could have been the guy that had that terminal illness and got his body cryogenized, and he was the first miner and the person to recieve a transaction from satoshi himself, I forgot his name, how was it?

Even if he isnt that guy, im pretty sure he could have been another guy that is now dead. That, or he forget his keys, lost them, or he is a hardcore long term holder.

Btw, I just saw the news of Hal Finney bitcointalk account being accessed after years of innactivity (since he is dead) so probably he got hacked. Of course the satoshi rumors started again connecting that event with him:

Its a possibility that he is truly dead because whether he is alive or dead has not stop the growing and popularity of bitcoin and the only thing for me that it has added is the fact that we have so many people claiming they are bitcoin but if he is not dead he should just let us know so that when he eventually dies because everyone will surely do that one day. But he should just help us solve the controversy surrounding his personality and everyone claiming credit for this project...
He is not obligated to do a thing, if he wants to remain anonymous then that is his right, since remaining anonymous seems to be his choice, any information that he gives about himself could be used to try to identify him, so if satoshi does not want to use his accounts ever again that is fine.

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...

He is on the idea of being unknown of identity. That's why he make it on a point of developing invention on being able to make transactions without identity. There is no news on what so ever about his personal life.

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.
