John is programming genius, legendary developer of 3D FPS games but he is not Satoshi.

Carmack seems to be a man quite proud of his achievements, I am sure he would release Bitcoin under his own name.

And fo you think that Satoshi would sell himself and work for Facebook? Totally unlikely.

Carmack is very wealthy man, why in the name of Lord he never fixed his teeth?

Everyone is Satoshi according to some people.  At least sometimes people put the effort in like when iamnotback claimed that John Nash was Satoshi, but you've just straight up said a pointless comment with no evidence.

Maybe you just want to feel original.

That's the first time I have seen anyone name him as Satoshi and for good reason.

The video did not really have any relevance.

I still think David Kleiman was Satoshi

Unfortunately David Kleiman died in 2013, we may never have that confirmed.

But I think it's high time that we should stop chasing Satoshi and concentrate of his/their innovation which has made many people rich. Because if Satoshi revels himself, all enforcement agencies will be behind him and he will have to spend the rest of his life behind bars. We surely don't want that to happen!

Haha, still actual task, who is satoshi? I absolutely think some people knows him but wait, don't you think that satoshi was simply name behind bitcoin and when things went wrong (from his side) suddenly he used and removed every information on this name, it's simply like name as mask. To my mind there is no doubt that we see that "satoshi" here many time but we don't know who he is actually.

Sometimes I wonder if Satoshi Nakamoto comes back, what could be the effect on Bitcoin itself and the Bitcoin community. Other than the mass articles that could be suddently published on the not bitcoin related news sites..Or imagine if he has a plan to come back for a purpose.Maybe he is joking at  us with segwit, ect, who know

Another claim? where sick to hear another people claiming that they are satoshi nakamoto. Does they have valid proof that can point out that they are truly the one who's invented it?

And i think it would be best if Satoshi will remain anonymous so that he will leave peacefully without giving a shit to answer on how his life going on right now and how the shit he thinking on why he creates the bitcoins that what we are using right now.

I did not bother to look in the youtube video,in the first place why now is it because Bitcoin needs another pump and John Carmack linking is a good booster,we are ok even if we don't have a concrete proof who is or are satoshi..

I would usually claim that it's just another mindless assumption on yet another satoshi wannabe, but John Carmack is an actual genius, and of all the satoshi proposals i've seen, this one is actually solid.

The problem is... Carmack has been focused on projects that are oriented to graphics, but then again, he is known to spend his time firing up rockets, and also tunned his Ferrari F40 into one of the fastest cars, so he has deep understanding of basically anything that has to do with engineering.

He also has shown some interest in bitcoin:

I am very surprised if the inventor of bitcoin is not Japanese but Australian named John Carmack, When all this time I think the inventor of bitcoin really satoshi Nakamoto, But it's all a pseudonym

Another claim without any proof, all of us who love to use bitcoin are satoshi. There is no need for anybody to find him out and he also don't like to get exposed. I don't think we will ever know who is the real person behind bitcoin and that is quite good thing for continuous growth of bitcoin.

No. I dont think so. Is he claiming he is Satoshi Nakamoto? Nobody is going to believe unless he show us some proof that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. You know everyone can claim the he is Satoshi Nakamoto. But no one has been proven. It looks like you want to give him publicity. I will wait for your proofs.

Another post for chasing wide goose chasing!! However, I have a strong feeling, that Satoshi is not a single person, instead it is a group of programming masters who created this path-braking blockchain technology. I am not saying that Satoshi can't be a single person, but it's my feeling about the mystery of Satoshi.

It is an intriguing idea, but the only reasons for Satoshi to be a group are, in my mind, of "conspiracy" nature, in the sense that one would have created a group to "undermine the financial system" or something like that.  It is not unthinkable that a government or an organization that is not happy with the financial system, or is not happy with the power and wealth that the financial system and the associated economy gives to, say, "western" states, would launch such an initiative.  For instance, I could think of a country like North Korea to be motivated to have the financial system in the west crumble down ; or a terrorist organisation or something like that, if you see bitcoin as a poison pill to kill the western financial system and its economical wealth - and to hold a serious stash of the new system.  It is not unthinkable that Japan sees this as the only way to get its debt problem lingering for 3 decades now, resolved.  It would be ironic that they end up in the hands of the Chinese.  It could be the Chinese government, realizing that the mining will end up concentrated in their country, and lay their hands on the financial instrument of the new world economic system.

But these are *motivations* for Satoshi to be a group: to have set up a task force to achieve something like that.

However, when you look at the actual creative work done to make bitcoin, everything, in my mind, points to "a guy in his basement".  After all, blasphemy as it may sound, bitcoin is not "the work of an absolute genius".  I've seen, in several fields of science, *much more sophisticated work of genius* done by a single person.  Works like Newton, Leibniz, Goedel, Einstein, Galois, Riemann, Witten, Feynman, Fermi, and the list is very long, are each, individually, much, much more sophisticated, involved, and more "stroke of genius" than bitcoin.  

That said, there are bright ideas in bitcoin, but the important point is, in 2008, most of them were actually already laying on the table, and (failed but interesting) attempts at e-cash had already been done.   When you look at the references of the Satoshi bitcoin paper, you find all these ideas, from the hash cash proof of work, to the kind of block chain to have a distributed time ordering, to the peer-to-peer network etc....

It just needed to be put together in the right order, and "have the idea".  Now, a GROUP never has "the idea".  That's always the insight of a single person.  A group helps to have MANY ideas, or to work out MANY aspects of the solutions.  But a group never has a bright insight: that's always the work of a single mind.

So it only needed ONE SINGLE MIND to put all the pieces of the puzzle, that were on the table since the last decade, together in one system.  That's the brilliant idea of Satoshi.  It only takes "a day" to get that idea, and "a week" to formalize it.  Then, it could have been a group that programmed it, but as far as I heard, the code was not of very high quality.  Most probably, a *single person* wrote that code, implementing, with some difficulties, the idea he had.

Now, of course, if a group wanted to hide that it was a group, it could of course MIMICK the somewhat "clumsy" work of an individual, that's true.  So the fact that it *could* have been done by a single individual doesn't mean it has.   It could be a single individual, as a mission for a group, and the group eliminated him  when the mission was complete.  Hard to say.

People wont accept Satoshi Nakamoto just like that,he has to provide the proofs that he is indeed the creator and even then i highly doubt he will be properly credited for the work,things have grown out of proportion than what he started and it is a billion dollar technology now and people are having their positions in the echo system and ego will play in approving anyone,look at the situation of Gavin now,i think it is really hard even for the real person behind the technology to provide any valid proof to claim his position.
