On November 26, 2017, we broke the news that a former SpaceX employee claimed Elon Musk was “probably” Satoshi Nakamoto, the founder of Bitcoin. Bitcoin was founded in 2008 and claimed under the pseudonym “Satoshi Nakamoto”, the rumored holder of over one million Bitcoins.

The mystery of Satoshi has been a hot topic in the cryptocurrency world, with entrepreneurs often claiming and denying responsibility. Many people jumped at the chance to elicit a response from Musk, with little success on the first day.

In less than 48 hours, the news reached Musk, who turned to Twitter to debunk the claims in true Musk fashion:

“Not true. A friend sent me part of a BTC a few years, but I don’t know where it is.”

I think we should really keep this question aside - "Who is Satoshi?" because a secret should remain secret unless the Secret holder themselves decide to break it in front of the public. We can all see that after Bitcoin has gained too much value, a small spark in the name of "I believe I know Satoshi, this is he, they are them, blah blah" gains a lot of attention in the media and when you use names like Elon Musk, I think there's no doubt left that he could "also" be Satoshi but after he claimed that he isn't, this shows that nobody till date has proved/can prove the legitimacy of being Satoshi as well the REAL SATOSHI will never show up.

Many people could not yet accept the fact that it seems to be impossible to track Satoshi Nakamoto. His personality is really representing the Bitcoin saga. The founder must be anonymous and untraceable inorder to protect his name and privacy as what cryptocurrency should be. Well, we might not even know for sure if he is an individual or a group of people working together. I might assume that maybe even the man's family is still not fully aware of his mysterious details and that he founded a revolution called Bitcoin and the blockchain technology. Personally speaking, it does not matter at all if Satoshi remained to be a great mystery as we have to respect his decision to just fade away and never to return into the limelight again now that Bitcoin is already very famous and valuable.

That will change the fact that you recognise who is hiding behind the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto? For me the important thing is that he has given us the opportunity to earn a lot of money and be free. But the constant rising price of bitcoin may make it inaccessible to us. To buy it we have no money and no opportunity to earn.

I also thought about it. Imagine if, according to the forecasts, by the end of next year, bitcoin reaches the rate of $ 40,000. Who can buy it? You need to be rich enough to afford to buy only one bitcoyne. It turns out, bitkoyn in the future will only be for the rich people. The rest will be content with only a certain amount of Satosh.

Mysk is called a genius but he wasn't really into cryptography back when Satoshi started it all and he didn't research cryptocurrencies like he does with cars, batteries, spaceships and green energy. It's just not his field of interest so I don't think he had anything to do with it. There are many smart people in the world we don't have to look for the answers at the same source every time.
