Bitcoin is in many main languages but not Japanese. Why would the guy who created it not make it in his own language? Don't you find it suspicious MtGox is in Japan?
Also the project really isn't a success. A lot of progress still has to be made. Security is still an issue along with sites still growing. Anyone ever even talk to him? I'm not saying he isn't real I'm just putting this out there.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

Satoshi is anonymous. Nobody know if he's a girl or a boy. Nobody knows his nationality, except that he doesn't talk Japanese and doesn't code like a Japanese.

Satoshi is truly an anonymous benefactor of mankind.

I don't understand what you're implying. That Satoshi isn't his (her?) real name? Did anyone ever think it was?Or that the white paper popped into existence out of thin air?

Still around.

He's obviously at least one real person. Someone wrote the paper and interacted with the current developers on the project over IRC, someone who has excellent command of the English language, is a C++ programmer who likes Hungarian Notation and a cypherpunk who takes his/her anonymity rather seriously.

Why would the guy who created it not make it in his own language?

You do realize that if your born in the USA your an American citizen yes? You name stays the same as your previous generations even if they were born in Japan.

Are you saying that someone named Jürgen is German even if they are born in the USA?

Good job, you finally got around to reading a wiki article that most people already knew about. Are you going to tell us next that the sun rises every morning?

People tried tracking him back in 2010, turns out some of the emails he sent originate from internet cafe's and public libraries in Tokyo. So the person at least physically resides there. I'd say there is a high likelihood he is of Japanese descent as well.

Why does perfect English have to mean he is not natively Japanese?
Considering his staggering expertise in cryptography, programming and mathematics I wouldn't say it's too far-fetched to think he is extremely well-educated, maybe even self-learned.

Not being from the UK or USA doesn't automatically mean you make grammatical errors, spelling mistakes or use poor language.

I'm not saying that Satoshi is not a smart guy, but I think the creation of bitcoin or something very similar was inevitable.

Read through this blog post for something eerily similar:
http://unenumerated.blogspot.com/2005/12/bit-gold.html

Plus there was b-money (http://weidai.com/bmoney.txt) and hashcash, etc

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

That's too similar to what bitcoin became to be a coincidence.

It must be Satoshi (or the people behind him) who wrote that as a precursor.

Quote from: Nick Szabo
Myself, Wei Dai, and Hal Finney were the only people I know of who liked the idea (or in Dai's case his related idea) enough to pursue it to any significant extent until Nakamoto (assuming Nakamoto is not really Finney or Dai). Only Finney (RPOW) and Nakamoto were motivated enough to actually implement such a scheme.

Food for thought

His surname is Hungarian,
and so is the name of the guy who runs the largest bitcoin exchange in the world,
which just coincidentally happens to be run in Japan.

Mark Karpelés and Nick Szabo also both write fluent English and have common angloamerican first names atypical to their countries (unless both were really born in the US or another English speaking country)

Too much of a coincidence?
