 The motivation has obviously been the success of bitcoin.

Exactly.  Satoshi wasn't doing it to get rich.
Money is just one way of convincing people to do something that they weren't otherwise going to do.
But there are things more convincing than money.  He understood that very well.

Thanks for the share, that was very interesting.
Yeah I agree with you guys that he didn't actually do it for money, he wanted his idea to be successful!

Very interesting!
It think we could find more information with deeper research.

Whatever Satoshi did, you cannot deny that must have been a blazzing fast computer! Powerful computer denotes resources, resources denotes connections.... either that or they GPU mined just for fun!

Going by previous calculations, if they are accurate, he was working with around 7mH in 2009. That's not terribly powerful.. just a decent number of new-to-the-market GPUs--or equivalent processing power.

Example, several universities and companies around the world have a GPU farm room for heavy mathematics. Could've bribed someone to let him use them.

Maybe he was a sys admin and just ran bitcoin on servers unbeknownst.

I need to start playing with this data. Is there a parser for python? I'm not awesome at many languages.

Do you even mine?

Nope, though he is a Lutheran, so the "Reformation Day" Oct 31 release of hte whitepaper might jibe...

Knuth has been called the "father" of the analysis of algorithms.

this could explain the 32 bit nonce thing

He has expressed his disagreement directly to both the United States Patent and Trademark Office and European Patent Organization.[6]

smart property/blockchain solves this

Oct 30, 2008 - It seems that Donald Knuth had his bank accounts attacked not once but three times using his checking account number off of checks he sent

JULY 20, 2008 · 10:46 AM
I came across an interview with Donald Knuth from June of this year, in which he throws some cold water on the current trend toward multicore computers. An excerpt:

…I might as well flame a bit about my personal unhappiness with the current trend toward multicore architecture. To me, it looks more or less like the hardware designers have run out of ideas, and that they’re trying to pass the blame for the future demise of Moore’s Law to the software writers by giving us machines that work faster only on a few key benchmarks! I won’t be surprised at all if the whole multithreading idea turns out to be a flop…

That's some incredible detective work there.

I'm guessing that the secret message will be fully decoded by the world's best supercomputers in the future. Unfortunately, I can already tell you that the answer is:

Now we just need to know the question.

We'll find out whatever satoshi felt like letting us know.  Given cryptography is precisely the art of hiding information, and he is one of the best of all time.  Very interesting research here, I'm gonna tip sergio for this one.

Do you even mine?

Great writing too.  Awesome.

Sent WITH fee, to urgently show my gratitude ;-)

No really.  This kind of work is extremely creative and puts the fun in bitcoin.  It'll bring people to appreciate the mystery.  <3

Do you even mine?

The imbalance was due to an optimization on the hardware, such as using gray codes for counting
This part of the article seems to be completely ignored by the community...

Of course I gave you bad advice. Good one is way out of your price range.

I am pretty convinced that Donald Knuth is Satoshi, can anyone find and compare code written by Donald Knuth and the original source code? I believe the answer to who Satoshi is lies in the original source code. The art of computer programming is a book written by Knuth and just like art created by Davinci, Bitcoin is a masterpiece with the artist's signature brush strokes developed from years of experience and unfathomable genius.

It can further improve Killerstorm's idea. Well, now this is useless for anyone except ASIC designers.
