does anyone know their addresses
No one knows until next year

"The existing Visa credit card network processes about 15 million Internet purchases per day worldwide. Bitcoin can already scale much larger than that with existing hardware for a fraction of the cost. It never really hits a scale ceiling."  Satoshi Nakamoto, April 2009          Avoiding taxes is totally legal if you consider and respect the law.

I need Help finding/ recovering my bitcoins off an old hard drive!!
I am very primitive when it comes to computers do not know coding, Python or any other PC language just a simple Windows operator!

 Any bitcoin/blockchain specific identifying file, cookies, programs, scripts.... names to plug in to the recovery software search that would hint to existence of bitcoin/ wallet or blockchain on the old hard drives?
any Windows software that I can download/ buy to find/ recover them?
What do you recommend to see if it's worth going to the next step of professional recovery?? 

Thank you all.

I don't think we can actually classify which one is from Satoshi Nakamoto. We can but not at all, there are so many combinations of addresses in the blockchain all of them are transparent but we can't classify who own them, maybe in the future there will be someone who can specify all of the Satoshi Nakamoto's Bitcoin addresses and for sure it will be great news to all of us because finally, we can able to track if Satoshi is moving his bitcoin into other's wallet, or anything like that.
Also, I don't think Satoshi own exactly 980,000 BTC's for sure in a matter of time it'll lessen.

How do we know if Satoshi has never moved any of the coins if we are unsure of exactly what wallets he controlled?
Are there people out there actively watching all his "supposed" wallets.

For the sake of community, I think it would be fair for any person out there who has done the leg work and compiled a list of address "most likely" to be Satoshi's should share it in a .txt or .csv file so the community can all freely analyse these addresses and place watches on them for any future movement of coins from them.

Where do you know Satoshi is holding 980000 bitcoins? I don't think any one knows the addresses belong to Satoshi. So the number of coins Satoshi owns is also unknown.
I think he'll help us to find Satoshi whereabouts. Maybe we'll start from there to get one of the address. OP I think you should ask the people that gave you the total amount of bitcoin that Satoshi holds (980,000) about the addresses cos we don't know

Harold Thomas Finney II, a southern California coder, was Satoshi. He claimed to have received the first transaction from Satoshi just a few days after the genesis block. I think he sent the transaction to himself. Satoshi used a @gmx.com mail address. Finney was the very first person to post on the Sourceforge page of Bitcoin using a @gmx.com address. His vernacular and writing style are almost identical to the posts of Satoshi.

Finney knew in late 2009 that he was dying of ALS. The “Satoshi” persona was a necessary creation to remove him from the limelight. Bitcoin was too much for him to control while dealing with the onset of a terminal disease. He turned over the alert keys to Gavin Andresen and backed away from an active role in the development of his creation.

He knew his creation would never be trusted if most of the initially mined “testing” coins were ever to show up on the market so those coins were never spent. He may have intentionally disposed of the private keys to many of the addresses to ensure they would never hurt his brainchild. Some of the coins he mined in the beginning were used to pay for medical bills and cryogenic preservation of his body after his death. Those “Satoshi” addresses are as dead as Hal Finney.

Hal Finney would be my favorite pick out of the candidates for being Satoshi. He was an amazing inspiring person without the Satoshi identity.

Bitcoin and me (Hal Finney) is one of the posts he wrote.

...

Here is my 2 cents.  Roll Eyes

I do not believe Satoshi ever conceived that this experiment would become this successful and that bitcoins would become this valuable. I think he only mined coins in the beginning to get things going and he most probably lost most of the private keys for those mined coins. <This was just a testing exercise>

Remember, back then most of these coins was virtually worthless, so throwing them around and playing with them was not a big deal. Just imagine if Satoshi has to emerge now and admit that he lost all of the private keys for those coins that was mined in the early days.  Grin

If Bitcoin was solely Hal's creation, he actually made a post early on in the developer section of the sourceforge Bitcoin board where he talked about the price of bitcoin increasing relative to a potentially growing user base vs supply and demand in terms of the world population etc.,

If I recall correctly it ended with him saying that this was "something to think about" ? or something to that effect. I will dig it out and post it if I can find it perhaps.

Congratulations to Satoshi on this first alpha release.  I am looking
forward to trying it out.

It's interesting that the system can be configured to only allow a
certain maximum number of coins ever to be generated. I guess the
idea is that the amount of work needed to generate a new coin will
become more difficult as time goes on.

One immediate problem with any new currency is how to value it. Even
ignoring the practical problem that virtually no one will accept it
at first, there is still a difficulty in coming up with a reasonable
argument in favor of a particular non-zero value for the coins.

As an amusing thought experiment, imagine that Bitcoin is successful and
becomes the dominant payment system in use throughout the world.  Then the
total value of the currency should be equal to the total value of all
the wealth in the world. Current estimates of total worldwide household
wealth that I have found range from $100 trillion to $300 trillion. With
20 million coins, that gives each coin a value of about $10 million.

So the possibility of generating coins today with a few cents of compute
time may be quite a good bet, with a payoff of something like 100 million
to 1! Even if the odds of Bitcoin succeeding to this degree are slim,
are they really 100 million to one against? Something to think about...

The people who owns bitcoin in the begging already became millionaires.
