You can write on the blockchain

Wikileaks has put evidence on the blockchain

How wikileaks was first involved in bitcoin
At the time satoshi disappeared, wikileaks announced it was using bitcoin as paypal had terminated their account
Satoshi did not want any undue attention and disappeared

I don't think he was asking you to use the words "satoshi" and "wikileaks" in the same sentence. I think he was asking you to describe the actual connection between them. Wink

I do not think you really know what you are talking about. If you did, you might have told us that both Satoshi and Julian Assange were members of the cypherpunks mailing list.

Very interesting all your theories

4) Decentralized - How to make it centralized *Theory* (Would need a lot of Investment Huh what would it look like - polished. )

Looks like Bitcoin was a NSA code leaked by a Libertarian scared of Central Bank Control *Theory*



They are interesting and lead to things I am not privy to


Bitcoin's first main competitor was Etheruem (big money, very polished, and a lot of solutions but centralized)

NSA or Intelligence agencies were researching peer to peer currency

Currency and other assets are always centralized and monoplized for individual greed

Hence why would bitcoin be a viable solution

That was actually interesting. It's like they enjoy spreading paranoia.

Here is the first (to my knowledge) document in cryptocurrency, made available in 1996 to an MIT mailing list and created by the NSA: http://groups.csail.mit.edu/mac/classes/6.805/articles/money/nsamint/nsamint.htm

It's certainly possible contributors to this document played some role (as Satoshi Nakamoto are otherwise) to Bitcoin. It's also possible, maybe likely, the origin of Bitcoin was inspired through this document.

Never heard of this before, it seems at least an interesting read considering when was made, but i doubt there is some direct connection with Bitcoin.

I'll have a look to it and see if anything comes up.

The worst thing in all of this is we might never really know what or who created bitcoin.
