So he went through all the trouble of concealing his identity. Yet he neglected not to use his real name?

Soooo..some lady at Newsweek managed to do what so many others failed to do for years.

Kinda reminds me of how a mainstream news guy managed to "find" Bin Laden.

I'm grumpy!!

Very interesting read... Quite and humble genius is how I would imagine inventor of Bitcoin to be (obviously he is a bit more complex than my imagination).

this...


Absolutely.

You want to get in touch with a guy you know nothing about except he did a brilliant cryptographic work.

Yet you learn that he loves playing with train models. How ? When ?
And then you find a British train model company that will give you his "email address" just because you ask.
And then the guy closes his door on you but you still manage to get a picture of him posing in the country.
And you also get to talk to all of his relatives as easily as that.

In a few days we will "learn" that :
- the guy on the photo is a paid actor
- the house has been rent by the newspaper and is today filled with cameras
- the car has been bought from the previous tenant in order to match the one on Google Street View
- bad people do bad things to get money
- the "relaunch" of the newspaper failed.

Great !

Cue Geraldo in five, four, three, two ….

The printing press heralded the end of the Dark Ages and made the Enlightenment possible, but it took another three centuries before any country managed to put freedom of the press beyond the reach of legislators.  So it may take a while before cryptocurrencies are free of the AML-NSA-KYC surveillance plague.

Oh really...  Roll Eyes


Keep in mind he chose his "Bitcoin name" in 2008 when he published his paper. Long before bitcoin actually existed, much less became a big deal. So privacy may not have been a big deal at first, and would have gradually grown into a bigger deal by degrees over time. By then, he couldn't change his online name. All he could do is hide in plain sight.

Fair point. I'm just trying to figure this out myself. Compared to past attempts to ID Satoshi, I think this claim is much, much stronger. My gut tells me it's him (and I'm very sad for him, from what I'm reading. I wish/hope everyone gives him the privacy he wants.)

Ah it feels good to be on, again!  BLOODYHURRAY!!!  This is not the real story!  Short Version:  My name is Jim Spellman.  I am a average joe. I have other inventions out in the world today disrupting old ways by the biggest in Silicon Valley.  I did research in 2006 and discovered the Blockchain.  I researched federal currency laws for another year and found virtual tokens legal.  I theorized a virtual token during 2007.  I spent a year in Phoenix as a cab driver meeting customers to find a coder to build my Bitcoin. Out of all the programmers i met, no one knew crptography language, until i met Satoshi Nakamoto.  Satoshi was shocked that a taxi driver would even know anything about Blockchain.  We talked more, we theorized,  we planned the building of the Bitcoin platform. We got to work in March 2008! We presented a white paper to the crypto world in November 2008. In Jan. 2009, We presented to the world a working model ready. Some of Satoshi's friends helped in beginning platform processes. In 2011, Satoshi, got bored acting like me a flaming brit, and with some health concerns and my deteriorating eyesight, we decided to ask Gavin Andreissen to run bitcoin and follow our protocols of rules.  Now after the fiasco of journalists in March 2014, Satoshi sent me a copy of all paperwork and 24,636 mined 50 Satoshi PGP keys.  I have since locked everything up in a special blockchain vault on a new invention. Can't spend until Bitcoin is a complete success.  I will know when that is when.  To clear up some notions:  Satoshi built the Bitcoin for Jim Spellman's project on NDA procedures. I have a 2nd part to Bitcoin still to come along with videos and writings, diagrams soon to make it mainstream proof.  More technologies to add to Blockchain and Sidechains. Satoshi Nakamoto is a great mathematician, coder,father and a honorable warrior!  Satoshi is American Japanese.  BITCOIN was built in Arizona and California. We fuck with you with "Brit" humuor. He is very much alive and i talked to him a few months ago.  Bitcoin has not worked completely by plan and Satoshi is a little upset with me today.  Also do not sell our writings, as someone has recently done.  They're our writings!! Unethical!  I will not pull 1 PGP key to prove, until correct time to spend them. Satoshi is everywhere!  He just does not want to deal with the press, gov., or anyone else.  That is my job as it is my project. The keys severely locked up, so we won't be donating any.  You can donate to me, SotoshiWizz if you would like, as we are living on very little to keep the integrity of the platform in check. I am a American with a clean background check. I wouldn't ruin my reputation for looking like a troll, but i did build BITCOIN!!
