In that I am the sole person, or first, anyway, to have been deported from modern Estonia...

Satoshi knows who I am, almost from my first post here.  Too many direct and true statements I made.  It is entirely obvious to him.

You have to understand that, as a community, we are pretty skeptical of people who claim to know or be Satoshi Nakamoto without definitive proof. Using the blockchain there are ways to prove this, or at least provide substantial evidence to back such claims. We have people left and right claiming to be Satoshi... some are even making their own forks of altcoins as we speak, throwing their weight around to back said coins under the pretense that they are Satoshi.

No doubt Bowery is a fine programmer and has an extensive knowledge about bitcoin, but unless you can provide some better evidence we're going to remain pretty unconvinced in general. Worst case scenario, you help make another Dorian Nakamoto out of Bowery, which as I understand, was pretty bad for Dorian.

And the people who exchanged private messages with him. Did any of them ever decide to reveal these messages? Several emails and conversations have been published, and many of those help us to better understand why certain functions or decisions regarding Bitcoin.

Maybe some of the people who exchanged messages with Satoshi using the forum could post those messages.

I have decided to reveal:

I am willing to take polygraphs that James Bowery sent me these ten bitcoins on January 12th, 2009.  It is the sole Bitcoin send he ever made to me.  Please note Satoshi's send address from Block 9:
https://www.blockchain.com/btc/address/1DUDsfc23Dv9sPMEk5RsrtfzCw5ofi5sVW#

It wasn't me, Craig.  Briefly, if I were Satoshi, I would cash out some of my BTC to save Jan's life by getting RG6042 synthesized and treating her in an appropriate jurisdiction.  Although not decisive, there is the fact that two years after Bitcoin was released I asked a naive question here at bitcointalk.org.

Screenshot of Nick Szabo following James Bowery on twitter:
https://i.postimg.cc/kGZMPV1z/nick-szabo-following-james-bowery.jpg

Nick follows thousands of people on twitter and I'm on that long list simply because back in 1990 or so he was a prominent supporter of my efforts to privatize orbital launch services.  

 I am rarely in contact with him as he's now "out of my league", so to speak.  It's similar to my relationship to a number of other prominent people:

As your following links to Majority Rights demonstrate, I am a social pariah due to my views and anyone prominent can only be associated with me in a plausibly deniable manner, at most.  I can assure you that I am still impoverished and struggling.

That's considered.  I appreciate.  

Let's say one doubts the address (pretty much widely accepted as Satoshi's own) which sent it to me.  In other words, lets say I did in fact receive it (I did) on or about that time.  Well, I suppose it couldn't be on that date, as, given my limited understanding of the total sequential history-- just that Satoshi was mining and shooting it to various wallets...well, let's say, for the sake of argument, it was a month later, i.e. February 12th, 2009...and my memory were right about a relatively early send to myself, but just wrong about Satoshi's wallet (the same one which sent to Hal Finney on January 12th).  

So, for one thing, under that scenario, is my wallet with 10 BTC's still around?  I am asking-- can someone check when the first wallet other than the "DUD...VW" wallet I claim is still lying around with 10 unspent to this day, December 13th, 2018?  You guys can read and parse these transaction faster than I.  So I feel as if that is a fair request.

Secondly, has anyone other than myself heretofore ever publicly and vociferously claimed the "DUD...VW" wallet as being his own?  That doesn't ipso facto prove anything, but you get my point.

I do understand the public spotlight.  Been on Drudge, WaPo, Rachel Maddow, The Economist (at least, my website), the front page of the NYT, etc.  It can be unpleasant, as is poverty.  As is jail.  Living in a hole in the ground might be worse.

Faketoshi is a problem.  It's hard for a man to understand how one can be that bright, with two PhD's and that bereft of character.

I do feel as if, for true curious investigators, I have made a more than reasonable circumstantial case.  Except I personally know it is all 100% true.

James, will you tell me my actual and true address on the blockchain to which you sent me the ten Bitcoins?  Just so I and all know?

We were talking voice on Skype when it was sent by you.  I was ecstatic when it worked.

Naturally, the blockchain has the record.

Thank You a lot for replying.

Satoshi seems to have felt Szabo was out of his league too, as he didn't list Szabo's considerable peer-to-peer work in the Bitcoin paper bibliography, though he assiduously did many others' works.

Nick did make his well-chronicled public plea for a coder to "code it up" though, albeit without the ledger aspect, or at least the efficaciousness-making doublespend prevention provisions, if I understand it rightly.

====================

Szabo's ONLY reference to Bitcoin in all of 2009 is this post: https://unenumerated.blogspot.com/2009/05/liar-resistant-government.html which contains the underwhelming declaration "Satoshi Nakamoto has implemented BitCoin which very similarly uses a dense Byzantine fault tolerant peer-to-peer network and and cryptographic hash chains to ensure the integrity of a currency."

The gentleman doth protest too little, me thinks. Smiley

Nick says nothing in his blog about Bitcoin in 2010. How is that even possible when 2010 is the year when Bitcoin broke the one cent barrier and climbed over 20 cents per Bitcoin.

Nick's first real discussion of Bitcoin is later in 2011: https://unenumerated.blogspot.com/2011/05/bitcoin-what-took-ye-so-long.html

Different subject, but Walter Isaacson, in his bio of Jobs said Jobs mapped his genome and commented something like he'd be either the first person to be saved by the technology or the last person not to be.
========================

Good you are here to help.  Till now, though a prolific late 2008/early 2009 early Bitcoin adapter with vast C++ skills, you've never even openly posted here as yourself.

That social pariah stuff doesn't work on me, lol, as you know, James.  It might push most other people's buttons-- not mine or yours.  None of these libertarians want to believe Satoshi is a right winger.  Their TVs have taught them much better than that.

I honestly don't recall that Skype exchange.  If it was circa 2009, then it must have been someone else.  I can believe Satoshi, whoever he is, sent you some BTC due to the fact that you had been breaking ground in social media with video and, were it not for the political attacks that sent you on jurisdictional arbitrage searches, could have captured the network effect that subsequently went to YouTube.  You were "on the radar" for anyone seriously interested in disintermediating the powers that be. 

There is also the possibility that your memory is conflating something I was working on back then called "Electrum", which was a kind of electronic currency based on Dan Brumleve's DBarter (distributed barter) software that won him some sort of award at the Hacker's Conference circa 2000.  But that wasn't a blockchain system and ultimately went nowhere.

James, I am grateful, at least between you and I, you thereby (above) fully admitted you are in fact Satoshi Nakamoto.  

There is not a scintilla of doubt in my being that you and I were on Skype on January 12th, 2009, the whole time from start to finish, when I received those ten Bitcoins, and that you instructed me priorly where to download and configure the wallet etc.

You absolutely know this is true, too, James.

As you also full-well know, you schooled me in excruciating detail on blockchain theory-- on precisely what it was and how it worked.
Now you yourself say Electrum was not blockchain.  So we weren't talking about Electrum.

Further, I find Electrum wallet mentions.  There may be some other minor things about the net, I don't know.

Electrum is broad obfuscation, just as 70%+ of considerers are instantly "TKO knocked out" by a whiff of "hate".

The barter references broadly allude to, or tacitly cross-cite, some aspects of Thomaz Winnicki's project.  I introduced you to Canadian-Pole Tomasz Winnicki.  You worked on his software.  I see he has a BTC address on his twitter.

You often used the phrase "plausible deniability" as to wallet ownership.  It extends to coding authorship I think. I get that.  

I appreciate there is almost certainly nowhere else on the blockchain in 2009 wherein 10 coins were transmitted and yet remain unspent, as "mine" lie there, as so much space junk.

I know this is a rock and a hard place for you.  I hope you didn't deep six or file 13 the million Bitcoins for your own eccentric, "rationally paranoid" or individualistic reasons.  A least, I hope you have sufficient funds to be comfortable and even locally-mobile in evading researchers or pests.  

A man of your means has surely had the RG6042 synthesized.  Good on you.

As you know, and I have said here, we had Skype voice and telephone conversation in the fall of 2012 about BTC hitting roughly $10 and $13 dollar levels.  How the concept was now proven and a great success.

So, what's going on here? No proof of anything, I assume?

Something gives me the distinct feeling that jabowery and doublespend timestamp are the same person, engaging in a dialogue to affect perception.

I do feel as if, for true curious investigators, I have made a more than reasonable circumstantial case.  Except I personally know it is all 100% true.

Can you sum it up for us? I seem to have missed the convincing part. Smiley

I have a ledger and do sign or click transmissions for GAS/NEO and Nep5's.  Not the greatest expert on here, but I surely can't sign, right?, as Pavel has/at least "had" my Sony VAIO tower.  I don't have the full wallet address.  I remember my address-- even the "sfc" part, as I lived in SF in 1976 in the Da Free John cult and hung out with Elizabeth Holmes-- met her paramour whom she was the muse for.  So as I stared at it 12 years ago, figuring how to memorize it, I also saw the "sfc" center-body part as "San Francisco City" though that seemed weak.  The first and last caps were not hard to remember.  

Some of the mods and senior staff here seem to have generally advanced skills in elements of that.  If I can acquire the wallet key, I have ideas for both my 12 word code and my pass.  Especially the 12 words, as it is the first 12 words of a book.

Oh, ibminer, you addressed that to James.  Don't know enough about it to know if he can sign or confirm my receipt with some time or confirmation ping or if you suggesting we are the same person, which we are not.  I believe that is James.  Stylistically, it's him.  Just as he has used the expression "in a nutshell" with me on voice.  It happens he resides about a 100 or 120 miles from where I grew up.  That expression is/was common in our gen in that thoroughly midwestern part of the country.  The expression has fallen into disuse.

I personally like and understand a quite a bit better "Satoshi Unplugged", his post of March 3rd, 2014.  Hope you will too.  Come on, James.  Trump is president and this country needs heavy-duty inspiring blockchain tutelage Daily Mail level scientific scoop before NEO, ELASTOS, and AI vaporware-- whatever it all is, finally stomps us.  I have never even heard Trump mention the word blockchain.  A little inspiration, pls., as when you testified before Congress on the dire need for stepped up scientific education

ANNIE-ROSE STRASSER et al could get rid of white privilege at the drop of a hat if they really wanted to: Just find some stinking desert (to use a Firesign Theaterism) somewhere and set up a reservation for these privileged whites who don't think they're privileged at all -- who would rather go to a stinking desert with _nothing_* and risk dying of starvation and thirst than spend another microsecond in the society where they are privileged. You'd get rid of millions if not tens of millions of these privileged white males virtually over night. Problem solved.

*You would, of course, have DHS X-Ray them to make sure they hadn't swallowed any diamonds before they crossed into the stinking desert never to return to the land of white privilege.

Oh, ibminer, you addressed that to James.
It was addressed to you.

Secondly, has anyone other than myself heretofore ever publicly and vociferously claimed the "DUD...VW" wallet as being his own?  That doesn't ipso facto prove anything, but you get my point.
You (doublespend timestamp) are claiming to be the owner of the 1DUDsfc23Dv9sPMEk5RsrtfzCw5ofi5sVW

You were asked to sign a message and stated:

Being, now, aware that users of Bitcoin Core (v0.12.1.0-g9779e1e) are no longer to use a torrent download of a bootstrap.dat and, instead, are admonished to simply launch Bitcoin Core and permit "Synchronizing with network...", I nevertheless have a situation that may require a more nuanced decision:

I'm recovering from a backup and it says "50 weeks behind..."

Which implies to me that you were attempting to load your wallet and sign a message and were stuck waiting... but synchronization is not related to signing messages. Signing could theoretically be done offline.

If I can acquire the wallet key, I have ideas for both my 12 word code and my pass.  Especially the 12 words, as it is the first 12 words of a book.
... I thought only newer wallets have a 12 word seed phrase?...... I'm being trolled, aren't I? :/

ibminer, the 50 weeks thing is James being quoted, not me.  I guess he is not likely to sign any known Satoshi wallet.  Maybe he'll hold forth around here a lot more on technical issues, and that's something.  Seems the libertarian thing is, he is not telling any wallet address of his to anybody, why should/would he?

No. Excepting the Electrum obfuscation nonsense.

I am consternated about proving my 1DUD...VW address.  As I said, I fully recognize the crossed-hammers mining glyph and James was startled when I hit the mining button "start mining" or something like that, and it simply didn't work in that moment on the Sony VAIO.

If the word code thing was more recently introduced, I am either not remembering that correctly or maybe the early version presented to me had it, but it was then dropped for a while.  I understand I will likely never get any of it back, even from Pavel.

It's not very much the $33 or $35K.  That's pretty close to zilch in terms of what I could have made mining.  

There is the solving; there is the historical import.  

I was thinking this org, this board, has access to the earliest email signups.  If they do, they could at least confirm or deny.  I'd appreciate that.

I do wish to emphasize and truly assert, contrary to what James has seemingly suggested, that we have had, in 2008/2009-- (ref. Satoshi's Oct. 31st, 2008 theoretical release prior to Jan. 3rd, 2009 software release) including 2012, and 2014, multiple conversations specifically about Bitcoin.  I remember his citing the mysterious Satoshi and even teaching me the
value of a Satoshi.  Remember, I lived in Hawaii just under 25 years and have extreme familiarity with Japanese names, pronunciations, culture-- both Tokyo and HI Japanese-American cultures.  Those things stick in my mind with ease.

My personal belief is that the coincidence of the scientist Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto living two blocks from Hal Finney, or whatever distance it was-- the discovery via Spokeo type researches or something similar led to the name being selected.

Additionally, in a post the mods chose to delete a few days ago, I  cited talking at long length multiple times with James about a high-stakes game called "Tanomoshi" which I learned about from Japanese-Americans and Korean bar girls financing HI real-estate deals via.  I knew many people playing the Tanomoshi.  James liked the horizontal aspects of that and we envisioned many permissions/rule for participants in a digital version, as well as discussing his coding it. Please google "Tanomoshi", the historical Samurai link.

I think that Satoshi is a great person and what matters is not his information and details but his creation - btc itself. we will use it for years. He has given us a chance to change the system of currency

Will you be signing a message from the 1DUD address? 
I don't believe this would require you to wait for any synchronization.


If you can't sign a message for whatever reason you can always send an amount of bitcoins representative of today's date (in European format) to this address:

1864jXLSdbZq319oQScCNG1m7nLYbGHuBX

That would be 0.14122018 BTC... and would suffice as evidence equally as well.

(Lol, I'm a stinker ain't I).

...
James, will you tell me my actual and true address on the blockchain to which you sent me the ten Bitcoins?  Just so I and all know?

We were talking voice on Skype when it was sent by you.  I was ecstatic when it worked.
...

I honestly don't recall that Skype exchange.  If it was circa 2009, then it must have been someone else.  I can believe Satoshi, whoever he is, sent you some BTC due to the fact that you had been breaking ground in social media with video and, were it not for the political attacks that sent you on jurisdictional arbitrage searches, could have captured the network effect that subsequently went to YouTube.  You were "on the radar" for anyone seriously interested in disintermediating the powers that be.  

There is also the possibility that your memory is conflating something I was working on back then called "Electrum", which was a kind of electronic currency based on Dan Brumleve's DBarter (distributed barter) software that won him some sort of award at the Hacker's Conference circa 2000.  But that wasn't a blockchain system and ultimately went nowhere.

James, I am grateful, at least between you and I, you thereby (above) fully admitted you are in fact Satoshi Nakamoto.  

There is not a scintilla of doubt in my being that you and I were on Skype on January 12th, 2009, the whole time from start to finish, when I received those ten Bitcoins, and that you instructed me priorly where to download and configure the wallet etc.

You absolutely know this is true, too, James.

As you also full-well know, you schooled me in excruciating detail on blockchain theory-- on precisely what it was and how it worked.
Now you yourself say Electrum was not blockchain.  So we weren't talking about Electrum.

Further, I find Electrum wallet mentions.  There may be some other minor things about the net, I don't know.

=================================

Electrum is broad obfuscation, just as 70%+ of considerers are instantly "TKO knocked out" by a whiff of "hate".

The barter references broadly allude to, or tacitly cross-cite, some aspects of Thomaz Winnicki's project.  I introduced you to Canadian-Pole Tomasz Winnicki.  You worked on his software.  I see he has a BTC address on his twitter.

Then release that monetary/barter exchange system you were working on before. Even the way it worked back then was highly useful, I think.

You often used the phrase "plausible deniability" as to wallet ownership.  It extends to coding authorship I think. I get that.  

I appreciate there is almost certainly nowhere else on the blockchain in 2009 wherein 10 coins were transmitted and yet remain unspent, as "mine" lie there, as so much space junk.

I know this is a rock and a hard place for you.  I hope you didn't deep six or file 13 the million Bitcoins for your own eccentric, "rationally paranoid" or individualistic reasons.  A least, I hope you have sufficient funds to be comfortable and even locally-mobile in evading researchers or pests.  

A man of your means has surely had the RG6042 synthesized.  Good on you.

As you know, and I have said here, we had Skype voice and telephone conversation in the fall of 2012 about BTC hitting roughly $10 and $13 dollar levels.  How the concept was now proven and a great success.

less then an hour time spent to prepare such an elaborate reponse. lol.

I too think that these jabowery and doublespend accounts are controlled by same person(s)...
