I think it is a fake news because owner should conceal himself for there will be a possibilities that he will be block-mailed especially if everyone knows how rich he might be this time because of bitcoin. However, if he can explain and made a publicity regarding with his creation then we can say that he is truly the founder of bitcoin.

Holy cow, this story just gets weirder and weirder. You can't make this stuff up:

Well DT let us know if you get that wallet up and running, you might need some of that BTC for yet another DNA test.

blah blah blah

all i see is doublespend talk about a possible social life of estonia, san fransisco and canada.
and then using the jabowery account where he talks to himself(doublespend) by promoting how double spend is on some radar and popular and important and may have been satoshis second recipient.

yawn

seems double spend aka jabowery is trying to play a fame game. talking about all the fame and social life stuff
but providing no bitcoin proof

we dont care about possible social life drama of incarcerations, deportations and alcohol fuelled parties in san fran..
or pretend unprovable skype calls to yourself at unprovable dates.

you can scream "i know who he is, hes my friend" for years. proves nothing. your just trying to play the fame game. self promoting yourself as 2 characters hoping atleast one of the characters gets famous

I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.
Please do your own research & respect what is written here as both opinion & information gleaned from experience. many people replying with insults but no on-topic content substance, automatically are 'facepalmed' and yawned at

ibminer, the 50 weeks thing is James being quoted, not me.  I guess he is not likely to sign any known Satoshi wallet.  
Ok, so if the 50 weeks thing is supposed to be James (whom, in your mind, is Satoshi)...

You are telling me Satoshi is asking a question in 2016 relating to the speed of downloading the blockchain and whether or not to use a bootstrap torrent?? In 2016, he is facing a decision on what to do about being "50 weeks behind", and he needs help deciding what to do?? Roll Eyes

Satoshi in 2010:
It's not the download so much as verifying all the signatures in all the blocks as it downloads that takes a long time.

How long is the initial block download typically taking?  Does it slow down half way through or is about the same speed the whole way?

I've thought about ways to do a more cursory check of most of the chain up to the last few thousand blocks.  It is possible, but it's a lot of work, and there are a lot of other higher priority things to work on.

Simplified Payment Verification is for lightweight client-only users who only do transactions and don't generate and don't participate in the node network.  They wouldn't need to download blocks, just the hash chain, which is currently about 2MB and very quick to verify (less than a second to verify the whole chain).  If the network becomes very large, like over 100,000 nodes, this is what we'll use to allow common users to do transactions without being full blown nodes.  At that stage, most users should start running client-only software and only the specialist server farms keep running full network nodes, kind of like how the usenet network has consolidated.
--snip--

Satoshi would have already known the answer to the question and what options he had... and, really, I can't see Satoshi misspelling bootstrap twice.
Quote
2. By the time I discovered boostrap.dat was no longer faster I had already torrent downloaded most of boostrat.dat.


I guess he is not likely to sign any known Satoshi wallet.  
That's a safe bet.

...
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 will answer, though I expect you have said your piece on all this.

I do now recall Electrum.  In our first two partial years of conversations, roughly a month or two before Oct. 31st, 2008 (Satoshi's theoretical release) and Jan. 3rd, 2009 (Satoshi's Bit Core release), the entire blockchain theory was patiently verbally explained to me in great detail.  I think you are right-- it was yours...then called "Electrum" (I believe we discussed Szabo's BitGold too, as you
were a great gold bug-- likely many posts on Majority Rights and you at least read GoldIsMoney board, i believe it was).  In any case, Bitgold references or no, Electrum was your baby.  And it sounded precisely as Bitcoin.  Then, of a sudden, like 3 card Monte on 42nd, or a fuzzball under three cups, you announced that this guy Satoshi was working the same direction as you and he beat you to the punch (not your words, mine).  I emotionally recall being pretty crestfallen.  "Are you sure?  His system is better?"  

"Yes", you assured me, inscrutable Satoshi Nakamoto had perfected it, but it didn't matter, because you two had had the basic same idea, it's just that he had gotten a little further along faster--like Edison, to your Tesla, as it were,  as I saw it, being a fan of yours. Your tude was, if not "let the better man win", closer to "it doesn't matter, the important thing is that the data process gets out there and works worldwide as a horizontal leveler." No matter.  We were off to the races with Satoshi.  Thank You for jogging my old memory.

Then in 2011, and Electrum wallet was created.  OK fine.  Except it did have the 12 word pass phrase, or however many numbers in the phrase there were.  Electrum a common name, sure, admixture of silver and gold-- many beautiful Russian nuggets online.
Point is, I believe you had mentioned that a pass phrase could-- would eventually be built in and also that the block sizes could be expanded from 4mb or so to a full gig!  Maybe that's how I had begun early to think of phrases.

I should mention here that I never bought, owned or was gifted any other crypto, including any BTC (than "1DUD...VW"), or again trained myself to move it until April of 2018-- over ten years later.  As I have truthfully said, you and I had voice conversations on BTC, politics, Leith etc. in 2012 and 2014-- particularly lengthy in 2012.  

Readers should know that I came upon the blockchain record transaction of January 12th, 2009 over two weeks after I began posting here, and after I had truly asserted here that you sent me a gift of ten Bitcoins way back when.  And there it was, jutting out at me unspent (natch, I knew it was lost forever) ... my distinctive wallet address "1DUD...VW" (the people's, "volks" car of Hitler!)  James, did you do that as more fun gamery?  VW, really?  What are the odds?

So to avoid the timeout in posts, I will come back, edit this and include more as I write.  brb

OK, here I'd like to ask people to tweet to Martti Malmi.  I imagine he would protect Satoshi-- even if he does or does not know Satoshi's identity.  Why wouldn't he?  Martti is almost a hermit by proclivity; probably a well-to-do man as well.  As with James,
who would not fawn guilelessness with perhaps a hundred million plus (Martti's wealth?) or Satoshi's $6 bil?  Then there is The Lord of the Rings power...more on that next as well as Jame's post about a half year before "watching" before the Mt. Gox hack.  You can pre-read it here in his own words.  For a guy "not in Szabo's class", he surely is skilled in watching the baby.  And why does a poor
man need Armory off Ubuntu, for SegWit and hundreds of wallets' cold storage?  For sheer fun of academic play?  brb

James has picked up about 6 twitter followers, from 88 to 94.  Some are correct to believe me or judge it warrants worthiness of exploration.  ...If only for source of possible fluctuations in bitcoin price.

Re James' saying Szabo follows thousands of twitter accounts-- the number is about 2,000.  Forgot to look when Szabo joined.  I was in Tallinn when it came out.  2008 wasn't it, or late 2007?  I think 08.  Got banned within a few days for linking to my site's vids; my partner Agis lasted a few months by only linking every 7th or so tweet to our vids. Then banned again under another account at end of 2016 election for purple county buying (almost exclusively to men) "I've changed my mind!  I'm voting for Trump!" So anyway, it's indeed plausible Szabo and James don't know one another.  Just another exculpatory pre-engineered ruse.

As we all know, peer-to-peer and torrent downloads (as well as TOR) were huge news in 2008-- on everyone's minds-- even though Napster was old news and an earlier rendition.  emule was big in Europe.  "Peer-to-peer" was the phrase James most frequently used, though "timestamp", "blockchain" and "double-spend" were in there super-frequently.  I distinctly recall reading the Oct. 31 doc and seeing and generally understanding the concept with schematics.
=======================

jabowery    Economy / Exchanges / MtGox BTC Price Excursion Starting 2013-06-21T07:05:49 UTC?   on: June 22, 2013, 05:35:37 AM
I've got a program monitoring MtGox and it picked up a price excursion that was way out of the ordinary from 2013-06-21T07:01:32 until 2013-06-21T07:06:04 UTC.  I mean like an order of magnitude excursion.

I have to presume I have a bug in my program but if so it is so intermittent that it happens only once in a few weeks because that's how long I've been monitoring the streaming data out of MtGox and nothing like this has happened before.

PS:  I sure wish they'd include basic stuff like checksums and sequence numbers on their streaming interface.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=240360.msg2547093#msg2547093

In posting this, I want to emphasize, I am not in any way suggesting James had anything whatsoever to do with the Mt. Gox hack heist-- rather, I think he was keeping an eye on his baby, bitcoin, and the interests of millions of BTC holders.  How many tech guys were monitoring Mt. Gox in June of 2013?  Some.  Probably.  Why? They had a stake in security?

The Mt. Gox hack
On 7 February 2014, Mt. Gox stopped all bitcoin withdrawals...

No my "Electrum" had nothing to do with the "Electrum" Bitcoin wallet that came later.  "Electrum" is simply a name that elicits electronic money, in whatever form, as well as having a history in precious metal currency -- which is why the name got reused independently.

PS:  For others who are interested in why I say Craig was in a position to capture the network effect that became YouTube, and may have caught the attention of anarcho-capitalists into jurisdictional arbitrage (such as Satoshi), in 2005 he inherited enough money to pay programmers to set up a video sharing site that included live video and channels for individuals -- and he most decidedly did not politically censor the content.  YouTube got started around the same time and I don't recall what features YouTube offered at around the same time, but I don't think it included live streaming for individual channels and I suspect it was politically censoring content even at that early stage.

Morning, James.  More by and by.  I'd been about to lay in this when you posted:

Then there is this part of Satoshi's known address:
 "HoMeFtp" ... to me, as "Home [of bitcoin core] file transfer protocol".

Will try and respond to more of what you've posted.  It is nice you explain to the men why Satoshi appreciated what I was doing.  Was just a 1950 TV's gen guy.  Of course, as I've said already, Satoshi himself told me, in part, he wanted to see if a guy like me--
a little bright, but not super-extraordinary, could grok and work with it all.  You said that in polite terms.  Also, that I had.  A little slow to "come to" after the knockout, ha.  Jails, the hole in the ground, walking over the Columbia range of the Rockies into Montana to escape Canada, and mostly the driving need to video them as they did us, it all took a toll.  Till I got to thinking, around Christmas of last year. of $19,000 BTC, staring at the walls in Mustamae and at my wallet address, and imagining convincing my two brothers to mine and be patient and let's see what happens.

If you don't mind, it seems to me you could explain the events at Hewlett-Packard best-- when they fired you because you flat out refused to fire the 400 programmers who worked under you and hire HIB East Indian programmers.  (Been to Bangalore its burb Whitefield; saw old Savitri Devi there in April of 1973 from about 30 feet away at Satya Sai Baba's, the pedophile's ashram.  I'd read her for a couple of years then, but was too shy to walk up to her).  

   Anyway, point is, it influenced you a lot, as you yourself have said.  Then jim.com was online in Feb. 1995.  The Congressional testimony you read, your You Tube vid you linked to the other day-- wasn't that a year or so before the end at HP?  I am really glad you have evened the score many times over with corrupt, evil Silicon Valley and the banksters.  Can't remember if we talked about Iceland taking action.  I think we may have.  Exciting times.  Now Trump.  Now bitcoin.  Alt coins. It has all changed.

EDIT:  I used my inherited money to get the 5 year financial visa with Eesti lawyers' help, and emigrate to Estonia, James.  The tech who set up the live-streaming in 2008 is known to Agis and myself.  He is skilled.  He did it as a volunteer effort.  We gave Tom Metzger the keys and Tom would come on anytime he liked.  I talked twice a day.  No, You Tube didn't have live streaming then.  UStream, I think it was, had relatively shortly before us begun it.  Censored, of course.

I also like NMC, name coin, the very first fork of bitcoin.  I think it was 2011 when it was coded to allow .bit website DNS to obviate censorship.  That coin is even today 48 to 50 cents, avail. on that Thai exchange.  When the insane Pol Potters get back in power, it should surge.  Thx for that too, sir.  Can't recall if you foretold that to me as you did so many things, such as the vast exchanges, the numerous coins, $1,000, $10K or $1 million BTC, and blockchain carrying whole complex contracts data sets which would perform even more complex functions than bitcoin.

No, that's incorrect, sarcheer.  The people who thought this in the thread are wrong.  I am CC; he is JAB.  Linder used to say something like almost no one can change his writing style and large numbers of people can't even recognize simple characteristics of writing styles.  It's actually embarrassing to me you suggest I can write or think remotely like James.  

Different subject:  Remember when Gavin Andresen (I've read his real surname is "Bell" but don't know) told Satoshi he was going to give a speech to the CIA?  That was the last he ever heard from Satoshi.

Until you sign a message from an address belonging to Satoshi, you are just pissing in the wind and not even as well as Craig Wright.

I see.  Yes, I more or less understand that, and I'm clearly not as intelligent or lettered at Faketoshi.  If you've seen how I think, I am not too afraid of telling truth or even going to jail or living under extreme duress in cold.

But I do know what happened over months, who sent me the ten bitcoin, and when.  It's important to me to tell it accurately.

I am pretty sure you are not suggesting JAB was working under Craig Wright or at his direct behest in James' sending me the ten bitcoin that incredibly early when he did.

Yes, yes, I know re the Electrum wallet.  Didn't put this in earlier:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amir_Taaki

Thx for your chronology with Nick Szabos.

I want to tell readers I know your voice well-- I wasn't ever talking on Skype from Mustamae, Tallinn, Estonia with Nick Szabos, Faketoshi Craig Wright or anyone else but you.

Different subject, but I have read a couple of things lately I wonder about.  One is that all the Chinese dropping mining because they can't make money at $3,400 will cause the ledger to falter.  Don't know enough about that; some here other than you surely do.

Secondly, some say if Satoshi were to proffer a great portion of his BTC, the market would plunge.  Others say the market would just scoop up all of it in a flash.

Then there is BTCSV, I guess maybe now BTHSV.  Don't know if you'll venture an opinion on that, but I am asking.

Lastly, your mention of your naïvety re CAP when you first posted here at bitcointalk.org.  Then read this about CAP from Mr. Kernfeld:

Interesting, and rather frustrating, that just as the perfect energy source is looming on the horizon, the perfect energy sink is growing exponentially, that’s bitcoin. Leave it to people to invent a completely useless ‘crypto currency’ mining process that wastes massive amounts of real energy. Imagine a future filled with SunCell powered server farm bitcoin mining operations. Nightmare. Perhaps Dr. Mills can do us a favor and refuse to lease SunCells for bitcoin mining. Please!

I was not really serious about banning bitcoin mining. Of course you should sell power to anyone who wants to buy it. But the SunCell would really open up the whole solar system to exploration and colonization especially the outer solar system since solar energy is too weak there yet hydrogen is abundant.

no matter how much you yammer on about your social life from the 1950's->2008 .. its all meaningless

stop with the social dramatics of trying to get famous.

I think that it is better to be interested not in Satoshi but in btc because he has already done what he could for us by producing the idea of btc and now we use it to become rich

As James himself says, Nick Szabos is out of his league.

Review of "The Supermen: The Story of Seymour Cray and the Technical Wizards behind the Supercomputer"
jabowery (26) in history •  10 months ago

PLATO was a $1 billion (1970s) 'bet the company' investment by Bill Norris, the farmer/CEO of CDC who put a windmill pump from his Nebraska farm in front of CDC's corporate towers to remind people where they came from. That is the story of epic proportions only grazed on by this book. PLATO was ready to go to mass market, but Wall Street combined with classic middle mismanagement killed the mass market version of PLATO before it could even be test marketed -- for which it was ready.

 ... I personally worked with the PLATO project and tested a version of it ...

 ... There are a lot of anecdotes this book doesn't tell that will probably die with the people who lived the tale. Just one, to capture a bit of what will be lost to history:

People looking for Cray Research's facility in the fields of Wisconsin could drive up to a farm house and ask where 'Cray Research' was located and a friendly neighbor would say, 'Oh, you mean Seymour's place...' and then give directions to an area surrounded by an almost invisible network of intelligence agency surveillance equipment -- protecting what was seen as a national treasure from potential espionage. In a speech to one of these agencies, Seymour told them they could come out and protect his folks but only if they never got in the way, and that meant not even letting anyone know they were around. Well, you could tell they were around, but at least they didn't get in the way!

you are not proving anything
you are yammering on about your personal life trying to make yourself famous by mentioning random events like being in a PLATO project and giving directions to crays

stop trying to make yourself famous by pretending to have got 10btc..
if you cant prove you got 10btc. then stop yammering on about your social life

your social life of the 1970's onwards is no proof
all your doing by highlighting your social life is trying to beat ur chest like a gorilla as if your significant

Tough to accept a self-proclaimed social pariah rightist really made bitcoin, Trump is president, Hungary kicked out Soros' Open Society, France's sweetheart is getting belly-butted around by generals as the country burns, and Italy has a right-led coalition?

all i see is doublespend talk about a possible social life of estonia, san fransisco and canada.
and then using the jabowery account where he talks to himself(doublespend) by promoting how double spend is on some radar and popular and important and may have been satoshis second recipient.

yawn

seems double spend aka jabowery is trying to play a fame game. talking about all the fame and social life stuff
but providing no bitcoin proof

It's been a great honor and fun to get Satoshi back posting on his very own Stormfront-clone, personally-built vbulletin board during this historic turbulent market growing-pains period.

i in #8 also said i predict you would then use a social media account in the name of james.. and it happened. the james account is trying to promote doublespend account and the double spend account is trying to highlight james. account.but neither is proving who received 10btc
your just social drama about a personal life from 1970+
trying to gleam some fame.

now what if i said that the 1dud address was mine. and i asked you to prove its not..
go on try..
if you dont have the private key, the funds are not yours.
thats like rule one of bitcoin.

the reason i believe you are james and james is you is that both accounts lack detailed knowledge of bitcoin. and if both of you were highly involved and doings stuff and part of the inner circle of 2008-2009 that were there to receive bitcoin in the first week. then you would know much more then the basics of bitcoin.

all your 2 accounts are doing is telling each other how YOU have been involved is X or Y projects or know people.
kinda worse than craig wright failed attempts.

Satoshi Nakamoto's last post on bitcointalk.org, Dec. 11, 2010, re Wikileaks' hornet's nest was also the general time frame James suffered a family tragedy.  Bitcoin was worth very little at the time.

First I want to say that I have clarified my own thinking here, in real time, about “the problem” and it has to do with the monopoly aspect of controlling the currency standard,
https://majorityrights.com/weblog/comments/best_defense_of_the_federal_reserve_not_out_of_thin_air
=============================

Long story short:  If the Knight-Ridder management hadn’t been so anal about retaining a strangle hold on editorial control of content, they could have been the launching point for the internet 15 years earlier and they might have been able to develop new business models—such as those I outlined in the 1982 essay I wrote when I was in charge of their network architecture. I rather predicted their unenlightened self-interest in the essay and the eventual emergence of “pioneer” stock like “Bezos”.

https://majorityrights.com/weblog/comments/cyprus_not_quite_a_citizens_dividend

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

During this period, I was viciously attacked by people who weren't all that careful to hide their identities. These messages, typified by "Die Bowery DIE!" are no longer in the Usenet archives that Google has apparent sole control over.

I was also audited by the IRS and my bank account frozen when, after learning how the Swamp works (which one must do to pass any law at the Federal level) I started questioning the ratification of the 16th Amendment, among other heretical questions.

It would be interesting if anyone could find the "Die Bowery DIE!" message in Google's Usenet "search engine" -- a uniquely incapable search engine among all search engines including not only Google's own search engine, but Alta Vista. He who controls the past...

What are trading APIs missing that you want to see on our platform(Crypto Street)?
The development team at Crypto Street is within a few weeks of finishing our API. Prior to launch I'd like to know what some of you feel other platform APIs are lacking. Whether you plan to use it as a trader or maybe even as a platform for your own business, we want to make that easier.

For the non-trading API, don't bother with anything but websocket streaming. Its really annoying to have exchanges get pissy about high rates of polling their data when those sorts of interfaces don't provide timely data anyway. Sheesh. Also, if you do the right thing and provide streaming realtime data, please provide a sequence number with the events.

Also, when are the exchanges going to come up with a two-phase commit trading standard so if one exchange fails the atomic action doesn't happen?

Are the Confabulation Theories of Thaler and Hecht-Nielsen Isomorphic?

Both S. L. Thaler and R. Hecht-Nielsen have set forth neural-based theories of "confabulation" applicable to machine learning.

The essential mathematics of Hecht-Nielsen is set forth in his paper "Cogent Confabulation". Briefly it is an inversion of Bayesian inference. Bayesian inference is P(x|a&b&c&d...) where one is estimating the probability of x assuming a, b, c, d, etc. Its inversion is P(a&b&c&d...|x), which RHN calls the "cogency" of x given the assumptions.

I haven't seen a similarly succinct description of Thaler's mathematics that would permit comparison to see if the theories are isomorphic. Are they?

Even a cursory review of the strategies of various parasites reveals that a common strategy is to neuter the host and redirect reproductive resources to the parasite.  These are the activities that are of least value to most parasites.
