Everyone has heard of Satoshi, most have heard of Gavin Andresen. Jeff Garzik, Pieter Wuille and other early contributors are well known to the core community, but we're looking for other early contributors that have almost been forgotten about. From bug reports, to critical updates to community rallying that got Bitcoin in-front of the right eyes.

We are trying to compile a list of developers and community members that have contributed a lot to Bitcoin so we can integrate them into an upcoming project. In order to help with this we are making this thread to try and uncover some of the more hidden stories in the Bitcoin community, to help give the people behind them their place in history and the recognition they deserve.

No matter how small an action, it may have still had an impact equally as great.  


The rules are simple:

  • Select someone who you feel needs acknowledgement for their early contributions
  • State why they stand out for you
  • The contributions should be dated before 2012

We especially want to know about them if they are developers that are not on our current list, compiled based on github contributions and early bug reports. However this list just goes of commit history, and fails to give credit to those behind the ideas, reports and smaller code contributions.

many people have been instrumental in growing and developing bitcoin so far, but maybe what we know better is Satoshi Nakamoto alone. with this information people will know that there are still many people who have services that are not much different from Satoshi Nakamoto and we must thank them, without them maybe the growth of Bitcoin would not be like it is today

There really must be some grave mistake, because I don't see Theymos or other important admin on the list. Not to be a kiss ass, but this community is the very foundation of Blockchain and Bitcoin. From here many things came into being, so many projects, so many opportunities for earning extra income. In order to be a community there must be a common vision, the ability to agree to disagree. An infrastructure where the commonality that we share is an equal responsibility to share, uplift, and correct the mistakes as we progress further.
  This forum is an awesome community, the core members are very active and their voices are often heard as the infrastructure of the forum is always changing, usually with new policies to help police the chaos that ensues. The merit system is a good example of good policing, collectively agreed upon in order to improve and keep a steady foundation here. When I first started posting here I was ignorant and participated in some of the "Tom foolery" of being a newbie. With help from the community I have learned a whole lot and now try to practice my due diligence with each post so I don't contribute negatively here on the forum.
  I know developers deserve all the praise and glory, but what about the pillars of our very own community? If  the forum were to just vanish one-day out of the blue, how much of an impact do you think it would really have on the Bitcoin scene, especially for those who find employment here (myself included)?

I feel that the many crypto heros here are going unsung  Undecided

This community is the very foundation of Blockchain and Bitcoin. 

Don't worry chaoscoinz, our current list has been created from GitHub contributions only we are starting this thread to find the more hidden aspects of the bitcointalk community - where everything really started  Smiley  Without community support, there would be nothing!

It seems like it was inevitable that Satoshi and Hal would end up on the
same project from his wiki bio for example,

Finney was a noted cryptographic activist.[5] During the early 1990s, in addition to being a regular poster on the cypherpunks listserv, Finney ran two anonymous remailers.[6] Further cryptographic activism included running a (successful) contest to break the export-grade encryption Netscape used.[7]

Everyone has heard of Satoshi, most have heard of Gavin Andresen. Jeff Garzik, Pieter Wuille and other early contributors are well known to the core community, but we're looking for other early contributors that have almost been forgotten about. From bug reports, to critical updates to community rallying that got Bitcoin in-front of the right eyes.

Successful Free and Open Source projects always have a large list of contributors, often "unsung". Such is also the case of Linux, the kernel of an operating system most people use and don't even know (in Android). In the 11th year of Bitcoin, we should be thankful.

I guess it would be objective to see Bitcoin's source contribution, but often small ideas and discussion doesn't make it in line code count (especially when some optimization actually reduces it).

How about the other projects, Do you even know who wrote cgminer? In the Free and Open Source ecosystem, everyone builds on top of the shoulder of others, it is the way it should be, the only way to achieve progress. Proprietary closed software are evolutionary dead ends.

Very good points by everyone. We're actually just trying to find some hidden stories from the very early days of Bitcoin that are personal to members of this community. Ones that people feel deserve more merit, or have been forgotten about due to dead links or deleted profiles. When people are this passionate about a new movement like Bitcoin it's nice to find out thing's that no one else in the community knows, or something no news articles have ever touched on.

Like, who gave Bitcoin's first ever public review on sourceforge?  Mats Henricson - https://twitter.com/matshenricson via sourceforge

Or how about the fact this isn't Facebook's first attempt at a digital currency? They tried in 2009.

Now how do you suppose @OP will integrate Hal Finney into their project, considering the fact that he died more than half a decade ago?

I am glad someone has taken the time to acknowledge some folks who really help in the growth and development of bitcoin. For instance there was this guy who discovered the first bitcoin hack which led to they having a another chain. If not for this guy i believe this huge dream of Satoshi Nakamoto might have never been a reality.

since you are asking about contribution to bitcoin not bitcoin core, i say one of the biggest contributions that is missed here is by Thomas Voegtlin back in 2011 when he started a new project that is helping a huge number of users to this day by making it easy for them to use bitcoin in a secure manner when they can not run a full node. the project name was Electrum.

p.s. you already broke your own rule, a lot of the names in your list weren't even around back in 2012...

This is merely to turn the tables that it is satoshi that mostly created the best cryptocurrency in the world but in fact, he was helped by numerous people that is working for free in order to develop a revolutionary cryptocurrency. I just know before about Gavin, who is considerably the bitcoin scientist until I found the github link of bitcoin. Where I see numerous people still continue to contribute to the development of bitcoin, and how it could possible be implemented in more various platforms and also to make bitcoin faster than ever.

Didn't know there are numerous people behind the bitcoin development.

Anyway, are these people still active in the development or just some? Who are still alive at the moment?
Should be thankful with these unsung heroes 'cause without them bitcoin wouldn't innovate this far. Such a genius.

by using bitcoin we actually have a lot of respect for them, so I think by using bitcoin we are already thankful for the technology they are fighting for even though not many still survive for these people, and some are still anonymous so far.

Bitcoin has many enthusiasts who helped it to become what it is today. They were very devoted to their goal and without that strong community Bitcoin wouldn't achieve success. They are all over the world and are contributing in many different ways so it's very hard to name just a few or to make some list. Also, many of them would stay anonimous.

I wonder if these unsung heroes in bitcoin's era are also given their proper reward for their contribution to the development of bitcoin. Way back before, I highly think that satoshi alone created bitcoin, thinking that blockchain already exists but no, Satoshi together with these people helped the whole world to have a currency that solves most of the problem and inconveniency that fiat currency is providing people for a long time. I believe, they still continue working in relation to how to better increase the efficiency of bitcoin and I hope soon, I could also contribute to its growth.
