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.

of course there were other developers who created a platform for Satoshi to create Bitcoin, Hal Finney and Nick Szabo, obviously they contributed to Bitcoin as well as being involved in developing a digital currency on the lead up to Bitcoin.

Agreed. While not code, would add bitboy. The logo was a fundamental marketing masterpiece for Bitcoin adoption.

This logo went into unicode in 2017, quite the achievement! I don't think any altcoin managed to push theirs there.

Speaking of which, if you still cannot see it, you have to update your unicode fonts (Try Google's NOTO): ₿

im breaking the rules.im just mentioning one name. and not explaining why. because the name itself should make it obvious of their involvement

Hal Finney was one of the first ever people to show genuine interest in Satoshi Nakamoto’s peer-to-peer cash proposal, noting that “When Satoshi announced Bitcoin on the cryptography mailing list, he got a skeptical reception at best.

I have heard his name several times, but I just understood that he is very meritorious in the world of Bitcoin. He was truly the first unsung hero to believe in Satoshi's technology. What is clear is that this man is extraordinary in the eyes of many crypto people.

Being an early investor is an opportunity. Those living in this situation may have become very rich now. But there is more. Bitcoin price was evaluated 1000 times. When it increases 10 times, it wants a great foresight not to sell.

Napoleon - he invented central bank to finance the Napoleonic wars. Without central banks, there wouldn't be fiat currencies, and without fiat currencies, there wouldn't be Bitcoin.

Many time after investing with bitcoin price increase down more than 10% from bitcoin price usually, never use your world for new investor with bitcoin and altcoin could increase their investing faster because we not prediction when bitcoin have higher and cheap price, but just said the real situation with bitcoin price where been in higher and lower price.

We are finding some great people reading these messages. Thanks to everyone for their contributions thus far!

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.

Exactly! Who specifically are you referring too?

+1 with Hal Finney.

https://twitter.com/halfin/status/1110302988



The very first tweet about Bitcoin.

I also chose finney because he was one of the first people to show genuine interest in Satoshi Nakamoto's cash proposal, and Finney is also very likely to be the first person besides Satoshi to run bitcoin if we look at the contents of his Twitter tweets.

I think maybe Satoshi Nakamoto is not the name of one person, but that is the nickname of their group consisting of only a few people, such as Finney and Nick Szobo, and they might deliberately hide this so that not everyone knows about their identity to make digital currencies namely Bitcoin.

Napoleon - he invented central bank to finance the Napoleonic wars.
That's highly oversimplified, to the extent where it gets misleading.
Fiat money, like many innovative concepts, has no single, definitive inventor and/or starting point.
There's a continuum of innovation from IOUs over paper money to modern fiat.
Wikipedia lists ca. 10th to 11th century china's paper money as a starting point, but even that's a little arbitrary, of course.

So, with all due respect, Napoleon deserves no merit as an unsung hero of Bitcoin Wink

All free men, wherever they may live, can use Bitcoin, and, therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words "Ich bin ein Bitcoiner!"
