Hello guys and girls.

There's one question that I can't get out of my head. A guy starts a huge revolution, and then disappears?  Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? Let's try to find out! Let's help each other out here. Let's solve this once and for all!

I hope that we will find out one day. But I don't think this guy or girl wants to come forward by her/himself.

I can't do this by myself, that's why I want to bring us all together. What do we have? IRC logs? What times has he been active?

I've read that he seemed to be active the times a US citizen would be active. Why did he choose the Asian "name" Satoshi Nakamoto?

We know that this guy (or guys) [are/]is a crypto-nerd, right? So is there anything cryptic about his nick?

Maybe there's something less intuitive in his nick, something recursive?

Sa-to-[sh]i   Na-ka-mo-to <---- Sh  sticks out
a o i             a a o o  <------ just the vocals .. can there be a pattern here? See the connection between the both separate "words"?

What about this (sticking in a o i, as a piece of puzzle fitting into a a o o:

a[a]a
  • oo <--- Shi part sticks out here as well

So, might Shi be significant some how? Let's try putting it in the front to begin with

Shi-sa-to Na-ka-mo-to

Here's a weird one:
Shi-to-na-ka-sa-to

We need clues! And there might not be anything with his name at all. This guy has been so quiet, so it's hard to know much about him.

But if he wanted to be anonymous all along from the beginning, why would he?

Are there famous cryptographic names we can look at, and see if they have gotten any richer lately? This guy must atleast be some cryptoguy.

Satoshi Nakamoto isn't made up from random letters, both are proper Japanese names, about as common as a "James Jones" might be in English.

Let's go all national treasure on this.

Okay, in true Nicholas Cage persona I will make ridiculous claims off insignificant facts:

His initials are SN, SN backwards is SN, serial number, his name has 15 letters, take away the first letters and its 13. AHA! an isbn number, but to what. The name atoshi akamoto must be in code, but whats the cipher. Well, with a japanese name it must be a cipher from the far east. PURPLE, the cipher machine from WWII. Putting his name without the first letters into the cipher we get the ISBN 978-0743457019. Off to DC.

edit: Back again from the Library of Congress. It seems there was a note hidden in the book, will get back to you guys soon.

There was/is a nic registered on this forum. It's not likely that a nic is used by more than one, is it?

LOL are you serious? - many ppl have more than one account and many accounts are used by more than 1 user

Just off the top of my head i can think of 4 BTC "businesses" that share accounts between staff, no harder for a group of users to set up  Wink

I don't really care who coded it. Whether his/her/their anomymity is out of fear of wikileaks fallout or simple humility, I respect the right to privacy. I wouldn't want a false rape charge to smear bitcoin.

*stands* I AM SATOSHI NAKAMOTO

And here's the article you're looking for where he may or may not have been identified:

Satoshi can be one person or more people and he/they possess the biggest number of bitcoins (search transactions or any other way to find where are millions of BTC), and he/they possess the biggest exchanger, mtgox, which ask you to send ID verification to Japan, so, the name Satoshi is Japanese, mtgox is Japanese... is that enough for you to conclude who is/are Satoshi or where to find him/them?

But if he wanted to be anonymous all along from the beginning, why would he?


because government can make the law against bitcoins, when it become enough popular that government become crazy about hidden money (unpaid taxes), and satoshi can finish in the prison or he can be hunted by police.

I hope we never find out who Satoshi is.  Men are weak, ideas are bulletproof.

Beautifully said, yet still a mystery we'd all love to know.

No, let's not find out. I am afraid of what could possibly happen to the guy/group behind that nickname. They want their anonymity for a reason.

The account should at least get the sig pulled if not banned.
