Satoshi's still around. He's just working on another coin at the moment.
THE coin?

Another silly thread about the fantasy that Satoshi is a group of multiracial  LGTB agents working for the NSA.

Satoshi is one person, a man, white, and probably American.  He got the idea from reading Nick Szabo's blog, or from direct communication with Nick Szabo, or because he is Nick Szabo.

I would also bet on Nick Szabo:

Dr. Jack Grieve, a lecturer in forensic linguistics at Aston, said:

"The number of linguistic similarities between Szabo’s writing and the Bitcoin paper is uncanny, none of the other possible authors were anywhere near as good of a match. We are pretty confident that out of the primary suspects Nick Szabo is the main author of the paper, though we can’t rule out the possibility that others contributed."

My guess is a single man ideal and a group effort to cover all aspects of the bitcoin infrastructure.


I guess!

I am not familiar with scientific papers but I do know that some legal documents uses  "We" as "I" is not formal for it.

You know who HASN'T denied being Nakamoto? Saddam Hussein.

Thanks, Obamacare!

Remember Aaron Swartz, a 26 year old computer scientist who died defending the free flow of information.

I would also bet on Nick Szabo:

I actually think that it isn't him.  Nick Szabo came up with the idea for Bitcoin, but he isn't known to be an excellent coder.  Many smart people read his blog http://unenumerated.blogspot.com/ .  I believe that one of them saw his idea and implemented it.  So that's my theory: Satoshi is some guy who read Szabo's blog.

'We' makes it sound much like a community and much more welcoming to those who are new to the whole cryptocurrency world.

As it was said already, in academic papers one writes "we", not "I". Even when you present a work oraly at a conference, typically you also say "we" even if you did everything alone.
So the only thing clear is that Satoshi know(s) academic writing style.

Though the white paper follows writing standards of the academic world, in my opinion the writing aspect is not as high level as for instance a paper in a high impact, well-reviewed journal. When reading, it is clear the paper didn't go through a reviewing process.
I believe this is actually positive because the white paper that way is very accessible to many people, a background in computer science is sufficient to get pretty much everything unlike most papers in a journal of a specific sub-field.

Monero's privacy and therefore fungibility are MUCH stronger than Bitcoin's. 
This makes Monero a better candidate to deserve the term "digital cash".
