I have a guess as to where he was on a particular weekend last millennium...

Please, no more hints, otherwise the surprise slated to be revealed at Bitcoin2013 will be all in vain.  Wink

By the way, as anyone ever suggested Satoshi makes a AMA on reddit?

If he really wants to stay anonymous, I guess he could use ToR.

Al Gore is Satoshi.

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

Though he personally denies it. I know he's a clever kinda finance techy guy, but is it possible he's not quite that clever? 'Cause Satoshi's a phreaking genius of Turingesque proportions, and Bitcoin is one of the biggest spit stirrers since JFK's red bills.

it is amusing that so many people think that satoshi must be some 'famous' figure, as if the talent pool to assemble bitcoin's technologies was so small. that is a strange application of the availability heuristic and obviously an irrational guess. the world is big. nobody, when encountering emule or bittorrent, said 'this must have been created by someone i've heard of' - and they wouldn't have done even if the creators of those platforms had been anonymous.

actually, the more remarkable features of bitcoin's development are its creativity and its sensitive use of various arbitrary constants that turned out to fit reality exceptionally well. perhaps some of that was a lucky accident, but it bears noting that several choices satoshi made turned out to be very good ones.

it's very likely satoshi was unknown - a quant developer with significant systems experience at some city financial firm. it is also possible that he has some experience, and was known to, those in some corners of the open-source-software world. past experience with distributed systems and security would make candidates more likely. he was not a crypto expert, which you can tell from reading his postings carefully. (he was knowledgeable in the use of crypto but not its development.) he was clearly not an attention seeker, which indeed makes the 'famous' candidates absurdly unlikely.

The first thing Satoshi will have to do after announcing he is Satoshi is pay a bunch of income tax on his genesis coins.
Block 32485 was mined 2009-12-31 23:51:57. and a total of 1,624,250 BTC existed then, with only 27% moved. Somebody(s) in the small circle of early miners has kept ~1.2M BTC which is currently worth $135,360,000.00 USD

Somebody needs to put together "The Writing of Satoshi Nakamoto" book so that we can judge for ourselves.

Yes, printed up as a small yellow-covered paperback it could be "The Thoughts of Master Satoshi" known as "Satoshi's Little Yellow Book". It would be carried through the streets worldwide by thousands of young protestors from the various "occupy" movements in their struggle against the evil bankers.

Nice try, but no. They aren't worth that much.

.00 is a decimal. Also price went up, 1,200,000 BTC is now worth $148,320,000 USD for whoever mined those early coins and never spent them. Wonder what kind of ID you have to provide to cash that out on MtGox

I think Satoshi Nakamoto is really John Titor.

That IBM 5100 came in handy after all....

Serious question: IF someone were to ever step up to claim they are Satoshi Nakamoto, is there anything built into bitcoin that would work as undeniable proof? i.e. is there a known public key that would allow verification of a signed message?
