Don't you roll your eyes at me, young man!

 Shocked I apologize I didn't immediately recognize you, Sir Nakamoto! Good masquerade!

Thank you. I think every forum member should be accused of being Satoshi Nakamoto at least once in their lives. Thanks for being my first, Sato- ....er Hertzmeister.

Satoshi is someone who is sad his invention is now being used by greedy mofo's trying to get rich off the next greedy mofo's instead of real trade

that's why he left in 2010 anyway, read his last comments
link?
Did he seriously not think speculation would occur in something as disruptive as BTC? I think he's a smarter fellow than that

Satoshi Nakamoto is an harmonic wave that balances the equation, who he is is irrelevant really, it doesn't really matter to the people who think on the grand scheme of things. If he wouldn't do it then someone else would, perhaps a year, two, maybe even ten or a hundred down the road.

If that's even his name. Just read the bitcoin wiki on him and I'm amazed. Nobody knows him.

Long time passed since he last posted in here. Why? "Busy"? I don't think so. He was active when bitcoin needed support but since the slashdot...
Also, it seems has knowledge in many areas, especially economy. He doesn't act like the average human. Not taking advantage out of his creation, leaving without telling anything. Is he even a single person or a group?

How can someone create something so great and not stepping out to get the credit?

I've been curious about this.  Nobody that I know of, knows.  But there's some clues.  I have some good guesses.  Minds like Satoshi may come along only a few times in a generation.

Group or individual?

Both! 

I believe the lions share of satohsi's work was done by a single genius.

Certainly he was helped in places, but I think that was sparing rather than a proper group effort.

Nationality?

Almost certainly a british mathematician.   

There's clues he has lived in germany and japan.  His gmx address (common in germany) is linked to his public GPG key.

Background?

Satoshi is the top class of top class mathematicians.  He's also an incredible programmer.  He's certainly been around the crypto comunity for many years.  He has good competency in accountancy and economics.

Education?

You'll have to trust me on this one.  The British school system is such that almost all of the top mathematical talent are sent to Cambridge.  In fact, to a specific college, Trinity.  Satoshi was almost certainly of this calibre.  I know this sounds speculative, but it would be like predicting Messi played in La Liga.

I wonder if he did a PhD

Satoshi has also self educated in many fields and been in and around the mailing lists

Age?

Unknown but almost certainly above 30.  The 37 age he gave may be close, so he'd be around about 40 now.

Profession?

This is the hardest of all.  Did he become an academic?  Did he work in a big accountancy firm.  Or an investment bank.  Did he become a programmer. 


Almost no one knows but him ... and maybe a very small circle ... I'd love to find out, and look forward to his return!

Nup, I don't trust you cause I know a thing or two about this and you're off the mark  Smiley. Too narrow. There are a few colleges at both Oxford and Cambridge that could be considered ... could be US German French also if you are going to narrowly focus on math skills only. And after all that, maybe the math skills were self-taught and the other stuff was training?

i just noticed something in reading satoshi's old posts on the cypherpunk mailing list: he uses two spaces after a full stop, not just one. i don't have hard data, but i believe this practice correlates strongly with age. that is, i suspect very few people younger than 35 have learnt to type that way.

Arent there supposed to be programs that now claim to be able to anaylse and detect with reasonable accuracy if a piece of content comes from the same person as another piece or not?

In other words, get hold of some written material from eg Max Keiser and other suspects, and put it through the program together with Satoshi's posts and see how they compare.

Wonder if this program is available somewhere on the web, either as a web based service or else as a downloadable install...

Each generation, each century and each millennia has its own Messiahs saving or elevating humanity.
Today the society is enslaved by the banking system, the Messiah of our time is the one who can liberate us.
Satoshi might be our Messiah.

He may have been doing that just to throw you off, though. Unlike most ways of modifying your speech patters, that's very easy to do.

heh. anything's possible, but i've never been a conspiracy theorist. in fact, i doubt this sort of disguise would occur to most younger people.

Finding Satoshi

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

In the year 2140 A.D., corporations and bankers ruled the world without mercy.  The masses were penniless and without hope. Death was the only liberation for every new-serf brought into that world.  "Decent" people never lived below the 60th floor.

Much to the disappointments of his ridiculing associates, a professor by the name of Satoshi secretly tolled for years envisioning a world that could have been different - one that was not so desperately dystopian, where the dreams of many were not robbed away by the greed of the few.  

Eventually, Satoshi had gained contact with underground rebel forces and a new resistance was forged.  They fought their way to the heavily guarded Nakamoto Industries, to find the rumored quantum-computer that ping messages back in time.  A template was backloaded to the year 2008, when 3D printing was still in its infancy -- where a 3D-printed clone of Satoshi emerged.

But moments before the clone could initiate the upload of his P2P currency exchange program, his unstable form disintegrated into dust.  A blinking cursor and an enter key was all which stood between two very different futures.

Satoshi (circa 2140) was arrested and submitted for execution without trial.  Staring down the barrels of death, a smile came over his face - one filled with such hopeful optimism not witnessed by mankind for over a 100 years.  Unsure of what to make of this, the 502's - the bankers' private gestapo unit - squeezed the triggers.

Suddenly, in a blink of an eye, the vanguards of fiat and stolen wealth faded out of existence.  These elites and their mega-structures crumbled under their own weight; they flew off into the wind... as irrelevant as footprints in the sands of time.  Perhaps by luck, The Resistance's plan succeeded -- someone pushed the enter key, causing a Ripple that changed the past and thus time itself.  

Man's darkest hours at the hands of bankers had been undone, his chains were finally shattered.  

The once regulated were now freed.

Satoshi had won.

So you're saying Satoshi is John Titor? That's not very helpful, you know.

It's not hard to work out who drafted the white paper, what is less easy to understand is how many were on the team.

Edit: has anyone else got as far as I have?

The guidance pulled no punches with respect to a “creator” of a de-centralized virtual currency. The creator of Bitcoin, known as Satoshi Nakamoto, falls squarely within these rules to the extent he is “a person that creates units of convertible virtual currency and sells those units to another person for real currency”.


This is why whoever Satoshi really is can never out himself.

As if the NSA/CIA/FBI don't know exactly who he is...
Seal Team 6 could take him out in 48 hours...
And confiscate his pr0n collection.

If that's even his name.

No, his real name is Edward M. Scheidt.
