Since he is not a well known person one can't know who he is unless they know him personally. The only way to know who he is; is to find out what other new work he has done aside from bitcoin.

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.

Lol. Yeah. I think another forum member was able to figure out who he is (or they are) using google, which was confirmed by the mods who asked him to keep quiet; the CIA aren't going to have much trouble finding someone at least as capable as randomforumguy.

But as we know, Satoshi is no threat to anyone now, he shot his load. The only scenario in which some government might want a word (killed? lmao noobs) is if he became a heroic symbol of the anti-statists who hang out here, such symbols can be crushed as a warning to others. Perhaps even worse than this is getting 1000 messages a day from the degraded sort that hang around here, asking for money, advice, sexual favours, press interviews. Nobody wants to arrive home to find their cat missing and see a ransom note demanding 'gazillions of bitcoins or kitty gets it.'

Thanks dude. Just thought this forum would benefit from people lightening up a bit. Every other post here is almost too serious and too dark. We need a bit of fun and fantasy with BTC's to make it approachable.

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

I just wrote that as a joke, to get people to relax a bit about who or what Satoshi could or could not be.

I believe that it's best we respect Satoshi's wish to remain anonymous, being that anonymity is one of the protocol's notable features.

Uhhhhh ..... you do know the whole "John Titor" thing is a joke, don't you? I'm sorry you took my comment seriously. I'll get the hang of emoticons one day, I promise.

Yes I'm aware of the whole John Titor thing. It's fun sci-fi stuff.

satoshi wrote a paper with some clever maths in it. then helped develop V1 of the client.....

so why would the CIA/FBI want to find him?

all of his calculations and coding is open source so its not like he has any coding secrets that prevent governments doing anything differently..(thats the beauty of open source)

and if the governments want to take over bitcoin they would just start paying gavin andresen and chums a salary.

Satoshi's importance from a government prospective is irrelevant.

but from a Nobel prize or historical point of view only there would be reason to want to know who satoshi is, just to give the guy a pat on the back for a job well done

Satoshi could have been a woman. A group of hackers. It doesn't matter. He is all of us now. He is an idea

'All of us'
99% here only cares about bitcoin price in USD $, not bitcoin itself

Pretty sure Satoshi is not a woman, a woman can't be so dedicated to such project over an extended period of time. Show me one historical proof that a woman voluntarily worked years on a scientific experiment in such a dedicated way that would or would not be successful to a broader audience. Don't want to be disrespectful, just showing that men and women are not the same in this world, we have inherent different motivations in this world.

Satoshi wasn't a group either. He speaks as one, acts as one, codes as one, he is one.

maybe some criminals care to transact thru bitcoin, but apart from this it has no added value to the common good. in fact, it has anti-value (permanent energy sink).

I hope for the sake of cryptocurrencies, Satoshi is working on a non Energy consuming p2p currency.

Worked at a university -> got paid -> not voluntarily (projects must be approved)

You can only break my theory by showing that Satoshi got paid to make Bitcoin... which would add some whole different 'layer' to bitcoin that probably no one here would like to know about if it exists

I believe the statement "we cannot prove the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto" is unprovable.
