My pet unprovable theory is that Satoshi (I think it is a single person) works for a government organisation for his day job and Bitcoin was his home hobby project. That organisation would come down hard on him if they ever found out he had released Bitcoin so he can never reveal himself. This thought gives me closure and peace that I will never know who he (I think it is a boy!) is.

We know who is Satoshi Nakamoto the day he chooses to reveal himself (if he still alive) until that happens, all we can do is speculations

me wonder if the reason Satoshi disappeared is because he ended up in jail for some shady reason or another.
many major players in the early bitcoin community are going to prison.

This is a wonder according to me and will remain a wonder. Satoshi will not be live never. In this way will remain a myth.

Same here. For some purpose he has hidden his identity. May be he will appear before us one day. That day may be celebrated for this reason for long time. Let's wait for seeing him.

I don't know, but apparently "he" did tell WikiLeaks not to take Bitcoin because he didn't want the negative attention...

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/cryptocurrency-round-nakamoto-pleaded-wikileaks-bitcoin-boosted-by-dcc-1465842

What is apparent to me is that the the Western intelligence apparatus is capable of discovering his identity and equally capable of destroying Bitcoin if the central banks wanted it done yet though don't.  The DOJ has even said Bitcoin has beneficial purposes.  I think for monetary policy and other reasons the idea of a cashless economy with a traceable ledger is appealing to central banks and regulators.

I saw this article posted on Btcointalk a few days ago - it's from the UK's most popular broadsheet, the Daily Telegraph, and quotes the Bank of England's Chief Economist (the BoE is the UK's central bank, the British equivalent of the Fed):

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/bank-of-england/11874061/Negative-interest-rates-could-be-necessary-to-protect-UK-economy-says-Bank-of-England-chief-economist.html

Quote
Traditionally policymakers have resisted cutting rates below zero because when the returns on savings fall into negative territory, it encourages people to take their savings out of the bank and hoard them in cash.

This could slow, rather than boost, the economy. It would be possible to get around the problem of hoarding by abolishing cash, Mr Haldane said, adding: "What I think is now reasonably clear is that the payment technology embodied in [digital currency] Bitcoin has real potential."

Its also beneficial to those in favor of the surveillance state.  It would create a log that they could reference years down the line if they wanted to "get" someone for financial crimes...

But I agree, knowing the combined intelligence capabilities of the cia/nsa/etc, they should know who "satoshi" is, or at least be capable of identifying him if they wanted to.  For some reason I dont think they want to, makes me suspicious why they dont want to id him.   Unless of course they already have, and are using that info to their advantage...

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?

How old is he?  Roll Eyes

Based on the quality of the design/platform, I would surmise it wasn't written by a single person. Personally, I believe it was created as a way of maintaining quasi-liquidity during global financial turmoil. The ledger also allows trackbacks/history, so it would not surprise me if it was created by a nation state or states. The math and design are too elegant for a single person to have designed imho, but not out of the realm of possibilities.

The ledger is globally accessible, which would allow people with the means to track transactions during the fiat -> btc / btc-> fiat transition. When I see thousands of ATM's in my country that have no cameras I will remove my suspicions. Smiley

This is why I think btc was created by a group of people, and they used the name "satoshi" so that there was always a mystery man (who doesnt actually exist) at the center of btc.  That way people spend their time looking for this "lone programmer", and the longer the group remains anonymous, the better their chances of staying anonymous are

To many things are created by only one person. To many invention are created by only one person. Why bitcoin must not be created by only one person?

He probably lost the keys and doesn't want to admit that, because everybody would call him dummy.  So he stays hidden to avoid life long embarrassment.
