Well when artists die their art value increases, so maybe if Satoshi dies the value of bitcoin will increase too.
There would be no way to confirm that, so no.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Ok, let's assume that the following scenario is actually possible, I would like to know how you feel when all these things happen at the same time:

Bitcoin is under a 66% attack (double spends are happening)
Is also banned by the US, Russian, EU and China government by threat of 30 years jail time.
The real satoshi (proven by something) is found dead, killed.

I am a big bitcoin fan, but under the scenario you have described bitcoin has lost a lot of its appeal, as has living in the US and EU.  I don't think poor satoshi's demise is much of an issue, unless his heirs are going to spend his 1M coins!

Well the only absolute certainty would be time say 100 years from now then we can kind of assume natural death but not be around to claim it
But don't think that would work on the principle that he is alive or dead anyways.

When it comes to crypto, you cant realy ignore the fact that sometimes its better to sell even if you know the price will eventualy go up.
look at litecoin, its going just down and down, but you know its gonna go up again.
so the best solution is to hold, until you are certain that you will be able to buy back in lower.

NOT true, you do NOT know its going to go back up, you are just thinking wishfully.

I voted for "Spend almost all on goods" because I figure that, if there is anybody in the U.S. government who actually cares about the economy, they'll notice if every single Bitcoin user does that right before it becomes illegal. Of course, it probably won't be worth much at that point, but they'll notice.
