I went through many posts and articles about the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto and made a list of the suspects,
divided into 1) prime suspects, 2)others, and 3) group/institutions
I know some sound very unlikely but I still mention them because I didn't want to make any prejudgments.
Please let me know about other potential candidates. Happy Birthday Bitcoin!

ha, that was a lot longer than expected.

just to mention as usual: there are more potential negatives than positives if SN identity is ever confirmed.

Why chase him when he doesnt want to be found and it has no constructive value?

Cant you put this effort into solving a murder or something? Huh

I'll give you an A for the effort OP but he's the guy who invented world's first crypto-currency, you can't find him unless he wants to be found.

...Or none of the above. I wonder what the chances are of satoshi just being a nobody or complete unknown (or unknowns). Personally I hope he never gets outed because the mystique just makes bitcoin a little bit more mysterious.

Very true my friend. The whole thing reminds me of someone else, well known..can't remember his name for the life of me though..It does give Bitcoin's story a certain sense of wonder.

Personally I reckon it's likely a few people who developed the idea and some of them will likely be on the list.

You forgot one.. Satoshi Nakamoto himself Wink

Nope, he is on the list:

Dorian Prentice Satoshi Nakamoto

His first name is Dorian, middle name is Satoshi.

I think we can really discredit some of these people especially this guy. Would he really go be so silly as to use his actual name? That being said, I am the real Beyonce.

Bow down, bitches.

As a member of BitcoinTalk, you are surrounded by legends; phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. The forum was created by Satoshi Nakamoto and saw the first exchange, the first altcoin, and the first ICO, but also catastrophic software flaws, massive thefts, and incredible scams. You too have an opportunity to become part of the forum's history: whether and in what way you do so is up to you.
