I am sure this question keeps bugging lot of folks like me. My guesses

1 SN (I will use SN because I don't know if it is a he/she or they) foresaw what we have seen happening with BTC (and copies/improvements) in the last seven years and didn't want to be known as the originator of such a course of events

2 SN was a government agent; which government should be easy to guess. After finishing the mandate such a person/group will obviously need to stay away from claiming it.

Thanks for your wise inputs.

Maybe he just wants to avoid all the attention. Or the accusation, whatever it is. Thus, I don't believe satoshi is gone forever. He might still be around working behind the scene, thinking on how to improve bitcoin.

SN is a group of people that started an experiment. they feared what the fed might do to them so they remained anonymous.

I guess he knew Bitcoin was gonna be Popular at the him Bitcoin was invented so he remained anonymous from the very beginning.
I heard somewhere that someone warned him  his Tor Ip was leaked and if satoshi didn't pay some bitcoins to the person, The Person was gonna sell his real ip in an Auction in the Dark Web! Some Possible Reasons For him to Be anonymous are:
1) Maybe He Isn't Alive! Cry
2) Maybe He Doesn't want to Take Credits!
3) Maybe He is not a human Tongue (I don't mean he is a dog or a donkey..Maybe "Satoshi" the alien went to his own planet!)
 
I don't know about 1) and 2) But I think 3) is more scientific and True Tongue Lol

I disagree on some points there mate , I'am pretty sure that even Satoshi him self didn't knew that bitcoin will be popular at least not to that much . He probably got other reasons to stay annonymus one of them that he is dead maybe ... or he simply don't wanna get issues with goverment (accusations for silk road and other illegal stuff that is happening with Bitcoin) or he simply don't want to be famous ... I mean he already have his coins , I'am pretty sure he can spend them whenever he wants to  Roll Eyes

He stays anonymous because he wants to be safe from the government, terrorists and paparazzis.

3. He never existed in the first place. He was a necessary construct to add mystery and credence to the project. A project from a missing visionary is 100x more valuable than one from an available average Joe. The way to instantly discount someone's brillance is to let them open their mouth. He has no mouth to open. People spend their time deciphering the few writings we have from him like they were the Dead Sea scrolls.

Wow, never thought of it this way but this might be the truth. Send people off to a wild goose chase like in that movie "usual suspects" where they kept looking for "Keyser Soze - the guy behind the guy behind the guy"

First thanks for adding a valuable guess.

Ref : A project from a missing visionary is 100x more valuable than one from an available average Joe. I am probably not capable of judging this. But it makes me wonder about the millions of patents and IP generating I can't estimate how much value....a trillion dollars maybe ?

Another one of these threads? Seriously if you were him, would you want all this unwanted attention? Sure you want have some fame, but you almost might get insta-murdered. Not everyone chases the fame.

He is dead

You are speaking so confidently as if you killed him Tongue

I am in favour of the "He is dead theory", because he left when the CIA starts to get involved and he never spent one satoshi of his known wealth of 1 Mio Bitcoins after his dissapearing.

Which validates that SN was a government agent. Secondly, which group is the single largest beneficiary of BTC through the past 6 or 7 years ?

He did exactly the sort of thing I'd do if I ever discovered something as big as Bitcoin, release it open source across the net and get the fuck out of there, if he had kept working on the code, even working on it after releasing it, he'd immediately become a target, supposedly even Amir Taaki has been chased up by government recruiters before.

The people who make up shit about Satoshi either don't realise how serious an impact cryptocurrencies are going to have on finance and they don't appreciate the kind of enemies people who go up against the finance sector face.

Absolutely agree with the impact altcoins already have had on the financial sector and how blockchain technology is further rewiring some financial tradeable products as I type.
