Really doubt Satoshi was a government agent though he/she/they could have worked for a certain 3 letter agency. What would be the point of remaining anonymous if Bitcoin was sanctioned by the govmint?

i think is obvious why he remains anonymous, , just think about it, you would like to be known if you were him? ofc no.

He did very well from my point of view, he bring us a really good idea and leave us to enjoy it, beleive me, to be satoshi is a big risk.

If everything goes well, we will see the real impact of cryptocurrencies soon, very very soon, and we will see how the finance world will  start to care ( more than now ) about this and after that just ask to yourselft if you would like to be known if you were him...

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 ?

If the gov had access to 1 Mio Bitcoins they would have sold them a long time ago.

From what I read about SN, he had some mental issues(like most geniuses) and couldn't really handle all the attention, he would get, if his true identity would be known.

Possible the wallets known to belong to SN are kept unchanged to carry forward the mystery or truth; while so many others actually controlled by SN are emptied. One can also use the publicly known wallets as collateral.

There is no proof, about other wallets belonging to SN which were moved after his disapearance, but there is this proof for 1/13 of the currently existing Bitcoins belonging to SN.

Satoshi is a homosexual and was worried about Gawker releasing an article labeling Bitcoin as Faggotcoin. Gavin and Satoshi talked over the benefits and drawbacks of being open with the world's intelligence agencies and, in the end, Satoshi decided it was valuable to everyone to try maintaining a "clean image" for Bitcoin by having Gavin go to the CIA, but decided his involvement absolutely had to end, or else the CIA would have started threatening to release images of Satoshi in compromising positions to Gawker. Satoshi left the project a martyr but is definitely still alive, scraping by through extorting old-timers with assassination, bitter over the failure of Gavin's "Bitcoin orientation" for the CIA with regard to purifying Bitcoin's public image.

That has to be it. I'm so glad we finally resolved this once and for all. OP please lock this thread because there's nothing left to discuss. lol

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.

I would theorise that maybe his "day job" was research funded by DARPA, maybe making 70-100K a year, while his bitcoins, if dumped, were not worth that then, nor were quite valuable enough to start living off, precarious position.

Well, in 2013 one of his original accounts woke up to state that he wasn't Dorian Nakamoto.

We don't know anything for sure.
We can't even be sure that satoshi nakamoto represent just one person, not the organization, that he is Japanese or whatever... Smiley
But, we can be sure that he is genius, with brilliant ideas and that he started something really revolutionary.
BTC have some difficulties right now but I'm sure that soon we will see that price raise again.
Why he choose to remain Anonymous?
I think he don't like publicity and don't want to deal with the press or government.

It was not signed, so it was not him.

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.


It is obvious he committed suicide after seeing his brilliant code cloned into numerous altcoins used to perpetuate scams.
