It's easy to track him down.

We have a lot of what he has written, so we analyze it and find matches.

We may even find out that he is many people.

It might also be that it's illegal to create new currencies in most countries. And that such a fortune in bitcoins would be a constant target.

If SN was alive, I am pretty scared about the financial power he already has. He can destroy many lives with just a few mouseclicks and nobody will ever know the real person behind it. Imagine, when the price climbs to 10000$, he has 10 Bio USD. That money already buys an entire country like Liechtenstein. Imagine ISIS were in possesion of that amount? Do we know that Satoshi didn't convert and is planning something evil?

I think that SN have very good reasons to remain Anonymous.
First, if bitcoin community will know his true identity, probably thousands people will try to reach him, ask for help, support etc.
Second, government agencies like IRS may become interested in his income, if he report and paid taxes...
Third, he now have freedom to do whatever he want, spend time with family, enjoy life, travel around the world...
I really ca<n understand why he choose this path.

When Bitcoin goes 10K, I dont think the purchasing power of the dollar will be exactly the same as it is now, so these 10 billion USD may not be worth the current 10 billion. The question is, what is the purchasing power of 1 BTC if the USD goes to shit?

When BTC was 1200$ it had almost the same purchasing power as it has now. There is no need for the $ to fail for Bitcoin to raise in price.

                                           Grin
Satoshi was walking in Bitcoinland one day when he spotted 12 Bitcoiners fishing.
As he was watching,1 of the Bitcoiners said "Let's make sure were all here,it would be a terrible shame if 1 of us has drowned!There was 12 of us left to go fishing so i'll count to make sure were all still here."So he points at them and starts counting " 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11? Oh no,1 of us has drowned,OH, NO!".
 Then another of the Bitcoiners starts counting"1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11!  Oh no 1 of us has drowned right enough"
 Soon all the Bitcoiners have counted the same way and ALL come to 11.
                                They were making a terrible noise wailing and whining.
  All the while Satoshi is watching and shaking his head in disgust at the stupidity of the Bitcoiners.Every 1 of them had forgotten to count themselves.
     So Satoshi walks down to them and asks "what's the problem Bitcoiners?Why are you making such a noise with your awful whining?"
    Oh sir they say" 12 of us went fishing,but we all count 11 of us now,1 of us must be drowned. So were wailing and whining as loud as we can,could you help us please?"
    So Satoshi say's "I'll help you.Walk past me 1 at a time."
    As Each Bitcoiner walked by Satoshi he slapped each 1 in the face."1" slap,"2" slap,"3" slap......He slapped and numbered all 12 of them.
    When he slapped the 12th Bitcoiner they all started cheering and thanking Satoshi furiously for saving 1 of them from drowning.
    "will you come to our homes and let us thank you for saving us" said the Bitcoiners.
                                           "No" said Satoshi.
 "i'm leaving Bitcoinland and i won't be back till i find 12 people in the world that are stupider than you"

This video is kind of funny because as Gavin is explaining what really happened with Satoshi, there is a guy(Legendary Member) in full conspiracy mode talking right over what Gavins trying to tell us. This may be the point that Gavin and Satoshi decided to let the stories run wild, because this video shows the conspiracy theories are more fascinating than the truth that Gavin was trying to let us know.

He doesn't want his life to be in danger. Also, the fact that "Satoshi" controls addresses for over 1 million BTC is an unresolved issue that could greatly damage Bitcoin in the future.

For some reason I dont see Satoshi as a classic family guy... guy's probably a lone wolf that enjoys being lonely investing amazing techy things.

Maybe it was a high school assignment and he had to write it with a pseudonym. Doesn't mean he wants to be anonymous.

Many people actually do that, when they made big money on a legal way.
Also it makes no sense to hide because of the money you have, when you don't even spend something of it - if it was as "untracable" as you imply.
Why not officially burning 1 Mio BTC then for the peace of mind?

The day he decides to spend his BTC, his anonymity would come to an end.  Smiley

Creating a pseudonym was part of the assignment. "Nick Szabo" and "Wei Dai" are also pseudonyms of his classmates. As far as it being "released", that was never his intention.

It can be real name or acronym.

Perhaps it's a real name, there are at least 30 combinations based on Japanese while the surname is only one.

Perhaps it's an acronym of Samsung,Toshiba,Nakamichi and Motorola ,one of their secret projects due to the nature.

Nakamichi in company's detail, known as making high-quality CD players. However CD players can turn into an security system with properly modified.

while the remaining three, may be one of their divisions.

Motorola is good at mobility, also security is considered.
Toshiba and Samsung are good at storage.
Nakamichi is good at designing DSP.

With the view above, I am asking why it is very familiar with my study? Why the eagle allow this?

Perhaps the being fulfills the fast preparation with strong security.
