As we use this forum and see it!
Theymos is our awesome admin
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=35

But i always thought that Theymos created the forum and continued to develop it so well!
Seeing this thread

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5.0

Satoshi welcome's everyone to new forum , dumping up the old one .
My question is who exactly created the forum Huh
I always thought it was Theymos , but it seems Satoshi was original creator of this forum.
Then how did Theymos got his admin post , did satoshi appoint him as being one of the early adopter's ?

PS : that is the first post for General people though there were 4 more theads for testing by satoshi
https://bitcointalk.org/first_topics/

Thanks to theymos for providing this to us .
It got some really awesome and great things Cheesy

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

Satoshi did.

He handed it off to Theymos quite quickly though.

The forum was created by satoshi. The domain is owned by Sirius, and managed by theymos.

I am not sure how theymos became administrator of the forum, however he is one of the very early users of bitcointalk.

I'm not sure of the particulars but I heard there was a sizable donation of coins to this forum for its operation to some extent.  Lips sealed Sounds like a very interesting timeline tho. I'd like to hear Theymos' opinions of the Bitcoin market up to this point, not sure I've ever been graced with this person's presence. Smiley Would be like a mystery unfolding..

As i am seeing it's really exciting to find this , Theymos says in his old posts as the link provided by JackthiKing
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=881877.0
That he heard it first on 4chan

Would really be awesome if he can write how it all happened, how he became a admin
Would be like a legend , from a simple man to the admin of Bitcointalk  Roll Eyes

He is not extensively involved in the forum, although my understanding is that he is involved in bitcoin in other ways.

Back in 2011 theymos was solicating donations for people to donate 10 BTC to get a special 'donator' status, and 50 BTC to get a special 'VIP' status. Several people donated, enough so that the forum received over 5,000 BTC that was to be used to host the forum (which is now free curtsy of Private Internet Access) and to upgrade the forum software

I have no idea what the specifics of the agreement are, however I assume that it has something to do with the fact that theymos gives PIA one free forum advertisement slot as well as a link at the bottom of every page

The story of how I became head admin is actually pretty boring. Moderators were needed, so I was made a global moderator. Then admins were needed, so I was made an admin. Then over time the other admins slowly lost interest and resigned until I was the only one left. I guess most of the people who were around here to see this have more-or-less left the community now. That's a bit sad.

It's not entirely clear, but for simplicity I usually say that I became head admin at the beginning of 2011, a little over a year after the forum was created.

The forum was originally located at bitcoin.org/smf, then forum.bitcoin.org (hence the redirect), and finally bitcointalk.org. Fun fact: The name "bitcointalk" was invented by Jeff Garzik, and he's the one who bought the domain.
