Key facts:

Despite the fact that Satoshi Nakamoto communicated with others since 2008, nothing is known of him.The creator of Bitcoin has a wallet with almost 1 million of BTC that has not been movido.De Satoshi Nakamoto, we know rather little. Despite being the creator (or group of creators) of Bitcoin, Nakamoto is simply an enigma egregious. Despite the fact that we are in the era of information, all the movements on the Internet leave a trace, and the identity of users is often compromised at a certain level, Satoshi continues to be an entity completely anonymous.Despite this reality, in the more than 10 years of history that already has Bitcoin, several people have been identified as possible Satoshis. The list includes a number of different profiles, and in this article we will share with you several of the main suspects of being Nakamoto.

Candidates to Satoshi


Some of the main suspects embody Satoshi were members of the mailing list of cypherpunks, a group of activists from privacy and cryptography, were referenced in the White paper of Bitcoin or participated very early. We talk about Nick Szabo, Wei Dai, and Hal Finney.Szabo is one of the leading vocal, more visible in the community and one of the pioneers in terms of the concept of digital money and decentralized contracts smart. The developer and cryptographer u.s. in addition created a type of digital money very similar to Bitcoin, called Bit gold, although some time before the solution, Nakamoto known. He himself has refused on numerous occasions to be Satoshi.In the case of Dai, who also created a similar product with B-Money, is similar to Bitcoin. Despite the fact that he has denied in several occasions these assumptions, your relationship early and directly with Bitcoin has led to it being suspected of being Satoshi Nakamoto. His work is one of the few documents cited as sources in the White paper, Nakamoto, and there are large similarities between one and another. However, according to Dai and the developer and cryptographer Adam Back, Satoshi had no knowledge of the project, Dai.

I understand that the creator of Bitcoin, known by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto, didn’t even read my article before you re-invent the idea himself. He learned later, and I credited in your document. Then my connection with the project is quite limited.Wei Dai, cryptographer, and developer

Finally, Hal Finney, who we can consider as the first bitcoiner. Finney, cryptographer, who had worked in a number of major projects before getting involved with Bitcoin, followed the project since it had knowledge of him. In fact, he was the one who received the first transaction from the network, when Nakamoto sent him 10 BTC. Finney also denied these suspicions, before a degenerative disease will fulminara. It is currently criogenizado.

Dorian Nakamoto

Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto is one of the most well known faces of Bitcoin, and this by the mere fact of having the same name as the author in the White paper of the criptomoneda. Despite the fact that Dorian has also worked as a consultant for the u.s. government and other projects, this is not Nakamoto.Dorian Nakamoto to show their id in an interview to Channel 4 News / youtube.comTodo the imbroglio was due to an article published by Newsweek in 2014. In the article it was pointed out to him as the creator of Bitcoin from a misunderstanding. Supposedly Dorian Nakamoto would have stated that he was not working with Bitcoin, but an explanatory post on the subject pointed out that referred to his work as a consultant for the government. The interview was conducted by journalist Leah McGrath Goodman. Dorian Nakamoto you were frozen their bank accounts, and the original user of the creator of Bitcoin at the Foundation P2P went out to the passage of these accusations, noting that he was not Dorian Nakamoto.

Paul Calder Le Roux

But Nakamoto has not been linked only with geeks and cypherpunks, also with criminals. Such is the case of Paul Calder Le Roux, who is repsonsable of the creation of software cryptographic E4M and TrueCrypt. According to a research, Le Roux is the author of a project extremely similar to Bitcoin, but it was released a decade before the White paper, Nakamoto, that is to say, in 1998.An item that gives some support to this theory is that Le Roux is in prison since 2012, exactly the year in which Nakamoto stopped its activity related to Bitcoin. His name jumped to the fore in the midst of the legal dispute between David Kleiman and Craig Wright, who has claimed, without evidence, to be the real Nakamoto. Wirght assured that, if disclosed, could face reprisals criminal, related with Le Roux. In addition, you have an alias similar to “Solotshi” and is familiar both with the cryptography as the language of computer programming in C++.

Bilal Khalid

The last “candidate” in addition to the list was the course developer, Bilal Khalid. This subject would have generated a significant buzz prior to its disclosure, the whole time that some means of communication outlined that Satoshi Nakamoto in person was going to reveal, just before the announcement of Khalid.Remember that Ivy McLemore, a specialist in marketing and public relations, announced that the “visionary” creator of this criptomoneda would be revealed to the public and also would to know some details like its origin, his academic training and the reasons why that has not moved or one of the bitcoins that are in your wallet. Recall that a wallet associated with Satoshi Nakamoto contains 980.000 bitcoins.Despite this announcement and the small commotion that was caused at the beginning, the attempt of Khalid was just an anecdote. In fact, Ricardo Spagni, developer of the altcoin focused on privacy, Monero (XMR), gave the lie to this “revelation”.The developer of Monero explained that Khalid lied with regard to the “origin” of the name “Bitcoin”. The course Nakamoto would have said that it was the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, although according to the evidence of Spagni, Khalid registered an account with the support of BCCI Group, whose description on their website, it was really Blue-Chip International (BCCI). Khalid would have forged their evidence.

Other possible Nakamoto

It has even been suggested that, given that it is not known if Satoshi Nakamoto is a person or group of persons, including the National Security Agency (NSA) could be related to the creation of Bitcoin, as they would have worked in a similar solution. This thesis has been suggested and argued from the views of a specialist in cyber security and privacy, Edward Snowden.It is fair to say that while Craig Wright has said that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, in repeated opportunities, until now, has not been able to verify this, being pointed out as a “fraud” by a number of major spokesmen of Bitcoin through social networks. Wright has failed in the verification of his claim to have not given any test cryptographic consistent.As we have seen, the list of possible or suspected Satoshis is long. Up to now, more than 10 years after the emergence of Bitcoin, the author of this powerful solution to the problem of double-spending of digital cash still remains in the anonymity, and the protocol continues to work, as 99.98% of the time since the creation of their block genesis.

Last Week Today: Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Weekly Digest for August 19-26

Satoshi Nakamoto Renaissance Holdings, which claims to be a new blockchain company, hired the services of Ivy McLemore, a New York based PR …
  • A new individual claims he is Satoshi in risible PR stunt
  • Liquidity analysis pegs Bitcoin’s market dominance beyond 90%
  • Japanese Amazon launches cryptocurrency wallet and exchange
  • Original faketoshi, Craig Wright loses Kleiman lawsuit

Yes, as we can all see, the price of bitcoin dropped over $550 in a matter of hours on August 28th to see a low of $9,613 BTC/USD after being $10,269 earlier in the day. But, aside from the real time action, let’s recap the last week of bitcoin and cryptocurrency news stories and map out a timeline of what transpired for those who may have missed any important headlines.

Another Satoshi Wannabe Emerges With Sob Story And New Project to Shill

Before getting stuck into this story, it would be remiss not to make it unequivocally clear that this is a story that I would much rather not cover, were it not for the publicity and conspicuity it has been afforded in mainstream media.

With the most notorious claim to the moniker, courtesy of Craig Wright, falling apart at the seams in the middle of a Florida courtroom, it would seem many a wannabe Satoshi is now emboldened to step into the breach with some pretty ridiculous backstories.

Satoshi Nakamoto Renaissance Holdings, which claims to be a new blockchain company, hired the services of Ivy McLemore, a New York based PR agency, to reveal the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto.

A three-part reveal was published last week over the course of three days by the PR firm and it has left many in the crypto community fuming and wondering just how much more blatantly false and downright preposterous these claims are going to get and what it’s going to take to stop the faketoshi farce.

The individual claiming to be Satoshi was revealed by many online to be Bilal Khalid from Pakistan, by looking up the registration for another website he owned, even before he himself came around to revealing his identity in the third installment of his three-part reveal on the website.

Most of the efforts at debunking the claims focused on the use of basic word press, multiple edits and poor choice of words, but all that is really of any relevance is whether he is able to sign a message from Satoshi’s address, which predictably he cannot.

As narrated to Ivy McLemore, Bilal talks about the origins of the Bitcoin idea as everyone knows it, the cryptography mailing list et all., and then explains the provenance of the Bitcoin name as stemming from a disgraced, defunct Pakistani bank, Bank of CredIT and COmmerce INternational (BCCI).

He shows proof of registering a domain named after BCCI in 2008, talks about being paranoid over his identity, says his pseudonym was inspired by Chaldean numerology, thanks Hal Finney and explains how he solved the Byzantine General’s Problem.

In parts two and three, he narrates his life story, which comes across as a cookie-cutter sob story – about how being denied banking services in the UK inspired him to create a currency independent of banks, losing access to his email addresses and his 980,000 bitcoins.

Bilal Khalid, who adopted the alias James Caan in the UK, claims that he mined his bitcoins using a remote computer, which he then transferred to his Fujitsu laptop and then to an Acer laptop. Being of the habit of “never leaving data that was recoverable on any remote PC or laptop,” he then wiped all the data from old devices.

As luck would have it, the Acer stopped working the very next day. He sent it to Acer support, who diagnosed a corrupt hard drive and replaced it. Thus, Satoshi lost his 980,000 bitcoins.

In all of this tedious yarn, where exactly is there any semblance of proof to adduce this individual’s claim to being the creator of Bitcoin?

Ignore the story, but does the reveal consist of any verifiable information at all that only Satoshi and maybe a few early contributors, someone like Andresen, would be privy to?

Everything in the reveal, besides the individual’s life story, is publicly available information. The best thing you could say about this wannabe’s claim is that it can justifiably be argued to warrant a B-grade disaster fiction movie.

Ivy McLemore doesn’t seem like a serious PR firm but if it has any designs on being one someday, it should have simply said to Bilal, “Cool story, bro. But do you have any actual proof?”

Is Bitcoin More Dominant Than What Market Cap Indicates?

We tend to measure Bitcoin’s dominance by calculating the share of its market cap against the combined market cap of all cryptocurrencies but how reliable is the method?

Arcane Research published an analysis last week based on volume and liquidity of the various markets to show that Bitcoin’s actual dominance might be a lot higher than what market cap data suggest. The study claims that the market cap measure is deeply flawed and underestimates the relative strength of Bitcoin.

The argument put forth is that the market cap does not reckon for liquidity, which is the ability to execute large orders in a market without slippage and a tight spread between ask and bid prices. A good indicator of liquidity is volume and the study uses volume to measure the relative dominance of different currencies.

Using this method, which excludes stablecoins as a fiat alternative, thus not being true cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin’s dominance is estimated to be over 90%.

By using volume data only from the top 10 exchanges, which are largely regulated and reputed to not indulge in wash trading, Bitcoin’s dominance using the volume-weighted method is a staggering 92.4%.

Japanese Central Bank “in love” With Blockchain Technology

As inventors of fiber-optic communication, microprocessor, laptop and camera phones, among a myriad other technologies, Japan is widely regarded as the most progressive country in the world for developing and adopting revolutionary technologies. Obviously, you wouldn’t expect Japan to stifle blockchain innovation in the country.

Last week, an executive from Bank of Japan (BOJ) revealed that the country’s central bank is “in love” the technology behind virtual currencies and has no fear of capital outflows through new forms of money, “Because of fear of capital outflows, China regards all financial assets as enemies. But we are not worried about capital outflows. We are in love with the technology behind it (virtual currency) and interacting with the technical community.”

The country’s largest e-commerce platform, Rakuten, often dubbed “Japanese Amazon”, released a wallet last week, first for android devices and a few days later for iOS devices. Along with the wallet service, the app also provides feeless spot trading service for crypto assets.

Rakuten Wallet’s parent company, Rakuten Group, had been seeking regulatory clearance since March and has now obtained license to allow trading of three crypto assets – Bitcoin, Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash.

Customers of Rakuten will be able to deposit Japanese yen to their account and exchange it to any of the three crypto assets using the smartphone app. To encourage users to adopt crypto payments, no fee is charged on crypto to crypto transactions.

This is a major development in Japan, the equivalent of Amazon integrating crypto payments in the US, and shows how progressive Japan continues to set the benchmark for adoption of revolutionary technologies.

Craig Wright Is Found Guilty of Perjury to No One’s Surprise

Since we’re talking faketoshis this week, we might as well round it up with the Kleiman lawsuit involving Craig Wright.

Ira Kleiman, who is the brother of Wright’s erstwhile business partner, late Dave Kleiman, litigated Wright in February 2018 over embezzlement of 1.1 million bitcoins which were mined and jointly held by Wright and Dave Kleiman.

The lawsuit, which has rumbled on for 18 months, seems to have been all but settled. Reports emerged on Monday from courtroom eyewitnesses that the judge had ruled the case in favour of the Kleiman estate.

Wright was found guilty of perjury, falsifying documents and in contempt of court by Judge Bruce E. Reinhart, who rejected all of Wright’s testimony. It was also found that “Tulip Trust”, which was the trust created for holding the coins the pair had mined between 2009 and 2011, does not exist.

In his final ruling, Judge Reinhart awarded the Kleiman trust 50% of intellectual property rights and 50% of bitcoins mined before Dave Kleiman’s passing.

At least, Wright won’t be able to sue anyone that calls him a fraud for libel while he busies himself trying to cough up the 550,000 bitcoins which he likely never mined.

In the immortal words of Walter Scott, “Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!”

Trading Insights

It would be fair to suggest that August has been a pretty mundane month with a lot of sideways movement and relatively little volatility. That may not be a bad thing.

Bitcoin has already spent more days above 10000 than it did back in Dec ’17 to Jan ’18, which shows that it is comfortable at this level and doesn’t feel out of place. A necessary spell of consolidation following a steep upsurge is characteristic of a healthy, mature market.

Last week’s trading closed in red in a short body which indicates that sell pressure has relented once again at the key Fibonacci ratio of .38. This level, near 9400 has proven to be a formidable layer of support throughout the month. The resistance to break still remains 10800.

The weekly chart is showing bearish tendencies on multiple fronts for the first time in nearly six months. Although RSI remains healthy in the bull market zone, there are rumblings which indicate a slide could be imminent. Whether or not it comes to pass, 9400 still remains the support zone to defend for the time being.

Weekly MACD saw bearish convergence this week, with ADX holding high and DI likewise evincing bearish convergence.

On the Daily chart, which has been largely bearish since last week, RSI has formed an ominous M-top formation just above lower bull cycle level of 40.

After showing some signs of mounting a revival, Ethereum has gone back to treading water, struggling to break above 0.019 BTC. Ethereum Classic (ETC) was the best performer among leading altcoins last week, gaining nearly 30%, rising from 55k sats to 70k sats.

Revisiting Hal Finney Bitcoin price prediction of $10M

… from the silver pile. Time sure flies, and before we knew it, Satoshi Nakamoto’s Genesis block was shedding Bitcoins at fifty dollars ($50) apiece.

Bitcoin is the new gold as once the legendary Hal Finney Bitcoin price prediction claimed in the year 2009. Bitcoin (BTC) has been hailed as the king of the cryptos for quite some time due to its dominant nature in the market, and while that wasn’t enough to make a statement, we have reminiscent proof that Bitcoin isn’t just your average day crypto from the silver pile.

Time sure flies, and before we knew it, Satoshi Nakamoto’s Genesis block was shedding Bitcoins at fifty dollars ($50) apiece.

The Hal Finney Bitcoin price prediction

Frankly, it was ‘a’ piece- and the next thing we hear after a few weeks of crypto-grinding (when everyone was starting to thinks of using their home rights to cash in some Bitcoin), Hal Finney bombed us on twitter claiming that Bitcoin will be ten million dollars (10,000,000) per coin, a decade from January 2019.

You think bitcoin twitter is bullish? Hal Finney (@halfin), was calculating a bitcoin price of $10,000,000 per coin just ONE WEEK after the the genesis block on January 3rd, 2009.

Absolute legend.

— Dr. Bitcoin, M.D. (@DrBitcoinMD) August 23, 2019

Hal Finney Bitcoin price prediction was based on the idea that Bitcoin would be the asset to dominate the rest. It would become so powerful in the future that other ‘things’ won’t be quite as much necessary.

The excerpt (above) was dug up by crypto twitter on which Hal’s prediction is stated. What’s more, fun is the fact that cryptocurrency was in its infancy at that time running on the Bitcoin version 0.1.

Speaking of infancy, that is what troubled Hal Finney. His theory extended to human psychology regarding our behavior towards change and the unknown. His answer on the matter was that like any currency, and it will take some getting used to.

People should be given time and be made to understand what they’re dealing with. It wouldn’t behoove us as intellectual beings to just accept the fact that in an uncertain future, these coins will have a value other than zero.

So his game-plan chalks out like this: Hal Finney estimated the household wealth around the globe which summed up to be one hundred to three hundred trillion ($100T-$300T) dollars. He then allocated the twenty million BTC at that time – each coin a value of ten (10) million dollars.

Thus the remaining one million (1M) coins were still a gamble from the twenty-one (21) million coin count- Satoshi had plans.

A lot of people are using Bitcoins while a lot more are holding it in their wallets. Yet that hasn’t stopped this crypto-coin from being used as a transaction medium for banks to educational institutions and day to day transactions.

Hal Finney was visionary, but his vision wasn’t scary, it was outright revolutionary. Unlike the ‘cyborgs will rule the earth theory’ he was more passionate about cryptography and thus had his first proof-of-work algorithm up and running in 2004.

He was there in 2009 when the outbreak happened. Sadly, he passed away in 2014, leaving behind a legacy that would be recalled time and time again.

Shocker: In 2009, Hal Finney Estimated Bitcoin To One Day Reach $10 Million

Many have argued that Hal Finney could be the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin. In fact, one of the contributors on the thread …
Bitcoin Likely to Soar Higher Despite Short Dip Below $5,500

For a long time, there have been lots of people coming up with their own predictions in regard to the future price of Bitcoin. People like Tim Draper and Tom Lee has estimated Bitcoin to hit above $100k in the coming years.

They’ve also predicted that Bitcoin will soon achieve mass adoption and attract more institutional investment. However, there’s one person who seems to have lived way ahead of his time. His name is Harold Thomas Finney.

In a now-viral screenshot of his posts from way back in 2009, Hal Finney seems to have had great optimism about the future of Bitcoin. Just a week after the Bitcoin network went live in January 3rd, 2009, Hal Finney predicted that the crypto would one day be valued at a cool $10 million apiece.

Introducing The “Finney”

One of the contributors in the tweet sought to kick-start a move to name 10,000 Satoshis a ”Finney.” Of course, this move can easily succeed if more effort is put to popularize it, and many people would get on board especially given Hal Finney’s respected status within the Bitcoin community.

Could He Be The Creator?

Many have argued that Hal Finney could be the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin. In fact, one of the contributors on the thread claimed that Finney is Satoshi. The user argued that Finney must have had the idea about Bitcoin way longer than a week before he made his prediction.

Indeed, from a logical point of view, it’s hard to believe that someone who knew about Bitcoin for no longer than a week after its introduction could have known so much about it and even have the audacity to make predictions running into decades.

Was Harold Finney really Satoshi?

Immortality, Cryogenics and UBI: How The Crypto Rich Influence Science

Moreover, Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin also donated $2.4 million to SENS in 2018 and another $350,000 in January 2019. The regenerative …

The rise of cryptocurrency is changing the philanthropic world by causing the redistribution of wealth from old money to visionary innovators and early tech adopters. The new crypto rich invest their donations by supporting scientific research in groundbreaking fields that may one day enable humanity to cure aging, reverse death and completely change the relationship between work and income.

The Cryptorati Want to Defeat Aging

Examining the record of donations made by the crypto rich reveals a pattern of support for goals that others may feel belong in the pages of science fiction novels. Having benefited greatly from recognizing the potential of peer to peer electronic cash earlier than the masses, it is no surprise that they have great optimism in the power of technology to radically change our lives for the better.

One of the main benefactors of this type of donation focus is the SENS Research Foundation located in Mountain View, California. The non-profit SENS (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence) defines its goal as working to develop, promote, and ensure widespread access to therapies that cure and prevent the diseases and disabilities of aging. Unlike the traditional medical approach of only treating or managing old age problems as they kick in, this approach focuses on comprehensively repairing the damage that builds up in our bodies over time, thus mitigating the aging process as much as possible.

Immortality, Cryogenics and UBI: How The Crypto Rich Influence Science

In the early 2000s, Michael Novogratz donated to the research organization and the Pineapple Fund gave SENS $2 million in BTC last year. Moreover, Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin also donated $2.4 million to SENS in 2018 and another $350,000 in January 2019. The regenerative medical therapy organization also raised another $4.1 million in cryptocurrencies last year in addition to the Pineapple Fund donation.

The chief science officer of SENS, British biogerontologist Aubrey de Grey, talked about the relationship between his venture and crypto proponents last year and detailed that many have donated to the research organization. “I’m not in this to do science for the sake of doing science,” de Grey explained. “I’m in it for the ultimate goal.” He further revealed that a few anonymous donors have given SENS $1 million each and other cryptocurrency personalities are also long-term donors of the foundation.

The Cryogenics Connection

Another main benefactor of donations made by crypto personalities is the Alcor Life Extension Foundation. This nonprofit based in Scottsdale, Arizona, advocates for, researches, and performs cryonics. This entails the freezing of the whole human corpse or just the brain in liquid nitrogen after legal death, with hopes of resurrecting the individual when the requisite technology is developed in the future.

According to reports, a number of crypto rich have anonymously donated to Alcor’s cryonics research. The top connection between the field and cryptocurrency is that Alcor might be preserving the body of a man some believe to be Satoshi Nakamoto himself. Hal Finney is the computer scientist who received the very first bitcoin transaction and helped get the network up and running during its first year. On Aug. 28, 2014, Finney’s body was taken to an Alcor facility soon after his death and underwent the cryogenic process. In May 2018 the foundation announced that cryptocurrency enthusiast Brad Armstrong gave it a $5 million research contribution, being held in the name of the “Hal Finney Cryonics Research Fund”.

Immortality, Cryogenics and UBI: How The Crypto Rich Influence Science

Another connection between cryptocurrency and cryogenics is that computer scientist Ralph Merkle, known for creating cryptographic hashing, the Merkle tree and other inventions, is also a researcher and advocate of cryonics. He reportedly knows a few crypto people who have donated to cryonics and also helped raise funds for Alcor.

Universal Basic Income and MDMA

A more economic research topic, but one that could have drastic implications for human society no less than curing aging or cheating death, is Universal Basic Income. UBI is one of the hottest economic debate topics of the last couple of years, talked about as a possible solution to technological unemployment, preventing humans from falling behind once robots take over all the jobs. The idea has even gained support from various politicians around the world recently such as U.S. democratic candidate Andrew Yang.

Basically the UBI plan is to provide everyone with a stipend so that they can live their lives without worrying about making enough money from work just to survive. This raises several questions as it goes against how many believe the world should function and it will also be an unprecedented experiment in the human condition. The Pineapple Fund made a $5 million donation to the organization Give Directly in 2017 to sponsor cash transfers to people living in extreme poverty in Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda where it is possible to test the UBI concept before it’s implemented in more expensive regions of the world. The Pineapple Fund has also donated more than $1 million to aid in the research of using MDMA as a treatment for PTSD.

Crypto rich and well-known community personalities have of course donated to other causes than the above mentioned scientific research projects. To list a few examples, Justin Sun gave $3 million to the Binance Charity Foundation, $250,000 to the ALS association and over $4.5 million to Glide which aims to alleviate poverty. John McAfee donated a 27-foot boat worth $1.1 million to the Belize Coast Guard. The CEO of Coinbase, Brian Armstrong, even signed the Giving Pledge, the drive started by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates for rich people to give away the majority of their wealth instead of leaving it to their heirs.
