Satoshi Nakamoto is a name in the Bitcoin world that has yet to reveal himself. It might be a person or a group of people. No one knows. But here comes Elon Musk, of all people to show who he is.
So, Elon Musk has been right about most things in his life. He has led the way in the whole Tesla thing. You’ve probably heard of it.😉 Well, Tesla has electric cars and a slew of merchandise from tee-shirts to coffee mugs. That’s him. Anyway, he believes he knows who the guy is behind Bitcoin, and you will learn the person’s name right after this short commercial break.
“He seems to be the one more responsible for the ideas behind bitcoin than anyone else,” Elon Musk
Nick Szabo said that he is explicitly not Satoshi Nakamoto from day one. The funny thing about that is that it has led Elon Musk to believe that he is. But for several reasons.
In 2014, a team of researchers looked at the work of Satoshi Nakamoto. After studying those words very profoundly, they explored several others. Of them, they found that Nick Szabo’s work was remarkably similar.
As an English major myself, I can relate to their studies. When one writer ventures into writing many different manuscripts, whitepapers, technical manuals, or even journal entries, they leave a footprint. They use the exact words to describe what they are talking about or use the same expressions.
Those researchers feel, and Elon Musk feels that Nick Szabo’s words are a perfect match for Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin itself. If you’re not up to date on who Satoshi Nakamoto is, we have a plethora of material for you to read through. But the breakdown is that he created Bitcoin, owns most likely upwards of about 1 million of the coin himself, which would make him one of the wealthiest people in the world. But he lives in obscurity, and there is little reason to wonder why.
