Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
Bitcoin was officially released in January 2009. Even though more than ten years have already past, no one knows who Satoshi Nakamoto is. There are quite a lot of assumptions regarding his origin. Someone thinks he is Japanese due to the name choice, while others suppose that he also might be from England due to his perfect language skills. People even were trying to identify Bitcoin founder by tracking the time of his published posts, but instead, it created more questions than gave reasonable answers.
At the end of 2010, Satoshi handed control over the Bitcoin code depositary to Gavin Andresen. Later in spring 2011, Bitcoin creator came back to leave the last message saying that the coin is in good hands and that he has moved on to different things. No one has ever heard about him after that.
Maybe we will finally know who Satoshi Nakamoto is? We’ll see. Would you ask a question to Bitcoin founder?
