Whoever he is, he has 6.4 billion in bitcoin still. If he ever starts spending it that might be a chance to figure out who it is.
Of all these theories, the idea that Bitcoin was created by a government is the least plausible. Why would they it goes against everything governments stand for.
whoever it was, it’s pretty amazing that the whole thing works and hasn’t needed multiple hard forks to adapt to its massive scale and complexity
Mr. T – biggest star of the 80’s then just disappears?? I don’t think so.
What the article above from @Velcro says
Having worked closely, if only online, with Nakamoto, Garzik thinks he knows who it may be.
Speaking of the late Floridian Dave Kleiman, he said that this “this gentleman was self taught” and that it “matches his coding style.” He went on to add that:
…the Bitcoin coder was someone who was very, very smart, but not a
classically trained software engineer…
Kleiman, who was wheelchair-bound after a motorcycle accident, died in 2013 after suffering an MRSA infection. He was a former Florida sheriff’s officer who became a computer forensics expert. Notably, Australian Craig Wright, who claimed he was Nakamoto in 2016, is being sued by the Kleiman’s estate for allegedly stealing billions of dollars worth of Bitcoin and intellectual property from Kleiman.
