The Many Facts Pointing to Dorian Nakamoto Being Satoshi ...

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

Here are the most popular versions of Nakamoto’s identity — from the craziest to the most believable ones.
On May 20, 2020, there was stated the transaction of 50 BTC that were mined in February 2009. Then, only a few people were engaged in its mining, with Hell Finney among them, known as the first cryptocurrency recipient, and the Bitcoin creator — Satoshi Nakamoto.
The community believes that Satoshi Nakamoto is not the name of a real person. Some offered a trivial explanation: a quartet of technology companies SAmsung, TOSHIba, NAKAmichi, and MOTOrola can form the name Satoshi Nakamoto, but it seems far-fetched. There were no women among the candidates for the post of Nakamoto. The authors of all investigations are convinced that it is either a man or a group of people (most likely men).

Dorian Nakamoto

In 2014, Newsweek published perhaps the most high-profile investigation about the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. Journalists found an American of Japanese descent named Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto in California. He was 64 years old and flatly refused to communicate with the press. The person living in California was indeed a mathematician, physicist, and computer engineer and in the past worked on classified projects by private corporations and the US Department of Defense. However, Dorian Nakamoto completely denied the rumors and added that the hype around him caused stress for his family and asked to respect his privacy. A day after the publication of the article, Satoshi Nakamoto's profile on the P2PFoundation website came to life to write only one message: "I'm not Dorian Nakamoto."

Faketoshi

Another “Satoshi moment” happened at the end of 2015, when the Bitcoin developers received a letter from [email protected], which was previously associated with Nakamoto. A letter with the subject line “Not this again” said: “I’m not Craig Wright”.Craig Steven Wright, an Australian entrepreneur, and scientist is probably the only person in the world who does not refute his involvement in Bitcoin but proves to everyone around that he created the first cryptocurrency in 2008. Wright affirmed that he was Satoshi Nakamoto. According to him, he left the project because of shame — he accused well-known developers and community representatives of striving to distribute child pornography and drugs using Bitcoin. Somehow, the version of Craig Wright, known as Faketoshi, looks rather dubious. The Wired published an article in which journalists cited several facts that contradict this version. In particular, it was said that two PGP keys, which were believed to prove that Satoshi and Craig Wright are one person, were created retroactively. It was also mentioned that Dr. Wright may not be a doctor at all: Charles Sturt University denied that he ever awarded him the title of doctor.

Nick Szabo

Probably the most plausible version is the creation of Bitcoin by cryptographer Nick Szabo. Back in 2013, researcher Sky Gray named the reasons why he believes that Szabo is Satoshi:
In the 1990s, Szabo also created the concept of smart contracts, which were implemented only after 10 years. Thus, if he was Satoshi, the community would conclude that this is quite logical, but Szabo denies everything.

Elon Musk

This theory that Elon Musk is the developer of Bitcoin has no documentary evidence, but it does have many indirect features. For example, Elon Musk is a well-known innovator, and therefore the idea of creating Bitcoin, which in the future will become the only world currency, could well have crossed his mind. Or at least he might have just created cryptocurrency in order to get the better of banks and government and make free finances for ordinary people. As we know very well, Elon Musk is an excellent programmer, and he is able to write code in the same programming language in which Bitcoin is written. Naturally, Elon Mask himself denies his involvement in the creation of bitcoin. However, everyone who was nominated for the role of Satoshi does this. Of course, if you do not take into account Faketoshi Craig Wright.

John McAfee knows who hides under this nickname

On May 3, 2020, a cryptoveteran and fugitive US presidential candidate John McAfee gave an exclusive interview to Cointelegraph. McAfee believes that linguistic analysis of technical documentation, also known as stylometry, will help to reveal Satoshi to an attentive reader. In fact, this is all you need to remove the personality of Satoshi Nakamoto from the secret list. He mentioned that only five percent of the population put two spaces after the period. According to him, if you buy a program for determining authorship for $200 and upload Bitcoin White Paper, you will understand who that mystical Satoshi is with 99% probability.

Great mystery

As long as secrets exist, people will try to uncover them. If Bitcoin really becomes a new form of money, then the question of the creator will be more relevant than ever. Who was this man and what were his motives? Why do we not know anything about him, although he might have become fabulously rich?
It is not known whether the real name of Satoshi Nakamoto will ever be known to the community, but it is known for sure that Bitcoin works regardless of whether this happens or not.
To some extent, the story of Satoshi is the best thing that happened with the first cryptocurrency in its entire history, because then the problem of the emergence of a personality cult was solved by itself.

Update 1: Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto

First of all, I want to thank the Bitcoin community for the kindness shown and expressed for my brother. My heart is touched. Thank you.
I just talked to my brother with my dragon at my side for the first time in at least 2-3 weeks since this Newsweek episode turned our lives upside down, all lines of communications were cut. Majority of the world was not told that Leah was intruding upon people's privacy with zeal weeks before the launching of Newsweek hardcopies. It was agreed that none of "us" would talk. Make-Believe Journalism was never in our minds until the announcement by Newsweek.
I wanted to share with those who are interested some of the human interest side.
What is endearing about my brother are "things". Social concepts and personal thoughts that would be of a concern to a majority of the populace is not highlighted in my brother character. How would I word this? Dorian is a technically brilliant person who is more comfortable in an old crumpled T-shirt, cargo short pants, white crew socks and doesn't frequent mirrors at times to comb his hair. Leah McGraw Goodman got that right. The hair? Maybe a little more infrequent. These observations are not just mine. Over the decades, his friends who are and were executives in the aerospace firms and software engineering companies have told me the same things. I don't think I am going on the limb when I say that I wear 1/2 size white crew socks, wear Hawaiian shirts a lot and even collect vintage ones at that. That I can spend hours behind flat screens and not shave or comb my hair over the weekend. Since our Lexie, four footed member of the family passed on, I too am out less frequently due to no walks twice a day. If I am a geek, then so be it. I have seen my brother do exactly what he does before there was a culture of computer nerds or geeks, the terms weren't even concepts at the time. Besides, it is anti-fashion statement expressing freedom from fashion tyranny.
We talked and at no time did he express or mentioned what the Huffington Post listed as the #1 thing that should be taken from the Newsweek's story written by Leah McGraw Goodman. The number one thing is that his younger brother called him to be an asshole. In usual form, I know that Dorian forgave me and moved on just before we reconnected. I wish that I can have that kind of character to do exactly that in my life. In my life, I tend to remember stuff and not forget even though I have learned over time that I have the ability to forgive people. It's part of my life I have to continuously work on.
OK, here it is. Does anyone know or can ponder to guess why the AP reporter was given the exclusive? You guys all saw the video and I'm thinking some saw it over and over for details.
Dorian opened the front door and he announced who would buy him lunch. The photographers of all nationalities swarmed in pushing each other flashing cameras and video cameras spearheading the way. No one spoke out but a guy way in back near the end of the low cinder block wall yelled out, "I'll buy lunch". Dorian said that the AP reporter was the only reporter to make an offer to buy lunch while all the others kept on taking pictures and taking videos. That is how the AP reporter was chosen as told by Dorian. Now you all know before any other media.
Dorian had to take a short break. I am thinking things were hurting. I asked him what is a "hair ball". He said that he doesn't know exactly what a "hair ball" is and that it is probably what was called a spaghetti program long ago. Not well structured and has a lot of re-writing to do. In the short time he personally glanced at the write ups on the net regarding Bitcoin, he told me that the creator is "brilliant" but a poor code writer and that he could have done better with virtually no errors.
With that, I am now convinced that my brother is not the "Satoshi Nakamoto". Can he do it? I think, Yes. I believe it and what's more important is that he is among a very select few of people of "extreme interest" as it was told to me by authority on Friday.
I can see where Leah McGrath Goodman and the owner of Newsweek decided to throw Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto under the bus with a 20 to 30% probability that he is and dismiss the 70 to 80% that he isn't. Excuse me but Leah McGrath Goodman is such an 80's name. I am going to do her a favor and call her LMG. She is lucky that I don't call her LSMFT.
My stuff. Calculations made for me by BCG from data publicly available sources that there are only 7 people in the world. The initial calculation went something like this. Overall demographics ie: people with computer programming knowledge, coding skills, distributed network knowledge including swarming techniques, Polish notation programming...right down to having lots of personal time to write code, disregard for family or pursuit of sex that would take time and energy, highly disciplined, focused beyond the normal, obsessive personality or just plain as BC put it "crazy" and highly anti-government. And the final kicker of the name Satoshi Nakamoto that is given weight. By the way, Satoshi is not an unusual name in Japan. The name Nakamoto is from what BCG reported, originates from the Hiroshima area as most "moto" or "source" translated phonetically is defined. I have to state that BCG is tied to the pharm medical world with statistical demographic mainframes with various programs with claims of accuracy audited by the FDA.
I don't know specifically but I do know that I.Frank Nakamoto was born in Hiroshima before coming to America and then to later be thrown into an American concentration camps as a political prisoner in Perris, California for being a successful and outspoken businessman. I have been visiting his grave over many years at the Evergreen Cemetary in Boyle Heights.
What calculations told me is that when it comes to human beings and their unique characters, profiling is a loose and irresponsible pseudo name for WTF, it doesn't work. All the professional behavioral analysts that Newsweek may have hired, their obviously under qualified and desperate legal advisers if they hired some, loosely expert statisticians and financial advisers didn't mean crap when the end result is that they are wrong.
It's late and I have to get on with my reality. Once again, many thanks to the one and only forum that is a true community. Thanks for allowing me to vent. Thanks for the many posts of support. For those who a unsure, my sincerest apologies. My intention is to support my brother who supported me as a older brother is supposed to do. As the oldest brother, he, in Japanese and many other cultures including America, becomes the head of the family who takes care of the parent or parents. He is suffering right now and all I can do for this time being is figure out a ways to help from a distance due to irresponsible journalism operating at its finest. Instead of energies to minimize the 2nd Amendment we should spend time minimizing Freedom of the Press? I am not a Libertarian. I am a Conservative who thinks most of the Conservatives are Liberals.
Andreas, my sincerest thanks. If we meet in the future, one minute, who is going to buy Dorian lunch? I will buy my brother's and you a lunch.
Yalla, bye.
As always, I authorize nakamotodragon to answer questions in my absence.

Who Is Satoshi Nakamoto?

Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are the new trend market today almost everywhere people are talking about Bitcoins, particularly with examples that someone has made millions in only a couple of years by smartly investing in bitcoins. It is decentralized, which means it isn't controlled nor backed up by any administration, nation, or an individual element. Unlike traditional currencies, such as dollars and euros, bitcoins are issued and managed without any regulation from any central government. Thus, it is more resistant to inflation and corruption. A Bitcoin derives its value basically from the demand and usage of bitcoins, similar to a stock. With this kind of innovation, everyone is thinking about how Bitcoin started and who created this kind of technology? The name "bitcoin.org" was registered on 18 August 2008. While on the 31st of October 2008, a link to a paper authored by Satoshi Nakamoto titled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System was posted to a cryptography mailing list. Nakamoto implemented the bitcoin software as an open-source code and released it in January 2009. Then on the 3rd of January 2009, the bitcoin network was created when Nakamoto mined the first block of the chain, known as the genesis block. Embedded in the coinbase of this block was the text "The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks". This note references a headline published by The Times and has been interpreted as both timestamp and comment on the instability caused by fractional-reserve banking.
With all these groundbreaking accomplishments of bitcoin, Nakamoto's identity remains unknown. Several speculations and theories were made, but all of these speculations don't have concrete evidence to prove their speculations are true. One of the first and most easily dismissed claims was that of Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto. The 68-year-old Japanese-American living in California, was identified in a 2014 Newsweek article as the elusive Bitcoin creator. Despite his work as a systems engineer on classified US defense projects as well as his background in digital finance, the homonymous nature was sheer coincidence. While one of the most intriguing speculations is the announcement made by Craig Wright that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. As said to this article, Craig Wright is an Australian academic who was brought into the spotlight of Satoshi when Wired Magazine published an article in 2015 claiming Wright “either invented Bitcoin, or is a brilliant hoaxer”. Shortly after the Wired article was released, Gizmodo released their article stating they were contacted by a supposed hacker that had gained access to Wright’s emails and claimed that Satoshi Nakamoto was a pseudonym for Wright and his accomplice, the deceased cybersecurity expert David Kleinmen. However, when asked to provide evidence a list of addresses associated with the Tulip Trust, said to hold almost 1 million BTC the documents were highly redacted and shed little light on the true nature of Wrights involvement in the birth of Bitcoin. Still the story is not yet and finish and there is still no enough evidence in this proclamation of Craig Wright. The man behind the empire of bitcoin is still unknown, but it'll just be a matter of time till someone claims that he, she or they, are the people behind Bitcoin.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto and where is he now?

Where does Satoshi Nakamoto come from?

Any person that has been doing some research on cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin, probably has heard of this name before. Satoshi Nakamoto. Who is this mysterious man and why does no one know who he is? This goes back to October 2008, when an unknown user by the name of Nakamoto sent out the whitepaper for Bitcoin, a peer-to-peer Electronic Cash System to a cryptographic newsletter. After the announcement had been done and the manifesto describing the revolution Nakamoto was aiming to start, in January the software was released. He was the person to mine the Genesis block encrypted with the headline of the New York Times of that day. Nakamoto has stopped using his Bitcoin since mid-January 2009, with nowadays having Bitcoin that is worth over 19 Billion dollars. Unclear is to say if Nakamoto still has access to these coins. If so, he could just be the 44th richest person in the world. The problem is, nobody knows who Satoshi Nakamoto is. Besides a couple of posts on the forums about Bitcoin, there has been no personal messages or activities shared by Nakamoto.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

There are many different stories including many different answers to these questions. Let’s have a look at some of the most known speculations out there and see why they might be or might not be Satoshi, the creator of Bitcoin.
Hal Finney This man was one of the pioneers in the field of cryptography prior to Bitcoin being created. Back in 2009, Finney was the first person to ever do a Bitcoin transaction and besides Nakamoto himself, he was the only person to use the software. Many analysts have compared Finney’s writing to the published work of Nakamoto and found many similar techniques and styles. Years later, Finney denied all the claims as he showed correspondence between him and Nakamoto pointing at someone else being Nakamoto. Finney has died in 2014 and his family chose to freeze his body.
Dorian Nakamoto This man is the only person who actually has the same name. Dorian Nakamoto has the birth name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’, but this is not the only evidence. An article published in Newsweek showed an interview with Dorian confirming his affiliation with Bitcoin and confirming being the founder. The following interview, however, implicated Dorian had never heard of any virtual currency named Bitcoin nor does he have had anything to do with it. After the interview, the account used by Satoshi five years ago weirdly posted ‘I am not Dorian Nakamoto’. Whether this was the real Satoshi or a hacker, is unclear.
Craight Wright Probably the most known example is ‘Faketoshi’, better known as Craight Wright. Anyone that has known Bitcoin for a while knows it’s decentralized and the power is that no one is in charge. Anyone associated with Bitcoin confirms the identity of Nakamoto has to remain anonymous, except for Craig Wright. Ever since 2015, Wright has been claiming to be the inventor of Bitcoin. The fact that he has been affiliated with the project for years is clear, but being the inventor is false as confirmed by many Bitcoin pioneers. A couple weeks ago, the court has officially stated Craight Wright could not prove to be the inventor of Bitcoin.
In reality, nobody knows the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. The only way to confirm this is bringing all the old accounts back to live, moving the coins in the wallet that has been idle since 2009 and confirming the identity. This can be tough, Nakamoto might not even be alive nowadays. The beauty is, he does not have to be alive for Bitcoin to survive!

11 Years Ago Today Satoshi Nakamoto Published the Bitcoin White Paper

11 Years Ago Today Satoshi Nakamoto Published the Bitcoin White Paper
https://preview.redd.it/comrfanlpuv31.png?width=2000&format=png&auto=webp&s=02324c6250b7dc4aa34313b5fe20ca8b9513dd92
Today, Oct. 31, marks eleven years since the publication of the Bitcoin white paper by the still-mysterious person or group pseudonymously identified as Satoshi Nakamoto.

A revolutionary text

Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System — published on Oct. 31, 2008 — outlined a tamper-proof, decentralized peer-to-peer protocol that could track and verify digital transactions, prevent double-spending and generate a transparent record for anyone to inspect in nearly real-time.
The protocol represented a cryptographically-secured system — based on a Proof-of-Work algorithm — in which Bitcoins (BTC) are “mined” for a reward by individual nodes and then verified by other nodes in a decentralized network.
This system contained the possibility of overcoming the need for intermediaries such as banks and financial institutions to facilitate and audit transactions — a major disruption to a siloed, monopolized field of centralized financial power.

304033233% all-time-price appreciation

Eleven years on, Bitcoin is consistently setting new records for its network hash rate — a measure of the overall computing power involved in validating transactions on the blockchain at any given time.
More power and participation establishes greater network security and attests to widespread recognition of the profitability potential of Bitcoin mining.
As of the middle of this month, network data revealed that since the creation of the very first block on the Bitcoin blockchain on Jan 3, 2009 — known in more technical language as its “genesis block” — miners have received combined revenue of just under $15 billion.
The figure includes both block rewards — “new” bitcoins paid to miners for validating a block of transactions — as well as transaction fees, which broke the $1 billion mark this week.
Bitcoin’s first-ever recorded trading price was noted on Mar. 17, 2010 — on the now-defunct trading platform bitcoinmarket.com, at a value of $0.003.
The cryptocurrency’s appreciation thus stands at a staggering 304033233% as of press time, with Bitcoin currently trading at $9,120.
As of this August, 85% of Bitcoin’s supply in circulation had been mined — leaving just 3.15 million new coins for the future.
Eleven years on, the mystery enshrouding the white paper’s author remains as impenetrable as ever. Those both within and without the crypto community began attempting to determine Nakamoto’s identity as early as October 2011, just a few months after the mysterious figure first went silent.

Who Is The CEO Of Bitcoin?

Bitcoin was conceived as a communal project. Designed as an open-source software and released to the public in 2009, Bitcoin was conceived with openness in mind. Functioning on an open ledger that is accessible to the public, Bitcoin is an open-source project. Bitcoin works on a vast public ledger, also called a blockchain, where all confirmed transactions are included as so-called blocks. As each block enters the system, it is broadcast to the peer-to-peer computer network of users for validation. In this way, all users are aware of each transaction, which prevents stealing and double-spending, where someone spends the same currency twice. The process also helps blockchain users trust the system. But despite the transparency of the platform, one grand mystery remains unsolved: Who created bitcoin and who exactly is Satoshi Nakamoto? The origin of "bitcoin.org" was registered on 18 August 2008. While on the 31st of October 2008, a link to a paper authored by Satoshi Nakamoto titled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System was posted to a cryptography mailing list.
Then on the 3rd of January 2009, the bitcoin network was created when Nakamoto mined the first block of the chain, known as the genesis block. Within that day until now the information about Satoshi Nakamoto is still unknown. That's why speculations emerge on who could Satoshi Nakamoto possibly be. As said to this article, One of the first and most easily dismissed claims was that of Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto. The 68-year-old Japanese-American living in California, was identified in a 2014 Newsweek article as the elusive Bitcoin creator. Still, this is just coincidence and admits that he's not the creator of bitcoin. The next person on the list is a bit more plausible. A cryptography enthusiast as well as a pioneer in decentralized digital currency, Nick Szabo developed a precursor to Bitcoin, BitGold. But he said that he get it a lot and he's getting used to it but his not Satoshi. This brings us to the latest, and most interesting, if not most compelling suspect: Craig Wright. For he claims that he is Satoshi Nakamoto but when asked to prove his statements he presented vague pieces of evidence. Wired Magazine published an article in 2015 claiming Wright “either invented Bitcoin, or is a brilliant hoaxer”. Shortly after the Wired article was released, Gizmodo released their article stating they were contacted by a supposed hacker that had gained access to Wright’s emails and claimed that Satoshi Nakamoto was a pseudonym for Wright and his accomplice. Still, this is not enough evidence to prove what he is claiming. Significantly, Satoshi Nakamoto becomes a large character in the cryptosphere and bitcoin that's why it's not surprising that some would like to take the spotlight and claim that they are Satoshi.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto and where is he now?

Where does Satoshi Nakamoto come from?

Any person that has been doing some research on cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin, probably has heard of this name before. Satoshi Nakamoto. Who is this mysterious man and why does no one know who he is? This goes back to October 2008, when an unknown user by the name of Nakamoto sent out the whitepaper for Bitcoin, a peer-to-peer Electronic Cash System to a cryptographic newsletter. After the announcement had been done and the manifesto describing the revolution Nakamoto was aiming to start, in January the software was released. He was the person to mine the Genesis block encrypted with the headline of the New York Times of that day. Nakamoto has stopped using his Bitcoin since mid-January 2009, with nowadays having Bitcoin that is worth over 19 Billion dollars. Unclear is to say if Nakamoto still has access to these coins. If so, he could just be the 44th richest person in the world. The problem is, nobody knows who Satoshi Nakamoto is. Besides a couple of posts on the forums about Bitcoin, there has been no personal messages or activities shared by Nakamoto.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

There are many different stories including many different answers to these questions. Let’s have a look at some of the most known speculations out there and see why they might be or might not be Satoshi, the creator of Bitcoin.
Hal Finney This man was one of the pioneers in the field of cryptography prior to Bitcoin being created. Back in 2009, Finney was the first person to ever do a Bitcoin transaction and besides Nakamoto himself, he was the only person to use the software. Many analysts have compared Finney’s writing to the published work of Nakamoto and found many similar techniques and styles. Years later, Finney denied all the claims as he showed correspondence between him and Nakamoto pointing at someone else being Nakamoto. Finney has died in 2014 and his family chose to freeze his body.
Dorian Nakamoto This man is the only person who actually has the same name. Dorian Nakamoto has the birth name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’, but this is not the only evidence. An article published in Newsweek showed an interview with Dorian confirming his affiliation with Bitcoin and confirming being the founder. The following interview, however, implicated Dorian had never heard of any virtual currency named Bitcoin nor does he have had anything to do with it. After the interview, the account used by Satoshi five years ago weirdly posted ‘I am not Dorian Nakamoto’. Whether this was the real Satoshi or a hacker, is unclear.
Craight Wright Probably the most known example is ‘Faketoshi’, better known as Craight Wright. Anyone that has known Bitcoin for a while knows it’s decentralized and the power is that no one is in charge. Anyone associated with Bitcoin confirms the identity of Nakamoto has to remain anonymous, except for Craig Wright. Ever since 2015, Wright has been claiming to be the inventor of Bitcoin. The fact that he has been affiliated with the project for years is clear, but being the inventor is false as confirmed by many Bitcoin pioneers. A couple weeks ago, the court has officially stated Craight Wright could not prove to be the inventor of Bitcoin.
In reality, nobody knows the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. The only way to confirm this is bringing all the old accounts back to live, moving the coins in the wallet that has been idle since 2009 and confirming the identity. This can be tough, Nakamoto might not even be alive nowadays. The beauty is, he does not have to be alive for Bitcoin to survive!

Bitcoin is a clandestine operation spearheaded by the NSA

20 days ago I posted about Bitcoin being brought back from the future, see here:
https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/cfodub/bitcoin_likely_wasnt_supposed_to_come_out_until/
Because of what happened in 2008 with the creditors being bailed out, it was apparent that as George Bush was leaving office, the bankers were going to go full rogue during Obama's tenure. Creditors have never been bailed out. If anything a debt jubilee happens, and debts are forgiven.
One single rogue NSA agent ("Satoshi Nakamoto") took it upon themselves to create a new financial paradigm. Bitcoin was likely finished in October the moment the whitepaper went out. But he had to wait until the right time to launch. Bitcoin was launched two weeks before Obama was to take office. George Bush was briefed, but it being his last two weeks, the administration (aka shadow government cabal) was too busy "transitioning" to Obama's cabinet, to pay it any meaningful heed. In theory the Bitcoin halvings would coincide with every new American presidential cycle. In practice and application, the early coins were mined faster, and shaved some time off of this collision. At present the halvings happen about six months before elections.
Satoshi Nakamoto probably witnessed all kinds of shenanigans (cough... cough... 9/11) during their George Bush era tenure, and went to great lengths to remain anonymous, after donning the Satoshi Nakamoto alias.
There really weren't that many people interested in Bitcoin early on, and because Peter Todd had helped him fix critical vulnerabilities, Satoshi left the project in his hands. Peter fucked up going to the CIA, he then double fucked up saying Craig Wright is Satoshi. That's why he can't sit with us.
But anyways the last alleged communication from Satoshi, was during the Dorian Nakamoto incident. It's my belief, that "Satoshi Nakamoto" is most definitely still alive, still working for the NSA, has a good heart, and is actually one of these decent human beings looking out for the masses. We need more Satoshi Nakamoto's working for intelligence agencies, because I don't know about you, but I'm sick and tired of being on the wrong side of poverty.
Bitcoin is a financial tool that can liberate our species from centuries of aristocratic rule. Prior to the Declaration of Independence, the world was run by Kings, Queens, and nobles. The Bitcoin whitepaper is the modern day equivalent. It's the divorce from central banking hegemony.
Guys we're so close to hyperbitcoinization. It's the black pill central bankers can't swallow, but the sweet digital nectar you and I can. We're going to build this thing out, ON OUR OWN. Bankers be damned.
By the time they do come around, they're going to come around in a big way. Think military-industrial-complex rogue funds budget, funneling into Bitcoin. It's SO important that you have strong hands. Instead of "selling", spend 1/10 of your Bitcoin every 10x, and continue stacking Satoshi until the next 10x, in this way you preserve your wealth, and return as little as possible to the supply. Supply is running out... Snag a decent stack before Mnuchin, or Abe, or Lagarde wise up, and print fiat for the exclusive purpose of buying up Bitcoin. Remember... these bankers are still rogue... They're capable of anything... They convinced the government to rob from your future... That's why Satoshi did what he had to do. HOPE is not a strategy. You have to apply yourself and recognize that Bitcoin is a once in a generation opportunity. With that knowledge you have to start planning for not only YOUR future, but the future of the one's that are coming after you die. WE are going to change the world, not with HOPE, but with direct application of the Bitcoin protocol. Preach the gospel of Bitcoin. Personal financial sovereignty is here, NOW!

The Creator Of Bitcoin; Who Is Satoshi Nakamoto?

The Creator Of Bitcoin; Who Is Satoshi Nakamoto?

Photo from https://www.cryptostache.com/2017/08/28/creator-bitcoin-satoshi-nakamoto/
Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? For those new to the cryptocurrency world, Satoshi Nakamoto is the creator of Bitcoin. In early 2009 "Satoshi" released the first version of the Bitcoin software and established the first blockchain. Satoshi Nakamoto is not the real name of the inventor, but rather a pseudonymous used to protect his actual identity. We have NO idea who the creator of Bitcoin actually is!

Satoshi Facts

  1. While the real inventor has been shrouded in mystery we have a lot of information and also a lot of "fake" Nakamoto's trying to use that information to prove their claim. Here is what we know to date:
  2. Nakamoto launched the Bitcoin software the beginning of 2009 & was the one who mined the first "Genesis Block".
  3. He was directly involved with the project making software updates directly until mid-2010 when he handed over the project and left.
  4. All communication between Satoshi and other developers working on early versions of Bitcoin was written in perfect English.
  5. Nakamoto originally claimed to be Japanese and born in 1975.
  6. Satoshi still holds the private keys for some for roughly 1 million Bitcoins which have not been touched since January 2009! At today's rate that makes him a billionaire 4 times over.
  7. Privacy was a trait that obviously Satoshi himself valued and also tried to incorporate into the Bitcoin protocol.
  8. Bitcoin.org was also created by Nakamoto as he established the Bitcoin network.
  9. Multiple people have been touted as the real Satoshi Nakamoto, but none of them have been able to fully prove it.
  10. There is a whole site dedicated to his works called the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute. You can read Satoshi's original whitepaper there.
  11. On March 7th, 2014 (after almost 4 years) Satoshi's inactive forum account posted "I am not Dorian Nakamoto.". In reference to a man from California that was singled out by media as being the real Satoshi.
When I first learned this history I was kind of blown away by the fact that the creator of Bitcoin was a true mystery. There have been many people who have thought they found Satoshi, only to be disappointed. There are also a lot of people who have tried to claim they are the infamous Satoshi and not one of them have been able to provide the definitive proof of transferring some of the original Bitcon's known to belong to Satoshi' himself and untouched for the 8 years.

Is It A Conspiracy?

Other theories include Satoshi Nakamoto really being a group of people and not an individual or that it's all a government conspiracy cleverly playing out. Who ever the real Satoshi Nakamoto is, he is out there somewhere... sitting on billions worth of Bitcoin and enjoying the show! Maybe he even has a sweet mustache just like me and is reading this post right now, who knows...

Philosophy of Satoshi

For now, Satoshi Nakamoto exists not as a man, but as an ideal. The type of ideal that can transform our entire way of thinking about value, privacy, and the power of peer to peer. Bitcoin was born from these ideals and (from my point of view) created to free the masses from the unethical and many times tyrannical behaviors of the global banking establishment. Long Live Satoshi Nakamoto!

After the interview, the account used by Satoshi five years ago weirdly posted ‘I am not Dorian Nakamoto’. Whether this was the real Satoshi or a hacker, is unclear.
Craight Wright Probably the most known example is ‘Faketoshi’, better known as Craight Wright. Anyone that has known Bitcoin for a while knows it’s decentralized and the power is that no one is in charge. Anyone associated with Bitcoin confirms the identity of Nakamoto has to remain anonymous, except for Craig Wright. Ever since 2015, Wright has been claiming to be the inventor of Bitcoin. The fact that he has been affiliated with the project for years is clear, but being the inventor is false as confirmed by many Bitcoin pioneers. A couple weeks ago, the court has officially stated Craight Wright could not prove to be the inventor of Bitcoin.
In reality, nobody knows the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. The only way to confirm this is bringing all the old accounts back to live, moving the coins in the wallet that has been idle since 2009 and confirming the identity. This can be tough, Nakamoto might not even be alive nowadays. The beauty is, he does not have to be alive for Bitcoin to survive!

A question to the NEM Dev’s The age of extinction. (Feel free to delete again Nem)

This will be a too long didn’t read for many but for the few enjoy.
I and my three friends were caught up in the age of extinction and were awarded 2 of 4 accounts when the NEM dev in charge couldn’t decide if we were 4 guys or 1 guy with sock puppets.
This was after providing all information and proof that was requested such as linked in accounts and Facebook accounts that were never verified (Ie never messaged) by the dev in addition to volunteering to provide any additional information that could prove definitively one way or the other that we were 4 guys. (an offer which was repeatedly ignored as can be seen in the below emails)
So the question, has the dev team ever considered actually bringing someone in to review the information in an unbiased manner to determine without a doubt that legitimate NEM supporters weren’t turfed? After all the accounts are all still sitting in the development fund so they are there, and the Nem tokens still do exist so they could be issued in order to ensure that the fair egalitarian thing is done.
In our case it came to a coin toss
Also my offer still stands we are willing to all prove that we are real live people who all went to university together who lived in residence ie the same home together and all went to Vegas together as well as any other evidence that you require to prove that you made a mistake.
Ps when are we getting the silver coins…. “original Nemians will get this”
For amusement sake I have included the bitcoin talk emails between my group patmast3r and makoto1337 so if you are all bored feel free to read and watch a little begging a little banter and what became a growing frustration. But if you do manage to read it all you will see that in the end offers of proof were ignored and that makoto1337 wasnt really sure. Oh and if a dev wants to actually read them in btt I would be happy to show them.
Now the facts:
Me and my friends provided all information that was requested of us. We provided linked in account and facebook accounts upon the dev teams request however no one was ever contacted ie messaged to verify if they were legitimate. We offered to provide any additional information that the dev team could think of to prove that we were legitimate. If we were sock puppets having survived the first few rounds of culling why didn’t we take the early tokens that were offered and run, why did we stick around for the additional rounds that the devs made clear were coming? Now to answer some questions that will be forth coming.
Why didn’t you guys bring this up before, we have tried however there has never really been a public forum in which I might get a legitimate answer and until recently did not use reddit as you can see from the age of my account. Why were all of your IP addresses different if you lived in the same place? The answer is that we all lived in the university residence (which we can prove) and we all ran vpn’s because we like a diverse range of Netflix. If you all had different IP’s how did they even associate your accounts and decide you were sock puppets, well we all went for a trip to Vegas to celebrate convocation from University and while we were there we checked on NEM (which we can prove there are picture) Why were your bitcoin talk accounts so new, back then who’s wernt? In order to participate in NEM you needed a BTT account so we signed up for them. Why were to login so far apart and at times one after the other, because I got the guys into NEM and was the driving force prodding them along. If you guys weren’t a sock puppet why didn’t you fight harder?? I did I asked the man in charge and he made his decision so what could I possibly do? Why did you guys take the two accounts in the end instead of holding out. Well when you get fleeced and you get the option of keeping half of your money or none of it you take half. You guys are just a couple of NEM losers looking to cash in now and probably have nothing to do with NEM anymore. Actually after we divided the accounts I was tasked not so long ago with cashing it out, I also still trade a little under half a million in NEM coins on a regular basis. Squibbels

Hello Makoto
I will keep this short as I imagine you are a busy man these days. I am emailing on behalf of myself and three of my buddies J, J and G as we figured that it was best to just send one message and let you decide on a course of action rather than to send four separate messages saying more or less the same thing, however if you would like we can each send you one.
The situation is this, our four accounts have been flagged as sock puppets I am guessing because we are roommates and have moved all accounts to one machine, we didnt realize that this would cause an issue. So my question is what can we do and what do you need from us to prove that without a doubt that these account belong to four separate individuals. If you need we can even send a scanned copy of our driver’s licenses to prove that these belong to four separate individuals.
I convinced my three friends to join Nem because it looked like it could be a fun coin and I came across it when I was getting into mining and attempting to figure out config files for cards.
Anyways I have helped them along the way with figuring out bitcoin clients and the Nem client and purchasing their stakes and so on. One guy knows what he is doing more or less when it comes to this type of thing and the other two don’t really know that much. Basically we are their IT support in most things computer related.....
Initially they were eager to learn however they did not expect the launch to take as long as it has even though I warned them beforehand that it may take a long time and that it might not even launch at all. As a result they have mostly lost interest until the launch and have left account maintenance to me and spend most of their Nem time making fun of me because I convinced them to actually spend money on their stakes where as I got mine for free.
So the facts
We are talking about 4 accounts here not 40 or 50 or 200 like that crazy sock puppet person.
If these four accounts were sock puppets why would I not have simply loaded up on accounts during the free account registration period and avoided paying actual cash for them. I think my one buddy spent like $60 or a $100 buck the plus side to that is I got cash in hand for my bitcoin instead of paying an exchange/withdraw fee.
If these 4 accounts were sock puppets ie pump and dumpers we would have exchanged them for Nxt tokens and dumped them when each stake was worth $3600 but we didnt!
The reason our BTT accounts have been dead is because we for the most part only got them for Nem and are active on your FB page instead I under the Name of blank I am both positive and Negative in my posts as I find it gets the conversation going...... I am also the one that jokingly suggested a Nem Dev date auction.
We recently just threw all of the accounts on to one primary laptop to make life easier since the two guy lost interest in it until launch and G did not feel like deleting his Java again, deleting Nem client files again and then doing another fresh install every time a new beta was posted. We figured it was just easier to run one machines and keep it up to date then once everything launched if it launched we could go from there. We didn’t think that or at least I certainly did not think that since a person could now own/redeem multiple accounts from the exchange that centralizing all accounts would be an issue.
You can look at this two ways I suppose, the first would be that these account belong to four University buddies who hang out with one another a lot and live together or they are sock puppet accounts. Once again we are willing to do whatever is needed to prove that these accounts belong to four separate people some of us more eagerly than others.
So please let us know what we need to do the get this resolved, hope you have a great weekend and thank you for your time Makoto.

Hi,
Sorry for the late reply. Things have been quite busy.
I have no problem with giving you 2 of the 4 stakes. Your story is quite long and I confirmed your facebook account. However, it seems a little strange that the 4 of you would all have different IPs when registering from the same computer in the same house.
Does that sound reasonable?

Hello Makoto1337
Thank you for the reply, I can only imagine how busy you guys are getting ready for launch and dealing with account issues such as these.
I can also appreciate how different IP's might look a little strange however the explanation is fairly simple as I mentioned to the mysterious Nem Face Book person. We run Hola in order to experience the joys of American, Canadian and United kingdom netfilx as well as other on-line content. That combined with the fact that we were worried that we would get into this situation where we looked like sock puppets we did our best to avoid that situation basically by changing our vpn.... apparently we failed and then once multiple accounts could be claimed we didn't or at least I didn't think there there would be an issue combining everything and waiting for launch. I imagine no matter how you look at it if you have 2, 3 ,4 or 5 people living in one place they are potentially going to come off as sock puppets. Two accounts are tempting however unless we share them amongst the four of us at least two guys are getting hung out to dry.
We are willing to do whatever you need us to do the prove that we are in fact four guys living at the same place. If you are worried about us being sock puppets and dumping on launch you could always give us some of the accounts back after the launch and in the mean time we could just split the two Nem accounts 4 ways until then. That way we can prove that we arnt just here to pump and dump and if we are sock puppets we wouldn't have any negative effect on the launch of Nem.
Does that sound reasonable or is there something else that we can do to actually get all four of our accounts back?

Hello Makoto
G, J, J and myself were wondering if we could get an update on the status of our accounts. We realize that you and the Nem team are probably extremely busy with getting ready for the launch of new however since it has been 16 days since this process was started and our accounts were seized we would really like to get this sorted out.
As we have stated repeatedly we are willing do whatever is needed to prove that we are four roommates and that these accounts belong to four separate guys. Please get back to us as soon as possible since after waiting for a year and checking repeatedly we would really like to actually be part of Nem and the launch of Nem
Thank you for your time.

Hey Makoto
We were just wondering if you were still going to activate two of our accounts prior to launch and if so which of the two. We were just checking out the new client and kept getting a 121 error.
Sorry for bugging you it is just that we are really excited about the New Zealand launch on the first!!!!!
If you cant turn two of the accounts on prior to launch and prior to further looking into our account we understand
If you can please indicate which of our two accounts will come back on-line

Hello Makoto
Sadly I doubt that you and the Nem team can fully appreciate the level of inconvenience and disappointment that this is really causing the people that you have labeled as sock puppet. We have waited for 13 months for this coin to launch with multiple maybe launches and have gotten excited each time only to be disappointed with a delay.
Now as Nem readies for launch or well actually has just launched after 13 months of waiting we are now being asked or rather being told to wait another 1 to 2 weeks until the Nem team sits down and decides how plausible each of our stories are and whether or not we will be granted the privilege of being allocated our Nem stakes.
Now I one hundred percent agree that this should have been and needed to be done however they way you guys executed it couldnt be more horrible one the Name ie age of extinction that was a big slap in the face for everyone that was nailed innocent or otherwise. 2. Anyone that was a true sock puppet most probably laundered there Btt account through via Nxt tokens the moment you offered them 3. The fact that you had plenty of time to do it pre launch assuring that everyone could be part of launch instead you guys pull this the month of launch and leave a bunch of Nemians holding the bag. Basically saying hey we dont really care about you guys thanks for investing and waiting but we dont really need you around for the launch and hey maybe we will get back to you later. You guys didnt say this however thats what you actions have said.
So congrats on burning a bunch of people really interested in Nem heck I cant even run as a Node because I am not part of the genesis and I sure as heck am not putting more money into a coin that just burnt me and my roommates at launch.
I am sure that you have heard this before however I felt that I should at least have the right to voice my opinion hey who know maybe you will give the four of us our accounts maybe you will decide hey that I/we have sent to many emails and pissed you guys off so we wont get anything.
Regardless of what you decide with mine and my roomates accounts if you truly value and actually care about your community and are as egalitarian as you say. I think the Nem team should consider including a short apology to each account that they deem valid as well as a small compensation of additional Nem for making them miss the Nem launch necessary or not. After all the first two weeks of a new launch are the most exciting and have a tone of potential to sell and buy with the fluctuating price. In my case I was hoping to sell high and buy low to increase my overall Nem holdings however I clearly cant do that now.
Anyways there is my rant Nem team I will endeavor to continue keeping my posts civil however I cant really speak for G, K, and J, after all they are their own people and I am surprised that they have even started complaining on your fb page.
Have a great launch as I am sure it will be fun

That is beyond the point, today for example as I am sure you know Nem coin was trading for around $15,000 per stake only for about 20 minutes or so. Regardless I could have liquidated my share like many other did clear all of my debt and then bought back in for six shares at 2 bitcoin per share and hung out for the long term.
However due to the devs poor planing I and many other merely got to watch, and yes it was poor planning you guys could have done this early enough that it would have been resolved in time for launch.
Regardless that opportunity is well past and there will not be any big spikes with the chance to buy back in at a lower cost perhaps there will be a few minor ones if Nem hits other exchanges however they will be minimal. I imagine Nem will make it to .01 or .02 cents eventually in a year or so but hey after 13 months waiting for a final shafting without even the ability to be a node whats another 12 or 24 months.
Anyways my suggestion stands that the dev issue and appolagy and some form of compensation for whomever you deem worth of a Nem stake might make them a little less pissed about losing out on the same opportunity that was presented to the rest of the Nem community to you know make 15k and participate in launch.
Anyways I am clearly annoyed so before I say something inappropriate I will leave it here and maybe all get a reply saying hey where do we send your guys nem or hey you pissed us off and we had decided that you guys are sock puppets and no we wont bother taking you up on your offer to provide whatever we want as proof that you are four guys.
Just try looking at it from our point of view watching from the side lines.
Have a good one

Sorry that you missed the chance to dump
Anyway, I looked at your data a little more and it is not so convincing that you are all real people.
Post counts ranged from 1-6, accounts were registered 8-10 days after NEM was started, and all 4 accounts did not log in for between 148 and 152 days on BTT. Bobthebuilder23 and Squibbels both were last active at the same time as of the analysis.
I'm not trying to be mean or anything. We will probably end up giving you 2 of the 4 accounts, but even then I am not sure because all the accounts could be controlled by another user. We will think about this some more, rather than just rejecting outright, though.
« Sent to: makoto1337 on: April 01, 2015, 07:18:40 AM »
There you go twisting my words Dump no, trade yes.
After all Nem coin is a currency if you dont use it what is the point of it. If you can trade it for say 20 bit coins and then re-buy it at 2 why wouldnt you heck if I had my account today and things went well I would have my node running be up $6,000 and would have 10 Nem accounts to hold long term instead of one. After all isnt that what the bulk of nemians were doing today or should they just sit back and look at all there pretty Nem?
What can I say I look at potential and profit and I trade real stock in my spare time, I dont have much yet but I have learned a few things such as there will probably be a spike as each exchange takes on Nem so there is an opportunity to sell high and buy low and the more it is traded the more it will be traded like any currency, commodity or company on txm is.
Secondly I told you I got my roomates on board they registered got there accounts and waited I am Squibbels the squirrel as it is my gaming name G is Bob the builder he was probably a little more active as he is a miner after a while account maintenance fell to one machine and mainly me, even now they are only making the few odd posts on FB because they realized how shafted they just got. I imagine if you look back as per analysis many nemians registered a btt account got a Nem stake and didnt look back except for notifications but hey if you can get them from the guy sitting next to you or via facebook where most people are pretty much permanently logged in why would you bother with btt.
As far as the you might be a sock puppet or you might be four guys the thing I find funny is that we have offered to provided you with whatever poof that four people can reasonable provide that they live together and yet you don't seem interested. Seems like a real thorough process. So flip a coin or let us prove that we are who we say we are if this is really a egalitarian process rather then just a couple of guys sitting in a room saying hmm he/she has a good story but that guy over there we arent so sure.
Anyways I have said what I have to say so there really isnt much more that I can do/say. So I guess all wait for one of three emails
B, G, J and K where can we send your Nem Guys please provide us with x info so we can get this sorted out. Great story guys but your out have a good one. Or some other variation .
Anyways regardless of how the devs could have handled this prior to launch good job on a successful coin launch and no crashes.
Have a good one.

Can you give me some linkedin/facebook pages, etc? Something to prove these are real people? So far I am just getting messages from you, so it would help make your case better with more evidence. Otherwise, people are allowed 2 accounts (1 for themselves, 1 for a loved one), so that is probably the decision that will be made.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto and where is he now?

Where does Satoshi Nakamoto come from?

Any person that has been doing some research on cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin, probably has heard of this name before. Satoshi Nakamoto. Who is this mysterious man and why does no one know who he is? This goes back to October 2008, when an unknown user by the name of Nakamoto sent out the whitepaper for Bitcoin, a peer-to-peer Electronic Cash System to a cryptographic newsletter. After the announcement had been done and the manifesto describing the revolution Nakamoto was aiming to start, in January the software was released. He was the person to mine the Genesis block encrypted with the headline of the New York Times of that day. Nakamoto has stopped using his Bitcoin since mid-January 2009, with nowadays having Bitcoin that is worth over 19 Billion dollars. Unclear is to say if Nakamoto still has access to these coins. If so, he could just be the 44th richest person in the world. The problem is, nobody knows who Satoshi Nakamoto is. Besides a couple of posts on the forums about Bitcoin, there has been no personal messages or activities shared by Nakamoto.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

There are many different stories including many different answers to these questions. Let’s have a look at some of the most known speculations out there and see why they might be or might not be Satoshi, the creator of Bitcoin.
Hal Finney This man was one of the pioneers in the field of cryptography prior to Bitcoin being created. Back in 2009, Finney was the first person to ever do a Bitcoin transaction and besides Nakamoto himself, he was the only person to use the software. Many analysts have compared Finney’s writing to the published work of Nakamoto and found many similar techniques and styles. Years later, Finney denied all the claims as he showed correspondence between him and Nakamoto pointing at someone else being Nakamoto. Finney has died in 2014 and his family chose to freeze his body.
Dorian Nakamoto This man is the only person who actually has the same name. Dorian Nakamoto has the birth name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’, but this is not the only evidence. An article published in Newsweek showed an interview with Dorian confirming his affiliation with Bitcoin and confirming being the founder. The following interview, however, implicated Dorian had never heard of any virtual currency named Bitcoin nor does he have had anything to do with it. After the interview, the account used by Satoshi five years ago weirdly posted ‘I am not Dorian Nakamoto’. Whether this was the real Satoshi or a hacker, is unclear.
Craight Wright Probably the most known example is ‘Faketoshi’, better known as Craight Wright. Anyone that has known Bitcoin for a while knows it’s decentralized and the power is that no one is in charge. Anyone associated with Bitcoin confirms the identity of Nakamoto has to remain anonymous, except for Craig Wright. Ever since 2015, Wright has been claiming to be the inventor of Bitcoin. The fact that he has been affiliated with the project for years is clear, but being the inventor is false as confirmed by many Bitcoin pioneers. A couple weeks ago, the court has officially stated Craight Wright could not prove to be the inventor of Bitcoin.
In reality, nobody knows the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. The only way to confirm this is bringing all the old accounts back to live, moving the coins in the wallet that has been idle since 2009 and confirming the identity. This can be tough, Nakamoto might not even be alive nowadays. The beauty is, he does not have to be alive for Bitcoin to survive!

JAPAN’S ECONOMY AND THE BENEFITS OF CRYPTOCURRENCY

In 2008 Satoshi Nakamoto a computer programmer, sent out a 9-page white paper named: A peer to peer electronic cash system. Releasing the first Bitcoin software and changing history forever gifting the world with a cryptocurrency. In 2011 after collaborating with other developers, Nakamoto vanished. Eventually, everyone wanted to know who this man was, and soon reporters found Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto, and truly thought he was Nakamoto, but he wasn’t. No one knows why Nakamoto disappeared, some believe he vanished to allow Bitcoin to create its own wings, and others believe once he realized how big of a deal Bitcoin was he simply decided to remain anonymous. It is believed that he holds about 1 million bitcoins, which is worth about 7 billion today. And that is enough power to control the industry. But, no matter what the facts are and whatever has happened to Satoshi Nakamoto, he certainly has changed the world forever.
We all know the Japanese are very patriotic, so could the fact that Satoshi Nakamoto, the Japanese creator of Bitcoin, may have given them the boost they needed to support this ecosystem? Yes, maybe, I sure would be proud, wouldn’t you?
No matter what it is, Japan carries credibility in its culture, always very forward thinking, and seeing them fully embrace cryptocurrency, gives people confidence and trust to become a part of it as well. It could very much be influencing the world to join the community with less fear.
There are several countries around the world getting a boost in their economy from cryptocurrencies, like Italy for example, and now according to Bloomberg, 2018 could be Japan’s turn.
Japan’s central bank debt crisis, may have worried the population for a while, but Japan keeps on this positive approach towards cryptocurrency, allowing it to show the world the capability it has of opening new doors. The population has naturally leaned on cryptocurrency, as they now hold 40% of global cryptocurrency transactions.
Japan has become a hotspot for cryptos.
They have over 3.5 million investors according to 17 of Japan’s exchanges, which means it could actually be a lot more since there are 32 exchanges in the country, plus over 100 on the waiting list, says FSA.
Japan doesn’t fail in showing us that the way to stay ahead is to always embrace new technology.
Cryptocurrency: A light at the end of the tunnel for Japan’s Youth
Over the years, Japan’s economic crisis demanded much from their youth, which has put tremendous pressure on them to have to adapt in this time of much cultural change, and due to the high-level of stress and demand, their youth have been locking themselves in solitude.
According to Now This World News, there had been over 700,000 young men giving up hope and withdrawing from society. These men are referred to as “grass-eaters”. This effect has even been lowering their birth-rate(TFR) and creating stranded relationships.
So, could cryptocurrency be reviving this absolutely incredible nation’s youth and economy?
Definitely.
Most Crypto investors in Japan happen to be between the ages of twenty and thirty-five. This age group around the world have never been so interested in the economic sectors as since the birth of cryptocurrency. It just speaks their language.
The fact that cryptocurrency has become so popular in Japan it has generated a raise of 20 to 30% in salaries within this market, opening up positions for engineers, coders and others, inviting high-skilled individuals from all over the world.
Cryptos are good news in Japan!
Japan’s government has announced they are reviewing fundraising mechanism plans for ICOs, this means regulations. They are also one of the few countries who have recognized cryptos as legal tender.
A few technology and financial giants like Rakuten, LINE, GMO internet and SBI have embraced cryptocurrency and even made bitcoin payroll available to employees, and some are even active in the mining and exchange business. Pushing Japan one step at a time to becoming the global hub for cryptocurrency. Also, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) has announced that it is developing and soon to launch a private-blockchain-platform for online payments.
CONCLUSION Japan is not holding back, giving everything it got to interact and open ways for its people to engage and make this ecosystem a part of their everyday lives.
Go Japan!

One World Currency (Dollar + Bitcoin + GLID)

Many people are saying that Bitcoin will eventually dethrone the USD as the world "reserve" currency others are believe that Bitcoin is a ponzi scheme or that it was created / invented by the NSA. Most talk without really understanding Bitcoin and especially the revolution that the distributed ledger Blockchain represents. At the very least it is the most disruptive invention since the internet and it may have common origins.
Some may know that the internet genesis happened in 1962 as the "Galactic Network" concept as described in memos written by J.C.R. Licklider of MIT who incidentally or not was head of the computer research program at DARPA. The internet created the biggest giant surveillance grid for the NSA to spy on the world as the recent Snowden revelation outline. It is evident that apart from holding onto ICANN the USA controls the internet backbone which gives them strategic and economic advantage.
It widely believed that Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto is the inventor of Bitcoin and it's underlying technology but most miss the real question "Cui Bono" who profits from the existence of Bitcoin ? I would say the USA because it's the only entity with the power to take over Bitcoin with its Quantum supercomputers giving them a monopoly on bitcoin mining and because the USD is untouchable and will risk nothing from Bitcoin.
So if it is a DARPA project what is its use ? the answer is: to weaken all other world currencies so that in the end we will have Bitcoin because of it's superior qualities as a currency and the USD backed by the most powerful world army and by far the (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_oil_consumption) main unit of purchase of petrol the dominant energy source.
It is interesting to note that gold has been substituted for military power to back the USD and that Russia instead of backing Bitcoin has made it illegal as a means of exchange in it's territory another indication that Bitcoin is a tool of the US government.
The next move will be to effectively merge Bitcoin and the US dollar into the One World Currency attach it one world biometric identity the precursor being the GLID (Greenlist ID).
One more step towards One World Government.

4/23/14 - Bitcoin into space, Atlas ATS pushes forward, & Dorian Nakamoto says thank you

Video: http://www.moneyandtech.com/apr23-news-update/
Here are today's top news stories in Money & Tech:
The blockchain is headed for space. Jeff Garzik’s Dunvegan Space Systems is partnering with Deep Space Industries to build satellites called ‘BitSats’ that will be launched into space as a backup bitcoin orbital system. From orbit, these BitSats will be able to broadcast out transaction data from the blockchain to any users with a downlink. Garzik made the first payment to Deep Space Industries via BitPay, where he is also a senior software developer, and is now accepting bitcoin donations to help complete the project.
Bitcoin trading platform Atlas ATS has formed a partnership with The National Stock Exchange to speed up regulatory approval. By partnering with this self-regulatory organization, Atlas ATS hopes to bypass FinCEN's money-transmitting license in favor of SEC-approved rules that are more tailored to digital currency exchanges. Kraken and CoinMKT are also taking this route, as several exchanges race to become the first fully regulated digital currency exchange.
Nine state banking officials from the US Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS), including New York Superintendent Ben Lawsky, have launched the Emerging Payments Task Force. The new task force plans to investigate bitcoin and other virtual currencies in the hopes of developing state regulation best practices, as well as more educational resources. The discussion will begin with a public hearing on May 16th in Chicago.
With the reluctance of Irish banks to accept bitcoin, ATM provider BitVendo and safe deposit box facility Merrion Vaults have partnered to provide cold storage to BitVendo's local cryptocurrency users. The service allows users to store their bitcoins safely in Merrion Vaults' high quality and secure safe deposit vault in Dublin.
Butterfly Labs has been on rocky ground since this month's lawsuit against the bitcoin mining hardware company, accusing it of collecting payments for false orders and using customer equipment for their own mining. This recent lawsuit is only the latest accusation of fraud against the Kansas-based company. What's more, co-founder Sonny Vleisides has been found in violation of his probation since pleading guilty to one count of mail fraud in 2010, which will likely extend his probation another two years.
Dorian Nakamoto, the man famously falsely identified as bitcoin's creator, has filmed a YouTube video with Andreas Antonopoulos to thank the bitcoin community for its support. Antonopoulos led a fundraising campaign for Nakamoto that raised over 47 bitcoins - worth nearly $23,000 dollars - in a new bitcoin wallet that Nakamoto says he will keep open as a new bitcoin user. Watch that YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7YmJZ-qVW8.
Bitcoin documentary The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin premieres today at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. Money & Tech will be attending the screening, as well as the film’s after-party hosted by Charlie Shrem. We will be bringing you video coverage and interviews from that event soon.
We will also be attending the next major digital currency event this Friday, Dogecon SF, which will be San Francisco's first dogecoin conference. The event is hosted by Follow The Coin, and will feature prominent industry speakers such as litecoin creator Charlie Lee, industry expert Andreas Antonopoulos, and of course, Dogecoin's own creator, Jackson Palmer. We sat down with Tina Hui and Matt Schlicht from Follow The Coin to talk about what we can look forward to at Dogecon SF. Find that interview here: http://moneyandtech.com/follow-the-coin-dogecon-sf/
