Satoshi Nakamoto News
A pseudonymous person or group operating under the name Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin (BTC). Nakamoto released Bitcoin’s white paper in 2008 and launched its network in 2009.
Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? A number of theories exist, including that the Bitcoin creator is Nick Szabo, Hal Finney, Craig Wright or Vili Lehdonvirta. Finney corresponded with Nakamoto in Bitcoin’s early days via email, but the pseudonymous figure’s identity remains unknown. Nakamoto vanished around 2011. Satoshi Nakamoto’s net worth is possibly quite large. The pseudonymous entity holds 1 million BTC, based on theories.
