Satoshi: Interesting Fact on Bitcoin Founder’s Identity Hinted at By This CEO


On social media, discussions about Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin who goes by the pseudonym, have reappeared. After more than ten years, a Satoshi-era Bitcoin wallet holding 1,432 BTC worth $37,854,468 was just reactivated. This furthered the Satoshi-related debates already taking place on Twitter.

Chia network CEO Gene Hoffman made a statement on a Satoshi-related Twitter thread. Looking at the tweets in the discussion thread, it appears that several individuals think Satoshi is likely a collection of people rather than a single person. It was suggested that Len Sassaman and Hal Finney were the two most plausible contenders for “Satoshi,” or active members of the Satoshi “team.”

Hoffman entered the conversation and stated that there was only one wildcard person remaining in addition to Hal Finney and Len Sassaman. The creator of the email encryption application Pretty Good Privacy (PGP), Phil Zimmermann, who is accessible to the entire public via FTP download, claims that he might not be this person.

A follower of Len Sassaman and contributor to the illustrious Cypherpunk mailing list, where Satoshi initially launched Bitcoin, nominated Bram Cohen.

Hoffman replied hesitantly, pointing up the potential of someone else who may have been brought in unintentionally or who might have been involved with team Satoshi and understands how to make that vague.

All of them, however, are only conjectures, and Satoshi Nakamoto’s true identity is still unknown to this day.

Hal finney, Len Sassaman

Len Sassaman, also known as Len, was a cyberpunk who worked as a developer on open-source privacy software and PGP encryption. Additionally, he was an academic cryptographer engaged in P2P network research alongside blockchain pioneer David Chaum.

A homage to Len Sassaman was hacked into the transaction data on the Bitcoin network node.

When the Bitcoin code was complete and the programme was ready for testing, Hal Finney was given the first iteration. On January 10, 2009, he downloaded the code and logged on to the Bitcoin network. His PC was the first thing to join Satoshi’s network.

Two days later, Satoshi Nakamoto sent him 10 BTC in the first-ever computer-to-computer Bitcoin transaction. Finney, however, denied assertions that he was Satoshi prior to his passing.
