Who Is Satoshi Nakamoto? Bloomberg Analyst Revealed the Name of Bitcoin Creator
Behind the pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto, the famous creator of the first cryptocurrency in the world, could be programmer Hal Finney, who passed away seven years ago.
This assumption was put forward on Twitter by Bloomberg chief analyst Eric Balchunas. In his opinion, it was Finney who created Bitcoin, since he was one of the first proponents of Bitcoin, participated in the development of the cryptocurrency and even conducted the first Bitcoin transaction in 2009.
Unfortunately, the programmer died back in 2014. Due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Finney was able to live only up to 58 years.
Balchunas suggested that Finney was hiding behind the pseudonym Nakamoto after he read a message on the forum that the programmer sent back in 1993. In that very old post, Feeney described a technology similar in principle to NFT technology.
At the time of this writing, the fortune of the creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto, who, according to various estimates, owns from 750 thousand to 1.1 million BTC, according to the current rate varies from $33.54 billion to $49.2 billion.
Satoshi Nakamoto was at the forefront of the birth of the cryptocurrency industry. Many call him the father of digital currencies. And in Budapest, not so long ago, authorities decided to erect a life-size statue in honour of Nakamoto.
