The Search for Satoshi Nakamoto: Chapter I. - Introduction

Satoshi Nakamoto is a person or a group of people, who started a new economic era by creating a brand-new form of money – cryptocurrency Bitcoin.


In 2009 a design of the Bitcoin site appeared on the internet. This data was shared publicly on P2P Foundation server, from Satoshi Nakamoto profile. Profile information said, that it is a 41 years old man from Japan. However, for a man from Japan, he had a perfectly fluent British English. In his notes, there were expressions like “bloody”, mainly used on the British Islands. Another circumstance refuting his Japanese origin is his site activity, which definitely did not correspond with a person living in Japan (if he did not have a special sleeping habits). It would make more sense if he came from America.

There are two suspects so far – Dorian Nakamoto and Craig Wright, though the latter might have been recently excluded from the Bitcoin community. Another possibility is, that Satoshi Nakamoto is a pseudonym created by a group of people hidden behind this name. There are also speculations, that Satoshi Nakamoto has a hidden meaning. “Satoshi” could be translated as “clear thinking”, “Naka” means “inside” and “moto” means “foundation”. The whole thing could therefore mean “clear thinking inside a foundation”.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies at all, could be supposedly known by an American security institution NSA, who allegedly examined the founder of Bitcoin in order to exclude the possibility, that it is a means of Russia or China to harm USA.
