The Search for Satoshi Nakamoto: Chapter IX. - John Forbes Nash

An American mathematician and a Nobel Prize Winner. That is who John Forbes Nash was. Some people would immediately refute the possibility that John could be Satoshi Nakamoto. However, others think, that it is not entirely unlikely.

Who is it?

As has already been mentioned, John Forbes Nash was an American mathematician. He worked in the fields of Game Theory and Differential Geometry. John was very successful, but his carrier got complicated because of serious psychiatric disorder – schizophrenia.

Why Is He a Suspect?

Many would laugh over this idea and some would even shake their heads in disbelief. However, we believe, that there are those who do not exclude the possibility. John could have a significant influence on the creation of Bitcoin. He is considered to be one of the greatest mathematicians of the 20th century. His mathematic and economic skill are things that would be quite handy during the development of Bitcoin. Beside IT skills, mathematic and economic skills were important to create Bitcoin.

Johns Nobel Prize for economy proves his skills quite right. Except for his skills, the reason to create bitcoin could be caused by his disease. In his thirties, he started to claim, that through the New York Times magazine, he communicates with aliens. It was a manifestation of schizophrenia. John quickly became paranoid. It is generally known, that people who suffer from schizophrenia are often paranoid. His paranoia could have caused him to feel persecuted, controlled and afraid of being stolen from.

Maybe this fear was what motivated him to create something that could hide both him and everyone else. Or maybe it was the desire to invent something. Or maybe there is no link between him and Bitcoin whatsoever. We will never know. The only thing we know is that John Forbes Nash had a huge impact on the world, as will Bitcoin.
