Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
Every major invention or revolutionary change in the world has a main protagonist. An innovator that comes up with an idea that seems to be larger than life and turns into a phenomenon that goes beyond anything people would expect. It’s very weird for anyone to even consider the idea of not wanting to get credit for their ideas and their innovations, but Satoshi Nakamoto seems to be the exception and many are speculating that he doesn’t’ even exist.
The truth is that there are all kinds of theories behind this individual. He happens to be credited for the creation of the now famous Bitcoin Cryptocurrency. The funny thing is that tracking down who he was and where he came from seems like a continuous mystery. The guy who is supposed to be the creator is Japanese man who resides in California. His name is Satoshi Nakamoto, but he has denied being involved and not only that, but he has even said that he had no idea what Bitcoin was back when he was asked about it in 2014.
This opens a world of questions about this enigmatic individual who everyone wants to get to know. It would almost seem like a perfect way to avoid the scrutiny and that would be perfectly understandable. The creator of something so revolutionary would be asked for interviews, conferences, and TV show appearances all the time. Nakamoto looks like the kind of person who would feel extremely uncomfortable with being in the spotlight.
There is a lot of scrutiny when you become a public figure and even more when you are creating something that is meant to revolutionize the economy of the entire planet. That is a heavy burden to carry when you have so many powerful corporations and financial entities trying to bring your idea down.
We are seeing a huge change in the way the economy works now and this is definitely a huge factor that is making this shift possible. Let’s face it, love them or hate them, cryptocurrencies are on the verge of changing the world as we know it, but this change generates a great deal of enemies too. Not everyone wants this to happen and time will tell how long it takes for cryptocurrency in general to be protected from this kind of attempts to take it down, but in theory, there is no way that this can be stopped at this point. This is the main reason why finding out who he really is and what he is all about has captured the attention of many. The more this remains mysterious, the more that it builds a certain level of mystique around Nakamoto. Maybe someday he will decide to come clean about his involvement and perhaps we could find out that he wasn’t the mastermind after all. That remains to be seen, but so far, the quest to reveal who the real creator of Bitcoins is still in full force.
