Between November 2008 and April 2011, Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of the worldwide famous digital currency called Bitcoin, managed to publish the concurrency original protocol on the web, mentor a group of volunteers and move on to other projects without ever leaving a trace that could lead us back to him or her. Whoever this genius his, stealth is one of Nakamoto’s biggest qualities.
Of course, along the years a lot of possible identities came up and our latest infographic gathers all these options in the same place. From Shinichi Mochizuki to the Crypto Mano Group, you get to choose who you think is most likely to be Bitcoin’s “father”. While you are looking at it, notice the three big possibilities: the Finish Martti Malmi, a British-based group – composed by Neal King, Vladimir Oksman and Charles Bry – and Michael Clear, from the United Kingdom.
Everybody would like to know who Satoshi Nakamoto really is… However, this doesn't matter in the end, because this genius will be forever part of the Bitcoin universe and the responsible for what we today call concurrency. Even if Bitcoin eventually reaches its end, whether it’s because the bubble has burst or because the general interest has worn off, Satoshi will never be forgotten.
