The Well Deserved Fortune of Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin creator, Visionary and Genius

The Well Deserved Fortune of Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin creator, Visionary and Genius submitted by kutcorners112 to Bitcoin [link] [comments]

A blockchain investigation from a while ago asserted that it had found Satoshi's original Bitcoin stash of ~1 million unspent BTC. Has there been any further analysis/verifaction of this?

I'm referring to this investigation: The Well Deserved Fortune of Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin creator, Visionary and Genius
Very interesting if true. Really makes you wonder if Satoshi has access to these coins, and if he would ever start spending it at some point. If he waits and Bitcoin really becomes big he could easily become one of the richest people in the world.

Proof that Craig Wright is a Scammer.

Where is it?
Here are the allegations:
He scammed the Australian Taxation Office 
Source
.
He lied about a doctorate from CSU 
.
The whole CSW is Satoshi thing. 
Wow, I don't know where to start with this one, as I don't even know where I stand on it without hard evidence either way.
What I will say is that if CSW claiming to be Satoshi is a complete scam, it's an incredibly detailed and elaborate one, involving a lot of people, that was meticulously planned - until the exit plan. If this is true, how did he screw up the end so badly? What was his plan to finish the scam on a win?
I'm not going to weigh too much of my opinion on this because I am still open to new facts and arguments, except to say that at this point I believe CSW was probably involved in Bitcoin from the very early stages, and that it is at least plausible that he and Dave Kleiman had an involvement in the beginnings of Bitcoin. It also seems plausible that whoever Satoshi is, he (or they) does not want to be known. There could be many legal and Tax implications for the real Satoshi. Whatever the real story, it is not black and white.
I'm just going to leave some of my research trail here and you can make up your own minds:
To get a solid overall picture, this article by Andrew O'Hagan is a good start and worth the long read.
An article relating to the Trust with Dave Kleiman in Seychelles holding 1,100,111 BTC. If this is actually for real, it would explain why CSW does not have access to Satoshi keys or coins.
Again, the ATO interview from 2014 discussing bitcoin related issues from 2009
Gizmodo Article about CSW and Dave K
The Wired article claiming CSW to be a hoax, based on the supercomputer, the LinkedIn profile and the missing keys. And no other evidence.
Forbes spreading the accusations further, causing them to be more widely accepted as fact.
More opinions
More reports that the ATO were after "the creator of Bitcoin"
News that CSW's Australian Business is wound up. Again, no mention of any charges or fraud.
Something interesting that maybe somebody else can get more out of than me.
TLDR
I see a lot of people slinging mud, but not a lot of actual facts being tossed around. Before you just join the chorus of regurgitation, do what I did and try to discover some real facts for yourself. If all of the accusations are fabricated, then you must ask yourself who is fabricating it and why? What are their motives? Is there a deeper story?
And if you do find anything supporting either side of the arguments, I'm open ears and open mind. Just expect me to question your sources and to ignore statements of fact that can't be backed up.

Evidence Points to Bitcoin being an NSA-engineered Psyop to roll out One-World Digital Currency

Eye
I'm going to assume the readers who make it to this article are well informed enough that I don't have to go into the history of the global money changers and their desire for a one world currency.
(If you don't yet understand the goal of the globalist banking empire and the coming engineered collapse of the fiat currency system, you're already about 5,000 posts behind the curve.)
With that as a starting point, it's now becoming increasingly evident that Bitcoin may be a creation of the NSA and was rolled out as a "normalization" experiment to get the public familiar with digital currency.
Once this is established, the world's fiat currencies will be obliterated in an engineered debt collapse (see below for the sequence of events), then replaced with a government approved cryptocurrency with tracking of all transactions and digital wallets by the world's western governments.
NSA mathematicians detailed "digital cash" two decades ago
What evidence supports this notion?
First, take a look at this document entitled, "How to Make a Mint - The Cryptography of Anonymous Electronic Cash." This document, released in 1997 - yes, twenty years ago - detailed the overall structure and function of Bitcoin cryptocurrency.
Who authored the document?
Try not to be shocked when you learn it was authored by,
"mathematical cryptographers at the National Security Agency's Office of Information Security Research and Technology." 
The NSA, in other words, detailed key elements of Bitcoin long before Bitcoin ever came into existence.
Much of the Bitcoin protocol is detailed in this document, including signature authentication techniques, eliminating cryptocoin counterfeits through transaction authentication and several features that support anonymity and untraceability of transactions.
The document even outlines the heightened risk of money laundering that's easily accomplished with cryptocurrencies. It also describes "secure hashing" to be "both one-way and collision-free."
Although Bitcoin adds mining and a shared, peer-to-peer blockchain transaction authentication system to this structure, it's clear that the NSA was researching cryptocurrencies long before everyday users had ever heard of the term.
Note, too, that the name of the person credited with founding Bitcoin is Satoshi Nakamoto, who is reputed to have reserved one million Bitcoins for himself.
Millions of posts and online threads discuss the possible identity of Satishi Nakamoto, and some posts even claim the NSA has identified Satoshi.
However, another likely explanation is that Satoshi Nakamoto is the NSA, which means he is either working for the NSA or is a sock puppet character created by the NSA for the purpose of this whole grand experiment.
The NSA also wrote the crypto hash used by Bitcoin to secure all transactions
On top of the fact that the NSA authored a technical paper on cryptocurrency long before the arrival of Bitcoin, the agency is also the creator of the SHA-256 hash upon which every Bitcoin transaction in the world depends.
As The Hacker News (THN) explains.
"The integrity of Bitcoin depends on a hash function called **SHA-256**, which was designed by the NSA and published by the *National Institute for Standards and Technology* ([NIST](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Institute_of_Standards_and_Technology))." 
THN also adds:
"If you assume that the NSA did something to SHA-256, which no outside researcher has detected, what you get is the ability, with credible and detectable action, they would be able to forge transactions. The really scary thing is somebody finds a way to find collisions in SHA-256 really fast without brute-forcing it or using lots of hardware and then they take control of the network." 
Cryptography researcher Matthew D. Green of Johns Hopkins University said.
In other words, if the SHA-256 hash, which was created by the NSA, actually has a backdoor method for cracking the encryption, it would mean the NSA could steal everybody's Bitcoins whenever it wants (call it "Zero Day.")
That same article, written by Mohit Kumar, mysteriously concludes,
"Even today it's too early to come to conclusions about Bitcoin. Possibly it was designed from day one as a tool to help maintain control of the money supplies of the world." 
And with that statement, Kumar has indeed stumbled upon the bigger goal in all this:
To seize control over the world money supply as the fiat currency system crumbles and is replaced with a one-world *digital currency controlled by globalists*. 
Think cryptography is bulletproof? Think again…
Lest you think that the cryptography of cryptocurrency is secure and bulletproof, consider this article from The Hacker News, 'Researchers Crack 1024-bit RSA Encryption in GnuPG Crypto Library,' which states,
"The attack allows an attacker to extract the secret crypto key from a system by analyzing the pattern of memory utilization or the electromagnetic outputs of the device that are emitted during the decryption process." 
Note, importantly, that this is a 1024-bit encryption system.
The same technique is also said to be able to crack 2048-bit encryption. In fact, encryption layers are cracked on a daily basis by clever hackers.
Some of those encryption layers are powering various cryptocurrencies right now. Unless you are an extremely high-level mathematician, there's no way you can know for sure whether any crypto currency is truly non-hackable.
In fact, every cryptocurrency becomes obsolete with the invention of large-scale quantum computing.
Once China manages to build a working 256-bit quantum computer, it can effectively steal all the Bitcoins in the world (plus steal most national secrets and commit other global mayhem at will).

Ten steps to crypto-tyranny - The "big plan" by the globalists (and how it involves Bitcoin)
In summary, here's one possible plan by the globalists to seize total control over the world's money supply, savings, taxation and financial transactions while enslaving humanity.
And it all starts with Bitcoin...
  1.  Roll out the NSA-created Bitcoin to get the public excited about a digital currency. 
  2.  Quietly prepare a globalist-controlled cryptocurrency to take its place. (JP Morgan, anyone...?) 
  3.  Initiate a massive, global-scale [false flag operation](http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/sociopol_falseflag.htm) that crashes the global debt markets and sends fiat currencies down in flames (hoax alien invasion, hoax North Korean EMP attack, mass distributed power grid terrorism network, etc.) 
  4.  Blame whatever convenient enemy is politically acceptable (North Korea, "the Russians," Little Green Men or whatever it takes…) 
  5.  Allow the fiat currency debt pyramid to collapse and smolder until the sheeple get desperate. 
  6.  With great fanfare, announce a government-backed cryptocurrency replacement for all fiat currencies, and position world governments as the SAVIOR of humanity. Allow the desperate public to trade in their fiat currencies for official crypto currencies. 
  7.  [Outlaw cash](http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/sociopol_globalbanking.htm#Cashless_Society) and *criminalize gold and silver ownership by private citizens*. All in the name of "security," of course. 
  8.  Criminalize all non-official cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, crashing their value virtually overnight and funneling everyone into the one world government crypto, where the NSA controls the blockchain. This can easily be achieved by blaming the false flag event (see above) on some nation or group that is said to have been "funded by Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency used by terrorists." 
  9.  Require [embedded RFID](http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/ciencia/secret_projects/implants.htm#RFID) or biometric identifiers for all transactions in order to "authenticate" the one-world digital crypto currency activities. *Mark of the Beast* becomes reality. No one is allowed to eat, travel or earn a wage without being marked. 
  10.  Once absolute control over the new one-world digital currency is achieved, weaponize the government-tracked blockchain to track all transactions, investments and commercial activities. Confiscate a portion of all crypto under the guise of "automated taxation." In an emergency, the government can even announce *negative interest rates* where your holdings automatically decrease each day. 
With all this accomplished, globalists can now roll out absolute totalitarian control over every aspect of private lives by enforcing financial "blackouts" for those individuals who criticize the government.
They can put in place automatic deductions for traffic violations, vehicle license plate taxes, internet taxes and a thousand other oppressive taxes invented by the bureaucracy.
With automatic deductions run by the government, citizens have no means to halt the endless confiscation of their "money" by totalitarian bureaucrats and their deep state lackeys.
How do you feel about your Bitcoin now...?

Origin of "Satoshi has 1m BTC"?

I'm trying to track down how it was worked out that Satoshi's unmoved stash is a million bitcoins.
The origin appears to be this post by Sergio Lerner. He puts the number at 1,148,800 BTC as of April 2013.
I haven't seen much critique or verification of this work, people seem to accept the number.
Sergio himself mentions another article that launches off his post: [1] [2] [3].
But - has anyone else ever worked out these numbers, or anything related to working out the size of the Satoshi stash?

Satoshi Nakamoto is 350th richest person in the world

With an estimated 1 million Bitcoin (https://bitslog.wordpress.com/2013/04/17/the-well-deserved-fortune-of-satoshi-nakamoto/), he's worth $4.7 billion at the moment, putting him around 350th richest person in the world (https://www.forbes.com/billionaires/list/8)
submitted by mantisdrop to Bitcoin [link] [comments]

Shower Thought: At a price of $69k per Bitcoin Satoshi becomes the richest person in the world.

The richest person in the world today is Bill Gates with $79B [1]. Satoshi controls an estimated 1148800 remaining bitcoin [2].
$79B / 1148800 = $68767 per Bitcoin.
This is all assuming Satoshi doesn't spend any between now and then, and that we estimated his holdings well, and that the rich won't get richer in the meantime, which are all increasingly unreasonable assumptions. Food for thought, though.

Satoshi theory

I have a feeling satoshi just deleted his coins. The more I think about it, if they are indeed a single individual it just seems like the logical thing to do in his position. He amassed ~900k coins which is likely one of the largest pre-mines coin stakes in the whole crypto-sphere, that runs counter-intuitive to his original vision. Essentially everyone has factored him out of the picture into today's price, if his coins started moving the exchange rate would go into a immediate panic, and the media would cry "PONZI". It would be a would be a pretty poetic ending to the bitcoin movie, just a shot of satoshi at his computer hitting the delete key and moving on to "more complex ideas."
Edit: Pre-mine is a poor choice of words, Hal was the second miner around block 70 so everything after that is obvious far game, and clearly he didn't stop mining after Hal joined. I just meant relative to bitcoins currently in circulation ~900k is quite a large percentage, ~7.5%.
Edit: ~900k figure based on this blockchain analysis which claims satoshi owns a stake of ~1000k: http://bitslog.wordpress.com/2013/04/17/the-well-deserved-fortune-of-satoshi-nakamoto/

Satoshi Nakamoto, whoever he is, is about to be worth over USD $10,000,000,000

We know that Satoshi has at least 1,000,000 BTC based on this analysis: https://bitslog.wordpress.com/2013/04/17/the-well-deserved-fortune-of-satoshi-nakamoto/
The above figure does not take into account mining that he may have done since the very early days of Bitcoin mining (pre-pizza). Most of these funds have not moved since then.
As Bitcoin nears $10k today, we can therefore infer that he has a net worth of close to $10B, if not much more.

Satoshi's coins are the central bank of Bitcoin: thinking through the way forward

Assuming that one entity controls upwards of 1 million coins1, I see that as a problem for Bitcoin's position as an alternative to fiat currency.
When I read the white paper, there's a serious cognitive dissonance when Nakomoto writes things like "The problem with this solution is that the fate of the entire money system depends on the company running the mint." Are not the unmoved ~1M bitcoins a private mint with the power to disrupt the monetary system at any point?
There are at least two problems with this situation:
Money supply uncertainty
Ideological contradictions
Ways forward
In my mind, the currency would be much stronger, and better poised for mass adoption, if Satoshi either dumped his coins on the market, or created some kind of distribution scheme. Either pathway would temporarily drop the price far below $100, but would ultimately pave the way for a Bitcoin that makes ideological sense, and thus for global mass adoption.
Now it's possible that Satoshi is dead, or has lost the keys to the coins. If this is the case, and it never comes to light, it may leave a long-term cloud of uncertainty hanging over Bitcoin that prevents it from reaching its full potential.
I'm not arguing that Satoshi doesn't deserve to be well-compensated for one of the best inventions of the century.
On the other hand, if he's alive, I think he will eventually realize that holding the coins without any communication w/t to his long-term plans diminishes the potential of his currency.

What would you do with your bitcoin stash if you would be Satoshi Nakamoto?

According to this analysis Satoshi's BTC stash is about 1m BTC. Any movement of these coins would have a huge effect on the bitcoin price and perhaps overall bitcoin economy in one way or the other. So, what would you do if you were Satoshi Nakamoto? Consider, that you cannot spend/sell any coins for your own good without risking to reveal your identity.

Bitcoin history in one chart - How it all began

I recently announced the launch of OXT (https://oxt.me), a tool facilitating the exploration of the blockchain.
OXT is built on the idea that data visualization can help us to detect and better understand events or patterns of activities occurring on the blockchain.
Looking for a way to demo this point, I've came up with the idea of a series of posts associating a chart to an event of bitcoin history. Some of them are well-known events. Some of them remain "mysterious".
I hope these posts will be an opportunity to start discussions allowing "veterans" to share their experience & knowledge with newcomers.
Today's chart may be not the most exciting of the series but the event is for sure one of the most important in bitcoin history. So, let's go and enjoy your journey in the blockchain !
January 2009 - The first blocks are mined on the bitcoin network, reaching an average of ~120 blocks per day after 5 days.

So the Satoshi team is sitting on 1.1 million never used bitcoins. Care to guess why?

According to this analyses, there are 1.1 million early bitcoins mined by the same machine and they were never used.
https://bitslog.wordpress.com/2013/04/17/the-well-deserved-fortune-of-satoshi-nakamoto/
It is safe to assume they belong to the Satoshi team. Here are a couple of possible explanations, please feel free to post yours:
  1. The Satoshi team is part of the US government, thus the coins are government property and they can not be sold for personal gain. To me this is the most sound explanation.
  2. They were all lost. Although not unlikely, it is hard to imagine. For the currency purpose, they should have been spread among users at the early stage. A currency hoarded is not a functioning currency. If you give it away, you still keep your anonymity....
  3. The owners are holding it for financial gain. Kind of hard to believe, since the $250+ price would have tempted anyone to cash out at least some of it. They could have sold some of it into the rally without pushing the price down...
  4. The owners plan to influence the market at some point later. I don't see it. They could have cooled the market by selling into the parabolic rise, and stabilize the price but they didn't. They could have used some of the profits and set up a stable exchange market but they didn't.
  5. A combination of the above explanations...

Segregated Witness: A Fork Too Far

It is [...] unclear what proportion of the total number of the legacy UTXOs will migrate to SW outputs. Long-term holders of Bitcoin, such as Satoshi Nakamoto (presumed to be in possession of ~1 million Bitcoin), may keep their coins in non-SW outputs [...]. This makes future soft or hard forks to Bitcoin more difficult as multiple classes of UTXOs must now be supported to prevent coins from being burned or stolen.
One key concern is that the coexistence of two UTXO types may tempt developers and miners in the future to destroy the non-SW UTXO[s].
Some may view this as an unfounded concern, but the only reason that this is worth mentioning in this article are the comments made by influential individuals associated with Bitcoin Core:

    2. Pierre Rochard: "Until your altcoin successfully defeats a coordinated attack like NYA/S2X, with 90% of the hashrate and major businesses trying to force a hard fork, its immutability is untested and its monetary policy is suspect.

Reminder: You can send people BTC via text message and email.

Via Blockchain.info: https://blockchain.info/wallet/send-via
Via Coinbase: http://blog.coinbase.com/post/58354652059/you-can-now-perform-all-basic-actions-in-bitcoin
(note: requires the recipient to already have a Coinbase account, which is IMHO less than ideal)
Also, WWSND? I think he would SHARE! (Well, theoretically. He hasn't... yet.) So share those darn BTC. The ultimate demo is sending people some.
EDIT: Also http://coinapult.com/

A lot of cryptocurrencies have died because the creator premined them. Satoshi Nakamoto premined around 1 million BTC, why is this any different?

So I see a lot of (validated) hate for cryptocurrencies where the creator stashed a huge fortune for himself before setting it loose, but somehow Bitcoin seems to never catch any flak for this. Anyone care to explain?

You first claimed Bitcoin is an ICO because someone had to pay for the electricity in 2009, therefore scarce resources namely fiat currency were sacrificed in order to obtain bitcoin.
This is correct. But I pointed out the electricity burned to obtain bitcoin from mining is LOST, not given to a third party like it is in an ICO.
You countered by saying "but you still pay electric companies derp". To which I responded, the electric companies got nothing in 2009 that they wouldn't have gotten by regular Joe running his consumer PC as before. Anything over that amount was so small as to be immaterial.
This counterpoint of yours is also a Red Herring since the electric companies had nothing whatsoever to do with Satoshi Nakamoto's launch of Bitcoin. The two entities aren't related in the slightest. Conversely, in an ICO, the people who receive the proceeds of the sale are the issuers of the new token, as in a traditional IPO.
Now at this point, it appears you're just trying to redefine the common vernacular "ICO" to mean the inception of any digital token under the sun. Ironically, the phrase ICO came about precisely because of how closely ICOs resemble traditional IPOs.
You then handwave about how Satoshi got fabulously wealthy off of BTC, which is another Red Herring not to mention extraordinarily tone deaf. Satoshi INVENTED "blockchain": the thing that allows people to launch ICOs. Satoshi's fortune is well-deserved.
Fundamentally, people paid for Counterparty tokens in bitcoin, just as people paid for Bancor tokens in ether
No. Tokens burned in a proof of burn event are gone forever. No one receives them. They are NOT paid to anyone. Tokens are deleted - POOF GONE.
The fact that the issuer chose to burn that bitcoin rather than buy a new lamborghini with them
Excuse me? Who was the "issuer" of Counterparty?

Bitcoin history in one chart - How it all began

I recently announced the launch of OXT (https://oxt.me), a tool facilitating the exploration of the blockchain.
OXT is built on the idea that data visualization can help us to detect and better understand events or patterns of activities occurring on the blockchain.
Looking for a way to demo this point, I've came up with the idea of a series of posts associating a chart to an event of bitcoin history. Some of them are well-known events. Some of them remain "mysterious".
I hope these posts will be an opportunity to start discussions allowing "veterans" to share their experience & knowledge with newcomers.
Today's chart may be not the most exciting of the series but the event is for sure one of the most important in bitcoin history. So, let's go and enjoy your journey in the blockchain !
January 2009 - The first blocks are mined on the bitcoin network, reaching an average of ~120 blocks per day after 5 days.

Discover how data analysis & data visualization were used to estimate the number of bitcoins mined by the creator of Bitcoin.
