Satoshi Nakamoto is the name used by the presumed pseudonymous [1] [2] [3] [4] person or persons who developed bitcoin , authored the bitcoin white paper , and created and deployed bitcoin's original reference implementation. Nakamoto was active in the development of bitcoin up until December In October , Nakamoto published a paper [8] [9] on the cryptography mailing list at metzdowd. In January , Nakamoto released on Sourceforge version 0. Nakamoto claimed that work on the writing of the code began in The implemented solution enabled specialized codes and data fields from the start through the use of a predicative script.

Nakamoto created a website with the domain name bitcoin. Around this time, he handed over control of the source code repository and network alert key to Gavin Andresen , [15] transferred several related domains to various prominent members of the bitcoin community, and stopped his involvement in the project. Until shortly before his absence and handover, Nakamoto made all modifications to the source code himself.

On 3 January , the bitcoin network came into existence with Satoshi Nakamoto mining the genesis block of bitcoin block number 0 , which had a reward of 50 bitcoins.

The text refers to a headline in The Times published on 3 January Except for test transactions, Nakamoto's coins remain unspent since mid January Nakamoto has not disclosed any personal information when discussing technical matters.

On his P2P Foundation profile as of , Nakamoto claimed to be a year-old male who lived in Japan , [23] but some speculated he was unlikely to be Japanese due to his native-level use of English [22] and his bitcoin software not being documented or labelled in Japanese.

Some have considered that Nakamoto might be a team of people: Dan Kaminsky , a security researcher who read the bitcoin code, [24] said that Nakamoto could either be a "team of people" or a "genius"; [25] Laszlo Hanyecz, a developer who had emailed Nakamoto, had the feeling the code was too well designed for one person.

Occasional British English spelling and terminology such as the phrase "bloody hard" in both source code comments and forum postings led to speculation that Nakamoto, or at least one individual in the consortium claiming to be him, was of Commonwealth origin. Stefan Thomas, a Swiss coder and active community member, graphed the time stamps for each of Nakamoto's bitcoin forum posts more than ; the resulting chart showed a steep decline to almost no posts between the hours of 5 a.

Greenwich Mean Time. This was between 2 p. Japanese time , suggesting an unusual sleep pattern for someone presumably living in Japan. As this pattern held true even on Saturdays and Sundays, it suggested that Nakamoto was asleep at this time. There is still doubt about the real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. Hal Finney 4 May — 28 August was a pre-bitcoin cryptographic pioneer and the first person other than Nakamoto himself to use the software, file bug reports, and make improvements.

However, after meeting Finney, seeing the emails between him and Nakamoto and his bitcoin wallet's history including the very first bitcoin transaction from Nakamoto to him, which he forgot to pay back and hearing his denial, Greenberg concluded that Finney was telling the truth. In December , a blogger named Skye Grey linked Nick Szabo to the bitcoin whitepaper using an approach he described as stylometric analysis. He is known to have been interested in using pseudonyms in the s.

Financial author Dominic Frisby provides much circumstantial evidence but, as he admits, no proof that Satoshi is Szabo. In a July email to Frisby, he said: 'Thanks for letting me know. I'm afraid you got it wrong doxing me as Satoshi, but I'm used to it'. Besides his name, Goodman pointed to a number of facts that circumstantially suggested he was the bitcoin inventor.

Nakamoto was laid off twice in the early s and turned libertarian , according to his daughter, and encouraged her to start her own business "not under the government's thumb. It's been turned over to other people. They are in charge of it now. I no longer have any connection.

On 8 December , Wired wrote that Craig Steven Wright , an Australian academic, "either invented bitcoin or is a brilliant hoaxer who very badly wants us to believe he did". The same day, Gizmodo published a story with evidence obtained by a hacker who supposedly broke into Wright's email accounts, claiming that Satoshi Nakamoto was a joint pseudonym for Craig Steven Wright and computer forensics analyst David Kleiman , who died in A number of prominent bitcoin promoters remained unconvinced by the reports.

In May , Wright started using UK libel law to sue people who denied he was the inventor of bitcoin, and who called him a fraud.

In Wright registered US copyright for the bitcoin white paper and the code for Bitcoin 0. In a article in The New Yorker , Joshua Davis claimed to have narrowed down the identity of Nakamoto to a number of possible individuals, including the Finnish economic sociologist Dr.

All three men denied being Nakamoto when contacted by Penenberg. Dustin D. Trammell, a Texas-based security researcher, was suggested as Nakamoto, but he publicly denied it. The two based their suspicion on an analysis of the network of bitcoin transactions, [74] but later retracted their claim.

A article [76] published by Sahil Gupta espoused the possibility of Elon Musk being the real Satoshi, based on Musk's technical expertise with financial software and history of publishing whitepapers.

You can report any problem or help to improve bitcoin. Transactions are verified by network owner through cryptography and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain. Gox in Users can tell others or make public a bbitcoin address without compromising its corresponding private key. On 3 Januarythe bitcoin network was created when Nakamoto mined the first block of the chain, known as bitcoin genesis block.
