The true identity of the Bitcoin inventor is apparently not known to anyone. In any case, no one has yet made a completely convincing case to the public. Sometimes, however, a guessing game is more exciting than actually knowing the answer. Accordingly, very different names have circulated through the digital world in the past. The New York citizen Joshua Davis, for example, was of the opinion that the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto concealed the name Michael Clear, who has a degree in cryptography. Joshua Davis believed he had developed the BTC payment system. He also came to this conclusion because he fundamentally analyzed more than 80,000 words in the writings that Satoshi Nakamoto wrote online.
This thesis was based on the Ethereum code published by Nakamoto, but was not confirmed
However, he came into contradiction because he also considered the Finnish sociologist Vili Lehdonvirta, who has particular experience in the field of Ethereum code development, to be the true inventor of Bitcoin. However, both persons publicly denied hiding behind the pseudonym. In addition, an anonymous group also denied the Ethereum code claimed by Davis. Instead, they suspected that the anonymous payment system BTC was created by a group of three people. They were Charles Bry, Vladimir Oksman and Neal King.
Who is Satoshi Nakamoto and the Bitcoin code?
Under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto the inventor of the crypto currency Bitcoin code is known, who developed the reference implementation Bitcoin code Core in November 2008. Quote Wikipedia
In any case, it is known that the currency Bitcoin was registered on 18 August 2008 via a Japanese server. Almost 2.5 years later, the registration was transferred to Finland. Accordingly, Martii Malmi, who not only lives in Finland but also has experience in the field of software development, was also named in connection with the invention. However, this was not confirmed either. In the period that followed, new names were mentioned on a regular basis. In February 2014, for example, it was Dorian S. Nakamoto who was tracked down by the American journalist Leah McGrath Goodman.
But even this theory turned out to be an unconfirmed claim, especially as Dorian S. Nakamoto claimed not to know anything about Bitcoin at all. Finally, he commissioned a lawyer to make this official statement. It is obvious that the name Satoshi Nakamoto has led to the wildest speculation in the world. It’s not just the name itself that keeps giving rise to investigation. Since nobody seems to know the true identity, the name was long regarded as a ghost in the cyber world. But then another name came up: Craig Wright.
