Who Is Behind Satoshi Nakamoto?
August 13, 2018
New investigation of the mysterious cryptocurrency creator was started. A group of enthusiasts plans to hire private detectives in the US, Japan, Great Britain and Russia to determine Nakamoto’s identity.
Estonian German Neff has launched a crowd funding campaign in Russia with the purpose to raise $250,000 to establish identity of the founder of Bitcoin. The collected funds are to pay detectives’ service fees.
The group is motivated by both interest and quite logical approach. Neff explains:
“Satoshi needs to be found. And it is not just a trite curiosity. Now the market is on a fragile balance; for the further development of cryptocurrency, we need to know who created crypto and why. Was it really an enthusiast who gave the world an independent currency or was it a group of people pursuing scientific or purely selfish purposes? Or perhaps Bitcoin is an invention of a large company or an IT giant that decided to take a new direction? Can Bitcoin be the state invention, created with the purpose to control all transactions? There are many assumptions as to who might be behind this, but neither theory has been confirmed.”
For now there has been $105,000 raised.
