The creator of Bitcoin
In October 2008, Satoshi Nakamoto published a paper, titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” and released the first software that launched the Bitcoin network in January 2009. While there has been much speculation and controversy surrounding the real identity of Bitcoin’s creator, the mystery has not yet been solved with any certainty.
At this time nobody has confirmed if the creator of Bitcoin was man, woman, a group of individuals or other entities. As such the legend of Satoshi Nakamoto remains a topic of discussion which has generated a lot of different theories. Nakamoto never publicly disclosed any identifiable private details, however the work has been at times attributed to that of computer scientist Nick Szabo, developer and first Bitcoin transaction recipient, Hal Finney, as well as Craig Steven Wright, an Australian scientist among other, less likely options.
