The Return of Bitcoin’s Satoshi
Bitcoin has always been a alluring asset since with it’s value and the right investment, it can have people financially sorted for life. The identity of the alleged Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto has never been revealed to the public. There are many theories as to who Nakamoto is, some think it is a group of people whereas others believe it to be the alias of one man who created the leading cryptocurrency. After he disappeared in December 2010, many people have been left wondering as to who he was and why he went off the radar.
Either way, Nakamoto has been a mysterious figure since the initial start of the paperless digital currency known as Bitcoin. Recently, Satoshi Nakamoto’s P2P profile has come back to life as the enigma recently made friends with someone called Wagner Tamanaha and made a post update which contained just one word that said ‘nour’.
Four years ago, Nakamoto's email was compromised which was directly related to his P2P profile so this could potentially be a hack instead of the mystery man himself.
A quick recap
In 2014, reports emerged saying that Nakamoto’s GMX email account was hacked in which it was originally used to announce to leading cryptocurrency in the P2P Foundation Ning forum. The hacker used the account to post a warning to Satoshi in the forum.
Robert McMillian wrote the following which was initially published at Wire.com.
“Dear Satoshi. Your dox, passwords and IP addresses are being sold on the darknet. Apparently, you didn’t configure Tor properly and your IP leaked when you used your email account sometime in 2010. You are not safe. You need to get out of where you are as soon as possible before these people harm you. Thank you for inventing Bitcoin.”
However, there is always a chance that Nakamoto has finally decided to reveal himself but this might be a stretch. If the secret man/woman/group was to show their faces now then it is a strange time to do it since the leading cryptocurrency isn’t doing too well in the markets. Not to mention, why would why Nakamoto show up on a platform that was previously hacked?
Whereas this could be the work of the previous hacker from 2014, there is always a glimmer of hope that Satoshi is set to come back into the space and explain all the secrecy and questions that still remain.
