The inventor of Bitcoin at the head of a fortune of $ 7.25 billion
Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto, a man whose Newsweek magazine had insured in 2014 that he was the inventor of Bitcoin.
Since 2009, the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto has amassed a huge fortune thanks to the electronic currency. What he decides to do is much more important than the revelation of his identity.
Bitcoin continues to die weekly ceilings on weekdays. Thursday, November 2, he exceeded $ 7,000 for the first time and many observers expect the $ 10,000 threshold to be crossed before 2018. But before a new landing flashes, a person must rub Hands in his (bit) corner: The one we have named since 2009 Satoshi Nakamoto, the mysterious creator of Bitcoin. Its fortune is estimated at 980,000 Bitcoins, raised thanks to the mining technique in the first months of the currency. This allegation has been consensus since the 2013 demonstration of Sergio Lerner specialist.
At present, he would be at the head of a booty of $ 7.25 billion. This would place it in the 191st place of the richest personalities in the world, according to the annual ranking of the American magazine forbes. Just below the Russian billionaire owner of the AS Monaco Dmitry Rybolovlev and in front of Silvio Berlusconi, the former President of the Italian Council and Magnat des Media.
On November 2, there were 16,660,788 Bitcoins in circulation around the world (the IT protocol provides for the creation of 21 million bitcoins, a number that should be reached around 2040). Satoshi Nakamoto therefore holds 5.88% of the total mass. This number of Bitcoins together in the hands of one person is regularly a source of anxiety on the part of the actors of the sector. A massive sale of Satoshi Nakamoto's neura would result in a monumental krach of the Bitcoin course.
"If Satoshi was able to sell nearly one million Bitcoins, it is not just the effect on the course we will have to worry about, but what I call" Faith ": after all, if The Creator loses confidence in Bitcoin, what should we deduce? "Explained in 2014 Jeremy Glaros, creator of a specialized trading platform. "Focus control over the market in so few hands is not good for integrity, equity and transparency".
Then remains the question of the identity of this mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto. Several people have claimed it since 2009. The last one is Craig Wright in 2016, a 44-year-old Australian entrepreneur who has quickly been a usurp. But in the end, the true identity of the Creator of Bitcoin does not matter. What he will do with his magot will have more effect on the durability of his invention.
