2 137

Good day Friends!

Welcome to my micronews blog series called NewsBit, your daily source of news in chewable bit.

In this series, I will be posting short, bite size and interesting news that I have scoured from the different places of the web.

For this article, I will sharing with you new evidence about the identity of Bitcoin creator, Satoshi Nakamoto. This evidence is particularly significant because of the claims that a certain Craig Wright is the real Bitcoin Creator.

He even went further by asking websites to remove the Bitcoin Whitepaper in their platforms otherwise face copyright infringement complaint.

Before I begin, let me tell you that there are a lot of controversies about who is the real Satoshi Nakamoto.  No one can tell for certain who he is or who he was.  I am just sharing my latest find, breadcrumb-like signs, that could enlighten the public about him.  

According to Leung of, this digital obituary embedded on every single node of the Bitcoin network presents a very convincing case about the true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto.

The smoking gun has been inserted to transactional data which a sort of a tribute to Len Sassaman.  

I took a screenshot and put it side by side with the picture of Len to show the uncanny resemblance.

The digital obituary goes like this:

more. We dedicate
this silly hack to

BitCoin people. He

LOL'd at BitCoin's

This story makes a little sense of who Satoshi Nakamoto really is or was. I have posted an article of a possible existence of Bitcoin, but who knows.

Interesting article about the possible identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. Much has been speculated about the identity of the creator of Bitcoin, but I confess, I never thought about the possibility that he died.

Perhaps this hypothesis could be tested in the future. Even compilation theories could be formulated. Hopefully, the puzzle is solved someday.
