Did Bitcoin originate on the banks of the Thames? A report claims to have determined Satoshi’s former whereabouts.
Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? There are numerous myths and legends surrounding the inventors of Bitcoin. In April 2011, he disappeared forever from the scene. His identity remained unknown.
Every secret needs to be revealed and so Bitcoin fans went on a hunt for tracks on the World Wide Web. They checked countless leads and discussed a number of possible candidates. Even the movement of ancient Bitcoin is causing newsworthy excitement 9 years later. All search efforts have so far failed. Also in November 2020, we do not know who is behind the pseudonym. A new investigation now claims to have found at least one stopover for Satoshi Nakamoto: London.
Chainbulletin’s cyber noses gave this conclusion first, the time stamp of Satoshi’s emails, his contributions in the Bitcointalk forum, and postings on the developer platform SourceForge. The times suggest that Satoshi must have been either in Great Britain or on either coast of the United States between 2008 and 2010. However, the authors rule out that he lived in Japan or Australia during this period — in which he worked on the Bitcoin protocol.
But three-time zones are still two too many. In order to further narrow the search radius, the crypto detectives, therefore, examined the Bitcoin Genesis block. Because, as is well known, there is the following message “The Times 03 / Jan / 2009 Chancellor shortly before the second bailout for banks.” Frontpage of The Times newspaper was decorated.
In the USA, however, the newspaper was not available in this form and the article also appeared online with a modified headline. For the Chainbulletin team, that is enough evidence that the Bitcoin inventor must have been in Great Britain. If one adds to this (not new) consideration the information that almost half of all Times readers come from London, the conclusion about Satoshi’s whereabouts is not far off.
This line of argument is anything but waterproof. You yourself discuss some counter-arguments. Your attempts to rebut the objections are incidentally not too convincing. But that only appears secondary. The ongoing search for Satoshi has long since become a popular community activity for Bitcoin disciples. So we can look forward to further publications on the subject in the coming years.
