Satoshi is a very intriguing mystery (that is worth 60 Billion USD today), and there are also so many experts having better information than me. I don’t think I can ever find Satoshi, and this post will probably offer very little to those that were early in Bitcoin.
As with most discussions on Satoshi’s identity, this is a post that covers only some of the parts of the Satoshi story. There is only factual information that can’t be used as evidence and no in-depth investigation.
It seems that lately, many seem to believe that Adam Back, the CEO of Blockstream, is also the person that created Bitcoin.
First of all, I have full respect for Adam Back. He is a person that has been a big inspiration to Satoshi with the hashcash invention and other notable technologies. Adam Back together with Wei Dai, Nick Szabo, David Chaum, and Hal Finney was a pioneer cryptographer. Mainly due to the double space he is using, he has been the prime suspect for being Satoshi.
I have a lot of doubts about that. There are more clues in the famous YouTube videos by BarelySocial and ColdFusion, but I have good reasons to believe this is just too easy, and Satoshi wasn’t going to make it easy at all. I may be wrong, but it can’t be Adam Back unless, of course, he was part of a bigger team that was Satoshi.
