Sathosi Nakamoto has been a mysterious figure who is said to be the creator of Bitcoin. This mysterious figure has become a hot topic again due to Elon Musk’s tweets via his Twitter.
In a post he uploaded on Wednesday (9/3/2022), Elon did not give any statement but only an image.
Until this article was written, Elon Musk’s upload has already received more than 340 thousand likes and 47,500 retweets. What makes this post interesting is that Elon seems to be referring to the original identity of the Bitcoin creator, known as Satoshi Nakamoto.
The image uploaded by Elon on his twitter is the logo of 4 consumer electronics companies that are already widely known by the public, namely Samsung, Toshiba, Nakamichi and Motorola. Take note! If the initial letters are taken and combined it will form the name Satoshi Nakamoto.
It is not known what Elon’s intent and purpose in posting the picture was, whether it was purely a joke, seeking sensation or there was a hidden (implicit) meaning in it. So far, the pseudonym name Satoshi Nakamoto the creator of Bitcoin is still a mystery and a big question for many people.
Previously, Elon Musk had speculated that Satoshi Nakamoto was just a nickname used by the creator and the Bitcoin creator was rumored to be Nick Szabo’s real name.
So who exactly is Nick Szabo? What is the main reason for Elon Musk to suspect Nick Szabo?
Based on CNBC Indonesia’s investigation, the man suspected of being the creator of Bitcoin, whose real name is Nicholas Szabo, is a computer and cryptography expert as well as a researcher on legal aspects who specializes in contracts and digital money.
In 1989, Nick earned his bachelor’s degree in computer technology from the University of Washington. Nick also holds a Juris Doctorate from George Washington University, Faculty of Law.
For information, the Juris Doctorate degree is used for someone who has an initial education in the field of law to become a legal professional and can work as a lawyer (lawyer).
To note, Nick is also known as the first person to coin the term smart contract which is familiar to investors and crypto token traders. In addition, Nick also has experience developing a crypto token called BitGold which is considered the forerunner of Bitcoin.
56-year-old Nick created BitGold in 1998 as a solution to the problem of inefficiency in the banking system.
Elon’s speculation about Nick as the creator of Bitcoin is also reinforced by research and investigations conducted by the 2014 Aston University Center for Forensic Linguistics.
After reviewing various papers including papers published with the advent of Bitcoin, the similarities between the word structure and the language used by Nick are also very similar.
So the conclusion leads to the figure of Nick who has a high probability of being the creator of the crypto token with the largest market value in the world.
