Bitcoin, Crypto 101

Nakamoto’s 10 year Disappearance

In the past ten years, Bitcoin‘s anonymous creator has been active for the last time on a Bitcoin forum. No one has heard from him ever since.

More Work to Do

When Nakamoto was active, Bitcoin’s inventor has been a mysterious enigma and led developers in the right direction from 2008 to 2010. Bitcoin’s creator left a final message to the community when Nakamoto added to the thread on named: “Added some DoS limits, removed safe mode.” The letter was written over ten years ago on December 12, 2010, and Nakamoto worried that “there’s more work to do.”

Satoshi Nakamoto (who could be a man, woman, or group of people—no one knows) made their final post on December 12, 2010, before logging off the next day to never return to the online world. Satoshi Nakamoto made their last post on December 12, 2010.

The editor of cryptocurrency exchange Kraken’s website observed on Twitter last Saturday. “10 years ago today, Satoshi made his final post to the BitcoinTalk forum,” he wrote.

Nakamoto’s final post last December 12 was regarding the prevention of Denial-of-Serve (DoS) attacks to the Bitcoin network.

He added that,

“There’s more work to do on DoS, but I’m doing a quick build of what I have so far in case it’s needed, before venturing into more complex ideas,”

Nakamoto said that time. “The build for this is version 0.3.19. Added some DoS controls. As Gavin and I have said before, the software is not at all resistant to DoS attacks. This is one improvement, but there are still more ways to attack than I can count. I’m leaving the -limitfreerelay part as a switch for now and it’s there if you need it. Removed “safe mode” alerts, ‘safe mode’ alerts was a temporary measure after the 0.3.9 overflow bug.”

Nakamoto further wrote:

“We can say all we want that users can just run with ‘-disablesafemode,’ but it’s better just not to have it for the sake of appearances. It was never intended as a long term feature. Safe mode can still be triggered by seeing a longer (greater total PoW) invalid blockchain.”

After ten years, Bitcoin‘s price has touched new highs because of institutional investors’ investment and endorsement from high-profile companies. But the guy behind the technology has disappeared.

While bitcoin (BTC) was trading for $0.20 per coin, Nakamoto left several technical replies on the forum that year, which addressed the current Bitcoin build at the time. In fact, throughout the first two weeks of December 2010, Nakamoto was very active on the forum.

No one knows why the inventor suddenly left, but Nakamoto showed that he was a bit upset the day before his very last forum message. This was because bitcoin had been mentioned in a viral article named: “Could the Wikileaks Scandal Lead to New Virtual Currency?”

Wikileaks has been blocked by US Financial blockade nad because PayPal, Mastercard, and Visa have stopped servicing the whistleblowers, Wikileaks leveraged bitcoin donations.

Nakamoto’s responses to the Wikileaks subject showed that one could assume the crypto inventor was annoyed by the attention the network was getting by that time.

“It would have been nice to get this attention in any other context,” Nakamoto stressed. “Wikileaks has kicked the hornet’s nest, and the swarm is headed towards us.”

Bitcoin was developing fast, and Nakamoto knows that he was losing some control and people were making up their minds on how the cryptocurrency should be back then. On the day that Wikileaks’ article from was published, Nakamoto also thanked Hal Finney in a post named: “minimalistic bitcoin client on D language?”

Six days before Nakamoto talking about the editorial, he has responded to someone who said “bring it on,” after hearing that Wikileaks had been considering cryptocurrency acceptance.

Nakamoto seemed to be flustered and was not a big fan of onboarding the nonprofit whistleblowing organization controlled by Julian Assange.

“No, don’t ‘bring it on,'” Nakamoto claimed. “The project needs to grow gradually so the software can be strengthened along the way. I make this appeal to Wikileaks not to try to use Bitcoin.

“Bitcoin is a small beta community in its infancy. You would not stand to get more than pocket change, and the heat you would bring would likely destroy us at this stage,” the inventor continued.

‘I Am Not Dorian,’ Self-Proclaimed Satoshis, and then logged off.

Ever since Nakamoto left, many self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamotos and even clues and messages have been widely exposed. There are tales from individuals like Craig Wright, a man who claimed to be Bitcoin’s inventor in the past five years. Though, Wright’s stories have been dismissed and debunked by the wonderful cryptocurrency community.

Matthew Leising, a Bloomberg columnist, told people about a so-called Satoshi and published an alleged tell-all about the and an individual dubbed: ‘Duality.’ The patent holder and Hawaiian resident Ronald Keala Kua Maria stated that he is Satoshi in several web domains with the name of “Bitcoin” and “Satoshi.”

It has also been said that the 47-year-old cartel boss Paul Le Roux could have been Satoshi. Still, none of these suspects and self-proclaimed individuals have ever provided a smoking gun pointing in their direction and have always failed to sway the greater crypto community.

It has been stated that Paul Le Roux could have been Satoshi as well. None of these suspects has ever provided a smoking gun pointing in their direction and always failed to sway the crypto community.

The creator of the biggest cryptocurrency had always been anonymous, and there have been many theories for the past ten years about his identity.

Until now, the information is still unknown. Satoshi Nakamoto left the crypto community ten years ago on December 12, 2010, with the final message about adding DoS controls. Everything else from that point forward has been a suspect and lacked evidence of legitimacy.

After Bitcoin’s inventor published his final post, the creator must be curious about the responses and may have been prepared to write a final message. Nakamoto logged into last December 13, 2010, logged off, and hasn’t been seen on the forum ever since.

One thing for sure, he has done an excellent job at keeping his identity a total mystery.
