If you had the chance to meet Satoshi Nakamoto and you could only ask him one question, what would you ask?

I would ask him this:

What was that thing which your mind was thinking when you struck with the idea of decentralised blockchain?

I’m interested in this because I really wonder how can one get the idea of blockchain out of nothing. There must be something, an incidence or event of life that motivated you to build something smart like this. Smart people always get motivation from real life events. We will probably never know but I’m sure a legend is going to be created for it, it is similar to the legend that Issac Newton understood gravity when an apple fell on his head, many says that anecdote is false and some others say it is true but it is irrelevant, the legend will keep on forever

  1. Look into the history of it. He didn’t think it all up like some revelation. It builds on several previous ideas and earlier versions of crypto, he just added the next part and got it to work. If it wasn’t him it would have been someone else.

  2. I’d like to ask him why he removed the P2P marketplace which was built in the first release in the second release. No explanation or reason given.

    BTC+P2P marketplace in 2009 would have been the bomb

  3. I’d ask what the ultimate goal was and if Bitcoin and its variants are going the way that they envisioned, is there anything that they didn’t foresee coming.

  4. I would simply ask his opinion on how Bitcoin has evolved over the past 10+ years and where he thinks it’s going in the next 10+.

  5. Who cares how he got the idea? What’s much more important is: How would he fix this mess we got ourselves into since he disappeared?
