Satoshi Nakamoto’s disappearance is no mystery, but a Masterplan executed wisely.

Today marks the 11 year-Anniversary of the Satoshi Nakamoto completly disappeared till today. Today he/she/they released their last message to the public, that already forshadowed the disappearance, the message was about not caring much about him but Bitcoin as a whole and the Dev team that was and is basically working for free on Bitcoin.

Now after 11 years many see this as a major mystery and maybe say that he even died. But for me it’s seems clear that he knowingly made this decision of going out forever.

During that time he disappeared, Bitcoin was picking up pace for the first time. Already the first big investments came in and it actually was seen as serious by some people. His work was done. He brought Bitcoin to the light and it was not his task to bring it further.

Because of his disappearance, today no one is capable of criticising him as he basically does not exist. He left making Bitcoin truely neutral, there is no “head” or maker that has any specific goals for this projects, it’s truely just us.

  1. Satoshi is dead. His disappearance was more the result of degenerative illness and worsening depression than anything of a master plan. It just worked to the benefit of the project.

    For those who have never read this before, it’s a really good opinion piece that puts a lot of evidence together to claim Len Sassaman was Satoshi Nakamoto:

    His public twitter contains many of the same English spelling used by Satoshi, because Sassaman was an American born in Pennsylvania, educated in the Bay Area, then moved to Belgium for post-doctorate work. He also had access to the issue of The Times that was quoted in the first block’s coinbase.

    He committed suicide in July 2011, only a few months after Satoshi’s last message.

  2. I think he might even be alive, but that’s not the point and we shouldn’t look into it too much. His idea has always been for BTC to mimic something scarce, rare with special ability – to transport value through means of communication

    For BTC to succeed in his opinion, no person/name was to be associated with BTC

  3. I hope hes alive and enjoying himself. The creator of bitcoin should, at the very least, be able to reap his own fruits

  4. Seems like a million bitcoin forever gone.
    Real wild if you think about it literally 1/21 of bitcoin never to move.

  5. You’ve just described the fairytale version of Satoshi and Bitcoin’s creation. Perhaps it’s good for a bag pumping but it’s far from the truth. I’d hope Bitcoin is resilient enough at this point to not require fairytales.

  6. Satoshi knew that the only person that could shut down or damage BTC was himself.

    By disappearing he made his protocol really decentralized, now nobody can destroy it.

  7. I keep trying to tell people this is one of the things that makes bitcoin unique and extremely valuable, technology aside. It belongs to the people and not some figure head or god like programmer. It truly belongs to the community and those who develop, mine, and use it world wide

  8. So idolizing the dude/dudette. For all you know they died of autoerotic asphyxiation looking at gerbil porn. This is just sad.

  9. Lol. If you read Bitcoin whitepaper, it states that satoshi is THEY (WE). And you can dig a little deeper and connect some clue and have feeling who that might be.

  10. Precisely, he knew the US government would go after him if his identity was discovered. So after his work was done establishing Bitcoin he simply disappeared into the pages of history. Genius move.

  11. BTC is the only coin with true organic growth. Satoshi leaving when he did was a pretty good move in that regard.

    As far as I’m concerned, Satoshi is dead until proven otherwise 🤷‍♂️

  12. If beetcoin does what many if us think it’s going to do, Satoshi Nakamoto will ascend to real-life levels of heroism that only mythological heroes were thought to have attained. The Batman of global finance reform. Legendary would be an understatement
