One of the biggest mysteries in the technology world is the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, the computer programmer who invented the digital currency bitcoin.

That's because the name—Satoshi Nakamoto—is a pseudonym. It could represent a man, a woman, or even a group of people.

And, since the cryptocurrency was created in 2008, no one has been able to figure out who Nakamoto really is.

But beyond solving a longstanding mystery, experts agree that uncovering Nakamoto's identity could have an immense impact on bitcoin's economics and internal politics.

Bitcoin's Beginning
In 2008, Nakamoto published a nine-page white paper containing the first-ever mention of bitcoin, calling it a "peer-to-peer electronic cash system."

A few months later, Nakamoto released bitcoin's first software and partnered with developers and coders online to improve it.

This collaborative environment continued until 2011 when, without warning, Nakamoto vanished.

Before ceasing all online communication, they emailed a fellow bitcoin developer saying they had "moved on to other things."

But here's the catch: Nakamoto didn't walk away empty-handed.

Sergio Demian Lerner, an Argentine researcher, has estimated that Nakamoto accumulated around a million bitcoins before disappearing.

Today, that stash is worth over $5 billion.

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?
The mystery will take us from the Land of the Rising Sun all the way across the world to a small Californian town named Temple City and then back across the Pacific Ocean to an Australian doctor.

The now iconic white paper, which was published on networking P2P Foundation, said the elusive Nakamoto lived in Japan and was born in 1975.

But when the world's media thought they had found their Satoshi Nakamoto in 2014 - he was a computer engineer living in Temple City in Los Angeles County.

And while the Japanese-American man, named Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto, firmly denied he was the shadowy force behind the infamous cryptocurrency - the plot continued to thicken.

It soon emerged that computer scientist Hal Finney, who was the recipient of the first Bitcoin transaction, lived a "few blocks" from the seemingly-oblivious Nakamoto.

Forbes journalist Andy Greenberg attempted to interview Finney at his home - despite him battling terminal disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), which rendered the crypto-community enthusiast "locked" into his body and unable to speak or move his muscles.

Greenberg believes Finney, who appeared amused when the journalist asked if he knew Nakamoto, was either the ghostwriter for the Bitcoin creator or simply used his neighbour's name as a moniker.

But that's not all. Finney also knew “decentralised currency enthusiast” and scientist Nick Szabo who penned a paper on "bit gold" way back in 1998 and was said to be a fan of pseudonyms.

Szabo also confirmed in 2011 that only he, Finney or Wei Dai - creator of Bitcoin precursor B-Money - could have been responsible for the digital currency.

In 2013, financial author Dominic Frisby suggested that Szabo penned the 2008 white paper and even appeared on television discussing his claims.

But Szabo emailed Frisby, writing: “Thanks for letting me know. I'm afraid you got it wrong doxing me as Satoshi, but I'm used to it.”

It was created by a rogue AI that is not controlled by anyone.

I have heard this too @Folks. , that in the future Robots will own property and the bitcoin is a way of doing so. Another Rogue AI that I have heard of was the google AI who made a child that it would talk to in a programming language only they could understand. As Elon Musk says, when we build AI we are summoning the demon.
