YOU CAN NOT KILL BITCOIN’S FOUNDING MYTH: SATOSHI NAKAMOTO
In a time of universal surveillance, being anonymous is a revolutionary act.
They often say that you come to Bitcoin for the technology and hang around for the drama. Yesterday there was plenty on display. From a death threat to a new message from the hacked Satoshi Nakamoto’s account on the now famous p2pfoundation pages. All fun and games, but the hackers claim to know Satoshi’s identity.
There is little doubt that the hackers have access to the actual account. As much was shown by a screenshot of the account’s inbox and by forwarded emails to a Bitcoin developer dating as far back as 2011. It is unlikely however that the emails within that account reveal any information about Satoshi’s identity.
