- On December 12, 2010, Bitcoin’s anonymous creator posted for the final time on the BitcoinTalk forum.
- No one has seen or heard from him since.
- There are a number of reasons why Bitcoin’s creator would want to remain anonymous.
Satoshi Nakamoto (who could be a man, woman or group of people—no one really knows) made their final post on December 12, 2010, before logging off the next day to never return to the online world.
Nakamoto’s final post on December 12 was about preventing Denial-of-Server (DoS) attacks to the Bitcoin network.
10 years later and Bitcoin’s price has touched new highs—thanks in part to investment from institutional investors and endorsement from high-profile companies. But the guy behind the technology is nowhere to be found.
The creator of the world’s biggest cryptocurrency has always been anonymous, and though there have been many theories over the years about who he could be, his identity and whereabouts are still unknown.
One thing is certain, though, he’s done a very good job at keeping his identity a complete mystery.
