On Tuesday, in a podcast by artificial intelligence researcher Lex Fridman posted on YouTube, Elon Musk was asked what he thought about the true identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, to which he replied to Lex saying “You’re not interested in the launch of bitcoin.” You can look at earlier ideas and find out who wrote about those ideas.”
They don’t stop here. He further introduced some theories. Musk said that while he “obviously” doesn’t know who created bitcoin, [लेकिन] Szabo’s principles appear to be fundamental to building the world’s leading cryptocurrency.”
According to a report from Business Insider, in 2014, a team of linguistics researchers matched the writing patterns of Jabo and 10 other potential creators to Nakamoto’s bitcoin whitepaper. He found that these two are almost identical. The team noted that there are linguistic similarities between Jabo’s writing and the Bitcoin whitepaper, and that Jabo’s writing is the most matching of all the other creators. Elon Musk has also mentioned this in the podcast.
Bitcoin was first introduced in October 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto, but to this day no one knows whether the name is associated with a single person or a group of several people.
