By now, many people around the world for many years have been seeking the answer to one question:

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto?

The author of the Bitcoin manifesto hasn’t been around since 2010. All we know is that he claimed to be born in Japan in 1975.

Nevertheless, all the evidence points to the contrary. There are no signs of the Japanese language in the bitcoin software code. The article, which started the buzz, was written in perfect English. What is more, is that so-called Satoshi is sure to be someone of British, Australian, or New-Zealand origin, due to the usage of such phrases like “bloody hard” in his postings.

Also, Nakamoto used to post at various coding forums. And apparently some Swiss guy found out that Satoshi was never online between 5 and 11 a.m. GMT. Which means that if he really lived in Japan, his sleeping hours should be from 2 to 8 p.m. So, Not very normal for an industrious Asian guy.

You know, I have my own theory of where he might live. I, for one, usually hit the pillow at around 1 or 2 a.m. Which is average for a person of my age and occupation. So, I think, our fellow lives somewhere in this time zone. And this microscopic spot is sure to be an ideal place for a person like him.


It’s a set of small islands in the Caribbean, which belongs to the British Crown, and it could be where Satoshi’s Commonwealth language peculiarities could come from. It’s a nice tropical island with an everlasting summer and a magnificent blue ocean. Lastly, Anguilla is a famous tax haven. And someone like Nakamoto would probably want to keep his cash in the dark.

Nice, isn’t it?

In fact, Satoshi is known to have collected a million bitcoins in his personal wallet. It’s a lot of money, but in the real world he has to deal with dollars, euros, or other world currencies, so this paradise island with offshore legislation would come in handy.

As for cryptocurrencies at large, you don’t have to invent complicated cover strategies. Everyone in the system will see you performing a transaction, but no one would ever disclose your personal information, because you are doing so under a vague nickname. Like Satoshi Nakamoto, for example.

Is There a Crypto Founder Who Doesn’t Hide his Name?

Among all the cryptocurrencies, the second rated in popularity is Ethereum. It was introduced to the market by Vitalik Buterin, a prodigal Canadian programmer of Russian origin.

Unlike BTC, Ethereum is not just a currency. It’s a system of smart contracts which is operated with the use of its own internal token called Ether. It means, that you can make contracts directly in a blockchain.

No state regulations. Total transparency and Total security.

If Bitcoin established the new concept of money, Ethereum has opened the road to the crypto-stock market.
