To this day, Satoshi Nakamoto is still one of the biggest mysteries of Bitcoin, because people have conducted extensive searches to uncover the identity of the creator. Eleven years ago, on December 12, 2010, anonymous blockchain programmers (or multiple programmers) left the last message to the crypto community, emphasizing that “there is more work to be done [denial-of-service] from. “
Satoshi Nakamoto’s legacy: introducing Bitcoin, launching the network, and providing reasonable advice
About 11 years ago, on December 12, 2010, the inventor of Bitcoin left the community and never returned. After Satoshi Nakamoto left the community, there were several so-called emails. According to reports, the creator of Bitcoin at the time sent letters to the developers Mike Hearn and Gavin Anderson.Satoshi Nakamoto first appeared 13 years ago when the inventor Publish This Bitcoin white paper Halloween 2008 (October 31). In terms of the number of days, Satoshi Nakamoto spent about 772 days, or just over 2 years, communicating with new members of the crypto community.
So what did Satoshi Nakamoto do in these 772 days? The creator of Bitcoin first introduced the invention to the world and sent about 16 emails about peer-to-peer electronic cash paper. These introductory emails have been posted to an encrypted mailing list hosted on metzdowd.com.Satoshi Nakamoto Email 17 Seven days after Satoshi Nakamoto launched the cryptocurrency network, the news on metzdowd.com was released. The 17th email was published on January 8, 2009 and is titled “Bitcoin v0.1 released. “
There is strong evidence that A single entity starts the network, assuming that the single miner is Satoshi Nakamoto.One Mining simulation Data released last year indicated that Satoshi Nakamoto may have mined 1.1 million bitcoins using a high-end personal computer (PC) using the Windows operating system.If Satoshi Nakamoto is alive and can visit this Bitcoin, This cryptocurrency inventor may be one of the richest people on the planet.It is estimated that Satoshi Nakamoto has mined anywhere between 750,000 and 1.1 million Bitcoin In these 772 days.
In addition to the introduction Bitcoin white paper As well as subsequent emails, Satoshi Nakamoto provided suggestions to community members and often talked with developers during the two years of the inventor’s reign. Over the years, people have been putting together Satoshi Nakamoto’s famous sayings and suggestions to understand the true meaning of this inventor.Satoshi Nakamoto Something said like: “[Bitcoin is] If we can explain it correctly, then it would be very attractive to liberals. However, I am better at code rather than text. The creator of Bitcoin also said:
The fundamental problem with traditional currencies is all the trust needed to make it work. It must be believed that the central bank will not devalue the currency, but the history of legal tender is full of destruction of this trust.
Kick the Wasp Nest and release a quick build
Satoshi Discuss technical concepts Just like a hypothetical system called Bitdns, Eventually lead to Create Namecoin and merge mining.When WikiLeaks and Julian Assange appeared, Satoshi Nakamoto was also nearby Decided to use Bitcoin After the website was blocked by finance.When someone said that the Bitcoin community should “push it” through donations from WikiLeaks, Satoshi Nakamoto totally disagree.
“No, don’t’bring it.’ The project needs to be gradually developed so that the software can be strengthened along the way. I call on WikiLeaks not to try to use Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a small Beta community in its infancy. Nakamoto emphasized that except Outside of change, you will not accept more, and the heat you bring may destroy us at this stage.
Some people believe that WikiLeaks’ use of Bitcoin in 2010 may have disturbed Satoshi Nakamoto, so that the inventor left.Before Satoshi Nakamoto’s last e-mail on December 12, the 11th day before yesterday, Satoshi Nakamoto complained that WikiLeaks had adopted Bitcoin.
“It would be nice to get this kind of attention in any other situation. WikiLeaks kicked the hornet’s nest, and the swarm rushed towards us,” Satoshi Nakamoto Said at the time.
The next day was the final message from Satoshi Nakamoto to the entire community. The December 12th news is important because the cryptocurrency inventor provided a quick build and told developers that there is more work to be done in denial of service (DoS) attacks.
“There is more work to be done in terms of DoS, but I am quickly building what I currently have in case I need it, and then try more complex ideas. The version is 0.3.19,” Satoshi explained that day. Satoshi Nakamoto added:
– Added some DoS controls. As Gavin and I have clearly stated before, the software is not resistant to DoS attacks at all. This is an improvement, but there are still more attacks than I can count. I leave the -limitfreerelay part as a switch for now, if you need it, it will be there. – Removed the “Safe Mode” alert. The “Safe Mode” alarm is a temporary measure after the 0.3.9 overflow error. We can say that we want users to use “-disablesafemode” to run, but it is best not to use it for appearance. It was never intended as a long-term function. Security mode can still be triggered by seeing longer (larger total PoW) invalid blockchains.
After this news, Satoshi Nakamoto never spoke to the public and the Bitcoin community through forum messages. There must be some people who claimed to be Satoshi Nakamoto and made the news after a forum post on bitcointalk.org on December 12. However, nothing subsequently proved to be reliable, and so far, no one has been able to prove that they invented Bitcoin.
The forum post on December 12 was Satoshi Nakamoto’s last message to the new crypto community, and it is probably also Satoshi Nakamoto’s way of saying goodbye.
