The name of the person (or persons) who developed Bitcoin, and who, as of 2021, remains anonymous. Although clearly a Japanese name, articles by Nakamoto are written in flawless English. Coincidentally, there are several people living in America with the name Satoshi Nakamoto.
Australian computer scientist Craig Wright claims that he and business partner Dave Kleiman are the inventors, although this is disputed.
Cryptography pioneer Nick Szabo, who designed a decentralized digital currency in the 1990s has also been hailed as Nakamoto (NS initials possibly reversed?), but he denies it.
Software engineer Hal Finney was the first person to receive a Bitcoin transaction, and his writing style has been deemed close to that of Nakamoto. Finney died in 2014, and interestingly, his body was cryogenically frozen. Finney's Los Angeles neighbor was actually Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto, who also denies being the Bitcoin inventor.
In 2011, software developer Gavin Andresen took over the project from Nakamoto, and Andresen's writing style is also considered very similar.
No matter who Satoshi Nakamoto is or was, within a little more than a decade, the market cap of his creation briefly topped one trillion dollars in 2021. See Bitcoin
