Was the first reply to the Bitcoin White Paper Satoshi himself?


There have been a slew of rumours concerning Satoshi Nakamoto’s identity since his disappearance in 2011.

Potential possibilities include Hal Finney, Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto, Nick Szabo, and Craig Wright (even if CSW is the main person pushing that last theory).

Gerald Votta, the Director of Gamefi Investigation at Quantum Economics, believes he has discovered Satoshi’s genuine identity after months of research. Votta highlighted compelling circumstantial evidence that he believes establishes the relationship in a new research article was published on Nov. 17 by Canadian cryptographer James A. Donald.

In 2008, Donald was the first person to comment on the Bitcoin White Paper. Which sparked Votta’s curiosity. The “nearly immediate” timing was “extremely suspect”, according to Votta, prompting him to “investigate Donald’s life further”.

This isn’t the first time to propose this hypothesis

Donald also matched the bill perfectly. According to Votta: “Donald knew his way around computers, programming, and cryptography. As well, he knew his way around economics, history, and the law. His own remarks, on the other hand, were important in establishing a link between him and Satoshi Nakamoto.”

This isn’t the first time to propose this hypothesis. Back in 2014, a forum post on a Bitcoin forum by member Bruno Kucinskas pointed to the same data concerning the quick response, igniting a controversy. One user claimed that the timestamp differed between archives, while another said that the time zones were not the same as those proposed, casting doubt on the amount of time between the post and the response.

It’s also possible that Satoshi and Donald had a private conversation before publicising the inquiry and response. Votta stated that he has read all of the rebuttals, but that his proof “speaks for itself”. He went on to say that Donald’s initiative Crypto Kong’s website “is basically Bitcoin embodied”.

Crypto Kong is a software application that employs elliptic curve cryptography to electronically sign documents, according to Votta’s research. “This specific software is frighteningly comparable to the core premise of Bitcoin”, he added. Invoking Votta’s blog post on the site’s information and the White Paper.

Crypto Kong’s information is available on the echeque website, and Donald’s email address was “james@echeque.com.” At least once, Votta claims, Donald emailed Satoshi from this address.

If Satoshi was Donald, why would he have a two-way discussion with himself?

To add to the proof, on the echeque website’s main Crypto Kong page, there is a minimised sample of Kong on the right side of the screen with a digital signature that matches the one supplied to Satoshi Nakamoto up to the 34th character.

If Satoshi was Donald, why would he have a two-way discussion with himself? This was a ruse, according to Votta, to “keep the anonymity and stimulate alternative views on Bitcoin”.

He further backs up his assertion by examining Satoshi’s written language. “I remembered Satoshi by Donald’s conversations”, he wrote.

Satoshi’s “strong grasp of not just the English language, but also North American English”, according to him, indicates that he was likely born, raised, or educated in the United States, the United Kingdom, or a former British territory.

Satoshi, for example, uses the terms “Chancellor” and “favour” in the British spelling.

Similarly, he was able to link Satoshi to Donald by using the word “Chaumian” in an unusual way. On August 3, 2003, Donald used the word in an email answer regarding Digicash patents. And Satoshi used it on February 11, 2009, in an email response.

And with that, the puzzle was solved

The chances of two people having these similar qualifications, a thorough understanding of North American language and culture, and virtually the same White Paper are astronomically improbable”, Votta added.

Gerard, along with VP of content Charles Bovaird, “ensured correct research processes and information source”, according to Quantum Economics founder Mati Greenspan.
