Satoshi Nakamoto: Bitcoin Creator unmasked again

A British news site wants to have revealed the mystery of Satoshi Nakamoto by Stilo-based-analysis. Behind the Pseudonym, this is for the basic Bitcoin White Paper responsible, to hide the developer Gavin Andresen.

Since then, an anonymous author published in the year 2009, the Bitcoin White Paper, the question is, who is behind it. No wonder, because in the nine-page document with the title Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System is for the first time, explains the principle of the Blockchain, the Foundation of most of the crypto currencies and decentralized technologies. The author is someone who renounced since its invention and has isolated? It is the Pseudonym of a group of developers who have written the Paper together? Or the Bitcoin inventor is hiding in the forefront of the crypto scene? If we want to give the latest revelations of Faith, the latter is most likely.

Gavin Andresen, Satoshi Nakamoto Is?

Gavin Andresen, a software developer from Massachusetts, and since the beginning, in Bitcoin involved. In 2010, appointed the Person behind Satoshi Nakamoto him to the chief developer of the reference implementation of the Bitcoin Software. Andresen also worked for several years for the programming and maintenance of the core code responsible. In 2014, he gave up this Post and devoted himself less to the code tinkering and more of the work of his co-founded the Bitcoin Foundation.

He has already unmasked once Satoshi Nakamoto “”: 2016, he named the Australian computer scientist Craig Steven Wright as the true Bitcoin founder. In retrospect, he regretted it, however, to have the “Who-is-Satoshi-game” involved. The assumption that he himself is behind the ideas of the Blockchain and Bitcoin, so it is at least plausible.

How does the Stilo test analysis?

Stilo test a number of methods to identify an unknown author using the word statistics on the basis of his writing style. It is applied for over a hundred years, for example, the anonymous authors identify literary masterpieces. The approaches have evolved with the technology.

The magazine ZyCrypto to have done the latest revelation, uses the so-called “Eder’s bootstrapped stylometry method”. In this method, which is described in the article in detail, compared with the analysts, the White Paper with contributions from Satoshi and other texts of the first Bitcoin-authors. Accordingly, the original has the document close textual affinities with Satoshi’s E-Mails, GitHub-text by Gavin Andresen and forum posts of Satoshi. That Andresen Satoshi’s forums texts “writes”, values of the analysts as evidence for the assumption that he and Satoshi are one and the same Person.

And what’s Gavin Andresen says the revelations? On Twitter, he responded with the statement, its opinion on the reliability of the Stilo test deteriorated after reading the analysis significantly. The guesswork out to Satoshi Nakamo goes on.
