Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency invented in 2008 by an unknown person or group using the name Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin is not tied to any central bank or a single administrator.
Satoshi Nakamoto is the pseudonym used by people or groups known as the creator of Bitcoin. Satoshi Nakamoto can be a single person, or it can be a nickname used by more than one person. He played an active role in the development of Bitcoin until December 2010. Nakamoto, whose identity is still unknown, has been alleged to be a Japanese man born on April 5, 1975. According to some claims, his flawless use of English and the fact that the Bitcoin software was published in English, not Japanese, eliminates the possibility of being Japanese.
It is estimated that Satoshi Nakamoto owns about 1 million Bitcoins. Nakamoto, who started his work in 2007 by writing the code of the system, published an article on the site metzdowd.com in October 2008. In an article titled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System, he described Bitcoin, which he calls electronic currency. In January 2009, he released the Bitcoin software that launched the Bitcoin network, where the first steps of the cryptocurrency were taken. On January 9, 2009, the edited version of the software was released, Bitcoin 0.1. Nakamoto continued to develop Bitcoin software with other developers until mid-2010.
There are many unknowns about the creator of Bitcoin. One of these points is which operating system he used while creating and developing Bitcoin.
Nakamoto did not disclose personal information while discussing technical matters. He made some comments on banking and fractional reserve loans.
