Charles Hoskinson, CEO and founder of Cardano, IOHK (Input Output Hong Kong), is one of the most famous and remarkable people in the blockchain space. He recently expressed that the mystery surrounding Satoshi Nakamoto could be solved.
The secret of Satoshi Nakamoto
Cardano’s founder said in an interview that Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin, could be identified. He assured that although he doesn’t know who the inventor of Bitcoin is, it is possible to assess it by stylometry. This is a term used to analyze the handwriting used by various criminalists and historians.
However, instead of analyzing the old posts from the Satoshi forum, Hoskinson suggests comparing the Bitcoin code with other open source projects.
“What you can do is apply style techniques to this code and apply it to all open source projects that have ever been written, and there is a very high probability that a match between this code and another code will be found and then temporarily it can be tracked. You can probably get a very good idea of who that person could be. “
So the secret of Satoshi Nakamoto could be revealed.
According to Hoskinson, Nakamoto was probably trained in the United Kingdom or the United States. and be an academic between the ages of 40 and 50.
The IOHK CEO bases this assumption on the fact that the Bitcoin script is based on a language called Forth, which is very unusual and was mainly used in computer science classes in England and the eastern United States. .
I am not interested in knowing who he is
Charles Hoskinson also stated that since Bitcoin has been working perfectly since 2012, he is not interested in knowing who Satoshi Nakamoto is. He also argued that many people claim to be Satoshi because it gives them special prestige..
Code is “too academic”
During the interview, it was also found that Nakamoto was probably an academic developer rather than a professional because the code was “too academic”. A professional would have done a cleaner job, as Hoskinson emphasized.
He also talked about crypto
The interview was very dynamic as he not only talked about the secret of Satoshi Nakamoto but also gave some opinions about the behavior of the market. Hoskinson is convinced that digital currencies will stay here.
Think of crypto as a significant asset class. First, because young people prefer it. This is because the majority of under-30s have cryptocurrencies in place of a stock or a bond.
Second, because it safeguards the functioning of the global banking system.
If you’re afraid of a global recession, or that banks are becoming unstable, or that the central bank’s monetary policy is bad in your country or broader, buying Bitcoin or crypto is a safeguard against it.
