1. Just How Much is The Creator of Bitcoin Worth?
The person who created Bitcoin is very mysterious.
He called himself Satoshi Nakamoto, and was of course the first person to start creating and storing Bitcoins, and it’s said he’s worth close to half a billion dollars. That’s 500 million!
However, most of those riches are in Bitcoin, and it may be a lot easier said than done to quietly turn that quantity of coins into cash. A lot of people would notice since Bitcoin has a very observant community.
But who says he hasn’t already started cashing out slowly, and is already a millionaire?
The big mystery is that people don’t know who Satoshi Nakamoto is. Whether that’s his real name (unlikely), whether it is in fact a team of people… some people even believe that Satoshi Nakamoto is a front for the government!
In 2014 Newsweek revealed that they had uncovered exactly who Satoshi was and it was a front page story. However, this turned out to be an ordinary guy who lived in a modest house, and hadn’t even heard of Bitcoin, so the accuracy of the Newsweek story has been hotly contested!
But the simple fact is – whoever Satoshi Nakamoto really is, he’s half way to being a billionaire!
