Cardano’s Charles Hoskinson believes that the only person that is fitting the profile of the Bitcoin creators Satoshi Nakamoto is pretty obvious.
During a surprise recent AMA session on YouTube, he revealed that he’s been narrowing down his search to a single person because he’s definitely the only one who fits this part.
“I’ve been very vocal lately on this. I think that first, it doesn’t matter, but second, it’s probably Adam Back. If you look at the preponderance of the evidence, Occam’s razor applies, and the most likely answer usually is, and there’s no mystique or magic there, but he just fits the profile. You’re looking for somebody who’s in their 40s to 50s who created Bitcoin in 2008,” he said.
He continued and posted this: “That would fit Adam. English education, grammar, all that stuff, the right computer science background, exactly the right credentials you’d look for. You probably can get pretty far with code stylometry towards validating that.”
Just to refresh your memory, Adam Back is the co-founder and chief executive of blockchain technology company Blockstream. More than that, also a longtime cypherpunks member and is referenced in the Bitcoin whitepaper.
