- @Satoshi, an account purporting to be associated with the presumed pseudonymous person(s) who developed Bitcoin, tweeted on October 2.
- The user commits to revealing new insights and discussions left out of the original BTC whitepaper.
- This is the first time the account has shown activity in five years, since 2018.
- Some say the account is controlled by Craig Steven Wright, and that he is joking around.
@Satoshi, a verified account on giant social media platform X (formerly Twitter) has resurfaced after almost five years of dormancy, sparking conversation as community members try to interpret the intention and possibly pinpoint the real identity behind the user. It comes at an interesting time, when Bitcoin (BTC) price is rising, akin to its history of performance in October.
@Satoshi resurfaces after five years
@Satoshi, the handle for a verified account under Satoshi Nakamoto, has tweeted for the first time in five years, describing Bitcoin as a “predicate machine.” The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines predicate as a term designating a property or relation. More broadly, “something which is affirmed or denied concerning an argument of a proposition." There are over 3.2 million views on the post already. The last tweet before this was on October 31, 2018.
Bitcoin is a predicate machine. Over the following months, we shall explore different aspects that were not explicitly contained within the white paper. These aspects are all parts of bitcoin, and are important. Some of these ideas were touched upon in the early years; now is…— Satoshi Nakamoto (@satoshi) October 2, 2023
The user commits to spending the next few months exploring additional important issues about Bitcoin, left out of the original Bitcoin whitepaper. Notably, Satoshi Nakamoto is the name used by the presumed pseudonymous person(s) that developed Bitcoin. The individual(s) also authored the BTC whitepaper before creating and deploying its original reference implementation.
However, whether or not the account on X @Satoshi belongs to him remains unknown, considering nobody actually knows who the real Satoshi Nakamoto is. It should be noted that this is the first time since 2018 that the account has tweeted, a move that has sparked the interest of players, individuals, and organizations alike, including Kraken Exchange as users try to determine the individual behind the account.
Some platform users have associated the account with one Craig Steven Wright, considering both accounts going live in 2018.
