His Anonymity Makes Satoshi Nakamoto A Hero For The Cryptocurrency Space
Satoshi Nakamoto has been as mysterious as life itself. The individual or group who created the biggest asset of 21st Century, the Bitcoin, was quite selfless and big-hearted to go in total anonymity to save it.
Bitcoin is to Nakamoto what The Last Supper is to Leonardo da Vinci, Theory of Relativity is to Albert Einstein, or what Telephone is to Graham Bell. The only difference is the world knows who those great minds were, but not a pinch about Satoshi Nakamoto. It must have taken some courage and heart to give up the credit for a creation, which changed the world completely.
By far, Bitcoin is the biggest threat to the dominance of superpowers on traditional monetary systems. If Nakamoto were still around, he would have had to face several challenges, some even death threats. Cryptocurrencies are fast taking over global money transfers, retail payments, and much other traditional banking functions, which certainly is enough to irritate some big boy out there.
Over the years, several people have claimed to be Nakamoto, and sadly, most of those turned out to be fake. Craig Wright, for instance, has been claiming to be Satoshi Nakamoto for quite some time now, though his claim has been rejected by the majority of industry experts, including Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao.
In reality, the anonymity associated with Nakamoto has helped Bitcoin achieve the mountains that it has managed to. There have been speculations that Nakamoto was a just a pseudonym used by some intelligence agencies to dilute the authority of the US Dollar and its allied currencies. Some even claim the Nakamoto was killed. However, none of these bizarre claims have been confirmed.
So what should the real Nakamoto want? What should he do? Well, if he thought that it is best to stay underground, then it sure had to be. Nakamoto undisputedly knows Bitcoins, altcoins, and blockchain better than most. Being such a master inventor and going into anonymity, makes him a great hero.
Enthusiasts around the world thank him for being anonymous and letting the true meaning of decentralization prevail. Moreover, Nakamoto intended to create a world where a single individual or a state or a group cannot control the system, and he set the example by getting himself away from Bitcoin.
Oh, Nakamoto! Thou art a true Hero!
