Elon Musk thinks he knows who the real creator of bitcoin is

Will the identity of the creator of bitcoin be revealed soon? This could be the case, taking into account Elon Musk’s latest assertions. In an interview with artificial intelligence researcher Lex Fridman, posted online Tuesday, the Tesla boss spoke about the identity of the person behind Satoshi Nakamoto, the current pseudonym of the creators of bitcoin, reports Capital.


And his suspicions fell on … Nick Szabo, a global cryptocurrency expert. While admitting to not knowing for sure the identity of the creator of bitcoin, Elon Musk felt that Nick Szabo was the one who “seems to be more than anyone responsible for the ideas behind bitcoin”. “You can watch the development of ideas before bitcoin’s launch and see who wrote about those ideas,” the billionaire added.

All roads lead to Nick Szabo

The track evoked by Elon Musk follows on from other analyzes highlighting the role of Nick Szabo in the creation of bitcoin around 2008. In 2014, a team of linguistics researchers had notably pointed out similarities between the vocabulary of the expert and that used by Satoshi Nakamoto in the bitcoin white paper. “None of the other possible authors matched so well,” they said.


Likewise, in 2015, the New York Times had also attributed the creation of this cryptocurrency to Nick Szabo. Among the clues mentioned, it was put forward that the expert had already created in 1998 a cryptocurrency called “bit gold”. But for his part, the man has always denied being the inventor of bitcoin and blockchain technology.
