Did Shinichi Mochizuki Invent Bitcoin? - Business Insider

Satoshi Nakamoto: The origin

Satoshi Nakamoto is the name that has been assigned to the fictional person who created and designed all Bitcoin protocol and software in 2008, the year in which the network and the first units of coins were created. The identity is still a complete mystery and what is known as Satoshi Nakamoto could be a pseudonym, a person or a group of people. This is one of the biggest mysteries in the world of the cryptocurrencies.
There are several journalistic investigations, groups and individuals that have tried to discover their true identity that until now is a mystery, even the CIA has stated that it cannot deny or confirm the existence of this individual.
There are 9 possible candidates that could be behind the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto:
  1. Vili Lehdonvirta.
He is a professor at the Institute of Information Technology in Helsinki, Finland. A New Yorker journalist, during the search for the identity of Nakamoto, adjudged him to be the creator of Bitcoin because during 2001 he used to program virtual games and coins; however, he has denied having any relationship with this project.
  1. Shinichi Mochizuki.
This mathematician from the University of Kyoto, Japan, got to be one of the suspects because he solved the ABC conjecture, this gave sufficient proof for Ted Nelson to consider him Nakamoto in 2013. Mochizuki denied being this person seven months later.
  1. Dorian Nakamoto.
This brilliant computer engineer was identified as the creator of Bitcoin by Leah McGrath Goodman, after that in an interview where, according to the journalist's words, he had admitted being the creator of the project. Nakamoto denied having any connection to work during an interview with The Associted Press.
  1. Nick Szabo.
The researcher Skye Gray in 2013 through a stylometric analysis determined that Szabo was the person that best suited the profile of Satoshi Nakamoto, who is a computer and cryptographic. Even though Szabo developed a pre-Bitcoin coin called BitGold, he denied being the creator of Bitcoin as we know it.
  1. Hal Finney.
Although he died in 2014, Finney has been the protagonist of many rumors related to the invention of Bitcoin. While he was alive, Finney denied his complete participation with the creation of the cryptocurrency, this action is awarded to him because he was the first person to receive a BTC transaction from the same creator.
  1. Craig Wright.
Wright is considered the creator of Bitcoin thanks to the fact that he attributed himself this creation on May 2nd, 2006. Although there is a lot of evidence that deny this fact, this man is known as the "FakeSatoshi" in the networks social.
  1. Neal King, Vladimir Oksman y Charles Bry.
The journalist Adam Penenberg in 2013 presented evidence that the trio was a fake person that is Satoshi Nakamoto. This theory originates because these three people applied for a patent in 2008 to register "Computationally impractical to reserve" and this document was used in the official document published by Nakomoto in October of that year. The bitcoin.org domain was registered three days after the patent application. But King, Oksman and Bry totally denied this fact.
  1. Elon Musk.
Musk is nominated by Sahil Gupta to be Satoshi Nakamoto due to his background in Economics and his experience in history and innovation of many softwares. Musk immediately denied any relationship, but still Gupta says he is the one behind the Satoshi identity.
  1. Government agencies.
Although there is no proof that a government agency could have created Nakamoto as a fake person, this is a conspiracy theory that points to several organizations and countries as the creators of the character; the most famous is United States.
There are multiple theories and many people pointed out, but really, who knows the true identity of the creator of this network? Will we ever know?

BTC conspiracy you haven't heard:

Shin'ichi or Shinichi is a very common masculine Japanese given name.
Different kanji that are pronounced "shin" (しん?) are combined with the kanji for "one" (一 ichi?, いち)" to give different names:
真一, "true, one" 信一, "belief, one" 伸一, "extend, one" 進一, "progress, one" 新一, "new, one" 慎一, "humility, one" 晋一, "advance, one" 紳一, "gentleman, one" 鎮一, "tranquilize, one" 愼一, "care, one" 
I need to always entertain possibilities that most people will immediately reject without consideration. Perhaps I am wrong, but I "skimmed" the ABC conjecture and it is my understanding that it is extremely relevant to bitcoin through essentially quantum computing (ie Mochizuki's work seems most immediately applicable to "software"). So just as a mental exercise:
Prove to me Shinichi Mochizuki is not a pseudonym.

Aug. 30, 1999 Initiation of this directory, "Goldbach_Programs". This is just for some recreational mathematics stuff that may be of occasional interest. I recently read the novel "Uncle Petros and the Goldbach Conjecture". In the story Petros, but at a time many years in the past, wonders about whether or not, in particular, the number 2100 satisfies GB (so that it is a sum of 2 primes). Nowadays it is possible to compute answers to questions of this sort for numbers of that size fairly easily. As I read the novel and thought about that specific question I remembered that quite a few years ago, just while doing recreational work/play with numbers, I had developed a moderately efficient program to search for the next prime larger than a given odd number. And I realized that this program, which I had on file as a MATHEMATICA program, could be applied to the problem challenge of checking out 2100 in relation to the Goldbach Conjecture."
Wiki ABC conjecture:
The abc conjecture (also known as the Oesterlé–Masser conjecture) is a conjecture in number theory, first proposed by Joseph Oesterlé (1988) and David Masser (1985) as an integer analogue of the Mason–Stothers theorem for polynomials. The conjecture is stated in terms of three positive integers, a, b and c (hence the name), which have no common factor and satisfy a + b = c. If d denotes the product of the distinct prime factors of abc, the conjecture essentially states that d is usually not much smaller than c. In other words: if a and b are composed from large powers of primes, then c is usually not divisible by large powers of primes. The precise statement is given below.
The abc conjecture has already become well known for the number of interesting consequences it entails. Many famous conjectures and theorems in number theory would follow immediately from the abc conjecture. Goldfeld (1996) described the abc conjecture as "the most important unsolved problem in Diophantine analysis".
"He knew number theory like mad. Diophantine equations were his love," recalled Siegal" None of us knew anything about them, but he was working on them then."[49] pg.45"
David bohm extended quantum physics with his own mathemtaical language, I have long sought (ok for months on a couch looked for) Nash's language as it seems clear to me he has had a break through in understanding that would create it. I don't know Shinchini, but the material seems incredibly consistent as an extension of Nash's works and especially on Riemann manifolds.
There is more, but I don't know, its just a thought, if it proves to be true there is interesting stuff. If its not then I shouldn't mention it all. What is interesting about the "exercise" is that it puts Ted Nelson's conjecture into a fitting context as well as the "mood" of his video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emDJTGTrEm0
It would be likely then that Nash/Shinichi consulted Ted at some point. Whatever, it would be awesome if it were true.
As a thread saver if this is rediculous check out a crossection of Shinichi's thoughts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uDLAuEloZg

The most obvious argument against Shinichi Mochizuki being Satoshi Nakamoto is a glaring lack of known background in computers, coding, and cypherpunk ethos and knowledge.
