Satoshi Nakamoto is the name used by the person or people who designed Bitcoin and created its original reference implementation. As part of the implementation, they also devised the first blockchain database. In the process they were the first to solve the double-spending problem for digital currency. They were active in the development of Bitcoin up until December 2010. On a P2P Foundation profile, Nakamoto claimed to be a man living in Japan, born on 5 April 1975. Speculation about the true identity of Nakamoto has mostly focused on a number of cryptography and computer science experts of non-Japanese descent, living in the United States and various European countries. Satoshi Nakamoto also created the bitcointalk forum, posted the first message in 2009 under the pseudonym satoshi. In October 2008, Nakamoto published a paper on the cryptography mailing list at metzdowd.com describing the Bitcoin digital currency. It was titled "Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System". In January 2009, Nakamoto released the first Bitcoin software that launched the network and the first units of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, called Bitcoins. Satoshi Nakamoto released the Version 0.1 of Bitcoin software on Sourceforge on 9 January 2009. Nakamoto claimed that work on the writing of the code began in 2007. The inventor of Bitcoin knew that due to its nature, the core design would have to be able to support a broad range of transaction types. The implemented solution enabled specialized codes and data fields from the start through the use of a predicative script. Nakamoto created a website with the domain name bitcoin.org and continued to collaborate with other developers on the Bitcoin software until mid-2010. Around this time, he handed over control of the source code repository and network alert key to Gavin Andresen, transferred several related domains to various prominent members of the Bitcoin community, and stopped his involveme 1.

Bitcoin may seem complicated at first, but is actually very simple to use. As long as the user is careful in securing their digital wallet and uses the system correctly, Bitcoin can be a very simple way to send and receive funds. While the first idea of cryptocurrency such as this was described by Wei Dai in 1998, the first real prototype, Bitcoin, was created by Satoshi Nakamoto, a name used by someone whose real identity is still unknown since first publishing the paper, "Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System", on October 31, 2008 to a cryptography mailing list. Bitcoin was first actually implemented in January of 2009. It was released as an open-source code, and anyone could create their own version of cryptocurrency using this information. Satoshi Nakamoto stepped down in 2010, and Gavin Andresen took over the reigns. Andresen then worked to ensure that Bitcoin was completely decentralized, meaning that no single entity has control over the system. Andresen said, "As soon as Satoshi stepped back and threw the project onto my shoulders, one of the first things I did was try to decentralize that. So, if I get hit by a bus, it would be clear that the project would go on." 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Moore.

Andrew O'Hagan issues three bulletins from the porous border between cyberspace and the 'real world.' 'Ghosting' introduces us to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, whose autobiography the author ghostwrites with unforeseen consequences. 'The Invention of Ronnie Pinn' finds the author using the identity of a deceased man to construct an entirely new one in cyberspace. Finally, 'The Satoshi Affair' chronicles the strange case of Craig Wright, the Australian web developer who may or may not be the mysterious inventor of Bitcoin. 1. Language: English.

The starship Starfarer is poised for our first voyage to another star system. The Alien Contact Team - physicist Victoria Fraser MacKenzie, geneticist Stephen Thomas Gregory, geographer Satoshi Lono, and alien contact specialist J.D. Sauvage - and the rest of the faculty and staff prepare for humanity's most ambitious exploratory expedition. But the world has changed. A new regime orders the vessel to be abandoned. It will be turned into an instrument of war. What do the Starfarers do? They do what any red-blooded Alien Contact Team would do. They steal the starship. 1. Language: English.

Bitcoin is a digital currency and also a digital payment system. It is widely used all over the world as a cryptocurrency and is accepted as a means of exchange in trade, investment, and savings. Bitcoin was invented by someone by the alias Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009. His real name is not known. Some suspect it was created by a group of programmers by the same pseudo-name. However, this currency has gained worldwide acceptance and is very popular due to its many benefits. Here is a preview of what you'll learn about....

How does the bitcoin protocol work? A person cannot mix indefinite bitcoins. The bitcoin protocol states that there will only be 21 million bitcoins to be produced by the miners. These bitcoins will then be subdivided into smaller bits. The smallest bit is called "satoshi" named after the bitcoin founder and the divisible amount is 100 millionth of a bitcoin. Bitcoin currency is based on mathematical formulas unlike our conventional currency that is based on gold and silver. Mathematics is used to generate or "mine" bitcoins. The software programs containing these mathematical formulas are made available to everyone. This means that anyone can access these formulas to ensure that it serves its purpose. 1.

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and digital payment system invented by an unknown programmer, or a group of programmers, under the name Satoshi Nakamoto. It was released as open-source software in 2009. The system is peer-to-peer, and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary. These transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain. Since the system works without a central repository or single administrator, bitcoin is called the first decentralized digital currency. Besides being created as a reward for mining, bitcoin can be exchanged for other currencies, products, and services in legal or black markets. As of February 2015, over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepted bitcoin as payment. According to research produced by Cambridge University in 2017, there are 2.9 to 5.8 million unique users using a cryptocurrency wallet, most of them using bitcoin. 1. Language: English.

In this guide, you will learn all about Bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrency, how they work, why they exist, and what kind of technology is behind Bitcoin. It wasn't too long ago when people started hearing the words "Bitcoin" and "cryptocurrencies".Few people outside of the crypto-communities knew what they were and many thought it was just another fad that was bound to fail in a few years or so. The value of one bitcoin was just a few cents then so obviously it wasn't worth a lot. For this reason, it was ignored by the masses. There were far more profitable investments one could make, after all.Those who invested sums of money on the new digital currency either believed in the system proposed by its founder, Satoshi Nakamoto, or they simply wanted to see how it works. 1.
