When reclusive photographer Rob Fossick’s mother dies, he is presented with an intriguing problem to solve – minutes before her death, he discovers that she was hoping to deliver a package to an enigmatic character called Mr Satoshi. So begins a quest that plunges him into the urban maelstrom of Tokyo. With the help of an octogenarian amateur detective; a beautiful ‘love hotel’ receptionist; and an ex-sumo wrestler obsessed with Dolly Parton, Rob edges closer to uncovering the mystery surrounding Mr Satoshi, and comes face to face with some demons of his own. 1.

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 invo 1.

Bitcoin is entirely a new idea, and it seems to be here to stay. It is not like any other thing that the world had seen in a very long time. In bitcoin, you will have access to one of the most inexpensive and fastest means of money transfer across international barriers. Via bitcoin, revolution has been birthed in commerce and the modern-day concept of money. The entire idea of bitcoin came to the fore in 2009, when Satoshi Nakamoto published a paper and also made bitcoin available as a free software project. The purpose of this work was to deliver bitcoin to the world as a new and better means of money transfer. He designed it as a system of online value transfer that is in support of a highly prospective Internet currency. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.

Decentralized cryptocurrency is produced by the entire cryptocurrency system collectively, at a rate which is defined when the system is created and which is publicly known. In centralized banking and economic systems such as the Federal Reserve System, corporate boards or governments control the supply of currency by printing units of fiat money or demanding additions to digital banking ledgers. In case of decentralized cryptocurrency, companies or governments cannot produce new units, and have not so far provided backing for other firms, banks, or corporate entities which hold asset value measured in it. The underlying technical system upon which decentralized cryptocurrencies are based was created by the group or individual known as Satoshi Nakamoto. As of September 2017, over a thousand cryptocurrency specifications ∃ most are similar to and derived from the first fully implemented decentralized cryptocurrency, bitcoin. Within cryptocurrency systems the safety, integrity and balance of ledgers is maintained by a community of mutually distrustful parties referred to as miners: members of the general public using their computers to help validate and timestamp transactions adding them to the ledger in accordance with a particular time-stamping scheme. Miners have a financial incentive to maintain the security of a cryptocurrency ledger. Most cryptocurrencies are designed to gradually decrease production of currency, placing an ultimate cap on the total amount of currency that will ever be in circulation, mimicking precious metals. Compared with ordinary currencies held by financial institutions or kept as cash on hand, cryptocurrencies can be more difficult for seizure by law enforcement. This difficulty is derived from leveraging cryptographic technologies. 1. Language: English.

Did she jump? Did she fall? Will she wake? On an ordinary Friday afternoon in the office, talented young lawyer Joy Stephens plummets forty feet onto a marble floor. In the shadow of this baffling event, the lives of those closest to her begin to collide and change in unexpected ways. There is Dennis, her disgraced husband, who finds consolation in books; her colleague Peter, whose refuge is a mix of hedonism and hard work; Barbara, Joy´s prickly PA, who´d be content if only she could get away to New York; and Samir, Joy´s hygiene-obsessed personal trainer, who escapes into exercise routines and other, stranger rituals. In a sparkling glass office in London´s Square Mile - a place bursting with flirtations, water cooler confrontations and dangerous amounts of abject boredom - each of them is forced to question what they´ve witnessed, and to face past moments that have defined Joy´s life, as well as their own.Jonathan Lee was born in 1981 and lives in London.

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.
