Satoshi Nakamoto is not a real person, although the name is extremely popular among bankers, traders or even hedge fund managers. Any person involved in banking or brokerage transactions has definitely came across this name at least once in their career. A famous scandal has also happened a few years ago in the US when banks accused Bitcoin of being not safe and easy to use for money laundering. The same FinCEN people that conceived the rules for Bitcoin and were totally against Bitcoin have now switched their careers in trading bitcoin or even worse in the Bitcoin consultancy business. Satoshi Nakamoto was to be found guilty of developing a currency that was against the state and the government although no one knew who this Satoshi Nakamoto really is. For sure speculations and investigations were made but nothing came up for real.
Bitcoin has started to gain power being a virtual currency that wasn’t controlled in any way by governments. Of course this was something to be taken into account and bad examples such as the famous Charlie Shrem and Silk Road trial appeared in the media. Funding secret organisations, terrorism or drug marketplaces was the only weapon used by FinCEN which is definitely supported by the big banks to fight Bitcoin. Satoshi Nakamoto is supposed to be a computer genius who was born in 1975 in Japan, the place where he still lives. Although a more in detail research has proven that Satoshi Nakamoto may not be japanese at all and probably more of a British origin no one can really tell exactly. For sure he is a briliant coder but in terms of his real identity, Satoshi Nakamoto was assimilated to people such as Hal Finney, Nick Szabo or even Dorian Nakamoto. The man who launched a real trend in crypto currency and a totally new way of investment is for sure a billionaire. Satoshi Nakamoto is supposed to worth more than 10 Billion $ in Bitcoins. The US regulator has also approved Bitcoin trading and marketplaces such as CME or CBOE have made the price go up to 15,500 $ for one Bitcoin.
