Elon Musk reveals who might be the inventor of Bitcoin

Cryptocurrency influencer Elon Musk thinks he knows who is behind the name Satoshi Nakamoto.

Tesla boss and cryptocurrency influencer Elon Musk has commented on a podcast about who he thinks could be the inventor of Bitcoin.

Cryptocurrency expert and computer scientist Nick Szabo is said to be behind the nickname Satoshi Nakamoto, as Musk tells Business Insider.

“You can look at the evolution of ideas before Bitcoin was introduced and see who wrote about those ideas,” Musk said. The Tesla billionaire said that although he “clearly” does not know exactly who created Bitcoin, Szabo’s theories seem to be fundamental to the creation of cryptocurrency. “He contributed to the development of ideas more than anyone,” says Musk.

There are many myths and rumors about the inventor of Bitcoin. For years, the media, but also the people on the scene, have tried to reveal the true identity of the person who, like “Satoshi Nakamoto”, wrote the concept of Bitcoin in 2008 in the form of a white paper. A man of the same name living in California has always denied being behind the text.

Nakamoto’s true identity remains unclear to this day. Musk is not the first to suspect Szabo. New York Times reporter Nathaniel Popper also stated in 2015 that a significant number of Bitcoin entrepreneurs and experts suspect Szabo is the author of the white paper. Szabo himself has always denied this.
