The Collected Writings of Bitcoin Creator Satoshi Nakamoto

The Book of Satoshi

"Have you, like the rest of the world, speculated as to the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, anonymous creator of Bitcoin? The world's first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin went online in 2009 and has since revolutionized our concepts of currency and money. Not supported by any government or central bank, completely electronic, Bitcoin is a virtual currency based on advanced cryptographic systems. Like the currency he created, the identity of Bitcoin's creator Satoshi Nakamoto is virtual, existing only online. The Nakamoto persona, which may represent an individual or a group, exists only in the online publications that introduced and explained Bitcoin during its earliest days. Here, collected and professionally published for the first time are the essential writings that detail Bitcoin's creation. Included are: Satoshi Nakamoto Emails and Posts on Computer Forums Presented in Chronological Order; Bitcoin Fundamentals Presented in Layman's Terms; Bitcoin's Potential and Profound Economic Implications; The Seminal Paper Which Started It All. The Book of Satoshi provides a convenient way to parse through what Bitcoin's creator wrote over the span of the two years that constituted his "public life" before he disappeared from the Internet ... at least under the name Satoshi Nakamoto. Beginning on November 1st 2009 with the publication of the seminal paper describing Bitcoin, this public life ends at about the time PC World speculated as to a possible link between Bitcoin and WikiLeaks, the infamous website that publishes leaked classified materials. Was there a connection? You be the judge. Nakamoto's true identity may never be known. Therefore the writings reproduced here are probably all the world will ever hear from him concerning Bitcoin's creation, workings, and theoretical basis. Want to learn more about Bitcoin?

They stunned the world to show the power of a decentralized system in real time. Like the Voynich code Satoshi Nakamoto and the team around them seek to preserve their legacy in plain view. See if you can find the secrets they leave behind in many forms. Follow the journey from the beginning and see how much went into creating a platform designed with the guidance of nature itself is surpassing modern technology to create an amazing future. Data embedded in the past becomes immutable in the future when retrieved and the keys of decryption display the message left by those who encrypted it. If we claim to be cryptographers and do not have anything encrypted it seems we are not worthy of the name. In the future our generations will look back at those who fought to hold on to the old ways as barbaric. Once we used an outhouse and today we have a modern sanitary system that has cut down many diseases; this is how we view the system we built to clean up the corruption in a system that could not regulate itself. Onward.

Satoshi allowed Bitcoin to be very public, where the software and company codes can be accessed by any person across the world. This made it an open source company, encouraging users to trust in it thereby making Bitcoins popular and valuable.

Satoshi's Vision

Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? In 2008, the world of finance changed forever with the publication of a White Paper: Bitcoin: A Peer to Peer Electronic Cash System. Hard to believe, but bitcoin has been with us for a decade already. In that time, Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous author of the paper and creator of the bitcoin protocol, disappeared. In his absence, bitcoin underwent some drastic changes, resulting in hard forks in the code. Now, Craig Wright steps forward to explain why he chose to use a pseudonym, why he left, and why he returned. He outlines the issues facing bitcoin, and his plans for the future. Prepare for Satoshi's Vision: The Art of Bitcoin. Cryptocurrency will never be the same again.

The White Paper

The White Paper

Ignota Books publishes the original white paper by Satoshi Nakamoto on its tenth anniversary, providing a guide to the blockchain technology that is transforming our lives. In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto published a revolutionary white paper that described a simple peer-to-peer electronic cash system that would later become Bitcoin. In the decade since the launch of the digital currency, the nascent blockchain technology behind Bitcoin has been heralded as having the same radical potential as the printing press or the Internet, in particular presenting extraordinary challenges to traditional banking. Yet the paper contains no reference to existing political ideas, monetary or economic knowledge. Why? The White Paper returns to Nakamoto's canonical text as a Rosetta Stone that can serve as the compass for a rapidly shifting terrain of contemporary techno-politics. Crypto-economist Jaya Klara Brekke provides a guide and commentary, contextualising the paper for a wide readership and revealing the far-reaching implications of decentralisation. Also includes an introduction by acclaimed artist and technologist James Bridle situating Bitcoin within an obscure historical movement of decentralisation, showing how blockchain is part of a wider project to redraw the maps of political possibility.

The Bitcoin Dystopia

The Prelude

The Bitcoin Dystopia

Bitcoin, the brainchild of Satoshi Nakamoto, is as unfathomable as its elusive creator. Is it an instrument of exchange, like currency notes, or is it an investment tool? While many of us could still be grappling with the concept of cryptocurrency, fortunes have already been built and lost; lives have been impacted and, in some cases, ruined in this whole new uncharted universe of digital money. Piecing together published information from various sources, The Bitcoin Dystopia: The Prelude offers a bird’s eye view of the current state of affairs with regard to cryptocurrency and the larger world in which it is situated. At the same time, the book makes a bold prediction about the future of the world through a provocative storytelling approach that is atypical of non-fiction. Bitcoin is unorthodox and any attempt to grasp its impact should be anything but conventional.
