Could both e-cash.org and bitcoin.org domains have both been registered by Satoshi?

One thing I have always found rather peculiar about the initial communications from Satoshi in his first mail to Wei Dai on 8/22/08 was that he refers to his project as "Electronic Cash" and then he later substitutes this to "Bitcoin" when publishing the white paper. I find this odd considering that he had already registered the domain bitcoin.org on 8/18/08, so he must have already had the idea in his head at the time of the email that it would be called Bitcoin. The other thing I noticed was that the domain e-cash.org was also registered anonymously less than…

A CoinMarketCap listázta a Satoshit, a Bitcoin legkisebb egységét

A CoinMarketCap elérkezettnek látta az időt és listázta a Satoshit (SATS), a Bitcoin legkisebb egységét (1 Bitcoin = 100 millió Satoshi). A cikk írásának pillanatában a Satoshi a 4991. helyet foglalja el a listán és egy SATS egészen pontosan 0,00058 dollárt ér. Mike Novogratz szerint is ideje átállni A Satoshira történő átállást a Galaxy Digital vezérigazgatója, Mike Novogratz is támogatja. Novogratz szerint problémát jelent az, hogy nagyon sok ember túl drágának találja a Bitcoint, hiszen a túl magas ár az, ami visszatartja őket attól, hogy Bitcoinba fektessenek. Erre megoldást jelenthetne az, ha a Bitcoin legkisebb egységére, a Satoshira állnánk át,…

Today, Bitcoin’s Satoshi Nakamoto Turns 46

An online profile for the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, includes an auspicious birthday of April 5, 1975. Eighty-eight years ago today, the United States Federal government issued Executive Order 6102, making citizen’s private ownership of gold illegal. This egregious overstep of government-mandated monetary policy is, coincidentally, the chosen date of Satoshi Nakamoto’s birthday, according to the verified profile for the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin on the P2P Foundation Forums. It isn’t by accident that the profile reflects this date; Satoshi also chose the year as 1975, the year in which Executive Order 6102 was cancelled. The choice is…

Was Bitcoin originally designed to be easy to mine?

I’ve read that back around early 2009, Bitcoin was so easy to mine that an old laptop could mine hundreds of coins in a day by simply using a CPU. Was this Satoshi’s original idea for how people should mine Bitcoin, or did he try to design the system so that it could eventually be manipulated by GPU and ASIC farms, causing the difficulty to increase significantly?

The Genesis Files: How Hal Finney’s Quest For Digital Cash Led To RPOW (And More)

Once described by PGP creator Phil Zimmerman as “the Mister Rogers of cryptography,” Hal Finney (1956) was known for his relentlessly uplifting spirit. He carried a positive perspective on life with him even when amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) paralyzed his entire body, until the Bitcoin pioneer ultimately passed away from the disease on August 28, 2014. In the 1980s, as a graduate from the California Institute of Technology working in the startup computer game industry, Finney’s optimism made him fit in naturally with the Extropians. This Californian techno-libertarian movement drew much of its inspiration from Austrian economists and libertarian authors,…

Re-Mining Simulation Shows Satoshi Used a Single High-End PC to Mine 1.1M Bitcoin

Cryptocurrency advocates have been recently discussing the mysterious Bitcoin inventor Satoshi Nakamoto as the RSK’s chief scientist, Sergio Dermain Lerner, published a paper called “The Patoshi Mining Machine.” Essentially, Lerner simulated Satoshi’s mining experience. The findings estimate that Bitcoin’s creator used a single computer to mine an estimated 1 million bitcoin minted in the early days. Sergio Dermain Lerner is well known for publishing one of the first estimates backed by technical data in 2013 concerning Satoshi Nakamoto’s alleged stash of bitcoin. During the last seven years, Lerner has published a few more papers about this subject and it is…

Eltűnt bitcoinok nyomában – mennyi coinnak inthetünk búcsút örökre?

Köztudott, hogy a bitcoin forgalomban lévő készlete köszönőviszonyban sincs a fizikailag létező bitcoinok mennyiségével. De vajon pontosan mennyi coinnak inthetünk búcsút örökre? Ha a vezető kriptopénz ritkaságára terelődik a szó, sokaknak azonnal a bányászat szabályai, majd a feleződés ugrik be elsőre. Van azonban egy ennél „fenyegetőbb” tényező is. Figyelembe véve, hogy mindösszesen 12 év alatt a teljes bitcoinkészlet nagyjából 20%-a válhatott elérhetetlenné, egy olyan jövőkép sem kizárt, amelyben az egész világnak pár ezer bitcoinon kell majd osztozkodnia. A bűvös 21 millióból – ennyi a kibányászható bitcoinok felső határa – 18,5 millió már ezt a világot gazdagítja. Jelenleg tehát a valaha…
