Satoshi Nakamoto is already one of the fifty richest people on the planet according to the latest update of the Forbes list of millionaires. No one knows for sure who is the father or mother of Bitcoin, but the increasing value of his creation, which has reached $ 20,000 this weekend, has been enough to place this person or people on the list.

It is estimated that Nakamoto must have around 980,000 bitcoins to his credit , so he / she / they should have a personal fortune of around 19,400 million dollars to his credit according to Forbes calculations.

This places him / her in the 44th position of the richest people on the planet. It is just below personalities such as Stefan Persson, son of the creator of H & M, the widow of Steve Jobs, Laurene Powell Jobs, or Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. Under Nakamoto instead we have the billionaire prince Alwaleed bin Talal, investor of the Saudi royal family, or Theo Albrecht Jr., heir of the German retailer Aldi.

Just after reaching $ 20,000 in value, the Bitcoin went down almost $ 18,000, and now it returns to close to $ 19,000. Despite these changes, its value would still place Nakamoto among the 50 richest people on the planet. Not bad for the owner of a cryptocurrency whose value, at the beginning of this year, was only $ 1,000.

Okay, but who is Satoshi Nakamoto?


It seems incredible that the identity of the creator or creator of one of the most revolutionary technologies of recent decades is still unknown, but it is true. In recent years we have thought we knew several people who said or said they could be the parents of the cryptocurrency and the blockchain, but none of the cases has achieved any absolute certainty.

A couple of years ago and after several alleged Nakamotos, Wired and Gizmodo published that they had indications that Satoshi Nakamoto was really a former academic named Craig Steven Wright. They had deduced it after a joint investigation between the two media.

His research began when a researcher named Gwern Branwe published several studies related to cryptocurrencies. Among the documentation that he exhibited were several emails in which, trying to avoid any attention about him, they pointed out that Wright had a great fortune in Bitcoins.

Shortly after leaving this information Wright himself appeared before the press to ensure that yes, he was Satoshi Nakamoto, but the evidence he presented was clearly insufficient. Unable to prove himself to be Nakamoto, many called him a fraud, although since then he has taken advantage of this uncertainty to publicize some of his business initiatives based on the blockchain.

Therefore, today we know without knowing who created Bitcoin, and with everyone going crazy for the way in which the value of the cryptocurrency has soared, it seems difficult for us to have a secure answer. In fact, the question we ask ourselves more and more is whether we will ever really know who Satoshi Nakamoto is.
