8 shocking facts about the father of Bitcoin
Apart from the great confusion, we know some things about him/her. Here are the 8 must-know facts about the inventor of Bitcoin:
1. They can be a team
There is not the proper identification of Satoshi Nakamoto and it is possible that “he” is, “she’ is and even “they” is. Some users used to say that it could be the group of four technology companies. Actually, Satoshi Nakamoto is the wordplay for Samsung, Toshiba, Nakamichi, and Motorola so people combined their initial letters and assumed that it was a group of these companies. Another fact which indicates that Satoshi Nakamoto can be a group is that he addresses himself as we and also I. Though we address himself as he for ease.
2.Net worth of Satoshi Nakamoto
It is also estimated that Satoshi Nakamoto holds around 1Million Bitcoin which means he is a Billionaire. Although it is the only estimation if they are a team then each member owns a big amount.
3. Satoshi lost the interest and leave the project
There are assumptions that Satoshi lost the interest in the project and left it. People are assuming that the coding in the project was too complex and he was unable to solve out some issues so he left. Some are saying that he is still here with the incognito name. Before leaving he created a post for Wikileak. So the people think that he was nervous about the attention of Wikileaks so he left. There are various sayings why he left but don’t know what is exact reason.
4.Nobel prize nominee
Satoshi Nakamoto was nominated for a Nobel prize in 2015. He was nominated for this pride in Economic Science and by Bhagwan Choudhary.
5. Satoshi’s T-shirts

There are T-shirts in the market having different sentences like I am Satoshi Nakamoto, Who is the Satoshi Nakamoto etc. People are buying them. If you want to buy them you can purchase from the e-commerce sites like Zazzle and Teespring.
6. Satoshi bought a pizza with the first Bitcoin transaction
The initial transaction with Bitcoin took place on 12 January 2009. It had happened between Satoshi and Hal Fenney and he bought a pizza with it. The cost of pizza was $25 and Satoshi paid 100 Bitcoin for it.
7. Satoshi spent only 500 Bitcoins
It has come into the limelight after examining the ledger that Satoshi had expanded only 500 Bitcoins from his huge property. It was .0005 percent of his entire wealth. I am really surprised with this face.
