Bloomberg reveals real name of Bitcoin creator

Satoshi Nakamoto is the pseudonym under which the creator of the digital currency Bitcoin hides. Leading Bloomberg analyst Eric Balchunas named the real name of the man behind the creation of the largest and most expensive cryptocurrency.

According to the analyst, under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto there is a programmer Hal Finney. More precisely, was hiding - he died in 2014. Finney was a major supporter of Bitcoin at the birth of the digital currency. He was involved in the development of Bitcoin and conducted the debut transaction with the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto. It happened in the beginning of 2009.

The Bloomberg analyst came to such a conclusion after reviewing a material published by Hal Finney in 1993. In the article the programmer considers the idea of creating cryptocurrency cards that work almost on the same principle as the non-exchangeable tokens.
