Elon Musk Is Satoshi Nakamoto: New Circumstantial Evidence Supports An Old Rumor?
Satoshi Nakamoto is Elon Musk, and Elon Musk is Satoshi Nakamoto. Wait until you read the argument presented for this notion by a former SpaceX intern before you dismiss this at first.
Elon is considered by Sahil Gupta to be Satoshi. It has also always been an interesting theory, hot damn. According to Gupta, the co-founder of PayPal is most likely the one who invented Bitcoin.
Although this hypothesis isn’t brand-new, Gupta’s insightful study of the parallels between Nakamoto and Musk brings it to life once more.
In previous years, Musk has been forced to weakly dispute in a tweet that he is the one who invented Bitcoin.
Satoshi Nakamoto and Elon Musk Comparative
“A few years ago, I wondered whether Musk might be capable of writing the source code of Bitcoin. I then realized he actually is. Musk wrote the software for his first companies, Zip2 and X.com, which literally specialized in peer-to-peer payments. X.com’s source code was written in C++ and described as ‘monolithic’. So was Bitcoin’s.”
Gupta then parsed Satoshi’s forum posts.
“Satoshi’s use of ‘bloody hard’ and ‘order of magnitude’ were hallmark Musk expressions. Satoshi wrote with double spaces after a period. So did Musk. Later, an article had emerged that Satoshi once leaked an IP address in Van Nuys, Los Angeles in 2009. Oddly enough, SpaceX is adjacent to Van Nuys, and Musk frequents Van Nuys Airport.”
Gupta says that while there is no direct evidence Musk is Satoshi, there is a tsunami of circumstantial evidence. He said it has “the rare intersection of geographic location, technical ability, writing style, and motivating philosophy.”
Gupta asks himself whether it is good to put this thesis out into the world.
“Given that Musk more than once has tweet-joked about Satoshi, there probably is no great downside. At the same time, he hasn’t and wouldn’t take credit for being Satoshi unless the body of evidence is so overwhelming that the public understands it and demands he take credit. A few weeks ago, Peter Thiel said the United States should throw a ticker tape parade for Satoshi Nakamoto. Let’s see if he sticks to his word.”
Elon Musk and New “Proof”
Gupta did an internship at SpaceX… so he is close to the source. It was while working for SpaceX that he says he connected all the dots. Gupta says while it seems bizarre and fantastical, Satoshi Nakamoto and Elon Musk have common linguistic quirks.
