Yesterday, an article was published in Steemit that claims to have discovered Satoshi Nakamoto’s true identity.
THE article was written by @dahype, an anonymous account, which was probably created specifically for the publication of this article.
According to @dahype, Satoshi Nakamoto is Dan Kaminsky, a computer security researcher best known for discovering the DNS cache poisoning (or DNS spoofing) vulnerability in 2008.
@Dahype’s reasoning begins with an analysis of Satoshi’s writing style on Bitcointalk and, in particular, the fact that he uses double spaces after each sentence.
This element is also found in a article of Kaminsky from 2016.
This article is actually Kaminsky’s refutation of the alleged proof of Craig Wright that he is the real Satoshi.
Clues about Nakamoto’s identity
It is worth remembering that the real Satoshi was certainly in contact with Craig Wright, and Dave Kleinman, with whom he created what we now know as Tulip Trust.
The double space clue is not only present in the 2016 report, but also in other reports on his blog, created in 1998.
Other clues include how to write well, the use of many commas and square brackets to add words to your thoughts.
In addition, both Satoshi and Kaminsky use refined language, are very passionate about computers, are computer scientists and love math and programming.
According to @dahype, this may be enough to say that Satoshi Nakamoto was the alias Kaminsky used to talk about Bitcoin.
In fact, other similar analyzes have been carried out in the past and have produced different results.
In other words, it is not a procedure that provides an unambiguous result. That is, the fact that there are several people who have a writing style similar to Satoshi’s means that the analysis of writing style cannot be considered proof of the discovery of Satoshi Nakamoto’s true identity.
