On April 17, Misha Lederman, co-founder of IAmDecentralized.org, a consultant and adviser on international affairs and blockchain-startups, tweeted a poll about the identity of the creator of Bitcoin.


Misha Lederman and the secret of the Bitcoin-creator

The famous Bitcoin-enthusiast and popular blockchain-start-up specialist, Misha Lederman, posted a social survey on his Twitter account.  The secret of an anonymous  cryptocurrency "parent", of course, may be disclosed, but Lederman wondered whether this would benefit the cryptocurrency industry.

"Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin 10 years ago. Satoshi holds ~ 1 million BTC in Genesis Block-related wallets and a private key. Do you believe that Satoshi Nakamoto’s identity discovery will be a positive factor for the long-term growth of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency?" – Misha Lederman.

At the time of this writing, more than six hundred people voted. However, many believe that the anonymous identity of the cryptocurrency creator is a logical decision. According to users of the network, cryptocurrency as a decentralized industry should support anonymity and independence.

In addition, some users expressed suspicions that if Satoshi revealed his identity, he would immediately be killed by banks representatives and opponents of the cryptocurrency industry. 

"I think that soon banks and the government will kill him (...), life costs nothing for them"

The blockchain-expert, Misha Lederman, asked whether it was necessary to reveal the identity of the Bitcoin-creator, Satoshi Nakamoto. Recall that yesterday it became known that in the game Satoshi's Treasures three keys were cracked.
