Satoshi Nakamoto May Have A Book In The Worksbr>
Bloomberg News reporter Matthew Leising reports that Satoshi Nakamoto, the legendary “inventor” of bitcoin, may be working on a tell-all that will finally reveal details and name names. To date, little has been heard from the creator or creators, and much time has been spent determining the identity amidst false cclaims.
Bloomberg now reports that a cryptic message posted Friday at a website possibly linked to Satoshi Nakamoto indicates he (or she, or they) may be stepping forward. Interestingly, the web site indicates that Satoshi Nakamoto is a pseudonym, which would clear up one aspect of the great mystery if the post proves true.
The site’s message details the “first excerpt to a literary work consisting of two parts” that promises “a short story, if you will, with some of the most brought up questions and answers. I wanted the people and the facts to be known.”
The site also includes a cryptogram, which purports to reveal names related to the title of the book.
Bloomberg claims the answer to the cryptogram appears to be “honne and tatamae,” or “tatemae,” a Japanese expression that means “the contrast between a person’s true feelings and desires” and “the behavior and opinions one displays in public.”
The post goes on to claim, “I’m going to take a moment here to explain something. I know that some of you might be reading this or hearing about it for the first time, might not know, so I should state it publicly, although by now it is assumed, but has never been publicly stated before, so I will make it official: “Satoshi Nakamoto is not a real name. Specifically, not a legal name. It is primarily the essence of thoughts and reason.”
